  1. Use the development builds, available at for the best expierience! They're stable. They're only marked as development because they're not suited for bukkitdev.

    The bukkit GUI project - shortened BukkitGUI - is intended to provide server owners
    with a easy to use, powerful GUI. Except from clearly displaying server information,
    it also adds some powerful functions, like a task planner, error logger and solver, plugin manager, .
    At this moment it does only use 30MB of your RAM, and 0% CPU when your server is running.
    *CPU usage may raise when there is a lot of output, like on startup (with many plugins or) reload.

    • Bukkit Auto-updater
    • Colored output, colors definable in settings
    • advanced list with online players, richt click for quick commands
    • Advanced options to launch bukkit
    • Download or update bukkit from within the GUI
    • Highly precise memory measurement
    • Low on resources, performance can be adjusted in settings
      (+- 30MB RAM - 0% CPU when server is normal running)
    • Error logging, searching for the cause, and if possible, solving of errors
    • Tray icon (with support to minimize to tray) ,balloon tips and sounds.
    • Rarely/Never breaks on Minecraft/bukkit update
    • Backups (multiple backup defenitions possible)
    • Install, update, manage plugins from within the GUI
    • Mass update plugins
    • Light mode: only the essential features, reduces cpu usage
    See the Quick install Guide about how to set it up. Click here to view it.

    Remote Server Support
    The GUI can also show output and send commands to remote servers.
    The recommended way to use a remote server is by using JSONAPI.
    In order for this to work, the JSONAPI plugin should be installed on your server.

    The following minecraft servers are supported:
    • Bukkit build 800 and higher (lower isn't tested)
    • Vanilla
    • Tekkit

    Please include the plugin version in the title. (Before the description)
  3. 1)it dont want to change java path,that brings problem №2
    2)crash,because can't find java
  4. @tolerance: corrected the title
    Strange, i can change both java paths.
    Make sure you select the java base path, e.g. C:/Program Files/Java
    I pushed a version to github which catches the error, so it doesn't crash
    Which OS are you using? You could also try running it as admin.
  5. Good job
  6. XP,doubt that XP need to run as admin,if im admin in the first place.
    omg,im not that stupid.
  7. I uploaded a new version to github, i foud a possible reason why this could happen. please download it and try if it works. If not:
    Can you explain precise whats going wrong?
    Does the browse dialog pop-up? Can you adjust the text(by selecting it and replacing, so without the browse popup)
    Which java version do you have?

  9. Since you posted enough information, I was able to find the exact problem:
    You didn't speciefied the correct java path or the correct bukkit location.
    I see you're using I recommend downloading the development build from github (v0.9.5.3)
    It has some bugfixes, i think i fixed this problem in (I'll move it soon to recommended build)
    so can you try (see development build from github in the start post)

    v0.9.5.3 is now recommended build.
    This version includes some important bugfixes (it solve the problems above), update recommended.

    Yes, it helped!
  11. now it works,but minecraft launcher don't work,server memory/cpu usage not showing,well,it doenst show anything at all,plus i can't connect to the server,always "lost connection"
  12. The latest minecraft launcher should work. (from Make sure you allocate enough memory. Can you explain what precisely is going wring?
    v0.9.5.4 is released and recommended now, it fixes the performance counter not showing.
    It's normal that the CPU measurment isn't working at this moment, this code is harder to write.
    About the lost connection: that doesn't seems like it's the GUI, but bukkit. You could try setting white list off, online mode off, and see if it helps. Note that all server files will be generated in the same folder as bukkitGUI. So if it's in another folder, these files will be regenerated.
    EDIT: I just tested, the lost connection has nothing to do with the GUI. Don't forget BukkitGUI has to be in the same folder as the jar file, OR you should edit the new made config files in the folder where your BukkitGUI is placed.
  13. why then i can connect if i start server from bat,but with GUI cant?
    everything is as it should be.
    you mean wrong ?well...quite obviously,it just not starting

    Attached Files:

    • zzz.png
      File size:
      99.8 KB
  14. It should work indeed.
    Can you place the GUI in an emty map, and use the automatic download function to create a new server?
    Try if that works. This is strange, I'm going to investigate that immediatly. Can you get the reason for disonnect? (see the output from bukkit)
    I pushed a version to github with debug options. Enable debug under "options", and attach the debug.txt file.
    The minecraft launcher works but it's kinda buggy. I suggest not changing the RAM, unless you're using 64 bit java. Around 1024MB ram should work.

    Seems like running this without a custom command line is eating up a lot of RAM

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    For example:
        < jitDebugging="true" />
    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

    now i can connect...maybe it was some rare glitch
  18. I'm happy to hear it works :) . I'll optimize the debug possibilities (debug logging caused that error, it was added in about 2 minutes to help you)
    I'm currentrly working on the complete rewrite of the code which is responsible for shutting down the server and the GUI. This rewrite will remove the latest bugs. (80% done :))
    I have to say thanks already for not dropping it in your recycle bin, but helping me to debug it;)

    v0.9.6.0 is recommended version, see changelog for details
  19. now when trying to enable debugging
    Something has gone worng when enabling debug. Try running the application as administrator.
  20. yeah. that message replaced the error. But if everything works, you don't have to run debug ;)
    v0.9.6.1 on github might fix that.
    (I didn't focus on the debug option for v0.9.6.0)
  21. minecraft launcher does not work,that why i wanted to use debug
  22. Offline


    I would prefer a option to autostart the Bukkit server on Programm startup:)
  23. Offline


    The problem is that on, nothing happens when I start the server ... 1.JPG
  24. Can you add an option where the background turns black? The white background hurts my eyes >.>
  25. I'm going to investigate it, but the fact is java is hard to get. Too much memory, too less, errors in loading...
    default values are working on my computer. Do you get a cmd popup which closes very quick?
    whats the location of your minecraft.jar?
    do you have v0.9.6.1? (from github, bugfix in debug option)
    Nice idea! Going to program it right away, isn't much work.
    what is your:bukkit version and your BukkitGUI version? it's working fine on my server. (v0.9.6.0 / v0.9.6.1)
    I see exactly what is going wrong, but can't get why it is going wrong. I guess you're using an outdated version (I'm fixing much bugs). Maybe post your CPU also. (The missing data is handled by another thread, so I suppose that thread can't run (???) or shut down immediatly after activation (bug that is fixed in v0.9.6.0))
    Ok, isn't much work, maybe you get it already this evening (same for hextler)

    New release: v0.9.6.2
    Added autostart and custom background color.
    If you use another background color: Black letters will be replaced by the "Others" color.
    @Technicus: Is this enough, or do you want an option to change the whole application background color?

    I just moved its entire server to a new computer. Just copy the folder server, not what is not changing. And Bukkit GUI refuses to run the server, Bukkit GUI session length after the start and close it as not impossible, and have to kill the processBukkit GUI.

    P.S. I do not know very well English. Sorry if that something is wrong
  28. @Hextler
    those colors are something I should add to the server.
    I just have to find a way to efficiently remove the color codes and replace them by a color.
    ( I guess I'm going to remove the codes first, adding the colors later)
    Feel free to send me the codes for each color.
    And as far as I know, you don't have to place a slash before a command to the server.

    Since all problems around shutdown should be solved. I knew there were problems with shutdowns in 0.9.5.x, but these are now solved(It has a minimize to tray option, if this is enabled bukkit and the GUI will keep working in the background. Minimize to tray can be enabled/disabled in the settings tab, upper left corner) . Make sure your Java path is correct, your java settings are correct (disable JRE7 and Java 64 bit if you don't have them, standard:disabled),your bukkit path is correct. Try debug mode (it doesn't work perfect, but it should be able to create a small log "debug.txt"). You can find debug mode you can enable debug in the right-bottom corner of the settings tab. Please also say which version of BukkitGUI you're running.

    i mean you can't type in "dynmap fullrender" for example, the plugin dynmap doesn't receive the command...
  30. Thats very strange.
    I can by example reload my permissions (the plugin) file using the GUI.
    Simplegod works also (just tried these 2 after reading your post)
    Can you try another plugin?
