Hello. I just downloaded the new launcher for minecraft 1.6.1 and when I wanted to download some mods I noticed that my Bin folder was gone. I tried deleting my .minecraft folder and starting minecraft up again, I deleted minecraft and downloaded again. nothing seemed to help. do you guys have any sollutions for this ?
I ran into this problem as well. I had to delete the minecraft folder in order to do a forced restart (since the new launcher does not have an options menu) and when I reinstalled MC, there was no longer a bin folder. If a mod just needs to be installed in the 1.6.1.jar, then you would just need to go to the versions folder as ShutEye said. I am new to the game, so I do not understand where mods need to be installed too.
Edit: I found out what to do. This YT video explains it all
PenguinNewked oh and the link is no longer working for the video well this is also having this problem on 1.8 also when will these moders will learn not to make mods that use the bin folder sins 1.6.1 has not had the bin folder and now it is 1.8 and still dont have the damn bin folder and a lot of the mod installers still use the mincraft.jar to install and not the 1.6.1.jar - 1.8.jar to install the mods ive ran in to that a lot and it is making me mad
