sorry..but why i cannot find ".minecraft" folder???
for some strnge reason none of this advice helped me. i searched my computer and %appdata% showed up, but none of it had anything to do with minecraft. I don't know how or why, but i guess my minecraft.jar folder was misplaced and/or deleted.
Hey guys! If you're one of those people who just can't stand slow computers and plays on a macintosh as a result, then this will help you a lot, for sure.
Here is a guide to get to the minecraft roaming folder:
2:Type in ~/Library (with the tilde) in the spot that opened up.
3:Go to the Application Support folder and open it
4:Find minecraft inside of it and open it
5: Have fun doing what you have been wanting to!
In case anyone was wondering, on a Mac, the process is:
1. Open your home folder. (The folder with your name on it)
2. Open the Library folder inside the home folder. (NOT the Library folder in Macintosh HD, the one in your folder)
3. Open the Application Support folder
4. Open the "minecraft" folder inside Application Support
5. Open the bin folder.
You my good sir, are a lifesaver! I'm using a map trying to get super hostile, and i thank you and your glorious mind.
