    posted a message on Tips for Beating Minecraft in Hardcore Mode

    One tip I've learned through my Hardcore worlds is the second you can, get a shield. And always keep a shield in your offhand slot, unless you have a Totem of Undying. Even without an ounce of armor, if you block with your shield you can take the full force of a creeper blast without losing a heart of damage. You can also block all melee and ranged attacks. (Although I believe you still take fire damage from flaming arrows & flaming zombies.)


    All you need to craft a shield is 1 iron ingot and 6 wooden planks.

    posted a message on Does a larger world increase server lag?

    Say my server's world becomes 50GB in size. Would that increase server lag even when those chunks are unloaded?


    Also, what if only one dimension is very large in size? (E.g. the Nether.) Would that increase lag even if you weren't in said dimension?


    Thanks.

    posted a message on [Solved] Minecraft stuck keys issue - WASD keys constantly become stuck while moving

    Okay so I figured out how to fix the glitch, but it's kinda strange. It turns out is WAS my keyboard all along. I know this because I got a new keyboard recently, and I have not experienced the glitch since switching.


    What's strange is I know my old keyboard is not the direct cause of the glitch - Minecraft is. If my old keyboard was completely at fault, then I would have the same issue in other games with WASD controls. (Which I didn't.) So I can only assume that for whatever reason, LWJGL has an issue with my old keyboard. Perhaps a driver or something? I really don't know.


    So for anyone else who is having this problem: Even if you're positive it's not your keyboard, try switching it out. It might work.

    posted a message on [Solved] Minecraft stuck keys issue - WASD keys constantly become stuck while moving

    I have figured out another quirk with the bug; it only starts happening after I open my inventory. So, the movement keys won't get stuck until I open my inventory for the first time, and from then on they will. (Restarting the game resets this.)


    Sorry for the additional reply. I just thought I'd mention this in case it changes anything.

    Old versions are not designed to work with new lwjgl, hence why they're old.



    Good point. Problem is, the old versions of MC also don't work with the older LWGJL versions. No matter what version of LWGJL I have installed, the stuck keys glitch still takes place in MC 1.8.9 and 1.12.2.


    Here's my crash log from 1.13.2: https://pastebin.com/6u4ezNzu]


    EDIT: After a bit more testing, I am fairly certain that stuck keys bug is not the cause of the game crashing in 1.13.2. Even when I don't move at all, the game still crashes. (It might just be a corrupted save.)


    EDIT #2: I created a new singleplayer world in 1.13.2 and tested the bug there. No crashing at all. (Something was definitely wrong with the other save.) Sorry about that.

    Which MC version are you having the issue in? The current version, 1.13.2, already comes with updated lwjgl. Check this list of incompatible software https://minecraftirc.net/support-articles/known-incompatible-software/



    After force updating LWJGL, I no longer have the stuck keys issue in 1.13.2. However, whenever I would normally get a stuck key (W/A/S/D + Space at the same time), the game crashes instead. I'm mostly concerned about versions prior to 1.13.2 though, because I only play on 1.8.9 and 1.12.2. And in those versions, the stuck keys bug still takes place even after updating LWJGL to the latest version. (No crashing happens prior to MC 1.13)


    I checked out the incompatibility list, thanks for the link. The only incompatible software I have is GeForce Experience, and I already disabled the in-game overlay so it should not be the cause of the problem.

    posted a message on [Solved] Minecraft stuck keys issue - WASD keys constantly become stuck while moving

    Hello everyone. Recently I switched from a Mac to a PC, and since then I've been having issues with movement in Minecraft; Whenever I press a WASD key down at the same time that I hit spacebar, that WASD key will become "stuck" and my player will continue to move even when I'm no longer touching the keyboard. This happens incredibly frequently, probably around 5 times a minute, and it makes the game unplayable when you're in dangerous situations.


    After a lot of troubleshooting and googling, I have narrowed down the most likely cause to be the LWJGL library. From what I read, the solution to that problem is to update LWGJL, so that's what I did. I could not figure out how to manually update LWGJL in the new launcher, but I did find a way to force the Launcher to update: I deleted the LWJGL folder located at .minecraft\libraries\org\lwgjl, and then ran the latest version of Minecraft to force install a newer version of LWJGL. This updated LWJGL from version 2.9.4 to version 3.1.6, which did fix the issue in MC 1.13. However, I only play on 1.8.9 and 1.12.2 (both of which have the bug), so this didn't solve my problems.


    I also read a lot of the old forum threads about this topic, but the solutions I found in those threads are either outdated or don't work.


    Here's a list of everything else I have done to try and fix the bug: (None of these worked)

    • Disabled "in-game overlay" in the NVIDA GeForce Experience app.
    • Updated Java to the latest version.
    • Updated Windows 10 to the latest version.
    • Downloaded Optifine.
    • Downloaded and ran the old Minecraft launcher.
    • Deleted the previously mentioned LWGJL folder and let the old launcher re-install it.
    • Disabled "sticky keys" in the Windows settings.

    Here's what I know isn't causing the bug:

    • The keys on my keyboard. I checked and nothing is physically causing them to stick.
    • The keyboard itself. I have played other games with WASD controls and have not experienced this bug even once, so I'm assuming it's not the keyboard.
    • My PC's performance. My FPS is always at least above 100, so I'm good there.

    Here's my system specs: Windows 10, 16GB of RAM, NVIDA GTX 1050, Intel i5-8600k


    Is anyone else having this problem? And if so, have you found any solutions?

    Thanks!

    posted a message on Looking for a custom crafting plugin that supports custom player heads

    I want to make it so people can craft present heads in my SMP Bukkit server, but the only custom crafting plugins I found either don't work in 1.11 (Like this one), or don't appear to support custom NBT data tags. (Like this one.) Does anyone know of any plugins that do what I'm looking for? I should also mention that some of the heads I want to use are not actual player heads, like this one for example.

    I have been waiting for it for years but at this point progress on the API (if there's any progress at all) seems incredibly slow. Does anyone know if the API is still being developed? Was it dropped?
