I'm playing minecraft 1.7.2 and I type /gamerule keepinventory true, and it says that there's no keepinventory rule. How do I keep inventory on death? I'm fighting the Ender Dragon and keep dying.


The /gamerule command is case-sensitive. A quick check on the Minecraft Wiki indicates that the correct casing would be /gamerule keepInventory true, with a capital 'I'.

  • THANK YOU!! I have been trying to figure it out. I dint even think about going on the Wiki. – josh Dec 2 '13 at 3:58

    @josh If this works for you, you should accept the answer. – RavenM Dec 4 '13 at 14:09

    @Josh Hint: After you've typed the first few characters of a command, hit the [TAB] key for auto-completion. If auto completion doesn't work, you've probably already typed the command wrong. – Bryan Jan 24 '14 at 22:04
  • One thing that I ran into is that if you type /gamerule keepInventory 1, it will save, but will not work. Be sure to use true and false exactly! – Albert Bori Aug 1 '14 at 3:19
