Glitches/Bugs & Fixes

At request of the mod this thread will be devoted to charting known useful glitches, bugs, and fixes.

For the sake of convenience harmful or useless glitches will simply be considered bugs.

Useful Glitches:

-Duplication: using a furnace or dispenser to create multiplies of an item.

-X-Raying: Using a piston and TNT to give the player the ability to see cave formations.

-Texture Swap: using a piston and a torch to convert an item from one texture to another with the same quality (such as colored wool or wood)

-Sand Generator: using a piston, redstone, and rails to generate a lot of sand.

Notice: Glitch names are links to places that provide more information as well as explain how to set up the glitch.

Bugs:

-When opening a door next to another, sometimes the top half of the other door opens as well and the door must be opened and closed to fix it

-On occasion, a hostile mob can spawn whilst trying to sleep even in a securely built location (fully lit, no corner pieces missing, closed doors)

-Glass does not fully allow light through and if next to another block i.e stairs. Will show the side touching the glass completely black

- Items in inventory are not saved after exiting from a game not hosted on the players Xbox.

-Leaderboard may reset at random.

-Achievements may not be unlocked when requirements are met. (this can be fixed by emptying your Cache.)

-Wooden pressure plates may stop working or image may move away from where originally placed. (Removing and replacing pressure plate generally fixes this.)

-Wooden doors placed around ice blocks may cause the top half of the door to glitch and not move properly.

-Redstone circuits such as clocks and pulsers tend to break down over time or if the player walks away from them. (Picking up pieces of the circuit and relaying them may get it going for a while but the problem will usually persist.)

-Slimes have a tendancy to spawn inside walls and die of either suffication or from contact with lava.

-Large Slimes may become invincible to weapon and weaponless attacks. (this is a hit box issue, the slimes can still be killed using a bow and some arrows.)

There are plenty of other glitches. For now I'm going to leave a link to the wiki here. I'll expand on this post later.

If anyone knows of a useful glitch or a bug that is not listed in the above posts please make a post about them in this thread.

I'm not going to find all of them on my own so the help of the community is a necessity.

For now I have to go, I'll add more information when I can get back on.

Bug - I have had a wooden pressure plate randomly stop working and turn bigger and float behind a door. It had to be removed and replaced for it to continue working again.

I built a piston bridge below water level, there's 4 rows of 40 normal pistons... each one has a repeater feeding it power and i've used a double switch gate thingy to have a lever at both ends of it.

when its activated, there are a number of pistons that refuse to raise although there is power getting to the repeater feeding them... i can remove the very first repeater that sends the initial signal then replace and they will all rise fine...

this needs sorting. i cant swim!

Bug - I built a house out of snow and put a wooden door up, then the top half of the door would open and vanish leaving only the bottom half of the door. I could still break it, and put up a new one, but it would keep glitching up.

There is a lot that can go wrong with circuits. You'll have to give a little more information, it is possible that this could just be an error in the circuit set up.

I've drawn up a diagram of roughly how I built it up




I've checked the circuitry and all the repeaters do light up when the switch is pressed but they don't lift the pistons

There is also a sand generator glitch using 3 normal and 3 sticky pistons. A friend showed me his last night. Soon as I have mine up and running, I will give a more detailed description of it. Guess it would come under glitch as would the Obsidian generator.

Nice one for that. Wasn't aware that there was a video otherwise I'd have linked it. Its still worked when my mate showed me his, and it makes a lot of sand quickly.

Had a random bug where my signs would disappear but were still there, they just couldn't be seen. Had to save and reload the world for them to show back up correctly.

Glitch - While in a dungeon, after going down a straight tunnel and developing a desperate need to get the hell out of there, I went back and found my path had completely disappeared, as if the cave had collapsed, despite everything being stone, not sand or gravel or anything like that. And it wasn't a matter of getting turned around, because after being horribly killed, I returned to get my stuff and had to dig through a few layers of rock to return to my stoney prison.

Glitch - Ghast fireballs no longer reflect back when I hit them with my sword. I could do it all the time before, but now they just explode harmlessly when I strike them.

Glitch - Minecraft will randomly start over the tutorial dialogue when I resume my game. I've already been playing for hours in this world, I don't need to be reminded how to mine.

Just a heads up, since uploading that, it's stopped working. The sand now either drops, or keeps getting pushed and pulled with no duping.
