ControlSend() issue with Minecraft Server Console - (Locked)


Recommended Posts

The issue:

I wrote a script, that uses ControlSend() for stopping the server and sometimes announce the next server restart.

So far everything works fine, except that when I leave the remote desktop connection to my server, then the strings are not case-sensitive anymore. For the commands, that does not matter too much, as it send 7 instead of / and in the MC Console you can run commands without slash, so I just removed those.

As for the messages though:
NEXT SERVER RESTART AT 06:30 CEST
becomes
next server restart at 06.30 cest

 

I searched a lot about this particular issue, but have found no solution so far. I am kinda like an advanced beginner, I have some roots in scripting/programming, but I never followed that path enough, to become advanced in it. Recently I found AutoIt and fell in love with its simplicity and that it just works for simple things, which it does for me. (almost ;D)

Any tiny bit could help me create this reliable script, which I would want to post somewhere for fellow Crafters around the world, so that they can use this for themselves.

 

Thanks for any help in advance and here is my script:

Pls dont judge my beginner skills 😅

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked.

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.

@badcoder123 Maybe take some time to read the forum rules yourself before responding in the future.
