Well you can, using something like magic launcher and select the optifine version, but I really hope they do add a .zip file like normal
Yes I do too. But if your trying to use 2 or more mods at once, it's the same thing, just this time the jar and JSON file is already in your versions folder instead of having to make a new 1.6.4 folder and drag all the optifine class files in. the reason I said that to you is cuz I thought u were wondering... Lol
May i just state that most of you are all impatient and need to cool it down just a little bit because next update they are going to have to do some overhaul on their mods so just wait for your favorite mods to be updated instead of asking for them to be able to be updated and as for all of the people here trying to actually help and/or telling the impatient ones to be patient thank you.
I have NO IDEA if this is 100% true, but from all the rumors i've heard, I have come to the coclusion that Modloader is Iether not updating ever again or just waiting for 1.7. Even with that though, because of forges Installer, all the mods i used to use with modloader i can use or use a better version (Zans instead of reis) and it ended up fine, and i seem to get less lag. thats just me though, so im sorry if it dosent help you. Anyways, hope you have some luck
