Get Minecraft Full Version Minecraft Running On A Raspberry Pi
Raspbian is installed on your Raspberry Pi. This will allow you to find Minecraft Pi in the Games section. Minecraft Pi is a bare-bones version of the well-known survival game that was designed to students learn various programming languages.
Sure, it's fun but it's not the Minecraft game we've come recognize and enjoy. A group of Raspberry Pi users has figured out how you can install Minecraft fully-featured on your Raspberry Pi 2, or 3.
There's plenty to edit and tweaking with files and Terminal commands, just like everything on the Raspberry Pi. You should take your time and read through each step.
Be aware that prior to you begin there are some important things you should be aware of:
You'll require your Mojang account login details and your Minecraft username.
You will need a paid Minecraft license. You can purchase one from Minecraft.net
This guide is only applicable to Minecraft 1.8.9. However, with a small modification you can run the latest version, currently 1.9.4 (more on this below).
Running Minecraft on a computer that costs $35 isn't the smoothest experience, but it's definitely playable.
Plan to spend an hour getting everything up and running.
I would suggest opening this guide on the browser on your Raspberry Pi and then a Terminal window next to it. You'll need to download altered log files from Dropbox. I don't want to post the commands here only to have them altered later.
The process is simple, mostly requiring you to copy and paste Terminal commands from the browser, pasting them into the command line. After pasting each command in, press enter on the keyboard and your Pi will take care of the rest.
Tips to make the process as smooth as possible Here are some ideas I came up with to make the process go as smoothly as it can:
Step 1 doesn't apply to Raspberry Pi 3 users. Currently you cannot overclock the Pi 3. Besides it, the Pi 3 is actually faster out of the box than the recommended overclock speed of the Pi 2.
After you have entered Step 4's command, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight Advanced options and then press Enter. Next, highlight GL Options, select Enable.
Step 7 of the guide confused me. It states that you need to click "edit profile" However, you must click Profile Editor , and then double-click on the first listing. Under Version Selection click on the drop-down next to Use version and select the appropriate build number. The default guide is 1.8.9. This version is the one we recommend for now. We will change it when everything is in place.
Step 10 requires you to edit "run.sh" without further instructions. To do this you need to open the Minecraft folder that is located within your Pi directory and right-click on the run.sh file, then select Text Editor.
There are two options to launch Minecraft. The guide will tell you to use "./run.sh" in Terminal to start Minecraft. While this is a good option, you will need to type "cd Minecraft", before entering the command. Another option is to open the Minecraft folder, double-click on the run.sh file and select "Execute."
Start the latest version. You can now begin to play around with the installation. To upgrade to the latest Minecraft version, you'll have to relaunch Minecraft.jar.
In a Terminal window, enter the following:"cd" Minecraft
Next, enter: java -jar Minecraft.jar
Click on Profile Editor, then change the version to 1.9.4 (or whatever the latest version is).

Save your changes and then click the Play button, causing Minecraft to download the latest version.
Next, open the Minecraft folder.
To avoid any issues if you commit a mistake, you should make a backup of the run.sh file. Change the name to "runcopy.sh".
Make sure you have a copy of the file. Then, right-click on it and choose Text Editor.
Enter 1.8.9 into the text field by pressing Ctrl+F on your keyboard. There should be at minimum two instances. Replace each with the latest version of Minecraft (this must be the same version you chose in step 3).
Save the file, then restart your Raspberry Pi.
Launch Minecraft like you normally would and then enjoy.
