Craften Terminal 4.2.1 released

Update: If the Craften Terminal crashes after the language selection dialog, please download¬†the following file and install vcredist_x86.exe (even if you’re on a 64-bit system).
Also, please make sure that your AV scanner doesn’t remove some of our files.

After a far too long break, we finally released the first patch update for the Craften Terminal 4.2. It fixes some bugs that appeared in the meantime.

  • Mojang Launcher doesn’t get destroyed by us anymore
  • We use our own Java if we can’t launch with your Java installation
    • Fixes a lot of problems with Java
  • Deactivated server list for now (will return in Craften Terminal 4.3, sorry for that!)
  • Improved language selection
  • Category “all mods” is now selected by default
  • Fixed some more small bugs

We are already working on Craften Terminal 4.3, which will then provide some bigger new features. ūüôā

Craften Terminal 4.0 released

ct40This morning at 2 clock it finally happened: After nearly five months, two betas and one Release Candidate, the new Craften Terminal 4.0 has finally been released. Download here.

The new version brings not only a completely revised design, but also many new features, performance improvements and bug fixes. The main novelty is probably the server list. Now you can quickly find new server with the plugins that you want to have and rate them if you like.

Excited about the new features? Here’s the changelog:

  • There is now a server list
  • Completely new design
  • Faster load times
  • The tray icon now has a context menu
  • There is a Jump List for Windows 7 and 8, so you can simply right-click on the icon in the taskbar for starting Minecraft or Craften Terminal
  • The login can be changed via the small arrow next to the play icon
  • Minecraft can only be started by clicking on the Play icon¬†(bold because it was overlooked by many)
  • Data in the internal browser are now cached (better performance)
  • Mods can be rated with stars now
  • Global Mod-search added: for example, if you are seearching for “Pixelmon” in 1.7.2 you’ll get results from other minecraft versions, too!
  • Problems with version changes, especially with Forge resolved by cleaning forge config after change
  • More options in the shoutbox (among other things, we show you some tips there currently with pictures)
  • (Can be enabled in the settings) Minecraft can be automatically started in full screen mode now *
  • Avatars in the shoutbox
  • Videos for mods and Minecraft versions can be hidden
  • Greatly improved performance (much lower CPU load than 3.5.5)
  • updated translations
  • Beautiful Server field in the shoutbox *

marked with a * have been added since the RC

Unfortunately, there was, despite numerous tests this morning some problems for which we apologize again. We have just released an update that fixes this bug and improved three GUI trifles. Now everything works!
With this small update, we have fixed the following errors:

  • Launcher updated forever
  • Server download button is cut off
  • Name of the selected mods are not displayed when the window is too small
  • Craften Terminal does not exit correctly after closing Fixed in Version 4.0.1
  • Distances in the context menu of the tray icon are too small

Craften Terminal 3.5.5 released

Last time we have thought that we were done with version 3.5, but unfortunately we have found more bugs – and fixed it thankfully!

Here are the new features and the bug fixes!

  • Versions and mods can be opened from the browser in Craften Terminal via special links now (of which we are soon on our mod page make use of)
  • Servers can be accessed via special links (√† la craftenterminal://join=144.76.69.42)! (For example, with this link)
  • The content of the speech bubble above is now changing from time to time
  • Bugfix: Crashbugs while chatting
  • Bugfix:¬†Crash at startup
  • Bugfix: Server download worked only once per version

Now we really hope that we can focus on the next version and we no longer have to “annoy” you with updates. ūüėČ

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 3.4.4

ctcards

With 3.4.4 we introduce the interactive shoutbox. By detection of specific elements such as an IP (“144.76.69.42”) or a chat channel (“# Craft Terminal”), completely new interaction possibilities arise.

  • Speed ‚Äč‚Äčimprovements when starting
  • New server and channel information displays for the shoutbox
  • Wiki tab removed
  • Modlist was occasionally empty

 

 

Craften Terminal 3.4.2 and Craften Launcher 0.5 released

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.

Craften Terminal 3.4.1 released

We just released the first update for Craften Terminal 3.4! It does not only contain bugfixes (for example it fixes the “piano2 bug” and crashes when loading the version list) but also adds some neat small features!

Since 3.4 you can vote whether a mod combination works. But that’s not the only thing you want to know about a mod you don’t know yet, right? You might aswell want to know if it is worth trying. So we added a voting function for single mods!

We also updated Craften Launcher so that it is able to launch the latest Minecraft snapshots. Why are you reading this when you could check out the awesome new world generator?

Finally, we simplified the chat a little – at least we hope so. You don’t need to enter a nickname anymore to join the chat. Just click on “Chat” and you’ll be connected as guest. If you have a name (most people seem to have at least one), you may change it by clicking “Change nickname”. It’s as easy as that and the next time you log in to our chat, this nickname is used automatically.

Notice for nerds: The update is not actually version 3.4.1 but 3.4.4997 as you may have seen in the setup. But talking about a version with a name you can’t remember is just not cool so we now introduce version numbers as you know them from Minecraft. With Craften Terminal 3.5 (yes, we already work on that), the versions will really be what we call them.
