That's too bad. :<
Yeah it is a bit expensive. It was cheaper when I bought it during alpha. Stal, the co-administrator has been working on some alternatives; it's possible he can find a better way to allow cracked clients while mitigating the hazardous effects. He made a bukkit mod that authenticated registered users while letting unregistered users in. This would prevent server take-overs, but bans would still be impossible. The only way I can see around the problems is to write a custom authentication server, which I may consider in the future.
Sounds like plenty of work to be honest
Nah you wouldn't want me on the server I'd just do giant dicks the whole time
There are some pretty cool users with cracked clients, too.
Stal is currently working on the auth server "Uboauth". Cracked clients will just have to install a client-side mod to login when it's ready.
for the record
this is a terrible idea
just use my other server mod
I just realized i kind of stated I had cracked. I don't. :\
Boyyyy am i an idioooot. I thought they were saying the bukkit was pirated. Meanwhile, i could have sworn to god I wasnt smoking anything.
