Ever since gaming has started, free copies of Minecraft have gone under various changes and revisions. The biggest one is updating the launcher to 1.6. This disabled the Java embed functionality of the free Minecraft version. These regular revisions and interesting changes make Minecraft a favorite among the existing players as well as the new ones.
Here is a list of platforms the game can be played on:
- Android and iOS devices
- Xbox 360
- Raspberry Pi
Players can easily configure Minecraft on Linux to play and enjoy the game. It is also really easy to be able to play the game on Windows. However, EMedia Pro believes the XBLA retail disc version shouldn’t be free medium, as it is not digital.
Minecraft is a game of freeing the players’ creativity. This game is popular for its adventure element, treasure hunts, and the scope of mental ability and creativity of the players. Another popular feature is its maps. Hunger Games is one of the most played maps online. Other maps include PvP Factions, where The players have to build a city of their own and survive from the hostile creatures and players. If the enemies attack the player and make him or her ‘dead’, the city will be ruined, and the player has to start all over again. Once the players are ‘dead’ they will have to find all the treasure again. All the treasure that was hunted when they were alive will be scattered. Again, the players need to collect all their resources and hunt again. You will also have to survive as long as you can from the monsters so that your treasures stay safe at one place. Such things are the thrills of the free Minecraft game, which can be seen as a medium to express your imagination.
How to Install and Configure Minecraft (Free)
Configuring Minecraft to play free online isn’t a difficult task. Just log on to the net and download the file from any site after searching from the search engines. Once done, execute the file and you can start playing. First, you have to download the free Minecraft version and keep all the files in the folder from where you want to execute them in future. In order to play Minecraft on Windows, you have to download the Java version 6 or later to run your game smoothly, because all other versions may abort the file execution of Minecraft. Next, running the .exe file will automatically configure your game. While installing the game you might get error messages popping up onto the screen. Just ignore the messages and continue installing Minecraft.
After this you have to increase the memory of your Minecraft server. This could be achieved easily by writing the following code in a notepad file.
“C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe” –Xmx1024M –Xms1024M -jar “Minecraft_Server.exe”.
After done, just paste this code in the same folder and it will increase the memory from 100MB to 1024MB (1GB). One last thing that you need to do is change the name of the file to “run.bat” and then save it to the Minecraft folder.
As you enjoy Minecraft free with eMedia Pro, it would be very difficult for your computer to cope up with the bundle of pressure. This pressure on computer will disrupt the free Minecraft game, forcing the game to stop mid-way. This may be very annoying some time for the players. At this time you may need to pay for the Minecraft server. After paying for the server you can play the game smoothly on your Windows PC. Paying for the Minecraft server will also ensure the greater sustainability and quality of the game that you will never regret your decision.
