    posted a message on [SOLVED]Game Crashes when launching
    Quote from vekpedes»

    I've recently decided to reinstall minecraft on my computer. Lots of things have change, like the launcher.
    The issue comes along when I press play, it sort of load, but then it crashes. I've read i had to update my nvidia graphics card, but i just installed the latest driver, wich doesn't change a thing.

    Someone told me in some kind of chat to post this, Any clue?


    Grab this;

    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/download/driverResults.aspx/124420/en-uk

    If it still fails with that, enable logging and post the entire output on a pastebin. See pic below for how to enable logs;

    posted a message on Connecting Minecraft Win 10 to Java Edition servers?
    Quote from kiqkin»

    The only thing keeping them from being able to connect is the will power to make it happen.


    Nope, the thing keeping it from happening is, Microsoft want to control servers. They can make more money that way, so why would they will it to happen?

    Ever seen a modded console game? There's not many, and those that do exist are underground hacks.

    Microsoft will not let people create servers on their Xbox network - which is the way Bedrock Minecraft servers work.

    Quote from citricsquid»

    The reason to have separate forums is to make it easier for people who browse the forum to find threads that are relevant to them, however, in the case of Minecraft: Java Edition support, having the separate forums causes confusion amongst people posting about their support issues, we are regularly moving threads to the right support forum. The forum has a prefix system which we will enable to allow people to specify if their thread relates to a modded copy of Minecraft: Java Edition, or an unmodified Minecraft: Java Edition, and this can be used by people browsing the forum to determine if the thread is relevant to their area of expertise which is the only reason to have separate forums. Furthermore, although the Minecraft: Java Edition support forums are active, they are receiving single-digit new threads per day, so while this will increase the number of threads in one forum it will still be less than one new page of threads per day.



    There are far more posts in both of those than in a great many of the other sub-forums.

    It's much harder to keep track of things from the tags than by seeing different listings.

    Of course people sometimes post in the wrong thread, but that problem is going to be far worse under this new regime; if I can't work out where requests should go, how are new people going to?

    A more sensible way forward would be for people requesting support to choose their version from a drop-down.


    Mixing modded and unmodded support is a terrible idea; it's currently about the only part of the forum structure that actually makes sense.

    posted a message on Game Crashed While Using Several Mods
    Quote from blugreended»

    Well, that's a perfectly good excuse for me to remove the mods that I think are the most useless from my modpack.


    Yeah... let me try to give you some advice, regards building your own modpack;

    You're gonna get a lot of errors. That's the nature of modded; things can clash in so many ways.

    So when you get errors, look through the error log; I know it's very long and hard to read, but look for these things, to get a clue which mod is causing it;

    1. Look at the "---- Minecraft Crash Report ----" - the error" and all those lines after it saying e.g.

    Description: Unexpected error

    java.lang.NullPointerException: Unexpected error
    at com.tmtravlr.jaff.items.ItemFishBucket.tryPlaceContents(ItemFishBucket.java:269)


    Often that will be enough to tell you, as above. Sometimes, it will have lots of "at" lines referring just to Minecraft, which won't tell you much - but keep going down and it might reveal the issue.


    2. Look at the section where it says this; "States: 'U' = Unloaded 'L' = Loaded 'C' = Constructed 'H' = Pre-initialized 'I' = Initialized 'J' = Post-initialized 'A' = Available 'D' = Disabled 'E' = Errored"


    Under that, it'll show all the mods with some of those letters, for example "UCHIJAAAA CodeChickenCore{1.0.4.29} [CodeChicken Core] (minecraft.jar)".


    That one is fine. Look for any that have an "E" for errored.




    3. Search for the word "error", often leads to more clues.

    That should give you a good idea of the problem mod, which you can then remove to see if that solves the problem.

    Then, you can decide if you care about that mod - if you do, you can look for more details about why it is causing the issue; it might not be any problem with the mod itself as such, because the problem could be caused by another mod that is conflicting with it - so although removing the mod giving the error might solve the error, it may be another one that is actually the culprit. You can sometimes find more info about conflicts by searching the error; you may see others have had the same problem. You can also check that you have the most up-to-date version of the mod (for your version), and check the documentation for dependencies, and known issues.

    Hope that helps!

    It's not really as bad as it sounds - debugging mods is mostly a process of elimination (to identify the issue).

    "Unmodified Minecraft Client Support" and "Modded Client Support" will become "Minecraft: Java Edition Support"


    Please, God, no.

    Those are two of the most active areas on this entire forum, and there is an absolute, clear distinction between modded and unmodified. Merging them will make 1 single forum huge and a mixture of two totally different types of request.; a great many people use only unmodified, and have absolutely no interest in modded, and vice-versa; the challenges, the knowledge, the skillsets and the questions are completely different.


    Modded minecraft is a completely different thing; more different (from "java") than bedrock is.

    posted a message on No Crossplay for Java?!
    Quote from Romaq»

    Which is easier, decompiling Minecraft Java using the MCP or decompiling and making the same kinds of changes to the Minecraft Bedrock version? And would the answer to this question be significant towards a reluctance on the part of Mojang to include Java in the Better Together update?


    Decompiling the Java edition is over 9000 times easier.

    And yes, that is very significant; Microsoft want more control over things, so they can charge for add-ons, servers, etc.

    Quote from oCrapaCreeper»

    Making the Java version crossplay would be rather difficult. For one, the Java version is the only edition that's coded in a different language from the other versions, and secondly the two platforms still have different features. Probably not worth development time trying to resolve headaches, especially since the Jave Edition is the least bought version of the game and isn't what they consider the primary version anymore.


    Yep, Microsoft is demanding that over 20 million people upgrade to Windows 10, or they're no longer relevant. Because they'll make more cash that way, and don't care about the core community that made the game so popular in the first place.

    Yes, you get a free code for the Windows 10 Edition with the java edition. For now.


    That doesn't help with Linux or Mac, or anyone with an older computer, but... *shrug* - it's Microsoft; they want everyone to use THEIR system, to spend money on their upgrades, and use the platform where they can control the micropayments - for servers, "mods" (well, add-ons), skins, maps, etc.

    and they done it with EVERYTHING ELSE! (Switch, Xbox, PS4, Pocket, I bet even Rasberry Pi if they were still doing that



    Please check your facts. Not Xbox 360, not PS4, not Pi.


    Switch hasn't happened yet either, although it's supposed to happen.


    Feel free to rant at them here: https://feedback.minecraft.net/


    Or, we can have a pointless discussion on the forum again, I guess...

PLEASE HELP. i tried logging in about 20 times but it keeps saying email or password not found. help.. anyone. its been an hour since i lost my account.



    Stop trying to repeatedly log in; that will have locked up your account.


    Are you absolutely sure yiou've got the email address right? Maybe try logging in at minecraft.net (but only once).

    Otherwise...you'll probably have to wait 24 hours.

    After 24 hours, you should try to log in - once. If you still can't, you'll have to contact mojang support; see this link.
