What is World Converting In Minecraft?

World converting in Minecraft can be done easily and is done for the purpose of using the same Minecraft map or world on a different version. This guide is specifically for converting a java world to bedrock but using this method you can also convert from bedrock to java and also from xbox360 to bedrock or java.

How to Convert From Bedrock to Java

How this you will need both a Java and Bedrock account. How ever, if you are downloading a Java map to convert to bedrock but you dont have a Java account. You can simply use the same process but choose “select from other directories” and click on the unzipped world folder instead.

  1. Download Je2be from the Microsoft Store.

  2. Once downloaded open the app and choose the right conversion method you need (eg bedrock to java or java to bedrock).

  5. Once complete, you will need to choose where to save the file. Here are the three options.
    – Save into Minecraft world save folder. (This will save directly in your Bedrock Minecraft single player worlds list)
    – Save into custom folder. (This will be saved as a folder to a file ready for you to send or upload somewhere)
    – Save as mcworld file. (This will be saved a Minecraft playable file. Double click on it to launch Minecraft with he world)

  6. I prefer to use the “export as mcworld file” and then double clicking on the file to automatically upload the world and launch Minecraft.
