Installation

Short version

  1. Download both PlayerMarkers.jar and PlayerMarkers_WebFiles.zip
  2. Drop the PlayerMarkers.jar file in the plugins directory
  3. Unzip the contents of the PlayerMarkers_WebFiles.zip file to your overviewer web_assets directory (it should create a playermarkers directory)
  4. Edit the index.html in the overviewer web_assets directory and include the line
    <script type="text/javascript" src="playermarkers/playermarkers.js"></script>
    
  5. Either start the server to create the config file, or create one yourself (in plugins/PlayerMarkers/config.yml)
  6. If your world names in bukkit differ from the names in the overviewer configuration see World Name Mapping to setup the mapping.
  7. If you want to enable the cache for the player skins, make sure your web-server has write permissions for the playermarkers directory of the generated map
