    A running joke.
    Remember big foot sightnings in grand theft auto 4? Similar scenario. People reported seeing another character (herobrine) in the game, and people added it later with mods on pc.
    It dosn't exist. Much like Mojang referenced it on the pc version, 4J are doing it for xbox. In one of the loading screens, it sayd "We're not sure if 4J studios removed herobrine from the xbox 360 version, but we think they did".

    And from what I've read on other forums, you won't have to start a new world to get access to pistons, are they don't spawn, unlike things like melons. The only thing you might miss out on in your old worlds is the new textures for cobblestone and brick.

    - Fixed a problem causing some save games not to load.
    That should have been on first update.
    I wonder if my corrupted saves will work after update

    Ya surely can. I'll have it ready tomorrow. The tree house is taking a lot longer than I thought, and it feels like my mind is being raped at times, what with working with nothing other than wood and leaves. I get a complete mental block (see what I did there?) Nearly done though - I'll finish it tomorrow during the day, and then have fun with pistons!
    I'll be finishing my modified space station house tonight

    And I havn't forgotton about you Davy! If ya need still need help with Cloud tomorrow or the weekend, let me know.
