Default Don't update your client

Just a reminder that if you want to keep playing on the TOG server after the update Mojang are rolling out today, you need to NOT update your client when offered.

The TOG server will continue to run beta version 1.3 until the mods we use are updated to support the new version. Based upon past experience that may be up to 1-2 weeks. We will keep you informed as to when the server will be updated.

If you intend updating to try out the new stuff in singleplayer and then rolling back to beta 1.3 to play on the server then make sure you've backed up your version beta 1.3 (e.g. C:\Users\Thermal\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\) first as there's no in built roll back functionality, and note that it's untested as to how Minecraft.net's authentication server treats new installs of old versions.

May I point out that not updating immediately is sanctioned by Mojang, because they added the feature to the launcher to make it optional (and Notch has recently told someone how to use it on Twitter so their son can keep playing with mods until the mods are updated as well).

Another thing to add:

If you haven't downloaded the whole game from mojang for a while you won't actually have the new launcher. It doesn't download automatically like the rest of the game files, you have to either download it manually, or download the entire game manually to get it.

So if you haven't done anything but letting the game update itself the last months it's probably still on the old launcher and will update automatically. So make sure to download the new launcher before you even start the game, or you won't even have a choise.

Same here. I didn't realize that I needed to manually upgrade the launcher to get the new optional-update feature. Well, its back to Rift and Dragon Age II for me.

In case you've accidently updated, a link to a vanilla 1.3_01 minecraft.jar file can be downloaded here: removed. Just replace your updated minecraft.jar with this.

Edit: Link removed, not allowed under minecraft TOS. Use this tool to patch to a previous version instead: [TOOL] Cyborg's Tools - Beta 1.4 Patches

Can you run the browser version at say 1.3, and the downloadable client at 1.4 maybe? (Or vice versa)?

I suspect the browser version runs the latest version by default. I suspect that you could run the downloadable version at 1.3.

That said, at work I tried to run separate versions of the client and let one update. Then I found that all versions were updated . Not sure how that happened. At least I still have 1.3 working non-updated here at home.

So as Thermal said, if you want keep playing at TOG until we update, don't update anything. Don't even experiment like I did at work.

The browser version downloads the game files to your disk just like the downloadable client does, and they share the same files. So if one updates, both get updated (as they use the same game files).
