Final Steps To Setting Up Your Crossplay Server

So once you have chosen the Crossplay template we have 2 small steps to do to get you playing on your new Crossplay server! All relevant plugins like Geyser and Floodgate have been added to your server meaning both editions can join on seamlessly. Now lets just update your port and your good to start playing.

Where Can I Locate My Port Number?

You can find this on your main multicraft dashboard just under the server IP.
were to find port for server

Step 1. From your multicraft dashboard take a note of your port number (eg 25575) then Go to:

Files > Config Files > Then look for the file called Geyser-Spigot/config.yml
geyser config 2

Step 2. Open the file and now we need to change 2 sections to the file to match your server port.

a) First section is toward the top of the config files, change the port number displayed here to suit your port number. so if its 25575 and your is 23456 simply replace the port number so it shows your server port. Just make sure to leave 1 space between the colon and the port number.

b) Now scroll down a few times and you will see the second area to add your port (underlined in the picture below) now replace this with your current servers port number.

Step 3. Now save the settings and restart or start your server. and thats it! Your ready to join.

Server Information

We use the latest Paper version of Minecraft due to its optimization. Upon new updates it can take up to 1 week to get the newest paper version and we will update it as soon as its made available to us. Meaning you dont need to do anything. You can also install a plugin called ViaVersion you can bridge the gab between updates as it allows newer versions to go on an older version server.

We are using the geyser and floodgate plugins found here. And we keep these up to date (once a week check) so your server should work seamlessly. If you ever have any problems with setup please contact us and we will be happy to help.

Plugins That Work On A CrossPlatform Server

You have many good plugins that work for server using geyser and floodgate to allow bedrock players on.

And many more, simply try them out and if your able to access the commands for the plugin as a bedrock player then the plugin has indeed worked.
