    It seems to be that the plugin is conflicting with SimplePluginManager, I will set up a test server and try to locate the issue. I will also be updating the plugin to the latest Bukkit build after I have carried out the tests. I will try to get back to you before the end of the day.

    • Correction I will not be updating to Bukkit 1.7.5 until there is a Beta build. I will still try to replicate your problem and solve it when I can.

    Sorry to bother again, but I encountered an error that pops up in the console whenever i take damage (experienced with, but may not be limited to fire tick, fire, and fall damage)

    It doesnt appear to effect anything, other than spamming the console, but i could be wrong.

    I will add Sound options to the Config tonight, I think it will take around two days to be approved. Thanks for the feedback.

    Also thanks for noting me about the console launch message, sorry I just never edit the plugin details stuff.

    Hi, I noticed that when the server starts up, it says "[rSponge] Loading rSponge v1.2.0 Dev Build" even though I made sure I downloaded v.1.3.0 and the configs wont use the new config options (though the actual configs in the jar shows it)

    Its a great plugin and it gives the sponge some actual usage! I also wondered if you could add in the config the option to change the sound effect to a different sound or to disable the sound permanently. Thanks for your time and effort~

    Config is next up on the todo list!

    Looks nice, simple but nice, but I have to agree that there should be a config so you can change the velocity of how far you are moved; and maybe make it so where the player looks is where he gets moved rather than in a certain height and direction?

    Enlisted in USAF and USMC, do things such as riding, shooting, and hunting. This is my brand new server below, I've spent alot of time and effort making it, my staff have as well. Please go and try it out at PLAY.PULSEPVP.NET!
