I'm trying to get a download of the jar version of a minecraft server for 1.2.3, but when I download from the minecraft website it's a zip?
Can someone provide a download for me or at least show me where I can get a jar instead of a zip? I am using Windows 7 and I already have the startserver.bat set up, because I had a 1.1 jar file.
Dude try renaming it to minecraft_server.jar, if hat doesn't work,
Press the windows button and type in the search bar "file options" without the quotation marks of course, then click on file options and a little box will pop up. Click properties then scroll down till you see "hide extensions for unknown file types" or something like that. Click that. Then try renaming it to .zip then back to .jar and it should work. If it doesn't, pm me and we will talk about it further.
