  3. I have a problem. When I'm joining 1.10 server with 1.9 client I'm kicked from the server and it writes me "Disconnected". In console there is an error "
    nick lost connection: Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.codec.EncoderException: java.lang.RuntimeException: An internal error occured.
    Console log when I start the server
    Code (Text):

    [13:49:59] [Server thread/INFO]: [ViaVersion] Loading ViaVersion v0.9.8
    [13:49:59] [Server thread/INFO]: [ViaVersion] ViaVersion 0.9.8 is now loaded, injecting!

  4. Can you set debug=true in server.properties and give me the full error after restarting the server?
  5. I am also kicked when I attempt to join my server on 1.9.
  6. Thanks for reporting, will create a fix when I'm back home

  7. @BaronOrg @love_geo_jasiu98 This was actually an issue in ViaVersion. I created a patch for it. You can use the devbuild on our buildserver until it's released on Spigot. (Direct download link)

  8. After uploading that version to my server I can join, however whenever a new block is sent to the client it disconnects them.
  9. I don't have this issue, could you give me some more information:

    • The exception from the console. (If there is none, enable debug=true in your server.properties)
    • The disconnect message
    • Minecraft version you used to login
    • what block did you try to place
    • What plugins do you use

  10. Ah, I'm not handling wrong metadata correctly, thanks for reporting :).
    Looks like you are using an outdated plugin that still sends 1.8-9 metadata. Make sure you update all of them.
  11. Alright. Will you be making it so that you do handle wrong metadata or not?
  12. Yes I will handle it that you don't get kicked because of ViaBackwards. But sending wrong metadata could also affect things client-sided, breaking stuff, crashing clients etc. I won't handle those things.

  13. Matsv updated ViaBackwards with a new update entry:

    v1.0.1 - Handle metadata errors

    Read the rest of this update entry...
  14. What is the benefit of this over protocolsupport?
  15. Lightweight, support for Spigot 1.10, Correct sounds, compatible with multiple server versions in the future due to the design of ViaVersion. Other than that not that much. I created this as a project for my server and shared it, since it might be useful for others.
  16. Awesome I might use it then. Thanks for contributing; more choice is always better.
