Re: 10 Person Minecraft Server? Is this possible?

I can give you tips to do those optimizations if you want. (I've been running a 5 person server with no lag) Very helpful topic. A few tips would be nice. #1. Instead of running a vanilla Minecraft server or Bukkit server. Use an optimized version called Spigot http://www.spigotmc.org/ #2. Install ...

Re: Can you turn a portable DVD player into a pi laptop?

You wont be able to interface with the screen. Most of those screens are either DSI or LDVS. There do exist HDMI > LDVS adaptors but they are rare and sometimes expensive and may not work correctly. Otherwise the pi does not have LDVS abilities. The pi does have a DSI connector, but DSI isnt proper...

Re: Can you turn a portable DVD player into a pi laptop?

Probably not since the DVD player board would contain the video circuit and the power for the back lighting for the screen. I'm sure it's possible but I very much doubt you're going to be able to simply plonk your Raspberry Pi inside a DVD player and remove the circuit board + DVD drive. Richard S....

Can you turn a portable DVD player into a pi laptop?

So I have a portable DVD player, it has a built in screen, and its quite thick.
I was wondering, is it possible to put the Pi inside, and connect the screen to the Pi?

Turning the Raspberry Pi into a Camera?

Hi. I was really impressed by the camera module you can buy for the Pi, and how amazing its quality is. So, I was thinking... Is it possible to mount a small screen onto the Pi and attach the camera to the Pi, and turn it into a fully functioning portable camera? Of course, it will need some sort of...

Re: 10 Person Minecraft Server? Is this possible?

It is definitely possible to make a server that can handle 10 people, especially if your willing to all say relatively close together in game and small view distance.

Re: 10 Person Minecraft Server? Is this possible?

If it doesnt matter what platform you want the server on you could pick up a cheap 1u server from ebay for 20 - 30 quid To be honest, i looked at a few, they look like a good deal, but i dont think I would have enough space for one of them in my home. Also there pretty old... I wouldnt expect them ...

Re: 10 Person Minecraft Server? Is this possible?

No as the Pi is a 700mhz processor it would struggle to get half a person (if that was possible) and to supply 10 people you would need a dual core 1.8 ghz processor and 100mb per person so I wouldn't even bother Not really. It is possible to do this, but there are some very HUGE optimisations that...

Re: 10 Person Minecraft Server? Is this possible?

That does not make any sense , because of the network overhead of a Pi cluster. This will destroy any speed advantage gained by clustering , furthermore even a multithreaded MC server won't work faster on a cluster magically. You will have to design your very own cluster MC server from scratch for ...

Re: 10 Person Minecraft Server? Is this possible?

You could always try using MCServer. It is written in C++ instead of java so it is far more lightweight. You will have to build it from source or find a pre-compiled binary from somewhere here on the forum. http://www.mc-server.org/ Would MC - Server support plugins? It seems to look really lightwe...

Give it a try! I've run the minecraft bukkit server (craftbukkit) on my model b with 2-3 players and it's been ok. Seems to be just a matter of gradually testing to see how many users you can push before you run into slowdowns. There are also a number of features in the config file for the server (...
