    Adds 1.12, 1.11.*, 1.10.*, 1.9.*, 1.8.*, 1.7.*, 1.6.*, 1.5.*, 1.4.7 clients support to your spigot 1.12.2 server

    I'm only supporting latest protocolsupport dev build. Also use github issues to post issues, i'm not reading forum posts most of the time.

    Installation notice:
    If you have problems with suddenly all players disconnecting and server stops working, set use-native-transport in to false

    Usage notice:
    Do not attempt no load/unload this plugin dynamicly, it won't work. And that will never work. /reload command is blocked to prevent this plugin accidental reload.

    Can you please update this plugin and add version 1.13? I'm using this plugin for my server and it works perfect, but some blocks are not the same, If I place a end rod in 1.12.2 and see it in 1.8 it is glowstone
    Can you fix this bug too?
    If this 2 bugs is fixed, it will be very good.

    Very nice resource. Makes my life a lot easier when testing my anticheats (since the only clients with good bypasses out there are on 1.8).

    Protocol Support is one of the best Protocol plugins that allow older minecraft versions to connect to my server . I've tried Viaversion and their plugins but those are terrible and very unreliable I never had any success with those. ProtocolSupport is far superior and the developer is constantly working on new developer builds all the time. If you want the latest version please get from and not here otherwise you will be downloading old outdated version.

    How to reload server without crashes?
    Server version: 1.11.2;

    Is it only on 1.11.2, because I can up(down)grade it in diapason of 1.10 - 1.12;

    Poor support. Dev barely fixes issues. Riddled with glitches, and only ever supports the latest version.

    Asked for armour stands to at least not be invisible and was told it wasn't possible.

    Use ViaRewind instead, it's much better. Very stable and has a way to backport nearly everything, even Elytra flight. Yes, armour stands work here, as well.
    Oh, and cross-version support allows 1.8 servers to give 1.7 support.

    This plugin is excellent as it does what was previously thought impossible! Must have for any server as it frees your players from having to play on a specific version just for your server!

    CI is down and can not download. Please fix this and I will update / delete my rating.

    i know it can be good but, you need an old version for 1.7 support to 1.8. and i cant find it so 4 stars from me

    Version: 4.28
    well... i can't really use it because of that reload block feature because my server "requires" a reload on starting
