    Supported versions:



    Please support 1.8 and lower?
    No, use ViaRewind or ProtocolSupport if you want backwards compatibility for 1.8 and lower.

    Can I use this with BungeeCord?
    Yes, you can also use both ViaBackwards and ViaVersion with BungeeCord.

    How can I report issues and bugs?
    You can report bugs on the GitHub issue tracker. You can also use the Discussion section from the resource or send me a private message.

    Why did you not implement this inside ViaVersion?
    The aim of ViaVersion is to allow a newer Minecraft client on an older Spigot server, by making it inside ViaVersion, people will expect us to also create backwards compatibility in the future. I mainly created this for my own server, I don't know if I'll support backwards compatibility for newer versions in the future.

    Can I donate?
    You can use the donate button from Paypal or bitcoins above to donate to this project :)

    I can't use this plugin because I have Java 7 or lower
    Please update to Java 8 or contact your host to update.

    Better than ProtocolSupport if you're looking for 1.9 compatibility, and ViaRewind if you want down to 1.7.
    Nearly flawless. Since I'm giving a good review, might as well report a tiny issue...
    On older versions, trapdoors, slabs, etc seem to always place on the lower half of the blocks, even if you look on the top half.

    This plugin is AMAZING! It is very much plug-and-play as it just works instantly. Everything works as it should AND smoothly! One issue is, and I know it is because it isn't supported. 1.8-1.8.9 .. Why not? I don't want to add ProtocolSupport as well as this plugin JUST for 1.8 to work, why won't you add support for 1.8?! Please add support?

      Please read the FAQ. You don't need ViaBackwards if you use ProtocolSupport.

    I have experienced no bugs with this compatibility plugin. Switched from Protocolsupport, and I am not going back.

      It’s ofcourse always better to keep your server up-to-date. But thanks!
