Pi desktop version does not have minecraft?

Tue Oct 10, 2017 2:37 pm

Hello!

I wanted to use the desktop version alongside the oracle virtualbox for my students to practice coding in minecraft, but after installing it i noticed that it is not there. I tried to install it and got the ./minecraft-pi: cannot execute binary file: exec format error.

anyway I can get this to work? Ideas?

thank you!

Could you be clear about what hardware you are basing this on, and precisely which Operating System you have installed?

You would need to run ARMHF Radpbian Stretch with Desktop in a virtual machine like QEMU.


Virtual Machine emulates x86 CPU on a machine with x86 CPU...

......the RPF Debian Jessie with Desktop is for x86 CPU.

minecraft-pi uses the GPU so will only run on a physical Pi

QEMU emulation will only emulate the ARM CPU not the GPU, so even that is a no go (I tried it)

It IS however possible to use the minecraft-pi API on a PC, using a plugin for PC Minecraft :
