I have several iOS devices, one of which is an iPad 3 w/3G. If I enable tethering, and the other iDevices connect to it, will it be possible to play Minecraft PE between all the devices?

  • yes. tested on ipad2(wifi+3g) and iphone 4.

I have tried this using the mobile hotspot feature of my CyanogenMod Android phone (a Samsung Captivate, though that shouldn't matter). I think only the Captivate can host, in this case. If other devices on the ad-hoc network try to host, the server isn't visible.

I did not get a chance to test it on the iPad, because I've had trouble setting up tethering there.

Minecraft PE really needs to add Bluetooth support...


yes. tested on ipad2(wifi+3g/32gb) and iphone 4(16gb). mineraft pe serer is normal server like in minecraft but you can create only local wifi server(they are working on online servers now).
