    Update 6/26

    We have released a hotfix (v1.19.53) to resolve the multiplayer issues mentioned here. Note that iOS does not yet have the hotfix. Our next update before back to school will have this and more multiplayer stability updates for all OS's. Note that v1.19.53 (hotfix) and v1.19.52 are cross compatible for multiplayer, in other words uses on either version can join each other. 

    If you continue to see any multiplayer issues, please report them to us at https://aka.ms/MEE_New_Request so we can investigate further! Thank you!



    Update 5/18

    We are still investigating 1.19 multiplayer disconnects. At this point we need some logs from affected devices in schools. For IT Admins, Educators, and Tech Leaders who are able to reproduce the multiplayer issues and did not have issues on 1.18, please submit a ticket to https://aka.ms/MEE_New_Request and request Justin, explaining that you've been encountering multiplayer issues only on 1.19. 

    Getting logs will be a huge step in our ability to resolve this issue. Thank you. 

    Update 5/9 

    We rolled out the server-side update this morning to fix outdated clients who join a v1.19 bugging out the host's world. We're still investigating multiplayer issues with all users on v1.19, but would be interested to hear if this morning's update fixed it for users who had all users on v1.19 with multiplayer disconnects. 

    Update 5/8

    We are releasing a server side fix for cross-version multiplayer issues this week. This will involve no client-side changes or action. We're still investigating the cause of multiplayer issues where all users are on v1.19. Packet Captures sent to our support desk would greatly help this investigation. 

    Update 4/26

    We're still investigating multiplayer issues that persist even after all users have updated to version 1.19. If you do have a user on v1.18 attempt to connect to the host's world, the host will need to restart the app and re-host the world. Then have the v1.18 user update to v1.19 before updating again. 

    For persistant issues, we need more users to report the device make/model/OSversion in a ticket to us at https://aka.ms/MEE_New_Request 

    Packet Captures and Fiddler traces from devices that can reproduce a failed join also help. Thank you!


    Update 4/21

    We understand that the multiplayer issues are persisting after all devices have been updated, and our engineering team have engaged with our network team to continue to investigate.  

    We would love to talk with anyone still having multiplayer issues directly so we can troubleshoot. Multiplayer is a complex feature and can be affected by a combination of factors, so we need to get more information from each case to understand if the issue is a client issue and if so determine how to fix it. Please open a request with the support desk so we can help! https://aka.ms/MEE_New_Request
     
    We sincerely regret the disruption and inconvenience this has caused you and your schools.
     

    Update 4-19-23

    The engineering team is investigating why a multiplayer session with users on different versions is disrupting game play, which seems to be the root cause of many of these issues.  From reports in this thread it looks like re-starting the devices has helped many people get back into gameplay.

    We again apologize for the issues you all experienced with the rollout.

    Update 4-17-23

    The team is actively investigating these issues and appreciate your feedback.  I am passing your information over to our engineering team so that they can figure out the root cause of these issues.  If you are able to send us logs or fiddler traces, please post below and @mention me and I'll create a ticket to collect more info.

    We sincerely apologize for the disruption these issues are causing you.

    I just tested on two different networks and was able to reach that page. It may have still been being updated. Is it still occurring? If you are trying to update you can also go to our main website homepage and navigate to the downloads page. The new build should be there to install.

    We were having issues spawning the warden, is there a special trick to it?

    I had problem in this version with connecting. I mean that we check when the person on version 1.18.45 want to join to newest version world -> Minecraft is crashing and all people on the world 1.19.52 have same issues (can't click "E", can't get any block to hand, when breaking block there is no sound). And after closing world, the popup "Saving the world" shows long and nothing happen.

    A few of our classroom laptops did an automatic update to v1.19.52 but now these devices can no longer host or join worlds, even with other laptops using the same version. When we try to join worlds, there is always a time out error. Also, when we try to save and exit from any Minecraft world in v1.19.52 the saving screen lags and we have to force quit the program to exit. We are using Windows 10.

    I tried this new version 1.19.52 with my students and they are no longer able to connect to my world.

    The day before the update, everything was going smooth.

    From my perspective at the moment, it looks like the update broke it. 

     

    We tried:

    1.restart minecraft

    2.reinstall 

    3.reboot

    4. run as admin

    5. double check port forwarding

    6. change network

    7. restart router

    8. change host

    9. make sure we are on the same tenant

    10. shutdown the firewall.

     

    I submitted a support request

    Ugh, it was a struggle for me as well. I had to restart everything, and I mean EVERYthing multiple times. But things did finally work. Not sure what's up, but things are a little tough to get going.

    Hey Dominic,

    The Warden is spawned by making noise near naturally occurring Sculk sensors that are near Sculk shriekers.

    Make enough noise and you will see him!

  • After the third reboot, my world was working, saving, and exiting correctly. One more reboot of my computer and students, and they were able to join the world!

    Thanks for sharing what worked for you Stephanie!

    If anyone else can reboot a couple times, let us know how that helps your issues.

    Reboot, like, all day. And then it will work!

    Yep rebooting the whole computer seemed to fix a lot of our issues, there were some strange happenings on the first load up, including the break block mouse button being unassigned, saving world screen hanging, music playing when app had been closed and mobs not moving anywhere. But a hard reboot did the trick. We couldn't spawn the warden with the egg, (which is obviously the first thing everyone wanted to try) or with sculk sensors, but perhaps it just needs another reboot. Still, excited to get the wild update finally!

    I tried restarting +10 times with hard shutdown. Students see the world, but connection timeout.

    restarting does not work for me

    Spectator mode is not working. It is giving me an error that says it is invalid when running the command. I tried it with a command block as well.

    Is anyone else having trouble with students exporting the Book and Quill? My student reports that Minecraft crashed every time he tried to export. I am soliciting more feedback from the class.

    I wonder if this might be attached to the problem with the command to give cameras? https://educommunity.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/14805516329620

    Unfortunately with this new update my students (including myself) have a lot of problems. Students with Windows 11 have especially serious problems. Some do not log into their account, some do not enter into the game itself. No student was able to join my server, and when exiting the map I created, the game just freezes and constantly stau in the "save the world" menu. It's catastrophic update :(

    While I said yesterday that restarting numerous times allowed students to host and join worlds (eventually), some still can't and now we've discovered that the "E" inventory button does not work for us--even with the default keyboard settings. Also, the worlds seem to randomly freeze, and gets frozen when we try to Save & Exit. The more that we try it, the more glitches there seems to be.

    Now I am suffering more like everyone else. It's pretty terrible. I am finding also that inventory does not work as soon as students join the multiplayer world. Really nuts!

    I am also finding that the world does not save properly. If I stop hosting, save world, and try to close MC to reboot it, the world just does not save. Just hangs there. I have to force quit. What is going on?!

    Today was an awful Minecraft day. Ugh.

    Bryan Sanders Albert Lynn Gordieiev Artem I'm going to open tickets for each of you. If you could post a video reproduction of the issues that you're running into I'd love to send that to our engineers to see if we're able to reproduce that on our side and figure out how to solve it. 

    For anyone with world connection issues, please ensure that all users trying to connect have successfully update to version 1.19.52 of Minecraft Education and are not on the beta. Uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version from here may help: Download | Minecraft Education

    So I was able to set up a world to Host Yesterday.  And a Student did join it yesterday and I have seen no reports of problems from students (however, as far as I know, only the one has played since the update.)
    This morning I did have a few minutes to check using a couple other computers.  My Laptop (that normally has not be updating automatically the last couple times) did update automatically this time.
    I have been able to join multiplayer with one at a time and have seen none of the strange glitches I've seen noted here but I have not tried to save the Hosted multiplayer world yet.

    I was able to export the portfolio and book. 
    I did see the issue that the camera is not accessible via the /give command  That is annoying since I like to use the /give command to give students their cameras.

    I have not testing anything to do with npcs yet.

    Well a few hours later and I've experienced the communication glitch.
    Son was playing in the Hosted world and chunks quit loading for him.  As in he could see through the world into caverns and stuff.  I checked on the Hosting computer and I was not able to use /commands or open my inventory or access the NPC.
    Son got out of the world and shut down minecraft on his computer but the Hosting computer is still showing that he is in the world and hour later.  I'm trying to save and exit but it has hung.
    Looks like I'm going to have to use the task manager to shut it down so I can restart the machine.

    I'm hosting Education Edition on a windows 10 Dell Optiplex 7010 that has enough speed, ram and storage to operate a gaming server.  My son's computer is on the same LAN and we are not blocking anything for these computers with firewalls.

    I replied to the message with the created case, but I haven't received a reply yet, so I'm leaving here a list of bugs I found and a video with explanations and examples. I really hope you release an update soon because I can't teach at all... :(

    1. Main problems start when first student connect to my host world (world that I made specifically in random biome, bcs when I started world from Minecraft collection they can to connect to me, but with starting another bug)

    2. Freeze all animals and the world does not load in the edge. Inventory doesn't work.

    3. I can't make some programming block code with Agent, but student can. Agent can only to teleport on the position.
    4. After update, it was disabled firewall permission in Windows (student can't to connect into my world or start any from the Minecraft collection).

    5. When I try to exit from the game after freezing, the game freezes and I need to destroy process from the Windows task manager. 

    Thank you!

    Every time an update rolls out, I am filled with apprehension, and this time is no exception. It's hard to believe that this release came just as I was about to start a new club, especially after the previous club experienced numerous issues due to glitches in the last version. I had finally found ways to overcome those problems, but this update introduces a whole new set of challenges.

    I'm wondering if anyone has successfully hosted a world on a Windows 10/11 PC and had a child connect using an iPad? So far, I haven't been able to achieve this. PC-to-PC connections seem to work without any issues, but I'm struggling to establish a connection between a PC and an iPad.
