Re: HowTo: Configure 7 default items in minetest.conf?

Hello Freefall,

We have a first Scrum training session based on Minetest at the end of this month. It will probably make us do some last improvements on the setup.

I can publish here or on Github all the configuration files then if you might be interested.

Have fun too!

Re: Lost in configuration...

The admin is a server-side setting, called name (not admin). The client-side value of name isn't used in dedicated servers Thanks for the advice. I tried to add the name = xxx setting in both my minetest.conf files on the server, but when I login as xxx and try to fly, it says that the fly ability ...

Re: Lost in configuration...

I must be really stupid, but I cannot enter the /grantmeall command because of the letter 'm' (small caps) being configured by default to open / close the terminal. I have tried to change this in the Keys section, but it has no effect...

Re: Lost in configuration...

Hello,

Thank you for your answer, crystal clear ;)

Does this mean that the Admin status also has to be setup on the client side?

Re: HOWTO: Setup timed sessions

Hello!

Thank you very much for your help.
I will try the given solutions and choose the best one in my context.

Finally, is it possible to show a watch / timer / countdown... on the screen of every player?
Have you ever heard of something like that? Maybe a mod?

Hello, I was wondering: is it possible to setup timed session for a game? This is what I have in mind: As a "game master", I can start a 15 minutes sessions. When time is over, it becomes impossible to interact with the map (kind of frozen ?) As a "game master", I can start 3 ses...

Re: Server shuts down in the middle of a game

Hello Krock,

You were right: I had an obsolete mod activated that generated this bug. Just by disabling this mod resulted in the server not returning any error any more.

Thank you very much for your great help and support!

Stéphane.

Re: HOWTO: setup default controls on server side?

I could find the answer reading this doc :
https://github.com/celeron55/minetest/b ... nf.example

You can setup specific control keys by adding specific instructions to the minetest.conf file.

Sorry for the noise

I think I might need to reset something but I don't know how. because it looks like the 'mg_name = flat' is not taken into consideration. The only thing yo...
