    Hi Folks

    I'm new to bukkit server, been running vanilla server for awhile now. When I run my BAT file there is no GUI. I jsut have the cmd window open and I can't enter commands or anything from it.

    Is there something that I am missing?

    Here is my BAT file....

    I know a bit about batch file programming. The reason for the end is so that if I am not actively watching my server, it will auto-restart. Like say there's a reason for one of my OPs to restart the server, they issue the STOP command, my BAT file then relaunches the server. Of course, there is a counter so I can see just how many times the server had been restarted.

    Any suggestions? I looked at BukkitGUI but don't see an option to auto-restart.

    I can confirm that the server is running, I just can't see any GUI for it.

    download bukkit gui from here

    download craftbukkit from here

    follow this 3 steps

    but if u really need/want to stay with bat files

    here are 4 different bat files

    1st you rename your craftbukkit.1.1.1.jar file to craftbukkit.jar

    than you put all of them in your bukkit folder and 1 of them will work for sure

    Guess you don't read and just paste the same info all over the place (have seen this in many threads).

    I mentioned I did use BukkitGUI, I wouldn't even mind using it, but it doesn't auto-restart the server if an OP issues the STOP command. At least from my testing there wasn't.

    I want them to use the /stop command. I'm not always available to restart the server as I do work and like to hang out with friends in this strange world called Real Life. (Sorry was trying to be funny)

    After they issue the/ stop command, I'd like the server to automatically restart. There have been times when redstone would stop working and a server restarted always got it to work again. (Note, this example was with vanilla server)

    Oh My, I severely messed up...

    There was one very very minor difference that I didn't catch until just now.

    When running the vanilla server, I used javaw.exe, but to run bukkit I need to use java.exe. Javaw doesn't open the console where as java does. This solves my problem and can go back to using my BAT file.

    I have another question, but will be a new post, as this thread has been solved.

    How do I mark this thread as solved?

    Thanks, found it.

    I won't need that plug in, the way I write my BAT file will automatically restart the server if it shuts down. Below is my BAT file, now that I figured out why the console wouldn't load.

    When the server shuts down, it'll post a question as to whether or not the user wants to restart, and if receives no input for 5 seconds (my OPs won't see it, so can't answer it) it will default to Y and the server will restart. Simple!

    Also, this doesn't work for all versions of Windows. I use Windows 7 and it works.
