    I ran into this problem the other day as well. It seems to only happen with the 1.9pre jar.

    Anyway, I've fixed the code and uploaded a 1.9pre2-compatible jar here. Please, check it out and make sure it works for you.

    (Edit: My first updated version broke the GUI, so I re-fixed that. I've also updated my first post with the new link.)

    Seems to work fine, did a test render from scratch and the color gradations are there. This is very good news because people who tried the 1.9 pre-release would wind up with hung BiomeExtractor processes eating 100% CPU, and I've been having to go through and find/kill those by hand since we do map updates twice a day.

    Also, someone asked how you load both the client and server jars from the command line in Linux but I think they deleted their post. In case anyone needs to know, this is how you do it:

    java -jar BiomeExtractor.jar -jar /path/to/minecraft_server.jar -nogui world/


    It will look in ~/.minecraft/bin to find the client minecraft.jar, so you don't have to specify it on the commandline, but make sure it's there.

    Strange. It's working for me on 1.8.1 and 1.9pre with client jars. Here's the log I get, for reference:

    Discovering minecraft.jar interface...

    You seem to have completely different class names than I do, and different numbers of achievements and recipes to boot. Are you sure it was a 1.8.1 jar?

    Have you installed any mods that might have changed the class signatures enough to prevent binding?

    I'm using a 1.8.1 jar. I never used to have to load the server jar, but I saw earlier in the thread that someone was doing that, so I tried it and it did in fact work.

    The version I updated for 1.8 (download found here, linked in this thread here) seems to work fine with the new 1.9 prerelease.

    Does it not work for you?

    I tried - it doesn't work for me on 1.8.1.

    Review the above messages to see if there's anything you can do about it.
    If not, check online for a new version.


    Any ideas? It's using a 1.8.1 jar.

    EDIT: n/m, looks like I have to load the minecraft server jar as well - got it figured out. Thank you!

    Whe did you get those stats?

    http://www.loopinsight.com/2011/04/28/the-truth-about-android-vs-iphone-market-share/

    I'm just curious if there is a definative market share amount published somewhere

    I wasn't able to find the original article I read that in (was a few months ago.) I did a little digging, and here are some more stats:

    http://www.osnews.com/story/24196/Android_Leads_in_New_Purchases_iOS_in_Installed_Base
    http://www.intomobile.com/2011/03/07/android-leads-us-market-blackberry-and-iphone-not-far-behind/

    According to what I just found (which conflicts with the article I read a few months ago) the iOS install base is higher, but Android is growing faster than iOS did when it was the same age, and it's showing steady growth - whereas iOS is flat. It occurs to me that for Mojang, Android is a much easier choice, because you can actually run Java apps on it.

    If I had my way, WebOS would dominate the market, because it's by far the easiest to use. (And it runs Java.)

    e.e First? hehehe I bet an idiot will get mad. Why not on the iPhone? It will get alot of money faster that way.

    Twice as many people are using Android phones, so I'm thinking it'll probably work the other way around.

    Hell yes. Vegas is awesome, and in November, the temperature is actually tolerable. I'll be there.

    To those who say, "Why Vegas?" Well, I have been to other conventions for other communities and everyone always complains no matter where it is. Some communities address this by moving locations each year. Maybe next year it will be in a more central location, like Washington, DC. That would adequately serve both US and EU populations, I think.

    What's your Java command line? Is anything happening in the log files that might tell you why usage is that high? If you are on Linux, what does iowait look like? Is the drive the server is on out of space?

    Another thing you can do is download Chunkster or pymclevel and let them analyze the map. They should be able to fix any errors.

    posted a message on Is Hamachi safe for SMP servers?
    Hamachi is a little safer than port forwarding, but it isn't perfectly safe. I know people who have had their computers broken into over the internet - and all of them got exploited by people they knew. You need to give someone a password to connect to your network over Hamachi, but if that person is the kind of person who breaks into their friends' computers, you're out of luck. If anything, it makes it easier, because they have full access to your network. Port forwarding opens only one port, and that port just goes to Minecraft.

    The risk with Minecraft is that there could be some security flaw in the Minecraft server that allows an attacker to get in and run around on your machine. If this bugs you, you could download VirtualBox (free) and use it to create a virtual computer that runs under Windows. Then, you can install MineOS (or just plane Linux) on that, and if an attacker manages to break into it, all they have access to is that virtual machine that has nothing on it aside from your Minecraft server. They would have access to do things like scanning your network, and if you have any shares that aren't password protected, or your copy of Windows has unpatched security flaws, they can get in that way.

    Now, if your laptop has nothing on it that you care about, you can skip the VirtualBox/MineOS thing completely. You still need to make sure your shares (if you have any) are password-protected, and that your copy of Windows is up to date on patches.

    posted a message on Server help: Plugin errors that I can't understand.
    Oooooh, I think I see what you did.

        Admins:
            default: false
            info:
                prefix: '&f[&cAdmin&f] '
                suffix: ''
                build: true
                rank: 7
                plimit: 6
            inheritance: null
            permissions:
            - '*'
            - jail.*
        Donator:
            default: false
            info:
                prefix: ''
                suffix: ''
                build: true
                rank: 2
            inheritance: member
            permissions:
            - ''

    See how, under permissions, the - '*', - jail.*, etc. are at the same indentation as permissions:?

    They need to be indented four more spaces.

    Also, try the asterisk with and without the single quotes. It should work one of those ways. I've been using scripts to manage those files for the last month so I am a little rusty.

    In the permissions for Admin, you have * encased in single quotes. Take out the single quotes and try it again.

    posted a message on Two questions about hardware and connection speed.
    Quote from Endure

    16 GB DDR3 RAM > How much would be recommened for a server of 5-10 people?

    How does this compare to dedicated server hosting systems?


    You have 16GB, so give it however much you want, really. At a gig of RAM, you should be able to get WAY more people on there than your connection supports. During heavy chunk loading (what happens when a user logs in or teleports) it will need about 500 kilobits/sec. After all the nearby chunks are loaded, walking around requires about 250 kilobits/sec. Standing still is about 45 kilobits/sec.

    A Core i7 running at 2.8GHz should run the Minecraft server really well, and leave plenty of resources for running the client and whatever other programs you have open. I would guess most hosting companies use similar processors, although we like Xeons because they're designed to run under heavy load 24x7.

    This is completely f**ked. The upgrade is broken and they don't provide a file history to restore it?

    You should make that suggestion to Mojang employees. I would suggest looking up ones other than Notch on Twitter. You aren't the first person to have this idea and it would sure be great if they'd make that an option.

    You will get "Bad Login" if you try to connect to a 1.5 server with a 1.6 client.

    1.6 is super hosed right now, so you might want to try updating it later.
