Minecraft 1.6 update: Problems after download, do you have any?

By Updated on

We told you at the start of the week that a huge Minecraft update was incoming for the hugely popular online building game, and now we’re pleased to confirm that the update has now gone live. Patch 1.6 adds a wealth of changes, we want to know what players think of the updates after installing.

The update is available now the next time you start up the game. There are far too many changes to list them all here, but you can find the full update notes over at the official website at Notch here, as reported from Eurogamer.

Highlights include support for nether multiplayer, hatches, craftable maps, slow-growing mushrooms, dead shrubs in deserts and much more. One important thing to note is that Advanced Open GL support has been disabled in v1.6, as the creators still need to address a few bug fixes with it before including it again.

On the subject of bug fixes, there is a vast list for you to scan through over at the link above as well. If you have been having any problems with the game, there’s a good chance that the new update has solved things for you.

If you are already playing the latest version of Minecraft, let us know how your game is handling so far. Do you have any problems with the game or is everything fine?

    I have a huge bug that only appeared after the update, my minecraft server went down so I started a new one and no terrain was generated at all. I looked around and people say this has only stared happening after the update. I need this fixed ASAP

    Framerate has been jittery since the new update – was smoother on 1.5
    Should point out I have an ATI 3850 AGP card and the texture memory glitch (card memory not being used) seems to apply to the Beta of this game and not Classic.
    MC Beta runs much faster on an Nvidia 6200 I have played it on - a much lower spec of card! =(
    As said at the begining: 1.5 ran better.  Off to see if I can roll it back.

    everytime i go to multiplayer then type in my server ip it says connecting and it never logs in

    every time you “through out” partly damaged tool (like a pickax), next time you use it, it last only for one use. another thing is a lightening bug. The illumination level of the blocks does not change by it self as it should, unless a light sours is being destroyed/placed.

      yea same thing is happening to me

    there is something seriously wrong with bricks, I mean, they are in 4 parts (1 part fire, 1 part portal, 1 part brick and 1 part sponge)!!

    • Thomas Barrowcliff

      Thats probably a problem with your texture pack, download a hd texture pack patcher and patch it.

  • xaldin panda

    servers are really glitchy when i place a block it goes away and when i delete a block it comes back. its my own server and it doesnt require building rights so this is just a glitch not restrictions can we get that fixed please

    It deleted the NPCs in my game >:( I could probably add new but they would be really far away. Is there any way to restore the old version?

    I keep getting “Minecraft has run out of memory” This never happened before the update. Apparently others are getting it too.

    Yeah, the multiplayer server I play on keeps coming up as outdated, even though I’ve confirmed with the guy who owns the server that he has updated.

    Some more bugs I have found: Problems with shadow redrawing. When underground with torches: removing a block will leave the blank space in black shadow that goes away if you remove/replace the torch.  Oh and something worth mentioning is that network lag is reduced, but now replaced by PC lag / jittery framerate.  Have ATI HD3850 AGP. Oh and also, i got disconnected some time and when I logged back in, my location was somewhere completely different (maybe 300 coordinates away) that i had never been before.

    Yes, the bugs have been replaced with even bigger bugs. Dropping a tool and picking it back up results in it breaking on the first use, destroyed blocks aren’t repelled when things like sand fall on them, ice generates like crazy, lighting is a huge issue, placing items in a full chest crashes the game, and it uses a lot more CPU than usual.

    I play in my friends server, and the biggest issue I’ve experienced since the update, is the disappearance of items I put in the furnace. Coal will always resort to only one. Same with other items I put in. Or disappear altogether when I try to move them to my inventory. Very annoying.

    Minecraft has run out of memory. On the one hand this happened after i´ve installed many mods but on the other this happened never (also with mods) before the update.

    I bought this game for my nephew for Christmas and he has the gift code and has not been able to download it. Needless to say he is one disappointed young man. I have been trying to contact someone but to no avail.
