MC Server GUI .6.10 - A GUI wrapper for your server (w/ backup functionality): Version: v.6.10 This is a wrapper for your minecraft server that, at it's base, provides a Graphical User Interface. It also has world and server.log backup functionality. I made this with Autohotkey. It is likely only compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7. SUPER IMPORTANT: I just realized I broke Automatic Backups since version .6.2. PLEASE upgrade to .6.7+ as it fixes this issue. News 5/17/11 I finally have a working extremely basic GUI in java right now. I finally got past some of the really major issues I was having with it and am now moving on to being able to set your configuration. Once I have this complete I will release the first version! Provides a GUI for your minecraft server Backup your world(s)/log with a single click Archive backups to zip Edit server.properties from GUI as well as server start options Run scheduled restarts/backups with warning messages Customizable color schemes Memory/CPU/Network monitors Player list with kick/ban actions (more to come) Highly configurable (intended to be anyway) Great compatibility with any version of the minecraft server Press ctrl-s to toggle "say" mode! Download MC Server GUI Note: You should PROBABLY delete your old guiconfig.ini any time you update. Source Code Source Code for multi-platform Java version (not released yet) 1. Unzip mcservergui.exe and 7za.exe (This file is for archiving ability) into your Minecraft Server directory 2. Run mcservergui.exe. It will attempt to detect the jar file for your server. If it cannot find it, set it manually under Server Config. That's it! (v.6.0) Ability to give players items by right clicking name in player list (high priority) Compatibility with many other plugins (mcMMO or iConomy for instance) (low priority) Server file manipulation (like installing/configuring plugins) (low priority) More Error Checking (medium priority) Resizeable GUI (medium priority) Plugin Manager (high priority) A ton of other crap. Full todo list Version .6.10 Removed Xms memory field and replaced with Xincgc checkbox. You can still use Xms if you'd like, you just have to add it in the extra arguments box. Version .6.9 Alt-Tab works more reliably while looking at the GUI Added ctrl-s hotkey for "say" mode Made slight modification to the way the console output scrolls Version .6.8 Rewrote how the GUI processes server.log, hopefuly making it more reliable and use less resources Added error checking to this process so that if there's any issues reading it, it will tell you Version .6.7 - HOTFIX Automatic backups now work again! Version .6.6 Added some very specific debug mode values to fight this zero-console output issue Added option to enable/disable minimize to tray Added more checks for the GUI closing (other than the X button) so that it can shut down the server properly Removed error message about GetGUIThreadInfo() Made one tiny change to the startup process that may increase reliability Version .6.5 Added a new text box to show the phases of the start up process (instead of displaying in the console output), allowing for: Modified the startup process. It will now start displaying console output much sooner Fixed issue where auto-restarts made the GUI think Java was crashing Replaced Warn Restart button with Warn Stop button as this would seem to be more useful Renamed Immediate Restart button to just Restart Added Reload button to send the reload command for you Made Minimize to Tray much more reliable Version .6.4 - HOTFIX Fix for restart times not updating correctly while the server is running Version .6.3 Player list should no longer display duplicate players Fixed bug where Next Restart time would reset to the next restart time shortly after saying it was commencing the first one Possibly fixed a bug that would cause restarts (and therefore backups) to be skipped Added Debug Mode Fixed issue where console would remain blank on server start Now minimizes to the system tray (Doesn't seem to work right) System tray icon's tooltip shows server status and if UP, online player count Possibly fixed bug where server up time would stop displaying Fixed issue where sometimes the GUI would erroneously think that there was a Java error upon starting the server Removed Update Rate setting as it is no longer used The console output should resume scrolling normally when you're not focused on it (such as selecting text within it) Should now detect players being kicked by alternate means Full Change Log Slight delay (2-seconds?) before restarts commence Players with nick names will be dropped from the list ocassionally If you have any issues please read the following frequently asked questions section! Q: There is an error starting Java when I start the server. A: First, instead of using java.exe on the GUI Config page, browse for this file on your computer. Failing that, if you're trying to set the memory above 1024M(1G) you may need to select a 64 bit java.exe Q: What do the options do on the Server Config tab do? A: Take a look at this. Love my GUI?
