Well I'm not a noob to installing mods or even updating minecraft on my system but this one has me stumped!
Yesterday I installed Minecraft RC2 on my system and then patched and added my mods to it.
Well now when I start minecraft up I'm still getting version number 1.8.1 on the loading screen.
Normally the version number changes when you do a major update like that and for the life of me I can't figure out what I did wrong..
Here's what I did.
1 downloaded RC2 to my system.
2 opened the app data/roaming/.minecraft/bin folder
3 deleted minecraft.jar file
4 copied the minecraft rc2 jar file into the bin folder
5 closed windows explorer
6 started mcpatcher and patched the jar file then added my mods
7 started minecraft as normal.
As I stated above, I'm able to play minecraft but none of the new features are showing up and the version number hasn't changed.
