I have no idea how to do it. How I tried to do it was I would take a modded minecraft.jar and rename it 1.5.2.jar switch it out with the one in the versions folder and it wouldn't load. does anyone know how to do it.
Are you moving the previous folder on to the desktop if not thats your problem with some mods. For others you just open the .minecraft with the win rar archiver and then delete the meta_inf. The open the mod folder press ctrl+a and drag the files onto the .minecraft folder thats open. With the deleted meta_inf, then close the folders and open minecraft normally.
I tried that it doesn't work at all.
taking the modded minecraft.jar and moving it DOESNT WORK
taking the 1.5.2.jar then modded it. DIDN'T WORK
I think broke the game. (JK) don't know what he did
Has anyone figured out how to do this yet? All the tutorials and things I've found work for 1.6. 1.5.2 mods don't seem to work yet, unless I'm doing something stupid. I've got a mods file in the version, I've got the right folder in my versions folder showing up in the profile...my old saves are launched.
I followed every step in that video (in the more recent one from the same author actually : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=73Zops0kgOM ), and it won't work
When I run the new launcher, I just have the 1.6.1 and the old releases, and no way to choose the .jar I just modified.
Does anyone have had the same problem and solved it ?
