The account I'm trying to run the installer on doesn't have Admin capabilitites, so I entered the password. Then it tried to install it in the admin account, which has no .minecraft, so I can't play it.
I spent about 2 hours trying to get this to work did everything right and it still didn't work and it had deleted all of my saves even when I backed them up to another folder? I give up on downloading this it sounds like a lot of fun but I guess I'll be missing out.
It keeps crashing when i enter i enter for a few seconds then suddenly everything stops :/
Mine too, it gets stuck on the mojang screen then crashes, I tested minecraft and it was B1.8.1 but for some reason when i use the adventure map installer and then I try play the game my minecraft crashes! can you please add a manual installation for the game? I prefer those more.
How to Manually Install Deep Space Turtle Chase! Client
Why manually install?
If for some reason the packaged installers don't work, such as in my case. While the installers are make life easy, all they do is copy files around.
For manually installing Deep Space Turtle Chase! client, you'll be copying files between two directories:
the installed Minecraft directory-- this will be prefixed by "/minecraft" in the following instructions
the Deep Space Turtle Chase! mod directory-- this will be prefixed by "/DSTC" in the following instructions
At the time of this writing, Minecraft version 1.4.7 is current. The following instructions assumes you're using a fresh 1.4.7 installation to begin with.
Follow official DSTC installation instructions (view here) steps 1 through 5.
See my above post to get MCNostalgia to work with Minecraft 1.4.7.
In your respective "/minecraft/bin" directory, rename "minecraft.jar" to "minecraft.zip".
JAR files are literally ZIP archives with a different extension; easy, eh?
Unzip "minecraft.zip" contents to directory named "/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar/"-- yes, the directory name will be the same as the original file.
The directory name must be the same name as the original file. What this will do is tell application to use the files from a directory, instead of compressed inside of a single JAR (really a ZIP archive) file.
