I seem to be having an issue. When people die now, their dropped itms just disappear. This started yesterday when I installed this mod. No error just nothing there when you get back. Just thought I would let you knw.
Well, this sucks. I was trying to set up an elevator and my guy ended up in the cart with a sign stuck in it. Could not get out could not destroy the sign and could not destroy the cart.
I logged out and back in and died instantly loosing all of my mats. Respawned and went back there and no mats and my guy was still there stuck in the cart/sign.
I shut down the server and brought it back up and went to log in and there was an update that got loaded.
Now can't play at all. There is an error message and you get bounced back to the launch screen.
This totally sucks!
The message says downloading terrain then an error message.
Internal exception: java.io.UTFDataFormatException: malformed input around byte 6
I had this issue before. It's either:
Server needs updated. Copy the world(s) out of the server folder then reinstall the server. From what I know, most modified servers are not up to date, but the one on minecraft.net is up to date.
After deleting the server, saving the world and other settings/mods for later use, start up a completely new fresh server, let it make a world just in case. Log in, if successful, log out, shut down the server, delete the New World and put yours in, start up the server and log in.
If you ran any special mods, I really can't explain the effects. I know on my single player world I can't access a chest due to stacked items, I think.
If anything else, you may need to update your firewall settings for Minecraft and Java. I don't know what I did to my Zonealarm to allow my server and client and have no issues, but that lasted a day till the update came out today. Eh... (Can't stop using zonealarm or my family who is paying for part of my college will, well you get the idea...)
Anyways, I and my friends in my dorm love this mod, had a air system going on for the fun of it, can't wait till I can get it on the new updated server again soon.
This is kinda a question to all but, is there a way to revert my Minecraft Version back to 1.2.6? I really like this mod but after the update I cant play it. Please help.
Actually, yes, there is. You can use binary difference files to convert it back. This is NOT illegal, since it contains only the minimal information needed to make the change, not the full .jar file. JojoDiff and XDelta both work just fine, and you can probably convince someone less busy to make a diff file for either of them. After that, remember to back up your minecraft.jar so you don't have to do so again.
Though really, it's not that hard to use Google. I don't condone obtaining copies of Minecraft from other sources, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out how.
