An anonymous user has suggested this new method, which sadly I can't give credit for because they are anonymous, but it's a better idea.
Have a repeating always active command block with:
You can then run this command to "ban" them:
/tag A_USERNAME add banned
To unban someone:
/tag A_USERNAME remove banned
There is unfortunately no way to ban players currently, but there is a way to whitelist, so if you only want some people to be allowed on you can turn the whitelist on and add the players you want to the whitelist.
You can't host a server for Minecraft Pocket Edition using the PC dedicated Minecraft server. Despite the name and visual similarity, in software terms Minecraft and Minecraft PE are completely unrelated and incompatible games.
There are currently two options for hosting a PE server:
Running an Android simulator on a PC and running Minecraft PE on that.
You can't connect to a regular Minecraft server through Minecraft: Pocket Edition.
Here is a guide on how to setup a Pocket Edition server: http://blog.gaming.stackexchange.com/2014/06/how-to-create-a-minecraft-pe-server/
The only way to do that would be to both: have your device rooted (jailbroke) and possess a copy of the outdated version.
I would check around and see if there is a modder community based around pocket edition. If you do have a rooted device. They would be the place to have a chance at that file.
Is possible! You just need a PC running Windows, macOS or Linux and an app called phantom for creating a LAN Server that the PS4 can join from the Friends tab.
To use phantom, you need to:
Download the correct file for your system from GitHub Releases
Look for the location of the file that you just downloaded
Copy the path of the file
Windows: Press Shift ...
You must've heard of GeyserMC.
Unfortunately, due to the implementation of Hypixel anti-cheat, you should not connect to Hypixel via Geyser. As per the time of posting, you still cannot move in Bedrock Edition. You can connect, but you won't be able to do anything meaningful.
Furthermore, in terms of game balance and feature disparities:
Bedrock has a ...
The file bedrock_server_how_to.html in the same compressed file as the server contains some information:
On some systems, when you wish to connect to the server using a client running on the same machine as the server is running on, you will need to exempt the Minecraft client from UWP loopback restrictions:
CheckNetIsolation.exe LoopbackExempt –a
I think there is not a server version for Windows 10 edition. You are using the server for the Java version of Minecraft.
You can either use that server in Minecraft Java or wait until a Windows 10 edition server is published if it even is going to be.
Also buying a Realm is an option: https://minecraft.net/en-us/realms/
I am running 3 servers using phantom and I can join them with Xbox One. phantom can be run on Linux, Raspberry Pi or Windows.
phantom makes hosted Bedrock/MCPE servers show up as LAN servers, specifically
for Xbox. You can now play on remote servers (not Realms!) on your
Xbox with friends. It's like having a LAN server that's not actually
You could try looking at the player files; if a player file is there, it is obvious that they have joined the server at some point as the game creates a new file for every new player that joins.
You can then compare that against a copy of the player data folder to get the delta; any new players that has joined since you last "cleared" (made a ...
Since no answers have popped up yet, I would just like to suggest a possible solution in cases like these.
First off, Pocket Edition Minecraft has been updated since the time of this post, so I presume that the Plugins used on the server have also updated since that time.(And most likely, this bug has disappeared form existence)
The problem with not being ...
You are trying to connect with 2 different versions of the game.
Minecraft - Windows 10 Edition, the game you're playing, is part of the universal Minecraft game, written in C++, compatible with phones, tablets, game consoles, and Windows 10 PCs.
Minecraft - Java Edition is the other edition of Minecraft. This is most likely the one your friend is playing ...
Yes, Minecraft Java edition and Minecraft bedrock/pocket/… edition are fundamentally different games and that will and can never change.
But you might still be able to run Minecraft Java servers on your iPhone, because that doesn't require being able to run the actual game. It's basically just a command line program written in Java, that's the most ...
For the admins that want people who dont own computers to be able to join their server, you can set this PHP script on a web server behind the same public IP as your minecraft server :
EDIT: there is also another option, see at the end
EDIT: I made the script a little more explicit with less hardcoded hex strings
$remote_address = $_SERVER['...
For creating shareable configurations, I will add to this answer:
On Windows, you can create the batch (.bat) file shown below in the same folder as the executable (.exe) file to start the process by right-clicking → Run As Administrator on the .bat file (x = IP Address, # = Port Number):
phantom-windows-32bit.exe -server x.x.x.x:#
The same can be ...
Minecraft Java Edition is for PC, MAC, and Linux devices. Minecraft Bedrock Edition is for consoles, Windows, and mobile devices.
Does what cost money? Minecraft is not free, but you can play a really old version of the game free at classic.minecraft.net.
There are several differences in servers because of differences between versions. For example, there ...
The official documentation and support pages can answer Question #1:
The biggest difference between the two is that Bedrock Edition runs on Windows 10/11, Console, Mobile, and VR, while Java Edition ...
There are currently (in early 2020) two incompatible types of Minecraft:
Minecraft Bedrock Edition which runs on most mobile devices (replacing "Pocket Edition" or MCPE which no longer exists), as well as XBox and some others.
The official branding for this that you'll see in the game is just "Minecraft" without any "edition" explicitly listed.
Be sure your default spawnpoint is not obstructed. If you want, try and place it again. You will need to enable commands for this.
I had the same problem with my friends, and that was because I had being playing in the Nether.
Be sure to have your spawnpoint and the world's spawnpoint both in the overworld (spawnpoint for the player and setworldspawn for ...
You could accomplish this with two command blocks and a comparator. First, put a command block down where they would spawn that says:
testfor @p[x=(x-coord),y=(y-coord),z=(z-coord),r=1] and make it repeating and always active.
(x-coord) = x coordinate of where they spawn
(y-coord) = y coordinate of where they spawn
(z-coord) = z coordinate of where ...
I've done this without issue. Are you using Bedrock Dedicated Server or are you idling the Win10 version as a LAN game? If the latter, then yes, you'll be two separate accounts. You should not have this problem, however, if you are running your world via a Bedrock Dedicated server and not connecting simultaneously with the same account.
One thing to note......
Yes, you need Xbox Live Gold.
Do I need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play Minecraft online?
You will need an Xbox Live Gold subscription (sold separately) to use
the following online features within Minecraft:
Connecting to servers
For local multiplayer you will not need an Xbox Live Gold
You need to buy the new Minecraft digitally, unless your son has played for 5+ hours between Sep. 2016 and Sep. 2017. Since servers seem not to be available, check for updates. If after any updates (if there are any), it still doesn't work, it means you do not meet the criteria and must buy the digital version.
If you own the disc version of Minecraft: ...
Short answer: you can't.
The new better together update allows cross-platform play, but only between the Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Android, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Windows 10, Windows Phone, Amazon Fire tablets, Gear VR and eventually the Nintendo Switch edition.
NOTE: When it says Windows 10 it means the Windows 10 Edition, which is different from the Java ...
If you do not have direct access to the files on the server, you can't.
Any method to do so would be considered illegal in most countries (including but not limited to the US) and is therefore off-topic on Stack Overflow.
