Hi NotTarts I tried your portable today, when I click the minecraft.exe shows login window and upon entering user/pass it downloads the files and plays well. Thx for the convenience.
I am worried for one fact that it creates 2 folders one being .minecraft with which I have no issues
It also creates folders Dropbox\shellext\l and randomly generates some extensionless files each run.
Can you please tell that this is safe and no probs I am thinking that my username and password is encrypted in them LoL O_O just kidding, but please tell what's with this whole Dropbox folder thing. Thx.
I've done some searching, and it looks like Dropbox creates that folder to store caches. Not sure if you have Dropbox or not, but I'm guessing that Dropbox changed something in the instant that you ran the program, so the data it changed was stored in the same place as the Minecraft data, instead of the usual AppData folders. It should be safe to delete :smile.gif:

It works great, but can anyone get it to work reliably -without- removing it from their thumb-drive? im thinking its my thumb-drive or some issue its having but it will start, and as soon as the world loads its locks up for a few seconds every few seconds lol, yes its in a USB 2.0 slot
If you want to make the game portable download java portable and java portable launcher install both to your USB pen and create a shortcut to the launcher in the main USB directory, then start it and select all files and oil minecraft done and enjoy.
Sorry about the broken links. It should be fixed now.
Also, you can now allow other applications to access the Minecraft portable saves by dragging-and-dropping the application onto 'minecraft.exe'. It looks like this only works with certain applications, though (AlphaVescuppi, c10t, mcmap, Cartographer, eg, all work), so you'll need to experiment a bit.
Uhhh... You just gave out the launcher for minecraft. This is exactly the reason why Notch doesn't want people to mess with the code, because then thousands get the game he worked so hard on for free. If you want the Halloween update, well, im gonna let you think about it.
