It seems NQ isn't compatible with XreaL yet... Other mods too of course, but I remember I was playing on a Jaymod server without any problems some time ago (that was an alpha build of XreaL if I'm right).


For now, if you would like to discover all the benefits of XreaL, you should start a local server on etmain or connect to the XreaL server:
