Minecraft 1.6 is here. But I guess that some of you still want to stay for a while with version 1.5, for example because of the server where you play. So I've created this simple tool. :smile.gif:
Main window of Minecraft Versions
It is very easy to use:
To remove unused versions, simply click 'Open versions folder' and delete versions you don't need.
How it works?
When you run Minecraft Versions first time, the program detects your current version of Minecraft and makes buckup of main .jar files in folder .minecraft/versions. After update, when you run this tool again, it'll do the same but now you'll be able to return to the previous version. There will be two folders for different versions in .minecraft/versions folder.
Minecraft Versions doesn't include any original Minecraft files, but if you have files of an older version of Minecraft somewhere, you can use them. Just copy them to a new folder in .minecraft/versions. The program will see them immediately. Four files are required:
If you only have minecraft.jar file, you can copy other files from other versions, because they rarely change.
I got a problem, that I got from the first version.
It crashes immediately after I run this hope to be awesome program.
Here is what I get.

If I may. You should somehow figure out to incorporate this tool with the game. For example. First you run your program, choose version and it then connects with the game. I understand that you wont be able to incoporate it as a option in the menu section, because the minecraft.jar is already running. 100% Much better than the MC Downgrader.
