Bugs

[A!]I have been having problems with creepers spawning with in my sealed homes it isn't because of a lack of light. i have even put glowstone every where that these guys been spawning and i still have come face to face with them. i have been lucky the last few times this past hour that i been in creative mode . but on my main game i been playing i have it happen on there as well and im not lucky because i am playing survival and well a creeper in my well lighted sealed home going boom isn't the best thing.. hoping this be fixed soon cause i only come across this in the xbox minecraft and not the pc --Drake feb 1 2013

[!] I loaded up my game today and the guide appeared prompting me to pick my storage device. After selecting a storage device the guide would close but the background of the start menu remained darkened and even when loading up a world, the world would remain darkened in the same way that the background was, there was no HUD on the screen, and I was unable to look up, down, left, or right.

[!] On occasion, sleeping in a bed placed in the corner of a small room will spawn mobs such as zombies and skeletons. I am well aware that mobs aren't supposed to spawn within 15 blocks of (player) without special coding (Spawner, Silverfish block). This can be rather annoying and mess up game play if you just started a game and can't kill a mob that suprise attacks you. - Nate

[!] Recently, the only structure that will spawn in the overworld is a single well, whether it be on land or in a random ocean.

[!!] when ever I play while I'm connected to Xbox Live, the game works fine. However, when I disconnect the Xbox from the Internet (I can only play online rarely, due to limited Internet) the Xbox crashes, and I'm forced to reboot the console. When I try to play Minecraft again, it says I do not have the full game. I have bought it in the Arcade Store, and when I connect to live again, I suddenly have the full game. I've tried everything, and nothing is working, and I was wondering if any of you know how to fix this. Please help :( - Riley

  • The offline issue where you are notified that you do not have the full game sounds like a license issue. You may not have the license locally stored. Try updating your license. ---- KKA

[X] Eye of enders lag when thrown into the air

[X] When you place a piston in front of a block that has a redstone charge and destroy the block, the piston will stay active without a redstone charge


[A] when you are in an inventory interface and pressed the 'whats this' button on any sort of armor (boots,chestplate, etc) all grades(leather, gold, etc) it tells you the amount of armor points it gives as if it was diamond armor (e.g leather chestplate says it gives 4 armor points, but only gives 1.5)

Whenever I have a server open and a unwanted person joins I kick them and the game will freeze this is really annoying especially if you have done a lot and have not saved it so please fix this bug

Template:Bi Simaltaniously throwing ender pearls will allow you to travel through walls. It is possible to reach the void in the nether this way by throwing them at a wall.

[X] I made a redstone mechanism that uses repeaters to turn off torches. I wired everything and put a torch at the start to see if the system worked well. The torch gave energy to the system and the torches were turned off successfully. Then I removed the torch and the redstone dust still had energy.

[X] Began a new world in Title Update 7 and I can't find nether fortresses. I don't want to changes to creative. What can I do? --Jack

When I turn on to peaceful it wouldn't let me it it put me on hard I now its hard because mobs where spawning a lot. Lucas

When I turn on to peaceful it wouldn't let me it it put me on hard I now its hard because mobs where spawning a lot. Lucas

[!!] In my world, I was playing online on my own world and I went to the nether with an Efficiency II diamond pick, and as soon as I started to mine the netherack, the game kicked my friend and said that I had "lost connection" which was weird because it was my world in the first place, and therefore we lost a lot of progress.

[!] I am unable to play any more because whenever I mine blocks they reappear until I save and exit my game. It does this in all game modes online or offline as well. Most of the time when I keep mining the same block over and over again ill keep collecting it --kragory Jan 1, 2013 same with me joe Jan 17, 2013

  • bug confirmed. same thing happened to me exept i dont keep getting the block.plus,

when i exit and save and then re-enter my world, it makes the blocks that i broke gone, but the bug keeps happening--Lolzzzzz 18:02, 29 January 2013 (UTC)lolzzzzz


[A!] When playing in my 1.3 survival world, beds do not work correctly. I can still mine them, but most of the time, I cannot sleep, even if my crosshair is over the bed. This is extremely annoying during the night and has been confirmed in singleplayer, multiplayer splitscreen, and online multiplayer.

---I was having the same problem and I solved it by killing any mobs that are in a 5 to 10 block radius of my bed... Hope that helps---- kragory

---I had the same problem even though no mobs were present. I solved this by inviting the last person who played multiplayer with me in the game. After they joined the beds were usable again.--- MattyB

[A] While playing on a friends world(on creative) we were building a timing mech utilizing a felt block and sticky piston. The sticky piston would not hold onto the felt. We tried crafting a new piston and it still would not hold onto the felt. We tried any number of configurations all to no avail -- Kevin Gamertag ARCLIGHT545 4 Jan 13

  • Was the piston a sticky piston?

[X] When my friend and I play for a while, creative mode, over the web, we have run into an issue with minecart, boats, and rail tracks. All of a sudden we cannot place boats, train-tracks, redstone, and minecarts. This issue is only fixed by quitting out and reloading. This has happened a few times. We lost a small amount of progress, as we were nervous about saving while this glitch was going on. At one point train-tracks started vanishing. A side note, we have a building that takes up 25% of the total map space, and have a lot going on inside of the building. Not sure if this effects anything.

This just happened again to my friend and I. Not sure if it has to do with too many boats/minecarts or if this has to do with too many blocks being used in the huge glass building.

---Zarnold Quigley 21:53, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

[X] When i gain experience points on Split-screen, the XP levels appear over the cross/aim thing. -themaster401

[X] Whenever I open up a workbench on a split-screen world, it lags a bit before opening the interface up. I know the lag stops you from doing the duplication glitch, but there can be another way to solve it. -themaster401

[A] I was playing in a survival game, and I had a small 2x3 dock of stone for my boat. There was a current keeping it in place. I got in and all of a sudden I died. I had full iron armor with feather falling boots. When I respawned it said I died of fall damage. --CantelmiNutin56 [gamertag]

Template:Blla Me and my friends were playing creative when my friends minecraft froze and we lost Alot of progress, this also happens when you try to kick and save too. Either way this seems to occcur most in multiplayer and started after the 1.9 update. D34D CH1CK3N

[A] When I use a splash potion of harming on an enemy and I'm in the radius of the splash and one of my wolves are around,my wolf starts attacking me instead of the enemy. It won't stop unless I attack it. 4:32, 22 December 2012

[X] Arrows frequently rebound off of entities upon contact, whether fired by the player or a skeleton. --Codpoke 01:02, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

[X] Occasionally, while sprinting adjacent to a wall, you may get snagged on the wall and seemingly merge into it, at which point you'll start suffocating. It's easily possible to step out of the wall, but it is quite an inconvenience, especially with how unexpected it is. --Codpoke 17:56, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

{{bl |a} I was in multiplayer on 1.8.2 and these bugs happened. I got teleported back home, Blocks would disapper when I placed them and some on the world was not loaded --71.237.63.175 16:42, 1 December 2012 (UTC) bluealex106

{{bl |a} when I am in a bed or hitting a bed, it creates light. So, if you had a host that couldn't sleep, but you could so the night lasted for 10 secondes, if you had no torches you could just ask the host to hit some spare beds (if you had them).

[A] In split screen mode, if both of the people are on the crafting interface, neither can craft. We can have the required items and it doesn't let us craft at the same time. This bug or annoyance has been around since the first version of Minecraft Xbox 360 edition even still in 1.8.

  • confirmed bug, but when it happens to me, it acts as if the 2nd person using the crafting table (or the 2 by 2 crafting interface) has the 1st persons items. so lets say i want to make a stone sword, and my friend is on the crafting table. if he didnt have the required ingredients for the sword, then i couldn't make it. it fixes when one person gets out of the crafting table though. --Lolzzzzz 18:02, 29 January 2013 (UTC)lolzzzzz

[X] The Halloween Skin Pack animations do not appear. I was on an online game by myself and when I was in 3rd person mode, my (Grim Reaper) character still moved it's legs and the zombie character did not have it's arms out. 173.54.113.57 22:58, 17 November 2012 (UTC)Darkeyedp7

  • This isn't a bug, this feature is actually going to be a part of the next title update. 68.46.182.213 00:48, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

[X] Void fog does not appear even when the "Bedrock fog" option is turned on in the bug-fixed 1.8.2 version. I'm 95% sure that the requirements for fog are met over my multiple maps. 173.54.113.57 22:58, 17 November 2012 (UTC)Darkeyedp7

[X] In the bug-fixed 1.8.2 version some chests and signs will be invisible,they have hitboxes, and chests still open, but some of them are invisible. 173.54.113.57 22:58, 17 November 2012 (UTC)Darkeyedp7

  • [X] hello, for the xbox version "1.8.2 bug fix" please fix minecraft (random ?) invisible chest glitch, several of my many chests are invisible. Destroying, rebuilding, chests are visible OR leaving the game (exit) and then back in the game, the chests are visible. ho, it is frustrating not being able to see inside the chests when it is open, as when other players can watch us ; (i do not play online or multi-player). Thank you by advance. --84.103.93.245 13:42, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

[A] If you trap any animal with no way out like a fence or a box after about 30 min they will despawn and this gets really annoying when you try to trap them for food. -ZachXMS

  • This is intended. Animals despawn before Beta 1.8.2, so you are obviously talking about a previous update.

[X] While I was paying on Minecraft 1.8.2 on a 1.8.2 generated world, I died from a creeper exploding. So when I ran back to my death point, the hole of the explosion was gone, and same with my stuff. But then few minutes later, I came back to the same spot, the hole was there, along with my stuff. This has happend a few times and this is really annoying.

[A] If you open a door with your hand, it pops open, no sound, no hand movement, no nothing. If you open it with something in your hand, however, it works fine.

I'm playing Survival, and every time i play it, it crashes.

[A] In the recent 1.8 update of minecraft xbox, in creative and survival, if you dig down, you will float for about 1.5 seconds then fall. I do not like how this happens and it is very annoying. please fix it in he next 1.9 update if you can. --174.110.226.32 00:41, 23 October 2012 (UTC)ChimneySwift11

[!!] I was in creative,(I was playing online as well) and when i put a sign down when i have circuit going at the same time, my game crashes, i tried again, with a different circuit, but it still crashed--Zachus II


[!!] [MP] Im running 1.8.2 of minecraft, I started a new world yesterday, built up a large home base, explored whole map. saved exited after 5hours of game play. Opened game the next day and Game crashes console after 30 seconds If I run the map in "offline" mode game operates properly. I have saved offline hopping it was a snagg in the save, reloaded online with same result. I have two maps(both fully explored) behaving the same way, they both have a large amount of sign's, they both have players in "limbo" with items in thier inventories. The One map "not fully explored", and contains no "limbo" players runs properly both on and offline. I put in bold the things these maps have in-common--IronCleric

  • I had the same problem and I've figured out what was wrong. You can't have more then 20 pistons or signs for some reason. I don't know if this is 10 pistons and signs or 20 of each. All I know is you can't have 20 of either in the 64 x 64 chunk. - Monkeymad358
  • Good suggestion... I'll check that out. But it doesn't crash offline. That would make sense if it crash out offline as well, but I'll remove signs, then fire it up online and see if i get a fix out of that.--IronCleric
  • That was the problem! I removed a total of 20 signs. And the issue is corrected! Monkeymad Thank you SO much!!!! Labels make me feel organized, but I can go with out. MOJANG I'll dance at you wedding if you fix this!
  • I'm thinking the crash has something to do with the wordfilter. I had a bunch of signs in front of me in one save game, and I could see the signs slowly going through the wordfilter (changing from "Awaiting approval" to the entered text) while it crashed. Is the wordfilter run in offline games? Probably not, because there's no "Awaiting approval" thing in there. --wwwwolf

Annoyances

[A] Time to time, doors that are activated by buttons will open and close almost instantaneously. --Codpoke 04:50, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

[A!] I'm trying to make a world of redstone, and when I use a large amount of redstone it randomly works and randomly doesn't. For example, for the ceiling lighting I use, which uses the block switcher method, it worked in a room when I use only 4 and connect it to one button. But I used the same method in another room that is much bigger, there was a total of 24 block switchers, all connected up perfectly, same as the smaller room. But when I press the button some would work and some wouldn't, then I would press it again, and they would work. And so on and so on. It was completly random. I've spent days trying to figure it out and wiring it many different ways, it's just a big inconvience. Xbox Gamertag - x WhiteKneeGrow


[A!] I have started 6 different maps now after the update: 2 with seeds, 4 without. I don't have any animals spawning. I have seen a couple chickens, 2 sheep, and dogs, that's it. But I can't eat, make leather armor, or beds, because I can't find cows, pigs, or more chicken or sheep anywhere. -Glassmonkeyface

  • In the bugfix update for 1.8.2, they fixed the mob generation code so way more animals spawn, a little more animals than I think should spawn.
  • Yeah, too many animals spawn. They can quickly overrun your world.

[A!] The game randomly crashes. I was putting a toggalble creeper face into the wall and the game just crashed. A BionicArmpit (please respond)

  • I have also encountered this annoyance. I have started 4 different worlds, all without seeds, and the only animals we find (my husband and I are playing multiplayer) are chickens and wolves. We are selecting Survival Mode, Peaceful. The onset was a recent upgrade I downloaded several days ago. Even in my existing worlds, the cows, sheep, and pigs have disappeared -ablank12
  • Don't worry about it, lady. The new generation code makes them spawn in bulk.

[X] When you go onto a Superflat world on easy,normal or hard in creative mode, after a while of gameplay, maybe about half an hour, and you fly, most of the slimes will start disappearing. They are still there, as there are particles coming off the floor and they push you, but are invisible--ThatWolfGuy

[X] Since the 1.8.2 update areas near bedrock have a very low render distance. In a small room 10x15x6h, set on bedrock, and illuminated entirely by glowstone anything beyond 6 blocks from my character appears pitch black with particles similar to the nether floating in the air. Hostile mobs do not spawn in the apparent darkness and the area reveals itself in full brightness as soon it enters the 7 block bubble of my character. Also in a very large room, 150+x150+x6h perimeter with a 72x72x40h core, set on layer 12 a dense 'fog' appears to obstruct view beyond about 15 block making it impossible to see my clock from most locations or find my way around. From an outlook around layer 25 everything in the expanse is fully visible and illuminated but from the base the outlook and everything above it can not be seen. This is not the blue nothing of unloaded chunks but a haze the dulls distant blocks and structures to nothing. Same effect in both HD and standard res, playing alone or with others, online or off. --Jeikab Edit: We're at level 6 and it's very difficult to arrange a large living space or slime trap, since we can't see anything. I see that it's intended but perhaps it could change to be unintended or maybe only affect the actual bedrock or bedrock layer? - Captaincasualty

  • This is actually intended. It's called void fog, and it was implemented to make the Void look completely black, just in case someone managed to break through it. Catnom 23:39, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

[A!] When I autosave, my game freezes for a few seconds, allows movement for about 2 seconds, and freezes for a short moment. -BritsBoy122

[A!] I have the Xbox 360 Wireless Mic. and every time i turn it on while I'm on a server, I disconnect from Xbox live. This doesn't happen on any other game, just this one. It really effects me and my friends because I normally lead a server. -zZombie gunnaZz

[A!] I don't know what triggers it, but occasionally all dropped items become invisible. Like, if you die and your items scatter, when you come back to recollect them, they aren't visible but if you touch them you can collect them. This is extremely annoying as you can't always find every item you dropped, I have lost several minecarts and even diamond because of this. - Anonymous

[A!] Occasionally while I am digging, the block I am digging reappears just after I finish digging it. I don't even get to collect the block. It has happened so much I have used up my pickax completely and I end up stuck in a deep cavern spending 45 minutes digging and filling back up to the top. I get really aggravated when this happens and I want it to stop. Thanks for reading this. HMartIsSmart 07:01, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

  • This is happening to me right now. I just updated to the 1.8.2 Update and it also started with me in a cave. I stopped mining and left the cave. However this is now happening with most blocks I have approached. I started to mine for wood and the blocks would reappear but not drop anything. This also has affected my house as I was trying to remodel it. I hope this can get fixed soon. TheBlackSun 22:15, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

[A!] Randomly, no Matter where I'm at, I hear the sound of a bow and I get hit by arrows, usually two or three. This has happened when I'm in a building or when I'm on a multiplayer server. This has killed me before and it's annoying that I'm not safe anywhere.

[A!] If you sleep in a wooden room, if any wood touches outside, no matter how lit your house is, Monsters can spawn in your home. This annoys me so much and makes it where I can't sleep without getting killed.

  • How hard is it to post in the right place and in the right order. BTW your bed is to close to the wall; just move it away from the wall 1-2 blocks. AND SIGN YOUR POST!!! --Ichi (Talk) 07:54, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This has happened to me while my bed was not next to the wall many times often on split screen. This seams like a bug, what you are talking about is different.--24.6.9.78 02:12, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

[A!] Chickens can phase through the space between a fence and a solid block.

[A!] You can't place torches on fences.

  • This is to be expected. The feature to place torches on fences was introduced in 1.7.3 on the PC and the Xbox version is running 1.6.6. --Rgamer35 02:56, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[A!] [MP] Extreme lag is experienced when you play online with a guest.

  • This happens to me every time I join someone's game, usually it works for about 10 minutes or so, then you will start to lag for like 3 minutes, then all of a sudden you cant open a door, blocks reappear after broken, and huge parts of the world just disappear and you fall off an endless edge.

[A!] When a redstone circuits is made [pulsers] they tend to randomly stop pulsing and you have to destroy it and build it again for it to work.209.30.91.83 03:06, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

  • confirming, in some cases it is extremely repetitive and it is ruining my redstone world

[A!] Redstone is glitchy, torches don't work right, pistons lag, and it just messes up a lot and I have to exit without saving but it will do it again (it's worked many times before)sometimes I even have to rebuild it completely and it still doesn't work like it should.

[A] There seems to be a significant amount of lag associated with the minecart physics. Minecarts moved with a choppy, stop-and-go motion. I could be wrong, but it looks like this problem is causing the minecarts to not only move more slowly, but also lose speed more rapidly, thus requiring more powered rails to keep them moving at a constant speed and for longer distances. Additionally, the lag causes a delay when I try to push a minecart manually. Instead of staying in front of me as I walk towards it, the minecart doesn't move until about a half second after I've already passed through it. Continuing to walk forward at full speed resulted in the minecart following just behind me instead of catching up and moving ahead of me unless I stop. --BlakLite1

[A] There seems to have been a biome shift in pre 1.8.2 worlds since the update resulting in a large portion of my map which had previously been desert, ocean and woods becoming frozen over complete with cacti surrounded in snow and ice and a pneumatic dock frozen solid. --Jeikab


[A] I was mining in my mines when I start to randomly suffocate and then die, when I back to where I died there was no gravel nor sand what happen please reply--30joe32 20:23,14 July 2012

[A] Random long grass spawning on dirt in some cave systems --SuicidalBombz

[A] When you make a T-flipflop it gets stuck after a few activations

  • Which design? I am assuming you are talking about a piston one.Pokechu22 01:53, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] if you use Pressure plates to activate a redstone circuit to open 2 doors the pressure plate might get stuck and keeps the doors open

  • Occasionally I find that pressure plates that activate one door will also seemingly jam, needing to be destroyed and replaced to return to a working state. --Codpoke 15:50, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I too have had this. It's not always with doors, pressure plates for pistons have got stuck before for me. I have to destroy and replace it. -- luc122c

[A] Manually saving after death without picking up dropped items from said death will delete those items from the world.

  • This also happens with tamed wolves if they turn invisible to the player.--Fablanire 19:06, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

[A] The Invert setting on the camera isn't saved.

[A] Coal (items?) can't be picked up if it is between 2 blocks, i.e. the line in the middle.

  • How do you mean? Like, if it's on the line between two blocks of grass? I'm trying to replicate but getting nothing here. Were you doing it online? It may just be a phantom drop issue due to a glitch in the server; happens in the PC version too. --156.26.221.54 22:10, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
  • The line between 2 blocks is that invisible line between blocks on the invisible grid for all blocks. It happened to me for like up in a tree cutting down wood and leaves and the wood just sit there on that line next to a block, but i was able to pick it up by mining the block next to it.

[A] When using buttons to open Double-Doors (One for each door) one of the doors remains permanently open. Pressing one of the buttons closes its door and it re-opens, and the other button opens its door for a second and then closes (which should happen).

  • This was a bug in the PC version, on PC it is fixed
  • This wasn't a bug it was because Notch tricked the doors to be shown as a double door needing for the on input for one and reverse for the other Darkmtbg2 18:28, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
  • had this too. can be fixed by using a lever and a NOT gate for the door that is permanantly open.

[A] Occasionally when placing a painting on wood, glass, and Stone, when you remove the painting, It shoots off the surface about 10 blocks away. When you walk over to it, you can no longer pick it up. Another annoyance is when placing it on any of these surfaces, it will disappear inside the wall/glass. :August 21, 2012: VenomSnake563

[A] powered minecarts do not push carts in front, they just lag into one another - they become conjoined and fail to move—dem youths

[A] When trying to hold down the x button to place things in a chest quickly, it will go for a while and then stop and it gets super annoying!

  • that seems to only happen on splitscreen for me. i figured out that that happens when the other player is moving or pressing a button while your holding down x. as soon as the other player moves, it stops the transfer of objects or the construction of them.

[A] sometime when you try to put down water it wont go down on most places but dose in some (very little spots)

[A] not being able to place lava wherever I want is a major annoyance to me. I have no idea where the level spawn point is since I haven't needed it. Nor can I change it since I can't go into the DAT file in Xbox (I'm sure there's a very technical way but I'm not that good!). I have caused myself to respawn 14 times since and not once has it been in my intended flow of lava.

  • I too was quite annoyed at this. I was building a mini mob grinder when i could not place the lava where I wanted to.--ThatWolfGuy

[A] Whenever I go to bed, no matter how well lit up the area around me is, no matter how high up I am! I will always without fail be attacked by a mob (Usually zombies or skeletons) while sleeping and end up having to wait for morning to come naturally.

  • The same thing happened to me however I was in splitscreen. I could prevent mobs from spawning by putting some redstone dust around the bed but that's crude and prevents the player from spawning as well.-Anonymous
  • This has happened to me in single player and multiplayer mode. All doors closed or no doors (hole in the ground) and well lit. - Fier
  • This can happen if your bed is against a wall, try moving your bed 1-2 Blocks away from any wall. --ThirstBuster
  • I placed my bed in the middle of a house, 3 blocks away from any wall, and mobs continued to spawn. Happened before the update, but only one per night, instead of every time I go to sleep. -Me

[A] [MP] If owner of dogs is attacked by another player then the owner makes the dogs sit, the dogs will hop around to attack the original attacker.

  • This really isn't a bug at all. Its a mix of the wolves AI and a graphical glitch do to a small amount of lag between the wolf acting and the system showing the wolf standing and attacking. This makes it so it looks like your wolf is sitting and bouncing around when really its running around. The only way to get a wolf to stop attacking/killing other players if you or your wolves is attacked it to kill your wolves. PLZ MAKE SURE YOU SIGN YOUR POST!!!! --Ichi 14:19, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Sometimes when jumping back and forth from my game to a buddies a lot. When i come back to my game ALL of my redstone stuff just will not work (this is fixed by turning off my Xbox and turning it back on after about an hour). And by will not work i mean; redstone torches will not turn on/off as they should; redstone repeaters will bug out in the same manner; redstone wires/lines bug out in the same manner. I am listing this as an annoyance for now as I don't know of anyone else that has this problem. But then again my buds don't do as much redstone stuff as me. --Ichi 15:55, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Sometimes there are stone dirt etc. walls that are not minable and i can't break any blocks i can only place blocks please help

  • That is the edge of the map. --Ichi (talk) 20:14, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] In multiplayer when someone who is not the host places lava near the spawn the warning message shows up on the hosts screen. this is very annoying because someone can keep placing lava down making it impossible for the host to do anything cause the message keeps popping up. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.18.152.178 (Talk) 01:55, July 7, 2012.

[A] Usually happens every time, but when two beds are put directly on the same wall in a house (usually 1 block apart) the second person to sleep seems to fall through the bed and lay on the floor (Could be the 2 player as Its only happened to my friend on split-screen and he was always second to sleep) or roll off the bed and lay on the floor next to it. When my friend decided to make a new bed and went to destroy his first bed, it split into two different pieces. The top piece was destroyed but the other half was not. And when he destroyed the other half it dropped a regular bed but when that bed that was dropped was placed it was just the lower half. This also caused any bed we made and tried putting on the floor turn into the lower half bed. Reloaded map (Didn't save after glitch) and glitch was fixed. It would probably be good to note, that VERY soon after the bed glitch was taking place the door was also split into two (as mentioned in the annoyance section) but would not go away. When shut, then sleep, it would open in the night and I would be attacked by mobs. 174.100.197.56 Anonymous

  • Happens in multiplayer too but it still lets you sleep through the night.--173.217.85.182 15:24, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • certain ways of placeing the bed also cause this--24.6.9.78 02:12, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • the door can be fixed by opening then closing again. bed can still be slept in when i tried. Also I have my wolves in my house and 2 on my bed and i get knocked out of my bed.--ThatWolfGuy


[A] When riding a minecart which hops of a 1 block ledge to another and then turns sharply damage will be done to you and if you have a set of powered rails before the drop you will randomly die.

  • Please make sure you are formatting your bug reports in the right manner and not right next to the next section/sub-section of reports. And I too have noticed this. But i think it's because you may have a 1x2 tunnel. Try making a 3x3 (9 blocks in all) tunnel. Until you have tried this I'm placing it as an Annoyance. Once you have tried this and it persist i will move it to the Bugs sub-section of Gameplay. --Ichi (Talk) 00:04, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

[A] Every time I save my game or auto-save or load a save, all actions slow down, from walking to swinging any tools and has killed me on a few occasions because creepers caught up to me an exploded. it wears off if you wait a while or stop then walk (sometimes more than once) Another thing that has happened to me more than once is I will load a save and if there are mobs pursuing me their speed will oddly INCREASE immensely. for instance, i loaded a save that had a creeper and skeleton pursuing me. even though they were about 10 blocks or so away from me the creeper suddenly bolted up to me while i was walking too slow to avoid him while the skeleton was shooting a barrage of arrows into my back. ~~Lawrence_Denword

  • This may be do to 'sinking' into the ground do to grass on a dirt block glitching. If so try jumping and also if it is that then i will move this to the Bugs sub-section of Gameplay. --Ichi (Talk) 15:47, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
  • I've noticed this too, upon loading or saving the game (and only at these times), the player's movement speed is reduced temporarily (perhaps just a ploy to invoke gamers to play for longer hours to avoid this) and enemies appear to receive a burst of incredible speed, in both pace and action after loading. --Codpoke 04:36, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

[A] When items drop on top of pistons, sometimes you will be unable to pick them up.

[A!] I had my portal blown up by ghasts, even when it was coated in 2 layers of cobble!--ThatWolfGuy

[A] When snow is between a piston and any other block, the piston will fail to push and remove the snow, as it does in the PC version.

[A] Often, when pistons push the player, the player's head gets stuck in the piston head (or a block being pushed by the piston) and will not move. This sometimes renders piston zipper elevators useless. This bug can also happen in the PC version, too. --Fablanire 19:06, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

[A] When I place a sign that says "put a minecart in and get up to 6 goodies out" the sign comes up as censored --zakattack7

[N] [A] When I look up or down when it is raining/snowing there is a little circle that is around the player and its annoying!

  • This is suppose to happen, not sure why, but I think it is to stop rain from coming so close to you, that it blocks your view. --ThirstBuster

[A] Sticky pistons don't always stick, I tried making a digital clock and the sticky pistons would not pull the cobblestone. They would unextend like any normal piston.

[A] When I break through rocks, and lava is behind them, the lava appears to not be moving, but the floor becomes covered in "invisible lava" that kills almost instantly.

[A] Everytime I try to join a friends game it tells me that im not friends with anyone in the game!My friend has tried to invite me to his game many times! And it still pops up that im not friends with anyone in the game.They said that i was in the game but on my screen it's frozen.Please help!!-Anonymous

[A] Once, when my friend and I were playing offline co-op, we tried to craft at the same time. The issue was, when I tried to select an item, I was told I did not have that item.

Arrows when shot through lava catch on fire but do not catch anything else on fire, TNT, wool, wood, etc. also when shot into a button or lever it does not react. --Spyder web15 10:47 October 20 2012

  • Arrows caught on fire are not intended to set blocks on fire. Flaming arrows were only coded to set TNT in the latest 1.4.1 update on PC and Xbox runs on 1.8.2. Also Arrows don't affect buttons or levers. - Anonymous

[A] Once, my friend logged on split screen. The only problem was; The second he spawned, a clone spawned with him. It would chase him everywhere. At any given time it was half of a block away from him. It would even act as a player, as when my friend turned quickly, he would not be able to go through himWhen my friend hit the clone, he himself took damage, with the clone becoming red.When he changed skins, the clone stayed the sameI tried killing him, to no avail. This continued until I killed him with TNT.

[A] I was playing online co-op and I loaded a world and continued in a cave we were in earlier. but when he logged to the world rain was pouring through the ceiling on his screen. this happens every time he logged on through my invite on that world.

[A] I was playing online alone in HD, on easy mode, when a creeper came and blew me up in front of a village, killing me. When I returned, all was fine until I came across several glass panes I could not pick up. The rest of the repair was easy enough, though the floating glass panes and holes in the wall were bothering me. They dissapeared after the correct amount of time. This is the first time it had happened. --Nimblebobo

When I made a new world I spwand in a void. Lucas

Bugs

[X] If you destroy a Spruce Tree in a swamp biome sometimes it will drop All Oak Saplings instead of spruce saplings Feb 17th 2013 - Radical924

[X] When a sticky piston goes down above a rail going down, pulling it back up brings the rail up, making it float in the straight position. Zeeman 00:46, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

[X] When Mycelium spreads in Mushroom biomes to regular dirt blocks grass is created instead of mycelium. - Radical924

[!] The piston block doesn't seem to be working properly. For example, I made a zipper elevator in my 1.8 bug fix world and when I tried it I got stuck in the piston halfway up and sufficated. I tried it in all modes and made sure everything was right, but it still didn't work. FIX THIS!! 16:46, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

[!] whenever i destroy a block it just keeps reapearing!!!!!!!!!and when i break the glitched block it doesnt do anything!!!! it just keeps reapearing and my duribillity just gets wasted!!!!! plz fix!!!!01:24, 11 January 2013 (UTC)lolzzzzz

  • Try placing a torch on the glitched blocks. It should cause the block to disappear permanently. You can then mine your torch and get the torch back. Note, that you will likely end up with a reappearing torch until the game is saved and reloaded or you move sufficiently far away. --Ravanux

[!] me and my friend made big castles in creative and lived in them in survival.when my friend was making his house, i placed lava down in the water and the lava glitched like crazy. instead of making cobble or obsidian, it glitched through the water and it was switching from the lava to water texture at the same time. it also spawned cobble everywhere 17:36, 17 December 2012 (UTC)Lolzzzzz

[!] I'm trying to build some awesome redstone logic circuits using lots of NAND gates, but the torches are not behaving as they should e.g.: simetimes they do not go out when being powered. I'm having trouble reproducing the bug, sometimes rebuilding the circuit helps, but sometimes it doesn't. I scanned this page and it seems that I'm not the only one. I sincerely challenge a tester to build a somewhat larger redstone circuit and you will see that it doesn't work. Is this a confirmed issue and/or can be worked around? If you have comment, solution or questions please contact me: [email protected] --87.212.107.102 20:48, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

[!] In any game, singleplayer or multiplayer, sometimes if you mine a block, it reappears, and when broken ,it does not drop anything, and reappears again. The only way to revert it is exit and save then come back. 99.162.60.127 22:20, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

  • This is usually caused by latency issues between players, check your connection and try again. If there are no problems with your connection, it could be that the host of the multiplayer session is having latency issues. This would only explain why it would be happening in multiplayer, latency shouldn't be a factor in single player in which case it could be a bug in that respect.
  • Thanks. Any signature?
    • This exact bug is happening to me on some of my maps. In single player & multiplayer (not a latency issue) the blocks will respawn on the Xbox version of Minecraft. I have saved the map, and even exitting and reloading, it's corrupted. This happened after the enchanting patch. 12/24/2012 99.130.173.188 22:37, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
    • I've noticed since the most recent patch that it has been a more common occurrence and not always showing correlation with latency issues any more, but previously, before the update and at the time of the initial bug report, that was usually the cause of the problem. 86.142.162.240 23:00, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
    • I have the exact same issue; I mine blocks and get their drops, only for the blocks to reappear. Saving and exiting does not help, nor does exiting without saving. 86.142.162.240 23:07, 30 December 2012 (GMT+1)
  • My bad didn't know how at the time; 86.142.162.240 13:06, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

[!] Sometimes, on a multiplayer world, the blocks revert to their original spot without receiving the item, causing a player to leave a game soon after that. Webtv7 01:54, 13 October 2012 (UTC) 99.162.60.127 22:20, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

[X] when my friend was underwater beneath a dock we made his oxygen bar would disappear and he could breath underwater infinitely, a couple seconds after that the oxygen bar reappeared and he got stuck in a block and died.00:16, 24 September 2012 (UTC)lolzzzzz

[X] {I have a water source with a piston dam on it 10x2x2 at sea level with a river bed that runs 10 wide 7 foward and 2 down ,and that repeats till bed rock where it ends at a mob grinder. When i shut off the water half the time source blocks are made and the water will stay on half the way down.not allways in the same place and not all the time. i have tryed thiss on 2 driffent servers in single player and multi player,also I have tryed to change the drop rate with 1 block down and 3 to 5 blocks down all with the same source block randomly appering. (Al514 21/09/2012)


[X] Me and my friend found a bug where if you place a liquid at the "edge" of the world the fluid placed would act strange (I think it wouldn't spread) and the bucket would refill itself.this could be fixed by emptying out the "glitched" bucket.(only tested with lava.)multiplayer bug. I'm not sure about singleplayer because we only play multiplayer Lolzzzzz 18:58, 3 September 2012 (UTC)lolzzzzz

[X] Sometimes if I join a world, all the signs would be blank. - HauntedFlame 25 August 2012

[X] In split-screen mining stone brick stairs in different directions will drop stone bricks, cracked stone bricks, and mossy stone bricks, depending on the direction. Not tested in other game modes.

  • I believe this is an intended feature of 1.8.2- Braveheart

[X] Mining a wooden stair from a certain side it appears to mine from the outside in, instead of vice versa. Only tested on splitscreen and only happens on one side.

[X] Since the latest patch, sticky pistons will randomly glitch out, and the block next to the piston face will not render, even though the game still thinks that they're still there. The pistons and blocks will not reappear, no matter what you do. The bug can be fixed if the player waits for a very long time. The player can move through the pistons as if they didn't exist, but when they try to move through the blocks, the player will bounce away. This has only been tested in splitscreen.--Fablanire 04:13, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] Only 20 TNT can be activated at the same time via redstone. If more than 20 TNT are activated simultaneously, then some of the TNT will instantly disappear and only 20 will blow up —Ltpringles

[X] Take a block that you would not be able to reach above you (Tested cobblestone, dirt and Netherrack) and place a slab (dose not matter which slab) on the ground. Now you will be able to reach and break the block though you will get no resource and the block will reappear shortly afterwords. -- GT: IVXX Chief

  • This is easily reproducible by standing at the furthest point away from a given block whilst still being about to reach it and destroying it, usually standing on a block's edge to reach said block. --Codpoke 15:51, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

[X] Chunks will fail to appear enabling the player to fall into the void (the void will not kill the player but will crash the client after a huge lag spike, presumably due to immense falling speed) this is a rare incident and have seen it once at the corner of the world edge. No blocks can be placed and liquids do not flow into this missing chunk.

  • I believe that might be due to lag- happens to me in multiplayer all the time, because of connection issues.

[X] Sometimes, tree leaves will not decay, even if there are no logs present, unless you place or mine a block beside the leaves (including the leaves themselves).--Fablanire 19:22, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] When filling a bucket with either water or lava, the block taken reappears shortly after.

  • I was able to recreate this bug with both water(single source on top of flat land) and lava.--68.55.74.114 05:15, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] When a piston pushes a block with a painting on it, the painting gets pushed half off the moved block(s). I've confirmed this on both SP and MP. Unknown results with sticky pistons.

[X] Sometimes after placing water, it vanishes, but you can refill your bucket even though the water is not there.

  • Also the case for lava, seems to occur more consistently in the area being your original spawn area when you started the game. Also if you interact with objects when the bucket is in this state water will reappear and disappear in the bucket per interaction (when having the bucket active). --95.97.131.78 16:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I have experienced this however it seems to be in random spots throughout my world it is kind of fun to pull a bucket of water from the sky but got a little annoying when trying to build the portal and make my farms
  • This has also happened to me and is incredibly annoying. I have also noticed that in the areas where this occurs sand makes a metallic noise when placed

[X] Pouring water may cause it to say but not spread out, and I can't make obsidian because of this—mario610

[X] Pouring water from a bucket may cause it to either leave an extra water source, or leave no water source when pouring the water out. Pouring out lava also leaves no source sometimes.

[X] If water falls on top of things that can be destroyed by it, the water will destroy the item, but not leave anything to pick up. This only occurs if water flows on top of the item from above, if the water flows from the side, it will destroy the item and leave it as usual.

[X] [MP] So far only encountered in split-screen: when player 2 attempts to pour the contents of a bucket somewhere, it disappears. Whether it be lava or water, on any terrain or in any location. It appears briefly then vanishes. Even after exiting, reloading, and second player logging in and out the problem occurs. However, player one is able to use the contents of their bucket, even in the same location as the second player with full success.

  • I have also had this problem many times, but it was in multiplayer and it was only in specific places on the map, also every one on the server was having this problem in those spots as well.

[X] I was playing at my place in MP and I was in water deep enough for my oxygen bar to show up. I stayed in the water until it ran out, but then it wouldn't let me out, so I was trapped until I died. Also sometimes my health would go down even though my oxygen bar was almost full. I had to surface. Any help? 66.189.133.48 23:40, 9 September 2012 (UTC) Anonamus

[X] I Played 4 hours and i saved the game and i came back in the Next day and it said again what is grass, sand and u now...

  • Do you mean the tutorial pop-ups which say what each block is? Also, could you please use proper English in your posts for the sake of clarity? --8bitlove2a03 17:55, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
  • What I think he is trying to say is that the tutorial style tips come up when he loads his world again. I had this problem on one server. Every time I would log back in and hit X it would pop up with the crafting tutorial that I would have to "A" through. I believe it was a Peaceful server and I was playing split screen.

[X] Sometimes blocks will not be selected when looked at (No outline, can't mine them, etc.). Looking at another face of the block may select it, but looking back to the other face again still does not work. Occurs near the edge of the map (Could be due to world limit? Confusing, however, because some blocks can be broken but others can't)


[X] Stone stairs (possibly wooden as well) sometimes glitch out and appear as a full cobblestone block.

  • I'm having this issue too. Two stairs next to each other are blinking between stair and cobblestone texture. They are still able to be walked on though. --156.26.221.154 22:15, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
  • This is the same for wooden ones as well
  • This has happened to me before, it was slightly annoying but I fixed it by looking back and forth at the stair a few times.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 07:56, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When placing a water block that has been obtained from the ocean it disappears but when I get it from a cave source it's fine.

  • I'm having a similar problem with Lava obtained from the surface pools in Multiplayer.
  • YouTube has a few good videos up demonstrating the issue and related behavior labeled as water bug. --95.97.131.78 16:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

[?] Leaves often go unrendered for some people, causing trees to seem leafless, and people to walk into and bounce out of areas without a clue why. So far I've only encountered it while playing on others' worlds. Both the host and client players have been susceptible to the issue. Have had instance of both host and I being unable to see the leaves while another client could.

  • Have experienced this from both a client and a host perspective. The leaves can usually be seen from the host's side but can still be broken by the client's even if they cannot see them. --156.26.221.154 22:20, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I have also had this problem while on my friend's world. It seemed to go away when he was close. --Jon85F
  • I have had this problem as well. If they are jumped on, you become stuck, the game lags, and you can only get out if someone else breaks the invisible leaves or by waiting there for a RIDICULOUSLY long amount of time. --KingConor647

[X] Minecarts seem to have poor collision detection causing minecarts with furnaces to phase through other carts instead of pushing them, I cant narrow down exactly what is causing this but when my furnace cart tries to push another cart up a ramp it stops moving for a bit while the two carts seem to try and occupy the same square before the furnace cart goes through the regular cart and continues on up the ramp

[X] If you manage to gain air from a very small air pocket,only a pixel deep, you will drown as if you hadn't, even with the extra bubbles on your HUD. --94.9.219.145 14:50, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Confirming this, also happens if you leave the game with 1-2 bubbles left, then reload it on a different difficulty. -50.96.227.250 00:08, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] When mining with the last use of a pick before it breaks, sometimes the block you are mining will not drop. I have noticed this while using both stone and iron picks, as well as when mining coal and redstone respectively. --174.70.177.127 22:05, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This has happened to me every single time I've broken a pick since I first got the game. It's quite annoying.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 07:56, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This only happened to me with picks(always) and the occasional shovel.
  • This occurs if the item you're mining requires the specific tool you're using, I can't help but think this is how the game's supposed to be. --Codpoke 15:47, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

[X] Mob Spawners in Dungeons display only pigs models inside them but will spawn zombies or skeletons. Unsure if this affects all types of mob spawners.

  • That glitch used to be in the PC version but now its fixed in 1.2.

[X] Lava duplication glitch. Can be done by placing, then rapidly picking the lava back up with multiple different buckets. Will provide link to YouTube video demonstrating it, but I'm not posting it here unless requested by someone from 4J, because people who exploit glitches instead of reporting them don't deserve additional views. --8bitlove2a03 18:41, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Wooden doors may split in half, with the top half closed and the bottom open (or vice versa). Trying to open/close one half of the door will reconnect the halves of the door for a few seconds, then it will split again. This usually only happens after playing in the world for a long time (over an hour). Returning to the Xbox 360 Dashboard and launching the game again fixes it temporarily. --A halfrican guy 03:19, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This happened to once me, but all I had to do was close the door and it was fine.
  • This happened to me also and it was fixed like the above comment it was split screen wooden door after playing for twoish hours --rht21
  • This has happened to me a handful of times, but like the previous commenter, I fixed it just by closing the door.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 20:33, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This happened to me when I put a pressure plate on a piece of wool next to a block with an iron door on it. It caused the door to look open but not allow me to pass through. Then it was half open and half closed. My friend and I kept trying to figure out what was wrong and when I changes the wool block with a wood block with a pressure plate on top, the door worked.--Anonymous 20:09, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This has happened to me once with an iron door. The top half closed while the bottom remained open. Again, the issue was resolved by reopening and closing the door.

[X] When a tool breaks, the block you are mining does not drop any resources. (If you mine diamond on the last use of an iron pickaxe, the diamond doesn't drop.)

[X] In online mode, blocks do not appear to be dropped when mined (but will still appear in inventory when you walk over where they would've been dropped). Online mode also prevents mobs from spawning at all. I'm not sure if I have a corrupt world or something or if others share the same problem.

[X] When putting two doors together, (wooden or iron) the door on the right will be inverted. When you push the button next to it, it will close, then open, instead of opening, then closing. Also repeaters require redstone dust going directly into it, much like a piston. This makes building with redstone dust harder to fit in smaller spaces. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 173.74.167.4, 16:59, July 4, 2012 (UTC) (Talk) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~

  • The thing with the doors IS NOT a bug! It's do to the way the games base code is. So please stop posting it as a bug. However the repeaters i think is a bug. That is the ONLY reason I'm not removing this post! And please read the instructions before posting so i can stop fixing formating errors. --Ichi (Talk) 01:11, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I think there is still a bug or a problem (hard to show without images ; i have no faceb**k, and no live ; and nothing now to take a picture properly) because i can not place two doors side by side separated by a wall of dirt + sandstone or i want this 2 doors : two gates (a door by staircase) to block two symmetrical staircases (a block of width) in a tower. In fact, this is the coordinates that are problematic (?), because in my case, the two doors (iron) are separated by a block (a wall of dirt + blocks of sandstone = stairs symmetric in a tower) but not in the same place that causes the problem. The two doors opens as expected when activating their respective 2x2 buttons (rather than one door closes when we presses the button and stays open by default), if the two doors in front are of course "separated by a wall" but has a place that does not causes a problem (good place found by trying). Improving the gaming experience ; construction symmetric and or accurate : should be able to use a data bit to choose what we wants by default : door open or closed. Also should be able to choose the direction of opening of door and on which side you want the hinges ; would be very good and effective for the coffers also (including coffer (1 or more) on a pedestal in the middle of a hall for example ; without walls so). Please and thank you very much. --84.103.93.182 19:01, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When a block is mined with the proper tool then is switched to something else the block will reappear for a few seconds then disappearing. This also causes a duplication bug with furnaces.2.222.138.93 22:30, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] If you set a tree on fire, and then try and mine a block of wood that’s on fire, the graphic of the piece of wood falling will glitch for a little bit. -Thirster42

[X] When pushing sugar cane with a non sticky piston from above the piston disappears and cannot be re-obtained unless quiting and loading world again. Only tried in MP so not sure if it occurs in SP. Also unsure if pushing from the side causes piston to disappear. Also not tried with a sticky piston -I3 I I2 C H

[A] When players can`t build or mine they cannot, shoot a bow, eat, open chests, dispensers. I wish they would fix these for my hunger games server.

[A] Sandstone sometimes acts as a low light source, emitting a small amount of light. This "light" goes away after mining the sandstone, and doesn't return upon replacing the standstone block. (Only happens to me in SP)

[A] The MossStone sprite isn't updated like cobblestone. ~Alozec

[A!] Blocks change to gravel when reloading map after save and exit. I am working near the edge of the map (within 20 blocks of the northern edge). I mined out an underground room and laid stone for the floor. Upon loading the map, large sections of the stone floor render as gravel. I mine the gravel and replace with stone but after save/exit then reload it reappears and I repeat removal and replacement. It happens every time. The pattern of the gravel is different each time, but it is always around the same area. --

[A] Every time I mine one specific row of blocks, a major game lag occurs, only with that one row, and when i try to place a block there, there's about a two second freeze in the game before the block is actually placed.

[A!] When playing a world with 3 or more people on Xbox Live, signs, chests, and fences will randomly become invisible and cannot be fixed with a block update. This is very annoying and needs to be fixed. 1.8.2 76.29.235.220 23:54, 24 November 2012 (UTC)Random_Hand

  • As far as I know, this is expected behavior of the PC version (since I never played the XBox 360 version, this is all I will type on this subject) --like2omg 23:19, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Same as in PC version. Therefore, not a bug, added [?] . Everystat13 23:24, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

[A] You cannot place a sign and exit out of the text menu immediately, because it will leave the "awaiting approval" on the sign. Instead, you have to edit at least one line of text.

  • I was able to exit out of the text menu immediately, by pressing the "B" button.

[A] Signs sometimes go back to the "awaiting approval" temporary message for no apparent reason (I've seen this on two occasions)

  • I have seen this too. Happens when a laggy server saves. ~~ signed by Brickman2011 ~~ 22:13, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

[A] Note blocks have a very poor playing distance.

[A] When mining a wooden slab with an axe compared to a pick-axe, the axe takes longer than the pick axe. That also occurs in the current PC version. Maybe it is supposed to be like that but it doesn't make much sense to me. And I personally, would like to see that changed.

  • Plz make sure to add all new bug reports to the bottom of the page. And this is an Annoyance not a Bug. It will be moved accordingly until it is conformed as a Bug. But yes it is very annoying. AND SIGN YOUR POST!!! --Ichi 21:20, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This is a bug as noted in the PC bug section that was fixed in one of the snapshots. It is because the game thinks it's a stone slab. Vote for upgrade to bug Zmr333 14:49, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] If you have a TNT block on the diagonal to a covered lava block the TNT block will sometimes ignite and explode. ~~Radical924 July 7, 2012

  • I think lava has a small radius around it where it can ignite blocks, I've had mineshafts with wooden supports on top of obsidian that keeps burning because of the lava under under the obsidian layer. I'd try to keep lava 3 or more blocks away from flammables. --LizardTail58

[A] If you place a 1x1 painting on top of a button, possibly more items, it will be unable to be hit off, same with the button so you have to destroy the block they rest on. This may be an annoyance, but still a bug nonetheless. ~~AmazYn HD July 12, 2012

[X] If 2 pistons crush a dirt block it will drop redstone dust

EpicDuk9741 September 2, 2012

[A] When Water destroys wheat for example (i've got a big wheat farm) Wheat within 16 blocks will be destroyed and collected correctly by the water. But Wheat which isn't within 16 blocks will be destroyed by the water but no wheat item drops. This means, that things destroyed by water won't drop their items outside 16 blocks. If you drop a item by yourelf, the item will be collected by the water and transported correctly. This is annoying when you've got a big wheat farm and you lose a lot of wheat. Sorry for bad English ;)

Painful Ending, September 12, 2012

If you click left and right trigger at the same time with a block in your hand there is a chance that you will place the block but destroy the block beneath it and if you destroy the block you placed there will be a pitch black spot on top of the block that was below the block that was destroyed. I know that this works in at least creative mode.--Jamesgg521 19:05, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Can confirm that clicking both trigger buttons will simultaneously destroy a block and place a block on the side of the block the player was looking at but have also found this to be rather useful in creative mode for building away from a particular structure.--SandJosieph 09:17 20 December 2012 (GMT)

[A!] hello, mushrooms functioning since version 1.8.2 (buggy and bug fix) minecraft xbox, is a problem. Thank you for adding a weedkiller (grass and mushrooms separated, perhaps) in to manufactured objects and thank you allow weedkiller to add with blocks manufactured ​​to prevent the growth of the treated blocks. I grow red mushrooms on levels 4/5, 15, 25, 35, ..., (xx5), and i grow mushrooms brown on levels 10, 20, 30, ..., (xx0) everywhere in my world. The height of ceilings is 3 blocks everywhere in my world, and floors, and roofs are 2 blocks of thicknesses, but with arrangements and local exceptions. Thank you to let it grow mushrooms as before, with an option (one or more), else it destroys some projects. It is not logical that the mushrooms stop growing for arbitrary reasons (5 MAX = 9Wx9Lx3H) ; in order to avoid hate the game, change it please, thank you very much in advance. (The black fog had destroyed my enjoyment of the game (before the addition of the option to disable it), but add the option for individual worlds and not globally, and with options like mushrooms). Thanks extreme for the enhancements of pleasure of playing. --84.103.93.117 14:38, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

[A] I was loading a fully functional TNT cannon in a world created in 1.2. When the mushroom update came, some TNT set itself on fire spontaneously and destroyed part of the cannon. I had no fire-lighting items in my inventory. When I cleared the cache it did not happen. Some burning netherrack was about 5 blocks away. 84.13.135.158 11:48, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Fixed/Skipped

[A] SRugar Canes are solid (You can't walk through them). (Wasn't this true on the PC and this isn't a bug?) On the PC version, Sugar Cane can indeed be walked through. However that might be something they want changed for the 360 edition, or just due to the fact that it's still using version 1.6.6(I think) from pc Confirmed glitch unique to 360 edition

  • when I crouch over lava or fire I take damage but do not catch on fire.

[X] i made a underground water canal and every time a run a boat of the exact spot the boat breaks down causing me to start swimming. i have demolished this area and built again and it still does it. and also a block might get stuck underneath another block after it has been mined. And i mine around it and it still stays stuck and it wont move at all it just stays how it was. Spyliam 121.74.86.164 23:59, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Crafting, inventory, and interfaces

Bugs

[X] When you try to sleep in the bed you last slept in, you aren't given the option to sleep (very uncommon, and only seems to happen in the middle of the night, after mining a lot of blocks, like trees, or remodeling the interior of your house). Perhaps that won't be too big of a deal, but breaking the bed won't help, and not every house has multiple beds or a nearby fort, so I'm labeling this a minor bug instead of an annoyance since you might die and lose your stuff trying to reach another house (most people I bet would rather not sit there for 5/6 minutes, and I can't blame them). If you want to downgrade this to major annoyance because you disagree on the severity of this bug, feel free to do so. Current version is PC equivalent of 1.0 -Vince

[X] when one person enters a crafting table and someone else enters the same crafting table you cant craft what you want to craft.even if you have the ingredients. for example,(this is what happened to me) when I found 20 diamonds in the "worstseedever" world seed, we split the diamonds(I split it up because we made a promise that if we find diamonds, we split them.) after we got an equal share of diamonds I wanted to make a diamond sword. My friend was using the crafting table and I was too lazy to get wood, so I used the same crafting table as my friend and it wouldn't let me craft my diamond sword.splitscreen bug.Lolzzzzz 19:17, 3 September 2012 (UTC)lolzzzzz

[!!] Opening inventory while using a portal will crash your game.

  • This is strange in the PC version it doesn't let you open your inventory.

[!] When using the inventory, after the tutorial text pops up, I am unable to exit the inventory, and must go to the dashboard.

  • Happened to me when i got the necessary items after opening the crafting menu (crafting a stone sword, I had one cobblestone so another player gave me some. All the necessary items were no longer highlighted red, but the output sword was.
  • If you turn off/unplug your controller, then turn on/replug your controller it will solve this problem.
  • It doesn't solve the problem. After the inventory bug happened once, the inventory stays frozen each time and is practically useless. Unplugging/Replugging the controller just closes the inventory.
  • I had this problem as well, to fix it i played the tutorial and after completing the inventory tutorial in the tutorial world i saved and exited and went back to my other world the game read that i completed the inventory tutorial and no prompt was given. When i didn't save the tutorial world it didn't work.

[!] When I try to craft in my Crafting Table,it will either say that have the right materials to craft it but the item will not craft (it has an exclamation mark over the finished product but not the materials needed), or it will say that i do NOT have the correct materials even though I have the materials in my inventory/hand. This is REALLY annoying. To fix it you must back out of the Crafting Table several times (sometimes one time) and keep trying to craft the item. This also happened to my friends so I bet someone might have already reported this. -Minecraft Geek58219

  • Ok dude first off: This was WAY off from being posted in the right place. Second: Please make sure you sign with --~~~~. And last: If you think someone has posted this before DO NOT POST IT. Look it up then post it if you CAN NOT find anything on it in the forums or wiki. --Ichi (Talk) 05:08, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I encounter this same bug frequently. Sometimes it's the item I'm trying to craft, and sometimes it's an ingredient or two, and sometimes it's both. I think the most frequent time it occurs is when you craft several of the ingredients and immediately attempt to craft a new item with those ingredients (say, Wood -> Wooden Planks -> Sticks -> Signs). I'm not sure, though. --Cat333Pokémon 11:53, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] When Smelting 64 iron ore it only produces 1 iron ingot

[!] I saved and quit and now when ever i host it my inventory and all my friends inventories are gone. --71.218.12.142 19:12, 17 July 2012 (UTC)missile car

  • Bumped up to Bug from Annoyances. --Ichi (Talk) 13:09, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] If you place any object that can be made into a block (diamond, iron, gold, lapis lazuli) into a row of 3 anywhere in your inventory, and only 3, you can make it into a block and convert back to ore, and you get 6 free.

  • I tested this with Steel, Gold, and Lapis, each with multiple configurations and empty/non-empty inventories. I was not able to reproduce this bug in SP, but I haven't tested it in MP yet. Also, this bug, if it exists, should be downgraded as it wouldn't crash the game. --Doug

~ :* This is a very old bug that was fixed in the first update. I'd request it to be removed if I knew how. 70.162.247.236 23:44, 22 January 2013 (UTC)Thegreenrobby

[X] When retrieving two or more stored leather from a chest, one disappears.

  • This didn't happen for me. Maybe it's a single-player bug?

[X] When interacting with a furnace, the interface freezes after closing out of the tutorial text.

[X] when you have double doors and you try using Pressure plates it doesn't work and one door is always open and one door works ok. Can you fix this?...[X] there wooden doors and no redstone.

  • This always happens, it can be fixed by inverting the power of the open door with a redstone torch.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 20:30, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
  • When inverting the doors using a red stone torch, the door won't move at all.--Walris007 00:33, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When a tool breaks, the block that you are mining doesn't drop itself (i.e. If you are mining diamond on the last use of an iron pickaxe, the diamond will not drop but the pick will break) Zmr333 14:56, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

  • The tools used for mining blocks causes a particularly unpleasant problem when they disappear = worn tools = tools at the end of life. The blocks mined is destroyed, but gives no element to retrieve. I hope that this is a bug concept and not a desired action deliberately. Thank you, please, to overcome this problem. --84.103.93.182 11:50, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Sometimes the game it won't let me craft certain items, even if I have the materials.

  • I've had the same issue several times. Sometimes it shows the ingredients with an exclamation mark, sometimes no mark, but still won't craft it. In most cases I was able to close and reopen the crafting dialog, switch tabs and switch back, or move the item from the quick bar into inventory to get it working again.
  • I've seen this happen when split screen play is enabled, sometimes the server seems to mix up the players inventories.
  • This can be duplicated by having two players in splitscreen mode both open the same crafting table with one of them having the needed ingredients and the other not. Easily worked around by having the second player exit the crafting table.

--95.97.131.78 12:56, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

  • I've had this issue when the required materials are in two stacks, one in inventory and other in quickstrip. Crafting will be successful until quickstrip stack is exhausted. Crafting will then show materials not available, even though there is another stack of materials in inventory. Closing / re-opening crafting window fixes. --ArcaniX5696
  • ArcaniX5696 is correct. I've had this problem, and closing the crafting interface and reopening it fixes it. Repeat this until it lets you craft this, as it is unlikely but possible that it can happen a few times

[X] Bucket empties when the furnace is opened making it impossible to use lava as a furnace fuel.

  • Haven't encountered this myself, however it does sound an awful lot similar to the disappearing water bug, where water is not placed but can be picked up and reappears in the bucket when you open a door for instance. --95.97.131.78 15:24, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Placing buckets of lava inside a furnace results in loss of the bucket. Also, Buckets of lava do not smelt 100 blocks as they are supposed to. Once the product is removed from the furnace the bucket of lave disappears regardless of how many blocks you smelted.

  • Confirming the disappearing buckets when using them in the furnace (is this behavior by design?), with regards to them not melting 100 blocks that seems related to the fire slowly dying when there is nothing to melt (i.e. the fire continues to be consumed when there is nothing to do, seems logical to me). --95.97.131.78 12:50, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Disappearing buckets in furnaces were not fixed in Beta 1.7.3. ... They were fixed in 1.3.1.(vote to downgrade into Annoyance) --pierrotboy13

[X] When sleeping if you open your inventory character appears sideways.

  • Not a bug, your character is sleeping, therefore the picture in your inventory shows him that way. The picture in the inventory is just a real-time picture of what you're doing.

[X] The furnace doesn't always work for the owner of the world, you can put things into them, however it won't do anything. Happened to me a few minutes ago, and was happening to a friend every world he used a few days ago. - Alanna

[X] [MP] Whilst playing with a friend who is logged in as a guest, any items placed in a chest by that guest occasionally disappear on loading up single or multiplayer. Happened on two separate occasions.

[X] Unable to 'whiten' colored wool using bonemeal. --K

  • Not a glitch, no wool other than white can be colored.
  • The game does say that bonemeal can be used to bleach wool though (turning any color wool white). --95.97.131.78 16:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Using bonemeal on colored sheep turns them white.

[X] Sometimes I try to use a crafting table or bed and it won't let me click on it and it maybe delayed or sometimes it just doesn't work.(Xbox multi and single)

  • This may be do to lag (even in single player there is still a bit of lag at times) Try clicking on it then waiting a few seconds then try again if it doesn't open. The game sometimes takes a little to see that there has been a change or action performed. --Ichi 08:34, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] While crafting I have 64 bricks, but it only registers having 1.

  • Can you be more specific? Did you duplicate the bricks through the dispenser cheat? Singleplayer? Multiplayer? Clay is extremely rare so having 64 of them is quite the luxury. --95.97.131.78 11:59, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Try picking up all the items by pressing the "A" button. After you do that press and HOLD the "X" button until the whole stack is replaced into a new stack or slot. --Ichi 09:51, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When playing multiplayer when i try and join in the second player will be there but I can not move. I can move forward or backwards but I can not turn. -- Sassy Unicorn

  • Had this happen too. Not a bug. Go to Game Menu> Options And raise sensitivity. --MarbolGames

[X] Only on a particular profile, the HUD is not displayed, and the player is not able to look up, down, left or right. CptSoap09

[X] Crafting colored wool always requires a dye and WHITE wool (You can only craft white wool using strings) -- MediApino

  • Not a bug :P

[X] In the single player menu when the game is updated the menu buttons are missing to tell the player how to delete a save, join a friends game, etc... and in game the option to share a pic is missing~~Radical924 July 6 2012

Annoyances

[A] When you remove wooden stairs they turn into one wooden plank.

This is not a bug. In version 1.6 this was done on purpose. Not a bug, requesting removal. --Moxxy 15:34, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
It's labeled an annoyance for a reason, and this was changed in later versions anyways. - Asterick6 (talk) 22:03, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Splitscreen font size. Items in interface's (excluding Hotbar) are small and very hard to differentiate from each other, it is also fairly difficult to organize items and generally find items because of this (the little text box helps a bit but its still annoying having to sift through all of the boxes to find your items) [*note* I'm playing on a SD TV Estimated W:.75 Meters Length: .80 Meters] Gamabunta00 18:37, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

  • YES, this is very true on splitscreen. The text is ridiculously small, even on large TVs - I am surprised more people aren't complaining about it. We sit on the floor so we can read it properly. :<

[A] The snap-to in the interface is extremely annoying, even on high sensitivity. Sometimes it takes me a while to get off of a single spot. Want an option to turn on/off the snap-to. --Jon85F

[A] The description for slabs is incorrect,it says: "used for compact staircases" that's the stair description.Samamstar12345 14:09, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] I've noticed that in any crafting table (and in any console), There's a very annoying glitch where even if I have the materials to create a dye/wool, It takes multiple times of opening, and reopening the crafting table to create the dye/wool.VenomSnake563


[A] MISTAKE!I've noticed that in all game types on my Xbox, (Including two other of my friends' consoles) I've been unable to create various kinds of dyes, INCLUDING: Cactus-Green, Brown, Cyan, and a few others. User: VenomSnake563

  • You're not doing it right. You put Cactus in a furnace and you will get Cactus Green. Please research before posting from now on. --Ichi (Talk) 13:50, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Fixed/Skipped

[F] Crafting a Cake does not return the buckets.

[F] [MP] If one player puts something in a dispenser and another person destroys it whilst the other player is looking inside, it will duplicate the thing and one of it will be infinite.

Mobs & animals

Bugs

[X] Animals despawn constantly when they are not supposed to. For example: I had a chicken and a squid blocked off in there own separate areas and both seemed to despawn when I came back. - Radical924 Feb 19 2013

[X] Sheep do not seem to be growing there wool back in my survival peaceful game in the swamp biome, it has been 5 days. ( I am not sure if it is due to the gamemode, biome ,difficulty etc... ). There is tall grass and normal grass for the sheep to eat. - Radical924 Feb 19 2013

[X] Endermen don't make their teleporting sound effects unless you shoot them with an arrow, hit them with a fishing rod(which causes them to teleport every 0.05 seconds) or if they are in rain

(a) On the new 360 update i have found there is a klimit to the number of snowgolems you can place. In most of my worlds the limit is 9 and as soon as you exceed the limit, the newest snow golem will not spawn properly and will die off imediatly leaving behind only snowballs (no pumpkin).

(a!) I have had sevaral moments where chickens will spawn in my large farm. There is only cobble walkways and farmland with crops on it. These chickens then walk over seeds destroying them and making you start over sevaral times. -nate


(a!){bl|f} been having a big problem with chickens, they keep despawning in my seed, i have a huge farm area, section is guarded by a huge spider proof wall. there is a part i keep my pigs, cows and sheep in but i have since built the chickens there own little area in my farmland and they still despawn. At first i thought this had to do with the mob rates, but i have killed off huge #'s of passives and kept it in peaceful to test it to no avil. if i try to breed by egg only it isn't as bad but it is still too hard to keep chickens that way too. I have a second issue i will type under this that is related. (no user account, contact via [email protected])

  • I have that issue too. Same with your breeding issues. Like you, my animal farm is adjacent to my mob spawner. Breeding 20/25 blocks away seems to fix it. Perhaps there's too many mobs in that chunk. -Vince

{bl|a!} when there is too many passive mobs, maybe jsut mobs in general, passive mobs will not breed, mainly after i grind my mob spawner trap, i have to turn it to peacefull mod and soemtiems kill other passive mobs to breed, related to this, when there are to many spawns and you mine a block it lags and causes it to disapear and reapear, the stronger the block the longer it takes to update, this is normally fixed by cutting down on my farm that is why i post it here(no user account, contact via [email protected])

[!] Hostile Mobs will sometimes spawn inside enclosed *well* lit areas when sleeping in a bed. Torches surround my bed every two blocks on all sides, yet I woke up with a Skeleton Archer standing on the block immediately beside my bed. (I've only played MP so not sure if this is an issue in SP) --ArcaniX5696

  • This is referred to as a "Nightmare", and means either a monster is too close to your bed, you don't have a complete house, or your bed is too near a wall. ~~ signed by Brickman2011 ~~ 00:57, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
  • The problem can be solved couple of ways: 1st - you should make iron doors. 2nd - barricade your wooden doors with dirt (as silly as it sounds) -morlok63 (Russia 15.05.2012 23:22)
  • The problem can also be solved by covering the beds on all sides(including the top) forming a 'coffin' which has worked for me in single and multiplayer.
  • I have also found another way to fix this. By placing your bed any block distance away from the wall it is placed against, and away from other walls, has always worked for me.
  • Upgrading to major, as this bug defeats the whole purpose of having a house in the first place. Workaround is to double layer everything.
  • This got a lot worse after the update!!! Shaunj77 June 20th 2012
  • I have had this problem in split-screen, my house was completely secure, iron door and made of stone, but I kept being attacked in my sleep. My ceiling was as low as it could be, but when I dug the floor out one block, the problem stopped.
  • This seems to happen when the room is enclosed with double doors, or a pair of doors connecting at the door knobs. Try replacing the double doors with a single door, make sure the room is fully enclosed, and it is well lit and the problem should stop.
  • I find the placement of the bed to be irrelevant as I have numerous houses in which the bed is directly adjacent to a wall. The solution I found was lighting all sides of the house up, including the inside, outside, roof and if there are any, close proximity mines or caverns. Perhaps this won't suit everyone's experience however. --Codpoke 05:20, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Correct me if I am wrong, but this sounds intentional to me. I don't think wooden doors are going to stop hostile mobs. Iron doors prevent this. Also, blocking the doors, as stated above, works as well.

[!] When you push mobs to walls, they get killed (but only shows the animation) and no health is lost. I tried feeding my dogs that fake suffocated and IT DID NOT EAT! This happened after the 1.8.2 update came out. P.S. No attacked sound played. Just only the animation. My dogs went to their standing position whenever they fake suffocate. 75.93.146.58 23:09, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

[X] Occasionally, hostile mobs will not take fall damage. I have a disk maker setup that uses fall damage to bring the creepers to a one shot kill. The mobs fall 20 blocks onto a fence post. The fence post has a water stream over it (2 blocks from the source) and usually fall damage is taken. However, when its not I tend to have large portions of glass tubing destroyed when the odd healthy creeper takes an arrow and blows up the offending skeleton. Not only creepers; skeletons and zombies also come through with full health. Has occured both in SP and MP plays on the Xbox edition. [user: TheKillerBuddha]

[X] Passive Mobs sometimes can't be damaged when they are standing in Tall Grass.

[X] You can not ride a pig that has a saddle equipped.

  • I was able to do this just fine, you have to target the pig and left trigger it to ride it. Trying to get your saddle back is another matter, killing the pig doesn't give you the saddle back. --95.97.131.78 16:21, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] I finally found a slime and could not cause any damage or get any reaction when hitting it with an iron sword. I managed to split the slime down to small cubes with a flint and steel by burning it. The small slimes can be attacked and killed, but large slime could not.

  • I've only encountered slimes twice, but both of the times I was able to kill them using my iron sword easy, only once it split off in a second slime. --95.97.131.78 16:21, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Spiders will sometimes lose their ability to move when they are hit in tall grass.

[X] Slimes will not drop slime balls if the person who kills it is using a skin from the skin pack.

  • This is no longer in affect. I only use the skin packs, and my slime farm produces PLENTY of slime balls. If you overkill a slime using a sword, you'll get no drops. However, using a bow and arrows works quite effectively.

[X] I have had several instances in which mobs could not be damaged. Have had instances of being unable to kill a squid underwater (attacking with sword), a skeleton (attacking with fists), and a zombie (also with fists).

  • I constantly have this problem. When I attack the top of the head and the feet the mob turns red but takes no damage. Mostly this happens with Zombies.
  • I also had this problem when attacking a skeleton, I attacked its head and it turned red but took no damage.
  • I had this problem with a creeper. It wore out my sword after repeatedly hitting the top of its head and it took no knock-back. It also turned red. Eventually I had to kill it with my axe.
  • This seems to occur when attacking a mob through a 1 block high space. You can still hit it with a bow. This seems to be related to the mobs on servers being impossible to hit bug on the PC.
  • Able to duplicate this, especially when attacking mobs that you can barely see (i.e. attack a zombie's outstretched arm over the corner of a gravel stack) and happens quite often when attacking spiders over a fence

[X] Pigs and spiders when they have a single block above them and are hit, will not move but just flash red and cannot be killed.

[X] Hostile mobs that are unable to attack back while being attacked with a melee weapon will take no damage from hits. Example: A skeleton is behind a wall with only its feet exposed. You strike its feet. It turns red but is not knocked back and takes no damage.

  • I've experienced this as well, in multiplayer. Hitting the mob over and over never kills it, but eventually wears out my sword.
  • I think this is the game stopping us from hitting through blocks(like around corners and such) the game might see it as illegal and simply not damage the mob
  • This annoys me when it turns the mob red and wears out my tools with every strike, but causes no knockback or damage whatsoever.

[X] Ghasts spawn in large numbers in the Nether, instead of rarely like in the PC version

[X] Creepers seem to detonate much too quickly - at least when compared to the current PC version. They cannot be hit with a melee weapon without triggering their detonation because you're too close to them, whereas this is quite possible in the PC version, including the one the current Xbox 360 version is based on.

  • I backdated my PC version to Beta 1.6.6 to check, and searched some creepers, and I was definitely able to hit them a couple of times without moving; on my Xbox, I need to hit them quickly and then run away asap to make them cancel their explosion before I can strike again. --84.195.69.12 10:17, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Upgraded to a bug. It's a very significant amount --Moxxy 03:57, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Maybe I was wrong; it might not be a bug, but simply a way to make creepers more dangerous foes. While I do not understand why they would want to do so (creepers were deadly and sneaky enough to keep the game balanced), I do not consider it a bug anymore since I've seen the following loading screen tip (or something like this): "On hard difficulty, creepers will hardly ever cancel their detonation." This does not apply to the PC version, in which the difficulty setting only affects the amount of damage inflicted by a creeper blast, and not the radius nor the triggering distance, nor the behavior of the creeper when you flee after it has been triggered. Hence it might not be a bug. 84.195.85.66 12:33, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Occasionally when killing a spider that is on a waterfall will cause it to stick in the place it was killed in and will not move. (Not sure if its the same with other mobs.)

[X] When boating at a fast speed with a wolf over one high water, the wolf can occasionally teleport to you and cause massive damage from the collision.

[X] My friend and I killed a Ghast and it didn't count on his or my leaderboard scores.

  • Don't waste your time on Ghasts, as they aren't even on the leaderboards.74.82.64.160 17:11, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

[X] On multiplayer on a friend's server there were squids swimming around in flowing water. One player removed the source block and the squids continued swimming in the air. When thereafter attempting to kill the squid with a sword, it would turn red but not take damage. I do not know whether this can occur on other modes.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 20:28, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When exploring mobs will sometimes be invisible which will cause you to be damaged to death unexpectedly.

[X] After saving and reloading a drowning trap, somehow the mob managed to teleport through the glass wall and attack.

[X] When creepers blow up monster spawners, the fire continues to burn indefinitely.

[X] Spiders can climb through fences, especially in mob farms

[!] When a Creeper blows up next to you on Easy mode with full hearts and food bar you die. With Armor you lose all but 1 heart. This never happened before the update and no other mob's damage has changed. Just the creeper not sure if this was intented or not, but to me its a bug and its pissing me off, because if a creeper comes up behind me on easy while im doing something else and i dont have time to turn and hit i die, and im not happy about this at all. User TombstoneInc Can Also be Reached at [email protected]

  • This isn't a bug, as Creepers can kill you instantly even on Easy. A point-blank Creeper blast deals 12.5 hearts of damage. That's your own problem if you get mad from that.

[X] I have an egg farm and I can only produce 44 chickens inside (via egg). I can get 44 chickens only if I kill off all of the other chickens in the world. Killing other passive mobs doe not seem to increase this number. I know that in the PC version, you can have unlimited mobs, so I think that this is a bug.

[X] I have invisible chickens. I have six chickens spawned from eggs in a 4x4 stone enclosure accessed from a ladder from above. After I restart the game 2 or 3 times the chichen disappears, but eggs continue to spawn. I made the mistake of opening the room and the chickens trampled my wheat.

Annoyances

[A!] Animals seem to jump up and down constantly and can actually jump through and over a 5 high fence.(Eg.roof I'd fence and so are walls) -Radical924 Feb 19 2013


(bl|a!} Sheep (let alone all passive mobs) attempt to jump fences too much. Also, they take no interest in eating grass. No idea if it's intended or not, or if it's a later function (they do not do this weird behavior in the PC as of 1.4.5). January 5, 2012 @ 8:05 (UTC)

{bl|a!} when there is too many passive mobs, maybe jsut mobs in general, passive mobs will not breed

[A] there are no spawn eggs in the creative mode inventory. i dont know if this was planned or not. 00:20, 21 December 2012 (UTC)Lolzzzzz

  • This is intended. Spawn Eggs come out in 1.2.3. We only have 1.0.1.

[A] Mobs will frequently "bounce" after descending any general block staircase (dirt, stone etc.) as if they are still trying to descend stairs. Mobs will also walk in the wrong direction when in pursuit of the player from time to time and then suddenly snap back to the chase. --Codpoke 05:08, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

[A!] Peaceful Mobs are nowhere to be found on just about every new map I start. Sometimes there is a single wolf and occasionally a cow or a chicken, but for the most part my world is devoid of all passive mobs. Meanwhile, hostile mobs spawn just fine.

  • The 1.8.2 Bug Fix introduces a new spawning code, which gets your world overrun by animals after about five MC days.69.203.156.229 23:43, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

[A!] Peaceful Mobs stop spawning when you have ~15 tamed dogs. Hostile mobs continue to spawn until you have ~20 dogs. Either case, Squids and creepers continue to spawn. --205.237.170.42 08:27, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

  • The first bit could be do to having to many entities in a chunk. As for the other part i have no idea. --Ichi 12:12, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Killing wolves will allow creatures to begin spawning again. This, in fact, appears to be the problem. --205.237.170.42 20:43, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Well, it's still a problem in the game, regardless of the issue in my world being temporarily fixed. I would, after all, like to have my wolves follow me while hunting, something you can do in PC version. --205.237.170.42 04:50, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I have encountered this glitch too and unfortunately this is after the 1.7.3 update so it means that it has not yet been fixed. It is happening in a world which I use for co-op and we have around 14 tamed dogs. I think that if 4J choose to expand the size of the worlds to be made as big as the ones in the PC version then this problem might be fixed. I guess we'll have to be patient again and wait for the next few updates to see if it's resolved. --84.13.125.210 11:27, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Just got the latest update and passive mobs are near impossible to find. Maybe one every now and then. I have tried several maps and they're all the same. There are a ton of wolves all around but killing them doesn't help! Makes the hunger meter a little hard to deal with!! 10/21/12
  • This has been fixed...a long time ago. The 1.8.2 Bug Fix added a new passive mob spawning code, letting passive mobs spawn in enormous numbers with no end. Due to the fact that they can't despawn, it's very easy for your world to be totally overrun.69.203.156.229 23:43, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

[A] Hostile mobs can spawn in 2x1 empty spaces. Annoying if you accidentally left a small sliver of space between walls.

  • Although annoying this is just basic game physics, hostile mobs spawn in light levels less than 8
  • Anything 8 or above will have them scrambling to the dark unless they're on the chase. If they won't stop, walk far away. Any hostile more than 128 blocks away from any player instantly despawns.

[A] Overkilling medium or large slimes will result in no smaller slimes splitting off. Also slimes frequently appear to have already taken damage before coming into contact with the player. --Codpoke 15:50, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

[A!] In my world, my friend discovered after returning to my world after a month or two, his dogs are, for lack of better word choice, "unresponsive", to him. What I mean by that, is he can not make his dogs sit, or follow, as if they belonged to somebody else. Supporting this, I moved my dogs out of his house. The ones that were left were all his, but they still remained unresponsive. He tried hitting one of the dogs that were left, and it attacked him, even though it was not mine. My friend and I are the only ones in the world who have dogs. I'd really like to know what is causing this, as well as him. -Kevo745

After the new minecraft update for xbox (the one that just included creative mode and npc villages) I went and I found and npc village I went in the village and there were no villagers ( a.k.a squidwards) any way I went on ten other maps and there were still no villagers in the villages so in the next update I hope they have that bug fixed so thank you for reading.-samuel

@Samuel Villagers were not introduced in minecraft even when villages first came out I assume they will be villagers next update. -grewwwsum

  • There are villagers, but they're all farmers and don't trade.

[A] Arrows will occasionly bounce off of mobs(usualy Ghasts,Slimes and Players)This is really pushing my buttons as my world is "Ghast Infested" and Ghasts are allready powerful foes to take down.I don't know if its the arrows or the mobs causing this.Either way,this has to stop-Theqoree Z

  • I have to agree, arrows seem to bounce off mobs. It's more reasonable with Ghasts, Magma Cubes and Slimes, as they have special hit boxes, but oddly arrows also bounce off everything else, then teleport someplace else where it should have landed like the mob never existed.

Graphical, lighting and sound

Bugs

[!!] I have a TU6 world that I loaded in TU7 and it shows a blank map (the map you hold in hand), the world will not load any new chunks, the map will not update nor will the player appear properly on the map. The game will then either freeze OR back out to the main menu with an error. Note: The world is covered 1/4 with a layer of ice and this took HOURS to do (Filling map with water)! -Radical924

[!] If the tutorial is recently completed and you die outside of the tutorial area when you respawn sometimes you get stuck and unable to move because the game says you cant leave until tutorial finished.

[!] On split screen, you can hear the music but cant hear any sound apart from random, rare moments when you can hear normal sound for less than a second. Really annoying especially at night when zombie might be behind you.

[!] [MP] After respawning from death, the newly respawned player is unable to see any entities that were present before their demise. This often causes losses of the player's drops (as he is unable to see them, but he can still pick them up), and sudden deaths from invisible hostile mobs that were present at the scene of the player's death. Not only this, but tamed wolves and paintings will turn invisible (despite the fact the game still thinks they're still there) and will not reappear until you travel to an unloaded chunk and back. If you save and exit, all of the entitles will permanently despawn. This glitch is extremely annoying and has ended in the loss of a crapload of tamed wolves, paintings, and items. The glitch will happen almost every time the player respawns, and only happens in splitscreen.--Fablanire 21:46, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

  • If any of the other players are present at the other player's death scene, the glitch will not occur.--Fablanire 21:35, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] Mobs play both hurt and death sound when dying, instead of just playing their death sound.

[X] In the 1.8.2 update, using Left Trigger to open Wooden doors make no sound, but it does make a sound when using the Right Trigger. This has happened to me on both Survival and Creative on two different worlds. 2012-10-18 //yoshi95

-I tried again, and it works just fine now. When it happened it was my first time  
 playing since the update, it could be because of that. 2012-10-18 //yoshi95

[X] There is no portal travel sound.

[X] [MP] In splitscreen, if the host is in the nether, or if the host is in the overworld and the 2nd player is in the nether, the light level of the entire world for the 2nd player appears to decrease to about 12 (doesn't matter if the 2nd player is in the nether or not), even in broad daylight. The game still thinks the light level is still at the regular level, preventing hostile mobs from spawning.--Fablanire 21:46, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] Looking at chests from a certain angle will make all chests and signs go black, can still use the chests. 146.90.236.136, 7th August 2012

[X] Water retains it's light level and acts as a low strength torch illuminating the area around it. Might prevent mob spawning since I discovered it while making a mob dungeon/harvester. Can be corrected by dumping water on the water or placing blocks around the affected water block. --108.227.188.66 02:27, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

[X] Fire animation may not appear when going into then out of lava player keeps taking damage but no animation; may stop damage by going into water. --myandman12 17:49 June 30, 2012

[X] Being on fire is not noticed in the front-view camera. --Thegreenrobby 15:25 August 8, 2012

•This has been fixed.

[X] Grass blocks glitch when the sun sets or rises. When the light level changes, the grass changes color, from brown to green, and back to brown and so on. In MP, it sometimes even turns red or completely black; during nighttime, the grass edges on the sides of the blocks are black. This is true for about half of the grass blocks nearby. --84.195.73.229 15:18, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Don't have the bug on my system. The grass stays green throughout the in-game days when I play, both in SP and MP. Maybe it's just not grown grass you're viewing. Demote to annoyance. 71.20.120.188 00:31, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Minecart graphics appear to be extremely laggy; when they are unable to move up a hill because of lack of momentum, they don't slow down gradually, stop and reverse, but, rather, speed up the hill, stop abruptly and pause for a moment (sometimes they even disappear for a brief while when doing so), and then they shoot down the hill top speed. --84.195.69.12 10:27, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Redstone Torches seem to have a graphical error; sometimes I can see random white and black lines vertically inside the block the torch is in, and they flicker when I move the camera. --84.195.69.12 10:27, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Ghast fireballs will occasionally explode (like normal) but will cause a single flickering patch of flames, usually harmless. The fire flashes in and out or existence. More importantly however, while the flashing flame is visible the blocks around it can not be destroyed or built on, and any objects used in the area (3-5 cells I think) do nothing. Leaving and returning to the Nether removes the flames and solves the problem. --174.92.113.86 17:23, 19 June 2012 (UTC) [email protected]

[X] Since update Glowstone will turn black behind glass. I created an obelisk with glowstone behind glass. Before update looked fine. Now have to remove glass block for glowstone light to pass through. --75.85.158.172 20:03, 14 July 2012 (UTC)[email protected]

  • Confirmed: Dug 2 deep hole in a wall. Placed 1 glowstone in the back. Glass block in to fill the hole, light level dropped. --98.100.211.5 18:01, 10 August 2012 (UTC) Wolfiesden360

[X] The sound from a jukebox or note blocks stops after 15 blocks. Where as on the PC it stops after 75 blocks.--Ichi 17:51, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Options menu commands (not in the game, quit the server) : You can read "1.7.3.0112.0_DLC", at the bottom left. I found a problem with torches at the bottom of the water. If i put a torch, the torch will not stay, it jumps, it's normal, but the ground remains illuminated (dim light). Another problem, still under water with torches : if i put quickly torches in an angle formed by several block of dirt (for example), the torches jump from block as expected under water, but the torches disappear completely ; i can not recover them ; mainly in the corners (several torches simultaneously posed in the same place).

Annoyances

[A] There is quite heavy Mipmapping and low quality texture filtering, so blocks 10+ away from the player appear to have low resolution and tessellated textures. This can detract from the game experience.

[A] Whenever I grab a torch to move it or make one, I get the torch but it is nowhere to be found in my inventory

and it is very annoying to not have lighting in dark places {Squeaks}

[A] Ghasts make really LOUD noises.

  • Really? Ghasts are SILENT for me!However, demote or remove, as Ghast noises are supposed to completely travel through the Nether, so Ghasts hundreds of blocks away sound as if they were right next to you.74.82.68.160 19:36, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

[A] Sometimes, when trying to break down doors, the door rapidly opens and closes, creating a rather loud sound. I'm not sure how I sometimes manage to do it, though.

  • This has occurred for me multiple times as well.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 20:39, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Happens to me when I target the center of the door, where it connects to the wall.
  • You're hitting it perfectly so that when it is opened you are on the top half but when it is closed you are on the bottom half. It is annoying, yes it is.

[A] I may be misremembering the old lighting system (considering how long it's been since Beta 1.6.6)but it seems like torches' light is not as it was. When placed on a wall, the light seems to be very bright in a two block radius around the torch, and past that point drops off considerably. It may have been a temporary issue with newly-placed torches, as it seems to have improved after reloading the world

  • This seems to be common when playing as a client. When hosting I have not experienced any glitches with the lighting. --156.26.221.154 22:24, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I agree that as a client, lighting is severely bugged. You all can work around this by spamming the breaking and replacing of a torch until it becomes bright. This should take anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds, but still requires a patch fix. 70.160.166.80 22:37, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

[A] Wooden pressure plates sometimes rise up a block. Not sure what caused it, but I placed two side-by-side and one of them rose up by a block into the air. Standing on it made it revert to its normal position.

[A] It seems that objects when dropped in a large amount (like dying with a full inventory) aren't all appearing at the same time, but progressively after getting them, maybe a way to keep memory.

  • Something like this happened to me once: when I died and went back there, all the dropped items were invisible, but I could still pick them up. In the area around the place where I died (I'm guessing that chunk), all items dropped became invisible, including the ones I dropped after going back. Mobs were also invisible, and I was killed once more by the same spider (and indeed, it was invisible.

[A] When in the Nether Ghasts don't make sounds very often or none at all (found on split screen). --I can vouch for this! It's really annoying, because on moment, were doing whatever, and the next, we're picking up Netherrack, dropping a couple blocks down, and on fire. REALLY annoying. I'd label it as a [A!] . I found this on 2 Player, split screen, local. 70.162.247.236 16:00, 3 January 2013 (UTC)Thegreenrobby

[A] [MP] Sometimes, when playing split screen and player 1 enters the nether, the overworld brightness drops significantly for player 2.

  • Not really a bug, as player 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 are heavily dependent on each other for light. On splitscreen, the players themselves are light sources.

[A] Thunder does not make any sound unless right beside where the Lightning bolt strikes.

[A] Lighting is often not smoothed on water blocks, so each block has obviously different light levels.

[A] [MP] When playing in splitscreen MP, only the Player 1 is able to hear some kind of sounds. For example, if i go to far from another player which is using note blocks, he can't hear them anymore, same thing for the rain.

  • This is also the case for creeper explosions. You can here them "hissing", but not their boom. 50.47.82.164 19:45, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] During a thunderstorm, the light level doesn't darken (It makes it look like it is just regular rain). Despite this, hostile mobs will still spawn.

[A] The display of mushrooms, (and also for flowers and other objects / plants, please) is not correct on the "Stairs" / "Slabs" (That are blocks allow the player to change elevation without jumping.) or any other half-block in height. The half-height blocks are not taken into consideration. Objects or plants (mushrooms & +) seem to float in the air instead of being placed on the ground = directly on the block please ; not in the air (or on an "half-air block"). Thank you in advance to change the display of objects and plants, on the half-height blocks. Thank you, please, also permit removal of the mushrooms and even for all the active objects on the blocks at the limit of the world ; such as for the water and lava with a bucket. ((Please and thank you : it lacks the smooth stone for Stairs (An equivalent block of the "Stone slabs".), for all Minecraft edition. I do not like Cobblestone stairs, unless there are Cobblestone (carved stones) around the block Stairs = Cobblestone stairs.)) --84.103.93.15 15:17, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Ordinary stone isn't supposed to be carved, it's supposed to be cut. If you dislike cobblestone's look, hang tight. Stone brick is releasing in 1.8.2.74.82.68.160 19:36, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

[X] Scores on the leaderboards appear incorrect. My scores, for example, are much higher than they are currently displaying (displaying to me at least). I noticed they had been lowered dramatically a while ago, and they recently returned to the correct number, but they have since returned to being incorrect once again. I do like to record my progress, and I'd like to see a fix for this soon. --Codpoke 15:34, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

[X] The display data (with update Friday 13 July 2012) that is displayed in the table of rankings is defective, but the update displays data more quickly, it's true. The columns are not aligned, the numbers are all over each other (all or in part). The problem is often reproducible (you must change the method of classification (LB or RB and X several times) to reproduce), but not systematic. Up and down in the list can correct the display. thank you. --84.103.93.182 17:08, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] There is a miscalculation of the progress (for the loading and the saving of the level minecraft) and or a display problem with the progress bar, because the progress bar does not go at the end (the green color in the gray bar) ; it often remains always the same unused portion at the end of the progress bar when loading a level or backup. The progress bar should always be fully completed. Please and thank you. --84.103.93.182 12:22, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Annoyances

[A] Inventory, crafting, smelting, chest, and other pop-ups are too small to see in vertical and horizontal split screen. (moved from Bugs)

  • I definitely agree here. I have a massive TV, and I am forced to sit right in front of it to see what anything in my inventory/quickbar is.
  • Playing on a 720p TV, still pretty small. I can't imagine what it's like for someone using the old 480i. --BaroqueWolf 04:54, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Playing on a 25" LCD full HD TV, when playing horizontal, items and quantity are basically invisible, when playing vertical, they are fairly more visible. To Baroquewolf, split-screen is only available on HDTVs

[A] No confirmation when quitting without saving, but when you want to save, the game ask a permission. The non-parallel nature of the UI here makes things confusing. Also, the lack of confirmation makes it easy to lose up to ~30 minutes of play by mistakenly choosing Exit without Saving. 66.30.113.202 16:51, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Not able to see item being held after sharing picture on Facebook, also the camera is acting all twitchy when the point of view is changed

[A] Disappearance of Main Items, Health and Armor after using the share option on pause screen to take a picture and share it on Facebook. (There is no clear indication on how to make these re-appear if this is not a bug)

  • Do you mean how the HUD isn't shown in the screenshot, or does it all disappear permanently after using the share feature? The first scenario seems to be intentional, given the small size of the screenshots, but if it's the second scenario this needs moved to bugs.
  • The HUD disappears permanently. Saving and exiting the game does not make the HUD/Hands reappear. This must be a bug.
  • Returning to the Xbox dashboard and reopening Minecraft fixes this issue (confirmed)

[A] Saving the game and then exiting it asks you to save the game again which sometimes results in a console hang after long playing sessions (10+ hours, hang happened twice).

[A] Switching to vertical view in splitscreen seems to make the help texts disappear when requesting the info box. Inventory slides to the side but then info box is never shown.

[A] When the confirmation for deleting a world pops up, Cancel is on the top and OK is on the bottom, which is the opposite of most other games/programs. I have accidentally deleted two different worlds due to this. --Mr Nukealizer

[A] Equipping armor using quick move (Y) does not work, unequipping using quick move works fine. --95.97.131.78 09:53, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This seems to be intentional design, whenever there are three item interfaces in one window (inventory + hotbar + chest/furnace/etc) you can auto-move between inventory and hotbar while the third can auto-move to either of those but not recieve from them. But yes, it is slightly annoying.--Stephen"Tails"Prower 20:47, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Since the new update when using the item/inventory menu the player is no longer able to pick up an item with the cursor and hover over another item and quick move it with (Y). I often find myself with a full inventory and I have to move things manually with the left stick from my hot bar/quick bar to my inventory and back. It would be nice to have this feature brought back because I used it very often.

While saving i started mw3 now my minecraft map won't open , it will freeze everytime(99.234.137.159 05:36, 23 September 2012 (UTC))

[A] I have also found a few bugs with Title Update 8. The game saves when the last auto-save was before you leave the game and when you reload the game it counts down from how long ago your last auto-save was. For instance I save and exited right before an auto-save and when I loaded my map up again the next day it Auto-saved within minutes! Another bug is if you are in single player and pause the game with auto-save on when you un-pause the game and an auto-save was supposed to happen it saves. Instead what should happen is every time you are in single player and pause the game the auto-save counter should pause. If you leave a game the auto-save counter should reset (The resetting of the auto-save counter should always happen if you leave the game)!

Also instead of a 5 second warning why not have a toggle-able auto save countdown clock in the top left or top right corner of the screen that appears within 5 minutes of the next save? This would countdown the last 5 minutes until the next auto-save. When 10 seconds are left it should countdown from 10...9...8...etc when at 5 it should pop up with the auto-saving in 5...4...3...2...1...0 like it does now! - Radical924

Nether & portals

Bugs

[!!] Portals were working fine- until we attempted to set up a portal travel system, and 2 new players joined. On a return trip to test it out, the game froze up, forcing us to reset our Xbox. Every attempt after reloading the world caused crashes, trapping us in the nether.

[!!] when entering nether portal game freezes, this has happened several times. I have never been successful in getting through a nether portal without having to reboot my Xbox.

  • Same. Since my first attempt I have never been able to get back to the Nether. Every attempt leaves the game frozen - sometimes with music, sometimes without. Pressing the dashboard button on my controller produces the sound of the Xbox menu opening, but nothing on screen. Have to disconnect xbox at the wall or rapidly press power button until console resets. Attempted several times. [UPDATE] Attempted in MP over Live and was able to go into the Nether several times and even create new portal in the Nether. Cannot go through the portal in single player or local multiplayer.
  • Same freezes every time i go into the portal to the point that its even hard to reset the Xbox. Have found i can use the portal if another player is in my world though.
  • This also happened to me. I had saved in the Nether and left the game for a few days. (I know! Crazy right?) When I got to playing again, my game crashed when attempting to leave the Nether similar to others. When someone else went on my world, he could enter and exit through the very same portal just fine. When on the other side of the portal (in the surface world), he said he could see me for a second before his connection was lost on my world. (I was the host respectively, and I crashed respectively). It was only when I gave him everything in my inventory and killed myself that I could return to the surface world with all of my things intact. As you can see, this may have been caused by multiple things, I just don't know which. Could someone please tell me if their game crashed under any of the previously explained circumstances?
  • This is still happening to me as well, as of July 09 2012. Can't enter the nether, without freezing and hard restarting.
  • This happened to me also. I do not have any friends that play Minecraft on the 360 but I was able to get out by reloading the game, hooking up a second controller and signing in as a guest. So basically the same as has been suggested above, but just with a second controller.
  • This is happening to me as well. I was in the nether when suddenly the game autosaved. I tried to travel through the portal and my game kept on crashing and freezing. I cannot get through to the surface world and i am trapped in the nether. I tried to kill myself and when i did a spawned on the surface world and walked around for about a minute and it just froze and crashed again I even tried on multiplayer and everything it just wont stop freezing. Is there a way to fix my problem? 9th July 2012.
  • The 1.7.3 update fixed this for me. It may still happen for others though. (doubtful) --10.211.152.23 00:44, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
  • This is still happening as of January 4th, 2013. I didn't have the problem until just recently though, every time I went to and from the nether up until now has gone off without a hitch, even used to use the nether as a storage facility

[!!] nether portals worked fine UNTIL the update. Now I'm having the same issues as the first bugs listed. Ie. freezes, sometimes plays music, Xbox button makes sound but no menu pops up, hard to reset.

  • Same problem happened to me after the latest update. Solved by creating a new portal the other side of the world, travel to the Nether (which spawns a new portal), travel to the old portal, destroy and rebuild 1 block away-- MattyB


[!] Saving in the Nether, exiting the game without saving, and reloading the previous save game will cause the player to be stuck above the bedrock in the Nether. No blocks can be placed, and the player cannot jump off the edge of the map, so there is no way to get back. May be an online only glitch.

[!] When entering and saving in the nether, exiting without saving, reloading the saved game, the player will not be able to leave the nether or the game will crash. (This problem can be fixed with a friend, and give your stuff to the friend, and then die, respawn, have your friend come out of the nether, and get your items back. Has been tested and it works.)

[X] When deflecting a Ghast's fireballs with your fists, many times the ball would just stop; glitching back and forth.

  • me too even if I use a portal in a online game [not my world] it crashes in fact it's the only way I have ever seen a XBOX360 crash.

Annoyances

[A!] When playing splitscreen and one person enters the nether, the whole overworld goes slightly darker for the other players. Though this does fix itself after you leave. Unknown if this will affect mob swawning or not, but it's unlikley.

[A!] Even though it says that in the update that came out today (June 15) says that the game crashing when entering the Nether, it still crashes for me when leaving the Nether, but works when entering it. Is this just me, or is this happening to everyone?

  • Not happening to me. Before the update i tried making sure the game was offline and singleplayer only and that worked. Try that.

[A!] Getting near a portal causes the portal noises to be VERY loud.

[A!] After moving my Nether Portal twice, random portals keep spawning everywhere in my world.

[A!] When I try to exit the nether, my game freezes. No music. If you press the center button on the controller the sound doesn't even play. Tried on multiplayer and single player

  • I've solved this by clearing the cache (deletes the newest update), then I'm able to go to the normal work. You install de update after this and ready (I recommend not going to the nether again tho, or save before entering). poohrt

[A] When entering a Nether Portal there is a chance there will be multiple end points when you enter the Nether. For example, you have one Nether Portal in the normal world. When you enter it with other people you may spawn into different portals.

  • This isn't a bug, its simply how the portals work, they have to be something like 1200-1600 blocks apart in the main world, and about 200-300 blocks in the nether to be different portals
  • This IS a bug, it's NOT how portals work, and if it WERE how they worked then it would preclude the use of more than 1 portal in an XBOX MC game, because there would not be enough space in the entire map to put between two. So long as they are properly synched to their counterparts, you can have portals only a few squares away from each other that work properly. A party of people entering the same portal, yet exiting from different portals is definitely a glitch.
  • the 1200-1600 block size is obviously reduced for the 360 edition, just like the nether is 3 blocks per overworld block instead of 8, like in the PC edition.

[A] Nether Portals may not spawn in the Xbox360 edition, even after the update

Worlds and world generation

Bugs

[!!] The tutorial level will sometimes crash the Xbox whilst it is generating the world.-EpicRancorCptnFridge.

[!] I have a 1.6 world that had the chest crashing errors in the 1.8 update. I figured out that you can copy a world by having it on 2 different storage devices and renaming 1, followed by saving again on the 1 you didn't rename. I use this to archive my worlds, and one time I tried to rename the cloud save and got an error message. I retried it, and then the hard drive & cloud save were deleted. I found out Microsoft's cloud saves were having issues and when the servers went back up, the save finished, overwriting one of my old worlds. I didn't care about that world, and my main world (the one with the problem) inherited the old world's name (which was an old copy of it if that had something to do with it). I renamed it once, but now if I do it again to archive it (which if helpful because if something like this happens again, and the save doesn't complete after the servers go back up I can still have my world), I get the same message, even though the servers are fine again. The world will also get deleted again, but only on that storage device I renamed it on (perhaps because I aborted the renaming instead of trying again like last time). I don't need to archive or rename it, but with the stakes this high (possibility of world being erased), this needs to be patched. Current version is PC equivalent of 1.0 -Vince

[!!] I transferred a save to cloud storage to play at a friend's house. We played the game off of cloud storage there, and then I went back home and copyed the Save file from cloud storage overwriting the save I already had. So now I had 2, one from the Cloud and one from HD, at the menu, I load world however nothing happens, it shows the background, then the settings for the world pop back up. July 8, 2012

I have experienced the same issue with adding and removing a game from cloud storage. This is a major issue as it causes a complete lockout from that world. Changing ownership using Horizon does not work to fix this issue. September 3, 2012

[!] World generation is 75 to 90 percent water. I've checked about 10 different seeds and I can guess its because of the mushroom biome generation. There is always water around them and one world I was in for awhile ended up generating chunks of just water down to bedrock and cut right into underground tunnels. The water from the ocean did not flow into the tunnel just acted as if there was a wall. December 19, 2012

[X] The way NPC Villages are spawned often results in more NPC Villages than normal 1.8 maps on the PC version. This often leads to having villages consisting of just a well and a bit of gravel around it.-EpicRancorCptnFridge.

Edit: I misplaced this as a critical bug that crashes the game. It does not crash the game but the generation of the map has a lot of lag. December 21, 2012

[?] I have a world that was generated before the first update, and post-update, "nightmares" can still occur on this world if I set beds against the wall or leave the bedroom door open. (Even though the entire house is sealed up, well lit, and the bed is no longer set against the wall.) I'm not sure if this is a bug or if it was known that this would happen to pre-generated worlds because I can walk through sugarcane now. --Doug

[X] There is no cactus in my world. There also doesn't seem to be any desert biome in it also. --8ghy6

•Really? Loads of cactus and huge desert in mine.

  • Not a bug. Xbox worlds have limited size, and only so many biomes can spawn.

[!] If you log in as a guest profile in a multiplayer environment, all items are reset for you on reconnect. Pokechu22 18:20, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

[!] I had 2 worlds with the same seed (one in creative, one for survival). They both had the name "New World", when I changed the name of the one for creative, an error occurred that deleted the survival save. The message was something like "Your storage device has either failed or an error has occurred." When I reloaded the game from my hard drive, the Survival save was gone. 18 October 2012

Template:Bl!! We play offlline slpit screen because we dont have internet at home. we recently went to a friends and downloaded the 1.8.2 update. It worked fine for a few days and then one day we logged in and the game data had reverted to the orginal verison released for xbox. We thought this had happened because we had had cleared the systeme cache so we connected to the internet and redownloaded the update. Again it worked for a few days and has again reverted to the orginal verison. This is Very annoying and also causes the xbox to freeze and have to be restarted. Any help would be appreciated! -MORNINGSTAR24 MORNINGSTAR24

Annoyances

[A] Worlds cant be shared between profiles, i.e. you can't change the owner.

  • You can change the owner, but you will need to mod by using a usb. Look up tutorial on changing save games.
  • Very annoying indeed when you have two players in the same household on the same console trying to continue playing the same world even when one is not around. --95.97.131.78 12:59, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
  • If you have USB Flashdrive and download a program called Horizon you can change the owner of a save.
  • While it is true that putting the world on a USB drive, then putting it on a computer and using some software to change the owner is possible, it is not a very direct or easy way, and Microsoft frowns on using third-party software to make changes to saves. The saves should be flagged as transferable. --Mr Nukealizer
  • if you share the same console then an easy fix is to just use the host's profile to play the map..
  • The above "solution" is inefficient because then the second player either doesn't have access to their items OR is forced to play on splitscreen. I encountered this issue when playing at my boyfriend's house, and his TV is about 24" diagonally. Not fun. Rubychan 17:00, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] There doesn't seem to be any sugarcane in the tutorial level. This is very annoying to me because I lost my map at some point or another.


[A] The seed shown since the update Friday, July 13, 2012 is not the text entry ("minecraft" for example). The seed that is shown is composed only of numbers ("695073197" for example), but it is possible to use letters when creating a world with a seed chosen by the player (including myself). The value "seed" entered by the user should be displayed (and it is therefore necessary to save this passphrase = "minecraft") in addition to the seed "695073197" in the standard format, especially if both are valid data to recreate the same world. The two "codes seeds" are interchangeable ? The code input by the user, "minecraft" and the code currently displayed, "695073197" ? Thank you in advance for the clarification (in the game interface) and especially the change in the game interface. --84.103.93.182 11:51, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] World hole occors when placing too many fence blocks.

[X] Sometimes when u put a music disc in a jukebox it wont play even though the disc is in it.

[X] <materials bug> --jtwindizzleJtwindizzle 02:18, 28 August 2012 (UTC) When I play multiplayer splitscreen, an occasional bug occurs where I will try to craft something and the crafting layout informs me that I do not have the items needed to craft it. I then backed out of the crafting grid and tried it again and it worked although, the bug still appears to happen each time I try to craft.

Same here, I first noticed it when playing split-screen with a friend. I just backed out of the crafting interface, and re-opened it, and while it still told me I had insufficient materials, it could craft it anyway. I just try to ignore it. 184.1.103.140 03:09, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

[A!] I have a great world but now when I try to load it doesn't show the loading bar, it says 'A' Select 'B' Cancel and it shows the tutorial world (Spinning Camera). Pressing A does nothing, pressing B brings me back to the Difficulty Selection Screen for the world. I've tried waiting and it still doesn't work! Jeremy Russell

[A!] On some worlds,Nether Fortresses will not spawn.This is anyoing as heck because Nether Forts=Blazes=Blaze Rods=BREWING!Even if you find a fort yourself,they are vacant besides wandering Pigmen.Not even the Blaze Spawners are there!You can only see Blazes on Creative on Easy or higher,that is if you find the structures they spawn in-Dec 22,2012.Signed,Theqoree Z.

  • Whilst attempting to create a new world in which the Nether featured a Nether Fortress, around half of the Nether's included a Fortress, around a third of these Fortresses included a Blaze Spawner or a Nether Wart garden (more often a Blaze Spawner), and only one included both. Both are necessary for brewing potions (except for 'Potion of Weakness' which does not require Nether Wart). --Codpoke 17:54, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
  • really? i have the same problem. except one time i was messing around in creative and i found a nether fortress. plus it had a blaze spawner and some blazes, but no nether wart. i hope this gets fixed soon 'cause i don't like to have to give myself blaze rods and nether wart in every world. i will keep investigating.18:49, 11 January 2013 (UTC)lolzzzzz
  • I've found the new worstseedever!It's called 0123456789.It includes both a Nether Fortress,Nether Wart and 2 Blaze Spawners directly across from each other.Hope this helps!:^).Theqoree Z.
