I've played Minecraft in the past, but I never played survival. I just started yesterday, so yeah.
Anyways, so I was trying to download this texture pack from a youtuber and follow his steps (I've been watching how to survive). So, I download it, open it and move it into the minecraft folder from Roaming. I then go into the minecraft game --> Texture Packs. Ok, it's gray.. I search on the internet and it says I have to unzip? So, I did and it didn't appear.. Then, I went and search why and it said it wasn't zipped properly? So, I'm lost and I need help ASAP..
The pack is likly out of date. As of Minecraft 1.5 the format for texture packs has changed and any that are not updated can't be selected.
If the pack is up to date all you have to do is download the zip and place that zip into your texturepack folder then select it in game.
You're not doing anything wrong, its just the packs not updated it sounds.
Go browse the forums here and find a pack you like (hint at sig) and try them out.
That makes sense, because the episode was actually made quite a long time ago (for the Minecraft 1.1). And, there were different types of folders, compared to the ones that are being downloaded today. I downloaded a recent one, but it still is black.. Are you sure I'm not doing anything wrong..?
