I just want to say thank you for all your hard work on this. When i first looked into buying MC i was hesitant because personally i think the graphics are horrible. Default TP was just unbearable (IMO), so i held off buying MC until i found you and your lovely TP. Without this TP i would have never bought the amazing game of Minecraft. Thank you and keep up the Great work!!
Should try reading previous posts, he stated that it would be this past weekend/mid this week as an estimate, but anything can happen or go wrong, but I would personally say it's a good bet it'll be released before the end of the week. We'll have to see.
This new update has made texture creating such a pain. On the other hand, it's quite an elegant approach to them as well so I may just not be used to the locations of the textures which is making me go crazy, haha.
Anyway, I'll get some screenshots up in a few hours to see how you guys like the new textures.
The new MCPATCHER (mcpatcher-3.0.3) converts texture packs way better than unstitcher, all the textures are converted (CTM and animated textures too). I use Optifine to run HD packs, you don't need to patch minecraft executable, just run mcpatcher and you will see a new option "Convert texture pack" :-)
I used both during that long period of anger just to see if it that was the case, but thanks for the heads up. I'm using the HD patcher's converted files at the moment. =)
