    posted a message on Players are always OP on server, I (server creator) am not

    Yea, people can't just mysteriously become OP. Either you have a malicious plugin/mod or a bad configuration. Properly configured, nobody can be op'd until you do it for them.


    Also ROFL.. did you seriously censor your UUID? That's public information you know heh. e.g. your UUID is 0458b9e9-0d9e-4c35-b2f2-8a421cb3b0df and Donut's is c290fb0d-8a9f-4e18-b08b-e53fa10faf7d :)

    posted a message on start.bat not working after installing JDK

    Did you uninstall the old one after installing the new one? Are you just double clicking the batch file from explorer or are you running it from a command prompt?

    Quote from ll_J_Cat_ll»

    Lol yea I disagree


    Uhhh


    Hey guys, my realm keeps getting hacked and people are setting up hundreds of schedules give commands to crash the server.

    Kinda sounds like that's the case, lol. Tails is absolutely correct; If you want serious, powerful protection tools you need to get away from realms and get something like a Spigot server.

    They're wildly different, especially from a content creator standpoint.

    This forum is fairly dead, you're probably better off checking at SpigotMC.org, it has a very active developer base.

    posted a message on "Recovered" 9 year old screenshots & world files

    It's honestly amazing you recovered anything from a drive that was was used after deleting the files. On a non SSD, formatting/deleting doesn't actually delete the data, just marks those sectors as available for writing. You got lucky in that the files you were able to get were on sectors that were not reused down the road. Problem is, most of the data you shared is hopelessly corrupted by overwrites. One of your image files has what appears to be stuff from some FPS in it, lol. I ran a file carving tool against the images (as I don't know of any carvers that will identify Mojang files) and it only recovered two images; but neither are of any relevance. One is a blue t-shirt with the Firefox logo on it and the other is a Winternals logo banner.

    All you'd need to do is update the file then send a reload command to the server.

    It could be a problem with your player data file, try moving it out of (world folder)\playerdata then login and see if you are still untouchable.

    posted a message on Mom needs help! Birthday gift! VIDEO CARD

    It's better, but only marginally. Honestly, you are better just saving that $100 toward a new PC. I wouldn't put any more money into such an outdated machine. That video card, while being slightly better than the integrated graphics, is still a super outdated boat anchor.

    posted a message on What Operating System do you use?

    It's hip to hate on Windows, but I love it. Windows 10, even though it has some warts, is a pretty good. My first PC was using MS-DOS so I was on the Microsoft path from the get go, and given how complex and problematic it can be at times it provides great earning opportunities in a technical career, heh. I have a Macbook Pro so I can dabble with OSX and an Ubuntu VM for when I want to mess around with linux. But 99.5% of my computer usage is Windows related.

    posted a message on how much screen time do your parents give you?

    It's not good to totally isolate them from technology; I trained my kid from an early age in IT as I'm a 30 year IT veteran myself. The key is to not let them turn into the kids who sit there all day playing games and getting fat, lol. Society is very tech integrated, so it's good for them to have skills going into adult life.

    posted a message on How do you change fn keys?

    You could use AutoHotKey or any other macro program. Like if I had this problem, I would map numeric keypad to the F keys. Like 1-9 F1-F9, 0 = F10 then . for F11 and uhh I guess + for F12. With AutoHotKey, you'd just need a simple macro like:


    Numpad1::
      Send {F1}
    Return
    
    Numpad2::
      Send {F2}
    Return

    ..etc


    EDIT: Oops, I'm dumb. Most laptops prolly don't have numeric keypads, eh? lol in that case I'd do like ALT and 1-0/-/= for 1-12. That'd be like

    #IfWinActive Minecraft 1.16
    !1::
      Send {F1}
    Return

    ALso I forgot the window directive earlier. Otherwise any use anywhere of the assigned keys would trigger the macro. Obviously, change the title to whatever your window title is. Don't just use "Minecraft".. I did that and found my macro triggering when going to websites with Minecraft titles and such lol

    posted a message on Creating a Minecraft Server for Dummies

    Agreed. Spaces are the devil, lol.


    Also I can't recall if OSX hides extensions or not, but if it does then the file may really be named minecraft_server.1.16.5.jar.jar on your drive in that case.


    Ultimately the filename is irrelevant... you could call it MySuperAwesomeServerFile.jar and it would work perfectly well, lol. You just have to be 100% sure the name of the file on the drive exactly matches the name in the startup script, and that at time of execution you are in the same folder as said file.

    posted a message on Creating a Minecraft Server for Dummies

    You saved the start file as RTF, that's not right. I just tried TextEdit, it doesn't let me save as a basic no frills text file so don't use that. Delete the file you made. I don't know OSX well. I have a Macbook Pro, but I only use it occasionally for work stuff. I just went through the steps keystroke by keystroke to make it work. This assumes you want 1 GB of RAM for the server and that the folder on the desktop is named "Server". Don't assume new line = press enter, only press enter when I say. Things in { } mean hit that key, don't actually type that. Open terminal and type:


    cd Desktop/Server {ENTER}
    vi go.command {ENTER}
    i
    #!/bin/bash {ENTER}
    java -Xms1G -Xmx1G -jar minecraft_server.1.16.5.jar nogui
    {ESC}
    :
    wq {ENTER}
    chmod +x go.command {ENTER}
    echo eula=true>eula.txt {ENTER}
    ./go {TAB} {ENTER}


    That should work, assuming your jar is named minecraft_server.1.16.5.jar and you have the Server folder on the desktop with said jar in it.
