This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

If you wish to disable this feature (/me cries), you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/

    @falo0102: Go

    There is no official CraftBukkit for 1.8. So don't expect this plugin to come around any time soon in 1.8.

    Can you add a Arena System instead of a map System?

    Uploaded Version 1.7.2 to fix the startup error in 1.7.1.

    A temporary solution until the file has been approved can be found here: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/dwarves-vs-zombies/tickets/61-dvz-can-not-find-monster-yml/

    @LiLChris06 I just tested it with the latest spigot+protocollib+libsdisguises builds. (And my latest code from github) and it starts without any errors for me. (Maybe you have disble_disguisecraft_check set to true? Which breaks getting the correct Disguiseplugin in Version 1.7.1. The config option get removed in one of the latest commits)

    The recent bukkit drama(s) have put me off working on DvZ or SpellItems. So I will take a break from them until all of this is resolved. Even if bukkit really dies I'm planing on making DvZ work with whatever comes to replace it.

    I don't have much time right now, but I will try to answer as much questions that appeared during the last weeks I was gone tomorrow. I will also maybe even release a small bugfix update, but then I will take a break until all this bukkit drama has come to a conclusion.

Which Disguise Plugin would you want DvZ to use?
