Revision as of 14:12, 5 October 2015

A note about the edit I just made: I'm not sure if the incompatibility exists for all NVIDIA drivers, or just those that use nvidia-304xx, or if it's only my card that has the issue (EVGA GeForce GTX 650).

lwjgl crash trying to start the game from the launcher

Caused by: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0
at org.lwjgl.opengl.LinuxDisplay.getAvailableDisplayModes(SourceFile:954)
at org.lwjgl.opengl.LinuxDisplay.init(SourceFile:738)
at org.lwjgl.opengl.Display.(SourceFile:138)


Fixed by installing xorg-xrandr

Is this worth including in the article?

Sounds more like it should be added as a dependency to the minecraftAUR package. —Freso (talk) 19:07, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Server split

Why has Minecraft Server been split from this article? IMO they're both short enough to stay as a single article. — Kynikos (talk) 06:50, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for causing this inconvenience. I was confident that splitting the server section into its own page would seam like an obvious choice. Though both articles are not very lengthy, they each serve a different purpose. Wanting to play minecraft is completely independt from setting up a server. Furthermore both articles have the potential to become lengthy: The Minecraft client article could include some lines about modding capabilities and alternatives and the Server article may as well go into detail on how to configure and load plugins on the server.
However looking back I understand the critic and have no problem reverting the split. --Edh (talk) 07:22, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Edh for answering :) No inconvenience at all, and I understand your reasoning too, but this wiki is too generic to afford having separate articles for describing different sides of the same software, unless they are long enough, which is not the case here. If the client or server parts will be expanded in the future, we will be able to reconsider splitting them, but for the moment it's indeed better to merge them back together. You can however mark the appropriate sections with Template:Expansion using your ideas above, if you feel it can inspire somebody to write something about them one day. — Kynikos (talk) 09:19, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Done. Though I would not consider this as two different sides of the same software, I am fine with both options. Best Regards --Edh (talk) 18:43, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, also for your tidy edits :) With "same software" I was talking in general about the Minecraft "game": Minecraft servers and clients need each other in order to make the game work, and are developed specifically for that purpose only, i.e. Minecraft servers are useless without Minecraft clients, and vice versa. The first example of another server+client article that I've found is Synergy, however you can find others around if you want. Closing. — Kynikos (talk) 08:11, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
The Minecraft "client" works fine without a separate server though, as it has a built-in server which is used for single-player. --Freso (talk) 08:25, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

I'm fine with the de-splitting. :) Just wanted to clarify. --Freso (talk) 14:12, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
