    So over the past 2-ish weeks on Minelink I've been asked increasingly more;

    What is console client?
    How do I get it?
    How do I make an alt script?

    I'm not aware of there being any guide on this forum independently so here goes;
    ConsoleClient is used to connect to any minecraft server allowing for you to send commands, messages and more without actually opening a Minecraft Client
    It is favored by many people as it only uses 10Mb of RAM when running and has virtually no effect on your PC compared to an actual client, thus meaning you can run multiple clients for your faction.
    This post will be a more or less basic tutorial on how to download and install the client, how to use it and creation of basic scripts for people who wish to afk spawners and relog alts. If you have experience with console client this will be irrelevant to you, so don't feel the need to hate.

    Downloading Console Client
    For the past 2/3 months most of the community been using an edited version of console client changed by Sudzzy to work specifically on Origin. It has all the sufficient features and can be downloaded here;
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/38lt7y1byv403nc/Console Client.zip?dl=0
    Once you have downloaded the client from this link, you should extract the folder to be left with something looking like this

    If you just wish to login from this stage, you open up the MinecraftClient Application, and enter your Username and Passsword as if you were logging on to an actual client.

    How to create a logging alts script
    This script can be very useful in logging mass accounts to ensure your buffer faction alts do not get kicked for inactivity.
    To begin with, open notepad and enter all your alt account details in this form
    [​IMG]
    Make sure to save this file as 'accounts.txt' and place it in your ConsoleClient folder. For each account, start a new line with the next number and follow the same format

    Next, open another notepad to create a 'servers.txt'. This can have as many or few servers as you like or wish to connect to. Format: (Name),(IP)
    [​IMG]


    Once you have both of these new .txt files in your ConsoleClient folder, you can create the script. This script, inevitably, will be called script.txt and placed in the ConsoleClient folder.
    [​IMG]
    To explain this script above
    connect server2 1 - This is telling the client to connect to the 'Server2' in your servers.txt and Connect with account '1' in your accounts.txt
    wait 10 - This is leaving a 10 second gap between each account to ensure mojang doesn't time you out. This can most likely be shortened by I just stay on the safe side
    send logging alts - The 'send' message can be used to get your alts to type commands. Mine says 'logging alts' ingame so that I can run this script in the background and watch each one log on. You could use this to change server i.e send /server red
    Make sure to follow the correct spacing and format exactly or it won't work

    Now you have done all the script work for it, you can log on to Console Client on 1 account and type /script script to initiate the beginning of your script - This will run through your script until completion.
    Example:


    Auto-Reconnect and Auto-relog for afking spawners
    So during the day on the server, you may have to leave for school/work. This means you can't be around to reconnect your console client once it gets kicked to hub or off the server at a restart.

    So firstly, go back to your ConsoleClient folder and open up
    [​IMG]

    Which should take you to something like this:
    [​IMG]

    From here, you need to scroll down to here and copy exactly what I have put
    [​IMG]
    This is setup to AutoReconnect to blue (So change to /server red if needed)
    You may also need to create a kickmessages.txt if you don't already have one. I suggest copying all of these messages into it:
    Connection has been lost
    Server is restarting
    Server is full
    too many people
    Disconnected by server:
    kicked
    afk
    Server is shutting down!
    You have been kicked for idling for more than 15 minutes.
    Server is restarting! Come back in 1 minute

    Once you have done this, your alts will be automatically logging on the server after being disconnected to hub to ensure you have maximum ontime on your spawners etc.

    So now you should be able to do all I listed at the beginning, I hope this helps and can be used. There are also other ways of running an alt script to relog accounts, and I can show how to use the batch file method which logs multiple accounts open in different Console Client windows at 1 time if needed!

    (pls tell me if I made a mistake, thanks)

    I would be careful what you do with this if it includes scripting and such. Too much automation may get you into some trouble but I don't know. On another note... I bet RXIAH owns the accounts Player1, Player2, Player3!! Prepare to get insided!! haha <3

    This isn't automation, it's just a more efficient way to have several MCs open at the same time

    Looking into it, its very capable of automation. You can send commands to your "bots" via /msg and such as well as run scripts for your characters to execute while you're not at your computer. To be fair, saying it's not automation is far from true. Now you may not use it for that purpose, and I understand that this guide is not saying you should at all, but it is capable of doing just that.
