I am a mom to 2 little boys and we are trying to figure out how to download the newest update 1.8. We are stuck way back on version 1.5.3! I have a Mac computer. I have tried and tried to figure out how to do this but it won't work. I can click all day on the purple line in this link: http://mcupdate.tumblr.com/post/96439224994/minecraft-1-8-the-bountiful-update and nothing happens with any type of hope that it will update to it. The screen basically just refreshes.
Please help us. I am NOT tech-y so please use layman's terms!! And be very specific! Thank you so much!!!:D
I had the same problem all you have to do is open the minecraft launcher, click "edit profile" in the bottem left corner. click the "use version' button and when it says you are only up to date on 1.5.3 or something just scroll up when choosing version then you can pick the update you want
Here's your problem: you are using the pre-1.6 minecraft launcher. Go to minecraft.net/download and download the Windows Minecraft Launcher (if you use a MAC or Linux then you would use that launcher download). Drag the download out onto the desktop when you are done. Open up the launcher, and log in. This will make a profile for you, and you can change what version you have. Usually it will be (by default) set on "Latest Version" (which would be 1.8). You can edit your profile and change your version to any version!
If you have any questions feel free to shoot me up!
