    IS THIS PLUGIN DEAD? I have a question. How do I make an arena have a wait room?

    if anyone is interested, i have developed some extra BattleArena game modes. Their Call of Duty names are Sabotage & Search N Destroy. (it's also called SND in Counterstrike).

    That's the source code on github. The reason why the github repository is named Demolition is because that's the name of the game mode from SOCOM US Navy Seals.

    if you goto the DBO page, you can vote on which game mode I should work on next, or leave a comment.

    @Zach443: Go

    VirtualPlayers was updated a long time ago at

    It's a fork of Alkarin's repository (i hope he's okay in real life !!!)

    That is v1.5.10 which adds backwards compatibility for Minecraft 1.2.5 thru 1.7.10.

    Backwards compatibility is a nice luxury if you need to test against multiple versions of minecraft, then you don't have to constantly replace the VirtualPlayers.jar before starting up the test server.

    The next version of VirtualPlayers will feature a PIE command, which will force the VirtualPlayer to trigger a PlayerPickupEvent for any items on the ground at its location.

    Update 2

    I have started developing an update for BattleArena. I am not entirely sure how these updates will be distributed at this time, but please know updates are coming. I will soon be working on ArenaSpleef and ArenaCTF as well.

    For anyone interested @Europia79 is currently developing updates for VirtualPlayers. There are no ETA's for updates to any of these plugins, but again, please be aware that there are still people working on them**

    For some reason the new wiki won't load for me. Does everyone have this issue? Of not would you have any idea why this is happening?

    @alkarinv has been unreachable for over 6 weeks now. He has not logged into IRC, BukkitDev, nor responded to emails. As of right now @lDucks has declared BattlePlugins as dead. No future updates are being planned. This is very unfortunate, however there is still a chance for BP. Development may resume depending on how newer communities come along, and how much of BA needs to be recoded.

    @AGMatthew: Go

    Sounds like a FFA you are referring to, ./ffa create <arena name> (for more info see the wiki) but you might wanna use the /ffa setarenaoption <arenaname> OnSpawn Giveclass <class to give>
