Posted on 2024-04-20 21:53, in Writing a Minecraft Beta server in Lua Link | ID: 765
Found my password after a long while \(^ ° ^)/ hello again

Been fiddling with writing a Minecraft server, but rather than the well-documented Classic Protocol (& extensions) I've done before, the more "Who's Documentation?" Beta 1.7.

I separated out an old copy of wiki.vg docs which are very useful but don't describe how to actually use half the packets. (Praise be to whoever the "Great Old Ones" are.)

Just got it to send a stone & air world and have the client spawn-in, after… too much getting simple things wrong.
Used LuaJIT to FFI in libdeflate for chunk encoding to then be very happy you can skip that altogether and just send mass block changes!

(Winsnore for the client as I just could not get it to run on my Linux)

Everything pure Lua so far, featuring inefficient number→binary en/decoding, and assert(false)ing on trying to decode a 64-bit number too large to be safe in a Lua float for now. and I am very grateful to Lars for his float encoder which I've bodged in for now

Next step is to handle multiple clients, let them see each other, and then to let people interact with the world…

The easy solution is clearly to have everything on a single line!

iirc some early Macs did LFCR, which is technically also correct from an ASCII/typewriter POV.
Don't forget Unicode throwing some new newline chars in the mix intended to replace both CR & LF

Hello from mothra on Plan 9 (9front)!
The forum is functional, but graphically not the best.
The only real issue is quotes are indistinguishable from regular messages.
Pfps appear twice and mothra dosen't resize images which takes much vertical space, but with Plan 9's way of scrolling this isn't a big issue.
Please await my figuring out taking a screen-shot in a non-raw format you lot can see.

Edit @ 3:05 PM
Ok so apparently you can't double-post here before 12hrs is up.
Lost my typed out message damnit. Input box in this browser is really buggy if you type something longer than the box.
Imagine LT and GT are themselves, seems I can't post those either without the sanitizer messing my post up.

So, snapping is easy, just topng LT/dev/screen GTsnap.png.

Then to upload to catbox.moe, it's hpost -u https://nofun.catbox.moe/ -m https://catbox.moe/user/api.php submit:Upload reqtype:fileupload fileToUpload@snap.png.

Could also do it through the browser if I wanted.

In that first screenshot you've 𝑒 times as much RAM than me, within 0.04% :)
I only upgraded to 6GB from 4GB recently…
(and I'm slightly confused why it's 6GB and not 6GiB, I thought memory came in 1024s?)

Feel free to boo me for… the majority of things in the list.

You watch some metal rollers press your coin, then it be dropped into the basin below. It has a picture… Shia LaBeouf on all fours?!

Via manipulation, I'd start with viral propaganda.
Alternatively, dress a point as a voxel and tell it to perform some bad act. Let society take place. You'll soon have a clear division between the point cloud and voxel grid. Just make sure that none of your beloved points convert convert to the voxel side, it can be quite a lossy process.

Seems you haven't blocked CSS content: in non-::after or ::before hehe
It's not officially part of standards but many Browsers support it.
keyframes and transforms are blocked though :(

(PS can you add preformatted to the quick style buttons?)

You watch the pebbles roll around in the machine, tumbling… tumbling…
You wake up. The vending machine deposited a pile of sand on your head.

Holy moly, didn't realise how expensive Pi's had become. :O
At that price it'd be better to look into some of those actual dedicated mini-servers rather than a Pi.
Pimoroni clearly has no stock as I can't even find Pis listed on the site at the mo', but does have some Pi 4's included with the essentials kit (£88/$98)
