Are you a texture pack maker, and want to reach a larger audience with better organization? Want to get free stuff for trying out a new system? We've got something that might interest you - Curse Client beta will support any texture packs that do not require patching (such as MCPatcher) for one-click installation. All you have to do is upload their texture pack to dev.bukkit.org, and it will appear in our test Client!
Click the image above (or this link) for details, FAQ and more!
Not only do we allow donation links on Curse.com (with integrated Paypal support for an ad and virus-free download page - no more sketchy looking links!), any user who submits a texture pack that receives at least 1,000 downloads will also receive a free Premium subscription: no ads, and a custom title on MCF! This also means you've got priority for our sweepstakes and giveaways.
We would appreciate your uploading of any and all texture packs to Bukkit that do not require any sort of patching in this test period. It helps both you and your users! Patched texture packs may see support in the near future as we iron out the system, so keep an eye out for it!
You can download the test client to see how the system works as a downloader by clicking here. Check it out!
Find a bug, or want to report a problem? Email any errors, glitches or bugs you might encounter to [email protected], so we can fix them up fast! Keep in mind, this is currently in the testing phase, and is not the final system. Participation means we can make it better, faster, stronger - and host more awesome textures! For anyone using the live Curse Client, you may not see this system in place for a few weeks - once testing and the refinement process is complete, it will go live to every client.
This week, David & Toby talk about the recent Snapshots (so many goodies and bugfixes!),
I'm pretty sure that's not a concern.
I don't believe so - I'll double-check to be sure though.
It's a battle I'm quite familiar with - without getting into specifics, I will simply say that yes, this is definitely being considered. There wouldn't be much incentive to participate if 30 different people could upload your work.
Good question - let me get back to you on this one.
We're actively working on this and should have it added later this Summer
We'll definitely by adding it as soon as it is officialWe're also looking into supporting higher resolution texture packs but wanted to start off with just the basics for now.
added 16x oCd texture pack
Edit: Except of course for Disco_'s pack ^^^ Thats a good one.
Whenever I try to start Minecraft from the Curse client I get this error. I'm guessing my .exe is in the wrong area but I don't know where it needs to be.
Because your EXE can be anywhere on your computer we opted to not support launching of the game from the Curse Client, at least for now.
As we've stated a few times, we wanted to start off with just the basics and work our way up to high rez textures.
Sir, I do believe that Blizzard has beaten you to that trademark.
Curse Client has been used extensively for years. I use it to keep my WoW addons automatically up-to-date. There's only two addons I have to worry about and that's because one refuses to keep their Curse upload up-to-date and the other refuses to use Curse at all. Basically, as long as the author of a texture pack uploads their changes to Curse, you will get it as long as you check the Curse Client, and it will install easier. If you have Curse Premium, you never have to check. Everything updates and installs automatically.
What more can u do.. Save it for 1.3.2! lol
We are working on adding this to the Mac Curse Client later this Summer.
