Can I play Minecraft?

In a post, someone was able to get Minecraft Pi Edition working. They said they were going to fix Lima so it can play Minecraft. Is it possible now?

What post are you referring to?
It would probably be best to respond to the thread, or provide a link to it.

Here’s an example of a link that might be what you’re referring to:

This is exactly what I am referring to to

Since that post was made before the Lima drivers were updated, and we now have the Lima drivers working, I would assume the answer would be yes.

Here are some instructions on how to do it. I haven’t tested them myself. They’re also not specifically for the gameshell, since it’s using the raspberry pi.

I seem to remember having to add/edit users/groups in Linux with root access to update the Java runtime version to support minecraft. I did get it working, but back then it wasn’t worth running.

The tutorial is also using Debian Buster, so depending on your OS version, you may need to update the underlying Debian version.

Alright. Thanks so much @javelinface.

How do I use the linux terminal for the gameshell

It’s not a terminal within the gameshell. You access the gameshell remotely from another computer that has a command line interface. There are a lot of programs that you can use, however if depends on what OS you’re using.
