What if Minecraft Pi Edition was Updated?

I know that this edition will most probably never be updated. As of right now, it's version 0.1.1 and was based on Alpha 0.6.1 of Pocket Edition. Sadly, It hasn't been updated since 2013 . :( “The original team has stopped supporting it and starting with 0.9 MCPE became a lot more ambitious technic...

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.1 on Raspberry Pi 3

:? My question seemed to have been ignored:

Is it possible to create a desktop shortcut for this?
Instead of having to launch it using a terminal command.


if that's actually what you have to do.. You see, I don't have a Pi yet. :P

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.1 on Raspberry Pi 3

Hey. I was thinking of using Minecraft 1.12.2 on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B : Would I just have to change every mention of 1.12.1 to 1.12.2 in your tutorial? Also, I have watched your video where you showed the Model B+ running 1.12.2 , and it got me wondering: Can only the Model B+ run 1.12.2 , or is...

Re: Are there any benefits from the Raspberry Pi using ARM?

x86 couldn't be powered by a low cost power supply ARM is much more suited, in part because it doesn’t run Windows. ARM will not run x86 Windows OS's The first isn't true: The HUDL2 tablet and other devices use an X86 and run from batteries or low cost power supply. The second is subjective at best...

This post has gone way off topic.

Back to the original question?

Although there have been a lot of good points about why Raspberry Pi used ARM instead of x86.

I really do thank you all for your inputs. :mrgreen:

Re: Can Emulators be easily installed on the Pi?

You can also install MAME4ALL-PI, https://sourceforge.net/projects/mame4allpi/ which emulates hundreds of home computers and consoles. In fact, if you have source code of an emulator written for Linux, it should be possible to get it to run under Raspbian by compiling it for the correct ARM CPU arc...

Can Emulators be easily installed on the Pi?

If yes, what emulators? I know that the Pi was not actually made for gaming, and was made for learning, but I was curious about this because I've been thinking of getting a Pi and I wanted to get a few emulators on it. This question probably is really easy to answer, but even though I've researched...

Re: Are there any benefits from the Raspberry Pi using ARM?

What ARM really brings to the table is low cost and low power requirements . Since there are ARM designs that have at least a GPU built in , that is also a cost, board space, and power savings advantage. If your target market is kids, being able to sell the boards at such a low cost is a really big...

That's true. :lol:

In all honesty, the Pi was never intended to run software, it was supposed to make it easier for people to learn how to make their own.
So any benefits from installing on Windows VS installing on Linux, are irrelevant.
That's true. :?

How to install software on a Pi: 1. Run the command "sudo apt install <name of package>". (There are graphical ways to do this if you prefer.) 2. Run the program you just installed. For quite a number of things on Windows, there is the extra step of re-booting the system. Very few things require th...

Are there any benefits from the Raspberry Pi using ARM?

Could they have originally made Raspberry Pi using x86? All I know about ARM is that Raspberry Pi uses it, and because of that, it doesn't have as much of a variety of software as Windows, because most of them were made to support x86, and not ARM. :( (If what I said was incorrect, please correct m...
