Watch our Pocket Edition dev stream at 17:00 CEST!

Could these be the most handsome games developers in the world? No - that's obviously TOM FRANCIS.

Happy Monday everyone!

Today’s the day of the Pocket Edition panel! As I mentioned last week, the Minecraft: Pocket Edition developers will be taking questions from this reddit thread and answering them LIVE on air. There’s still time to submit your questions, so over there and get inquisitive!

It’s all in celebration of us reaching 20 million sales last week. We’ve actually reached 21 million to-date, but that’s not as catchy a milestone, so let’s roll with the 20 million for now.

See you at 17:00 CEST – click the time to see when it’s happening in your timezone.

Ask the Pocket Edition devs (almost) anything

Pocket Edition 0.9

Greetings!

This Monday, Minecraft: Pocket Edition developers Johan, Tommaso and Jens will star in a panel broadcast live from the Mojang office. What will they be discussing? That’s up to you.

We’re hoping to harness the collective power of our Pocket Edition players to submit questions to this reddit thread. Then we’ll pick the best ones and put them to the team live on air. We’re not sure of the exact time we’ll be streaming yet, but don’t worry if you miss the live show; the archived footage will be uploaded later on.

This is all in celebration of hitting over 20m sales of Pocket Edition just a few days ago. As I mentioned in the Xbox 360 Edition post, we’re extremely grateful to all players for your dedication and creativity. Without that, Minecraft wouldn’t be anywhere near as significant as it is today.

So yeah, head to the reddit thread and submit your questions! Then check back on Monday for the live stream/archived footage!

Have a good day,

Owen, Johan, Tomasso and Jens.

Heartbleed, and why you should change your password

Two days ago a serious vulnerability (that’s been named “Heartbleed”) in the popular cryptographic software OpenSSL was made public. This weakness could potentially be exploited to steal information, such as login information, that normally would be protected by encryption. This software is used by roughly two thirds of the internet so a lot of services were or are at risk of being affected.

What did Mojang do?

As soon as we realized the severity of the exploit we decided to shut down all of our systems until a fix was available. This is why you were unable to log in yesterday. We then made sure that all of our services that use SSL no longer had this vulnerability before bringng them back online. We also updated all of our SSL certificates.

What should I do?

Change your Mojang/Minecraft account password

Since uses of the exploit leaves no traces, there’s no way for us to guarantee that your password hasn’t been compromised. Therefore, if you typed in your password into any of our games or websites during the last couple of days we strongly advice you to change it. Even if you haven’t logged in, it can still be a good idea the to change your password. One can never be too careful on the internet!

Change the password of your Mojang account

Change the password of your Minecraft account

Also see our help article on choosing a good password.

Change your other passwords

Remember that since many other parts of the internet was affected as well you should also change your password for any other services that you have logged in to recently.

Anything else that I need to know?

Legacy launcher discontiuned

Due to this incident we’ve been forced to discontinue support for the legacy Minecraft launcher (the one used before version 1.6). If you’re using a Minecraft version older than 1.6 you need to download the current launcher (version 1.3.11) from minecraft.net. The current launcher lets you play older versions of Minecraft as well so you can still play on your pre-1.6 servers.

For developers

Since the legacy launcher no longer works we are also retiring the old login.minecraft.net service. If you have created your own Minecraft authentication that uses this scheme you will need to migrate it to the new authentication scheme. The new authentication scheme is described in this community wiki.

Minecraft 1.7.6

Version 1.7.6 is now officially released. This version contains some bugfixes, a few updates to make Realms even better than it already is and prepares Minecraft for the renaming feature that will eventually allow you to rename your player. The renaming feature will not be available right now, but this is an important step towards it. We have also changed the internal handling of player skins to make use of our new, improved skin servers.

Unfortunately the 1.7.6 version is not compatible with 1.7.5 (or earlier) servers. Please update your servers to 1.7.6, this is also an important step to prepare them for the upcoming 1.8 release. Servers should automatically update all player profiles to the new format, but please make sure that you are in the correct server mode (online mode/offline mode) when you start the 1.7.6 server for the first time, because profiles are not compatible between these two server modes.

Because this is important, let me repeat that last sentence:
Please make sure that you are in the correct server mode (online mode/offline mode) when you start the 1.7.6 server for the first time, because profiles are not compatible between these two server modes.

You can find more information about the 1.7.6 update in the frequently asked questions section of our previous post.

Battlefield 4 Platoons: New Improvements


With a new update to Battlefield 4 Platoons, it’s even easier for Platoon members to connect and play together. Read on and learn how to see what server your Platoon members are playing on, plus various other features

Released a month ago, Platoons for Battlefield 4 have made it possible for players to get together in larger numbers and show the world where they belong. For us at DICE, it’s been a treat to see the community create thousands of Platoons, recruit new members, and design creative emblems.

Learn the basics of Battlefield 4 Platoons 

With our latest Battlelog update, we’ve made it possible for you to see on what servers your Platoon members are playing.

Locate Your Platoon Members

If you head to Platoons on Battlelog, you’ll notice a new tab called Servers. Under this tab, you’ll see a list of all your Platoon members currently playing Battlefield 4. Here you can scroll through the servers that your fellow Platoon members are playing on, and jump in their game if you want to help them out.

PlatoonServers

Servers hosting the highest number of your Platoon members are placed at the top.

Increased Member Cap
We have also added the number of Platoon members you can have in your Platoon. This is based on what rank your Battlefield 4 soldier has reached. If you’ve reached rank 5, the member cap is 150. If you’ve reached rank 10, the member cap is 200. There are many other improvements and tweaks done to Platoons, like automated subscriptions to Platoon wall posts and comments. Find the full change log on the Battlelog Forums.

Give Us Your Feedback
We hope you will enjoy this added new feature to Platoons, and the many more that we are planning for the future. We truly appreciate your feedback, and will use it to further improve Platoons in Battlefield 4. Give us your feedback in the comments below or in the “Platoons Feedback” thread on Battlelog.

Introducing Battlefield 4 Loadout Presets


Going into battle prepared is key to succeeding in Battlefield 4. With the new Loadout Presets, we’ve made it easier for you to quickly hit the Battlefield with the exact kit and vehicle Loadout of your choice.

Prepared 4 Battle – Every Time

Loadout Presets are a way to save kit or vehicle setups so that you can easily switch between them when going into a Battlefield 4 multiplayer match. With this time-saving feature, you no longer have to edit each slot individually in the Customize screen when you want to change your Loadout. Note that Loadout Presets will only be available on Battlelog in Battlefield 4, and not be reflected in-game. You apply Presets to your Loadout, which then follows you in-game when you save it.

For example, those who want quick access to a “field engineer” Preset can create one of these with the MX4, SRAW, Repair Tool, and Mechanic specialization – or any other combination of the player’s choice. If you are more of a combat engineer, you might want to create a preset with the M1014 shotgun, RPG, M2 SLAM, and Offensive specialization – it’s all up to you.

You can have two presets per kit and vehicle, or four if you’re a Battlefield 4 Premium member.

This allows you to quickly switch between setups based off the map or game mode you’re loading into without wasting time going through the Customize screens in-game.

Creating and Managing Loadout Presets

Your Loadout Presets can be accessed through Battlelog as well as its mobile and tablet applications. Simply head to the Loadout section on Battlelog, and hit the Presets button that appears upon hovering over a kit or vehicle. Here you’ll be able to choose to save your existing kit/vehicle Loadout as a new Preset, or load an existing Preset. Additionally, Presets are accessible from a kit or vehicle page, next to the “Save” and “Reset” buttons

You can have 2 Presets per kit and vehicle (or 4 if you’re a Premium user). The Preset you last chose will stay until you apply a new Preset or change your Loadout from Battlelog or in-game and will display the Preset name in the place of the kit or vehicle name.

This allows you to quickly switch between setups based off the map or game mode you’re loading into, without wasting time going through the Customize screens in-game.

Creating and Managing Loadout Presets

Your Loadout Presets can be accessed through Battlelog and its mobile and tablet applications. Simply head to the Loadout menu on Battlelog, and hit the Presets button. Here you’ll be able to choose slots for your presets, and give them names. To apply a preset, simply click a dropdown menu and select a used slot to apply that preset.

You can have 2 presets per kit and vehicle (or 4 if you’re a Premium user). The preset you last chose will stay until you apply a new preset, or change your loadout from Battlelog or in-game.

Loadouts are available on Battlelog as well as on the mobile and tablet applications.

If you head to the Presets Management page, accessible by clicking “Manage” from the Presets dropdown, you’ll get an overview of all the Presets you have created. Here, you can browse through your Presets, delete them, or apply a bunch of them before you save your Loadout.

Rolling out on April 8

The Loadout Presets are rolling out with the Battlelog update on April 8. We will continue to tweak and add functions to the feature, based on your feedback and comments. Don’t hesitate to tell us what you think about the Loadout Presets, and we hope you will enjoy going into battle using the feature!

You’ve bought Minecraft for Xbox 12m times. Thanks!

These are the guys responsible for the PC/Mac version of Minecraft. From left to right: Ryan, Erik, Jens, El Notcho, Michael, Nathan, and Oversized Clock.

Hello!

As mentioned by the bigwigs at Microsoft, we’ve sold 12 million copies of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Hoo! That’s loads! It might even be a record.

We’d like to offer our heartfelt thanks to all players on Microsoft’s console. Without your passion and creativity, Minecraft wouldn’t be anywhere near as significant as it is today. The same goes for anyone enjoying Minecraft on PC/Mac, Playstation 3, iOS and Android. You’re all equally nice.

Our porters at 4J also deserve a mention for their skills. Keep it up, dudes!
