Craften Terminal 3.5.3 released

This morning, we released yet another version of Craften Terminal. Why? Because we found three really bad bugs and fine-tuned the Chat!

  • Friends in the chat are now marked with a star
  • Enhanced the chat (i.e. the colors for the different roles)
  • Bugfix: Fixed problems downloading Craften Launcher, fixing problems starting Minecraft
  • Bugfix: Crash when clicking on some mods
  • Bugfix: Messages in the chat disappeared when writing another message

Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? Thanks to the people who reported their problems in the info dialog. Without you we hadn’t found those bugs!

Craften Terminal 3.5.2 released

ct352headAnother week is over and we’ve got a new Craften Terminal version for you! What we changed? What we added? Read on!

  • Added Minecraft head on the top
  • Added a report-a-problem button in the about dialog
  • Fixed problems with starting the launcher
  • Fixed chat messages not being shown under certain circumstances

Craften Terminal 3.5.1 released

A week ago, we released version 3.5. So this update is mainly a bugfix update.
Here are the changes:

  • Top right the currently installed Minecraft version is displayed. If mods are installed, they are also displayed when you move the mouse over it.
  • Better design options for the descriptions of Minecraft versions and mods by using a Markdown language.
  • From time to time we will update all descriptions. Until then, some descriptions might look a little odd.
  • Bugfix: Shoutbox has made the program freeze occasionally
  • Bugfix: Some YouTube links in the shoutbox were not recognized and therefore no preview is displayed.
  • Fix: Launcher is not installed correctly
  • Minor GUI changes and corrections

Now that the first bugs are fixed, we can work much more relaxed on version 3.5.2.
Stay tuned!
It will be awesome!

New Launcher and new Craften Terminal Beta

Halloween event is over

kuerbis_sieger

Our special halloweeen event is over (because Halloween is actually over) and we have a winner! kingangelo2 found all the pumpkins and is now a “Pumpkin Catcher” for one month. He also won 5000 R! Congratulations!

Additionally, JOkiel won 2000 R and Jan_0608 won 1000 R!

Today, our server was unreachable for some time. We are very sorry but fortunally, we were able to locate the problem and easily fix it so that the server is now running again.

Updated server to 1.6.4

Looking for a new 1.7-Bukkit release, we saw that there is a recommended build for Bukkit 1.6.4 since thursday. As that update is needed to migrate from 1.6.x to 1.7, we just updated our server.

Normally, nothing should be broken by this update. But if you get any errors, feel free to drop us a mail or a comment!
