    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.

    It's a good plugin, does what it says it does. and doesn't require any additional configurations. I don't care much for 1.13 as I just want this for a skygrid server. which can run on 1.12 just fine.

    This is a great plugin, ignore all those kiddies giving 1-star reviews thinking this is a problem with this plugin when they haven't even set their EULA to true. Also, just because a plugin is still not updated but works great on older versions, it doesn't mean it deserves a 1-star. Stop shouting at the developers and giving them bad reviews, hoping they update. This is a resourceful but free plugin, and the developers are not slaves. They are temporarily inactive due to a lack of time, read the page. It's not like they have to update a free plugin on their work hours.

    Version: 2.3.1
    I think people rate it badly because it's an important plugin in the comunity, and haven't seen an update in more than a year, despite a new major release of minecraft being out for 4 months.
