updated spigot -> downgraded -> broke

Discussion in 'Spigot Help' started by BladeIown, Jul 24, 2018.

  1. I updated my spigot to 1.13 and everything wasn't working so I decided to go back to 1.12.2 and wait a bit for everything to settle and then try again in a week or so when everything shouldn't be buggy. Upon going back to 1.12.2 I started the server and it began to not load giving me the following - I have no clue exactly what to do regarding this, all help is appreciated!

  2. In 1.13, the world is converted to a new format. Therefore downgrading will not work. Unfortunately you will either have to reset your worlds or load backups.

    I hope you saw the bold red text in the 1.13 announcement and made backups of your world before upgrading. If you didn't, it's all gone.
     
  4. I don't mean to sound rude, but I cant stop laughing at this. On the main post for 1.13pre-7 and 1.13 dev builds, there was like a WHOLE PAGE regarding how to upgrade to 1.13.... it was mentioned multiple times to BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP, it was also mentioned SEVERAL TIMES that once you upgrade a world to 1.13 it will not be able to downgrade to 1.12.2 ... long story short, if you didnt backup your stuff, you have lost it for good!

  5. Posts like this is why md_5 didn't include the build instructions.

    But you didn't read his post.

  6. The problem is... a lot of people skip past BuildTools and just download from YivesMirror.... it works, but then they dont get any warnings
