Completely off topic.. A player wanting to create some unwanted drama sent me a screenshot to read chat. It wasn't the chat I found interesting.

Does the anti cheat not detect such cheats?

I don't have any anti-cheat. The only ones I've tried just rang out a bunch of false alarms. nocheatplus wouldn't let ppl jump and kicked ppl for standing on the edge of a block (flying).

Why is there hate towards ViaVersion? o.0
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:23
Is there? ;)
lenis0012
@lenis0012
Jun 01 2016 19:24
Yeah a bit
which is pissing me off
because at least ViaVersion works
and 1.9 spigot doesn't
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:25
Where do you see that hate? :O I don't see it on spigot or somewhere else
lenis0012
@lenis0012
Jun 01 2016 19:25
a lot of devs look down on the plugin
Mats

its pretty bullshit that you dont get support for 1.8 issues on 1.8 servers with viaversion
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:30
You mean in the spigot bugtracker?
Or just in general
On the forum

I don't care that much about that cause updates and such, but I do dislike people stating "If you use ViaVersion you don't get support" as it can be used on 1.9

Since I first going involved in running a mc server the biggest problem I've had to deal with is losing half my players each time mc vanilla updates until I can get my server up to current. It forces me to update b4 plugins are ready and even b4 spigot is stable. Recently a bug in 1.9.4 slowed my server to the point I was losing players. viaverion allowed me to run 1.9.2 with no loss of players. It also allowed me to run my 1.9 mods again. More importantly it has let me wait till everything is stable b4 updating. I no longer worry about hurriedly getting things ready for an update. I can rest easy on a stable version knowing everyone can connect. I see already that I don't have to worry about 1.10 and whatever bugs it will bring because compatibility is already being worked on. I personally believe viaversion is the best thing to ever happen to Minecraft.

We follow the snapshots now, that'll (if it works out) make way less bugs at the release date

I dont understand spigot 1.9
action bar does not work like this:
setActionBar(new ComponentBuilder("Choosing map in ").color(ChatColor.GOLD)
but does work like this
setActionBar(new BaseComponent[] {new TextComponent(ChatColor.GREEN + "TEST")});
thats the most retarded thing
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:35
Oh I created my own component library thingy
Didn't know there existed one for spigot lol

"you don't get support" is dev code for "I don't understand the issue"

I've seen a pattern of devs not wanting to continue support for 1.8. It may be the 'if you run viaversion' is just an excuse.
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:48
Well I understand why devs only support the latest version
Myles
@MylesIsCool
Jun 01 2016 19:48
People should update in the long run though :p
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:48
Yeah I'm updating as soon my playerbase is 1.9 for 90%
With playerbase I mean uhhh 20 people
lenis0012
@lenis0012
Jun 01 2016 19:49
we had 93/96 1.9 players the other day
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:50
Oh nice I'm jealous,
I'm most of the time the only one on 1.9

Oh I see what you mean Lenis

The plugin injects itself deep into the server and performs modifications that can cause major issues.

10/10
For the research

In retrospect I pm'd him and explained that it's not as bad as other protocol solutions and he explained it was more of, that people with not a lot of knowledge don't know how to fix their server when they're using incompatible plugins etc on 1.8
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 19:56
oh
Like that
But still, that could also happen without ViaVersion
FatherWh0
@FatherWh0_twitter
Jun 01 2016 20:06
So he's suggesting the ability to stay with 1.8 is the issue.
Mats
@Matsv
Jun 01 2016 20:08
Well I would recommend you to update eventually when your server is ready for it, you can't stay on 1.8 forever
Well you can
but that will also give issues
FatherWh0
@FatherWh0_twitter
Jun 01 2016 20:09
Agreed
We all need polar bears eventually.
xD
And beetroot. You can't live without beetroot.
