As there are some problems that appear very often and I don't want you to create a forum thread every time the most important are listed here.
Q: How do I setup WorldGuard Custom Flags?
A: To setup the plugin simply download the zip file from dev.bukkit.org and copy WGCustomFlags.jar into the plugins folder of your Bukkit server. If you use a database to store your WorldGuard regions you have two options:
- Import the included worldflags.sql file into your database as described here.
- Setup WGCustomFlags to use a flat file to store its information as described here. When you did so you only have to start your server and the plugin should work.
Q: When I start my server I get an error/exception, what should I do?
A: First you should read the error/exception. Sometimes it could help you to solve your problem. If it does not: don't panic and read the other questions of this F.A.Q. .
Q: I got an "UnknownDependencyException". What does this mean?
A: First: Thanks for reading the exception, there are so many people that don't even do this. If you have an exception that looks somehow like this
21:20:38 [SEVERE] Could not load 'plugins/WGFlyFlag.jar' in folder 'plugins' org.bukkit.plugin.UnknownDependencyException: WGCustomFlags at org.bukkit.plugin.SimplePluginManager.loadPlugins(SimplePluginManager.java:196) at
WGCustomFlags did not load properly. If you did not download WGCustomFlags yet this is the perfect moment. If you did so check whether there were any exceptions when it was loaded.
Q: I got an other exception. What now?
A: If there is something that says "NullPointerException" or anything else you may take a look at the forum. Don't report your problems at the comments section, please. First try to find out if anyone else had that problem before. You can use the search function for this purpose (if you click open the forum there is a "Search Forum..." box). If you could not find your problem in the forum create your own forum post. Before doing so read this, please.
Q: Your plugin is not for the current Bukkit release, when will you update it?
A: Just because it says "R: WG Custom Flags _._._ for CB _._._-R_._" the plugin will not be incompatible to any newer version. Please do not spam "Update!" or something like that into the comments. First check whether it works with your Bukkit version and then try to solve your problem like it is described here.
Q: How do I contact you?
A: If you have a problem with a WGCustomFlags plugin or a suggestion for a new one use the forum, please. If not you can send me a PM on dev.bukkit.org, send me an email to [email protected].
