Hi there! I think I might be experiencing some bugs in MCEdit. Here is what happened. I installed ALL of sethbling's filters and tried to filter a chest with a diamond sword in it with the filter "Modify Item String." But it is as if the filter doesn't exist! It never appears! Many filters don't appear, like Create Geared Mobs, Hedge Maze etc. What do I do?
Are you sure you put your filters in the right folder? There is a folder within the MCEdit directory (or wherever you stored your extracted files) titled <MCEdit-0.1.6.win-amd64> or something similar that has the filters folder within it.
Ok, let me explain why there are two MCEdits. MCEdit downloads a zip file or rar or something like that right? So I chose to extract it to the desktop with the name MCEdit-0.1.6.win-amd64. Thats the first one. Then, inside this MCEdit-0.1.6.win-amd64 folder, there were seven
things. These are:-
To be fair, I think I am just about as stumped as you are at this point. Someone else is having a similar issue as well, and it makes me think that you may have run into a rare, but serious, bug with the program.
I would suggest 0.1.5 - It'll do everything you need, and the dev version will likely have more than just one bug, which is currently what you have. You could also try 0.1.6 in a new location, but I assume you'll end up with the same results.
Edit: Those are 64-bit, based on your screenshot. If you need a different version you can find them here and here.
People doing things the more user-friendly way when they aren't familiar with what's going on is perfectly acceptable. I find it sad that you edit NBT tags instead of writing a program that does it for you, or making your own game that has things set the way you want.
