Thanks, Soc

(jerk)

Edit:

To see AppData you may have to turn on the option to view hidden files, which is located in Tools/Folder Options. Though most people who play Minecraft probably already know that.

This is best for the long run but you could also type in manually the backslash and then then AppData at the top of windows explorer.

This was a really great tut and helpful to many people. Personally I am just going to wait till this whole plight of beta is over and it is fully working.

In the mac the folder is located in your library directory

I know this only because I have installed minecraft over at my church on a student mac. of course I have buried the file folder so none can access it who doesn't know exactly where to look....and then I made my pw a very long one :lol: :geek:

[edit] on a side note, you will have to remove the "." (period) before the word "minecraft" on the folder, for the mac to be able to see the downloaded folder.

Wait, what? There's an update out? Nothing on Notch's blog...?

Hmm, now the client keeps updating. I replace it with your zipped version and it just updates to beta on launch. :/

Marine figured it out. You need to use the new version of the 'version' file, located in the bin folder. So after Minecraft updates to Beta, cut the new 'version' file, copy/paste the .minecraft folder Soc provided, then replace the old version file with the new one. That way, Minecraft thinks it doesn't need to update.
