Me and a few mates have come back to this because it has cross platform so its pretty accessible for all of us, but how much different is this version to Java which we used to play?
I've seen some things from Betas that have dolphins etc I'm guessing its a while till that arrives?
"Behind" is open to question…
Depending on how you like to play, one of the most important differences may be that the technical differences in redstone components between versions may make your prefered java/original platform builds inoperable in Win10.
Updates are forced, and unpredicatable re being in working order. Since September 23, 2017, for every update, NOT ONE has gone smoothly, Instructions and messages WITHIN Minecraft have been PATHETIC. What should take SECONDS or MINUTES per device, takes HOURS! And then, in Multiplayer (Friends ONLY on my purchased Realm), there are NUMEROUS DISCONNECTIONS and CRASHES. The corporate entities need to MEET, and FIX the MESS. Proper cross-plateform MUST HAPPEN before FORCED UPDATES! Cross-platform means COMPUTERS, iPads, iPhones, etc. NOT JUST XBOX Consoles!!!!!
I don't think your issue is common across the board riverboat. You seem to be experiencing constant issues which nobody else I know has issues with and I play cross platform with a lot of people, as does my son, and never had these problems. Maybe you're doing something wrong?
