    This plugin is an addon for ViaVersion (and ViaBackwards). It allows 1.7.x and 1.8.x to connect to your 1.8-1.12.2 server.


    This plugin requires to have ViaVersion and ViaBackwards (for 1.10+ servers). Just put all three plugins in your plugins folder and you are done. Also make sure you have Java 8 installed.

    Supported Versions:

    Known issues:
    • Boats and Horses won't work for 1.7.x and 1.8.x clients on 1.9+ servers. This issue can not be fixed without editing the server source code.
    • Although this is not an issue with ViaRewind. If your 1.7.x client crashes, when trying to connect to the server: Check if your clientside view distance is not too high. If you have set your view distance to something higher than 1.7.x allows while playing 1.8 or newer, your 1.7.x client will crash (even if you join singleplayer). Please check this, before you ask for help.

      Reviews are not for support. This plugins supports 1.14.x if you are using ViaBackwards development builds.
      Thanks for the 5 stars.

    Plugin works good but there is some bugs.
    1) 1.7 players can't see absorption hearts.
    2) 1.7 player's can't see fire effect when they're burning.
    I told these bugs to developer from discord 10 months ago still there is no fix.

      The plugin works on a 1.12.2 server. If you have an issue, you should ask for support first.

      ViaRewind is technically already compatible with 1.13.x. But ViaBackwards isn‘t updated yet. Mats is working on it, but his time is currently very limited.
