[1.5.1] AntiSteve 1.0   (a.k.a. UseOldSkinServer 1.0)
Posted Image
There have been a few problems with the skin servers since the release of Minecraft 1.3.1, at least partly because Mojang changed the skin server frontend (as far as I can tell). This is a little patch that forces Minecraft to use the old Amazon skin server URL rather than the new Minecraft one, bypassing the new frontend.

That's all this does, it doesn't also try and get the skin multiple times or anything else like that, it just forces a different URL to be used for the request. This seems to significantly improve the reliability of loading skins. I know Tobias Mollstam is working hard on this problem but it has been going on long enough that some people might want a workaround until he fixes it. For updates on his progress, you can follow his Twitter here:

Download

To install it just extract the zip file and put the provided new auy.class in your minecraft.jar, overwriting the existing one. You'll also need to delete the META-INF folder from the jar if you're on a PC (or all the files inside META-INF starting with the word "MOJANG" if you're on a Mac) as usual.

Read this spoiler if you need this mod for Minecraft 1.3.1:

I won't keep maintaining this if it looks like Mojang have fixed their new skin server, and this will break if Mojang ever disable their old skin server. Backup your minecraft.jar first. Caveat emptor, your mileage may vary, if you install this you accept full responsibility for breaking your Minecraft, etc, etc.

Excellent, it seems to be working for me too, I've been switching between using this and not using it all day while testing other stuff. My skins always seem to get loaded when I use this, when moments before (and not using this) they didn't work.
