Below are 6 steps on how to properly connect to the server with all the mods working. We hope to see you at our virtual Barcraft!
Note, Do not skip any steps, it may screw things up if you do. Also, you must be using windows to use the minecraft mods, they will not work on Mac, or Linux
1. Install Flash
Download from here: Flash. Select Flash Player 11 for other browsers
2. Install Java
Download using this link: Java. This will install the 32 bit version of java. 64 bit java is not compatible.
3. Install MineCraft
We will be using the most recent version of MineCraft (1.6.2), which can be downloaded here: Minecraft. If you already have minecraft, It cannot have any mods, or resourse packs.
4. Install MineCraft Forge
Forge is required for this to work. It can be found here: Forge Mod Loader. Simply open the file and it will be installed automatically.
5. Install Minecraft Web Browser
Another automatic installation, which can be found here: Web Display Mod
All credit for making this possible goes to Buildlight for developing the Web Display mod for Minecraft. Link to his own thread can be found here: BuildLight thread
6. Start Minecraft
When opening the launcher, you should be prompted to login. After entering your info, at the bottom left, you will see an ability to select a profile. For the profile, select Forge. It may require you to put in your info again, that is normal. Then launch the game normally. If everything has been set up correctly, you should see the regular minecraft screen, and at the bottom left you'll see "4 mods loaded, 4 mods active". Then, click on multiplayer, click direct connect, and put in the IP address, which is "mc.virtualbarcraft.com" without the quotation marks. You should now be connected to server.
To avoid too many random people joining the server while we're still working on it, I will release the IP address to the server 3 hours before the actual show starts, right here in this post. These are the times at which the IP will be released:
CEST: 23/08/13 11:00 AM
EDT/EST: 23th August 2013 05:00 AM
PDT/PST: 23th August 2013 02:00 AM
KST: 23/08/13 18:00/ 06:00 PM
EDIT #1: We're running a bit late and we're postponing the release of the IP until further notice, sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. Follow @Zero_SC2 for updates
EDIT #2: The IP to connect to the Minecraft server is: 188.8.131.52:25565 (the last five digits is the port)
EDIT #3: The link for the Web Display mod has been fixed
EDIT#4: I just want to apologize to WCS, ESL and Blizzard. I was streaming our Barcraft, and without realizing my violation against the tournament, I was re-streaming it. I'm deeply sorry, I would never delibaretely hurt anyone, least of all one of my favorite gaming events.
EDIT #5: The server has changed to a dedicated host, the new IP is 184.108.40.206:25565
Thanks to Daenks for providing the dedicated server!
