I'm hosting a minecraft server and it's just me and my friend playing. Every time he disconnects and comes back, all of his inventory is gone. However, the things in the chest remain there.

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Can't even log out for the night and come back with everything. This issue doesn't happen with me, but only him. Again, we're the only two that are playing.

    It sounds like the file used to record his player information isn't updating correctly. When he comes back in, does it spawn him at the "inital spawn point" or does he spawn where he logged out? Does he lose his exp if he has any? – Lumberjack Mar 21 '14 at 16:26

    You could try deleting his player file from your server folder. When he comes back in it will be a fresh start, but if his player file was corrupt, this should resolve the issue. You could also check the file properties on his file to make sure that it is not set to read only. Finally, you might need to run your server "As Administrator" if the issue is related to file permissions. – Lumberjack Mar 21 '14 at 16:27

    Ahh. thanks guys. We were able to figure it out. When he logged in after disconnecting, he was using a different name than the one he previously logged out with. Using the same name on each login fixed the problem. – lewlsaucengravy Mar 21 '14 at 18:01
  • Mind if I ask how he was getting in with a different name? – user1337 Mar 23 '14 at 1:46

    @kotekzot I know, but from how it was explained this doesn't seem to be the case. – Nathan C Mar 26 '14 at 18:10

Try to use this command:

/gamerule keepinventory true

This happens to me as well on mcpe. The best thing to do is obviously have him put his stuff in a chest. This may seem like a stupid answer but it is the only thing that works, as it seems.
