Thanks for this. Question, and this may sound like a complete noob one, but to connect and play do you have to be on the Raspberry Pi version, or is there a free version you can run with a PC or Android tablet to connect? I have a pi and want to set it up so I can have a few local players all working on the same map, but not sure what versions we all need.
No, this is for the PC, Java version. The RPI version can also be done in multiplayer (with a different process).
For PE, you can most likely use Nukkit to host a server on the Pi.
