I’m new to Minecraft and java but not to programming. I am having trouble with page 35 “connect from a local Minecraft client”. Exactly how do you do that? Is there a program that is need? Is it a java jar? Is a linux version available? Do you have to purchase an account?
I got to this page in the book with the server started. I downloaded a Minecraft jar, Started it an logged in but I do not get the single player/multiplayer buttons. Just a demo/reset demo button.
It seem that there is a lot of assumption about your audiences being knowledgeable about Minecraft.
