GroupManager Alternative?

Discussion in 'Server & Community Management' started by WiseHollow, Mar 1, 2016.

  1. Hello. Is there a permissions plugin that works in Spigot 1.9? I tried using GroupManager, and it throws out errors on startup?

    EDIT: I got GroupManager working again. :)

  2. How did you manage to make it work? Multiple people have the same issue (including myself) and are looking for a way to fix it. :s

  4. Put GroupManager.jar into your BuildTools folder and then run:

    java -jar BuildData/bin/SpecialSource-2.jar map -m CraftBukkit/deprecation-mappings.csrg -i MyPlugin.jar -o MyPlugin-fixed.jar

    Replace "MyPlugin" with whatever you have the GroupManager jar named (Some have GroupManager.jar and some EssentialsGroupManager.jar)

  7. Thank you very much!
    For those who may not have the ability to pull that off, or too lazy, you can take a risk and download my converted. I ran the same method nickshelton80 did. Entirely up to you guys to try.

    Anyone having trouble with multiple worlds and group manager?
  9. Does that method work with other plugins that aren't working in 1.9?
  10. I believe some of them, yes. :)
  11. Thanks, I'll give it a shot, I'll post the ones it worked with

  12. After the fix, '/setspawn' doesn't work. Says I have no permission even with * perm and OP.
  13. Odd, I didn't have any issues with that. I think anyway I'm going to use bPermission's converter so I don't have to worry about GM breaking more in another update.

  14. I'm considering doing the same change. GroupManager is no longer supported so it might be time for a change.
  15. Someone should take up the responsibility and take over group manager.
  16. I may publish my own. But doubt it since I just cannot find the time for +1 project. XD

  17. Is there a specific version that this fix works with and will it work with multiple worlds?
    Thanks in advance :)
  18. Not that I am aware.
  19. EssentialsX GroupManager is solution...
