Dalamud Actions Status Discord Shield


Dalamud is a plugin development framework for FINAL FANTASY XIV that provides access to game data and native interoperability with the game itself to add functionality and quality-of-life.

It is meant to be used in conjunction with FFXIVQuickLauncher, which manages and launches Dalamud for you. It is generally not recommended for users to try to run Dalamud manually as there are multiple dependencies and assumed folder paths.

Hold Up!

If you are just trying to use Dalamud, you don't need to do anything on this page - please download XIVLauncher from its official page and follow the setup instructions.

Plugin development

Dalamud features a growing API for in-game plugin development with game data and chat access and overlays. Please see our Developer FAQ and the API documentation for more details.

If you need any support regarding the API or usage of Dalamud, please join our discord server.

Thanks to Mino, whose work has made this possible!
