RetextureKing
Level 46 : Master Technomancer
NOTE: THIS HAS BEEN MERGED INTO HERE. I WILL NOT BE UPDATING THIS, BUT INSTEAD UPDATING THE VERSION IN THE TOOLKIT. (IT'S ALREADY 2 VERSIONS AHEAD!)

NOTE: I am SS111 on Minecraft Forums and anyone else claiming to have made this tool/to be me is lying. If you want to see the Minecraft Forums post, go here.

About this program


Many people just can't seem to make a Minecraft server; Be it the startup script or the port forwarding. Also, having the entire summer to express my programming skills, I decided to make this. Sure, there are other ones out there, but I wanted to make one. This does what the title implies: Makes you a Minecraft server with the click of a few buttons. Please note that this application is in alpha stage and does not yet have features such as a proprieties editor and an external mod loader. These features are planned and will eventually be implemented.

Important notes

  • Virus scan
  • Make sure ALL instances of Java (java.exe, javaw.exe, java *
  • 32.exe, etc.) are closed, or you will be stuck with an invisible server running on your computer!
  • For the automatic port forwarding to work, UPNP MUST enabled on your router AND your computer.
  • This application REQUIRES .NET Framework 4.
  • I AM NOT providing help with UPNP. If the portforwarding fails/doesn't work, just go here to do it manually.
  • This made it on the front reel TWICE! Thanks guys!
  • WOW! 11,000+ downloads! Thanks!

NOTE: Don't run "EnableUPNP.exe" directly, or it won't fully enable UPNP. It has to be run through the application.


  1. Click (WINDOWS KEY) + R at the same time on your keyboard.
  2. In the "Run" dialog, type "services.msc" and click enter.
  3. If they are not started yet, start "UPnP Device Host" and "SSDP Discovery".
  4. Click Start and search for "cmd.exe". Right click it and select "Run as Administrator"
  5. Type "netsh firewall set service type = upnp mode = enable" and click enter.

Your done!


Features

  • Automatic port forwarding - You don't even need your router credentials!
  • Automatic enabling of UPNP - Don't do any work so my program can port forward for you! It's all automatic!
  • Support for Bukkit, FTB, Tekkit, Voltz, and vanilla Minecraft - Your server, your way.
  • Always get the latest and greatest Bukkit recommended build - Don't wait for me to update the application each time a new one comes out!
  • Automatic updates - When I release the latest and greatest updates, you get them also.
  • Fluid and easy to use - Never make a server manually again!


Planned features

  • Proprieties editor
  • External mod loader
  • "Flashier" UI
  • Mac version
  • And more...


Installation and use


  1. Download the ZIP file.
  2. Extract ALL the files into a folder.
  3. Run "MSC -Alpha.exe" and update to the latest version.

Important note: Do NOT rename, remove, or edit any files after the extraction. Every file is needed to run the program, and renaming them will cause fatal errors.

Troubleshooting


Q: MSC -Alpha never stops generating files!
A: You need to update to the latest version (1.0.4 address this issue). If that still doesn't help, run "gen.bat" while MSC -Alpha is generating files.


Q: When I start my server I get "'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file" in the console window!
A: You either don't have the correct Java for your OS (Pick 32-bit or 64-bit, respectively based on your OS) or you need to set the PATH variable.

Q: "[WARNING] Perhaps a server is already running on that port?" shows up in the console window!

A: This means a Minecraft server is already up and running. Close all running servers and try again.

Q: When I try to start my server, I get "Invalid argument: -d64"!
A: This means that your computer is 64-bit but you don't have 64-bit Java. Install it or remove that "-d64" from your "Start Server.bat".

Is your issue not listed here? Send me a message or post in the comments. If all you say is "It doesn't work!111!one!!", I am not going to help you and will almost definitely delete the comment. Please be specific.

An "invisible server" means one you can't see. When MSC -Alpha generates files, it starts the server, but makes it invisible to you. When it ends the server, it ends the first instance of Java. So if you had Minecraft running when you made the server, it would have closed Minecraft instead of the server, leaving a server you can't see running.

Once I press the Make A Server button, an error message comes up saying port forward failed, also something like "is the updp for both your computer and router enabled?" so i went to my router website thing and i can change a setting for attack detection for "TCP/UDP Port Scan" (which is enabled), should i change this?, is there any harm that can be done by not having this enabled?

I have been trying to make a server for months now. I decided to try this server creator and i'm glad i did. At first it didn't work for me, so i decided to email him for help. He not only helped me get the things that i needed to make a server, but also helped me through all the problems I encountered. I would recommend this to anyone who has trouble creating servers.It does all the work for you. The best part is that it even makes modded servers.

Funny thing is, I'm just in the process of adding Tekkit Lite and Minecraft 1.4.7 support. That should be released in a couple of days. If you want Minecraft 1.4.7, your going to need to use the Custom JAR option.

And of course, enjoy :)
