    posted a message on Server Advice
    I host a server locally on my custom built gaming computer (ironically has one gig of ram..) and I've had a max player base of five so far (just some friends from school and in the neighborhood, nothing special..). It runs fine with absolutly no lag with the exception of me playing another game while it is up (and even then it isn't that laggy..). More and more of my friends are purchasing Minecraft and I know that one gig will only get me so far and the players frown on (but are very tolerent of..) the non-dedicated-ness of the server. I don't have an income (yea, senior in highschool with no job..) but my parents give me an allowance of fifteen dollars a week. With a portion of this money, I was thinking about purchasing a server from brohost.

    Pros:
    -Dedicated
    -More Members (even go public!)
    -Less Lagg
    -Bukket Support
    -and More

    Cons:
    -Cost (with only sixty dollars a month [and I like to go out with my girlfriend], a server of a good size would be a good chunk from that money)
    -Uneducated (I am not familliar with Bukkit nor brohost)
    -Lose Vanilla Status
    -Lack of Paypal Account
    -Waste (If my friends stop playing or not that many come on much anymore, I will feel like it is a waste of time and money and stop the server)

    Given this, I am asking advice from the community on how it should be done.

    Thanks,
    +FR33K

    No problem Freek. Once you sift through the useless, putrile posts made by most of the users, you can eventually find one helpful post.

    Let me FURTHER that by saying this was the problem:

    The old HD Patcher no longer works, I am assuming you used it?
    Use the new Beta HD Patcher that can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=1021&t=252531

    I instructed all my users to use it as well and they have been problem free since.

    Glad I could help.

    That is probably what it was. Thanks again! :iapprove:

    Okay, I make a thread asking for help because one of my favorite games of all time isn't working, yet I am harassed, flamed, trolled, and called a pirate? I don't know how the relevance to my computer skills has to do with Minecraft and getting my server working again, I don't understand on why people can't grasp that I have everything updated, installed and reinstalled, and nothing has changed to my setup / internet, I don't understand why people are changing quotes and editing their statements to make me look like a dumbass, and of all how people think I pirated the game! My account is legit and I despise pirates! To be honest, I didn't buy my account. My friend bought me and about four others accounts during alpha and we repaid him by helping him run his server which turned into Olympus Minecraft.

    If anyone cares at this point, I have some RELEVANT information:

    We all took off our texture packs and everything runs fine now. Thank you dabbigman for your HELPFUL post.

    Damn this is the last time I am asking for help on the forums..

    Title Of post : Notch Ruined Minecraft for me.

    Thinking about the Post : Notch Created Minecraft for me.

    As in the previous statements above, if he created Minecraft for ME, why the hell won't it work for me, I have more blocks and better items, a large ass sign hailing my glory whenever I start the game, my face isn't the mojang logo, and a good deal more list of demands? He created Minecraft for US and if he made it for ME, I'm pretty sure none of you assholes would be playing it.

    Just curious Freek, are you using a texture pack?

    This is what caused all of my problems and my friends.

    I use Egyptcraft. Ours is a Egyptian themed server and all of our memebers have it. Could that be what it is?

    Probably not the best thing to say being as it seems you can't?

    The line "I can't even join other multiplayer servers, it just sets there saying logging in and then flashes the connection error. " tends to denote that it is your PC/router/net/Settings/connection/inabilty that is causing the issue, NOT Minecraft.

    Everything worked fine until this update. Literally nothing has changed to my computer or internet since when it did work.

    Let me clarify what these people are saying to you:

    1. Delete your existing minecraft_server.jar, regardless of what version it is.
    2. Go download the latest one, regardless of what version the old one was.
    3. Delete your .minecraft/bin folder, regardless of what version it is.
    4. Delete your minecraft.exe launcher, regardless of what version it is.
    5. Re-download the latest launcher, and get the latest minecraft client.

    In other words, go double-check everything instead of spending time picking out forum text colors and fonts to yell at us in.


    I have already done this with same results multiple times.

    Editing quotes is bad, he didnt have kid on the end of his post.

    And you say "ooh, i fix computers yet i dont know what parts are loolololol"
    Then you can't work on computers because you don't know which part is which and thus which goes where and which connects to which. Stop lying.
    And, you clearly haven't updated the server and saying you have as if expecting one of us to do it for you is arrogant, demeaning, and overall annoying. The problems you stated are ones that happen because your server is NOT updated. Period. They don't happen because notch hates you. It's your problem that you are refusing to fix. If you followed the advice in the thread, you would of fixed it by now.

    I know what parts are. I may not know some of the names but I can get the job done..or does my rank of highest grade in the class lie? I haven't lied about any of this. I did update the server. I even tried to run it from my laptop and still the same results. The game doesn't work for me and nothing has changed in my setup nor my internet. The only thing that has changed is the recent update. Finally, I will repeat one last time.. EVERYTHING IS UPDATED

    P.S. I never touched his quote. Either he did or a mod. He could have changed what he said after I quoted but I never changed it...kthxbai troll..

    My favorite bug in 1.5_01 is the "do anything and the game crashes" bug.

    That one is great.


    That was a good bug XD

    in response to title: Notch Created Minecraft for You

    Notch ruined minecraft for me does not mean he is saying this was specifically made for him.

    If he were to release a patch that made what you liked to do impossible/ruined, then the game could be ruined FOR you.

    OT: Sorry I don't know how to help Fr33k, but this is why I have pretty much quit multiplayer (constant unable to connect problems). Well, this and the bugs.

    Finally someone who gets what I mean. and it's okay.

    Do you have a firewall that is possibly on? That was my problem...


    Off-topic, Fr33kshow? How much RAM do you need for those ten people, do you have a server computer?


    No firewall. And I have 1 gig ram and it runs fine. (Which surprised me)

    There is a massive problem with the software. If you go look at the bugs list, you will see why.

    My users get endofstream errors all the time as well.

    thanks. I don't feel like a dumb ass anymore seeing I'm not the only one with the errors lol.

    go to the miencraft.net site, and redownload the server software. There was a server-only update. The server is on minecraft server version 1.5_01


    Update your software and quit your complaining.

    did you get the new severlancher exe thing?

    I don't know what that is..


    SERIOUSLY!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? You don't even know how to use the server correctly, nor apparently what it is, yet you are hosting a server and throwing a fit and blaming it on notch when something goes wrong.


    Where is your logic?

    I said everything is up to date, I know how to run a server correctly, I just don't understand the terms of things. I'm like that. I work on computers for the school and for money on the side. I can't even tell you the parts but I guarantee I am one of the fastest workers in our group on getting things done. I probably do know what your talking about, just not the proper term. And as I said before, I have the newest and most updated version of everything!!!
