Pocket Edition 0.9.5 submitted to every store

Hey everyone!

We just released MCPE 0.9.5, another bugfix version for 0.9. This time, it may or may not be the last, but we hope so!

We found and squashed many nasty bugs still hiding in the very fabric on the game, so 0.9 should be now quite stable. Here are the bugs we fixed:

- (Android) fixed a really nasty bunch of problems caused by locking the device like freezing, crashing, corrupting the world and more
- (Android) fixed a bad graphics corruption issue (missing chunks, corrupted chunks and animals) that happened when switching away from the game
- fixed chunks not loading in multiplayer when the client device is slower than the server
- fixed a crash when loading flat worlds after updating from 0.9.0/2
- fixed a possible server crash when a player disconnects from a multiplayer world
- fixed a possible crash or corruption when playing in multiplayer as a client
- Fixed Bryce Mesa biome, now they actually spawn!
- fixed fountains’ water in strongholds
- (Fire TV) fixed missing textures

And we made a few tweaks, too:

- Players that have been placed at extreme heights by the respawn bugs are now placed back at y=130
- (Android) the game doesn’t waste battery power and really stops rendering now when in the background
- not getting stuck anymore in the “Looking for Server” screen if the server is full
- animals are never despawned, again

We’ve just uploaded this version to every store, so it should be out on Google Play soon and on Apple, Amazon and Samsung stores soon-ish!

Minecraft snapshot 14w30b

Update: We’ve released snapshot 14w30b to fix some crashes and world holes.

It’s apparently my birthday today, so you get a present! That’s how birthdays work inside Minecraft.
Todays snapshot is heavily focused on more optimizing, with a pinch of bug fixing and a sprinkle of feature creeping. I think you’ll like it!

Notable changes:

  • Added Banners! But I’m not going to tell you how they work :)
  • Made Creeper, Skeleton and Zombie Heads available in survival. How? Don’t ask me!
  • Major optimizations to client rendering. It’s magical!
  • Lots of fun bugs fixed. Lighting should behave a little nicer now!
  • Crafting cuddles now requires one extra hug in the recipe.
  • [Bug MC-7508] – lighting error due to Chunk.heightMap ignoring block at the top level of an ExtendedBlockStorage instance (off by 1 error)
  • [Bug MC-32514] – The well in a desert village is made out of the wrong material/cobblestone
  • [Bug MC-58790] – Sign with give / replaceitem doesn’t update player inventory
  • [Bug MC-60301] – Broken resource packs: Game Crashes when i try to load 14w27a/b
  • [Bug MC-60552] – Flower pots with metadata placed in 1.7 will not render in 1.8 snapshots / metadata not removed
  • [Bug MC-62127] – Turning off VSync crashes the game
  • [Bug MC-62138] – “#PLAYER” Appears on Sidebar
  • [Bug MC-62170] – Carpet has incorrect height?
  • [Bug MC-62180] – /testfor @p doesn’t consider x,y,z anymore
  • [Bug MC-62223] – Crash in Video Settings menue
  • [Bug MC-62240] – command selector parameters dx dy dz don’t work
  • [Bug MC-62267] – Game crashes when trying to enable VSync
  • [Bug MC-62342] – Slabs can not be placed in adventure mode with tag CanPlaceOn.
  • [Bug MC-62349] – Hopper: java.lang.NullPointerException: Saving entity NBT
  • [Bug MC-62379] – Spawners (Dungeons, Strongholds, etc…) can spawn mobs outside of worldborder
  • [Bug MC-62419] – Hopper: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot get property bcy{name=half, clazz=class ats, values=[upper, lower]} as it does not exist in bch{block=minec
  • [Bug MC-62493] – “/worldborder get” can display invalid size using “/worldborder add”
  • [Bug MC-62499] – /replaceitem block has incorrect syntax
  • [Bug MC-62504] – /kill adds 214748364 / 0xCCCCCCC to “Damage Taken” statistics
  • [Bug MC-62507] – Overlapping Dungeons Don’t Spawn Correctly
  • [Bug MC-62655] – Cubic player selector always finds player if there are more than 31 Entities around
  • [Bug MC-62736] – ReplaceItem command not updated when the command was executed with a sign
  • [Bug MC-62789] – Chunks containing paintings may be wiped and regenerated upon load

Pocket Edition 0.9.3 submitted to Google Play

Hello!

We just released a new Pocket Edition version to Google Play, 0.9.3!
This version fixes some last nasty bugs that we introduced in 0.92:

- fixed several crashes that prevented from playing in multiplayer
- fixed a nasty bug that on death might hang the game and/or spawn you really up in the sky
- on Android, you can get more than 3 levels of view distance again
- the game now handles when a world is corrupted and not repairable showing an error screen
- Creepers don’t spam weird sounds anymore
- mobs won’t spawn anymore in peaceful, and existing ones will be removed
- correctly despawning entities on clients
- fixed soft shading on wool tiles
- possibly fixed other lock-ups and crashes

We are going to wait and see how it works before submitting it to App store and Amazon store but we hope to do that tomorrow. Most of the issues should now be fixed but please report things if they break!

Minecraft snapshot 14w29b

Update: We can never be sure if bending space around time is the right approach until we get feedback from you on the 14w29b snapshot that bends time around space instead. We do that by using the newly implemented threaded render batch system. That’s a lot a fancy sounding words, so if you don’t know what that means, it should improve performance even more. Or crash horribly. But without your feedback, we’ll never know which one is true.

So here it is, the 14w29b update…

Fixed in this snapshot:

  • [Bug MC-62116] – Players loses CommandStats{} after Death
  • [Bug MC-62134] – #players are taking up space on the sidebar display

— 14w29a update notes —

This snapshot contains a lot of optimizations specifically targeting render performance. If your system supports it, you can select VBO in the video setting. This enables Vertex Buffer Objects and should increase your fps by 5% to 10% on average. We are especially interested on feedback on performance related issues with this snapshot.

Last week we compressed time and space, that did not work too well for the snapshot. So this week we will try something else and bend space around time. Apart from these highly experimental changes, we also did this:

  • [Bug MC-71] – Mobs don’t spawn next to water streams if the x and z coordinates are negative
  • [Bug MC-267] – Potion effect status doesn’t show If the inventory was open when it was cast upon the player.
  • [Bug MC-393] – Starvation prevents sleeping in bed on peaceful.
  • [Bug MC-404] – Viewing a map while invisible still shows both hands holding it
  • [Bug MC-455] – Standing on exact X.0 Z.0 coordinates prevents breaking/placing block in North West
  • [Bug MC-486] – Zombies and Skeletons don’t burn on slabs
  • [Bug MC-506] – You can make smooth sandstone into smooth sandstone
  • [Bug MC-665] – Minecarts and TNT are not moved by water currents
  • [Bug MC-676] – Signs and chests do not display cracking animation
  • [Bug MC-49041] – Teleporting with rotation might twist your head
  • [Bug MC-53033] – Unable to disable nameTagVisilibity for someone in spectator mode
  • [Bug MC-57516] – CanPickUpLoot and CustomNameVisible not Working
  • [Bug MC-59052] – Cannot add fake players or named entities to scoreboard teams
  • [Bug MC-59602] – Hoppers/Dropper can’t take water bucket out of furnace
  • [Bug MC-59634] – You get the message “Your game mode has beed updated” even when sendCommandFeedback = false
  • [Bug MC-59946] – Iron trapdoors appear on the opposite side of where they are placed when open (east/west orientation)
  • [Bug MC-60279] – Detector rails render as unpowered, even when powered
  • [Bug MC-61033] – Particle command don’t work
  • [Bug MC-61451] – Frame-rate drop in 14w28b
  • [Bug MC-61453] – /title command writing errors on the server log
  • [Bug MC-61505] – Mob Spawners count min/max spawn delay with a rate of 10 instead of 1
  • [Bug MC-61519] – Chests that should be oriented east/west are oriented north in desert temples
  • [Bug MC-61577] – CommandStats are not used when a command sign is right-clicked by non-OPs
  • [Bug MC-61586] – Client freezes for ~1 second in multiplayer when opacity of a block changes next to unloaded chunk
  • [Bug MC-61666] – cannot setblock or fill ender chests
  • [Bug MC-61711] – Sidebar Scoreboard shows the lowest scores and not the best when hitting the limit of the sidebar
