How to kill someone in Minecraft using the console
In the server console I tried
But I get
[INFO] You must specify which player you wish to perform this action on.
Is this even possible?
And... just checking, but you did put the actual player name instead of "? Have to ask.
IIRC you need to specify the player's current ID on the server. Type list to get it.
Make sure you're dropping the angle brackets as well. ie, "kill Keaanu" instead of "kill "
Is not a OP command but a player command to commit suicide so it can only apply to the one who use it. (Source)
But... if your server is running on Bukkit, you could install Essentials plugin and the you'll be able to use the command
and a lot of other useful stuff that every server moderator should have. But if you are not on bukkit or any modded server then why don't you
/tp <playername> <yourname>
so the player will be teleported to you and then just kill him :D
I prefer drinking a fire resist potion and going for a swim in lava before tp'ing someone to me. It really ups the fun factor.
/tphere is again an Essentials command, not present in vanilla Minecraft.
