4J details ‘Minecraft’ bug fixes


4J Studios’ Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is still going strong – the developer is prepping its 10th title update for the game. Some previous updates have added major gameplay changes – Title Update 9 added alternate dimension The End – but this one primarily deals with bug fixes. The update is still being tested and will soon be shipped off to Microsoft for certification. 4J took to Twitter on Tuesday to detail the fixes we’ll see in Title Update 10:

–   Fix for Silver LIVE profiles getting an error message on loading a save.
–   Fix for lighting bug causing unlit areas even when light sources were placed in the these areas.
–   Fixed slowdown caused by explosions (TNT and Creepers).
–   Fixed frame rate slowdown in The End being experienced by some players until the Endercrystals were destroyed.
–   Fixed crash when placing lots of Item Frames with Maps inside.
–   Fixed collision box issue at the top of Ladders.
–   Fixed issues with animals taking damage randomly, or falling through the wooden planks floors.
–   Made Dispenser suck water/lava back into an empty bucket.
–   Fix for Potion Bottles being launched from a Dispenser.
–   Enabled placing Pressure Plates on Nether Fence.
–   Fixed an issue with Fire Charges sticking at the edge of the world.
–   Change to not be able to place more than the maximum amount of Paintings/Item Frames, rather than removing previously placed ones.
–   Stop players from interacting with Item Frames and Paintings when ‘Can Build and Mine’ is disabled.
–   Fixed the Custom Skin Animation setting not working.
–   Play the correct sound on hitting the Enderdragon.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is without a doubt one of the most popular games in the history of Xbox Live Arcade, with more than six million copies sold since it first hit the digital service last May. The XBLA version also sold more than the PC version in 2012, and even knocked Call of Duty out of the top spot in the Xbox LIVE Activity Charts in October, the first XBLA game in the service’s history to do so. It doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon – to call the game a powerhouse is an understatement.
