Android Problems

by KeatonJamesHenke » Tue Dec 11, 2018 02:18

Hello all, it's been a long time. I was in the hospital for 2 emergency surgeries on my colon and almost died. Not the point though. I've come back to Mine test and I miss it.

I am having consistent problems with my game. It sometimes never loads the home screen and quits to my home screen or doesn't load worlds, and if it does, it gets really laggy. I can't run a lot of mods in single player due to lag.

Any help?

How can you say that Minetest on Android is not official when the Minetest Downloads Page itself offers a .apk directly?

There is an official Android Minetest app but there are also unofficial ones.

iOS is the mobile platform with no official client whatsoever.

OP: The current Minetest version on Android ( is still very buggy and bad. You should wait until 5.0.0 releases. Until then either deal with those crashes or try an unofficial client.

And the 'lag' (which actually means frame drops client side) can have many reasons. It's likely that your device just has not enough CPU/RAM to run Minetest with mods at full fps.
