    Preliminary information

    Prima di enter the dettaglio della procedura su how to have the cape in minecraft, I think you might be interested in learning more about the meaning that this aesthetic object has within the game.

    Well, since the birth of Minecraft, the cape has always been seen by users as an aesthetic object that distinguishes a player of great value. In fact, Mojang herself has repeatedly rewarded the best users of the community by giving them personalized cloaks, to wear in the game world.



    In short, having a cape in Minecraft can certainly make you get a certain degree of "authority" within the game and maybe make you more "cool" in the eyes of other players: in this regard, do not underestimate the possibility of showing yourself off with your friends!

    That said, let's ban the chatter and see how to get this accessory in the easiest and fastest way possible.

    How to get the cape in Minecraft Premium

    Minecraft is played a lot on PC and, of course, this is also the platform where the most customizations and mods are found. Therefore, several methods could not be missing to obtain a cloak: below you will find listed all the most effective ones.

    How to get the cape on Minecraft Premium no mod

    As mentioned above, the cape is a very special item for Minecraft players and therefore getting it without using mods is quite complex.

    Often the cloak is in fact given away with the purchase of a Minecon ticket, an event dedicated to Minecraft fans that takes place every year in different parts of the world. For more information in this regard, I recommend that you consult the official website of Mojang (in English).



    In addition, the cloak is provided as a reward to users who over the years have helped develop Minecraft and translate it into different languages.

    In short, as you may have already guessed, these methods are quite expensive in terms of time and money, but there is a shortcut: the one you find in the next chapter of this guide and which concerns the use of mods.

    How to get the cape in Minecraft for free

    One of the most appreciated possibilities by the community is to use against in Minecraft. In fact, these "changes" to the game allow you to significantly improve the gaming experience. Among the various creations of the players, obviously a mod called could not be missing Advanced Capes, designed just to get the cloaks in Minecraft.

    To install this mod on Minecraft Java Edition, I recommend installing the profile first Forge: to do this, just go to the official Forge website and click on the item Installer. In some cases, you may need to click the orange button Show all Version to find the version of Minecraft you are playing with.

    A download completo, apri il file forge- [versione] -installer.jar obtained, select the item Install Client I awarded her OK. Perfect, now the system will install the Forge profile on Minecraft. This procedure is valid for both Windows and macOS, since you are going through a .jar file.

    Now, go to the official website of Advanced Capes, select the Minecraft version you are playing with and press the button Download/Download this file. At this point, move the file advancedcapes- [version] .jar in the path C: Users [nome utente] AppDataRoaming.minecraftmods (Windows) or ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods (macOS).


    As for Windows, remember that AppData is a hidden folder and therefore you need to enable the viewing of hidden folders. To do this in Windows 10, type "browse file options" in search bar present at the bottom left and select the first result. At this point, move to the tab viewing, select the voice View hidden folders, files and drives I awarded her OK. If, on the other hand, you use Windows 7, you need to access the Folder options and enable the voice View hidden files and folders.


    For all the details of the case, I recommend that you consult my guides on how to show hidden files and how to install mods on Minecraft.

    At this point, open Minecraft launcher and click onup arrow icon present in the green button at the bottom. Then select the profile forge and premium tasto PLAYS.

    Great: now all you have to do is start a new game (perhaps by clicking on Single Player and then Create a new world) and press the key F5 on the keyboard. In this way, the view will "widen" and you will be able to see that your character is already wearing the default cloak introduced by the mod. If not, press the button Esc, select the item first options and then Skin customization and verify that the option cloak is set to Yes. You should now have obtained the cloak on Minecraft Java Edition.


    There are several methods to customize the cloak, but my advice is to take advantage of the text commands implemented by the mod. Then press the button T on the keyboard and type the command / setcape url [cloak link] .png (Eg. /setcape url https://www.configurehow.com/wp-content/contenuti/2019/06/Mantello-Minecraft-configurehow.png, to get the configurehow mantle).

    If, on the other hand, you want to use the cloaks made by the Advanced Capes community, just use the command / setcape website [cloak creator user username] (Eg. /setscape website IskanderGal). Once this is done, come on Submit and the cloak will appear in the game.

    As you may have already guessed, cloak skins can be obtained from numerous sources. My advice is to rely on those present directly on the official website of Advanced Capes or to perform some research online.


    Remember, though, that the cloak skin files must be in .png format and have been uploaded to a site that has a URL accessible to everyone. In addition to this, you must clearly have a working internet connection and authorize Minecraft to use it when the appropriate pop-up appears, in case you are using Windows.

    In some cases, .png files found on the web may not work, as not all cloak skins are compatible with the Advanced Capes mod. For this reason, below I list some of the best skins I have had the opportunity to test, followed by the command to activate them.

    • Cloak configurehow – /setcape url https://www.configurehow.com/wp-content/contenuti/2019/06/Mantello-Minecraft-configurehow.png
    • Reproduction of the Minecon 2011 mantle – /setcape website SuperMMario

    • Blue fire cloak – /setcape website DEFIRELORD
    • Mojang employee cloak – /setcap url https://gamepedia.cursecdn.com/minecraft_gamepedia/8/8c/Mojang_cape.png

    Attention: the URLs and cloaks linked to users could clearly change and therefore the commands I have listed above are to be taken for indicative purposes only. In any case, I suggest you take a look at the Minecraft encyclopedia (in English), where you can find countless types of cloaks for your character to wear.

    How to get the cape in Minecraft PE

    Over the years, users have found ways to have the cloak on too Minecraft Pocket Edition, going through the editing of different game files.

    In particular, the players go to place modified files inside the main folder of Minecraft Pocket Edition. My advice, however, is to drop these methods. In fact, they are not well regarded by the community, since you go to get your hands on "delicate" folders, where you can compromise the game in its entirety.

    Also, I assure you that Minecraft Pocket Edition is quite fun even without having a cape and that you will find other cosmetic items that will meet your needs in terms of the character's look.

    How to get the cape on Minecraft PS4

    Console gamers also wish to have the cape in Minecraft. Unfortunately, however, this aesthetic element is extremely difficult to obtain on platforms such as PS4.

    The only method to get a cape on Minecraft for PS4, Xbox One or Switch is to wait for the developers to decide to make this aesthetic element available to users.

    This actually has already happened, but only on some special occasions, for example during the Minecon, an event dedicated to fans of the Mojang title.

    Therefore, I cannot be more precise with my indications, as the promotional periods in which it is possible to obtain a cape in the console version of Minecraft are decided by the developers, often without too much notice: I can only advise you to be alert!
