    Default [Tool] MultiMod - Run different versions/mods of Minecraft

    Hi all,

    Switching your .minecraft folder or .jar file over all the time if you want to run a different version of minecraft (either a modded one or simply a different patch) started to drive me nuts. So I made this tool with which you can have different versions of minecraft installed at the same time.

    It allows you to create a normal shortcut to each version, so it will launch as instantly as normal, no need to swap files around or go through tons of different menus. It also uses the normal Mojang Minecraft launcher which you can get at minecraft.net/download.







    DOWNLOAD - v1.0

    Note 1: I have tested it myself, though I can't guarantee it's entirely bug free on the initial launch. Please report any bugs if you find them, thanks

    Note 2: if you add a new version to the list, you will have to launch it first in order to download all files before you can start making changes to it. Of course you can also choose to manually put the files in place by pressing the "Open game folder" button.

    is it possible to make a version that doesn't just run on windows? (can't run mc in windows due to w8 gfx drivers)

    A .jar file instead of exe. would do.

    Nice job Pat. For Linux users, you can probably run this under Wine. Mac users, get a rope and use that thing for a boat anchor.

    Lol'd so hard at this.

    And apple, I use windows integrated graphics (I have a switchable system, which I hate -_-) to run minecraft and it works fine.

    It's not the card but the drivers for windows 8 that's not out with openGL support.
