Run windows version of BDS in linux with Mod support (Yes, it is also can be run in windows)

Installation and usage instructions :point_right: Wiki


  1. Compatiable with official BDS
  2. And support behavior pack with custom item/recipes/scripts (* vanilla server does support them, but disabled in code)
  3. Can be run in windows and linux (with wine)
  4. Native modding support
  5. /transferserver is back!


Q: Why not use a native linux version?
A: The windows version has noticeable performance improvements, even when running under wine.

Q: Can the Windows version run directly under wine?
A: No, because Microsoft uses Chakra.dll, which contains a lot of references to private dlls. (It also prevents you from running on systems prior to Windows 10.)

Q: How it works?
A: I created a dll that simply forwards all APIs to the open source version of Chakra engine i.e. ChakraCore. And this version can run directly under wine.
