    posted a message on Java Launcher Mod - Keep using the Java launcher!

    EDIT: Since the Forum is being archived, I'd like to point out that I finally did something with this. Here is the GitHub page for it: https://github.com/Lesking72/mcupdate


    I decided instead of trying to use tumblr to just modify the HTML myself, and host it with GitHub pages. I'm probably the only person that uses it, but I wanted to update this post in case someone finds it in the future.


    --- OLD POST BELOW ---


    I felt this belongs in the tools category because it's a launcher mod. If it belongs somewhere else, move it.


    Some people, including me, don't enjoy the native launcher. So, I made a few modifications to it to the old one since Mojang is no longer supporting it.


    1. Removed the update nag from the top panel

    2. Changed the blog page to mcupdate72.tumblr.com (Note: I don't have time to do much of anything right now, so it's going to show the default launcher page. When the new blog is finished, it will automatically display the new blog.) EDIT: https://lesking72.github.io/mcupdate


    To install:


    EDIT: Removed as these instructions were outdated, visit the GitHub repository for proper instructions.


    Once you have installed this modification, you must open launcher.jar directly! If you use the bootstrap (executable downloaded from minecraft.net) it will replace this with the standard launcher. I don't know if this will cause problems when game updates are released, but if they are, I'll try to poke a stick at the bootstrap to make it not replace launcher.jar


    Modified files:


    EDIT: Removed, visit the GitHub repository to find the source.


    Screenshots are attached (EDIT: the screenshots shown are outdated and don't reflect the new website. Visit https://lesking72.github.io/mcupdate to see the current site)


    Please note that the blog is not finished, as a result of the theme the original blog uses no longer being available, I'm having to cannibalize a new theme to make it look similar. So the theme does exist. It's called MMMMinimal, but in the HTML code, it's called Photo Minimal, but searches for Photo Minimal (and the website link provided) came up mostly dry. It's still going to take a bit because Mojang made some changes to the theme that I have to replicate. EDIT: I don't have time to do much of anything right now, so it's going to show the default launcher page. When the new blog is finished, it will automatically display the new blog. EDIT: New site is complete. If you did install the old mod, my old tumblr page automatically redirects to the new site, at least until my tumblr page is taken down.


    Download EDIT: Visit the GitHub repository to download the mod

    posted a message on Launcher freezes at starting launcher with no error message

    The launcher does this randomly too, sometimes I can make it start the launcher sometimes it won't.


    This is the terminal log that has been open for well over 10 minutes:

    [email protected]:~/Desktop$ java -jar Minecraft.jar
    Bootstrap (v5)
    Current time is Dec 28, 2015 10:26:31 AM
    System.getProperty('os.name') == 'Linux'
    System.getProperty('os.version') == '4.2.0-19-generic'
    System.getProperty('os.arch') == 'amd64'
    System.getProperty('java.version') == '1.8.0_66-internal'
    System.getProperty('java.vendor') == 'Oracle Corporation'
    System.getProperty('sun.arch.data.model') == '64'
    Looking for update
    Downloading: https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/launcher/launcher.pack.lzma
    Got reply in: 531ms
    No update found.
    Reversing LZMA on /home/les/.minecraft/launcher.pack.lzma to /home/les/.minecraft/launcher.pack
    Unpacking /home/les/.minecraft/launcher.pack to /home/les/.minecraft/launcher.jar
    Cleaning up /home/les/.minecraft/launcher.pack
    Starting launcher.

    When I force the terminal to close the launcher window stays open and will not close with the window buttons.
    Specs:
    Ubuntu 15.10 running kernel 4.2.0-19
    OpenJDK 1.8.0_66
    64 bit java
    Video driver X.org X server - AMD/ATI display driver wrapper from xserver-xorg-video-ati (open source)

    Starting the launcher directly from .minecraft won't work either.
    Also let me know if I should have used a spoiler instead of blockquote

    posted a message on Minecraft 4K (Improved by CrunchyCat) DOWNLOAD NOW AVAILABLE
    I found out how to run this (in a browser).

    1. Open the jar file with WinRAR or 7-Zip and extract M.class

    2. Paste the following into any text editor

    <html>
    <head><title>Minecraft 4k</title></head>
    <body>
    <center>

    Minecraft 4k

    <applet code="M" archive="M.class" width="956" height="580"></center> </body>
    </html>


    3. Save that document as an HTML file (.html) in the directory you extracted M.class to and open the html file.

    posted a message on Simple Flatmap Script
    It gave me this error:


    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "flatworld.py", line 2, in <module>
    import mcpi.minecraft as minecraft
    ImportError: No module named mcpi.minecraft


    EDIT:
    I changed mcpi.minecraft to minecraft.minecraft and the same in the other one and it worked.

    Pretty cool code though!

    actually it was a failed pig model, which is what some people form their theories about Minecraft upon.


    It wasn't until after that post that I found out what the bug was but i'm guessing at the time it happened it had the pig texture but it was tall and didn't explode

    Quote from dooddreo2

    On SPC 1.5.2, none of the WorldEdit commands seem to work. I can't use the wooden axe to set positions, and when I make brushes, it seems to work fine but it doesn't actually change/edit blocks. I tried both manual and automated installation, and I don't know how to fix the problem.


    try using //pos1 for position 1 and //pos2 for position 2

    posted a message on Zepplin Mod 1.5.1
    Quote from Nanosaxon

    I don't know what happened to it. Ever since I got minecraft I have wanted mods. This was the one mod I always wanted. After teaching myself to mod and having used 100's of mods I never got to use the zeppelin mod. Every time I make something I end up making ships, planes, or spaceships that need the mod. If anyone updates it I will be very grateful. Do it for a kid who has always dreamed of having that mod.


    You can search minecraft 1.2.5 jar and use the installer

    Can someone please which exact file i have to copy into the minecraft bin


    Copy WorldEdit.jar to the bin folder, Or better, Use the installer!

    ( If a mod screws up re install it, it usually only happens to me if i have forge installed.)

    I need the Ice Plains biome put into WorldEdit because I clanged a biome and can't change it back.

    (Ice Plains is a biome press F3 in a snow biome that has oak trees.)

    posted a message on Booting From USB
    Hi, I have a hard drive from a computer running XP and am trying to boot it with a laptop in a hard drive case.
    I booted into it and it showed a little loading bar and it rebooted into windows 7. Any info about this?
