We all know how unstable the Minecraft.net authentication server has been lately, right?

WoM is proud to announce the availability of it's WoM Game Client 1.6.3, with Direct Connect URLs.

What's a Direct Connect URL?

A Direct Connect URL is a server link which bypasses the Minecraft.net authentication servers, allowing you to directly connect with a server.

View the rest of the article for more.

To do this, the server needs to issue a Direct Connect URL, which looks something like:

mc://123.234.34.45:25565/username/c0a1433eca514e285f667356b2bde709

When you launch the client, simply input the Direct Connect URL into your client (instead of signing in) and press "Go".

WoM: Realms already supports the Direct Connect URLs and you can get the connection URLs from your user list page when you are signed in to the WoMRealms.com website.

kool!

im already using this. very helpful and takes less time to get to server.  thanks triddin :)

and for those ppl who need a little extra help to figure out the link for the connect its at the womrealms.com website as stated above but when u login into your account, it will show your minecraft name, then your rank, then it says direct connect.  Well what you do is put your mouse over the link and right click it, then just paste that link into the direct connect bar on the client.  reminder you need the WoM client version 1.6.3 for this to work :)
Any questions please post a post  in the support forums... Plz Plz PLZ! do not send us a pm stating you need help. Thank you!
Have a nice day :)

How to generate a Direct Connect URL.

All you need is for the server owner to generate a link for you.

The link looks like:

mc://servername:port/username/mppass

The mppass is something that only the server owner and minecraft.net can generate for you, it's made by doing an MD5 sum of the server salt and your username.

Here's some php code which will do it:

<?php
$host = '123.234.132.21';
$port = 25535;
$user = 'aUserName';
$salt = '19bba91e5339384d9a8e2233a38c79c5';
printf("mc://%s:%d/%s/%s\n", $host, $port, $user, md5($user . $salt));
?>

Obviously the server owner will have to edit the code so that the 4 variables (host, port, user and salt) are all set correctly, and to verify that they are only giving out the code to the correct person, but once that is done, they will be able to issue Direct Connect URLs for their server.

You guy aren't following the simple instructions...

First of all when u log onto the womrealms.com you have to log into ur account, the when it says direct connect put ur mouse over it and copy the url by right clicking.  then when you open up the new client where it says mc:// paste the link.  You should be taken to the server right away.

Got any questions? Look through the support page or create a thread in the Support forums here

For WomRealm only?

This direct link thing is a great idea, I would love to use it for my server. Is it reserver for WOMRealm servers only? If not, I don't have a problem running the php code, I just need to know how to find my salt. I am running MVforge. Thanks

I agree!

I would in fact enjoy the benefit of Reload AND Switch. Especially if the server has connection issues or for some reason it takes you to singleplayer, you can just switch instead of having to restart it (yes I am very lazy).

AfterLifeLochie, my friend

AfterLifeLochie, my friend and co-owner of the Krylus Freebuild what-ever-it's-called server, says that the new system is a security hazard by letting people log in as other people. I've re-read the post and I don't think it would be. Could you confirm that there's no risk so we can reinstate all our admins?

EDIT: Holy crap I've got tons of internets since the last time I came here. Also, I agree, we need better jumping and the reload button.

I'M OP IN 11 SERVERS!!! YAY!!!

WoM doesn't seem to be able to connect to the list..

From what happened to me I think Notch updated or something. because The server list (in WoM) Won't Load. but the direct connect will?

I'll just wait this out :P any response to my glitch post?

Hello there

It's come to my attention that you are being ignorant on the internet. While that may be tolerable on websites such as this one, it can be considered offensive. If you were to have taken a casual glance to the right and take note of the forums, you would see that this is a common problem and probably would have figured out that this was caused by minecraft.net updating the servers to crash less often. This problem will probably be sorted out withing a few days.

tl;dr
Don't be an ass on the internet.

Herpus derpus.

huh?

To get a code, you need to launch minecraft and sign in to the WoM: Realms server.
what does that mean?

ive downloaded it 3 times and it still pops up with the same msg
"error connecting to the server list"
then it gives me 3 choices quit, retry(which never works so why have it there) and cached. i choose cached and it loads 'a' list and then i try to find my server and what do u know its not there so i join a different server and it comes up with something about java.nul.lang or something. so wth is up with all this. so now i cant even get onto my OWN server. also anyideas why it doesnt pop up in the server list? i want some answer as to why this is now screwed up and im no computer nerd so dont tell me to do this direct connect thing cos i have no idea what it is and how it works.

Update to 1.6.4

Ok guys,

Basically this recent issue was due to minecraft.net updating how the website works.

The client has been updated accordingly and now will operate correctly with the new authentication servers over at minecraft.net.

Please download the new 1.6.4 version and that should be the end of the 502 errors.. 503 and 504 may still happen from time to time, however I believe that the changes that have been made at minecraft.net which have triggered these 502 errors were designed to reduce the overall occurrence of all errors. So fingers crossed!
