Tired of finding a .zip file of the old Minecraft resources? I've got you covered. This mod will download the majority of the missing resources from Mojang themselves, with a few exceptions being hosted on my Dropbox.
Don't try to install the mod on any other version besides the ones they are compatible. ModLoader's methods aren't the same on every single version.
Please note that it will take 3-5 minutes to download the resources. I am working on ways to speed this up. Once the resources are downloaded, this mod will not delay startup times.
Here's a CurseForge widget in case you're skeptical about the hyperlinks I posted above.
How to install
This Mod requires Risugami's ModLoader. It fully compatible with Forge or whatever else you want to install. It does nothing to the game itself.
For Minecraft b1.5_01 - 1.5.2, simply put the .jar file in the mods folder.
For Minecraft b1.2_02 - b1.4_01, you need to extract the file and add it to your client.jar/minecraft.jar/whatever it is that your launcher uses. If you use MultiMC, there should be a button called "add to Minecraft.jar."
Help! I can't find ModLoader because it's so OLD!!!
