    SoundCenter - Music, Sounds and Voice Chat for your Server!

    Version: v0.1

    CustomMusic is back! Now as SoundCenter!

    SoundCenter (formerly CustomMusic) allows you to set music boxes or regions that stream your own music, sound effects or webradio to all players in realtime.
    It also implements a simple voice chat for Minecraft.
    In the future SoundCenter will add a lot of cool audio features to minecraft, such as sound effects on events.

    To give you a very little idea of what it does (video is not up-to-date):

    More info on:

    or on BukkitDev

    • You can set imaginary jukeboxes, cuboid areas or worlds and biomes as music stations
    • Stations can either play your own music or sound effects, or webradio streams
    • You can also play music globally on the whole server
    • You can upload your own music files easily via the SoundCenter client
    • Supported audio formats: mp3, midi, ogg (for webradio only)
    • Everything is easily and intuitively managable with the clients user interface
    • Every feature is configurable and you can limit access with permissions
    Extra Features:
    • Voice chat
      • SoundCenter adds a simple voice chat to your Bukkit server
      • You can speak locally (only players that are not far from you can hear you. Volume depends on their distance)
      • But you can also speak globally (The whole server can hear you)
      • You can disable voice chat on your server if you don't like this feature
    • many more to come
    How does it work?

    Okay so I have SoundCenter installed on my server, what to do now?
    It's easy: Login to your server. If you are not running the client yet, you will see a message with a link to www.sound-center.com. If you follow this link, the SoundCenter client will load and automatically fill in the required information to connect to your server.
    Press connect - now you can add and upload your songs in the "Music" tab, or add biomes or worlds to your stations. If you want to set boxes and areas, you can do this ingame via /sc set <area|box>. That's easier, because the box will be created at your coordinates.
    You can edit all properties of your stations by pressing the "Edit Station" button in the "Stations" tab.

    For detailed instructions on how to install or use the commands visit the HOW TO USE section on BukkitDev.

    I am getting a message saying "Your client version is no longer supported! Please download the latest version." when I start the .bat file.

    It looks like it is running correctly otherwise.

    I am running the late version or the minecraft server, and I downloaded everything in the links in the OP only minutes ago.

    I made all the changes required in the properties on the server and the client as well.

    Any ideas?

    Oddly it seemed to fix itself after running it over and over again, and starting and stopping the server many times, with really changing anything.

    So I've got a really annoying issue that I really can't find the source of. I tried installing this on our server and came up with this error: "Connection Lost Internal except: java.io.IOException: Bad packet id 230"

    Before installing the plugin I did a complete back up of the server. Once I got this issue I decided to forget about it and cleaned out all traces of the plugin. Low and behold, I get the same error.

    After doing a complete restore to the backup, the error remains. I'm at a loss for ideas. Theres nothing left on my computer, or the server. I'm not the only one that gets this error. Any ideas?

    Grr... now it's back on my windows 7 machine.

    "Your client version is no longer supported! Please download the latest version."

    Why is it doing this?

    EDIT: Now it's happening again on the Windows XP machine that it worked on earlier. The same files that were working, with no change, is no longer working and throwing up the above error.

    Hey, I'm back again with more crappy suggestions for you. XD

    On top of the axis-ranges and fade threshold like I mentioned last time, there's one more thing I think would be a helpful addition, if you could manage to program it: Overlap Priority

    Using a command, the owner/admin can assign a priority to their overlapping boxes. If the priority is greater than the other, it will cause the other box to play quieter as it gets louder. An example of this would be having a box encompass an entire town, and then a smaller box with a high priority inside of a shop, so the shop could have its own music. For the higher priority box, the volume it plays at would just be the volume level it would normally have, but for the lower priority box, it would be (myvolume - othervolume). So if the low priority box is playing at 62% volume for the current distance you're at and the high box is at 41%, the low box would be playing at only 21% volume.

    Finally, if the box is set to -1 priority (the default), it will play its thing regardless of the priorities of other boxes. Hope you like this plan, and I have high hopes for the fade threshold at least - that one would be the most useful thing ever XD

    I love the idea of this plugin, but I simply can't get it to work. Whenever I start up "startclient.bat", it tells me "'java' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

    I tried replacing "java" with my java.exe directory, but then it just replaced "java" with "C:\Program Files".

    Any help?

    No such file or directory
    Unable to access jarfile MC_AudioClient.jar
    I am also on a macbook pro

    Delete the "pause" line from the startclient.bat.

    Make sure all ports are forwarded on your server.

    I will make it possible to also use "/custommusic".

    @unh20050 @AKVBeats
    Sorry, i don't know anything about mac.

    Did you fix it? Are you sure this was caused by CustomMusic?

    This usually happens when you use an old audioclient with a new plugin version or vice versa.
    If you youse the two latest versions, make sure the port in the "MCAucioClient.properties" file is the same as the port in the "cm.properties" file.

    Replace it with the full path to your java.exe, not only to the directory.
    For example:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe

    Really nice plugin. I should get to learning java myself at some point, been procrastinating on it. Anyways, if I may suggest, would it possible for overlapping boxes to only play the closer box? I'm trying out some rpg music for my town, but with the open world of MC, it's difficult to have different music in a close area. I think it could be solved by, like I said, adding a setting to give precedence to the closest box in range. Anyways, great plugin, and hope you do well with it.

    @Baconman97 1. are you running mac? 2. is the start bat file in the same folder as your audioclient? 3. make a folder called Audio Client, put the properties, jar, and start bat files in the folder. remember to change the properties!

    6) Does it work on Mac/Linux?

    • For Mac:
    • Yes, it works if you rename the startclient.bat to startclient.command. Then edit it and add your username, along with this on the first line:
      cd <Path to the .jar>
    • So it could look like this:

      cd /Users/JohnDoe/Downloads/CustomMusic_AudioClient java -jar "MC_AudioClient.jar" YourMinecraftName
      (Thanks to @AgentKid and @immac636)
    enjoy the copy/paste from first post. just remember to read the ENTIRE post next time. theres some valueable information but for some reason my ports are forwarded and i cant get audioclient to upload my files

    Have you forwarded all 4 needed ports?

    Yes it is. But everyone who wants to hear the songs needs the audioclient.

    Did you try to restart the audioclient? Do you get any error?

    Ja, bin ich :D

    This usually happens when you or your friend hasn't finished downloading all songs.

    Quick Question: Does everyone have to have AudioClient for this to work?

    Hat es denn schonmal funktioniert? Was sagt /cm status? Hast du auch MP3s hochgeladen (was sagt /cm list)?

    Did you try to add the line from the startclient.bat to the .bat which you use to start minecraft?

    You mean when you log out? You could add "startclient.bat" to the last line of the startclient.bat file and it will start it again, when you log out. Don't forget to remove the "pause" line then.

    Everyone who wants to hear the music.
