    This is unacceptable business practices. What on earth could you do to have some people decrease from rate by over 80% and THEN on the release notes claim "performance increases" That my friends is the worst business practice ever. Things like this actually cause lawsuits in the US when a business claims one thing and the end result is another. How I wish Mojang was in the U.S. they would have so many different business ethics laws they would HAVE to follow which sweden doesn't have.

    Let me get this staright also: why is a update that adds just a handful of new features so detrimental to performance anyways? Why does their release software (they're NOT in Beta anymore folks) have soooo many bugs? The answer - Mojang has probably the worst suit of coders for java ever. I've never come in contact with an idie game or any game for that fact made in any language with soooo many bugs. There quality control is terrible. Mojang needs to get their **** together people. The honest truth is they are a terrible company with a good idea. What we need is a good company with a good idea.


    And this is where the conflict of sanity came into play. The Dev team wanted to hold off until everything, including the mod API, was finished and stable. But with the length of the update being the longest in MC history, the player base started getting impatient and clamoring for a content release to keep them busy. So they pushed back several features they had planned, focused on phase 1 with the code base merger and added some content to help satisfy the masses.

    Everyone who was involved with testing the snapshot knew it was buggy, and the release would had benefited from being delayed another 2 months or more to work out the odd bugs. But apparently that wasn't enough to stop a lot of players from getting the snapshot, despite the risk, just to mess around with the new content.... and then come here in a panic when something breaks.


    I've been in a lot betas in my days, but this is one of the few instance where the community demands got everyone in over their heads. Then came the delicious tears of butthurt once people realized they were getting what they asked for, but not what they expected.... followed by the "the merger is the worst thing ever" threads, a couple months of rampant misinformation, and now an outcry for a roll back to a divergent code base because it worked better.

    You might have something wrong with java. I would reinstall it and make sure all the browser extentions/plugins working.

    Do the chunks look like the same terrain, or does it look like it had a seed change (different biome's, harsh transitions, etc)?

    If you can roll back again to a pre-broke version of the map, clear the server.log, load it up, have a player check the area, and then come back with the log.

    If your running AVG, you need to disable it while updating the game, and leave it off for another 10 minutes after starting to let it download the rest of the game files.

    You don't. If you lost your one copy of the world save, your not getting it back without some very very expensive data recovery services.

    Or put your bat file on thumb drive or use MC portable and THEN put it on the thumbdrive.

    You could try it through a benchmark program. Rendering in Minecraft is low complexity, but high throughput, so optimally you want to simulate that as best as possible..... I just don't know of a program that'll do that.

    Sometimes I equate Minecraft to Prime95 for your GPU, since thats pretty close to what its doing.

    I've gotten my Minecraft to load before but now (about a month later) I keep getting the cannot connect (not downloaded) message.

    What can I do?


    Login to the website and run the in-browser version. That'll cache the game files locally.

    Any mid-range graphics card will do fine at 1080 resolution. If your looking for build advise, list some of the games you want to play, your budget, if your willing to build your own (or just custom order instead), and about how many years out you want to avoid upgrading.

    A bigger initial investment will get you a system that'll last longer and accept better upgrades down the line. Or you can go a cheaper route and try to add on every year to keep pace with newer games.
