I have never installed Minecraft, so I don't have the files.
Simply download the server files from their original location (not GC) and figure out which file should be used to start the server. Rename that file to whatever file GC tries to start, and you should hopefully be set.
but the minecraft server is actually just 1 file.
for windows it comes with a minecraft.exe which actually just starts the jar file using java.
on linux you just have the .jar file and you are suppose to run it like this:
$ java -jar minecraft_server.jar
problem is that I can not tell GC to pupt "java -jar" into the command like.
GC always trys to run the "minecraft_launch.x86" file, which is probably just a shell script to start it.
GC devs have created a start script for windows that starts the server and somehow keeps track of the server or the pid of the server so that GC knows if the server is still running.
renaming minecraft_server.jar to minecraft_launch.x86 would not work, because you can not execute a .jar file like that from what i know, you whould get:
bash: ./minecraft_launch.x86: cannot execute binary file
since I don't know how GC keeps track of the server status, I can't write a start script my self.
that would start the server and end. but GC will have no idea that the server is running and start it again and again and again. (had the same problem on windows, before GC added a start script for it)
and as it seems, GC already had a start.sh file once, no idea why it is not included any more.
all I need is this file, then it should work.
GameCreate: could you please check if you still have this start.sh somewhere, and hand paste here or inculde in the linux install files?
Have you tried to download the windows startscript that GC uses? I would guess it can easily be translated to bash.
If you don't have a Windows host on which you can/want to install GC:
Enable the GC log if you haven't already. Redownload minecraft on your linux host. The logfile will tell you that it downloaded a file called minecraft.txt from a specific URL. That file lists all the files to be downloaded for a (supposedly) complete Minecraft installation for Linux. You want that file for Windows, so use your web browser, modify the URL and replace 'linux' with 'win32'. Inspect the resulting minecraft.txt-file and find the file(s) you are interested in. Download the file from the previously found URL, but replace 'minecraft.txt' with 'minecraft/path/to/the/file', where 'path/to/the/file' is found in minecraft.txt.
