Default 1.2.4 Update Is Out; XBLA Release Date

Release Date for MCX360 Revealed

For those of you waiting for the official release date of the upcoming console port, wait no longer - Minecraft will be available on XBLA on May 9th, 2012. It will cost 1,600 points. Awesome!


1.2.4 Update

The 1.2.4 update is now available for Minecraft! Mojang has been hard at work squashing bugs, and the inclusion of the Bukkit team has allowed a larger list of items to be covered in a short time. The changelog is listed below. To update your game, simply run Minecraft normally, and when prompted to update, allow it to do so. What was fixed for this update?

Fixed:
Chat history and much better chat editing
A few new decoration blocks
“Back” and “Quit” buttons to OutOfMemoryScreen
Made cats more realistic (read: probably annoying). I hope it’s enough to cancel out any joy you may receive from the previous feature!
Added a “minimal” debug menu for testing with. Shift+F3 to hide the graphs.
Made placing half blocks on existing half blocks (to make a full block) easier
Limit framerate on menu screens, no longer uses 100% cpu and make my computer melt
Fixed fatal crash for converted worlds to anvil, when there’s blocks at max height
Fixed an old bug with signs clearing text while you’re editing them in SMP
Fixed crash when logging in while there are blocks at maxheight at spawn
Fixed TNT ghosts in multiplayer
Fixed storage minecarts dropping enchanted items
Fixed crashes on invalid server addresses when joining a server
Fixed entities being uninteractable if they existed at login (Multiplayer)
Fixed dupe exploit with paintings
Fixed furnaces and dispensers dropping enchanted items
Fixed the “flickering” of chat as it vanishes off the screen
Fixed text rendering over items in the container screens
Fixed exploit with jungle saplings (turns other saplings into jungle ones)
Fixed launcher opening minecraft dir if the path contains a space
Fixed an off-by-one lighting bug
Fixed block transmuting (turning one block into another via pistons)
Fixed placing mushrooms in daylight, where they can’t survive
Fixed redstone lamps dropping powered block items when destroyed while on
“save-all” (server) now works even when you have toggled “save-off”
Fixed turning half-blocks into full-blocks while you’re standing on them
Fixed seed displaying in F3 debug when the seed is unknown (multiplayer)
Fixed villager texture changing clientside per profession
Fixed falling off ledge corners while holding shift
Fixed players falling when reconnecting to servers where they were previously flying

Special thanks to the new hires from Bukkit for this huge list of fixes!

While I was away at Game Developer’s Conference and a short vacation, the new Minecraft members Dinnerbone, Tahg, Grum and EvilSeph were hard at work fixing multiple bugs in Minecraft 1.2. The patch contains mainly bug fixes, but we also threw in a couple of goodies:

Chat history
Much better chat editing and controls (you can even mark text!)
Some new decoration blocks
Yay! Chat history and editing!

Haha with a small creeper face on it
I wonder if a creeper pops out if you destroy it?
It's probably built by combining sand and gunpowder

I really like the coloured woods. I can think of all sorts of neat designs using inlays.

Very nice. Notice that the hieroglyph sandstone design has changed from the previous version, which was Creative only.

The Xbox date is added to our calendar.

Some other "helpful" additions (quoting or paraphrasing parts from https://twitter.com/#!/Dinnerbone):
  • in the chat bar, Tab complete! Oh yes. If you're on a server with MrSnowman, type "m" and press tab. Easy!
  • You can paste text. You can copy text (for example "ctrl+a" "ctrl+c"). You can... well... everything.
  • These may not work on the Mac.
  • Cats will jump up and sit on chests (disallowing you from opening them), and on beds and lit furnaces.
  • Preview of the new ChatColors: dl.dropbox.com/u/36087083/ZSc…

As the servant to three cats at home, I can only LOL at the cat changes. I wonder if they will also eat your cake or shred wool blocks....
