Quake Live Install Plugins

In this guide you will learn how to install plugins on your Quake Live server using MinQLX.

Installing MinQLX

MinQLX is the framework that allows plugins to interface with Quake Live. By default, we have MinQLX installed on every instance. It simply needs to be toggled on.

  1. Load the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Select your server.
  3. In the left-hand menu, click Configuration > Startup Parameters.
  4. Look for MinQLX and toggle it on.
  5. Restart your Quake Live server.

You can toggle this off at any time if you need to revert back to the Vanilla QL version for any reason.

Installing Plugins

We have some CounterStrikeSharp plugins already added to our 1-click Mod Manager.

  1. Load the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Select your server.
  3. In the left-hand menu, click Management > File Manager.
  4. Open the minqlx-plugins folder.
  5. Drag your plugin .py file inside.
  6. In the left-hand menu, click Configuration > Startup Parameters.
  7. Look for MinQLX Plugins and add your plugin name to the end of the list.
  8. Restart your server.

Please make sure to follow the instructions for each plugin as some need extra dependencies added to minqlx-plugins/requirements.txt. This file is checked every time your server is started with the MinQLX mod enabled.
