    Would it be possible to choose how often the game autosaves? It saves far too often, so if something world-breaking were to happen, you may only have mere seconds to reset the world.

    Actually you can already disable autosave. By default it is set for 30 minutes between autosaves.

    To set the autosave interval, when on MC360's main menu, go to: Help&Options > Settings > Options
    here you will see a slider that says Autosave Interval. It should already say "30 Mins" on it. Select the slider, and press left or right on the left thumb-stick or the direction-pad. Pressing left will decrement the value by 15 minute increments. Pressing right will increment the value by 15 minute increments. Going all the way to the left will completely disable the autosave feature. Going all the way to the right will give an autosave interval of 120 minutes (the maximum). The available autosave intervals (from left to right on the slider) are: OFF, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 105, 120.

    glad it works for you too! Not sure why our saves were changed suddenly. Last update I'm aware of was at beginning of Sept.

    That sounds suspicious, since it was near the beginning of October that the the game-type had been changed to online. Could it have been an "invisible" update that was being automatically pushed (update is applied without the user's knowledge, in the background) as it was only a small code change meant to fix a couple bugs, and the writer of the update believed that because it was so small and so quick to apply, that there was no need to alert the user?

    Or could it have been something more sinister? For example, a hacker that managed to exploit a flaw in XBox Live service to force changes in settings in various games on XBox360 consoles around the world? Or maybe it was an official pushed update, but the reason it was installed invisibly (and not acknowledged to even exist on the public list of official updates) was because they were intentionally installing government-required spyware (that is now illegal for all online-game writers to not include in their games), because the NSA wants to now spy on us through our online video games? If it's the latter of these (NSA, not just some random hacker), it may have also installed government-produced spyware (not just changed some settings).

    I had exact same error msg begin today as well. Found problem. When on main screen to load your world (where you can select creative or survival; peaceful, easy etc.), you need to click on the 'More Options' button and then UNCHECK the box that says 'Online game'. Though I did not turn that feature on, for some reason today it had a check mark in it for all of my worlds. After removing the check mark, my worlds loaded up in multiplayer split screen just as they always have (for local off-line games). Hope this fixes your problem too.


    Thanks. That fixed it. Every single one of my saves had been changed to an online game somehow. Was this glitch caused by an update being applied or something? When was the last update for this game released?

    Split-screen multiplayer mode is now broken. It behaves as if I'm trying to play online XBLive Gold multiplayer and tells me I don't have permission to play online games because I don't have XBLive Gold. I have XBLive Silver, but that shouldn't matter at all for split-screen multiplayer mode, as split-screen multiplayer mode shouldn't even require an internet connection (just like 1 player mode). And when it doesn't show that error message, it shows only my account (player-1's account) in the account selection list (when player-2 presses Start button to join the game), which means that the second player has no way of selecting an account to join.

    Mojang, for the love of all that is good, PLEASE FIX THIS.

    Update:
    It appears that the bug has a fix that can be used to get it back to being able to play split-screen multiplayer again. Read http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/support/minecraft-xbox-360-edition-help/2236825-major-error-message-multiplayer-not-allowed?comment=6. However there is still the question of WHAT CAUSED THIS. I don't know, and I'm guessing it's a bug of some kind. Hopefully this bug will be figured out and eliminated in future updates, so that future updates don't just set the saves all back to online games again.

    I should add this fact. I'm using the disk version (not download version) of Minecraft360. Not sure if that makes a difference in the potential cause of the problem, but just in case it does, I just thought I should mention that.

    Actually, it's my understanding that you only need XBLive (specifically Gold version) for internet-play. I do have XBLive Silver, but that shouldn't even matter, as when playing split-screen mode, it is not accessing internet resources, only local resources (not even LAN network resources, just local to the one XBox360 unit). Furthermore, it has been working for MONTHS in this configuration.



    My configuration is that I (the owner owner of the console and the game) have an XBLive Silver account connected to my profile. My guest also has a profile on my console, but it is a not-at-all-connected-to-the-internet profile. This is so he can save any progress he makes can be saved locally to my console's HDD. We are playing split-screen multiplayer. We are not doing a LAN game (if that would even possible in MC360, I don't know), and we CERTAINLY are not playing over the internet (as that would require a gold XBL account). I do not know why, but despite this configuration working for MONTHS (without so much as a hint that things were about to change, like an error message, or a message talking about a change in the terms of the EULA), it has stopped working just today. Did the makers of MC change their EULA terms of use behind the scenes, then push an invisible game-update (forcible background auto-update to the game, with absolutely no onscreen indicator to show that the game was being updated) onto my system to enforce this change, causing it to now REQUIRE (for the first time ever) online connectivity for BOTH players in a split-screen game of MC360?

    Ok, everything was going just fine. I was playing multiplayer split screen just fine a few days ago. Now just today, when the second player tries to join in on split-screen mode by pressing the start button it give me the below error

    "Multiplayer Not Allowed: failed to join the game as one or more players are not allowed to play multiplayer games on Xbox Live"

    What gives?!

    posted a message on Are Huge Mushrooms (aka Mushroom Blocks) recoded since last analyzed by gamers?
    I'm saying that I believe that the Give cheat no longer works as it used to, regarding huge mushrooms. Can someone tell me the current proper way to use the Give cheat to get any portion of a huge mushroom that I might want.

    Also, I can't directly get a water block anymore by using "/give @p water". That cheat used to work, but apparantly in some of the more recent snapshots it has become impossible to posses a block of water (or lava). I've even tried editing my inventory with an NBT editor and changing an item in my inventory into water, and it makes the item disappear from the inventory in game!

    Can someone please reverse engineer the current form of the game, and tell me why all these cheats aren't working anymore.

    I'm wondering, because it used to be that you could use the Give command, and then set which part of the huge mushroom you got a block for, by setting the Data value. But now, setting the Data value causes no effect at all whatsoever (other than glitching the item icon in your inventory). So I'm wondering if the Huge Mushroom has been recoded, since the Minecraft Wiki article was written that stated that you need to set the Data value to set which part of the mushroom you got?

    In the website I saw it says "Roy Lee And Jill Messick Producing" so that means they've already got someone to do it. It's already set up. Like it or not, there's gonna be a Minecraft movie.

    posted a message on Minecraft Movie?
    I heard about it here: http://www.deadline.com/2014/02/minecraft-movie-warner-bros-lego-movie-producer/

    I wonder what it will be like. The theme song for the anime Monster Rancher seems like it could describe a possible plot for such a movie as this one.
    The lyrics for that being:
    I was transported to a far away land, to a world where monsters rule.
    I played the game like an ace, and now we're in this place to save the monsters from the evil Mu (for Minecraft that could be replaced with Herobrine).

    Monster Rancher and Minecraft also have a connection with the title of Monster Rancher sounding like you are running a farm for monsters (which you aren't in the anime, not sure about the PS1 game on which it was based), and in in Minecraft you actually can farm monster type mobs (look up mob farms).

    Check out the awesome Monster Rancher anime intro video. I could totally get behind a Minecraft movie if it was an anime, and if it was anything like Monster Rancher.




    And here's a pic of Golem (who looks to be made of rock) versus Big Blue (who looks to be a version of Golem made out of ice and snow), who are VERY similar in concept (though not in appearance) to the Iron Golem and Snow Golem in Minecraft.



    In fact I could easily see them making an anime movie about Minecraft also involving Monster Rancher characters, for an epic crossover movie.

    Your coordinates require the debug overlay. Debug overlay is sort of a kind of cheat. If coordinates were meant to be in the game, they would be on the main screen, or be accessible with a key press other than F3 (hotkey that brings up the debug overlay). The debug overlay is not meant to be used while "playing" the game, more like for the developers to use while "debugging" the game (allows them to see if their code is doing what they expect it to be doing). It also can be used by mod developers, for the same reason, but I consider any use of the debug overlay in the actual game-play to be cheating. If Mojang will add coordinates display to the normal game then I'll use it in whatever version it gets added in.

    As for using a mod (like the above mentioned minimap mod), that is obviously cheating. Mods are used to add "cool features" to the game that are not really meant for use by a serious game player, but just someone that wants to mess around and do cool things, much like creative mode. Entering creative mode, using any cheat codes, or using any mod, is cheating when one (such as myself) intents to play fair-and-square in survival mode. Again, if Mojang wants to add a minimap in later versions of the game, then great, I'll use it then. But I'm not going to be using any mods in normal game-play.
