From what I understand about binary difference packages, it only keeps the differences between two .jar files, am I right? Saying that noting the differences between two .jar files is illegal would make a lot of this site illegal. The Forum updates about changes in the game(indirectly, the .jar files), so if you consider noting the differences between two different versions of the game in a binary difference file illegal and "redistributing the game" then using deductive logic, you could infer that this whole forum, which also notes the updates in the game, would be technically illegal.

Hey everyone, fyi, he got permission from MOJANG to do this. Also, just calm the hell down all you "oooooh he's redistributing .jars" people, I have experience with Java, and I know that it would be very difficult to do anything with the patch files. Just also wanted to say thanks to Cyborg for making this, one of my favorite things to ever come out of mcforums.net

sing a fresh, unmodified copy of Minecraft.
Press ENTER to continue...
My Minecraft version is 1.0.0.
Whenever i try to patch my minecraft, it just say that my minecraft file cannot be patched, and that i should make sure that im using a fresh, unmodded minecraft, but the wierd part is that no matter if i delete all minecraft files and then redownload, or i update my minecraft, it just repeats, its like i have a mod, that wont go away. I dont know what to do, but i hope that somebody will help me
@TheJackal It's because CyborgDragon hasn't updated MCNostalgia for 1.0.0 yet, we're all in the same boat. Either download a 1.8.1 release and patch that (try Google) or wait for MCNostalgia to be updated.
ok look 4 gods sake this IS NOT FRIKING ILLEGAL. He HAS NOT redistributed ANY of the original base classes, he is just using a porgram to CHANGE THEM. This is no different from, say the Single Player Commands automatic installer. If it was illegal the page would be taken down or locked by now. So everyone just CHILL OUT and get over it.
