Minecraft Pi Edition not working

Tue Sep 01, 2015 6:07 pm

Whenever I run Minecraft Pi edition on my raspberry pi 2 in full screen mode, the cursor wont move to some parts of the page. Does anyone know how to fix this :?:

Program a game to find that your chosen name is already taken.

Code: Select all

if gameName is already being used:
    print('You are very angry!')
    self.BlowUp
Do some research before choosing a name.

I think it's control + tab, or alt + tab to move out of the screen. Could you describe what part of the screen is giving you trouble? Is it the menu or the blocks select screen? Did you remember to disable overscan in the raspi-config?

Guys, when I run Mincraft on my Pi/Pi+ on my 42" screen in full screen mode (1080P) I find that I am was only able to select just over half the choices from the inventory (option "E"), top half only. Otherwise I've not had other issues, just got to be careful not to get dizzy.

To access the bottom half of the inventory I have to drop back to panel mode, make my selection then go back to full 1080P mode.

Would be very happy to see this feature addressed, my 5 year old Grandson starts chucking his toys about when he hits this one and I have to find yet another distraction for him. Mostly though he only dig holes in the lanscape but I want to be ready.
Share and Enjoy.

Open up your active config.txt in an editor and remove all "overscan" lines by sticking a # in front of them, save and reboot.

I thought this was a known bug. I attended a Minecraft Pi programming session run by some foundation members at the Cheltenham Science Festival and they told us not to full screen minecraft.

So Minecraft does not work in full screen? Will there be an update to fix it?

So I recently dusted off my pi B+ loaded Raspbian NOOBS setup and my daughter was enjoying Minecraft Pi for a day or two. Last night, I got around to connecting the pi to the internet and decided to run the update and upgrade codes:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade
Now, when we launch Minecraft Pi, we get the start-up screen and after a few mouse controls and clicks, we get a black window. I thought it was a display error, so I implemented the overscan suggestions as above (didn't work) and I removed the program and reinstalled it two different times with the methods below:

1. outlined in this blog: http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2013/1 ... pberry-pi/

2. running this code:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install minecraft-pi
Whatever adjustments I make, I get the same behavior: I can see the gaming window for a few seconds, but after some inputs to the game I get a black screen. Moving the window around will show the gaming window for a few seconds, but then it's back to the black window.

Any one else experiencing the same issues? Any suggestions for a fix?

Hi guys,

First post so hello to everyone :-)

I've got very same problem as GStables and Val418.
I was going to introduce my son to programming this weekend using minecraft and we have no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Serber

Hi guys,

First post here too, and I too have the exact same problem as mentioned below. When opening Minecraft (not in full screen) I see the gaming window for just a few seconds, but then I get a black screen. If I then move the screen around I receive the option to 'Start Game' and 'Create New', but after clicking these it then it returns to a black screen. I have used it before (albeit a couple of months ago) without any problem (using a rpi2), and have since tried re installing but no joy. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?

Thanks

I have received an SD card with this same issue. Are the other people here who are experiencing this issue running NOOBS or a raw image?

Okay, because when I tried to reproduce the problem with a raw image, and it worked fine. The card I have been given which has the problem also happends to have NOOBS on it.

Although I don't see what affect NOOBS could possibly have here (apart from maybe something in bootcode.bin), it seems like there might be a pattern emerging here.

Edit: Tried using a newer bootcode.bin on the NOOBS partition and it made no difference. Going to bisect the firmware now.

I'm also having the same problem. I got my raspberry pi last week and tried to install noobs and raspbian by following the web directions, and did the sudo apt-get update/upgrade that val418 mentioned. My screen in minecraft-pi appears for a few seconds, then vanishes.

Alt tabbing out and resizing the window sometimes gives me a picture back, but it quickly disappears again. (Commenting to hopefully find out how to fix it too.)

@shiftoneplus - just wanted to say thanks for working on this. Minecraft Pi is the one program that my daughter is interested in right now and any tools in the toolkit to get her interested (and keep her interest) in computers will go a long a way. Thanks!!

I've reported it here https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/1128 (although it has popped up in a few other places as well).

I'm lucky i'm not currently working with Minecraft. But I will be in a few months when Craig Richardson's Learn to Program with Minecraft book comes out.

I confirm I too have NOOBS and changes to overscan, resolution etc in config.txt did not help. I've also tested it on two different displays: TV and PC monitor and both have the same problem.
