I was trying out 1.4.4, and I was walking around in my house and started seeing random torch flames outside my window. I am thinking it's caused by the glass blocks from my skylight, and they have torch's hiting them.I want to know if anyone else has this problem, it would be funny if they had to do a 1.4.5 updateholy updates mojang!1.4.30 that would be the day, Ha Ha!why not use snapshot's they keep + there versionsLOL!Notch needs to talk to Jeb
I can also confirm the torch "floater" bug. I thought it was just my CPU but I'm glad to see that it's a global thing..As of right now, this is my only issue with 1.4.4 I thought I was hallucinating or just over tired or something. It doesn't make the game unplayable but it's a definite nuisance to it.
It got to be so bad in a ravine I was exploring I went back to 1.4.3. I don't care about the swimming against the current bug as I'm usually in a boat around water. I block off most of the streams if not all of them underground or in caves.
Oh, thanks god I found this thread! Minecraft forums are so fragmented that I only found this one by googling the problem!
And thanks god that this was not just me that was getting these flashing floating torch flames all around! At first I thought I was hallucinating! Don't they test the patches before releasing them? Jesus!..
There are a lot of little glitches and bugs I can live with, but this is really annoying. I cant understand why they didnt just skip the 1.4.4 like they did with 1.4.3.
Anyway, I will stay with 1.4.2 until this is fixed...
I just updated from the 1.4.4 prerelease to 1.4.4 release version today (which it offered when I logged in) and the phantom flashes of flames are still there. Maybe it just happens near torches, because I did not notice it roaming around outside. I did hear that it was well known during the pre, so I was surprised it was released that way.
And now everyone is saying LAN-Mode doesn't connect... I absolutely need Lan-Mode. I know they didn't want to do yet another update but I'm still surprised they let all this float. The 1.4.4pre bug list on the wiki has really started to grow. The Lan mode and the torch light problems are something they cannot leave in the game though, they really can't.
