    Minecraft Locating Server issues


    Hello I recently played Minecraft with my friends on creative with a few mods and then I was able to join just fine but then after I left and came back I would be stuck on a locating server screen we tried removing the mods reinstalling the mods making a copy and nothing has worked I have restarted my computer multiple times and reinstalled Minecraft so I don't know if this is a permanent bug or if there's a fix it is also updated to the latest version

    This is also a problem for the PS4 Bedrock version.This has also been happening to be. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times, backing up saves deleting them and downloading them for months but nothing has worked. Is there any fix to this
    seeming as it's been happening for at least a year

    Minecraft Locating Server issue

    Hello @Sem de Groot I hope that you are doing well!

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently facing server issues. But don't worry, the following troubleshooting steps will fix the issue.

    Step 1: Clear Mac address:

    Settings > Network Settings > Advanced Settings > Alternate Mac Address > Clear it and the console should restart. It would definitely help if you could restart the internet router while the console is restarting.

    Step 2: Close any running games:

    To remove download constraints from games or apps being installed, you can either wait for the Xbox to suspend the running game, or you can force games to close by doing the following:

    1. On the Home screen, navigate to your most recently run game.
    2. With the game highlighted, press the Menu button and select Quit.
    Step 3: Remove your account:

    First, please select System > Settings > account > remove accounts and then select your account and select Remove to confirm then re-add your account.

    Step 4: Reset your console:

    If you are still encountering the same issue, please select System > Settings > System > Console info > Select Reset console > Choose Reset and keep my games and apps.

    Note =>The "Reset and Keep my Games and Apps" option will not cause losing your games, but please be aware that you need to be completely aware of the email address as well as the password of your account before going for it because it will require you to sign in to the account.

    Step 5: Check your NAT type:

    Another thing you should check is your NAT type. I would like you to check your NAT type if open because that could sometimes interfere. to check for the NAT type you can follow the steps below:

    Settings > Network Settings > NAT type => It should be open.

    If the NAT type is not open, you will need to open some ports with your internet provider. These ports must be open for Xbox Live to work: Port 88 (UDP) Port 3074 (UDP and TCP) Port 53 (UDP and TCP) Port 80 (TCP) Port 500 (UDP) Port 3544 (UDP) Port 4500 (UDP).

    Step 6: Check your internet connection:

    In case the issue still persists, please try connecting to a different network, or perhaps using a hotspot momentarily to just sync your worlds and then connecting to your home network once more.

    Step7: Troubleshoot Multiplayer connection errors:

    If the issue persists, I highly recommend checking the link below for further assistance:

    I wish you a lovely day, and I hope this helps you out!

    Kind Regards

    Stay safe, and happy gaming!
