In this post, we will show you how to use our latest panel feature, the game switcher!
The game switcher allows you to swap out your server's egg with ease!
What is an Egg, and why do we use them?
An egg is basically a term we use for an object used to store the configuration of a specific type of game, for example:
With the ever expanding list of game servers we provide, it's necessary for us to have different configurations for different types of servers.
The terms egg and nest have been replaced with simpler terms in order to make using the Game Switcher easier and more intuitive!
If you have a dedicated IP, the game switcher has the option to overwrite some of your ports to the game's default ports, so for example 25565 for java minecraft, 19132 for bedrock minecraft, etc.
If you have a port you'd like to keep, you should add a note to it, so it can be skipped.
Do note, if your total port count is greater than your port limit (default: 5) the game switcher will remove ports randomly until it reaches the limit. (It won't remove the egg's default ports)
Make sure to have a BACKUP OF ANY FILES you want to keep as some eggs will wipe all your existing data in order to properly install the server you want.
On the Raw Power Panel, head over to
Find the box named Game Switcher and select a nest from the dropdown.
After selecting a category, select the game type you would like to change to. Then hit the
A Confirmation modal will pop up, with a few options. Please, read through everything carefully. Enable the options you want and then hit
You may not see every single option presented here, that's OK!
Use Default Egg Configuration option allows you to skip setting any Egg variables (view Step #5) and using the defaults instead.
It's recommended to go through setting up the Egg Variables, however.
Unless you enabled the
Use Default Egg Configuration option, you will now be allowed to configure your Egg Variables. Go ahead and edit them to your liking, then hit
Step #6: Profit!
