Re: Dreambuilder Not in Configure List

None of my posts mention mesecons. Okay, so I'm working on two issues. 1. Get Minetest Game working and use dreambuilder_modpack. 2. Get mesecons working. I am not sure where or how you are getting the game, but you are getting the wrong version. I believe I used > git clone --depth=1 https://githu...

Re: Dreambuilder Not in Configure List

1 - I thought you are trying to run the Lord of the Test game, not Minetest game? You said that mesecons works in Minetest Game so I'm trying that also. 2 - That error tells us you are using the stable release version of Minetest, but the development version of Minetest game. The fireflies mod is o...

Re: Dreambuilder Not in Configure List

make sure Lord of the Test works fine by itself first, then add the mods you want one at a time. Okay, I've moved all mods out of my mods folder. Minetest Game still gives the same errors. 2018-10-20 19:38:02: ERROR[Main]: ...etest/bin/../games/minetest_game/mods/fireflies/init.lua:261: attempt to ...

Re: Error: Mesecons: Subgame specified in default_game

I noticed that I had mesecons in my mods directory and also in the dreambuilder_modpack directory. I deleted the one in dreambuilder_modpack. I deleted mesecons and then downloaded the lateset mesecons from Github. I confirmed that core.LIGHT_MAX is defined. I quit and restarted Minetest. I still do...

Dreambuilder Not in Configure List

I'm kind of new and still hacking around on Minetest. I'd like to use dreambuilder_modpack in "Lord of the Test". I moved it out of games and into mods. Now when I choose a game like "Lord of the Test" I go to configure and "Enable MP" I get conflict. 2018-10-19 22:05:04: ERROR[Main]: ModError: Unre...

When creating the new game I used "Configure" / "Enable MP" to enable Mesecons that led to the errors below. When I went bac...

Re: Multiple Users in Same Physical Location

Today (while on someone else's WiFi) I managed to make one laptop the Host and another laptop joined that game.
I used
ifconfig
wlp3s0: inet addr:10.0.10.87
I also made sure that my VPN was off. I wonder if that was the problem earlier.

Re: Multiple Users in Same Physical Location

On your hosting machine find the IP address via "ifconfig" or "ip addr" commands. When ipconfig gives me a response like the below, is it the "inet addr" that I want, i.e. I enter "172.16.11.51" in "address". wlp3s0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 54:8c:a0:05:d8:53 inet addr:172.16.11.51 Bcast:172.16.11...

Okay, but how do I do that? Apparently it is safe for me to set up a "server" and I can be confident that I am not "open to the world" because I have not yet done the port forwarding.

@webmanoffesto That's Minetest 0.3.x and we're about to reach 0.5.0 soon. Uninstall this outdated one, update your compiler (gcc) and compile it from source to have a recent version. I'm not sure how to do that. Can you give me details, or give me links. I did a DuckDuckGo search but didn't find an...

Re: Copy subgames to other Ubuntu / Linux computer

(L)Ubuntu and I assume all *nix distros, the subgames are in /usr/share/minetest/subgames. This was the only place I could install them and get them to work. You'll need to sudo open a file manager to have the correct privileges to copy the subgame to this location. I think they need to be in /home...
