Right now, on the #MineCraftHelp IRC channel, the chances of you getting the help you need depends are based on when you get on. Because of this, if you have linux issue, you have to get on at a certain time if you're going to find someone that actually knows anything about Linux. It's the same with Macs. Also, some people know how to deal with some problems and not others and so it's all really hit-and-miss if you're going to get help. I suggest that here, we (the people who help on #MineCraftHelp) submit problems and fixes to posted here. This way, if you're trying to help someone, but you're not quite sure how, you can look here.
There are going to be a couple rules, though.
First, you can only submit a solution if you know it worked. To verify this, I'd like you to to send me a pm containing the IRC convo so I can look through it and find all the details like OS error messages. If it's really long, send me a pastebin.com link.
Second, I need a problem and a solution. I think it's best that we only add questions that have appeared in the channel. This will make sure that only the problems we will see in in the channel are here.
Hopefully, this will allow us to pool all our knowledge and speed up the process on #MineCraftHelp.

Aug 22, 2010Everybody looks at minecraft and sees the textures and is all like "Hey, these are all cartoony and ****, this should run great!" The truth is, Minecraft is extremely dynamic. In other games, you can set what you'll be able to see from any one point before hand when you're making the map. In Minecraft, it has to decide what to display on the fly. Also, another thing that *might* help would be defragging you're drive. Because it has to access folders all the time, it's a lot easier if it doesn't have to move far.Posted in: Legacy Support
Aug 18, 2010EmpiresBane posted a message on Minecraft should separate into age level appropriateness.And what exactly happens if you're older or younger? What does typing your age in do?Posted in: Suggestions
You'll also find that most of the swearing is done by kids.

2: The other board is for support not server links. And you're supposed to post links in the sticky'd topic, so you're wrong.
3:It's on the blog... Notch is the one who does that so we have no better idea than you do. Probably true considering the developer said it.
4: inb4 topic locked.
Jul 29, 2010Are you using a multicore proccessor? If i remember right this was also caused by multiple cores trying to run minecraft. With minecraft open, you can open up the task manager and find java, right-click it and choose set affinity then pick one core. See if that helps at all.Posted in: Legacy Support
Jul 10, 2010Posted in: Alpha - Survival Single PlayerQuote from Uncreative. »
He meant width and height, not multiplication.Quote from Samonite »Quote from Lutcikaur »Also, with further experimentation, ive found another 'optimized' 5-timer, 4x6, instead of the normal 3x8
Brick is Redstone Dust,
TNT is Redstone Dust on the dirt
Torches are attached to the nearest brick/dirt
"Your most optimized wont work in my situation"
4 x 6 = 24
3 x 8 =24
Multiplication is how you find area... thus the little 'x'.
Jul 4, 2010I laugh at death. No really. I would be perfectly fine if I died right now. I can't actually think of anything that I'm afraid of... There are situations that I'm uncomfortable in, but not afraid. I used to be afraid of spiders, but that's because I got huge bites.Posted in: General Off Topic
Wait, I'm afraid of Cliff bars. Whenever I ssee something that looks like it I try and stay away. I'm really allergic to them.
Jul 3, 2010Posted in: Alpha - Survival Single PlayerQuote from Demki »Could you give the RGBs of the color table?
EmpiresBane, T flip-flop is simple, again, using the annoying smilies:
[iron] [iron] [iron] [iron] [iron] [iron] [iron]
[iron] [iron] [iron]
[iron] [iron] [iron]
oh wow.... that's much smaller than what i was doing... I had NAND's, AND's, and a XOR and it was just a mess...
Jul 3, 2010Posted in: Alpha - Survival Single PlayerQuote from ironpenguin »Quote from EmpiresBane »I'm currently working on a digital clock. it's going to be massive though... luckily, INVedit will make things much easier.
and a whole lot less noteworthy
I'm making a circuit... does it really matter? You know how much time I'd waste just trying to find the materials?
Jul 3, 2010I just need to figure out how i can make a T Flip Flop. After that, I'll probably try to design a 7-segment display and BCD decoder. Although, I have no idea where to even start with a BCD counter...Posted in: Alpha - Survival Single Player
For a T Latch, I can just use a D and then connect the Qprev and T to the D, right?

It's not actually going to display an accurate time, unfortunately.
I'm starting out by trying to figure out how i should do the display. I could do digital, but the wiring would be weird and you'd probably have to get up on a pedestal to even see it because it'd be so big. Just a binary thing would be easier.
Jun 18, 2010Posted in: Alpha - Survival Single PlayerQuote from TheoX »I think when he said he was stressed, he meant that he was stressed out by all the anticipation. Think about it; basically every paid member of MC wants multiplayer extremely badly. It's a lot of pressure, I think.
Let me cover 2 things.
1. He did start it. Back before the break. He has not started work on it since he's been back to work.
2. With exception to the carts, he hasn't added anything that will make it harder. And the only thing about carts that will be harder will be making the movement smooth, and that won't be to hard.
May 31, 2010EmpiresBane posted a message on Christianity, and most other religions are corrupt.Posted in: General Off TopicQuote from Cassian »PS don't go saying "But Cassian the bible never says to hate gays and blacks!" because really, the easy to find ones, and the ones in the church's have so much taken out of them, and most the translations from probably over 100 million translations probably removed some of that stuff and failed to say the proper words
Really... Did you really just say that? It's PROBABLY in the original?
