Quote fromOk. Im on a Mac. Java is up to date.
I do everything the instructions say, and everytime I hit patch the patcher stops responding so it does nothing.
It's starting to become a pain. Any help is appreciated.
Can't help unless I see the contents of the log window.
Quote fromOkay, I have had a little success with installing this mod, but it has been very frustrating. I have a mac (hate all you want I don't have a choice) and I get an infinite black screen after I install the mod.
There is a person who explained how to fix this very well on page 15 (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=55700&start=420) not sure link will lead you there though.
If anyone knows how to fix the sounds or knows how to fix the infinite black screen without having it run off of a command line (like the guy in pg 15 showed) the could you please explain how.
That post you mentioned links to another post explaining this, viewtopic.php?f=25&t=55700&p=1183636#p1183636
Hurrah for broken Mac Java.
Quote fromcan any one help? I just installed the better light mod and it works in SSP but in SMP on all servers the grass is turned to blue tint lint in the winter biomes no mater what biome I'm actually in.
I don't know why this would be happening - all BetterGrass does is copy the tint from the top of the block to the sides, it doesn't actually change it... very odd. Anyone else seen this?
Quote fromQuote fromQuote fromSadly, so far I've been very unimpressed by the MrMMods install. It's been a hassle on two computers now. My first running 32-bit Vista, and now this desktop which is running 64-bit Windows 7. The patcher stops doing anything at about 6-7%, and yes I've done the "thorough" uninstall you've listed. Overall, a disappointment unless this is addressed.
Chances are if its doing the same thing on 2 seperate machines then its USER error.
First all of, this isn't the same issue that I was getting on my laptop. Second of all, how is it hard to put a jar file in my /.minecraft/ folder and double click it, then select the backup MC jar as the original, and the minecraft.jar as the overwrite destination? It isn't. Not much room for user error for anyone who isn't retarded.
Oh, you'd be surprised.
What does the log window say up until the point it stops working? Also, when you say "select the backup MC jar as the original" be careful - if you're patching a clean Minecraft.jar (which you should be), you should select the minecraft.jar as the original. The patcher creates a backup at that point and will change the "original" box to point to the backup itself. In fact, it should do that automatically when it starts up anyway. Its possible this is what you meant but I wanted to check that you're not manually selecting the backup as the original, cos that's wrong.
I'm currently rewriting the patcher to make it a bit less confusing.
Quote fromThis is by far my favourite mod. One question, given minecraft's voxelized enviroment, couldn't a highly optmized global illumination algorythm be implemented? I recon it is quite more than simply smothing the lightmesh, but such a thing could lead to interesting results.
The thing is, there are no light sources in Minecraft, just blocks (solid, or air) with a white light value between 1 and 15, and that's it. So you can't do GI in the traditional sense. Maybe when the source is opened up it will make it easier for someone to rip out the entire renderer and make something, but in the mean time you can work with what you've got to do something that looks a bit prettier than the default.
Quote fromQuote fromHey I just installed the betterlight smchat and the minimap, I'm running windows vista.
Wondering how to counter this problem:
Looks like opengl smoothing isn't supported by your graphics card, try updating your drivers.
That could be, though I doubt it. That's basic, basic stuff that should be in ANY graphics driver. More likely that one of the class files (I'm thinking bm.class) didn't patch, or was overwritten by another mod installed after. But without seeing the log from the patcher, all I can suggest is reinstall and start again from a clean minecraft.jar. (See the OP)
Quote fromI'm Using Mac OS X 10.5.8 and when I point the input to minecraft.app it gives the error error opening zip file. Any help?
Why are you pointing the input to minecraft.app? The instructions clearly say to point it to minecraft.jar, in the bin subfolder of the minecraft folder, which I'm guessing is not where minecraft.app lives either. Please reread the instructions.
i've been using this mod for quite a while and i love it! A big thanks for this!
I know it's a matter of taste but i really can't understand why people are demanding blur or dof. Why using texture packs and then diminish the quality with filters. Each to their own, i guess :smile.gif:
Yeah :smile.gif: I actually really like that style, FWIW - simple geometry and textures but with effects over the top. Its one of those things though I think when you start changing one thing, more things scream out for changing too. Like right now, texture mipping REALLY needs to get done and I'm looking at that.
