    i use spigot and all working fine up to 1.7.9.. with 1.7.10 some player lost inventrory (maybe cause of multinv?) and some games get frozen. and player are stuck on queue.

    @Sojiro787: Go

    I test it out in the latest spigot 1.7.9 version, which was build number #1543 with the ctf plugin and it works for battlearena {/which is the version I use/} The only thing that leave me concerned is that it took a anormal amount of time when using the /ctf join. command. That could be a spigot related plugin or memory usage so maybe your server just can't run the games with a lot of people. (not with the games plugin, the related games that need this plugin) I just tried the ctf game, If you have problems with other type games let me know.

    The config and the way is read is essential, maybe your server crashes due to your config.

    Other plugins may interfere with this one, there should be a log though, but one never knows

    I don't use spigot so just wait for an response.

    @Sojiro787: Go

    there're some spigot issues, the plugin run smooth in bukkit but in spigot it doesn't, i'm sorry, maybe the autor will create a new version for all tipes of servers. I'll try it today and will see if it can be fix.

    There is really not much info to give lol.

    I use 1.7.9 (the latest 1.7.9 spigot version)

    I created a custom game based on Skirmish.

    Whenever i try to join my custom game, the server will time out and kick everyone. After the first time out, you will be able to join the game, but, it wont function properly. A lot of players can't get out of the events, they crash constantly when the event is about to start, etc.

    This is a nice plugin, but it just has a lot of bugs, at least on my server.

    There are really no errors in my console, and i have gone over the config a few times. A few server owners that i know have opt out from using this plugin due to the same reasons.

    I haven't tested on 1.7.8 though.

    @Wolfie_Waffle: Go

    I actually don't know that, just guess that you should have teams of 2+ people

    @TehRenderr: Go

    preReqs: options: [noInventory]

    should do the trick :3

    @rwsender: Go

    you can't actually limit the max amount of inventories saved from the games you just limit the n* per player, so maybe high values don't do the trick. If that is not the problem, I believe I'm wrong, just go and post a ticket as bug.

    @Sojiro787: Go

    you actually don't give enough info. :C but if you're using a 1.7.10 version of minecraft that could be the issue

    @Xitwid: Go

    You're not thinking with portals. The mods do not register the kills so the plugin doesn't work with many of them, but you have to think. If you can't score kills, the you score the deaths! give a n* of lives and go on!

    Killing others with the guns in Flan mod, the score can't be increased, how to fix it?

  • Avatar of Sojiro787 Sojiro787 Jul 28, 2014 at 00:31 UTC - 0 likes

    Custom games are completely broken.

    You cannot create a GameConfig.yml and use it, it will crash the server (at least with a server of 80-120 people).

    Pre-loaded games like, FFA, Skirmish, etc, work perfectly.

    If you have a chance to fix the custom games, that would be awesome.

    Btw, no errors in console when trying to play custom game, the moment you do /CustomGame Join, you time out and everyone crashes.

    Using this alongside Spleef arena, sometimes it does not save/take away a players inventory, and they loose their items, I set the amount of inventories saved to 15, should this be higher(this happens when theirs like 3 people in the game)

  • Avatar of TehRenderr TehRenderr Jul 23, 2014 at 21:46 UTC - 0 likes


    How would I make it so they need a empty inventory to do /arena join.
