Will post an update to the vbs and a new batch so it works fine tomorrow. There will now be 2 batch files and 1 vbs file.
I appreciate the time you're putting into enhancing this project. In the future, I hope to create Linux/Mac features similar to the scripts you are working on for Windows. :biggrin.gif:

i have a problem. when i try to open the .jar file, it says "the java jar file could not be launched" i am using a mac, but your thing says it should work on a mac. can anyone help?
I actually have barely used a Mac before so I'm not really sure why you are encountering this problem. I assume when you tried launching the JAR file you double-clicked? If this is the case, try running it from a terminal on your machine. Let me know what the terminal displays after you do this. You can run it with this command:
java -jar <full path to... MinecraftSavior.jar>
For example, in Ubuntu linux if I had MinecraftSavior.jar in a folder called Programs stored in my home folder, I could run it from the command line with:
java -jar /home/JS/Programs/MinecraftSavior.jar
Also, please let me know what the terminal says when you type the following command:

This program is frggin' epic! How the hell did you get it to compress the files so quickly?
I would gladly give you all the important resources I have on all my 4 saves and my server cuz i backed it up, and I can just restore that copy after giving the items to you. Here you go, have all my and
That's great to hear that MCS is working well for you! I worked with Java's zip classes for all the compression/decompression, and I think the results were very good!! And thank you for the resources! :happy.gif:
I believe vbs will work if you have wine installed, batch does work with or without wine just with a whole let less features working. I will try the vbs on wine once i finish updating the scripts. It should be done by this weekend.
If any one know of a screen recorder that works with livestream, please tell me!!
I wish I had found this earlier. Would've saved my first house...
Thanks for trying MCS out, and I am glad it is working great for you! :happy.gif:

I currently have vista and just downloaded minecraft saviour.
However, it wont let me open it and keeps requesting which program i should open it with.
Like rzork was saying, you will need a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in order to run the executable JAR file. Though, if you play Minecraft you should have one already. If you get the chance, open up a command prompt, type this in, and let me know what it says:
Note: If it spits something out about java not being in the PATH, you can edit your system variables to add it in there. Java PATH tutorial
Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am by this program. I once lost a save file because I had to reformat the computer, so I searched for a backup utility. I can now keep backups easily on a separate harddrive and never worry again.
Hey JS, this is a reallly nice application. Very useful, very fast I like it. I only have one minor suggestion: On the mac version the menu bar is in the actual application window which isn't the norm for Mac OS X applications, you could try something like this to fix that:
String OSname = System.getProperty("os.name").toLowerCase();
if(OSname.contains("mac os x")
Also on the mac (I don't know about other OSes) the JPanels that are inside the JTabbedPanel are a slightly lighter color which is usually because they are set to opaque.
@Z-Man3359: I'll add use of the screen menu bar to my current build when I get a chance. I didn't realize Mac applications worked that way. I can't test it though myself. (don't own a Mac and neither do my friends/family XD) As far as the JPanel colors go, my current build uses each OS's look and feel, and that's shaping up really nicely in Ubuntu and W7. That might take care of the JPanel look. Thanks for the pro tips! :biggrin.gif:
Well, I have been using this as a way to backup my server files. Since I like to make sure I have daily backups, this allows me to quickly bring the server down, backup, and get it back up and running. It has minimized our downtime for manual backups.
So far I haven't found anything wrong with the Windows version. Awesome job!
I find your program to be useless to Minecraft *Players*.
Minecraft is about creating anything you want to serve any purpose. Many times people build something in the game just for the sake of building it, and it is also very community-driven (see: this forum). When I created MCS, didn't I extend this philosophy? It is entirely free software, which is also a very community-driven movement. If you wish to put yourself on a pedestal, be my guest, but I do sincerely hope MCS helps you when you find that
