How to Quit Minecraft Without Saving? (Singleplayer & Multiplayer)

How To Quit Without Saving Minecraft

More often than not, we wish to quit a game without having to worry about if our progress was saved, but in some instances, when it comes to Minecraft, we wish to revert back to the progress we made before we went online and started our gaming session. So, how do you quit Minecraft without saving?

To exit the game without saving, you’ll need to force-stop it. To do so, press ALT + F4 to open the task manager. Make sure you find the Minecraft Launcher and end the task. Another way to do it is to hold F3+C for around 10 seconds, activating the debug crash.

Why would one want to do this in Minecraft, and are there any risks involved? How about if you want to quit the age without saving on consoles? Let’s find out the answers to these questions and a lot more in the rest of this article.

Why would someone want to quit without saving their progress

In Minecraft, we can spend countless hours, days, or even months building out our dream base or something else entirely, only to find out we messed everything up by positioning the whole building one block to the right. Sometimes we learn that the build won’t work in the biome or fit in with the rest of our build.

From that point on, the only thing we can do is destroy the entire part of the building block by block, which is a mundane task that can take hours, depending on what you’re building with and whether or not you have the best enchantments on your tools.

Either way, we want to avoid wasting our time destroying and instead focus on the building, which is where quitting the game without saving comes in handy. Another reason someone wants to quit without saving is if they got lost in the vast Minecraft world and can’t be bothered to find their way back, again spending hours getting back to their base or starting point.

You could even use it to restore lost items if you died while playing out the session. Whatever you want to use this feature for, let’s dive deeply into how saving works in Minecraft.

How saving works in Minecraft

Minecraft frequently saves on its own, like most games, to prevent players from losing their progress if it suddenly crashes. This happens every 45 seconds, but the game is also saved whenever the player pauses the game and enters the game menu.

This means that no matter how hard you try to revert the progress, it’s likely that you won’t be able to pull it off. Your best option is to Alt+F4 right as you mess up, whatever that may be, without pausing the game since that will save it. If you’re desperate, you can still try and force exit, and some of your progress might still be reverted, but it’s not a guarantee.

Of course, you can’t Alt + F4 your way out of trouble on consoles or mobile phones, so how would one approach doing this in Bedrock Edition, whether it is a console or mobile phone?

Quitting without saving Bedrock Edition

On Bedrock Edition, if you’re a console player, the best chance you have of quitting without saving your progress is to turn off the device without actually exiting the game. This will revert the progress you made until the last auto-save, so better make it quick if there’s some specific progress you want to revert.

Luckily, you can turn off autosave if you’re a console player, whereas Java Edition users will have to manage another way, which I’ll get into later.

Turning off the autosave feature

To turn off the autosave feature as a console user, you’ll want to select a world and click on More Options. Once you’re in the new window, you should be able to see the ‘Disable Autosave’ option. Click on it, and once done, the only way to save your world progress will be to manually save it by quitting the game like you normally would.

Backing up world files

If you can’t find the disable autosave feature, you can always revert to the good ol’ trustworthy backup. Of course, this would have to be done every time before you begin your session, so let’s see how you can do that.

To back up your world, click on your world and choose the Edit button. From there, you’ll be able to see the ‘Make Backup’ button. Press it, and the world should back up. If you ever want to revert the progress, you can enter the world’s backup.

Reducing the autosave interval in Java Edition

Although disabling autosave won’t work on Java Edition, you can still make the autosave interval less frequent. It won’t work without Optifine, so before anything, make sure you have OptiFine installed.

Autosave Button Minecraft

Once you’re done, enter your world as you would normally and press ESC to go into the pause menu. From there, click on Video Setting and then Other. You should be able to see the autosave interval button. The most it’ll go is up to 24 minutes without saving which gives you enough time to mess up.

How it works in multiplayer

Although if you own a server, the game will be set to autosave by default, in your server settings, no matter the server provider you chose, you should be able to disable autosave, making it easier to quit without saving.

For example, if you run a Shockbyte server, disabling autosave will be in your multicraft panel under advanced settings. Make sure you give it a thorough search before giving up.

If you’re not the server owner, you’ll have to either ask for permission to change the settings or pray the server owner does it. Quick note, if you disable autosave, the feature will be disabled for all server participants, so make sure you notify them about the changes that took place.

Here’s Why Your Minecraft Skin Keeps Resetting & How to Solve It

Minecraft Skins resetting

Minecraft doesn’t allow for endless customization when it’s a matter of adding your own personality to the game. It makes up for it because you can do practically anything in the world, but for those that want customization to be more straightforward, you can choose to upload your own skin instead of using one of the defaults. What if there’s a bug and you can’t show your skin off? Why does your Minecraft skin keep resetting, and how do you fix it?

The main reason why your Minecraft skin might keep resetting is that you’re probably offline. If getting online doesn’t help, you might also want to try and reset your skin on, or you might just have to wait it out because the problem is with skin servers and not you.

Are there ways to completely get around the reasons for skins resetting, and are there any other reasons why it might happen? How long has this issue been a thing, and why does it keep resurfacing as a problem? Let’s explore the answers to all the questions you might have in the rest of this article.

The basics of skin resetting

Before I go into detail about why your skin might keep resetting, I first want to move out of the way the likeliest reason why your skin might not show up in the first place. I do have to say that you might not always be the problem. Sometimes the people you’re playing with are the problem, and they must also change their settings.

In Minecraft, under Options, there’s a ‘Skins’ tab. You can go there and ensure the option to hide skins isn’t toggled on. This is a viable solution to the problem only if your skin never showed in the first place.


How to Add Friends in Minecraft Java Edition?

Skins resetting on servers

Usually, we use skins to show them off to our friends and the people on servers. It’s a simple way to be recognized and stay remembered, but often, your skin will reset to the default Steve, Alex, or with newer versions of Minecraft, one of the seven other skins that have been added in 1.19.

The skins keep resetting on servers because everyone on the server is signed into Xbox Live, and when that’s the case, your custom skin can only be used for a limited time before it resets. To make a long story short, whenever you exit the game, it’ll change your skin to the last one you wore before the custom one.

To fix this, you’ll need to delete your cache. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go into your search bar on your desktop and type in temporary files
  2. You’ll then either be able to delete temporary files right from the search bar, or you will be able to enter the temporary internet files and then select the ‘Delete Files’ option.
  3. Deleting your cache on the computer should also delete the Minecraft cache.

If you are worried about what will happen when you delete your cache, let’s see the potential risks of deleting your cache and how you can do it on a console.

As suggested in the guide on how to delete cached data, this is only temporary data and will not affect your gameplay, nor will it delete your worlds. You can also clear cached data on consoles. I’ll give you an example of how to clear cached data in Minecraft Bedrock Edition.

Clearing the cache should be the same across all platforms since Bedrock Edition has the option built into the game itself.

  1. Open Minecraft, and in the main menu, go into Settings.
  2. Then, scroll down and head on over to Storage.
  3. Once there, go into Multi Select
  4. Then, click on Cached Data and select all of the resource packs that you found there.
  5. Once you’ve selected all of them, click on Delete, and you’re done

Other players can’t see your skin, but you can

This problem has nothing to do with you and more with the settings of other players. If the players are your friends, you can ask them to change their settings for them to see your skin. If the problem is with other players that are a part of some larger server, likely, you won’t be able to do anything about it.

Apart from the option to hide skins, you also have the option to only allow trusted skins. By trusted skins, Minecraft is likely thinking about skins that you bought through their store.

To disable this option, players will have to go into Settings while in Minecraft, go to Profile, and toggle the Only Allow Trusted Skins option off. This will not, in any way, put you at risk of catching a virus r something else entirely.

Disabling the only allow trusted skins option Minecraft

Adding your skin as the default

Minecraft skins resetting isn’t something new. It has been a problem for some ever since the game officially launched. Back then, players used to fix the problem by adding their skin as the default. This means they made the game think their skin is the default, Steve’s or Alex’s.

They used to do this by changing the resource/texture pack folder, finding the default Steve or Alex skin, and switching it up with your chosen skin. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since you could do this.

How Long Is a Fortnite Match?

How Long is A Fortnite Match

In today’s world, we’re surrounded by shorter content that gets us that dopamine high so that we can get it all over again once we change the channel, so to speak, to get another dopamine high all over again. Besides, the world is getting increasingly fast-paced, and we no longer have as much time to grind out our favorite games. With all these things considered, would you have the time to throw in a quick round of Fortnite, though? How long is a Fortnite match, exactly?

Numerous factors affect how long a Fortnite match is, but on average, you’ll have to set aside an average of 20 minutes for a single game of Fortnite. Of course, this is the time it’ll take you to end the match if you plan on winning or at least want to get close to winning.

So how is one Fortnite match conceived, and is there any way that a match might last longer than that? What was the longest Fortnite match ever, and is there a limit to how long a match can last? Let’s find the answers to these and many other questions in the rest of this article.

The longest Fortnite match

We must mention a few notable matches before getting into the longest Fortnite match in history. In 2020, a new record for the longest Fortnite match was set. It was made by Lazarbeam, an Australian Youtuber and professional gamer who played a match of Fortnite that lasted 1 hour, 15 minutes, and 39 seconds.

After the record was set, the X2Twins beat it quickly, but only by 2 minutes. The record was broken once more shortly after by Creamy and Lachlan, which made the X2Twins try and beat the record again. The record to beat was 10 minutes longer than their first set world record. Crazy enough, they beat the record again by over 30 minutes.

In total, the twins were in a single Fortnite match for 1 hour, 52 minutes, and 48 seconds and there is a chance that this record will never be broken again, but why is that?

Storm sickness

Storm sickness is a mechanic in Fortnite that gives players a debuff. It’s fairly simple to understand. When you enter a storm area, you will begin losing health until you enter a safe zone. The storm area grows and shrinks the playing area. Essentially, it forces the players to end the match early.


10 Reasons Why You Are Bad at Fortnite (& How to Fix Them!)

There are 12 phases to the storm, but after the ninth circle, the storm no longer has a grace period nor a shrink time. The storm eye is the safe zone you can be in during the storm. So keeping in mind that eventually, the storm will kill all players in a match, how long will it take for the storm to completely close in and kill all players and end the match prematurely?

The Storm

Maximum Fortnite match duration limit

Well, every storm cycle has a grace period: the time it takes for the storm to start moving and closing in and a shrink time that decreases as you go through the storm cycles.

The storm forms 1 minute after the battle bus reaches its last stop. Let’s round it up and say that the battle bus reaches the last stop in 1 minute. In the first storm cycle, you have a 2-minute grace period and a 2-minute shrink time. The 2nd cycle has a 1-minute 30-second grace and shrink period; the third cycle has a 1-minute 45-second grace period and a 1-minute 30-second shrink period. The 5th, 6th, and 7th cycles all have a 1-minute grace and shrink period. Overall, the storm will completely close in without any storm eye to protect you in a little under 25 minutes. From then on, it’s just a matter of you surviving the storm, but that’s hardly likely.

So the duration limit depends on how fast the storm closes in. The storm duration and how fast it closes in can change as new versions are released. For example, in previous versions, the storm only had nine cycles, and the first cycle grace period was 3 minutes and 20 seconds. I won’t go into all the details, but the match duration will depend on the developers and how they think the game should be balanced regarding playtime.

The shortest Fortnite match

Funnily enough, the shortest Fortnite match lasted only 1 second. Of course, this can’t mean that the match was actually played. Instead, a player named GlitchKing, as his name would suggest, exploited an error that made him win the match after all the other players left.

Match length depends on skill level

This claim might frustrate some people, but that match length will indeed, individually, depend on skill level. Once you’re killed in Fortnite, you won’t respawn and continue playing like in Deathmatch game modes in other games. Once you’re dead, you’ll be presented with the score and your final placement. After that point, you leave the game, so for all you know, in your personal experience, a match can last 5 minutes.

The better you are at the game, the higher the chance for you to finish first, which means you’ll play the entirety of the match. If not, you’ll play for a shorter amount of time.

Minecraft 1.20 Update ‘Trails & Tales’ Has an Official Release Date

Minecraft 1.20 Update Trails Tales Has an Official Release Date

Following a lengthy silence, fans of the planetary popular sandbox game Minecraft can rejoice as the release date for the long-awaited ‘Trails & Tales’ update has been revealed. 

‘Trails & Tales’ will arrive on June 7, 2023, Mojang revealed on social media.

The ‘Trails & Tales’ Update introduces several new features to Minecraft 1.20. It includes a new biome called the cherry grove, which is rare but beautiful with its pink appearance. Two new wood sets, bamboo and cherry, will be added, allowing players to craft and build with them. The bamboo wood set includes a raft that can be crafted with or without a chest.

A new mob called the camel will be introduced, which can be ridden by one or two players. The camel has long legs that allow it to travel anywhere, providing a safe mode of transportation as melee mobs cannot reach the rider. 

The second mob added to the game is the Sniffer. This was decided during Minecraft’s 2022 community mob vote. This gentle giant was once extinct but can now be brought back to the Overworld by finding its eggs, hatching them, and watching the snifflet grow into a full-grown sniffer. 

Cherry Blossom biome Minecraft

Players will also be able to share their stories through wearable storytelling. Armor trims are being added, which can be found in different dimensions of Minecraft. These trims can be dyed in ten different colors and added to armor using a smithing table, allowing players to showcase their victories and accomplishments to others.


New Soundtrack Released for the Upcoming Minecraft Trails & Tales Update

New features also include the ability to hang signs, providing a way to leave notes for friends or deceive enemies. Players can now create playable mob sounds by placing a mob head, including the new piglin mob head, on a note block. 

For those who want to document their adventures, a new chiseled bookshelf will be added, where players can safely store books, enchanted books, and even books and quills. Redstone can be added to the bookshelf for added movement, creating a dynamic library experience.

The update also brings calibrated skulk sensors, which are more sensitive and offer exciting possibilities for redstone contraptions.

The ‘Trails & Tales’ update will be available for download on June 7 for Minecraft: Java Edition on Windows, macOS, and Linux; and Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and Chromebook.
