How to save a game on trial version?

So I got the trial version of natural texture pack and built amazing stuff on it and tried to exit the game it would not let me save. Is there any way I can save without buying it? It took a long time to build.

No, the reason the game doesn't allow you to save the work you've done with the trial version is because it's a 'trial' version. It's there for you to 'try'. The idea is that you'll try it, love it and pay the small fee for the Full Version.

How do you do it without Xbox live? On Minecraft game.

Simply select to 'play offline'. Whenever you go to play the game, you'll see options on screen to connect to Xbox live or to play offline. Continue Playing Offline. Make sure you create a new world, rather than continue a previous world, as it will ask you to log into Xbox live to play online. Once you choose to play 'offline', and create a world, it will initialize and wait to load the new game, and you will be playing Mine craft. There is also the option for playing 'multiplayer offline', as long as all the players are all connected to the same local network at home or wherever you're playing.

Minecraft Texture Packs - Xbox Edition.

Hi, my son is having trouble downloading the trial edition. It brings him to a "billing" page, and when I put in our details, it says, "invalid address - not completed". So I'm wondering if it's trial, do we still need to input address? And if so, how do we get past the incomplete address bit? Many thanks. Stephanie. I have tried: Inputting our home address in many different ways - no luck. I think it was caused by: Unsure.
