I'm trying to set up an easy way to get into a server I'm running by just clicking on a .bat file or .command file, on PC and Mac, and I've found guides for getting it to work for 1.6 or 1.7.4, but none of them work any more for 1.7.9. Does anyone here know if there is a way currently?
If you are trying to set up a craftbukkit server, you should use this:
java -Xmx2000M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true PAUSE
But for this to work you need to download a craftbukkit server here:
Since Minecraft 1.7.5 and 1.7.9 are very similar, meaning that you can connect to a 1.7.5 server while using version 1.7.9, this should work. there are also lots of tutorials on youtube as well.
As of to my knowledge and research, there isn't any way to do this with a vanilla server however.
I hope this helped in any way.
