Game Keeps Restarting

by emilward85 » Tue Jul 18, 2017 21:55

I am new to Minetest and/or Minecraft, so please excuse my ignorance. But, basically, I was in creative mode and after setting off a LOT of TNT, the game automatically closed out. Now when I restart the same game, it closes out Minetest as soon as the world loads. I think it is trying to continue where it last left off (before I set off the TNT). Is there anyway to continue this world or is deleting it my only solution? I'm using version 0.4.13 on Ubuntu Linux 16.04

Hello and welcome!

0.4.13 is really old. You should update to 0.4.16. The packages provided by the Ubuntu repositories may be out of date; using the PPA is the easiest option. Just follow the instructions on that page, then execute:
Code: Select all
sudo apt install minetest

If you still have errors after updating, please see this topic.

Yes, the repos are very out-of-date but I wasn't sure of how I could get the latest version without compiling it myself. I didn't realize there was a PPA for the recent version. Thank you, very much! That did it. Thanks again!
