I'm trying to set up a new server and for some reason I can't get any servers to run anymore, even though I've made several in the past. Making a simple vanilla server with minecraft_server.exe doesn't work because nothing happens when I open it. Running a minecraft_server.jar with a .bat file gives me this:

By default, it uses the Intel chip if I'm running off the battery and the discrete card when it's connected. Installing the official Catalyst drivers disables the switchable graphics though, you need to use HP ones (rarely updated) or modded ones.

There's the rub; I have the official Catalyst drivers, yet I've always had them, and as I said before, the game ran perfectly yesterday.

I scoured the Minecraft forums, and found what might be the source of my problems, but not the solution. Basically Open GL is running from the integrated graphics card you mentioned before, and that's not suitable for Minecraft (my integrated graphics use version 1.1, while I'm told Minecraft needs 2.0 or higher).

My problem becomes how do I get it to detect that I do have a graphics card (the ATI one) with viable Open GL capabilities?

EDIT: In case anyone doesn't understand what I meant, I'm not the greatest technologically capable person out there:

Minecraft will only register the integrated graphics card with outdated Open GL.

Yet I have a graphics card installed (and runs fine for everything else) that has the right Open GL Minecraft requires.

So I do I get it to go back to detecting the right graphics card like it was doing yesterday?

Sorry if I'm being pushy or something; it's just frustrating and I just want to build castles.

Oh well, I sent in a support thing so hopefully I can get this fixed quickly.

Has anyone been getting a message that their Minecraft login is unregistered/pirated while playing? I bought it back when it was $10, and I've been getting this popup in the upper left occasionally, but it doesn't interfere with gameplay so I've pretty much been ignoring it. Might have something to do with mods?

So in the last thread I started a chain world thing and kind of started forgetting to check it and it fell apart (because I am a forgetful dickbag), but I guess I'll take another shot at it now that it's a new thread.

Rules:

quote:

Here are the rules for it:

1. No using any editors or mods that make it easy to gather resources.
2. No mods that will change the map or require other people to have it to play the map.
3. No tearing down structures that other people have made.
4. You can't play on Peaceful, since this is about death.
5. Unless your fire is far enough away that it won't cause damage to other structures, don't make it.
6. Once you die and respawn, immediately save the world and close, then e-mail it back. Your turn is up, no exceptions.
7. You get the map for a week. If you don't send it back in 7 days, the same map you were sent gets sent out to the next person. If you don't die in the seven days, send an e-mail to the same one you signed up with saying so and you'll get another 7 days. However, you have a maximum of two weeks. If you haven't died by then, send it back anyways.

If you want to sign up for it send an e-mail to somethingawfulmcchain@gmail.com (Please include your SA username) and you'll be put on the list.

I don't think mods will cause this to appear, at least not any of the popular ones (if they did, the modders would probably know about it pretty quickly and fix it). I think the message can appear in two circumstances: either your computer was offline or couldn't connect to minecraft.net when logging in, or you are logged in from two locations. If this is happening regularly, probably a good idea to change your password just in case.

I've been having intermittent problems logging in over the past few days. With the rollout of 1.8 and 2.0 it wouldn't suprise me that login problems are stemming from back end upgrades/testing; I suspect they're beefing up their systems in anticipation of a huge surge of users who haven't played in ages. Practically everyone I've talked to says "yeah those endermen look neat; I'll probably try it out again when 1.8 finally arrives".

Okay, here's how I did it (I think):

I couldn't make a regular curse account, because it kept saying the email was already used, so I ended up going to the Curse Support Center, and making a username through that registration option, using the same email but a different username. That seemed to work.

Then I went back to the minecraft forums, but when I tried to link the curse account to the minecraft forum account it said the password was incorrect. So I reset the password via email. This is an even more insane process, you hit forgot password, it sends you an email with a link to reset the password. Then that link brings you to another page, and on this page is a button that says "reset my password". It then sends you ANOTHER email with a new temporary password.

Now there's a link in that email to go back to the minecraft forums and log in, but it won't work if you try to log in with your email and new temporary password. So go back to the minecraft forum front page, click sign in, and then put in your curse account, email address, and new temporary password. That should work.

Only a minecraft sperg could design such an unnecessarily complex process.

The way to work water is to make an outline of the shape of your pond one block deep. Fill it up with water - make a 2x2 hole off to the side somewhere and empty two buckets of water into opposite corners of it. That will give you infinite water to work with.

When you have the pond all filled up, dig out the blocks under the water. That way you can make it as deep as you want without worrying about getting 'holes' in the water.

Yeah, I have my 2x2 source close by to refill, but it's a natural largish hole. Most of it has been fine but it keeps getting weird current patterns in it, even when it IS a source block surrounded by other source blocks.

Doesn't this lead to the water under the surface to be downward flowing, rather than still? I'm sure it doesn't matter aesthetically when viewed from above, but it'd be annoying if you were in it.

Yeah, that's your problem. Make it so your pond is only one block deep (put a layer of dirt in it or something), then the surface will be perfectly even, without any random currents. You can dig out the dirt at that point and you'll have an even, deep pond.

It's astounding
Time is fleeting

I'm currently in the middle of my first really major building project: Seppuku Station, the first level of Shadow Warrior. Why? I'm not entirely sure.

I started by digging a loooong tunnel from my spawn point base (now a travel hub) to the site, laying rails as I went. When I decided I had gone far enough, I began construction with the train platform, which is actually the end of the level. Now I'm working my way backwards, and at this point I'm maybe a third of the way through. So far I've got:

Platform 54. Mine has a bunch of blue everywhere because it's on the blue line of what willmight eventually be a larger rail system. I haven't put in the track on the opposite side yet, largely because I don't yet have anywhere for it to go.


The... waiting room, I guess? The presence of the storage lockers in the original made a great excuse for me to set up a storage/crafting area here. It's also currently serving as my bedroom. There is actually a potted plant in the original as well, but it got blown up by one of those coolies.


The koi pond. That little sign on the far wall actually does say the same thing as the original.


The lobby, still under construction and thus far just barely recognizable.
