Pixelmon 1.8.9 - 4.2.7 SpongeAPI is not working and no plugins are working. Please, help!

Hello! Me and a few friends were interested in started our own Minecraft server so we went to one of the many hosting services, ours being Minecraftserverhost.net and we payed for them to create the server with Pixelmon(4.2.7 for MC 1.8.9.) pre-installed. This is what our file config looks like at the time of the server being created.

… and the mods folder.

I was under the impression that it was a simple install. I simply downloaded Spongeforge and installed it directly into the mods folder, which now looks like this…

However, when I try to start the server, it simply fails to start. I’ve also tried the same process again, but instead with the latest version of SpongeAPI and the server would start, but none of the plugins would work so I’m under the assumption that it was no loaded correctly. I’ve very new to this and our main goal is to just have a MC-Pixelmon server for a few friends and myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We’ve seen other servers running our same version of Pixelmon and Minecraft and they claim to use Sponge for their plugins, and it’s really confusing to us as we’re not too experienced with Sponge.

You have copied SpongeForge correctly into the mods folder, Do not copy SpongeAPI into the mods folder, it will not help.

After copying SpongeForge into mods and running, you say the server doesn’t start, Do you have log files or console output to say what was going wrong?

Also worth checking is that the forge version matches the forge version in SpongeForge,
The format of the filename is spongeforge-{MCVersion}-{ForgeVersion}-{SpongeAPIVersion}-{SpongeBuildId}

So ideally for SpongeForge-1.8.9-1890 You should be running Minecraft 1.8.9, which you are, and Forge 1890 Which I can’t tell from the screenshots.

This is what I get when I attempt to start the server after putting Spongeforge-1.8.9-1890 into the Mods folder.

You said something about installing FORGE? I’m guessing FORGE has to be on the server before Spongeforge works properly, but my question is how can I install forge onto my server through the Control panel (Which is mPanel)? Is it just a simple copy and past as well?

Nope, it’s not simple copy and paste. If Pixelmon is already working, then Forge must already be installed. Pixelmon won’t run without Forge.

Also:

  • Can you tell us which Java version the server is using? The minimum required version for SpongeForge is Java 8 Update 40.
  • Can you tell us which Forge version you’re using?

It says that the server is using Java 1.8.0_91 from the Control Panel. I think that might be what you’re looking for, but I’m not too sure. The version of Forge that I tried installing into the server was the 1.8.9 version but I did that by installing these files…

…directly into the Minecraft folder in my server files (This is before I knew that the server already had to have forge installed and if that’s the case, I don’t know version was preinstalled into the server).

1.8.0_91 was exactly was i was looking for. Thats Java 8 update 91, so everythings alright. At least Java wise…

So, when I try to install the Spongeforge into the mods folder, the server will just not start. It won’t give me any errors or anything… but it just won’t start. I’m just really confused as what to do now. Would you like more pictures of how my config files look?

Is that it? Is there anyway I can tell what version of forge I’m running. Here:

This is what the server files look like after I’ve done everything and the inside of the mods folder is merely this.

You’re running Forge version *.1902 for Minecaft 1.8.9.
The SpongeForge build you’re using requires *.1890, so it should work since your version of Forge is newer than the one your SpongeForge version requires.
You should really provide us the log file so we can help you properly. (that is logs/fml-server-latest.log)

Hm looks like Forge doesn’t even find the sponge file or doesn’t consider it to be a proper Forge mod.
You did have the spongforge jar in the mods folder on that startup right?

Yes, I did. It looks like this afterward.

You could try removing pixelmon and check if sponge loads then.
If yes, it must be some kind of conflict between the two.
If no, you could try installing Forge version *.1890 and see if that works.

Post the full fml-server-latest.log found in the logs folder so we can see exactly what’s going on.

I noticed this when reading the log posted above:

23:19:41] [Server thread/DEBUG] [FML/]: mcp (Minecraft Coder Pack 9.19) minecraft.jar
[23:19:41] [Server thread/DEBUG] [FML/]: FML (Forge Mod Loader 8.0.99.99) pixelmon.jar

[23:19:41] [Server thread/INFO] [FML/]: Processing ObjectHolder annotations

Are you sure that you’re actually starting the right Forge *.jar file? Common practice is that you can select different jars in your server panel.

That’s not guaranteed. In order to be sure, they should match . Non matching versions may work occasionally, and if a newer version of Forge isn’t working that is a good reason to report a bug, so that SpongeForge can be updated, but if you want it to just work, the easiest thing to do is to make sure that the versions match.

Tzk, I think you have hit the nail on the head, I believe the launch script they are using is still referencing the old version of forge, and not the version uploaded by the user.
