If you have any problems at all with it, please contact us on the IRC or on our forums, this way we can fix as many bugs as possible before the full release.
The current beta has drag-and-drop mod installation, so you should be able to just download any mod, and drop the zip in the mods folder. The next time you run the beta, it should load automatically.
MyCraft is a mod manager with some very useful features. Up until now, Minecraft modding has been a bit of a repetitive process. The modder must constantly update their mods, and the users must re-download the mods each time. This mod manager solves these problems.
If you would like to develop for MyCraft, you can download the example mod here: http://www.frustra.o...les/TestMod.zip
This mod includes the Blood Pickaxe (breaks blocks instantly), blue torches (retextured) and some simple recipes.
- No install or jar modification!
- Organized and easy mod installation
- Auto-updating client, no updating needed!
- Automatic hooking, no need to find which class is which!
- Refactored API, no more classes like aq, ie, and eu!
- No mod conflicts! (For MyCraft specific mods only)
- Custom mod menu for turning mods on and off!
- Built-in mods for turning off particle effects for slow computers.
- Built-in flying mod!
- Built-in proxy option for playing at school or work! (Note, basically what this does is redirect all requests that were supposed to go to minecraft.net to our server, it does NOT proxy the connection to any game servers that you want to play on, so there's no extra lag)
Turn On/Off: V
Move around: Same as walking controls
2D Mode: Can only fly up or down with Jump or Sneak
3D Mode: Can fly up or down by looking up or down

Making a basic mod: Go to post
Download and Instructions:
MyCraft is very easy to get working.
You can download everything you need here as well as read our development blog and see screenshots:
Once you've downloaded it, run MyCraft.exe by double clicking on it (or run MyCraft.jar for linux/mac).
MyCraft auto updates, so you will always have the latest version!
(Updated every half hour, 4 days shown)
In order to get to the mods menu to turn on the proxy, you need to be able to log in.
The problem with this, is you may not be able to do this without the proxy =)
To turn on the proxy outside of the game, go to .minecraft/bin/mycraft/ and open settings.txt
In there you will find the proxify setting. You can turn the ON of OFF yourself.
What the proxy does is send your information, that would normally go to minecraft.net, to our server. Our server then sends it to minecraft.net, and responds with the authentication. We do not monitor the information that goes through our proxy. If you do not trust us or our service, you have the option of not using the proxy (it is off by default), By doing so you will be connected directly to minecraft.net when you play.
We have purchased Minecraft ourselves, so we have no need for extra accounts, and will never look at/distribute the information going through our proxy.
Problem: When I try and run MyCraft.jar, nothing happens!
Solution: For windows, try running MyCraft.exe first, otherwise try right clicking on the jar and doing Open With -> Java, if this doesn't work you can try running with console.
To run with console, the easiest way is to download this (Windows only):
Place it in the same folder as MyCraft.jar
Run it by double clicking on it.
If it works, then you can download this one:
It will run MyCraft without the black window.
If it doesn't work, paste what it says in the black window here.
(Right click and do Mark to select, and hit enter to copy)
Problem: I want to change my launching options / ram usage!
Solution: If you are using MyCraft Launcher 5.0+ then all you have to do is edit the Launch Options.txt file and MyCraft will automatically load with these options.
Problem: My HD texture packs make the game freeze!
Solution: Not all HD texture fixes work with MyCraft, you may want to try this one:
Problem: I get bad video drivers when I try to run MyCraft!
Solution: First, make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card.
If you still get this error after updating, make sure you have MyCraft Launcher 3.1 or above.
Just rename MyCraft.jar to MyCraft-c.jar and it will run in compatibility mode!
Make sure you are running the jar, not the exe for this.
Problem: My game freezes when I start singleplayer or login!
Solution: Make sure all your mods are up to date. If you still get the freeze with NO mods installed, you can
post your log file here, or talk to us on the IRC. You may also try re-downloading your minecraft.jar by removing your version file in .minecraft
Problem: I want to disable one of my mods, but I am too lazy to move it out of the folder!
Solution: You're in luck! All you need to do is rename the folder for that mod so there is a # in front of it and it will be ignored by MyCraft when loading mods.
Problem: I have two mods that conflict with each other and they say to install one after the other, what do I do?
Solution: If a mod says to install one after the other, install them to the same folder in MyCraft in the order
specified and it will work.
