When ever i try to install a mod to minecraft 1.1 it doesnt work, the game will freeze when i launch it, it freezes. I CANNOT delete the meta.inf folder because there is not one folder in the minecraft.jar, there it is all just file classes, i tried deleting the bin folder, it still comes back without the folders in the jar i even deleted the .minecraft folder and it still isn't working. i don't know what to do and i cant seem to find any answers to why there are no folders in my minecraft.jar.
You could try doing a "Force update"? That could solve the problem, or if you're playing in the browser, try downloading Minecraft and playing that way. Or if you already have it downloaded, delete it and reinstall it. Make sure to back up your worlds though! Good luck!
Mine won't work either. I've tried force updating, and searched sites all over. Anyone have a solution?
Just figured it out! To see the folders again, go to : minecraft.jar>openwith winrar>options>foldertree>show archive folders.
I can do mods again!
YES OMG YOU HELPED ME SO MUCH! I had this problem sinds 1.0 and I needed to find the Meta-inf files myself!!!!!!!! Thanks it works now perfectly !!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D I fixed all my problems with minecraft :3
I've faced the same problems, after seraching in many sites, I didn't find anything, so i mad my way, and it's simple, 1- open your minecraft.jar with the winrar,2- press Ctrl+H,3- the folders will appear now, I made this on a Windows 7 professional.
