Minecraft Update

Quick update: forgot to mention this, but updated the Minecraft server to version 1.9 prerelease 4.

Client: http://assets.minecraft.net/1_9-pre4/minecraft.jar

Upgrade instructions:

  • Windows 7/Vista: Clobber the minecraft.jar in your “C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\bin” directory with the new one. Now run your usual Minecraft launcher. That’s it!
  • MacOS: Clobber minecraft.jar in “/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin” with the updated .jar file. Now run with the usual Minecraft launcher.

All your stuff should still be in the server. Enjoy 🙂

MacOS Protip: You’ll probably have to use terminal to move the jar file into the target directory. The GUI seems to hide stuff.

Windows Protip: Getting constant memory related crashes? Install a genuine 64-bit Java build and force Minecraft to use it by explicitly pointing to the 64-bit executable. Sample batch file:

"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -jar "c:\games\Minecraft\minecraft.exe"

Be sure to have to have it execute the launcher, not the .jar file or it won’t work. Most crashes should magically disappear.
