How do I toggle TNT explosions off? I need to know because I want to play TNT Run by CraftedMovie Group.

There's no way to turn TNT explosions off in vanilla Minecraft. The TNT Run video you're thinking of was recorded on a server with a plugin that turns off the explosions.

The server probably has something like the WorldGuard Explosion Flags plugin installed.

  • What about /gamerule tntExplodes true?

    @RyanAmos That would work now! Game rules were first added in 2012 and that one didn’t exist yet in 2013 when this was written. Commented Dec 25, 2022 at 22:21

You can use a repeating command block to kill TNT entities with a Fuse value below a certain point, since TNT will only explode when its Fuse value (decremented by 1 every tick) reaches zero.
