Re: Minetest 5.0.0

Awesome! I'm building it right now.

BTW, I use Ubuntu at home and Arch on my laptop. The Arch packages are usually pretty close to current, but a few weeks behind maybe.

Normally, I build from source.

Re: help! server will not load, this error

As I understand, this is due to the "Server announce" feature. This feature allows your server to be listed on the "Servers" tab on the main menu for all Minetest users. Although this is eventually desirable, try disabling it to see if the server will run. In the minetest.conf file: server_announce ...

One thing to try is copying the world, the mods, and the game to your .minetest folder in /root.

Re: help! server will not load, this error

Your Minetest installation thinks that it is a shared, system-wide installation. That's why it's looking in /usr/local/share for Minetest files. This would be the case after using a prebuilt RPM package to update. What folder are you keeping your server in? There is a big difference between minetest...

Wow. Wren looks like a cool language. The documentation doesn't seem finished, though. The section on the C API says "TODO", so I guess we're on our own there.

Re: Minetest on iPhones

For those who have OSX/macOS, I wonder if they could use Xcode and compile it themselves. I haven't used Xcode much, but it has an iOS emulator. I wonder if you could find the .ipa package and copy it to the iPhone via something like https://www.macblurayplayer.com/iphone-explorer.htm . I'm not sure...

Minetest was the first computer game I ever played on my homebuilt desktop, on Ubuntu. It was also the first game I set out to modify and customize. Great job...

Server Terminal

Hello. Hopefully this is in the right place. This is my first topic. I see on the changelog for 0.4.14 that an ncurses server terminal was added. I have basic knowledge of what ncurses is, but I don't really understand what changed. I thought that the update was adding a terminal that you could type...

Re: Minetest for Xbox and IOS?

Hello. I just read this topic. I think that Xbox One is probably an easier target than iOS. I'm not sure what the "third-party approval policy" is for MS, but Apple's is almost certainly worse (when it comes to GPL compliance). Additionally, there are several illegal Minetest ports to iOS (they are ...

Hey everyone. It's Saturday WOOOT! And I got Minetest for Android to connect to a server that I host on Ubuntu and play on with my friends. Oddly, I had never gotten past "Media" before, and I had let it load for over 30 minutes. But, it worked and now should be cached and playable! :) Nexus 7 for t...
