    posted a message on Your biggest noob mistake?

    I followed an adventure map for several hours; the white dot was bottom-left, so I headed for it, South-West.


    I eventually realised that the dot was me, and I needed to go North-East.

    Post reasons in this thread about why this version is inferior compared to the Xbox One Edition. I have several off the top of my head:

    posted a message on Eazy Villager transport ?

    so you say you can kill villagers in the breeder ?

    is that not effecting the breeding or just might stop them from breeding ?





    It only stops them for 3 minutes.

    It affects your 'reputation' with the village, but that only affects Iron Golems from that village, and presumably you don't get any from the breeder, so is irrelevant.


    It does not affect trading.


    If anything was affected (which is doesn't seem to be), you can just break the (presumably 6) doors, so the village no longer exists, then put it back.


    I've never had a problem with mass-murder directly in the breeder, other than a few minutes of no hearts.

    posted a message on Connecting Minecraft Win 10 to Java Edition servers?

    Textbook Microsoft,


    1. Embrace: Development of software substantially compatible with a competing product, or implementing a public standard.

    2. Extend: Addition and promotion of features not supported by the competing product or part of the standard, creating interoperability problems for customers who try to use the 'simple' standard.

    3. Extinguish: When extensions become a de facto standard because of their dominant market share, they marginalize competitors that do not or cannot support the new extensions.

    I copy-pasted that without changing a word. I think it is obvious how bedrock, and its proprietory nature, fits this pattern.

    posted a message on My thoughts on 1.13's new Default Resource Pack, and Minecraft's evolution in general.
    Quote from ctmsm»

    it's one of the more contested updates in Minecraft's history


    [Citation needed]

    Every change is controversial, this one is nothing particularly controversial - compared to e.g. combat update, or world gen changes, or clay/terracotta.


    People still argue about the change to cobblestone texture in pre-classic.



    It's the nature of the internet, and of forums, and "We Fear Change"; there's nothing particularly wrong with that, it's healthy to see lively discussion about these things. It means people care, and are involved with the community and the game's development; if people were not complaining about changes, that'd be much more worrying.


    I think you might be assuming too much - correct me if I'm wrong, but, has anyone actually said that the textures are gonna change so soon?


    Maybe that'll be 1.14, 'coz 1.13 is billed as being mostly technical.

    posted a message on Minecraft not downloading after initial install
    Quote from Willesqueleto»

    Thank you so much! For some reason, the direct download of the .jar allows me to play the game with the old launcher. A shame the current launcher doesn't seem to work, which I'm still confused and annoyed by, but I can at least play! Thank you for helping me out


    That's the current launcher, for java Minecraft. I don't know much about bedrock Minecraft, but I don't think it even has a launcher.

    Yup- nothing. Just an error box that says "Unable to download Minecraft, try again later." And here's the DxDiag: https://pastebin.com/DUXY0sZx


    I'm puzzled by that error, I think that's the non-java 'app' thing; if you've downloaded and installed the java version - which should have been 'MinecraftInstaller.msi" - that should have created a shortcut icon, and I don't think that can give that error message. Sorry, I'm just confused about what's going on, I've never seen that message before at all.

    There is just one other idea, that I can think of; go to https://minecraft.net/ and after logging in, go to 'Downloads', but click on 'Download for Linux" instead of the Windows one. You should get a file called Minecraft.jar - try running that. It's exactly the same as the windows download, it's just getting the file directly instead of using the "Microsoft Installer" thing.

    I can't even get into the launcher, the installer just puts the icon on my desktop and then gives me the error message before installing the launcher or the game. I am installing the Java edition as well, and I got it from the minecraft website. As for the registry, I just went into my computer's registry edit and removed a corrupted entry for Minecraft, and a fixed (presumably) one was added back when I redownloaded the game's installer.



    OK; I only know how to help with the Java edition. So when you run the java edition launcher, absolutely nothing happens? If that's the case, post a DxDiag.

    after editing the minecraft registry


    That's pretty terrifying, because 1) there is no such thing as a 'minecraft registry', and 2) you really shouldn't edit the registry unless you know exactly what you're talking about. What changes do you mean?

    Anyway...

    Which version of Minecraft do you mean? It sounds like you might mean the pocket edition or something. I've never seen a message like that from regular Minecraft.

    Where did you get Minecraft from?

    If you are asking about "Minecraft: Java edition", then enable logs (see pic), and post the logs. If you aren't, you're in the wrong section of the forum.
