how to play minecraft 3d multiplayer

minecraft 3d shareware v1.34 is an april fools version that changes the game to a 1994-like experience. mojang locks you out of multiplayer, and when you try to click the multiplayer button (modemplay) it won't work.

however, there is a very simple workaround for this.

downloading the version
  1. open the minecraft launcher.
  2. go to launch options > enable snapshots > add new and select snapshot 3d shareware v1.34. or, if you can't get the client, download it here.
  3. if you have downloaded the version from my site: extract the zip (select extract here) > cut the 3d shareware v1.34 folder > type %appdata% on the windows start menu > open .minecraft > go to versions > paste the folder in > choose the version from the launcher.
hosting a server
  1. make you sure you have port-forwarded port 25565 (or configure a differnt portforwarded port in server.properties once you get the server running).
  2. click the download server link next to the dropdown menu for versions, or download the server here.
  3. open the server and let it initialize.
  4. open eula.txt and change false to true.
joining a server
  1. open the game.
  2. join a world.
  3. pause the game and click open to lan. set allow cheats to on and click start lan world.

  4. in the chat, type /kick username (change username to your minecraft username)

  5. once you have been kicked, click back to server list.

congrats, you have now successfully opened the multiplayer server list. get a ip for a running 3d shareware v1.34 server and play with other people!
