    Fortunately, it is very easy to play on an older version - I've never updated past 1.6.4 myself (excluding mods, which are entirely separate from vanilla versions) and couldn't care less about 1.18 (or 1.19) as my self-made modded versions are far superior to them precisely because I made them myself - I even implemented many of the changes in 1.18 many years ago, ranging from 2-3 times deeper ground (though I prefer the original depth, a lower lava level does give some more space), more varied surface terrain, better rivers and beaches, and far more variety in caves and underground features (I doubt that most other players spent more than a few minutes in the new caves before getting bored of them and probably rely on iron/resource farms more than ever, and biome generation is mostly still the same as the 1.7 generation that makes most worlds very boring within any reasonable distance of spawn; the game should be renamed to "Buildcraft" or the like).



    nice :D
    These custom builds youre talking about sound very interesting to me and is probably exactly what i was looking for.
    I know of the custom "not so secret saturday" minecraft alpha builds, but i dont play them anymore, primarily because alpha is a bit too old for me and the developers are a**holes.
    Would you mind if i could try one of your own custom minecraft builds out for myself?

    10 BEST Minecraft Launchers - RANKED (2022) - WhatIfGaming


    ^ try this list. I've used some of these like CurseForge and TLauncher before


    Betacraft also exists, alternatively, or you can even do Mineclone.


    Thats like the first search result that comes up when you type "alternative minecraft launcher"

    Furthermore none of the launchers listed there fit to what im looking for, which is a launcher similar to the one in the image.

    And yes i know that BetaCraft exists and i really like it, but its not able to launch newer versions of Minecraft

    i dont like it.
    Im generally not a fan of the recent changes Mojang did to the game.

    Please leave me alone on 1.8.9

    Thanks

    So a while back Mojang (Microsoft) mandated the use of Microsoft accounts to further continue to play Minecraft Java Edition, which also meant the discontinuation of the Legacy Minecraft Launcher.



    I personally dont like the current Minecraft Launcher, because its very slow compared to the old launcher and would like to have the old one from the picture above back.
    Is there some alternative Launcher out there that at least looks like the legacy launcher?
    Or is there maybe a way to modify the old Launcher to work with Microsoft accounts?

    I have several other laptops i sometimes use and theyre all running Windows Vista and XP.
    I personally want to avoid Windows 10 and 11.
    I just dont like them.

    posted a message on Looking to join someones PRIVATE Minecraft Alpha or Beta server.

    Hello everyone,


    i am desperately looking for someone who wants to create a Minecraft
    Alpha or Beta server OR who is looking for new members who are willing
    to join his existing server.
    I would like the server to be a relatively small public or a private server.
    I am tired of asking people to install Hamachi and to convince them to
    play Beta with me only to find them leaving after two sessions or so due
    to them not liking the old version of Minecraft.
    I dont like newer Minecraft versions and i just want to play some good old Minecraft the way it used to be.

    PM me and i will send you my Discord name and tag.

    If you use a different platform of instant communication, like
    Teamspeak, Skype, MSN or Ventrillo, let me know and i will try my best
    to create an account on these as soon as possible.




    Thanks for reading and have a nice day

    Quote from Agtrigormortis»

    Trouble is that sort of hardware is getting rarer these days, someday you won't be able to get it at all.


    if there will ever be an alternative I'd suspect the Pi Foundation to do it, having a Pi computer that could completely take over the functions of Windows 98 and XP with the Nvidia Vulkan drivers would be useful for PC gamers looking for a PC that can run old 32bit and 16bit games better.


    since Pi PC's will never be as powerful as the general desktop or laptop computers on the market,

    it makes sense that they do the next best thing, retro gaming.


    Yeah you are right, hardware will eventually get rare as time goes on, but that's just another reason why people should repair and reuse instead of recycle or throw away.
    Either way as long as there's hardware outside i will still consider running games on real hardware better than emulation in every way.

    Quote from Agtrigormortis»

    The same can be said for Windows 98, it is an MSDOS program that has a user friendly UI, and is a 32bit 16bit hybrid. Which explains why some 32bit programs written for XP were able to run on it, games including.


    Also like its predecessor Windows 95, shortcuts to MSDOS programs could be placed on the desktop and then ran with a simple double click.


    We don't have that convenience anymore because later OS's after ME are NT based.

    and command prompt is terrible at emulating MSDOS.


    Without the third party program DOSbox, or virtual machines, lots of people's libraries of DOS games would have been made entirely useless on Windows 10. WOW64 only allows backward compatibility with 32bit programs, there is nothing in Windows 10 that makes it support 16bit properly.


    Yeah i agree with you on that. Windows 95 / 98 and ME were also only programs running on top of DOS.
    However,Windows 9x actually felt like it was its standalone operating system, as they didn't rely on MS-DOS command lines, like Windows 3.1 did.

    And yes it is a shame that Windows 10 has no proper 16-Bit emulation (and probably never will), but I personally don't really care, as emulation is always a bad idea from my point of view.
    If you really want to play old games i suggest you to pick up an old Windows XP computer from ebay, as its backwards compatibility emulation WOW32 supports 16 bit programs much better than any other OS.
    At the same time, its new enough to play lots of other new games (some even from the mid 2010s).

    Windows 3.1 is technically not its own operating system as it basically only runs as an application on top of MS-DOS.
    It also heavily relied on MS-DOS command lines, which means that every time you wanted to install lets say a Driver for example you needed to switch to MS-DOS, load the driver, then back to Windows 3.1 and THEN install the Windows 3.1 driver, THEN restart once again to make the changes take effect in MS-DOS as well as Windows 3.1.

    Kinda inconvenient, is it?

    Windows 3.1, never crashed and did what you needed it to, no faff on top



    also yeah forgot to quote you.

    Very, very nice Lets Play series.
    Your art of speaking and showing off the map gives me so much nostalgia.
    However, i have a slight improvement that you can make regarding skins and sounds.
    I would suggest you to download this launcher to be able to play very old versions of Minecraft in the much safer online mode
    and have all that stuff like correct skins and sounds.
    Download it here:

    https://mineonline.codie.gg/

    Minecraft 1.2.5 wont probably show up instantly in the versions list.
    Just browse for the 1.2.5 .jar file if it doesn't.

    You could also make a vanilla survival Beta 1.7.3 lets play or a Tekkit Lite survival Lets Play series.
    It would be really cool to see that.


    Bottom line: Excellent Lets play! Keep it up!
