Sponge and Multicraft issue

Hi so i’m planning on switching over my backup server to sponge to see how far we are from offcially moving to 1.8.
However i have run across a problem with Sponge and Multicraft, i think i installed everything as it should but i think i need a Multicraft .conf file in order for my server to find the library files.

Currently this is the setup.

so i need some conf file that would run my libraries inside my server i assume…
here’s the error i got from Multicraft
22.11 03:55:29 [Multicraft] Server stopped 22.11 03:55:29 [Multicraft] Looks like a crash, check the server console.

So if someone has an example .conf he uses(i think that’s the problem i assume) that would be splendid!
thanks in advance

You’re missing required files in the libraries/ directory.
You’re also using an outdated SpongeForge version.
Get the latest SpongeForge from spongeforge
and get Forge from http://files.minecraftforge.net/
Click the “Installer” download link, the installer is required to fetch the necessary files that go in libraries/
If you are using a remote machine, the installer can be ran from the command line
java -jar forge-1.8- -installServer

So i got passed the issue of the libraries, was my own stupid fault, but you were right also to update to a later version, thought it had to be very strict and follow what the recommend us.

Anyway i still have some issues, it did load alot but stopped and gave me these

Here’s the crash report

Hope you guys can help me out :), thanks in advance!!

Your Java version, 1.8.0_11 is old. You need to update it.
The latest java is 1.8.0_66 according to http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Thank you for the tip, this Sponge would at the moment be to just test and get plugins working etc, i do have a live server running on the same server, (Spigot) would this cause any issues with a newer version? Cause its not worth to me to test my beta server with a new version while my live server would have problems.

Updating java should not cause any problems. I recommend keeping java up to date all the time.

Ok thank you very much, it’s very late now so i’ll have to do it tomorrow, i will keep you posted if you saved my life :).

The server is online thank you alot simon :), i still need to find a way for multicraft to show it’s online, because currently it still shows it as offline. Must admit it looks very promising, you added some functionality of popular plugins already embedded in Sponge already which is great!
Also scrolling through /help pages is far better with the arrows, it’s the small things that count haha.
Is there somewhere i can donate in the future?

Yes, see https://www.spongefoundation.org/
