Attack of the B-Team Server Setup on Mac [HELP]

5 posts in this topic

Hey so I'm trying to setup my own AOTBT server on my Mac, but I'm not sure what I need to fix. I've setup a vanilla server on my mac, so I have somewhat of an idea of setting it up, and have already forwarded my port.

One thing I noticed was that the 'launch.bat' file will not open saying that I dont have the proper application to open it.

If there's anyone that can help me with setting it up, or letting me know if it's even possible to setup on a mac, it would be much appreciated!

Try making a file called in that folder with the following text in it;


cd "$(dirname "$0")"
exec java -Xmx3G -Xms2G -jar BTeam.jar nogui
So you know what that does;
Tells MacOS which script interpreter to use for the following lines (Bourne Again Shell)
cd "$(dirname "$0")"
Makes the script run in the current directory that you clicked it on in the MacOS GUI
exec java -Xmx3G -Xms2G -jar BTeam.jar nogui
This one's like the windows one essentially, it translates to;
Run the Java compiler with maximum allowed memory 3GB, start with 2GB allocated memory, open the BTeam.jar file and use the nogui argument on it (doesn't display the full server window, minecraft thing).
Then it should "Just Works"?

Should i create a start.command text for it? The launch.bat doesnt work.

Yeah, call it launch.command instead if you just want to be able to click it, that's fine.  It should have the same thing in it as that example I gave you (a .sh file is just a .command file that needs to be run from the console anyway).

      Do you love Runescape? Or maybe even WOW...... Maybe any decent mmorpg? Well if you answered yes to any of the above then you are at the right place.

      I introduce to you, Runescape in Minecraft!!! Now this is not going to be an easy journey, you will have to grind just like in most all mmorpgs.

      There is over 25 skills to master and level up, there is a 1 of a kind economy system with merchants! The list goes on and on.

      Best of all, you are able to do all this on a dedicated server where you can join your friends or even enemies! Yes, there is pvp, it will not be easy but I promise you this.... It will be challenging, which lets face, Minecraft is no challenge.

      Your journey awaits you!!!

      (the server is already in your server list when installing the modpack) but just incase:

    • Server Issues
      By SamPhoenix8991
      I have a server set up and working for a custom modpack, originally based off FTB infinity - which I ran perfectly fine.
      The modpack I created has about 50 fewer mods (However the mods included are not all the same), but the server has awful lag. My internet connection is fine and RAM usage sits at about 50% but the CPU usage gets to 80-90% at launch and then continues to sit around 75-85% for no apparent reason.
      I have included a picture of all the mods below.
