  5. Description
  6. ===========
  7. MCNostalgia is a tool that takes binary difference patches and applies them to the latest version of Minecraft, essentially reverting it to an older version, without ever distributing any .jar files illegally. Binary difference patches are made by taking the differences between two files, one is the source/old file, in this case the latest version of Minecraft, the other is the output/new file, in this case an older version of Minecraft. To patch the files, MCNostalgia requires Minecraft to be unmodified.

  10. Install
  11. =======
  12. 1) Extract the archive to any folder
  13. 2) Install python
  14. 3) Run MCNostalgia, it should enter Configurator mode
  15. 4) Choose which options you would like enabled, if you want it to work with different directories than the default ones, I highly suggest you disable alerts. It is recommended that you leave errors and logging enabled.
  16. 5) Choose quit.

  19. You will need to get the bspatch tool in order for this to work, Macs come with it already, and a Windows version(named bsapply to avoid the UAC's catchall of the term patch) is included in the archive.

  46. The emergency tool will delete the backup, as well as the version file in .minecraft/bin, forcing Minecraft to update and getting rid of any potentially dangerous files that could be causing issues. Only use this if you somehow manage to break the patcher.
