login problem - players kicked out with error

Discussion in 'Spigot Help' started by sarjentlank, Feb 24, 2020.

  1. Just started a new spigot server for my friends so we can use some plugins

    I moved my vanilla world to the server, including the world folder (with the other dimensions inside)

    Server starts fine, but when we try to join this error comes up and does not allow us to:

    Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.codec.EncoderException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Name cannot be empty

    Any ideas what might be causing the problem? Thanks
  2. What do you mean, with other dimensions inside?

    Also, this isnt a spigot issue.
    It could be a corrupt entity.

    Load the world in single player, remove all items from your players inventory, then load the world back into the server. That may help solve the issue. Not 100% sure on that however.

    Vanilla stores the nether and end as DIM folders in the main world folder.

  4. Thanks for reminding me lol.
    Spending too much time only looking at server files lol...
  5. have done, problem still persists. loads me into the world for like half a second then kicks me out. Idk why this is happening, since it's the same world from my vanilla server and theres no problem there.
  6. A weird question, but I assume the versions for the server and the singleplayer world are the same ?
    Also, why run spigot? I assume you plan to add plugins to the server.
