Version 1.6.4 is here. There is basic support on enough plugins that we can upgrade now.
So next time you join the game make sure you click on Edit Profile in the bottom left corner and then select 1.6.4 in the Version drop down.
If you are using Magic Launcher then click on Setup and then Browse for the new version. After you find 1.6.4 in the Versions folder save the setup and then launch the game.
I will get some pictures up to document this process eventually.
Mojang has been acting weird a lot lately. Start your troubleshooting here https://help.mojang.com/. If there are red items on that page you may not be able to connect to any minecraft server.
If minecraft is up check to make sure our server is up. A good ez resource are any of our profiles at voting sites. I like http://minecraftservers.org/server/76507.
Our game server has an uptime of 99.2% so we have less than 6 hours of downtime a month. Our server is hosted on on a Level 2 fiber optic connection provided by cognet a company known to provide lightspeed connectivity and excellent uptime.
Finally if you are having a hard time check to make sure you are using the same version as we are. Our server is currently using version 1.7.2 and your client will need to match that for you to play. Please refer to the post below to find out how to make sure you client is matching our server's version.
If you are experiencing game lag while playing lets check to see if its your network. Open your command prompt (Windows click start, search for cmd and open) then type traceroute mc1.bananasmores.com. Use the three sets of numbers on the left and look for a large difference from one line to another. If you results have one copy the results and email them to me at cynixx3 at gmail dot com (ignore any *).
Hello all. If you are having a hard time joining our server because we are out of date here is what you can do to play with us.
If you game is open close it. Re run your launcher. Before you click play! Click on Edit Profile in the bottom left corner. In the new window look for Use Version about half way down and select 1.6.2 in the dropdown box. Now just click Save Profile and Play.
Why are we not updating right away?
As you may know we are using a craftbukkit server. Now that Mojang released an update the Bukkit community needs time to rewrite their API and plugins so that they are compatible with the latest update. As soon as they have a stable build and our important plugins are compatible with the new API we will upgrade and ask everyone to update their profiles to use the new version.
If you have any questions feel free to ask and hopefully we will still see everyone in the game.
