How to: download Minecraft (free) and play on the server!
« on: August 07, 2019, 08:49:53 PM »
To get started with playing on the Littlewhitey's Minecraft server follow the steps below:

-- Minecraft Trailer --


Downloading and Installing

1) Download and install 'TCLauncher / Minecraft Launcher' - Click me to download!

(Please note that in order to run Minecraft you will need to install Java if you don't have it already - https://www.java.com/en/download/)

2) Launch the application and you will be asked to set language etc.
3) You will then see a screen similar to the following image:



4) Make sure that the latest version is selected and press "Enter the game" button. Afterwards, you will be prompted to create an account:



Click the green plus ( + ) icon and select Free w/o password as the account type. Enter the username you wish to use then press "Add Account".

5) Click the orange home icon and then click "Enter the game". Minecraft will begin to download and will eventually load.

Connecting to the Littlewhitey's Minecraft server:

1) From the main menu of Minecraft select "Multiplayer"
2) Click Add server and enter 'Littlewhitey's' as the server name and minecraft.littlewhiteys.com:25565 as the server address:


3) Double click to join and you will be loaded in.



When you first connect you will be prompted to register your account. This is just so that other people cannot use your nickname and gain access to your items.

To register open the chatbox with 't' and type /register <password> <password> (for example: /register ILoveCake ILoveCake)

Each time you reconnect to the server you will have to login with /login <password>.

If you have Minecraft on any of the following devices you can also join the server:

- Android
- iOS
- Windows 10 Mobile
- Xbox One
- PS4
- Nintendo Switch
- Kindle Fire and Fire TV
