Raspberry Pi - Install Minecraft - leaked pre release
Anyway, I've been waiting for minecraft to appear on the Pi since it was announced in Nov 2012, the api into the game really appeals and I'm really keen to play about with it and I cant believe I didn't know that a pre-release version was leaked. I was itching to have a go and this is how I installed it:
NOTE - The official release of Minecraft is now available, see this post for how to install Minecraft: Pi Edition.
Open LXTerminal from the X desktop
The pre-release was made available for download on dropbox.
Note - minecraft has to be run directly on the Pi, it wont work from ssh or via a desktop viewer e.g. TightVNC.
Be warned, this pre release version has a number of bugs.
Update - I've been playing around with the Minecraft API and have included a video and source code.
