Today we're launching the initial public beta of cross play between Bedrock edition and Java edition! This update is the result of months of hard work of multiple people on the Super League engineering team.
This means that iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices can now connect to Minehut and all player servers on Bedrock 1.8. Xbox, Wii, Switch, and other devices are not supported as they don't allow manually entering servers to join other than the official partnered servers.
Bedrock players can have spaces in their names as well as the same name as a Java edition player. To combat this, we are prefixing all PE names with asterisks and replacing spaces with underscores. My
feel my mango Xbox live account name turns into
*feel_my_mango when connecting to Minehut.
Bedrock accounts are completely separate from Java accounts.
All servers still run on Spigot 1.12.2, and our custom Bedrock proxy translates Java packets into Bedrock packets so that both can play on the same server. Because of this, each Java feature needs to be translated to Bedrock. For this initial beta, we only have features that were needed to run Super League Minecraft events so expect there to be a lot of things missing or not be compatible with Bedrock. Some of this is known to us, and some isn't, which is why we need your help collecting feedback and issues on this beta!
- Warzone does not support Bedrock yet
- Bedrock players don't see skins
Since this is an early beta, we expect there to be plenty of issues and features that aren't implemented. Please report and suggest everything on the forums https://forums.minehut.com/forums/5c1a952143ff113c0ca61ce2 and make sure to include:
- Device type
- Server where this happened
- Step by step description of how to reproduce the issue
pe.minehut.com on Bedrock 1.8. Check out the screenshots below for a step by step. There is a barebones modal that replaces the server menu GUI. Please suggest improvements for it :)
