Today we will be opening up the server to test the new Minecraft version 1.13 snapshot. In this post, we are providing information on how to acquire the correct version for testing and how to create a bug report on any issues that you may find while testing.
Be warned that you may encounter several bugs while you are helping us test, that is the point of testing! We ask that you report the bugs on our Server Bug Report forums section as you come across them in testing, this will help the Hypixel Team bring the full Hypixel experience to 1.13.
▶ The Latest Minecraft Version
First, you need to have the latest version of Minecraft downloaded. To do so, go to the Minecraft launcher. You can download the Minecraft launcher here: https://minecraft.net/en-us/download/.
Open the Minecraft launcher and login to your Minecraft account. In the launcher, click the three horizontal bars in the top right corner to see "Launcher Options".
In your Launcher Options, click the grey box to enable snapshots.
Now go back to the "News" section of the launcher. There will be a green "Play" box at the bottom where you can see what version you are currently using. On the side of the Play button is an up arrow. Clicking on the arrow will give you a list of Minecraft versions.
Choose the "Latest snapshot - 1.13-pre9" to use the correct Minecraft version for testing. Now, click your Play button to download and start playing the latest version!
▶ Joining the Testing
Now the fun begins! You can join the testing by going to Multiplayer and Direct Connect.
