If an admin/mod could help me out and change the title to
HOW TO PLAY Multiplayer MINECRAFT PE WITH PC(OR MAC?)+ANDROID/IPHONE.

that would be awsome.

After a bit of playing around with BlueStacks, I have successfully connected to a server hosted on my Android Tablet with BlueStacks on my PC.

Android/Iphone end.
Just host a game the way you normally would. Just be connected to the same network and host it befor you get to step 15 of Part 2 on the PC/Mac instructions.


PC (or Mac?) end.
Part 1: Playing Minecraft Pocket Edition on PC (and Mac?).
1: Install Bluestaks
2: Enable the Google Play Store:
3: Download Minecraft Pocket Edition from the play store.
4:If you get a brown screen when you launch it 1st:hit home and open Minecraft aging, then if it dose not work restart bluestack and then try launching it (as well as hitting home and re-launching it)

Part 2: Joining Multiplayer Games.
1: Download Pocket Tool from the play store
2: Launch Pocket Tool
3: Open: Tool Kit
4: Open: Change server IP
5: Type in an IP. (either your phone/tablets local IP or an online servers external ip)
6: Select: Patch My IP!
7: Back to Tool Kit Menu
8: Patch Mod
9: Long press the #.#.#.#.mod file with the IP you want.
10: Select "Patch, of course!"
11: Then press menu button on the bottom of the screen.
12: Select Apply Changes
13: Pocket tool app uninstall and reinstall Minecraft
14: You will need to restart bluestacks as for some reason a freshly installed Minecraft dose not work with out restarting.

16: Play!


Please give me feed back on if my instructions are clear.

For hosting a server, that is way better, however that wont let you play cross platform between PC/Mac and Android/I-Phone.

My first reaction was "OMG Bluestacks support NDK applications now!!!11!"

I only thing with bluestacks is the way it handles IPs. Somethings like nesoids netplay works, but ftp over lan dose not.

Well, well, If it isn't Mr. I feel so superior to other people just because they have opinions or ideas that are new but doubtful to the forum community. You better open up and stop acting like a head honcho

Not sure. What error message do you get?

I don't have enough info to give you a direct anwser but if it helps I can toss in a few possible solutions

Check you firewall setting, Make sure you IP is correct. Also I have never tested playing with both players being set to the same name, (I don't know if that would even cause an issue but worth checking.), Also make sure they both have the same version of Minecraft installed, as well as cheak to make sure your PC can even play Minecraft PE in single player.

and don't excpect to be able to host with your PC, the reason that it can't host is the same reason it take so many hoops to get it to play multiplayer to begin with.

Also as for the people asking about keyboard input
Well I tried using game keyboard on the app maket, (if I recall its $5) but for one it requires root (I rooted my tablet but havn't tried rooting bluestakes yet), but even then it seems to not be reponing to my key presses. Other games seem to work just fine with it, Its just minecraft I can't get to responed to it, if anyone else figures it out I would love to know. (may be I could just be doing something wrong.

Is there an update to this process? I had a problem at step 13: there was no option within pocket tool to uninstall or install MC:PE.  Now, when I retry the process, It says the APK file is invalid when I "apply changes".

This was great. Thanks dude. But when you're installing minecraft again using pockettool it wouldn't let me so I had to do it from the play store. Is there something I did wrong?

Awesome info, I was able to to do everything listed BUT when my son enters his world in his tablet, I can't see him on my computer in order to join his world. I've checked & double checked my computer's IP and everything is fine. We have wifi so his tablet has an IP & computer has another one, and both getting wifi from same router, so not sure what to do, please help when possible, thank you.
