You can make your Minecraft game server launch automatically by creating a simple command file. Follow these OS-specific instructions.WINDOWS:
To create a batch file for setting up a Minecraft server, you can use the following steps:
- Open a text editor, such as Notepad, and create a new file.
- Type the following command into the file: "java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui" (without the quotes). This command tells the server to use 1GB of RAM and launches the server using the minecraft_server.jar file without the GUI.
- Save the file with the extension .bat, for example "start_server.bat"
- Place the .bat file in the same directory as the minecraft_server.jar file.
On Mac, use shell scripts to execute commands. Go to the Minecraft Server folder, create a new text file, and name it "start.sh". Enter this command:
cd "$(dirname "$0")"
exec java -Xms1G -Xmx1G -jar server.jar
Save the file and open Terminal. Change directory to the folder and run:
chmod a+x start.sh to make "start.sh" executable.
Double-click "start.sh" to start a minecraft server automatically.
Agree to the EULA. To agree to the Minecraft End User License Agreement (EULA), which will allow you to run the server, you must edit the eula.txt file.
- Open the eula.txt file by double-clicking it.
- Review the EULA by reading it in the file or by copying and pasting the text.
- Change the line "eula=false" to "eula=true" to indicate your agreement to the terms.
