ok. I'm uploading 2 videos to youtube just so you can see. and 2nd video fyi is with stock client nothing else.
snip - movies
Ok, I'm seeing it now. It really helps to know where exactly the issue occurs because running around in mcedit searching for 1 corrupted chunk out of 5000 is a pain and I miss things.
And you have used some sort of hack for infinite health and armor durability. I fell into lava in the nether and just floated there for like 30 seconds.
ok did figure out the hax was adjusting armor value to below -74 with invedit. my apologies.
This world is pretty bad. Its got errors over really wide areas, and it has some that I can't track down. There were all sorts of broken structures, chunk errors, and terrain mismatches and some parts of it are corrupted chunk swiss cheese. The only thing I could do to stop the lag you were having was to delete a huge area and everything in it. It probably won't regenerate quite right either because, as you said, the world was created long ago, and the terrain generator has changed since then, and the world doesn't match up properly.
I suspect that you might have a problem with your hard drive because of the severity of the errors the map was having. I've seen one or two bad chunks together before, but never this many. Make sure your hard drive isn't about to fail.
The other portal in the nether is gone.
The area in the videos is completely gone - I had to delete hundreds of chunks to make it stop lagging. If you want the world back, you can get it HERE.
You might consider making a different world.
But, on a positive note, the lag seems to be fixed. There were lots of structures there that are gone now, but you could always use mcedit to try to copy them back in.
I just installed a new driver that brought my fps up from 10 to 32, which is what I am when I'm not in the area I just explored. I'm building a sky castle, and one hallway is pointing towards the area I just got back from. If you look there, you should see a mountain that I built into. That's the area where my fps drop to about 2.
You see, its the little things like this that help me fix maps. Its all in the details. Pulled up mcedit, found the sky castle, and moved out down the hallway and checked out the map over there. I found 1 little corrupted chunk just chillin and breaking everything. Deleted it, and all is fixed (I hope). LINK TO FIXED WORLD

SUPER EDIT- I'd love to help out fixing maps if you need help eventually. I just have to get more practice with MCEdit and get it running well on this new operating system. Seems like you have a lot of people to help. :biggrin.gif:
Ill post a video someday about how to fix a world.
Horray! new problem. This time I don't know if it's a chunk error. Right near the spot where my game was corrupted before, I'm stuck. I punched a sheep to get wool for my giant creeper, and I can't move. the sheep is red and twitching. I can't hurt it and can't move . I don't know if you can help.
Hello, and even greater hello since it's my first post on this forum :smile.gif:
I also have a problem with my world. After Windows blue-screened and restarted I left the room and the evil CHKDSK did the rest of damage behind my back.
What I tried so far was to recreate it with a new world. I created new one, copied level.dat, level.dat_old and session.lock files to the damaged world. The result was, that I could walk through new terrain, but when I got near my structures (they were undamaged), the hero froze in place. I could look around, punch blocks under my feet but I didn't fall when they were destroyed. Also framerate dropped significantly. I also tried copying older files over a new world - same effect.
But since the buildings looked undamaged I hope it's still recoverable? Unfortunately, I didn't make any backups...
Important things to know:
-herobrine isn't real
-lava can form on the surface naturally
-don't feed the trolls
-we have a board dedicated to SMP servers, posts related to SMP should generally go there
There. Now that thats all done with.
chkdsk isn't evil. It just wants to be your friend. you have the nasty kind of corrupted chunk. They are hard to fix but I will see what I can do (the nasty kind doesn't show up in the map editor and freezes you in place when you go close to it, breaking blocks will not cause them to appear as items, mobs freeze and don't take damage, etc... classic symptoms)
for a minute there you were all copying stuff into the folder and whatnot - that will cause terrain mismatches, a kind of error I cannot fix. Don't do that. Another thing to avoid at all costs - if you ever end up copying worlds into your folder, and that world number already exists, MAKE SURE YOU DELETE IT FIRST. You get weird errors if you don't, and people usually freak out when they see them (chunks of old worlds mixed with new, etc...)
You know what chkdsk is, so I'll assume that you aren't a hopeless case.
In any case, I can't look at it now, but you might be able to help anyway. Download MCEdit, and move yourself back to where you can walk. The glitched region (where you cannot move, blocks don't appear) is a giant square. Try to find a corner. don't walk into it, this results in the hassle of having to move yourself with mcedit out of game. break blocks you suspect to be within its range to test it. keep a backup copy of the world safe, just in case you break it further.
If it doesn't show up in the worlds in minecraft, then just leave it be, and find all of the chkdsk recovered fragments (they have an extension .chk, search your c drive for them, chkdsk dumps them all in one place. there might be sensitive stuff in there, so zip and upload, but pm me the link. I have no interest in breaking into your bank account or whatever, but the same cannot be said of the rest of the interwebs) and i might be able to fix things that way. no promises though about whether or not I can recover it if it's that far gone
I thought I should contribute to the helpfulness of this thread, this is something I've posted on multiple other threads and it's helped a lot of people:

If you have Windows 7 (maybe Vista, try googling "Vista folder backups" or something.) you can go to [Username]/Appdata/roaming/.minecraft/saves then right click your world folder and go to properties, then to 'Previous Versions', choose a date from before your save was corrupted...
Voila! you've lost whatever you've built since that date but at least you haven't lost everything :biggrin.gif:
I also found that (I think) only Vista Professional and Ultimate as well as all the Windows 7 versions have this fix, macs might have their owen version, not sure.
I will add this note to the first post. I noticed this ability myself, but didn't think mush of it.
In my opinion CHKDSK is evil for various reasons :smile.gif:. But leaving that aside, I tried what you told me to do and I came to conclusion, that it's a lost cause. There's not 1 but many bad chunks. Also many of them are within my base, so it would take a lot of time to fix them all and it's simply not worth it (my world wasn't that big anyway). Also I can't find CHK files on my computer (I suspect why though...), so I guess it's even more of a waste of time. I'll just play a new world, making occasional backups this time.
And thanks for help and advice on some things :smile.gif: Cheers!
The metadata is corrupted. I can't get anything out of it. If you have windows backup or system restore or something enabled, you might be able to revert to an older copy. I can't recover the metadata without doing all sorts of horrible stuff. Sorry.
The ones that just cause lag display incorrectly in mcedit. the mcedit terminal will throw errors when it tries to load them. The other ones are much harder to find (they seem perfectly normal). Much hacker juju is required.
EDIT: I downloaded bukkit instead and it runs fine!
EDIT2: I HATE BUKKIT
Please fix this! I accidentally cpied the save over another save
Looking at those errors, it seems to be an issue with minecarts. There are known issues here.
I can't fix the save you copied over. If you have it backed up, restore it. If it's not important, delete it. If you need the other save back, redownload it HERE, where you uploaded it originally. Never do that again.
Always delete or rename an existing save, never just dump a new save on top of it. I can't fix the kind of issues that arise from that.
I read the thread you were directed to this from.
If your world disappears, DON'T TRY TO RECREATE THE WORLD. The world disappears from the minecraft worlds menu because the level.dat metadata file was corrupted. The file is automatically backed up by the game, and in most cases, the backup is not damaged by crashes. You already created a new file over the old one, so your METADATA BACKUP along with ANY CHANCE YOU HAD OF COMPLETELY RESTORING THE WORLD has been LOST FOREVER. Unless you backed it up before you tried to recreate it.
Im taking a look at it to try to fix the corrupted chunks, but I cannot repair your lost metadata.
