Detailed guide

Minecraft offers unlimited possibilities, including cooperative play. Surviving or being creative is much more interesting in co-op with friends. There are several ways to get together in cooperative mode:

  1. Play with friends on the same server.
  2. Organize a joint game through a local network.
  3. Play Minecraft together with Hamachi.

There is also an option to create your own dedicated server, but we will consider this possibility in a separate guide.

How to play with a friend on the same server?

This is the easiest way, as the only requirement is that you and your friends have the same version of Minecraft. You can choose either a "clean" server, on which the game takes place practically unchanged, or a thematic version. For example, you and your friends can find yourself in the midst of a zombie apocalypse or take part in a full-fledged "royal battle".

First you need to select one server and copy its address, then start Minecraft and select the "Multiplayer" item in the main menu.

You will see a list of available servers. The best option would be to manually enter the address, this will ensure that you and your friends are exactly on the same server. To do this, click the "By address" button and in the window that opens, paste the previously copied server address.

After a short connection procedure, you will be taken to the start screen. To start the game, you will need to set a password for your account. To do this, you need to call the chat window in the game (the English letter "T" on the keyboard) and write "/ reg (your password)". Remember this password in order to continue playing on the server without any problems.

Most likely, you and your friend will meet in the spawn location. Coordinate your actions using chat or voice communication so as not to get lost when crossing to other territories.

How do I play Minecraft over a LAN?

If you are in the same room with a friend, then you can play Minecraft together even without an Internet connection. You can connect two computers directly with an Ethernet cable or connect them to the same Wi-Fi network.

To play on a local network, you need an exact match between the versions of the game and all installed mods for all participants in the multiplayer.

When connecting with a cable, you will need to set the correct IP addresses. First go to the Control Panel. The easiest way to get there is to follow this sequence of actions:

  1. Press Windows + R on the keyboard.
  2. In the window that opens, enter control.

Going to the panel, select the "Network and Sharing Center" there.

In the window that opens, you need to click "Change adapter parameters" in the left column.

In the window that opens, right-click on the Ethernet connection icon and select Properties from the drop-down menu. The settings menu will open, in which you will need to select the "IP version 4 (TCP / IPv4)" item.

In the settings window that opens, you need to register the following parameters:

  • IP address - 168.0.1;
  • Subnet mask - 255.255.255.0;
  • Default gateway - IP version 4 (TCP / IPv4);

Other players should follow the same steps. Their IP address must be in the format 192.168.0.X, where X is any number between 2 and 255.

When connecting to a Wi-Fi network, it is better not to set the IP address manually, but to look through the console. To do this, you need to perform the following actions:

  1. Press Windows + R on the keyboard.
  2. In the window that opens, enter cmd
  3. A command prompt appears where you must enter the ipconfig command.

A list of parameters will appear, in which you will need to find the block with the description of the wireless network adapter. Rewrite it to IP version 4 (TCP / IPv4).

Knowing your IP address on the local network, you can start creating an open world. First, create a standard Minecraft game. After that, press Esc and select "Open for the network".

This will allow other players to join you on the map. In the lower left part of the screen, there will be an inscription "Port of the local server XXXXX", where instead of X there will be a random number. Write it down and tell other players.

To join your world, the rest of the participants must follow these steps:

  1. Select the item "Network game" in the main menu;
  2. Press the button "By address";
  3. In the window that opens, enter your IP and port number separated by a colon. For example, 192.168.0.1:56234.

Joint play in Minecraft through Hamachi

The Hamachi app allows you to create a virtual local area network with users anywhere in the world. Therefore, a joint game in Minecraft using this program will take place in almost the same way as in a regular LAN.

The main differences are the need to install Hamachi for all players and register in the system. This is very easy to do, just download the free application and follow the instructions. After installation, you will need to create a network, having come up with a unique name and password for it.

After creating a network, up to 5 people can connect to it (in the free version). To do this, you need to tell them the name and password from the network.

As with the standard LAN game, which is described in the previous section, you need to create a world in Minecraft and make it open. When you create it, you will find out the port number that you need to match with the IP from Hamachi. You can get an IP by right-clicking on it in the application window.

As a result, you get something like this server address: 25.67.216.179:12345. It should be entered by your friends by going to the "Multiplayer" section and clicking the "To address" button.

You can play Minecraft not only in the single-player world, interacting exclusively with the villagers – there are different methods to create a local or network server in order to generate a new world and start exploring it with your friends.

I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the different ways to create a Minecraft server for playing with friends over the network.

Option 1: Opening a Solo World for LAN Play

If your computers and your friend are connected to the same local network or at least connected to one wireless access point, you can use the simplest option open a single world for LAN play. To do this, you need to follow a couple of simple steps.

Editing a local server for online play in Minecraft

  1. Log into the game and create a new single player world with optimal settings.
  2. Click on Esc for a menu to appear, in which you need to select "Open for the web" .
  3. A notification will appear with the port assigned to the server, which you need to remember.
  4. Now go to your desktop, start the command line and type in it ipconfig to determine your IPv4 address.
  5. The rest of the players must use a direct connection by entering your IP address and the assigned port. For instance: 192.168.0.1:25565 .

The disadvantage of this method is that it does not always work correctly due to incorrect network settings or problems in the organization of the local network. If you do not know how to solve the errors that appear on your own, it is better to move on to one of the following options.

Option 2: Create a dedicated local Minecraft server

This option is also suitable when you and your friend are within the same apartment and are connected to the local network using a LAN cable or Wi-Fi. If you have not yet organized such a connection, be sure to make it, and then on all computers proceed with the general setup of the operating system required to connect to the future server.

  1. Find the button with a network connection on the taskbar, right-click on it and select the item "Open Network & Internet Settings" .Go to configuring adapter parameters for configuring local Minecraft server
  2. A new window will appear "Parameters" where in the block "Additional network parameters" click on the line "Configuring adapter parameters" .Opening the list of adapters for configuring a local Minecraft server
  3. Right-click again on the adapter that is currently connected to the Internet, and then select "Properties" .Go to adapter properties to configure local Minecraft server
  4. The window for setting the properties of the network adapter will appear, in which you need to double-click on IP version 4 after making sure that there is a check mark next to this parameter. Opening the IP address settings window to create a local Minecraft server
  5. Use the bullet points to manually obtain an IP address and proceed with the changes. Configuring a network adapter to further create a local Minecraft server

Set as IP 192.168.0.X , where instead of the last digit, insert any number up to 64. The subnet mask is specified as 255.255.255.255 ... Finally, send your computer to reboot. On other PCs, do the same, but change the last digit of the IP address to the unused one so that no conflicts arise when connecting.

The next step is to create a server for playing on a local network. In this case, the user has two different options. The first is more optimal, since it allows you to create a full-fledged server and then upgrade it with mods or change the settings at will. The files of an empty Minecraft server will need to be downloaded from any convenient site on the Internet by asking the search engine the corresponding request. After that, enter the directory and open the file with the settings through any text editor (file server.properties ).

Поиск и загрузка сервера для подключения по локальной сети в Minecraft

Next, edit a few lines to ensure a smooth connection. Find first server-ip = X and after the sign equally enter the IP of the computer that acts as the main one (the IP address that was created in the previous step). In line server-port = N fits the port, usually it is 25565 ... It remains to start the server through the file present in the directory start.bat

Option 3: Setting up a network connection through Hamachi

Hamachi the most popular program for organizing virtual networks. It can be used by gamers to create one network to play together with friends who are outside the local network or cannot connect to it for other reasons. Every user should download Hamachi from the official website and create an account.

Настройка Хамачи для игры по сети в Minecraft с друзьями

Now the user who wants to create a server in the program itself clicks "Create a new network" and sets the name / password. According to this data, friends are looking for the network by clicking on the button "Connect to an existing network" to Hamachi. After all users are connected, you can configure your server by entering the received IP address during a direct connection or by changing it in the Minecraft server settings as shown in the instructions for setting up a dedicated local connection.

Option 4: Using Public Servers or Realms

There are public Minecraft servers that can be played by a huge number of people at the same time. Nothing will prevent you and your friend from finding the same server, connecting to it, registering and finding each other for further play. Keep in mind that some servers are available only for licensed versions of Minecraft, while others work with pirated ones.

Another option purchase Realms on the official site those ... With a monthly subscription, you have the opportunity to organize a server and connect up to ten players to it. Click on the dedicated link to see the benefits of this subscription and decide if you need it with your friends.
