    Quote from epiclinkfan101

    It's constructive criticism.


    I am not sure where you see that, because I don't see it in this post, or any other similar posts for that matter (God knows how many there are out there)

    constructive criticism
    criticism or advice that is useful and intended to help or improve something, often with an offer of possible solutions

    All I see is whining and bitching like: I don't like this, and I used to like that but now it sucks or is boring.

    This is not constructive criticism, this is criticism voiced out of self-interest, which has the opposite effect, nobody will listen, because nobody cares what you think is boring or what you think is interesting

    Rado,
    Ok, I've started everything from scratch, including a download of Java 64 and everything now seems to be working fine! Thanks for your help.
    I've never bought a game like this before, so I was surprised at the amount of tweaking it took to get it right.
    Thanks again.


    Glad to hear that, and it was my pleasure.

    I also tried this from the minecraft support page:

    javaw -Xmx512m -Xms512m -jar minecraft.exe
    and saving as the .bat file, but that doesn't work either :(


    First this is incomplete, you have to copy and paste EXACTLY what I typed in my second post, second this will set it to 512 mgb which is half of what Minecraft needs, so it would be pretty much useless to get this .bat file to work

    Am gradually losing the will to live,

    I hope you are joking, or at least exaggerating, because if you are serious, then getting MC to work should be the least of your worries. if you are losing the will to live over a game that costs even 10 x 17.95, you need help, but not the kind of help you would get from any of us


    not only have i paid 17.95 for a game that is unplayable,


    The game is NOT unplayable, do you really think it would have sold 7 MILLION copies if it was, please don't blame Mincraft for the trouble you are having


    I know I'm not the only non-techie out there with this problem and I appreciate all the help people are giving. Thanks guys.


    I don't consider myself a 'techie type of person, I think it is a matter of following instructions, none of the things I mentioned need you to be a computer wizard, but they do require that you do EXACTELY what I said for it work

    Hi Rado,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I have no real computer experience and this is rapidly becoming beyond me!


    Don't mention it, it is no trouble at all


    I think I have located javaw in C:\Program files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin

    I also opened a prompt and typed echo %PATH% (replacing PATH with the location of the Minecraft.bat file) but it just returned the command. Did I type it wrong?


    You are getting closer.

    the echo command, is like a print command so when you type

    echo %PATH%

    this will only list 'locations your computer will look for commands you are trying to execute'
    Try this now, copy and paste Minecraft.exe in the same location as the javaw.exe, now create the Minecraft.bat file in the same location (replace the code according to the location)

    Let me know if that helped

    Hi, I misread your post and thought it said wordpad! I've now done this in notepad and followed the rest of your instructions. However, when I double click on the file, I get the message 'Windows cannot find 'javaw'.'
    I have Windows 7.

    Thanks.


    You may need to add the location of javaw.exe to your PATH.

    You could go to a prompt/terminal and type

    echo %PATH%

    ...and it will tell you which folders are in your path. The PATH are the locations your computer will look for commands you are trying to execute. If it cannot find the command in the current folder, it will look through each and every folder in your PATH. You will then need to locate where you do have your javaw.exe. (After installing a recent edition of Java, you really should have one somewhere)
    Once you've found it, you should add it to your path. you may try to add that folder to your path manually by typing:

    set PATH=%PATH%;c:\java\bin

    In this example, I assume you found the javaw.exe in c:\java\bin. You should substitute this with whereever you actually found it.

    Once you've done that, change your current location to where you have the .bat file .

    Hi RadoTheBado,

    I have also been encountering this problem, I have a new PC with 4Gb of RAM. I am trying to follow your solution, but when I come to save the code in wordpad, there is no 'All files' option under 'Save As type'. Is there another way I can do this?

    Thanks.


    I have windows XP, maybe it is different with other versions of windows, or maybe try Notepad and not Wordpad, as long as you don't save it under a txt file, because it won't work if it is just a text file, what version of windows do you have? , I'll try and look up how it would be done with your version of windows

    Thank you again everyone, we got it all sorted :) and now we can play for hours and avoid studying !!! :P


    I am glad you got it working but here is what I did, since I did this MC never crashes and never lags.

    MC needs 1gig of RAM to run at 100%, anything less and it could run out of memory

    -Locate where Mincraft.exe is, mine is on my desktop
    -If your Mincraft.exe is on your desktop copy and paste the following in a notepad document:

    @echo off
    start /high javaw -Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -

    jar "C:\Documents and

    Settings\ComputerName\Desktop\Minecraft.exe"

    -Replace ComputerName with your coputer name
    -If your Minecraft.exe is not on your desktop, then replace that with whatever file name you have it in
    -Click on 'Save as". NOTE in most cases the 'Save as type' field will be populated with the words 'Text Document(''.txt) ' change it to 'All Files'...It won't work if you don't do this.
    -File name Minecraft.bat
    -save in the same location as Minecraft.exe
    -double click on the file you just created, MC should start, congratulations you are now running MC at 100%

    WARNNING: don`t do this if you have less than 1gig of RAM

    Your problem has nothing to do with your pc, Minecraft is running out of memory because not enough ram is allocated to it, I'll post the steps you need to take when I get to my pc later on this evenning

    Any one know how to wire Ethos monostable Piston Conveyor Belt? It would help me a lot. Be trying to figure it out all day now -.-

    Quote from cheeseman15

    Circles? Theres no such thing... I even have a scientific explanation to back me up. Take it away, science.

    Here, listen. In real life, there are no perfect circles. It is just not possible. The equation x^2+y^2=r^2 (equation for circle) just simulates a circle. The smallest thing ever known to mankind are the strings on the string theroy, or the quarks that make up attoms. can't organize perfectly into a "circle". A circle according to many theories is just a figure with an infinite amount of points. There are many things in life that don't exist. Science is made up of a bunch of theories. Peace.

    posted a message on Should minecraft add new things OR Improve old features
    I guess a lot of people won`t agree with what I am about to post, an easy guess, considering how many posts I read everyday that sound like ``Jeb can you please add (some crap that nobody wants but me) to Minecraft``

    I strongly think that Mojang should work/improve on the existing content and not add anything at all. I am not implying that what they have added is buggy or unfinished, my reasoning:

    When the API is implemented, this will bring in an unlimited amount of content that can be added to the game without any effort or $ on their part, although this can be done now, many new comers are not comfortable with the way mods are installed, or how you have to update everything with every new MC version.

    So if it was up to me, I would concentrate most, if not all of my resources to roll out the API as soon as possible, once that is done, I would turn Minecraft into a platform (kind of the way Facebbok is... or at least used to be), this will lower the entry point to creating mods, and will open the door for almost anybody to add whatever they want.

    The game would become fully customizable, just an example:

    add/remove any mobs, or even create a whole new mob without ruining the game for somebody else, win-win.

    Haven`t seen it either, but to answer your first question , I don`t think it is just a coincidence, given the fact that 8 out of 10 did it IMO

    Quote from NAPPYHEADEDHOSE

    What we need are machines! Machines to cut trees, machines to suck up water, machines that dig out quarries, machines to fill up large digs, machines that plant crops, etc.


    BuildCraft,IndustrialCraft and Forestry will all allow you do that

    Edit: I`ve seen some pretty amazing redstone creations on youtube, maybe you don`t know how to use it (I don`t either) but that does not mean there is no point to it, learn to use it and you will understand``the point of redstone``
