    I looked at now too, 60k+ is insane. What this means is that it's probably being found off of Google search results and people from all over the web have been seeing this post.
     
  5. Being the top result on a google search of "how to add a server icon" might help as well :p

  7. I've added the server-icon.png (Which is 64x64) to my /jar folder on my bungee server but it doesn't seem to want to display.
    EDIT - Double checked to make sure it was 64x64 and it was. So I saved it again with file - save - web in photoshop and selected PNG-24, uploaded it then restarted the server. still nothing.

  8. Multicraft? Heh.


    Try putting it in the root of your folder. I believe multicraft uses launh flags to change the launch location.

  10. :D YEah multicraft :p So put in it in /? will do and report back.

    EDIT - Yep that solved it, thanks so much @frash23
     
  11. Great tutorial, mate.

    Only thing I see the problem with is some may get confused on which folder to drop it in.
     
  12. Actually, it's not at all obvious. I just spent an hour figuring this out. Since you don't have to enable any config options etc and it's just "drop it in the server root" it's easy to assume it updates dynamically and is checked automatically every time user refreshes their server list. But apparently it is not and you DO have to restart the server. At first I thought I'm having some kind of problem with the server not recognizing the png format / bit depth, size or some such. All it needed was a restart...
     
  13. Very nice guy, thanks very much 10/10
     
  14. server-icon.png -> server folder.
    Restart the server.
    Done.

    No. But you can animate the image by sending a constant stream of data.

    On ping, continue sending data, but never send the server version. That way, the client will always presume there is more data needed.
