    What do you mean by "I lost my email"? You can't remember what your email address is? Or you can't access your email anymore?

    posted a message on Minecraft server admin asked for remote access to machine

    Indeed my son insisted, 'This is normal. Its what happens on Minecraft'. From a child safety point of view, I was horrified!


    It isn't normal though. I've been playing for eight years. I admin three servers, I routinely play on a number of others, this is the first time I've come across this practice.

    Also, "If they ban you for not letting them remote into your machine" was absolutly not what I was doing. :D It was after already banning person when I or other member was like on 99% thinking it is cheating.


    No no, I get it. I worded that wrong. You ban then for suspicion of cheating, which I totally get, then you refuse to lift the ban if they won't let you in to inspect their machine.


    Never let some dude on the internet remote into your PC. Being a Minecraft server admin does not somehow make them trustworthy.


    Find another server to play on.


    Also, if some dude on the internet remoted into my child's PC without parental consent, I would be calling the FBI.

    I've never heard of this happening on a Minecraft server before, and I would never let any admin do this. Besides, it would be easy enough remove any incriminating evidence from the .minecraft folder before they got in to look, and then just put it back in afterward.


    This is an absolutely horrible practice. If they ban you for not letting them remote into your machine, find another server to play on. This is asinine.

    glDebugVerbosity:1

    & as for mods i only have these 2 which makes no sense

    And another bit of general information, I AFK on a public mc server
    and i AFK over night


    Yeah, neither of those should be causing that log file to be that big. When you open that log file, are there a lot of errors in it? I'm very curious about what is in the file.


    As another poster said, you may have a corrupt world that could be filling up your log file with errors.

    Open your options.txt file, and look for an entry called "glDebugVerbosity". What is that set to?

    Not that I can find.


    48G is outrageous for a latest.log file. Mine never get more than 20K or so. Do you have a lot of mods running? I can't imagine what is putting that much information into that log file.


    If you delete it, how long does it take it to get that big again?

    Depends on how far back you want to go. Trying to use newer worlds with older versions of Minecraft is going to lead to all sorts of problems.

    log out of the launcher fully, restart the launcher, and log back in


    If this doesn't work, open a ticket with Mojang.

    People just need to chill out, and listen to what the video actually said. Maybe start there, instead of reading the worst possible outcome into everything they see.

    posted a message on How do I port forward a server?

    The general idea is always the same, but without knowing what the UI for your router looks like, it's going to be pretty difficult to walk you through this.


    I have no idea what your knowledge of computers and basic networking is, so forgive me if I over simplify things, or don't simplify them enough.


    A few tips:


    First, assign a static IP to the PC hosting the server, if it doesn't have one already. You can set up your port forward properly, but then end up getting a different IP next time you turn on your PC, and now your port forward is forwarding traffic to the wrong IP.


    When doing this, you also want to make sure that it's an IP address that is outside the range of IPs that your router hands out to your network, so that it doesn't try to assign your PC's IP address to another device in the house. IP conflicts can cause all kinds of havoc.


    So somewhere in the router's interface, you should see something about DHCP. This is the service that hands IPs out to devices on your network. You're looking for the IP range, pool, scope... different routers will call it different things. What you're looking for is somewhere that you can tell it which IP addresses you want it to give out. So if it's using 192.168.0.whatever, tell it you want it to hand out IP addresses between 192.168.0.100 and 192.168.0.200. This may or may not require you to restart the router.


    Then go into your network adapter settings on your PC, and give it something like 192.168.0.50. This will ensure that the router doesn't create IP conflicts.


    Then go into your router and tell it to forward all traffic over port 25565, to 192.168.0.50.


    After this, depending on how smart your router is, you may have to poke around in the firewall settings and make sure that it's allowing traffic in over port 25565.


    Next, make sure the firewall on your PC allows traffic in over port 25565. It might be using the standard Windows firewall (assuming you're using Windows), or your antivirus may be using it's own firewall. If it's the standard Windows firewall, it does a fairly good job of walking you through it.


    When all this is done, open up a browser and go to https://www.whatismyip.com. The IPv4 IP address you see there is the one you give to your friends.

    posted a message on Microsoft's recent move with the account migration PROVES they want to merge Bedrock & Java
    Quote from SuntannedDuck2»

    The thing that confuses me the most is Mac & Linux users, what do they do in this situation? Is it the same as the PS4 version when it had MS account support. In short I'm on the fence, I do agree with security but I've never had any issues either, but I do see where people are coming from with control, money, a game merger and so on, as they are "possibilities".


    I don't see what would change. The launcher will still run on Java, and authentication will still be done through that launcher, so I don't understand what the problem would be here. I play on Linux, and I don't foresee any issues here.


    Regarding "I do agree with security but I've never had any issues", this sort of attitude drives those of us in infosec absolutely nuts. Just because something hasn't happened, doesn't mean it won't happen, and the longer you go on using outdated forms of security, the higher your risk of getting compromised. 2FA should have been implemented years ago.


    The only thing that will make the Java version go away, is if Java itself goes away. Doing so would completely wipe out the mod community overnight, and alienate an absolutely massive portion of the Minecraft userbase. Microsoft is greedy, but not stupid. Granted, I don't trust Microsoft at all, but I do trust the staff at Mojang, and I'm perfectly comfortable taking their word that Java won't be going away, which Jens and others have repeated many times over the years.

    Need more details. Are you talking about how to start a server? How to create a new world in Minecraft? What to do once you've entered a new world?
