    still the problem:
    When a player is offline and u try to edit their inv - it firstly seems to be fine.
    But when the player logs on, he often dont see the editing, he still sees the "old" inventory he had before editing - but when the admin looks at the inventory -> he see the change

    i gave some offline players some items. When they loged in they didnt saw them in their inventory. When i looked at their inventory at the same time, i saw the items.
    i took them of and relay them in their inventory while they was online.
    then they saw it too :3

    There is a lot of latency (serverwide) when opening up the inventory of an offline player. Any ideas on a fix?

    It's been long overdue, but here is the official build. I haven't really had time to test it, been a super busy month with work/school.

    Definitely doesn't work on 1.8.3

    @CloudeLecaw: Go

    This build has a lot of bugs and really should not be used, although I appreciate you trying to help get a working build. Inventories get messed up, offline player inventory editing doesn't work at all, etc.

    An updated build (should work flawlessly, 1.8.3 only, untested yet):

    seems to work on spigot 1.8.3 =)
    Thx for the fast reaction :)
