*Invalid version* bug has been squashed!

CraftBukkit updated and server is up and running. Trying to log in without Hamachi, so please refer to the old (new) log in instructions -------------------------------------------------------->


Let me know of any log in issues and I'll see about fixing them!


Saturday, Dec 10, 2011

Borkedness fixed with Hamachi! Log in  as the instructions on the right.


Server borkedness has forced me to use Logmein Hamachi to get people on the server. This is temporary and I'll keep working to fix our log in issues. In meatime, see the current Logging into Server instructions (at right).


Thursday, Dec 8, 2011

Server is borked. Log in issues go beyond Diana's system. Liam tried to log in from EDGE Lab with no luck. Liam will pull out some of his hair and continue to work on it.


Tuesday, Dec 6, 2011

Updated our IP and established a new permanent DNS name for our server. While the IP number will change often, you should always be able to use: gamingedus.servegame.com:25565 to log into the game.


Hoping this will fix connection issues for Diana and others.


Monday, Dec 5, 2011

I've linked the server address to a server name, which will hopefully make logging in easier. In the server address window paste: gamingedus.liamodonnell.com:25565

Because I host the server on my network, I can't test if this works. But you can! Please try and tell me if it works or what error messages you get (via email or twitter dm)


Sunday, Dec 4, 2011

My IP address has changed! When logging into the server, enter the following as the server address:

GamingEdus Back Up! (sort of)

The new update of craftbukkit is still not out but I managed to hack the server into life to allow us to play again! Basically, the world and all our stuff is there, but many of the bells and whistles are not available. Not a big concern as most of the bells just allowed me to run the server more smoothly. The important thing is to TRY AND LOG IN again and see if it works. If it doesn't, let me know either here or via dm in twitter and i'll keep tinkering.

I'm so excited! I'll be on tonight for sure.



Minecraft Update and Server Update

(Sunday Nov 23, 2011)


The Minecraft update! Last week, Minecraft released their biggest update ever. After a year and a bit of being in Beta (testing mode), it is now "officially" released to the public. This means it's now $5 more expensive (but I hear teacher discounts are on the way.)  When MC updates, all the other independently created programs that run along side of the game (known as plugins) also need to update. But they can only *start* their updating after MC is released. I use a program called Bukkit to run our server. It's free and opensource and created by the generosity and passion of a few coders. These guys and girls are hard at work updating Bukkit. But it takes time.

Until the updated version of bukkit is released our server is running the old version of MC. If you have updated your game (as I did) to the new version of MC, you won't be able to get into our server. However, if you selected "not now" when asked to update in MC, you should be able to get into our server and I encourage you to try. If you did update can play in single player mode and create your own world (we won't be able to visit you, but you'll have some "alone time" :)

I'm working on getting the server updated and will let you know the moment it is done.



GamingEdus Server Info


While we teachers get our Minecraft accounts set up and learn to play, I've created a server hosted on one of my own boxes at home. It's called the "GamingEdusTestServer". This will be fine for us, but not appropriate for school use. I'm working to get us server space - stay tuned on that.


I'll keep the server running as long as possible each day, but can't guarantee hours of operation. If you try to connect and get a "timed out" error, the server isn't on. Also, all servers have to make initial contact with the Mojang servers before loading. If the Mojang servers go down (and they do) then you'll get the timed out error (so do all MC players around the world.) When this happens, there's nothing I can do until Mojang get their servers up. (This is happening less and less as MC gets bigger.)


In the meantime, here's how you can log into GamingEdus Server:


1. Launch Minecraft (assuming you've bought it, set up an avatar name, etc.)
2. Click on Multiplayer
3. Choose Direct Connect
4. In the Server Address window, enter this:
5. Click Join Server


To save time in the future you can add the server to a pre-set list. Here's how:

1. Log in and click Multiplayer.

2. Click Add Server

3. Name the server and add the IP address in the Server Address window:  gamingedus.servegame.com:25565

4. Click Done.

5. From now on, when you want to join the server, just select it and click: "Join Server" and you're in.


Enjoy! :)




Feel free to take what you want from the chests and build where ever you like. Avoid building near the spawn point as the blocks will just disappear.


Have fun!
