How to disable the games? Spark 2.9.0 Thanks!
You can disable the plugins for each game by going through the File > Plugins menu, then select the plugin and remove it using the delete button.
Alternatively, you can remove the corresponding jar file from the
.Spark/plugins/ folder in your user directory.
Another way to do it (especially on a larger scale) is to append such line in user’s spark.properties file:
This way you can disable not just games, but other plugins as well. You can maybe append this line with a script for all the users or add this line to a template profile file for the new users, so they have it disabled from the start.
I’m trying to disable these games on a large scale. Now i’m trying to update the spark properties file with deactivatedPlugins=Reversi,TicTacToe but when i save then i login back to Spark the change disappear from spark properties file. Changes wont save. Any ideas?
I disable plugins in spark-core-2.9.3.jar in default.properties
# default is empty
PLUGIN_BLACKLIST = reversi, tictactoe
and after that edit spark.properties in appdata:
it’s work for me
Are you sure you are editing spark.properties file when Spark is completely turned off? If Spark is running, it will reset your changes to this file.
I was logged out from Spark but indeed it was still running. I did exited Spark, updated the file and it worked.
Is there a way to block the games server-side?
Take a look at Client Control plugin for Openfire
