So recently I've wanted to start learning how to use packets and most people would agree to start with Protocol Lib but unfortunately when I started going through the tutorial and created the plugin and tried it on my server none of the features worked. I've seen some threads that say it doesn't work with 1.8 of bukkit and some people used a different jar but it still doesn't work for me. I just put the two packetlisteners at the beginning of the tutorial in my on enable and the fake explosion inside a command. http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/protocollib/pages/tutorial/ This is the page I got it from. When I put it on my server along with protocolib in the plugins folder it didn't work and the fake explosion game me a null pointer error on the line : "PacketContainer fakeExplosion = protocolManager.createPacket(PacketType.Play.Server.EXPLOSION);" If there's a different approach I should take like just not using protocol lib and trying to figure out how to do it with just refraction please tell me. Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.
