Well, it's a pain in the butt to code, so that's why I waited so long before doing it.

Yeah, there's a reason I stick to mechanical engineering.

I see your working on some adding some stuff into this already astronomically amazing piece of software. I have a slight suggestion or maybe its already in there. You already have settings to upload the data to the Solder Installation provided the user has an MySQL setup and it creates the pack for you already in the dashboard which is equally as awesome.

 

What about creating a feature in the program to pull from the Solder MySQL to auto-populate the local database that is stored on the user's computer when the mod is looking if items have already been uploaded. I see that as potentially being especially helpful for mods that are missing .info files and the user has already uploaded them and created them manually via the solder dashboard. Thoughts?

I would need to manipule the solder database, aka change how the database looks.

While that shouldn't mess anything up solderwise, i'm not really sure how big the payof is.

Ahh I see, alright. I didn't realize the two databases had a different structure. I thought they mimicked each other or the query script only used/pulled the necessary information and uploaded it.

 

Understood, was just a random thought that came to mind. But anyways keep up the awesome work. This is by far one of the best applications I have seen.

Actually it's not the interaction between the databases that is the issue. It's that Solder stores the md5 value of the zip file, while solderhelper stores the md5 of the actual modfile. This means to save it in the remote database i would have to create a separate table to store everything solderhelper stores locally.

Not sure if i'm doing it wrong or if modpack packer doesnt react as expected. My scripts for minetweaker are in :

  • root
    • scripts
      • nameofthescript.zs

Modpack packer is asking me if I want also to upload the scripts folder. I answer yes.

I end up with the following: No script folder and:

  • root
    • nameofthescript.zs (no folder created)

My config is also not uploading to server properly (but twice a zip is created and empty) in:

  • mods
    • config
      • config.name.version.zip (empty)
    • name.version.configs
      • config.name.version.zip (empty as well)

When unpacking with technic launcher, the config file is empty, and the script is unpacked at the wrong place. Could you help me please?

Either you are using some really odd filestructuring, or you selected the wrong inputfolder. The inputfolder should be the mods folder of your instance, and sadly that instance structure doesn't make any sense so me.

And List View is now online. Go forth and break all the things.

To enable it just change the "missing info" selection to "Create List".

I hope the interface makes sense. I have tried making things as descriptive as possible, but likely not everything will make sense to everybody.

Nice, but I don't know how to use it, I see SolderHelper application, but when I launch her, nothing happens

yep i Can diagnose nothing from that.

But i guess you havent given it the time to start. Depending on your computer it can take up to ten minuttes to start the first time.

I'm on Debian 7.7, I have done "git clone https://github.com/zlepper/TechnicSolderHelper.git" I have installed it, but when I run SolderHelper application, nothing happens

You need to install mono runtime environment first, then you can download the zip listed in the install script. I can't make the advanced guide right now as I'm not on my computer.

Oh ok, but the mono runtime environnement was installed during the installation of the TechnicSolderHelper, I see that in the console

Then there should be an run solderhelper.sh file.

Otherwise the command "mono solderhelper.exe" should start the application.

New version released with lots of bugfixes, mainly:

  • Correct data now being sent to community storage.
  • minecraft 1.7.10_pre4 no longer shows up in minecraft version lists.
  • The minecraft version are now selectable from a list, not from direct textinput.
    • This also means you can now select the minecraft version from the main SolderHelper interface without having to select a forge version.
  • Authors are now also being stored on the community storage.

The last change also forced me to reset the database, else it would cause issues with mods already there.

Regarding the linux install instructions, you can simply run this:
 

curl "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zlepper/TechnicSolderHelper/master/installer.sh" | sh

curl echos the contents of the URI to stdout, which we pipe to sh. This way we only need to run one command instead of two. Additionally, we don't save install.sh to disk.

Ohh yeah, that's a good idea. Will update the OP.

Why did you get rid of the thing that should what it was doing, I quite enjoyed that feature.

Last update, it was halfway broken.

EDIT: readded it. It's now less broken.

When configuring my FTP credentials, I put my username as my FTP username and password as my ftp password and the hostname as "mrkirby153.tk" which is my ftp hostname. However, it keeps saying that my hostname is invalid. What goes in the hostname field?

EDIT: I am a derp. I forgot I was using SFTP instead of plain FTP. Any chance for SFTP support?

I'll see what I can do about adding SFTP support.

Also the hostname should be writen with the protocol first like this:

ftp://zlepper.dk

      Hey guys, anyone got a good modpack base on nevermine2 with a server download ?
    • By ThatSourMelon
      Is this a bug? I don't know... feel free to move the forum. But I created a mudpack. I put it in drobox and I made it on the Technic Platform. When I search it on the technic launcher I install it, and click play. When Minecraft opens its just vanilla. It does not have a mods option, so its not running forge or something... I have a mods folder, I included modpack.jar, But I have done it a few times (a lot) and it still runs as vanilla. The Mod Pack is called Vanilla Revised and I just put a bunch of client mods in there for stuff. Here is the link to the dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/afx5v05b7ymiahv/Vanilla Revised.zip?dl=1  Can someone look at it for me please and tell me what is wrong? Thx.

      I am trying to create a custom modpack but everytime I try putting in the direct download link in the Modpack Location prompts me with an error "The Modpack Location you entered is not a valid location.". I've tried uploading it one dropbox, fortunately it works, but with one drive it doesn't work. With onedrive i can easily edit the mods as i can drag the mods in the zip file in one drive, where as with dropbox, i have to reupload the whole thing from scratch everytime i want to add single mod, and that takes HOURS!

      I can get the direct download link from one drive by clicking embed on the file from onedrive and copying the link, and replace embed with download, it works when i put the link in my browser, but technic is not accepting the link for some reason, even though it's a direct download.

      Any suggestions?

      None of the logs from the server show anything out of the ordinary, But whenever I try to join my server, I move around for about 5-10 seconds, and then it says a fatal error occured.
      The only thing I believe to be peculiar in the logs are in my latest.log folder for the client, where this is printed-
      [17:27:26] [Client thread/ERROR]: Can't ping [IP]: Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.codec.DecoderException: com.google.gson.JsonSyntaxException: Expected status to be a JsonObject, was "Ser...g."
      This has never been a problem before, My friends on different networks cant even connect. i have tried to report forward twice, to no avail.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.
