Minecord Wiki: Requirements & Installation

In order to run properly the plugin and the voice chat system the following items are required:
  • Java 8 (Installed in the same machine/PC that the server).
  • A Spigot/Bukkit Minecraft server with Internet connection. (Any compatible version).
  • A Discord server (and a Discord account). Create one at https://discordapp.com/.
  • All the necessary modules & dependencies. (All modules and dependencies are listed in the main page of this resource, please make sure you can download those labeled as "necessary").

These steps must be followed carefully in order to install correctly the plugin and have the best experience possible:
  1. Firstly, make sure that you have a Discord server and a Discord account. In your account enable the advanced developers settings. (Settings > Appearance > Developer Mode).
  2. Install the required necessary modules & dependencies. You must download them from the main page of this resource. If you want to include also any other optional module or dependency you have to do it now as per instructions from its documentation pages.
  3. Drop the .jar file delivered in the download in the plugins’ directory of your server files. When you start the server the plugin will automatically disable saying that the ‘token’ field is required in the config file to proceed.
  4. Create a Discord bot through the developer section of the web: https://discordapp.com/developers/applications/. Click the ‘Create an application’ button and fill the form as shown in the picture. It is recommended to put the bot the following name: ‘md-%yourserver%’ (change %yourserver% to your Minecraft server name).
  5. Check the token of your bot in the ‘Bot’ section of the same webpage. You have to click previously the ‘Add Bot’ button and confirm (in this step put the same image and name than before). Copy that token and paste it in your Minecord config file.
  6. Paste the ID of you server in the appropiated config field by doing left click to your server’s name and clicking the button ‘Copy ID’. Then, create a new voice channel in your Discord server, and make sure that everybody may join the channel. Copy its ID by doing left click to the channel and click the button ‘Copy ID’, then paste it in the config.
  7. Invite the new Discord bot to your Discord server by going to the ‘OAuth2’ section of the webpage. Generate a new link as shown in the picture and click it, then, confirm the action. In your Discord server give the bot a role with the ‘Administrator’ permission. This role must be the higher in the hierarchy, even more than the owner’s administrator’s or other bot’s ranks.
  8. You may now restart the server. If a message confirming the bot connection is sent, the installation has been processed correctly. Otherwise, please check again all the steps or if you think you need further assistance, please, ask for support as per instructions from the main page of the resource.
