    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.

    and how would i get an entire log im new to this server stuff


    It should be in the same place as your server file, and it's called "server.log", you can open it with a text editor like Notepad.

    posted a message on Microsoft ruined minecraft pe
    Quote from Geneo»

    Mojang is trying to save the MC franchise, not ruin it. The java version essentially is bogged down.

    You forget that the BTU is the first variation. Many more updates and bug fixes are coming. You ain't seen nothing yet.


    But they're 2 different games, and they work different... on purpose. People assume that just because both games have "Minecraft" in the name they should be alike. No, there's 2 Minecrafts, and they're each different.... and they're becoming more different with every update.


    Play the edition you like, but it's a waste of time to try to compare them.


    Oh, IDK, let's compare...


    Java:
    100,000 servers, or make your own in 5 mins
    millions of free mods
    millions of free skins and textures


    Bedrock:
    3 servers (tightly controlled)
    a few add-ons (from the market, top up your coin$!)
    a few 'packs' ($$$)

    posted a message on Not enought saplings.
    Quote from CinnamonGirl»

    Is there any command I can use to make the leaves whenever I cut a tree drop more saplings? I am having trouble specially with the dark oak tree because it won't drop enough to even replace the tree I am cutting much less to have some extra saplings to make my own tree farm. I don't want to deforest my place. Thanks!!!


    You could break the leaves with any tool that has the fortune enchantment. With Fortune 3, there is a 10% chance of a sapling, instead of a 5% chance.

    But, you're asking this in the creative section - so why not just grab a stack of them from your creative inventory?

    posted a message on How to make texture packs for MCPE Windows 10
    Quote from Hydra_Cube»

    Hello,


    Since my latest texture pack request was a fail, I wanted to know how to make my own texture pack for MCPE Windows 10, I am on 1.2,

    All I want to do is change a few textures (just changing 3 textures)


    I don't think that is possible.

    Microsoft is controlling the content; you'd get a texture pack from their marketplace, using the coins.

    The game prevents you from making any changes to it directly; there may be hackish ways, but those would be in breach of the EULA, so we probably can't even discuss them on here.

    To modify textures in any official way, you'd need to be a certified Microsoft Partner, which has complicated criteria.

    The downloadable content, including textures, is vetted by Microsoft.
