FAQ

Do you 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 Velocity/Bungee?
Yes, you can also use both ViaBackwards and ViaVersion with Velocity. For BungeeCord, you need https://hangar.papermc.io/ViaVersion/ViaBungee

Clients with versions lower than 1.17 can't see blocks under y=0, will that ever be fixed?
No.

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 server; by making it inside ViaVersion, people will expect us to also create full backwards compatibility in the future.
