This probably seems like a dumb question, but any advice is appreciated. I bought the PC beta in 2011, and haven't really touched it since then. However, after seeing all the cool path tracing shader stuff, I wanted to dive back in.
However, I don't really know which version the community is behind - the windows store has all kinds of different editions, but for many years the mod/shader/texture pack support was obviously all behind the Java version. I can't get back into my Mojang account, or I would just do the Java version without thinking too hard.
