How To Install Minecraft 1.9.3 snapshot
The Minecraft 1.9.3 pre-release patch is now available only via snapshot. If you want to test it out, you will need to open the game’s launcher and click on “New Profile” and name it “snapshots” or whatever you want. You will also need to make sure that the box named “Enable experimental development snapshot” is checked and save it. Now, go back to your worlds and run the game from a different folder, as they are usually very unstable.
HINT: You will be able to use this profile for the future snapshots.
In the meantime, Minecraft has received the second pre-release of 1.9.3 containing four important bug fixes: Endermen are no longer aggressive when you’re looking at their head/feet; Notch skin appeared black; game was crashing when joining the server or when opening the redstone world; game was crashing after one or two hours.
Is your game crashing more often than before or it is more stable? Have you found any issues and reported them to developers?
