Hello Guys! Today I have something a little differrent for you!

If any of you have played on 1.8, you would know how much has been added since then. But for people like me who started around 1.2.5 or so, you wont know. Well, this is for you.

Unfortunately, this tool is Mac only but it is pretty cool. But don't worry, I will leave instructions for Windows.

This thing is awesome. It allows you to automatically install 1.8 in your client, and aytumatically set up a 1.8 server for your friends to play on! But don't worry, you just run a script and the current version will be re-installed. BUT THAT'S NOT IT! If you had any mods installed, they will be re-installed with your game!

DOWNLOAD (for Mac Users):

Mediafire [2.07KB]

INSTRUCTIONS (for Windows Users):


1. Open your browser and paste this in the address bar: assets.minecraft.net/1_8-pre/minecraft.jar (or click the link if your lazy :P)
2. Open Run and type %appdata%
3. Open the Roaming folder (Not required for Windows XP)
4. Open the .minecraft folder
5. Open the bin folder
6. Rename or delete minecraft.jar and drop in the one you downloaded
7. Run the game and enjoy!


1. Follow the instructions to install the game in your client
2. Open your browser and paste this in the address bar: assets.minecraft.net/1_8-pre/minecraft_server.jar (or click the link if your lazy :P)
3. Drop it in it's own folder

5. Join the server and enjoy!
