Try turning on the FPS limiter in the options menu.
Thanks, that worked!
It was nice to be able to leave spawn again! Once I respawned there, the rest of the world refused to load, so I was trapped there! in half a spawn fortress
I only had 2 mods (minimap and mo creatures), and since they put files into the minecraft.jar, which gets overwritten when there is a new update, I don't think that's the issue... since I don't think there is anything else it modifies. Plus people on the forum were talking of having this problem with fresh installs with no mods....and single player was working fine.... which is the other odd thing... I did start a new world to test if single player worked, as my existing world has the horses I can't load it until mo creatures is updated... so the world was smaller than multiplayer, but I don't think that made a difference
I tried the alt+tab or just pressing alt twice that some people found helped... it didn't... but I turned the framerate limit on, as was also suggested, and that fixed it instantly.
Seems a lot of people are also having the same problem.... and I find it interesting that most of them talk of minutes of lag... not just a small amount of lag. With so many people having exactly the same problem, it must be something broken in the update... I wonder why it's affecting only some though... My PC isn't the most flash thing out there, but it's certainly capable of playing minecraft (until today anyway)... so unless the update has some really buggy code or something that's causing issues for those with a lesser machine.... don't know...
I've put what I think is yours just inside my tower in a chest with your name on it.
I don't know what I had, except what's showing in the inventory in the screenshot above... but nevermind... I took the stuff and left you a thank you
I assume I died due to the belated creeper explosion... it ended up being quite interesting... I was sort of invincible! I could wade about in lava, dance around infront of creepers and go wandering off exploring caverns in safety for about 3 minutes until the lag caught up with me and I'd spontaneously combust and die
