Minecraft have recently released an update to version 1.19. We currently support 1.16.5 for coding. We'll be releasing our update to servers to support this in the very near future. The issue is due to a bug in Minecraft that means switching worlds is very very slow, an experience we don't think coders should experience.

Not to worry though! You can still enjoy all your Minecraft creations by switching to the previous Java edition of Minecraft, 1.16.5. πŸ’» This is super quick, easy and reversible at any time - we'll show you how to do it here.

First, head to the Minecraft launcher. If your version of Minecraft does not have a launcher, ensure you're using the Java Edition of Minecraft. Once you're logged in, it should look something like this:

Then click on Installations, in the top row of tabs. You should see some rows of installations of Minecraft, like this:

Click "New", along the top row. You should see a window appear. Name your new installation something like "Code Kingdoms 1.16.5" and select 1.16.5 from the drop-down menu on the right.

The list may be somewhat long, but you can scroll down to 1.16.5 if it is showing all the beta versions for you.

Click "Create" when you're done. Your new installation should appear in the list. You can click "Play" from here with the installation selected if you'd like.Β Please note these screenshots have different version numbers to the one you need to select for this minor update.

Alternatively, you can go back to the "Play" tab at the top and change the default installation at the bottom. A menu should pop up when you click "Latest release", similar to below:

Select your new "Code Kingdoms" installation, then click Play, and your copy of Minecraft will launch and will be fully compatible with the Code Kingdoms platform!

To switch back to the latest version, just click the drop down again in the list and use "latest release". You can freely switch between the versions at any time 😁.
