To check for updates use /trigger menu and hit the Check for Updates button. There is also a Reset and an Uninstall button.


Data packs are usually pretty compatible with newer versions of the game. This data pack however also features a version checker which notifies you, if you are playing with an (to the data pack) unknown version. If the data pack works fine and I'm just too lazy to update it in time, you can turn it off with the command /scoreboard players set tvc_ignore global 1
