Getting "Outdated server" message? Read this.
Undefined

So every time a new version of Minecraft is released there is this painful transition period during which a lot of people are unable to join because they have updated their clients to the newest version, but the server has not updated. Sometimes it takes quite a while for the server to update, and that's because we are using a modified version of the server (CraftBukkit) which allows us to use plugins and other awesome stuff, but on the other hand is not updated by Mojang.

This means, that to continue playing on our server you will need to downgrade your minecraft.jar. The instructions below are for Windows:

  • Go to the front page and in the right sidebar look for server status. Note the version that the server you want to play on is running.
  • Download the minecraft.jar corresponding to the version you determined (download links below).
  • Rename the downloaded file into something like minecraft_181.jar (substitute the numbers with actual version)
  • Press Start -> Run, and in the window that pops up type %appdata%\.minecraft\bin (mind the dot before "minecraft"). Press OK.
  • A window should come up displaying the contents of your Minecraft binaries folder. Place the downloaded JAR file into this folder.
  • Download the DigiEx.net Minecraft launcher here: http://digiex.net/minecraft/mcvtool/ (place it anywhere you like).
  • Double click mclauncher.exe and in the drop-down select the JAR you previously downloaded (e.g. minecraft_181.jar)
  • Enter your username and password and you're good to go.

1.5?

When will one of the servers be updated to 1.5? I heard that CraftBukkit for 1.5 is out...

Craftbukkit 1.6.2 has been released for quite a while...

The beta build works FINE. I have the beta build on my own server, and haven't seen any problems.
