Minecraft on raspberry pi (Debian)

Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:20 pm

Hello, Im not sure whether this is the right place to be posting this but does anyone know a step to step tutorial on how to install minecraft 1.6.2 onto a raspberry pi running debian (raspbein) and get it working.

I have installed minecraft.jar from the official minecraft sit (minecraft.net) and installed openjdk java run time 7, when I attempt to open it with openjdk 7 it either doesn't open at all or when it does it comes up with a minecraft error saying the following. Game ended with bad state (exit code 1) if there is any solution please let me know! thanks

That isn't very helpful since he is asking for version 1.6.2, meaning he wants full minecraft, not the pi version.


Here is a thread from over in the Networking and Servers forum from someone who set up a Minecraft server. You should be able to pick out the necessary bits as far as getting the proper java installed and whatnot.

Just an FYI though, it will not run very well due to the graphical aspect of the game combined with the processing power needed for chunk generation.

You can use the Pi version as linked above me, though that is a version based on old alpha versions of the game.

No it is not possible to get the official full version of Minecraft Client running fast on the Pi without access to the Mojang sourcecode.
ghans have summarized the story of minecraft client on pi pretty well in this thread: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 40#p285440
rymate1234 have managed to get to the client start screen, in unusable state because CPU rendering is too slow, by using the Mesa OpenGL software rendering http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... p?p=189655

spsn decided to write his own minecraft game, blocky, using OpenGL ES that can be run hardware accelerated, fast, using the GPU on the Pi : http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... p?p=211054

Cest Impossible. It is written for x86 machines, not armhf. So it won't work, and even if it did work, the Pi would be too slow to run it! Try minecraft Pi Edition, and play with the pocket edition worlds. or try hacking it! (see below)
I'm happy to help.

Well , Minecraft is written in Java. It should
work everywhere (Java software doesn't contain x86 code
per se , the JVM does translate Java bytecode to x86 , ARM
or any other instructions on-the-fly ) , but of course without
hardware-acceleration nothing useful is gonna happen
on the Pi.
