Minecraft Launcher Repair Tool (MCL-2494_FIX)

After experiencing an issue with Minecraft Launcher 1.5  and realizing many others were having the same issues, I made this tool to help them quickly fix the problem.

I’m releasing this to the public today even though there was an update to the Launcher (1.5.1) as I’m not sure if the update addressed the issue and even if it does the tool may still come in handy for someone or myself later on as it does have other useful functions which I may build upon more in time. At the very least it’s here for archival purposes.

You can download the tool here: MCL-2494_FIX.zip
[No Password! No Surveys! No Malware! No Viruses!]


Once you’ve extracted the files from the .zip package you can check the MCL-2494_FIX.exe against the hashes included (and below in this post) to verify it’s authenticity and that it hasn’t been tampered with. As long as you’re downloading the file here, there shouldn’t be a problem.

Release: FreePlay64 for iOS

I have just released “FreePlay64” on my Temporary Repository (Link Below).

FreePlay64 is an App available from my Cydia repository that will install 31 Games into the Commodore 64 App for iOS.

These games are actually already located in the C64 Directory, this utility will extract and install each game as they were originally designed to be played, unmodified. I may decided to release a modified package with full Keyboard support in the future if there’s enough interest in such.

I will release these as individual packages soon for those of you that don’t want to install all of them.

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you delete and re-install the Commodore 64 App before installing this package to avoid any conflicts or errors. Once you have re-installed C64, just tap the “FreePlay64” Icon on your springboard and once it finishes the installation it will automatically close and then you may safely remove the “FreePlay64” icon from your screen if using Cydelete, or via Cydia > Manage > Packages > FreePlay64.

I have quite a few projects going at the moment so be sure to follow me on Twitter for updates when those are released. I’m working on other emulators and apps as well.

Repository IconTemporary Repository: http://cydia.myrepospace.com/DNA64/
Details: I’m doing some much needed updating and maintenance on my official Cydia repository, so until further notice the above repository will contain all future releases.

Please install it via Cydia.
You can click HERE if browsing on your iOS Device.

NO Jailbreak?
Download iPhone Explorer (PC & MAC): http://www.macroplant.com/iphoneexplorer/
(Thanks to JeFurry for pointing out that non-jailbroken users can install packages using the above software.)

Step 1.
Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to your PC or Mac and launch iPhone Explorer (Download link posted above).

Step 2.
Select your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch from the list and goto Apps > C64 > C64.app
You will see a series of files ending in .zip like this “com.manomio.C64.airwolf.zip”.
Drag and Drop all of the .zip files to a location on your PC or Mac, and extract them all.

Step 3.
Inside the extracted zip files folders you will find another .zip file.
Example: “airwolf.zip” and a .sign file “airwolf.sign”. (You can delete the .sign file.)

Extract this .zip file and you will see two folders inside.
Example: Airwolf & Images
Copy all images in the images folder to the other folder (Airwolf in this example).

Step 4.
Now copy the other folder (Airwolf in this example) to the “games” folder in Apps > C64 > C64.app/.

Step 5.
Open up the C64 app and your new game will appear. Else you did something wrong or the app was running in the background (Reboot).

C64 GamePack now live on Cydia!

Special Thanks to Ajeje for creating a pkg for Cydia and getting it hosted with BeYouriPhone.

I will of course be releasing an updated pkg myself via the BigBoss Repo soon, and hopefully the GameLoader as well, which I will be working on in these next few days.

Release: GamePack for C64 Emulator! (Build 3)

This is an Update to Build 2 of the GamePack I released earlier.

The games are the same, however I have added additional error checking.
The install script will now search for the “install” file in “/usr/bin/” if the file exists the script will continue. If it cannot find the required file, it will copy the install file included with this GamePack and the set the correct permissions before continuing with the install.
(No Wifi is required, as I opted out of using apt-get as originally planed.)

You can download the new build below:

Release: GamePack for C64 Emulator! (Build 2)

This is an Update to Build 1 of the GamePack I released earlier.

The games are the same, however I have corrected some errors in the README.txt
(Thanks Darren for pointing those out!) and I have added additional error checking
as well as cleaned up the install output.

Darren also pointed out that there was a _MACOSX folder in the GamePack directory
and another GamePack directory under the GamePack directory, how ever the duplicated
folder was caused by the extraction software and method of extraction. So now instead
of the files being in a folder called GamePack, you will need to extract them to a folder
named “GamePack” (Case sensitive) the same as the zip file “GamePack.zip”.
