hello all

I'm trying to import all of the drop box games from the walk through to my IPhone. I have a windows 10 PC and go to iTunes/file share to drag and drop the unzip files to account.

They are not showing up in my worlds. Any tips?

I have macOS Sierra. I may be boned until the Better Together update.

You can't just drag and drop the world folders into the app.

He's a bit over the top but he explains what to do easy enough.

He doesn't explain where to put the files. I put them in the same place where the world was downloaded to. However it never shows up in my worlds.

He absolutely does. games ----> com.mojang -----> minecraftWorlds (put them in here).

You then move the games folder back into the minecraft app via iTunes.

Best pay more attention next time lest you look like a fool.

Don't be a snide prick. I've done everything he's said to do and it still does not work.

An easier way to get almost all of the achievements is to go to mcpedl.com on your phone. Just search "achievement" in worlds and download it. You can then open it up directly in MCPE.

Well you're doing it wrong then, I've done it on both my Mac and Windows PC exactly as he has said, to great success.

Thanks! Worked well. Only problem is that the only map I found that was strictly an achievement world I couldn't earn some of them.

Also didn't really have a way to re-spawn the Ender Dragon. Oh well lol.

Thank you! This worked for me too when the other method wasn't.

Found that a handful of my downloads were in extra folders so they weren't reading correctly whenever I tried to export them to my device.

So it was like: MCPE_The Haggler > MCPE_The Haggler > (nuts and bolts files).

Moved the contents out of the root directory and it seemed to export without any issues.

So just this MCPE_The Haggler > (nuts and bolts files).

Hope this helps anyone who has similar problems.

You're not an idiot. The "Add" feature has apparently changed in iTunes since the video was created and you are only able to select a file, not a whole folder, to add back. At least this was the case on my Windows 10 machine. Your tip of dragging and dropping the games folder back into iTunes did the trick for me. And thanks to ChinDocta for the original video.

Another way is to download chrome browser for iPhone. Find the world you want. Download it then select copy to Minecraft. Your game will load up and the world will be imported. Easiest way I’ve found so far
