why i havent been on the server

Post by overkill on 4/12/2015, 2:55 am

hello this is OVERKILLt1300 I know I haven't been on the server lately and hopefully I can get on soon. I went a bought myself a better computer but it has windows 8.1 on it and I guess minecraft 1.8 and up wont work on windows 8.1. So im stuck on minecraft 1.7.10 and the server requires minecraft 1.8.3. so hopefully soon ill be able to use minecraft 1.8 and up and come back on the server. I'm not sure when ill be able to get back on the server and maybe not ever again if they don't make it compatible with windows 8.1.So until then bye for now and hopefully soon ill be apart of the server. :D

This is odd because Minecraft does work on Windows 8.1. Try deleting your .minecraft folder and downloading the new launcher from minecraft.net

The above should fix it. I run windows 8.1 and I have no issues with running minecraft 1.8.3

Re installing Minecraft should do it. I've not really heard of minecraft not running on windows 8.1. If it doesn't, then maybe try downgrading to windows 7. But that shouldn't be the case, because I'm sure that it can run on windows 8. bounce bounce bounce

Not bad just pointless, I have been running windows 8 since it was released, I'v had no issues with it and minecraft together. Why downgrade when the current version works fine with minecraft.

Just remove the old launcher and install the new minecraft launcher that doesn't use java. It should work fine.

Windows 8>Windows 7 despite what people say. Its faster and has better driver support among other things. TBH it doesn't really matter as Windows 10 is coming out this year and will be a free upgrade for all Windows 7 and 8 users
