    Locating Server~ Minecraft


    Every time I try to join my friends Minecraft game, it just says locating server. They have tried to join my game, and it has also said locating server. I am able to join other people, and we can both get on the general servers, but no one can get on my
    friend's game. Both of our NAT's are open, and we've both uninstalled and reinstalled Minecraft. Prior to this problem, we were able to join each other's games, but I dont have a clue as to what changed. What would either of us have to do to be able to join
    each others' games?

    :)

    You can verify that your console or that of your friend are not in the insider program and some of them have a beta version installed

    Hi Nancy,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help troubleshoot the issue.

    From your description, it sounds like the issue might be stemming from your friend's saved world since you can both join general servers, you can join other friend's servers, and nobody else seems to be able to join your friend's personal server.

    What device is your friend playing on? Have either of you create a new world for testing to see if you can join each other at all?

    It could be that the world is corrupted and hangs when trying to join multiplayer.

    I would also recommend a hard reboot of both devices.

    Hey there NancyKitchen

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forums community for advice on how hopefully to get connected to your friend's game. I can understand how this could totally dampen your gaming experience.

    Is this the only game you guys are having problems with?

    I would say that is the case, I would definitely try getting in touch with
    Mojang's support
    directly as they would have the best info as to whether or not there's something up with their servers.

    When you get a chance, get in contact with them and let us know if that helped.

    Thanks for reading!

    Neither of us have the insider program on the consoles that we are using (xbox one). We have also rebooted both of our consoles, and it still has not worked, and we have both stated new games, and are not able to join them.
