This tutorial might just be too old now, so if it doesn't work, I'm sorry!

This blog is on the top of the Google search results for "mcpatcher tutorial"! thanks guys!

Today I'll show you how to use and install MCPatcher, it's quite simple.

How To Install MCPatcher 1. Google MCPatcher and open the top link (usually MinecraftDL) and scroll down the page, it should say Download MCPatcher for 1.7.9 or whichever the current Minecraft version is, click that link, then find the DLL (Download link) 2. When download is complete, drag MCPatcher out of your download folder and onto your desktop. 3. Double-click MCPatcher to run 4. Click patch when you have added your texture/mod. (read on)

For Texture Packs. Texture packs will say "This texture pack requires MCPatcher of Optifine (a very useful mod, get it)". 1. Download the texture pack you want. 2. Click your windows button, then type in %appdata% and hit enter. find .minecraft and open that. (I advise right-clicking and creating a shortcut on the desktop for easy access). Find the "resource packs" folder and put you texture pack in there. 3. Run MCPatcher 4. Click "Patch" 5. Run Minecraft

For Mods 1. Download your mod 2. open .minecraft > bin > minecraft / minecraft.jar > open with > WinRAR/7zip > delete the META-INF folder > open your mod file, drag and drop all the files into the bin folder. (Doesn't work for all mods, be sure to watch an installation tutorial). 3. open the MCPatcher and hit Patch 4. Play Minecraft

Mods: Method Two 1. Download mod. 2. Run MCPatcher 3. Click "add" or the "+" button, find your mod file, and click "add". This doesn't work for some mods, but does for TooManyItems, Rei Minimap, etc.

NOTE: this method works for some mods only, you may need Modloader and and other programs like that. If MCPatcher didn't work for your mod, google "How to install Flan's gun mod" for example.

Mods: Install MagicLauncher, then install your mods with that, so simple! No minecraft.jar or anything needed, just click the buttons...

WARNING!
If you patch when you have a mod installed, the mod WILL be removed (unless you've installed it with the Patcher). All your achievements will be removed too.

I have no clue what I need to do to fix my problem- I have downloaded mcpatcher, downloaded the specific texturepack I wanted and placed it in the resourcepack folder. Then I pressed "patch" on mcpatcher and ran Minecraft. Nothing happened so I moved the pack into the texturepack folder, and nothing happened also. Help?
First of all make sure the file you downloaded is compressed as a .zip, JohnSmithv4.8.zip, for example.

I will try it, thanks Master Fighterbear :)
hey dude for some reason i cant check the boxes on the program
That's a strange problem... Is the Patcher stuck on 'Patching'? While it's patching the tockboxes are unusable, but afterwards they are. Have you got the right MCPatcher downloaded?

It doesn't have to be amazing, I ran this with my 9-year-old business laptop, so you should be fine. If you run into problems, just tell me. I'll try to find out more.
Thanks

Some of the stuff works, but the graphics are still kinda normal. You know what I mean?
Yes I've noticed that when switching between textures while using this, some textures aren't changed. That's the mod maker's fault, not mine. He should fix it :3

I've got something, do you need both optifine and MC Patcher? Or just one? I'm confused. :9
they both work on their own. Optifine decreases lag as a bonus and adds more options for video setting in-game. MCPatcher you can add mods and things, and it also fixes textures. At the moment i'm having problems with both, the mods aren't working properly...

well i don't think you should have deleted .minecraft. try re-running minecraft, it should replace the .minecraft with a new one. Otherwise ask me, i'll find something out.

That's odd... I've never had that problem, so I don't think i can help :/
Maybe download another version of MCPatcher from the website? Have you downloaded the .exe file (these run the programs)? if none of these work, i don't know what to say.

Hmm, sorry. I don't know how to fix this, i'm no pro. I use Windows 7 too, and mine works so maybe you should search it on YouTube.com
