Thank you SO MUCH for starting clean with a new thread. Also, thanks for keeping this neglected wrapper up to date :biggrin.gif:
I need help with bukkit though. I have it running in SS, but I can't use any plugin commands. Such as /weather, I add permission for the command in permissions.xml, but SS acts as if the command doesn't exist.
Nice, I remember that I was looking for something that could protect areas when I started to look for stuff. I thought that's what SimpleServer meant with a "blocklist." Now that I'm too familiar with WorldGuard... well, it's simple user-based protection, which I guess I could use as a feature for those in the survival side of my world.
XML files. Yay. Well, I guess I have to get used to them. If an xml file means less txt files... well I think that's a good thing, then (I haven't tried it yet).
I'm also used to the Permissions plugin... :tongue.gif: Well, these are only bonuses. Did you decide to drop the customauth feature? Or is it still planned...
I was trying RCON out today - but it failed horribly. It would detect a connection, but when I type something, it would print numbers... Hopefully the Telnet client will be more successful.
Did you really fix the Bukkit console incompatibility problem? Well, we still need to use the unsupport terminal command line. But at least you got rid of the spacing it caused.
Update: The XML files took not too long to learn, thanks to the examples via the converted files. It also looks like unknown commands are passed to the mod, which is good for what I have. (Or maybe something due to useSMPAPI?) I couldn't get colors with the helptext.txt, and it looks like custom help commands aren't available (yet). But I think I'll stick with MCDocs (a Bukkit plugin), since I know what I'm doing with that. If you want to add this feature, I'm not stopping you, but I would think that those who use a mod usually have a plugin that displays some sort of help menu (Like "Help") or have a document program for that purpose... Otherwise, the features are overwhelming, but great! (Well, you are going a little too fast :wink.gif:
RCON does not work and did not really work ever in the past... this is a known issue, but not a priority..
The telnet client should work, but be warned that you can't see the results of your commands on the telnet interface.. but this MIGHT come in the future (would require to change A LOT)
To make yourself admin, add
<player name="younickname" group="5" />
within the <members> section of the permissions.xml.
Note that 5 is the default admin group if you have a DEFAULT config, if you converted from the old SimpleServer version, the admin/owner group shall be 4..
After you yourself are admin, you can make other players admin with !setgroup, as iBotPeaches already pointed out..
There is currently no way to edit the XML file in an other way as manually, but it is not tooo complex.. If someone would create a graphical permissions and/or area editor (for areas this would be most useful I think!), it would be awesome! But be warned that it might get more and more features over time... I chose XML just because of this - it is very extensible while being still maintainable by humans (if designed well)...
In our wiki is a guide to permissions.xml that should make everything more or less clear...
You can disable message wrapping for player chat messages by setting msgWrap=false in the simpleserver.properties file.
[quote=The PC Tech Guy]Did you decide to drop the customauth feature? Or is it still planned...[/quote]
It's still planned and currently in developpment. The release should be with 8.1, hope you can wait until then... :wink.gif:
You may see planned features and reported bugs on github.
[quote=Chase817]Is there a reason for that ugly text wrap in chat while using Bukkit?[/quote]
This is most likely caused by a different wrapping of messages by SimpleServer and Bukkit. (so they wrap twice...)
You should be able to easily adjust this by setting the msgWrap option in simpleserver.properties to false.
SimpleServer 8.0.4 released
* better handling of permissions.xml files with errors (prevents overwriting with an empty or broken file),
* nickname case insensitive,
* no user relogin required, if his group changes in permission.xml and is loaded with /reload
I keep getting the error
This error can come because of 2 reasons: Either there is already a real Server running on that port, or there is some "ghost" process still blocking it from a server you think you shut down (but it did not really)...
look in the taskmanager whether there is some java process there should not be and kill it.. or, as the last means, reboot...
He's talking about the Windows Command Prompt window that open when you run SimpleServer.
And as far as I am aware, this is a bug with the wrapper at this time. Not sure if they are working to fix it.[/quote]
I'm not using Windows, therefore I can't verify or fix it.[/quote]
I can't help with fixing it, but I can definitely verify it, at least on Win7 x64.
edit: More specifically, it does not show user input until enter is pressed.[/quote]
Sorry for quote chain, but yes, it is a definite thing in Windows.
Personally it doesn't bother me, as most changes I make, I make directly into the config files (v7.something atm) or in game via the /rcon command.
Only time it becomes a problem is when entering a /say command from the server commandline and you cant see what your writing. Do you experience this on your system Sadimusi? Or does the commandline show what you type as you type it?
I have a feeling it is the way which the wrapper hides the commands from the vanilla server that is effecting windows' ability to display the input
Dude this is awesome i havent had time to look through the whole thing yet but could i make it like group "0" could only place or destroy dirt and like only "4"+ could place brick because that would be cool and could u do that with items? thanks. X1000000000000000000(alot)
