New Splash[edit]

So there was a new Splash, "Play Minecraft, Watch Topgear, Get Pig", added with the most recent version 1.2.3_02. There is actually a background to this; it was auctioned off on Desert Bus for Hope by Notch himself. I'm curious if a special note should be made of this. --Spolin 15:54, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Also, there's an anti-SOPA one that reads "SOPA means LOSER in Swedish!"

66.57.19.188 19:34, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

That's been on the page since shortly after the release of the version of Minecraft it was added in. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:26, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
Also, the splash "Danec!" Isn't on the page.75.138.37.159 05:03, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
There is no "Danec!" splash, verified in 13w21b and 1.5.2. Did you mean the "Let's danec!" splash? That is listed. User:Kanegasi User talk:KanegasiUser:Kanegasi/edit count 05:05, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
I can personally vouch that every splash present in splashes.txt as of snapshot 13w21b and release version 1.5.2 is also present on this page. I've run through the entire file at least twice in the past while working on this page, and make it a point to check for changes to it in every new version. There are no missing splashes here, period; any that appear to be missing are one of: added by mods (which aren't documented here), special splashes (which are documented, but don't appear in splashes.txt), misidentified splashes (as is the case with your report), or simple oversight (as is the case with anon's report above). All four of these have happened, as a perusal of this talk page will show. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 07:09, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
Oh sorry, I must have forgotten some of the splash. I meant the lets danec splash. :)75.138.37.159 03:29, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Consummate V's[edit]

This phrase comes from Homestar Runner, so I was bold, went ahead and added a link. --Homfrog 13:51, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

I added a link to the wiki. — fuchsiania 00:55, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Table instead of a list?[edit]

I think the splashes need to be placed into a table with columns for details and explanations. Quite many of these splashes are non-self-explanatory running gags or insider stuff, so it could be required to understand their meaning. I'm not quite sure if it's enough to simply create links for the lines... --Barracuda 16:02, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree. On a related note, what does "SWM forever!" refer to? Urbandictionary gave me Single White Man.--EnderA 04:34, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

There is a Swedish gaming community called Swedish Maffia with the address www.SWM.se and it is likely that it that group he is referring too. --Jostain 18:08, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

This would greatly help the page, yes. I've transformed the list into a table now, feel free to add references you might spot. Those empty cells look sad. And Single White Male would be correct, though this could be one of the tougher ones to explain. --RV 02:23, 12 January 2011 (UTC)


Shouldn't we make the removed splashes into a table too? I see no reason why not, and as the game grows (and when it leaves Beta), there will undoubtedly be more that get removed. --DwarfWoot 15:33, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Done, thanks for bringing it to attention! --Gnu32 16:45, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Missingno[edit]

So, I was bored and attempted to edit my Splash.txt file, and replaced the current Splashes with some of my own, and when I started MineCraft, I got an "ERROR" when trying to log on [but not an internet error], and the MISSINGNO splash was used, which I did not put in splash.txt. Reloaded again, still Missingno. So, I'm guessing that if the Splash.txt is modified, MISSINGNO is displayed?

Anyone else want to test this too? --DwarfWoot 20:04, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

That's been there for quite some time actually. I was going to add it yesterday but didn't have time. Today someone put it under "Removed" but it is in fact not removed so I just added it under "Special" splashes. Ordona 21:44, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

"Kiss the Sky"[edit]

"Impossible because there is a barrier stopping you from moving more than 128 blocks above bedrock; also a reference to the lyrics from Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix "

I'm fine with the Jimi Hendrix part, but according to Wikipedia, "in the sky are clouds", which to me means that at Cloud level, one IS in the sky, and thus the "Impossible because there is a barrier stopping you.." is false. --DwarfWoot 17:26, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

This confuses me, as the "sky" is only vaguely defined irl since there is no definite boundary to outer space. Thus having any boundary whatsoever would constitute an impossibility. I'd just let this one go on a technicality. Darkid 22:12, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect Capitalization of Spongebob[edit]

The description for "Lives in a pineapple under the sea!" is:

Refers to the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Which is correct, though improperly capitalized, as Spongebob is one name, as is Squarepants. The correct capitalization would be:

Refers to the animated series Spongebob Squarepants.

-- ClapNZ 05:01, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

The name here is capitalized the same as it is on Wikipedia. This is also the capitalization used on its official site. If this is really the battle you want to pick, I'd start in those two places, not here. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 06:04, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

A new one[edit]

Someone on the "moon" discussion page, said they found one that said "that is not a moon!" –Preceding unsigned comment was added by AppleSoup (Talk|Contribs) 06:31, 13 March 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

There's a text file somewhere in the game's files that lists all the current splash messages in the game (or, rather, the game uses the splash messages listed in that file). The file needs to be directly checked for new or changed splash messages (on that note, I need to find just where the file is). ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:39, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
"That's not a moon!" is already in the list. --Barracuda 13:48, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Exclamation marks implied![edit]

As every splash ends with an exclamation mark (as far as I've seen), is the exclamation mark implied and added by Minecraft, or part of the splashes.txt file? Does Minecraft run something like this:
Object PASCAL:

AssignFile(SplashesFile, 'splashes.txt');
Reset(SplashesFile);
MaxLines := 0;
While not EOF(SplashesFile) do
Begin

ReadLn(SplashesFile, FileLine);
Splashes[MaxLines] := FileLine;
MaxLines := MaxLines + 1;

End;
Splash := Splashes[Random(MaxLines)] + '!';

QuickBASIC:

OPEN 'splashes.txt' FOR INPUT AS #1
MaxLines = 0
DO

INPUT #1, Splashes$(MaxLines)
MaxLines = MaxLines + 1

LOOP WHILE NOT EOF(1)
PRINT Splashes$(INT(RND * MaxLines)); "!"

BASH:

I=`rand -M Lines in file`
S=`cat splashes.txt | cut -d '
' -f $I-$I`'!' if [ "$S" = '' ]; then echo 'missingno'; else echo "$S"; fi

I know that Minecraft is written in Java, not PASCAL, QuickBASIC or BASH, but this is just an example. -- ClapNZ 02:20, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Nope, they're all right there in the splashes.txt file. I considered adding a comment in the lead about how all the splashes end with an exclamation point when I added the line numbers last night, but forgot about it when I was reviewing my changes prior to saving. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:23, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
OK. Also, look at the BASH version of the script. Could that be where missingno comes from? -- ClapNZ 02:28, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Probably not. If the splash routine is properly coded, the first thing it would check for is that the splashes.txt file exists and is readable; if not, that's when the "missingno" message would be displayed. I've never looked at the decompiled code for Minecraft, though (and probably wouldn't be able to make much sense of it if I did), so I don't know how it actually works. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:38, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
It is possible that it stores a hash of the file, and checks against that. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 11:41, 15 March 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~
Excellent guess, Dinoguy. The splash text is initialized as "missingno", so that will be displayed if reading splashes.txt fails for any reason. Interestingly, it will not pick a splash whose hashcode is 0x77f432f - which is #232 ("This message will never appear..."). The article says it does in fact appear, but this dates to when it was added in Beta 1.8 . Can anyone confirm seeing it in 1.2.5? -- Orthotope 10:17, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, I guess the first (and fastest) way to find out would be to check the splashes.txt. If its not there, then it won't appear on the main menu. MaryTheTiger 18:59, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Has anyone else gotten the splash "if not okay return end" with no exclamation mark or capital letters?

Possible Reference[edit]

Could "Wow!" possibly be a reference to the fact the Minecraft is Awesome? If so, should this be added in the description? -- ClapNZ 06:15, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Not really a reference, seeing as you are already playing Minecraft, but it`s either
  • It`s just a general greeting of amazement/surprise, and maybe the game is "surprised" that you came, or is "amazed" that you`ve made such great things.
  • It`s just a random/extremely obscure reference.

Descriptions[edit]

Are the descriptions for the minecraft splashes actually official, inferred, or random guesses? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Deathgleaner (Talk|Contribs) 05:03, 24 March 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

They're all inferred, though several of them are drawn directly from Notch's comments, and many of the rest have some pretty solid logic behind them. If you know of any descriptions that explicitly disagree with something Notch has said about the corresponding splash, though, feel free to change the description (make sure to provide a link to Notch's comment, though, so others can confirm it as well). ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:14, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Speaking of descriptions, the description for splash #218, "Information wants to be free!" Is incorrect. Most likely, it refers to Anonymous, a hacker group. They want online information to be free. if they think that you are a good prospect for their group, they will send you a survey, and one of the questions is, "Do you belive that information should be free?".24.196.6.243 02:04, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

I do not believe Notch, or whoever added that from Mojang, intended to reference Anonymous. It lines up more with Notch's belief that things like NDAs and patents/copyrights are detrimental to development and advancement of any kind, which they are. User:Kanegasi User talk:KanegasiUser:Kanegasi/edit count 02:08, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

'Scary!'[edit]

Perhaps this is referencing the Herobrine. This is the only scary thing I think about MineCraft. I myself often think I see him so now i keep render distance at far so i don't get scared (with lag) Rocĸetor talk 07:56, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Could be. Could also be linked to the ambience sounds, some people find those scary, or mobs, like Endermen. MaryTheTiger 19:04, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

#34 - That's not a moon![edit]

I´m pretty sure the phrase goes "That´s no moon" and not "That's not a moon!". Could someone check and, if so, add a note just as in "Superfragilisticexpialidocuous"? --GALAKTOS 17:40, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

It is indeed 'That's not a moon!'. --Rocĸetor talk 09:30, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Upside Down[edit]

umop-apisdn! - The phrase "upside-down", upside-down.

I don´t see how. Could someone explain it to me? --GALAKTOS 09:37, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Either turn your monitor upside down or stand on your head. You can also use a mirror, or ultimately take a screenshot, paste into paint, go to Image -> Flip/Rotate -> Rotate by 180 degrees. If you still don't see it, consult your optician. (or lawyer) MaxKing 14:42, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, I didn´t actually try viewing it upside down because it didn´t occur to me that so many letters could look like regular other letters if viewed upside down... well, now I know. --GALAKTOS 17:51, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
No prob. It's just like with "370H55V O773H" :P (NOTHING personal, just showing an example) MaxKing 20:37, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

åäö in Languages[edit]

I find the text "These characters are not part of the standard 26-character Latin alphabet, but are used in the Swedish alphabet (many Scandinavian languages use such extended versions of the Latin alphabet)." for the Splash "Now supports åäö!" somewhat misleading.
I propose: "most European languages use an extended version of the Latin alphabet" Other Scandinavian languages use one or the other character that Swedish uses but never all three together -- Danish and Norwegian, closely related to Swedish, use å, æ and ø (and more rarely é) and Icelandic, another North Germanic language, uses æ and ö (amongst other accents, such as á).
å is definitely a clear indicator for a Scandinavian language as no other languages, except for minority languages or some dialects of German, use this character. But ä and ö are used in German and Finnish as well, ö is in fact used in Turkish and Hungarian, too. Thus, we can say that the accents ä and ö are used in a wide range of European countries. I understand the author of the game is Swedish, but wouldn't replacing "Scandinavian languages" with "European languages" be a bit better / more accurate? No language uses all three accents which Swedish uses, but many non-Scandinavian languages do have one (or two in the case of German) common accent with Swedish. --(lKj) 19:11, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

It's more general than that, really; many non-English languages that are written with the Latin character set use at least one character not found in written English (beyond certain loanwords or archaic forms, perhaps). A better, and far more concise, description of this splash could be written if someone could confirm that Minecraft is Unicode-compliant, in which case this splash would refer to the point at which Notch added such compliancy to the game; the description could then be stated simply as something like

Minecraft features Unicode support; the characters "å", "ä", and "ö" specifically are all extended Latin characters used in Swedish.

ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:20, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Or we could just use everything after the semicolon (less the word "specifically" in the above description. And, for the OP's benefit - this isn't a linguistics wiki - we could add a link to a resource discussing that information in intimate detail, but it's really not relevant to the splash comment or Minecraft in general, except in the broadest of terms. 24.69.196.170 09:20, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Spiders everywhere[edit]

I think this could be a reference to an imageboard script that, if user uploaded an image without any comment, it filled it out with phrase "D**KS EVERYWHERE". –Preceding unsigned comment was added by MaxKing (Talk|Contribs) 08:56, 22 April 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

May be Polynomial also refers to Polynomial the game? http://dmytry.com/games/ –Preceding unsigned comment was added by PASAf (Talk|Contribs) 14:57, 16 May 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

I rather doubt it; that splash has been in the game for quite a while, whereas Polynomial was just released October of last year. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:00, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Polynomial was in fact released in late 2008 as fractal editor, then sometime in early 2009 as a game beta and finally in October 2010 as finished game on Steam... tbh i dunno if it really is a reference, but it has a related game concept, it has gone through the editor, game beta, and final product phases, and there's overlap in userbase, so it is not too far fetched.

Aah, I didn't know that (this is the first I've heard about the game that I'm aware of). In that case, I think it wouldn't hurt to add that as a possibility (something like "Possibly refers to the game Polynomial"). ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:12, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

"Almost Never" is an interesting concept![edit]

The description of this splash seems to be incorrect: wouldn't it be more likely that Notch would be talking about how 'never' is an infinite descriptor (which is negative), and how one can never be close to an infinite? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by AmusedChicken (Talk|Contribs) 02:02, 17 May 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

That depends on how you define "close" - there will always be usable definitions, regardless of the scale being used, that allow one to get "close" to an infinite. That said, the explanation of this splash referring to "almost never" as the counterpart to "almost always" is just far neater than what you're suggesting. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:14, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Kaneda and Tetsuo[edit]

I recently played Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. At the end of the second-to-last mission I had to tap a discussion of a guy with some Japanese. The discussion escalated, and just before they started shooting, there was one guy screaming "Kaneda!" and another one answering "Tetsuo!" (Check out this video at 16:20). Could both splash texts also be a reference to Splinter Cell...? AIAS-5 16:48, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Not without Notch explicitly stating so, considering that is itself a reference to Akira. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:15, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

"Haunted!"[edit]

To whomever keeps changing the description back to a blatantly non-Herobrinist point of view (blatantly saying that Herobrine is a hoax): Please stop! There are some people who believe in Him, and being one of them, I would very much appreciate a more open-minded description here! Also, please note that I have changed the link so that it will now direct whoever clicks on it to a Herobrine video that still actually exists.Wandergirl108 22:21, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Well, the truth is, Herobrine does not exist. This is not speculation, but a confirmed fact. It's true that Herobrine is a hoax, but if someone is vandalizing the page in a way that makes it say that when it shouldn't, it's punishable. Herobrine being a hoax does not belong on this page, rather a page about Herobrine. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Noobzone1 (Talk|Contribs) 22:56, 30 June 2011.

There are several mods that do that. However, Herobrine is not a feature in the vanilla version of Minecraft. Noobzone1 17:50, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Octagon/Oh man a Jack Black reference?[edit]

Could both of those be a reference to this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7jpz_55EdM

(This is a meme, and "Oh man, I totally forgot to bring an octagon!" is one of the lines most used by YTPMV makers) RacinFreek 08:29, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

"Oh man!" is possible (but very much a stretch, considering the genericness of that phrase), but "Octagonal!" is right out, since Jack never says "octagonal" at any point in that skit. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:23, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Menger sponge![edit]

It is not possible to build the Menger sponge in Minecraft, as it is a fractal object of infinite complexity. You can only build it up to iteration level 4. For 5 you would already need a world 243 blocks high. --GALAKTOS 18:03, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Omnipotent[edit]

In my opinion, "Omnipotent!" may also refer to redstone being Turing-complete and thus capable to calculate anything a "real" computer can. --GALAKTOS 12:17, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

It's doubtful that the "Omnipotent" splash refers to anything in particular. People just like reading way too much into stuff, and apparently can't stand seeing empty spots in the table. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:42, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

"Jason! Jason! Jason!"[edit]

Couldn't this equally be a reference to Rhys Darby's stand-up act? Especially considering the Flight of the Concords one being there. gz33 (talk) 02:21, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

This also could refer to a videogame "Heavy Rain", which has a scene where the player is given option to spam a "Jason!" shout.

The reference is from Scream for me, it's in the opening scene. 95.249.44.128 19:40, 16 April 2012 (UTC+1)

The newer splashes[edit]

Unless I'm mistaken, there wasn't 260 Splashes when it first went to beta (I started right at the end of Alpha, so I don't know exactly when they started and whatnot) However, I was thinking that it would be cool to list what patches specific splashes were added. (That was they could viewed in a time-line like style). Alternatively, add a Trivia or something section that just says what patches added splashes and how many. Thoughts?--DwarfWoot 18:04, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I've been thinking about it for a while; I'll probably add an "Added in" column to the table at some point. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:48, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Let our battle's begin![edit]

I noticed this one was empty, so I Googled a little and found this: angryflower.com / plural.gif Could it be the source for the splash text?

Also, it is impossible for an unregistered user to submit a link. After previewing and submitting, the "antispam filter" shows up and asks for a 16-7=?. However, after that you have to "use preview first" again, so you never get to pass the antispam test. Catch 22? 178.148.240.204 09:24, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Some of these are really a stretch[edit]

# Splash text Explanation
253 Bigger than a bread box! A line used frequently on the show "What's my line?"
87 Bring it on! Likely refers to the fighting between the player and hostile mobs.
195 Haha, LOL! Might be what some players will say when playing on multiplayer.
22 Holy cow, man! Minecraft often spurs this sort of reaction in its players.
46 Oh man! What players will likely say when they see something frightening, like a Creeper, or frustrating, like being killed.
247 That's super! A common reaction to finding Gold or Diamond. Minecraft is also very super.
87 Woah, dude! Players will likely react this way frequently, either by impressive structures built by other players or an unexpected Creeper explosion.
75 Yes, sir! Possibly refers to Notch being the final word in what gets implemented in Minecraft and that players should accept it.

And some of these really don't need an "explanation".

# Splash text Explanation
191 ...! Minecraft is quite surprising.
15 Excitement! Minecraft inspires excitement in those who play it.
93 Freaky! Some people find Minecraft freaky.
190 Gasp! Minecraft often startles most players.
207 Scary! Some people find Minecraft scary.
7 Sexy! Some people find Minecraft attractive.

I agree. I hate to read redundancies in encyclopedias. Descriptions should be as short and descriptive as possible, not bloated with words just to make the page look filled. Those description you listed should be removed entirely.--72.19.123.8 21:51, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Definitely agree, some of these "explanations" are pretty redundant and stupid. Jtlcr777 21:52, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
ALL descriptions should be removed. After Notch left, who knows about these? 108.210.218.70 19:26, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
Why? Even if some descriptions can't name a source and maybe are totally incorrect supposings, it's very interesting to know whtat the individual splashes mean. Also, this post is pretty old so back then in 2011 the page was at a way more incomplete state than it is now. Also, Notch has not implemented all Splashes, I assume that about the half of these was added by Jeb or another developer. Also, sometimes the meaning is pretty clear. | violine1101(Talk) 19:44, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

"Don't Bother With The Clones," or some kinda rubbish like that.[edit]

Yeah, I believe that this splash IS in the text file, but the description for it as of now- no. Just... no. "Basking in minecraft's glory?" The hell? Because THAT'S NOT BIASED AT ALL DX

Anyway, with your permission, could I just change this to something a little less biased? Not sure what, but I'll happily discuss it with you guys. kthxbai I am bad luck. Deal with it. 22:28, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

I recall it was the name of a horror film, so I added that in. --80.195.218.114 16:42, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Tyrian would Love It[edit]

Originally said that it presumably referred to the game Tyrion, but in that game Tyrion was the name of a place. Rather I think it's more likely a misspelled reference to Tyrion Lannister (The Imp) from the "Song of Ice And Fire" novels by George R R Martin. IN the book "A Dance With Dragons" Tyrion and Penny (another dwarf) perform a mock joust.

Portal Reference?[edit]

Splash #203, Don't look directly at the bugs!:

This is also a reference to Portal, where the player is told to not look directly at the operational end of the portal device.

In no way, shape, or form did Portal create the "don't look directly at it" phrase. I don't believe this is a Portal reference and so that sentence should be removed. Comments? --Abcorntalk 01:07, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

119 - "sqrt(-1) love you!"[edit]

Electrical engineers use the letter 'j' to represent the square root of -1, because 'i' represents electrical current in most equations. "j love you!" makes little sense, so my fellow EE's and I (knowing full well that I speak for all of us, without exception ^_^ ) are feeling left out of this joke. Ecdmuppet 16:34, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

This is something I've read about several times before; it probably wouldn't hurt to specify that the splash references the mathematical constant rather than the EE one. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:17, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
In mathematics the letter is i, giving i love you, which makes sense. I didn't know electrical engineers used j. Maybe you could change it to _'sqrt(-1)'eb or something. Ebu11 (talk) 00:56, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

288 - Pumpa kungen![edit]

"Pumpa kungen" is NOT Swedish for "pumpkin king"! "Pumpkin king" in Swedish would be "pumpakung" (one word), "THE pumpkin king" in Swedish would be "pumpakungEN" (still just one word). The splash "Pumpa kungen!" (two words) actually means "Pump the king!" in Swedish, and nothing else. Does that phrase make sense? No, it doesn't, really. My guess is that it's a spelling error. It's a very common mistake in Swedish to separate a joint word into two words (the Swedish term for this phenomenon is "särskrivning", which means something like "separation writing"). The splash might also be spelled this way deliberately as a kind of joke ("särskrivning" is often joked about in Swedish). 213.112.66.165 21:47, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Google Translate says that it does translate to "pumpkin king", though it also (now) asks if I meant "pumpakungen" (it didn't when I originally checked what "pumpa kungen" translated to, and Google Translate could also be wrong about this - it would hardly be the first time, and it certainly wouldn't be the last).

merry xmas[edit]

i think it should be added since i first found it strange since i never had it before then i kept having that splash every single time i started minecraft. then i went to erase all the splashes in the title folder and then it still showed merry xmas then i updated minecraft to be sure it wasn't a part of a mod and no. and i can't get rid of it. not that i don't like christmas it's just that i would like to add my own and make them show up instead of merry xmas. and why is it the same one over and over again? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by MrAwesomeLuis (Talk|Contribs) 17:29, 24 December 2011.

Randomly generating splash text?[edit]

I was bored and flying to the farlands in the nether. After reaching 29220 (In honour of Kurt J Mac's far land or bust) I gave up and went to the start menu. The splash text was text being randomly generated around every 100ms in the format of ##### ###! (Not sure about the exclamation point, but knowing Mojang...) This seems to be a mighty special splash, considering spashes.txt can't do this.

Custom Splashes Through Texturepack?[edit]

I was just wondering, is it possible to get custom splashes without editing minecraft.jar, but through a texturepack instead? I've been making one and want to give it to my friends but I want to customize as much as possible, without having to change minecraft.jar. --124.180.246.171 06:24, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Not that I know of. Personally, I've thought for a long time that it'd be awesome if texture packs could customize sounds as well; thinking about it more now, I don't think it'd really be that much more work to expand the texture pack functionality into a full-blown mod system capable of changing many in-game features and adding new ones, but this comes from someone not intimately familiar with the game's architecture, so there are almost certainly complications I'm not aware of that prevent this. Still, I think it'd be interesting to see someone attempting a mod to turn the texture pack feature into exactly this (or is there already one?). =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:01, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Well, MCPatcher (the client mod to fix HD texture packs) adds "new" mobs to the game by allowing a single texture pack to put multiple mob textures into the game, so, say, on my JohnSmith texturePack I am able to see zombies with visible skulls and zombies with hair.

As for "related", how so? You could easily say any number of games are "related" to Minecraft for one reason or another; we don't even have an article on {{static link|Super Meat Boy}}, and that is a game that has a documented (i.e. confirmed by Notch and the game's devs) reference to Minecraft.

"This message will never appear on the splash screen..."[edit]

I've removed the note claiming this line does appear because it was false. I edited splashes.txt down to just two lines and launched Minecraft twenty times; this line was never used. The odds of this happening by chance are worse than one in a million, so I'm 99.9999% certain that statement was incorrect. The source code supports this as well: when choosing a splash to display, it compares the chosen line's hashcode to 0x77f432f (which is the hashcode of "This message will never appear on the splash screen, isn't that weird?"), and picks another if it matches. If that line is the only one in splashes.txt, the game hangs in an infinite loop. Mojang's choice to compare hashcodes rather than string literals obfuscates the code slightly, but has the side effect of preventing all strings with that hashcode from being displayed on the splash screen. (Of course, finding any other such string – let alone one with semantic meaning – is a nontrivial problem.) -- Orthotope 03:46, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Try opening your minecraft.jar file with WinRAR, 7Zip, or any other type of archiving tool. I use WinRAR to open it, and it works just fine. --24.3.218.26 17:47, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Staretta[edit]

I noticed that there seems to be a new splash in 1.6 or so, with just Staretta as the splash. Though it may be dokucraft resourcepack (unlikely.) 24.240.67.90 21:53, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

"Dinnerbone's Death"[edit]

"See Easter eggs#Dinnerbone's death for more details."

No such section exists. 75.118.51.238 01:07, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Some random editor removed it back in July citing that splashes are explained here, even though that section explains much more than just a splash and is referenced from this article, as you pointed out. User:Kanegasi User talk:KanegasiUser:Kanegasi/ec 03:40, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Don't Say the U-word![edit]

Hello everyone first post. I think I've found an explanation for the splash "Don't Say The U-word!". I've been the one trying to fill it on the page with "A reference to an attempt in 2011 to censor the word Uterus" but that was reverted a couple of times so here's my proof: rhrealitycheck.org/article/2011/04/05/uword-exposed-antichoice-movement FOLIO3 (talk) 20:19, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

While that is a reasonable explanation, it should still have a citation from Mojang saying so before it is added to the page. -- Orthotopetalk 21:11, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Just to be clear, we're not trying to discourage you or anything, it's just that this is a rather obscure reference and we need confirmation that it's right before adding it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:54, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
fair enough and how do we get a citation? FOLIO3 (talk) 08:36, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
You'll have to ask a Mojangsta and hope they answer you. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 09:04, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
