By my properties file it says "resource-pack-sha1=" and when I put in the direct link it had an error and no message popped up at all when I join.
EDIT: It also has a tab which says "resource-pack=" but when I put in the DIRECT link (ending with .zip) it says this in the command prompt "You specified a resource pack without providing a sha1 hash. Pack will be updated on the client only if you change the name of the pack." BTW I still have the "resource-pack-sha1=" tab but it has nothing after the =.
EDIT 2: The link also changes (when I run the "Run.bat" file) from http://... to http\://...
EDIT 3: I put in the sha1 of the link at "resource-pack-sha1=" but now it has no error in the command prompt and does nothing in game. Please Help!!!!!!!
EDIT 4: I want people on my server to use a resource pack from someone else, but it's 128* (whatever that's supposed to mean) and is that the issue??? HELP!!!
This thread is being locked. It was started in 2013 and since that time has been continuously necro-posted, hijacked, and filled with bad information and guess work. This does not help anyone.
If you are having issues setting a resource pack as an automatic download for your server, please create your own thread in the Server Support Forum. That is the appropriate place to ask about server features.
