The category[edit]

If I may ask, out of all the categories, why is this under gameplay? –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Yurisho (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Sir, may I ask what the better category is, then? | TheKax | Talk 07:06, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Scripts for finding reports[edit]

Firstly, I don't understand why the script and instructions are shown. I'll just find... *searches computer* HERE, it's a script. Why should the site show instructions when you could just dl?

Secondly, Mac/Linux scripts SHOULD be the same as windows, it's all Java.---Tehninjah (Tehninjah99 on Minecraft) 16:35, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Script doesnt work[edit]

Script mentioned on page doesnt work, when I use

java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -cp "%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\*" -Djava.library.path="%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\natives" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft

it only results in


However, after some googling I tried using

java -Xincgc -Xmx1024m -cp "%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\minecraft.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\lwjgl.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\lwjgl_util.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\jinput.jar" -Djava.library.path="%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\natives" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft>debug.txt 2>&1 (source) and works perfectly. Shouldnt that be updated?--TakeruDavis 16:24, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

   that did not work takerudavis only puts a txt file named debug saying 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.

Better install java then. 13:10, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
That error can also occur if the path is not properly set up; try replacing java with "%programfiles%/java/jre6/bin/java.exe" (keep the quotes) if on a laptop, or

"%programfiles(x86)%/java/jre6/bin/java.exe" if on a desktop. Also, if neither works, then try replacing jre6 with jre7 and trying those combos again. Pokechu22 03:14, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Error only appears in multiplayer[edit]

Okay, when some people try to connect to my server they get an error flash but for a split second, however their singleplayer runs fine, when running the script it shows no errors, How can I produce an error report from multiplayer? as this is where the error occurs. --Lutzee 20:10, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

You can use the same methods as on this page. By the way, I hope you appreciate my quick reply :) Pokechu22 23:43, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Why is there even an article on this[edit]

I mean really Minecraft can get techy if you want it too. But REALLY WIKIPEDIA HAS AN ARTICLE ON This.

But this is a MINECRAFT WIKI, so it should cover everything about the game, so people don't have to go to other sites! And also, does Wikipedia explain how to get a minecraft crash report? Pokechu22 03:16, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Creative Mode[edit]

Ever since the update, when i exit the crative mode inventory the game crashes. PLEASE FIX 21:14, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

The wiki talk pages are not for support. Shouting "please fix" will not fix it, too. Calinou - talk × contribs » 21:19, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Old Crash Showed up on me[edit]

this is wierd i was in the nether then i used /tp 30000000 80 30000000 i think i encountered a bad chunk but then it showed me the crash report like in the old days. i used 1.3.1 creative mode with cheats on. i also had it turned on easy so that is probally the problem.also before the crash the fps was down to 0. also i think because of Easy mode there was probally over 1000 mobs.Perish97 18:13, 6 August 2012 (UTC)Perish97

X/Z ±30,000,000 is well beyond the beginning of the Far Lands (in fact, if nothing has changed since Beta 1.8, this is the boundary beyond which only phantom chunks generate); there are well-known performance issues in attempting to play Minecraft while that far out. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:15, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
well i was in the nether OH i forgot to say something there was no phantom chunks where i was Perish97 18:09, 6 August 2012 (UTC) Perish97:talk
The Nether has the Far Lands as well.
It's possible that Minecraft has been fixed at some point to generate actual chunks that far out, but that wouldn't really change the performance characteristics of the Far Lands, I think. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:37, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Blue dirt screen??[edit]

I've used Singleplayer Commands for a while and I've noticed that after using too many commands, it crashes with a blue dirt screen instead of a brown one. It appears the color is simply inverted, and it happens with texture packs, too. Does this ever happen in vanilla? MarioLuigi2010 21:59, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Are Crashes Okay?[edit]

So me and my brother downloaded this new mod, MCA (aka Minecraft Comes Alive), is it okay if it crashes? Would it mess up the system in any way? I just want to make sure if it's okay if it crashes. I don't want it to affect my whole minecraft game to mess up even if I delete the mod or clear my bin.

Crashes are absolutely normal, especially with mods. If you run the launcher and chose force update, you should be 100% fine, if you do not enter the world. If you enter the modded world without a mod, it will either crash or corrupt the world. If it comes to this, back up .Minecraft (%appdata%), and then delete the original and run the launcher, and everything should work fine. No mater what, your computer should be fine anyways.

Methods to get a crash report on Windows[edit]

Frankly, most of those methods are pretty odd. All of them assume that the user is using Java 7, all of them are assuming that Java is not part of the PATH variable, Method #2 bypasses the launcher entirely, method 1 and 2 supply xmx and xms arguments which are just defaults, ....

What is wrong with a simple 'java -jar minecraft.exe'? Morrolan 10:53, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Profiler witty commnets[edit]

Im Pokechu22, and I was the person who added the crash witty comments section. But, I just discovered that the profiler has witty comments too. I don't know if this information belongs here, but I will include the array of comments here, which can be added to the appropriate page.

String[] var0 = new String[] {"Shiny numbers!", "Am I not running fast enough? :(", "I\'m working as hard as I can!", "Will I ever be good enough for you? :(", "Speedy. Zoooooom!", 
"Hello world", 
"40% better than a crash report.", 
"Now with extra numbers", 
"Now with less numbers", 
"Now with the same numbers", 
"You should add flames to things, it makes them go faster!", 
"Do you feel the need for... optimization?", 
"*cracks redstone whip*", 
"Maybe if you treated it better then it\'ll have more motivation to work faster! Poor server."};

Move obtaining a crash log[edit]

I believe that it is better suited that obtaining a crash log should be moved to a tutorial page; rather than keeping it on a general wiki Page. Extreme 00:53, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Opening problem with Minecraft[edit]

I have had the game for a wile, my computer became infected with a virus and when i got it back from best buy i could not play the game anymore. the websight aswell does not know my username or password.

Oh — I know what I we did wrong![edit]

History, counterargument. Even with the note, this My Little Pony vs. general practice conflict persists.

Anyone who takes part in that edit war: Consider discussing the subject here before trying to revert. You may be blocked otherwise, for disruptive edit warring. Resistance is futile.

— Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 15:10, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Is there evidence against a possible MLP reference in the witty comment? or is there a general practice rule I'm not finding? --Mincemeat72 (talk) 03:56, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Witty comments[edit]

There was a recent edit war over a speculative addition to the explanations of the witty comments, which has lead me to ask a question: what about all the other explanations? A few of the quotes seem a little short to guarantee it as a reference to said movie, so for the sake of consistency we should really remove all unsourced claims, rather than just the My Little Pony one. KnightMiner t/c 00:42, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

 Strongly agree on all counts. I'd also  Support kepping this page semi-protected indefinitely to prevent further edit wars. -BDJP (t|c) 00:56, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
 Agree as well, since without confirmation from Mojang it's all speculation (even if it may seem obvious to somebody). Skylinerw (talk) 01:27, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
 I agree. Also, the same may apply for splashes. — Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 15:23, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Bumping the issue. — Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 15:47, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
I removed a few (mostly hidden ones) where the splash was not obvious enough, mainly based on whether it contained uncommon words, uncommon phrases, or if it was long enough. I'm sure more could stand to be removed (ones that are less strong, such as "I'm sorry Dave", the four lights or the hug token), but beyond those I think the rest are unique enough for their explanation to likely be correct.

Running Minecraft on Mac OS 9[edit]

Is it even possible without crashes? Because Mac OS 9 installer has a Java runtime environment available in the customization menu, is it even possible to run Minecraft without crashes on Mac OS 9? I've seen Druaga1 trying Minecraft on Windows 98, but what if i tried Minecraft on Mac OS 9? -- 05:16, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
