Welcome to Kawata, the first osu! cheating server!

FAQ

  • I can’t play on stable/beta/cutting edge
  • You need to install our HTTPS certificate. Download our server switcher and click “Install certificate”. If you’re still having problems, follow these instructions to install the certificate manually.

  • My antivirus is blocking the switcher
  • That’s because our switcher edits the hosts file. Turn off your antivirus and run the switcher again.

  • I get “Invalid Kawata IP” on the switcher, how do I fix it?
  • Make sure you don’t have invalid characters (such as spaces, commas and so on) in your Kawata IP. The IP must contain numbers and dots only.

  • Please come on our Discord and we’ll help you.

  • I get “Bancho authentication failed” (wrong password) when I try to log in, but my password is correct!

  • I can’t download maps from osu!direct.
  • Make sure you are using the latest version of the switcher. It should look like this. If it looks different, download it again from here

  • Can I keep playing while the server is restarting because it’s updating?
  • Yes, your scores will be sent as soon as the server gets back online (usually less than a minute). Just make sure to not close the client.

  • Is there a patcher for Kawata?
  • No, you can change server by editing the hosts file with our switcher. Instructions here.

  • Can I have Kawata’s source code?
  • Kawata is fully open source, you can see it here.

  • Why are osu!direct and other in-game supporter perks free?
