It’s finally there! After about two months of development, we are ready to release a new beta version of Craften Terminal!
We recoded almost everything to make everything faster and much more stable (well, let’s see how stable…)
- Remade many features
- “Crypted” text is now animated in Minecraft server description boxes in the shoutbox
- Minor design enhancements
- Improved mod search, mod categories are working once again
- New Craften Launcher (fixes many bugs with new Minecraft versions!)
- Many small improvements. You might not actually see everything but it’s there.
You frequently ask: “Can you add the hexxit modpack?” Well, we can’t include Modpacks from us in the terminal at the moment. BUT! in preperation to some further steps we’ll add all mods included in the hexxit modpack. See our progress below:
(Linked mods are already added)
- Armor Bar
- Back Tools
- Hexxit Basemods
- Hexxit Configs
It’s sunday again week 43 and that means new mods! But first free cookies for everyone. *I’m a cookie and I’m free*
As there are currently no important mods available for 1.7+ we extend 1.6.4/1.6.2/1.5.2.
Some of you (100 Votes) wanted the Display Mod for 1.6.2. But unfortunately it is java 64 bit incompatible. So we can’t add that.
So whats new?
1.5.2 (475 Votes) ComputerCraft
1.6.2 (156 Votes) ComputerCraft
1.6.4 (3000 Votes) Monster Hunter Frontier
1.7.2 TooManyItems None-Forge

This tuesday, we released a new version of our Craften Terminal. It’s time to show what changed!
- Added french translation
- Improved server and channel boxes in the shoutbox
- Updated Craften Launcher to work with Minecraft 1.7
With 3.4.4 we introduce the interactive shoutbox. By detection of specific elements such as an IP (“22.214.171.124″) or a chat channel (“# Craft Terminal”), completely new interaction possibilities arise.
- Speed improvements when starting
- New server and channel information displays for the shoutbox
- Wiki tab removed
- Modlist was occasionally empty
After a rich beta test a new version of Craften Terminals has finally been released! Also the Craften Launcher has been updated.
As have some of you had problems starting the crafting Launcher, we developed it again based on Java 1.6 and it contains no more JavaFX. This required a complete redesign of the UI. The minimum requirement is now java 1.6. For those of you who want to take a look into the source code: http://craften.de/launcher
The following bugs have been fixed:
- Error when starting the Craften Launcher
- Error when retrieving the Minecraft server connection data under Windows 8/8.1
- Fixed crash when starting Minecraft or the Craften Launcher with a faulty Java installation - Fixed several bugs in the chat
We implemented a tour guide to help people with less experience.
Once you look at the status bar of the terminal you’ll realize new buttons. You will gain direct access to the tour guide and a button to start Minecraft as quick as possible.
Also notice our deeper integration of “Direct-Join”. You’ll now be able to create shortcuts on your desktop to directly enter a channel!
Without saying a word we published a new beta version of Craften Terminal yesterday, so it’s time to tell you what changed and why you should download it!
The changelog isn’t very long but the changes are important, we recommend the new beta to everyone who has problems launching Minecraft.
- Redesign of Craften Launcher to fix compatibility issues with JavaFX (thank you, Oracle…)
- Fixes problems launching Minecraft
- Fixed errors when retrieving server information after clicking on an IP in chat or shoutbox on Windows 8/8.1
“Craften Launcher ist not launching!”
Be sure to install the latest Java Version 7u40.
Deinstall all older versions of Java.
Note: For 64 bit: http://www.chip.de/downloads/Java-Runtime-Environment-64-Bit_42224883.html
Our programms are now in new versions available. It is just a minor release. So we mainly focused on bug-fixes and performance issues.
The Craften Launcher now has a new feature. Direct connect is now available for you. Also we spent time in fixing login issues. So now you get more comprehensive error messages. If you don’t know whether you should use your Minecraft account name or your email-address, just click on the link right underneath the textbox.
Craften Terminal got some bug fixes as well. For example the chat now runs more smothly. We fixed some issues with joining other channels. Also we fixed some major issues with Windows XP and .Net Framework 4.0, which caused some programm crashes. Also we are proud to introduce the direct connect. Just click on a ip-address and you join this minecraft-server. If you have an other minecraft-version installed, you can just change it.
Important!!! You have to update your java installation to at least version 7 update 40.
Some users were not able to launch Minecraft 1.6.x with Forge using Craften Launcher. That means they can’t play with any Forge mods.
This problem can now be fixed by redownloading and reinstalling Craften Terminal. We just forgot to add a tiny file when releasing Craften Terminal 3.4.1! Next time we release, we will double-check everything. Sorry!
