    posted a message on I need skintest2.jar. site down.

    I know this is a very old thread, but its still relevant, and I managed to get the file to get the program working.

    I got the file from the wayback machine website, but I created a link to the file on google drive: skinedit2.jar

    If you don't trust this file you can get it from the wayback machine website yourself.

    Basic logic cicuits can be made in real life using a transistor. A transistor works like this:

    2 inputs and 1 output.
    If input B is on, then input A can pass through.
    If input B is off, A is blocked.

    Using this, you can make an inverter as follows:

    Input A is hooked up to - power.
    Input B is the main input.
    Output (of transistor) is hooked up to + power through a resistor, then that is passed through another resistor. (The resistors are completely necessary! Without them you'll short-circuit yourself)

    The reason this works is that in real life, there are 3 states, not 2. These are -, 0, and +. - and 0 are both "off", while + is "on". + overwrites 0, (Just like in Minecraft!), but - overwrites +. So when B is on, - power goes through and overwrites the + output. But when B is off (or -!), A does not pass through, and the output defaults back to +.

    This works 100%, I've used it to make RS NORs and even adder/subtractors. But be warned, this is all very expensive. You'll need to buy a breadboard (~20$), Jumper wires (~8$), many transitors (~5$ for a pack of 30, which is pretty cheap), and even more resistors (~3$ for just 5. Very expensive).

    Have fun!

    PS:

    Electricity only travels ~95% of the speed of light on a regular copper wire.

    My electronics hobby store sells 20 resistors for 75c. $3 for 5 is just overpriced. Generally you can get components quite cheap anyways.

    You should probably try and find some other tutorials online about electronics. If you want to model command blocks in real life, learn Arduino or the raspberry pi. Try and get a light blinking with a button and on a timer using resistors and/or with Arduino or raspberry pi (or you will break the led or fry the microcontroller).
