Creating a Startup Script for Geyser-Standalone
In order for this to work, you MUST have Java 16 (or higher) installed!
Once you have downloaded and placed Geyser into its own folder, you will need to create a startup script; similar to how you’d run a Bukkit/Spigot/Paper server.
- Create a new text file in the same location as the Geyser-Standalone jar file, and call it
run.bat. Open this with a text editor (preferably Notepad++), and insert the text below:
@echo off java -Xms1024M -jar Geyser-Standalone.jar pause
- Double-click the run.bat, and Geyser should start up. Geyser will generate all the needed files.
- Create a text file called run.command, and open it with a text editor such as TextEdit or TextMate. Type the text below into the run.command file:
#!/bin/bash cd "$( dirname "$0" )" java -Xms1024M -jar Geyser-Standalone.jar
- Open Terminal, and type in
chmod a+x(Do NOT press return!), and drag your run.command file into the Terminal.
- Press return on your keyboard, and Geyser will start up. Geyser will generate all the needed files.
- Create a file called run.sh, and open it with a text editor. Type the text below into your
#!/bin/sh cd "$( dirname "$0" )" java -Xms1024M -jar Geyser-Standalone.jar
- In your default terminal application, make the file executable by running
chmod +x ~(dir)/run.shwhere
diris the name of the folder Geyser is in, or by changing the file permissions;
- Open your default terminal application, and type
./run.shto run Geyser. Geyser will generate all the needed files.
