It was only a few short weeks ago the Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition gained its highly sought after 1.7.3 patch, giving us loads of new trinkets to play with, such as autosave options, piston mechanics, and shears. Unfortunately, this included a whole slew of new bugs to address. Luckily, Mojang and Microsoft have released a new patch to correct these minor problems and get Minecraft back on track.
This new patch doesn’t add any new content to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, but takes care of annoying issues which take away from the overall pleasant experience. Here is a list of all the changes Mojang and Microsoft have made to the game:
-Fix for a crash with pistons at the edge of the world
-Fix for a crash due to a thread safety issue usually caused by pistons
-Fix for issue with operating pistons on chunk boundaries
-Fix for a rendering flicker with active pistons
-Fix for rendering slowdown due to lighting issues
-Fix for rain going through blocks (raining indoors)
-Fix for Marketplace not launching when unlocking skin pack after selecting a locked skin in the trial version of the skin pack
-Fix for bug allowing locked skins to be selected if they are beside a free skin
-Fix for misaligned player scores when viewed under the "My Score" leaderboard filter
-Fix for the constant button press sounds when rotating a character in the skin select screen
-Fix for the constant sound effect played on the sign text entry
-Fix for thunder not being audible
-Fix for third person front view not displaying fire
