    These things a gave are options to use with the command used in region-fixer. So, you have to add them to the command, for example use:

    "python region-fixer.py --delete-entities path_to_your_world"

    to delete the entities while scanning, or:

    "python region-fixer.py --help"

    to see the printed help.

    So you have to add the option to the command line used to call region-fixer in your world. For example to replace the wrong-located chunk you should run:

    "python region-fixer.py --replace-wrong-located --backups path_to_your_bakcup path to your world"

    The help you are seeing there is the help of the terminal itself.
    I tried this and it worked and now I have my world back! I honestly can't thank you enough for your support and patience throughout all of this. I greatly appreciate the effort you put into helping me and working with me step by step. Thank you so much!

    I'm glad you did it! :D

    You got two problems there: the entities and the wrong-located chunks.

    The solution for the entities problem is to delete them all. This sounds scary, but it's not. To fix it add the option "--delete-entities" to the command line you used to scan the world, and region-fixer will delete all the entities in chunks with more than 500 entities (note that you can change this threshold using "--entity-limit", in some cases you need to decrease it). To see what are you going to delete read: http://www.minecraft...t/wiki/Entities note that they are mostly mobs and items on the floor (and remember that they are deleted in the chunk with the problem, no in the whole world!).

    For the wrong-located chunks you can delete them or restore them using a backup. If you delete them minecraft will recreate them when needed and, unless you have something built in them, you won't notice the difference. To restore them you need to use the option "--replace-wrong-located" plus the option "--backups the_folder_of_your_backup" where you need to point to one or more backups of your world.

    Also, but not less important, you can call region-fixer with "--help", and it will print every option in the program :P

    Good luck! Please, tell me how it goes.
    Thank you so much, and for the wrong located chunks, it sucks because I didn't make a backup before the problem occurred so the main world folder and its backup have this problem, so I will probably have to delete it, but I guess I will have to, and I will go ahead and try to delete the entities. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I GREATLY APPRECIATE THIS!!!!

    Okay, so I am trying to delete the entities however, when I type in "--delete-entities" it says command not found. I typed "--help" (without the quotations on either) and when I looked through the commands, I didn't see one that said delete.

    Actually I just typed all of this in and as I am typing, Terminal is scanning for problems right now! Thank you so much! So, how long does it take to usually scan, and if it finds problems, what do I do then? Thanks a ton!

    Sorry for all of these, but now it is done scanning and it found a chunk with 44,000 entities in it. It said as well that there are 0 corrupted chunks and 2 wrong-located chunks out of 10432. How would I go about fixing this?
    Also, sorry for all these messages, but when choosing the different options of how to fix this, I want to choose the one that does the least amount of damage to my world. Like, I don't want to lose any of my progress and builds.

    Now you could change the directory to the one where region-fixer is. Use the command "cd" to change directory, for example, use "cd Pictures" to go inside of the directory called Pictures, or us "cd .." to move one level up. Once you are in the region-fixer directory you can run it with "python region-fixer.py and_here_put_your_world_folder". Does this work for you? Any questions?

    I typed in "cd region-fixer" and it tells me there is no such directory. I downloaded python and it's installed and the source code. Where could I go to see the region fixer folder?

    There should be equivalent instructions for mac. I've seen some people use region-fixer in mac, and some of them have even committed some code for mac compatibility. Because region-fixer is written in python, it works where python does, that is, in windows, mac and linux (where I develop it) and probably other platforms.

    I prefer spending some more words so you get python and region-fixer working to fixing the world myself and send it back to you. As you may heard: "Give a kid a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a kid to fish, feed him for life."

    So, do you know how to open a terminal window?
    Yes I have used terminal for some things, but I am still a novice, I just don't know what to type.

    Python is an interpreter, it will read the code and execute it, so you need python to run the region-fixer source code.

    Now you need the source code, you can grab it using git, but that is a bit difficult, I recommend you downloading it in a zip file. In the region fixer github page you can find a button called ZIP, it's just below the description of region-fixer, the one that says "Python script to fix some of the problems of the Minecraft save files (region files, *.mca).". And just in case here is the link https://github.com/F.../zipball/master .

    Decompress that file somewhere, then run a terminal... a small internet search tells me that you will find it in Applications/Utilities ... then move to the directory where the source code of region fixer is, and now you are ready to run the code. I'm not sure how to do that in macos, but I guess is identical to linux, so write something like "python region-fixer.py <path-to-your-world>" (you are telling to python to run the code of region-fixer). It will begin the scan and report any problems. You can also run "python region-fixer.py --help" to see all the options.

    I hope that helps. Don't hesitate to ask if you need more help.
    Thank you for the information, I am not sure if I will be able to do this, simply because there aren't equivalent instructions for Mac, and that is by no means your fault, I personally think you are doing an amazing job with everything. I know this is a bit much to ask, but then again it is just a suggestion, would it be possible to send you the world file via file transfer on Skype, etc, and then you or someone could perform this on a Windows, and then send the newly fixed file back via Skype or something? I comepletely understand if you can't find time to do that, etc, but would you think that might work? Or would that not be possible to do? In the meantime I will be trying to figure this out. :D

    Thanks as always.

    Hello!

    I don't own a mac and I never had one, but I'll try to help.

    To run this tool you need python 2.7.x (it should work with python 2.7.3), for that you need to go to http://www.python.org/download/ and download the one for your system and install it. You also need to download the source code from github, note, you don't want the windows pack. To download it click in the "ZIP" button that is just below the "CODE" tab and it will give you the lastest code (which is perfectly functional and has a recent fix). Decompress it somewhere and then open a terminal, I don't know where is the terminal in macos, but I'm pretty sure there is one. After that navigate to the region-fixer folder and then run something like "region-fixer.py /path/to/your/world" and it will scan the world.

    If you find any errors/problems/bugs just post here (although I prefer bugs to be in github), I'll be glad to help or fix anything.

    Also... if your world is really broken, could I have a copy of it? I don't have an anvil corrupted world to test the new things I am writing.
    As of now I have downloaded Python and installed it, I'm not sure how I need to use it, if I need to use it at all. My question as of now, is where do I find the source code on github? Is there a URL or a link?

    Thank you, I will try all of this very soon, also I would be happy to give you a copy of my world, I'm just not quite sure how to go about doing that, do I just copy the save file, make a backup, and send it as a file transfer somewhere? Thank you for the advice once again and hopefully I will be back to playing Minecraft again. :D

    Could you or someone else please post a tutorial video or explanation on how to use this application on a Mac? I really need this for my world and I can't stand not playing. I'm a noob to all this stuff, so if someone could help me out that would be great. Thank you.
