If you’re anything like us, then you’ve probably experienced a fair share of Minecraft Pocket Edition crashes. While it might be slightly frustrating when your game unexpectedly closes, there’s a lot you can learn from these. After all, every game has bugs here and there — the important thing is how quickly you react to them. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait long for updates this time around. As it turns out, Mojang is already hard at work on the next update for their mobile title. In fact, they even released an early build of the software yesterday — so that leaves us with just one question: what could they possibly have planned? Luckily we don’t need to wait much longer to find out either; and if the developer changelog is anything to go by, then we should see some big changes soon. Here’s how to fix Minecraft PE crashes once and for all…
Check For Updates Before Playing
You don’t need to know the ins-and-outs of what the next update will bring, but you should definitely check for any new version updates on your device. Sometimes a new build can cause a bug to manifest itself, and it’s important to be on the lookout for these. Of course, you can’t do this if your game is crashing — so make sure to check for new updates as soon as possible. If your game is crashing regularly, it may be due to an old version of Minecraft. You should check your game’s version and make sure it’s up-to-date. If you can’t find an update, try deleting the Java Applet cache on your device. This clears out any old files, and it should make it easier for you to find new updates.
Make Sure You’re Up To Date
Whether you’re looking for an update to your game or not, it’s important to make sure you’re up-to-date. If you have an out-of-date version of Minecraft, then you could end up with the same problems we’re experiencing right now. The most important thing to remember here is that you should only be using the most recent version of Minecraft on your device. This is because Mojang is constantly updating their software, and it’s always a good idea to stay up-to-date. You can check for an update on any device. Just go to your game’s settings and make sure you’re on the “Update” tab. On Android devices, you can also get updates through the Google Play Store.
Delete The Java Applet Cache
When your game crashes and you attempt to open it again, one of the first things you’ll want to do is open up your settings. However, if your game is still crashing, you’ll probably find it a little difficult to access. But don’t worry, because we have a solution for this. The first thing you need to do is reset your device to its default settings. This will delete any third-party software you have installed on your device, which will make it a little easier to access the settings menu. Now that you’re back in the game, your next step should be to delete the Java Applet cache. If you’re not sure where this is, most devices have an option to turn this on or off. Delete the cache, reboot your device, and then try opening up your game again — you should see a significant difference.
Try Rebooting Your Device
There are a few things you can do to reboot your device if it’s constantly crashing on you. However, you should only do this as a last resort. First things first, you’ll want to make sure you’re on the latest build. While we mentioned that earlier, we know it’s easy to get behind. Make sure to check your game’s version and make sure it’s the most recent one possible. Secondly, you want to make sure your device is charged to 100%. This isn’t the most important thing, but it could help. Now that you’ve taken care of those issues, try rebooting your device. It could be a permissions issue caused by new software; and even if it’s not, rebooting can sometimes be enough to fix a crashing issue. Just make sure you’re not doing anything important before rebooting your device. You don’t want to end up needing to reboot completely because of this.
Reset Your Device To Its Default Settings
Most users are probably aware of this tip, but we figured we’d include it as a quick solution to your crashing woes. The only thing you need to do is follow the steps below. First, you’ll want to navigate to your game’s settings menu. From here, make sure you’re on the “Reset Device Settings” option. Next, make sure to select your device from the list and press the “Reset” button. Now your device will restart, and it will return to its default settings. You will lose any data you may have stored on your device, but this should fix crashing issues.
Check For New Updates Again
We’ve already discussed why you need to check for updates, but we’ll say it again for good measure. Now that you’ve reset your device and rebooted your device, make sure to check your game’s settings to see if there’s a new update. If so, then you should be all set. Keep doing this for a while, and you should be able to find the update in no time. However, make sure to update before you play as well! We’ve already discussed why this is important, but it’s worth mentioning again.
Play Offline If Necessary
If you’ve reset your device, rebooted, and checked for updates, then you should be good to go. However, if you still don’t see any improvements, then you may have to play offline. This option will force your device to play the game without an internet connection. This should help to clear up any issues that are causing your device to crash. Just remember to reset your device again after you’ve played offline, and don’t forget to reboot your device.
Avoid Crashy Gameplay Tips And Tricks
These tips and tricks should help you out in certain situations. However, you should keep in mind that they’re just that — fixes. They may help you get by for a little while, but they won’t be long for around. Now that you’ve tried everything you can, you may have to start looking for new hardware. This doesn’t mean that you need to get a new device, just make sure to get the best one you can afford. There’s also a chance that the game is completely broken, and you may have to upgrade to a new version. If this is the case, then we have good news — Mojang is working on a new update.
These tips and tricks should help you to get your crashing issues under control. However, if they still aren’t working, you may need to try a different device, or upgrade to a newer version of Minecraft. Make sure to reboot your device, delete the Java Applet cache, reset your device to its default settings, and play offline if necessary. These are all things you can do on your own, and they don’t cost much money. Hopefully, these tips will help you to get your crashing issues under control — and if not, you should be able to upgrade to a newer device or even trade up for a new one.
