    I know, I'm new, but I've found the up-most priority for moderators and other individuals who point in the direction of the unflappable Chunkster often don't explain how to use the jar program... At all.

    I'm in the same boat as most others when it comes to being fresh off the boat and none to bright with all of this witchcraft and server jargon. I would love to learn how to use this savior, because currently that dreaded piece of code has sullied itself nice and cozy with my own server:

    Which goes on forever and ever until they move away from that damn chunk.

    So, please, if any moderator or honest to goodness coder could explain how to use this wonderful deity of a program to us humble newbies, please grace us with your good fortune so we too may thrive.

    Currently using Windows 7 64bit. I've tried running the code as is:

    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -jar Chunkster.jar
    Only problem is that it gives me...

    That's right ladies and gentlemen, nothing, and when I hit continue it's bye bye black screen. Clearly there's something off! And before you claim such things as, "WELL YOU DIDN'T PUT IT IN THE WORLD FOLDER, HURP." I assure you my good man, these are unfounded atrocities.

    So, once again, thank you for your patience and time and if you can find it in your heart to write out the code, give details of how to use it, I would be most appreciative.

    EDIT: I just realized I'm running a 32bit Java on a 64bit machine, this -could- exude some of my current problems that I haven't even thought of, but alas, it's late and I'm tired, sorry about that for whomever read it thoroughly enough to catch it and thought that was the issue.... But I still think, despite my own faults, that a guide for using this program would be ridiculously beneficial to the community since it's often the answer to most problems.

    usage: java -jar Chunkster.jar <world directory>

    See the <world directory> part? you are supposed to put something there..

    so if you put chunkster in your main mc folder (same folder as world, but not IN world)
    you would use
    java -jar chunkster.jar world

    Frusturation is surely abound my fine friend. Thank you for the quick uptake on the issue that I didn't exactly see myself, but... Here's what comes into play when I write in this piece of code:

    java -jar Chunkster.jar world
    Followed by this prompt:

    I can already see the issue with the pause command, which if I don't put in will simply flash the screen and do a whole lot of nothing, but at least I have a better idea of this whole "NOT A DIRECTORY" nonsense.

    And it may well not be, I'm just not very experienced with this stuff.

    Edit: I did put in the code as above with the addendum of world after the string of code, but the answer I aquire when running the .bat is...

    So, clearly, I'm not sure of what the deal with directory is.

    Got this from the chunkster thread (worked for me...)

    Move Chunkster.jar into the same directory as your world folder
    Then go into command prompt, type cd /path/of/yourworldfile/
    java -jar Chunkster.jar <world directory>
    where <world directory> is the name of your world folder, example

    cd /Desktop/Server/
    java -jar Chunkster.jar WorldFolder

    I tried many different variations of that command prompt, but that code just won't seem to give me anything but grief. Did it work for you since you're on Linux?

    The cd line already seems to lead directly to the World Folder considering I put the Chunkster.jar and .bat note into the /world folder.

    Thank you for the advice though, it's appreciated.

    im on windows 7 x64

    dont put chunkster in the /world folder, put it in the same folder as craftbukkit.jar

    also, i didn't use a .bat, i ran it through the command prompt

    Thank you very much, this was the final solution, I kept wondering what I was doing wrong. Thanks Jefe for pointing out the issue.

    batch files in 64 bit windows tend to get a bit stupid and do things like launch from system32

    Same problem, i put in the java -jar Chunkster.jar world and it just tells me the chunkster info.

    C:\Users\Connie\Desktop\minecraftserver1>java -jar Chunkster.jar
    chunkster: region pointer repair utility v0.1
    usage: java -jar Chunkster.jar <world directory>

    C:\Users\Connie\Desktop\minecraftserver1>java -jar Chunkster.jar world
    chunkster: region pointer repair utility v0.1
    usage: java -jar Chunkster.jar <world directory>

    i typed in the exact code as you (and my file name is server and also on my desktop and made worldfolder the name of the world folder) but it still refuses to works and says unable to acces jar file chunkster.jar.
    THEN i shift clicked the server file and put
    java -jar Chunkster.jar world and it said Chunkster:region pointer repair utility v0.1
    usage: java -jar Chunkster.jar <world directory>
