How to setup Minecraft 1.16.1 on Pi4

Sat Jul 04, 2020 4:33 pm

How to setup Full Minecraft 1.16.1 (with Optifine preview) on Raspberry Pi4

Please note :
Do this at your own risk.
If you have any doubts use a spare SD card.
I'm using the official 5.1V 3.0A power supply, with the Pi4 in an open sided case with small fan (currently off).
Should work on 2GB,4GB and 8GB Pi4.
I do not advise trying to run this over VNC.
Please make sure you are using your own valid Minecraft account.

This tutorial should work on Raspberry Pi OS 32bit and 64bit(beta)

1 Download and run setup script
This will take a few minutes, including installing Oracle java.

Code: Select all

mkdir ~/Minecraft && cd ~/Minecraft && wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/chdb4uts1fnm2bn/setupMC1_16_1_3264.sh && chmod +x setupMC1_16_1_3264.sh && ./setupMC1_16_1_3264.sh
2 Run Minecraft launcher :

Code: Select all

./runLauncher.sh
Login with Minecraft email and password
Click 'edit profile' and select use release - 'release 1.16.1', then 'save profile'
Click Play to install game
You will then receive an error ([... ERROR]: Game ended with bad state (exit code ...))
Close launcher, may need to press Ctrl-C to return to command prompt

3 Install Optifine

Code: Select all

./optifine1_16_1_G2_pre2Install.sh
Click install.

4 Run Minecraft launcher

Code: Select all

./runLauncher.sh
Select the OptiFine profile and click play. The launcher will crash, may need to press Ctrl-C to return to command prompt.

5 Edit runMC1_16_1_OptifineG2pre.sh

Code: Select all

mousepad runMC1_16_1_OptifineG2pre.sh
Update MINECRAFT_LOGIN, MINECRAFT_USERNAME and MINECRAFT_PASSWORD to your own (may need "" for special characters)

6 Start Minecraft from terminal window

Code: Select all

cd ~/Minecraft
./runMC1_16_1_OptifineG2pre.sh
Change options in Minecraft to reduce render chunks to 3.

Hopefully Minecraft should run :P

I doubt you will get Minecraft running on Win10 on a Pi.

Which Pi? How much memory? Which OS? Are you running anything else? What screen resolution? What is monitor native resolution? Have you changed any Pi config settings from initial OS install?

On the raspberry pi os arm64 beta There was a lot of lag
I tested on raspberry pi 4 4GB model running at base clock speed
I overclocked the raspberry pi 4 to 2.0 ghz
Minecraft runs as well as 1.15.2 on the raspberry pi 4
To Overclock simply go to config.txt on a seperate computer
or seperate os on raspberry pi
Also I recomend useing a fan with raspberry pi 4 while overclocked as it can get reallly hot fast
Also overclock at your own risk this method has been tested on many raspberry pi 4's
and has worked fine
open in text editor
go to line about overclock replace lines with

over_voltage=6
arm_freq=2000
gpu_freq=750

Is Optifine required for this to run? Would it run better or worse without?

Yes, Optifine is required, I believe it will run worse without.

Which Pi4 ? Is that 32 bit OS? Any more detail in the error message? Are you running anything else at the same time? What resolution monitor?

After running it several times more, i stopped getting the error message. I have no idea what happened.

I did not read this posting, after I got it working using the 1.15.2 instructions and changing the files.

I run Minecraft on a 2Gb Pi4, with the official pi4 power supply and an active cooling setup (heatsink with 2 fans).

It takes INCREDIBLY long to load. Like start a new game, the world generation easily takes 20 minutes, but once you're in the world, it's perfectly playable.

You HAVE to use a 64 bit OS. I used Ubuntu 20.04 server, and installed ubuntu MATE desktop with lighdm on it.

The ppl with memory errors: try to create a swapfile. Default the script sais 1Gb max 2Gb mem, but a 2Gb pi doesn't have that kind of memory free. Creating a swapfile might solve the memory issues. Also look at the -xmms and -xmmg params, you might change those from 1G/2G default to 512M/1G.
