Difference between a glitch and a bug?
Posted 28 October 2010 - 11:13 PM
I was told this is not a glitch. However I have been told that this is a "bug" that Notch knows about. So what is the difference between a "bug" and a "glitch"? If there is none, was I wrong to call the void a "glitch"?

Maybe you are right. Guess I'd have to ask Notch to get a straight answer.

A glitch is a short-lived fault in a system. It is often used to describe a transient fault that corrects itself, and is therefore difficult to troubleshoot.
There is a slight difference.

That is my thought though.
I'm probably wrong

bugs are usually something thats wrong in the code and data in the game.
but what about how people glitching in a game to their advantage. isnt that term used wheneither the programmers didnt think everything through in the game and the players found it?
theres a "glitch" and then theres "Glitching".
so whats "Glitching"?

Glitch sounds much cooler though so use that one.

Glitch = bad collision/scale (for example, not being able to jump on something or walking through walls)

Bugs are things that put there accidentally by whoever created it. A glitch is something a person would stumble upon that's not supposed to happen when they are doing something.

A bug is a consistent hole in coding where there is no code to prevent/do something. For example in an online game where you could gain prospectively infinite experience easily, where that's not the intent of the game and it shouldn't be allowed, but you can consistently cause it to happen.

While the Void could be considered a bug you have to consider that Minecraft is still in Alpha and not everything has been developed.
