I'm having a weird Issue on my server where if anyone types anything into a sign it just comes up as !?!?!
after they press enter. Not sure what to do about it or whats causing it!
^^ This also causes a great deal of issues with hMod plugins as some of the best require signs.
My next problem is HUGE 50 by 50 Block Chunk Errors! Its insane :S Causes a lot of people to get mad at me, and Im not exactly sure why its happening.
Download Bukkit and CraftBukkit to a directory. This is the API and the Server software built by hudson.
Later, you would presumably use the Stable official builds.
Create a .bat file with:
java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
in the same directory.
Double click to start the server (this creates the sub directories)
type in stop to stop it
Granted, it's almost unusable, but I've had Groups, iStick and WorldEdit running on it fine.
They happen to me too, and I'm only using the vanilla server software. No plugins or anything. If I were to guess, (cause I'm definitely not about to look in the code to find the issue) it has to do with the bug-iness of the current SMP. Unlike the single player variant, the server world generator seems to get hung up when rendering chunks, and seems to occasionally leave them out entirely.
What I've found is that sometimes (assuming you're in control of the server), if you get everyone to log out, and shut the software thats running the server down (by stopping the .jar file, closing the window, whatever), give it a few minutes, and have everyone log back in, it's gone. sometimes. Or, try placing a block along its edge. sometimes when I place a block, the entire column of blocks underneath it right down to the void gets generated, so I've repaired pits just by covering up the top. But for the most part, you can't really do anything except for build over it with solid block so no one but admins can remove, and post warning signs. good luck!

The ultimate paradox:
Notch inspires creativity by creating Minecraft.
Notch destroys creativity by creating creepers.
I get rid of them by using World Edit to cover them up, and then do //undo. It goes away. But I have had a few members just get up and leave because of them. But Now I know its nothing something IM doing, so its good. Ill just deal with it. Thanks though!
Yeah... I REALLY need help with this sign error.
It literally makes no scene! Ive tried it with no mods, and even on different versions of hey0! It doesn't work at all :S
Maybe this is a call to upgrade to bukkit?
