Hi, I have been using Minecraft EE for several years, and in the last month I've experienced an issue that I've never encountered before.
I have all students connecting to my world and we are building a city together. I've done this project many times.
In the last 2-3 weeks, tons of students are able to join the world - but upon joining, their character appears "frozen" in the world from my view. They see their character moving, they see the shared world...but they are not actually building in it. They cannot see their classmates characters or me as the teacher. If they save/exit/restart...it "sometimes" fixes the issue, but often will just freeze up their character again.
Another common issue that I see when this occurs is that their "inventory" cannot be opened. They simply cannot add/change blocks from the inventory as it does not work. If I kick them, again, it "sometimes" fixes the issue, but often will just freeze them up when they try and rejoin.
A final issue I see when this occurs, is that my "join code" is automatically changing every 2 minutes without me doing anything. I've never seen this happen before. And we were able to build without issue for several weeks. This has only started in the past 3 weeks.
Please advise. This happens in multiple locations (I teach in several schools) and with different worlds (it's not the same .mcworld file).
Students are on Chromebooks - but again, we were able to build without issue up until about 3 weeks ago.
Please let me know if you need anymore information. This is currently a major issue where I cannot continue our building project as the amount of "frozen" student characters is causing too many tech issues.
