    Minecraft RemoteToolkit
    -Less downtime, more fun for your players, more power to you!

    Are you a Minecraft server administrator? Do you value up-time and stability? Do you fancy the ability to remotely control your server, both in-game and out of game, in a myriad of useful ways from a plethora of different devices?
    If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Minecraft RemoteToolkit is for you!

    What the Minecraft RemoteToolkit Plugin and Wrapper do for you:
    • Provides almost perfect server uptime with no need for action from an owner/administrator!
    • Have your server save and restart at any time period with configurable restart warnings!
    • The Toolkit guarantees a restart within the set restart period, even if your server crashes, becomes unresponsive, or encounters a "SEVERE" exception!
    • Remotely control every function of the Toolkit, even from your smart phone!
    • Full remote console access via telnet with support for multiple terminal types!
    • Telnet daemon conforms to current Telnet related RFCs!
    • Customizable alert messages!
    • Fully extendable though 3rd party modules!
    • Full feature set works with most craftbukkit builds!
    • Most features work with any Minecraft server variation, even vanilla!
    • Telnet can be disabled!

    Blackberry please? :D

    Well, it's Java so it shouldn't be hard. My priority at the moment is pushing out the backup component, followed by the Android application. I will probably be able to port most of the network components of the Android app to a Blackberry app somewhat easily, provided the Android Java SDK is similar enough to the J2ME SDK.

    For now, could you make do with the web panel? ;)

    Sure thing, thanks for the reply

    Too bad. My server crashes often because of [SEVERE] Unexpected exception errors.
    Is there any possibility, that your plugin restart the server after this?

    Maybe you could include some functions in the launcher to read console lines that are given out of the minecraft server and always checks if there is this string.

    I can get it all to work but only by entering it all manually when I try to use the .sh file I get this:
    /Users/*/Desktop/Bukkit/ ; exit;
    Unable to access jarfile Minecraft_RKit.jar
    [Process completed]
    Any ideas? I should have given both files execute permissions as well unless I did something wrong.

    Try running the .sh from within the server directory. I can see what the problem is, i'll update the script for the next release.

    My wrapper already reads console lines. It's actually required to have the save complete message display.
    I will build in optional support for this in the next version.

    I need a changelog with date, I think I'm using your first Version.... but works great ;)

    Sorry, but is it just me or is your Server down?
    Seems that is not responding...

    Oh dear, that does not look good. I've put the latest release on my own personal server for now.

    Was trying to get this to work, dont know much about this sorta stuff, but in install how the guide said to and when to run the .bat file it pops up then closes right away. The only things I edit was the user:pass in the files. everything else i set up to your guide
  12. Offline


    Add the word pause to the end of the .bat file, then tell me what's printed in the console.

    Says java aint valid haha wtf.

    I use this to boot up bukkit usualy
    IF /I "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE:~-2%"=="64" "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar "%~dp0craftbukkit.jar"
    IF /I "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE:~-2%"=="86" java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar "%~dp0craftbukkit.jar"

    ok, edit the .bat file and replace 'java' with "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe"

    Ok now i get could not open cause of object heap

    over n over.
  16. Offline


    Can I see the full error as it appears in the console?
    Also, how much ram are you allocating to the server in, and how much ram do you have installed in your machine?
  17. Offline


    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    Could not reserve enough space for object heap

    have it set up for 1024m
  18. Offline


    You forgot to mention how much ram you have installed :p

    Well there's the problem. You cannot allocate all of your memory to the server since your operating system and whatever else is currently running will have their own memory overheads. There obviously won't be 1024M left to allocate! :p

    thats weird then how does the server boot up without the remote? lol

    I am having the same problem as Toob where when the server starts up it halts at the message:
    INFO: Listening to Port 25,561 with a connectivity queue size of 5.
    And continues when you hit "Enter"

    Also, when the server is restarted by the plugin, it just says "Restarting..." until Enter is pressed.

    During this time, you can connect with telnet, and it will output the status messages for that to the console. An Enter in the telnet window will also cause the server to continue starting.

    The same thing happens with the telnet server turned off, except the message it stops at is "Starting UDP listen server on port 25561".

    Using craftbukkit 300, and have Java 1.6.0_23-b05, XP 32-bit SP3.

    Also, it would be nice if your telnet window showed the content of the console, so you could see the servers responses to your commands.

    First, great plugin, I cannot live without it :)

    I have the same feature request too as suggested earlier.
    It would be really useful to catch "[SEVERE] Unexpected exception" and to issue an immediate restart. If stop command does not do anything, it kills the java process and restart process.

    Thx alot!

    anyone have a copy of the backup preview... the link is down?
  25. Offline


    I know you run the wrapper with this:
    java -Xmx30M -Xms30M -XX:MaxPermSize=40M -jar Minecraft_RKit.jar user:pass
    Is the memory allocation that high necessary? Can we get away with 20-20-30? How about less? I'm on a VPS with 2GB RAM. I put 1024M to the minecraft server, 30M to the wrapper, a few more to some websites and postfix mail server.. I'm running with 0 Free.

    I see an upgrade in my future but, any suggestions.. already shut down my mumble server.

    If you do indeed have exactly 1024MB of memory installed and are allocating that much to the server, then it won't work. You are either mistaking about how much ram you have allocated to craftbukkit, or how much ram you have installed.

    It's a problem with Windows XP. It's a terrible, terrible operating system from a development perspective regarding cli based applications. There is a simple workaround that i'm implementing, and it will hopefully be in the next update.
    As for your telnet suggestion, I am not aware of what you mean. It should be forwarding everything from the console to telnet and vice versa. It's probably another problem with Windows XP, and so I may not be able to fix it. >.>

    I'm busy implementing that already! It will be in the next version.

    Ah, I forgot to update that link. Hang on, it'll be working again shortly.

    I was generous with how much was allocated to the wrapper. It should be able to make do with about 20M, maybe less.

    Thanks for fixing the link...
    Wondering if I'm using a ramdisk and I use the backup plugin. Where will the backups be saved? Can I specify location? I don't have any more space on the ramdisk for a backup.

    .commands now work in windows via the wrapper! Thanks.
  29. Offline


    As of now, the backups need to be stored in the world folder. I will probably add a way of changing that in either the final release, or the next preview.

    Is there a way I can set it so that my server restarts every day at certain time (for example 6 AM) instead of just setting a 24h interval?
  31. Offline



    Release 10 Alpha 6
    -Added the option to have the server restart on a "SEVERE" exception. By default this is disabled and needs to be enabled in
    -Reimplemented the ability for the wrapper to force the server to restart after a grace period set forth by forced-restart-delay

    Still to come
    -A decent attempt at getting this to work properly on Windows XP *sigh*
    -Scheduled restarts on a set time of day
    -Map backups integrated into wrapper
    -A wiki page for this
