    How to Downgrade your Minecraft

    1.6 Compatible! Very Happy


    Alright fellow forum goers, here's the deal. You want to know how to downgrade your Minecraft A.S.A.P. so you can do whatever the hell you want to do. That's fine, awesome. All I ask is that those of you who need help, read the guide. Also, those who can provide feedback with other operating systems are encouraged to do so. The more knowledge in this topic, the better it can be.



    Windows 7

    Step 1: Download a previous version of minecraft.jar the server rolled back to. Make sure to SAVE the file in a location you can remember!
    Here are the previous versions.

    • Version 1.4_01
    • Version 1.5_01
    • Version 1.6_6




    Here's an example in google chrome
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    When you save the .jar file, make sure to remember where you save it to.



    Step 2: Replace the .jar file in the directory with the one you just downloaded.
    Simply drag the minecraft.jar file, and put it into the bin folder where minecraft is installed. Select the option "Move and Replace".

    Step 3: Profit. You can now run Minecraft in the earlier version! Pat yourself on the back!

    I tried, but imageshack isn't working that way anymore. Thumbnails all around, I guess.

    A good guide. Very helpful. Also I hope you will keep up to date so when minecraft goes to 1.6 you will post 1.5. However you should also include how to then re-upgrade if they don't have the new launcher, which is easier.

    Could be -.-? But not in this thread. I'm fine he posted that... Sheesh like I'm attacking Aap or something :S? Just saying that he posted something I already posted IN THIS THREAD so the dude who asked the question knows that.

    That was my whole point... the guy knows it now >.>. I just say he said something that wasn't needed. Also what does the thread starter care that Aap come up with it earlier -.-. Man....

    I can start a whole fight here but I also "discovered" the link "on my own". Dozends have. I found it myself. Aap found it himself. Maybe Henk in Amsterdam also found it himself.

    What you just said sounded like (for me): "Stodgy, seriously shutup Aap found it way earlier so ssssshhh don't take credit that isn't yours!"

    I mean can't people be nice now :S? Example: Yeah StodgY that's a nice link. I remember Aap posting it some time ago though =D.

    I react: Oh ok, didn't know Razz. But the thread starter got the point now though Very Happy!

    Where is this directory?

    I've downloaded the 1.5 jar now where do i put that in, because Minecraft is just an .exe there is no containing folder with a bin folder

    edit: Open up My Computer
    In the address bar type %appdata% then navigate to .minecraft
    Delete bin folder
    Download: This
    Drag this bin folder into your .minecraft folder

    found it sorry Very Happy

    My minecraft launcher does not give me the option to not update. Help?

    Edit 1: I finally got the new launcher, and I downloaded the 1.5_01 file, and I replaced the updated .jar file with it. The launcher opens, gives me news. Then I log in. However, I cannot get past this screen:

    I don't understand why it is so hard for people.

    The only thing you need to do is paste the 1.5 jar into the bin folder. That is the only thing you need to do. One step, using 1st grade computer skills.

    That's exactly what I did, patrick. And I'm stuck on that screen.

    Edit: Found out that the problem was Internet Explorer. seems to be corrupting files I download. Downloaded firefox and now everything's fine

    Wasn't really directed at you, it was more of a blanket statement. Wink

    Also, use google chrome, ie fails.
