Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.2 on Pi3 or Pi4

ahh ok that’s interesting that the RPi4 automatically allocates memory. Must admit I don’t think that was working for me because the first one I set up with 64MB was very slow to load the game world, but the second one I built using 512MB before running for the first time was very noticeably faster.

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.2 on Pi3 or Pi4

Great article, thanks for the write up.

I’d like to suggest setting the GPU Memory to 512MB for RPi4 models with either 2GB or 4GB as it makes a huge difference when loading game worlds.

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.1 on Raspberry Pi 3

Minecraft 1.12.2 works really well on the RPi4! By allocating 512MB to GPU on the 2GB Pi, the game world generates much faster and tends to run between 20 and 30 fps. It plays really well now! One thing to note with Raspbian OS Buster, it doesn’t have the correct jvm library, so I needed to copy “/u...

Re: RPI4 USB C Power Delivery negotiation

My RPi4 4GB arrived today (yay!!), but it seems I have nothing to power it with yet (boo) as the official PSU is due to arrive from another supplier later this week. Based on comments in this thread, I tried to power the Pi using my MacBook Pro 87W USB-C Power Adapter with the Apple USB-C cable, but...

Re: RealVNC Virtual Desktop Mode Not Working

Yeah, that was the issue (and makes sense in hindsight). Installing raspberrypi-ui-mods made it work in the end.

Thanks!

Hi Robert, Would it be possible to support browsing folder structures on the "Download Images and Videos" page by any chance please?

For the macro do you mean when the whole time-lapse is terminated or after each image. I thought the end-image was called for each image whether time lapse or not. The macro could normally tell which was which from the naming and act accordingly. Ahh yes I see, I thought that didn't work because it...

OK. I'll see what can be done. It is correct that currently the boxing path is only used when boxing is active. Also thumbnails only get created when the video path is within the same media folder as the thumbnails. The reason for this is that it allows any folder structure in the video_path to be ...
