I re-grabbed the mc exe from the site and still didn't get prompted to update. Away it went! Doing it by itself.

Yes the first time you install/run the updated exe it will always update to the latest version without asking. Now that you have it installed however, you can replace the v 1.6 minecraft.jar file with the 1.5.02 version and the next time you start the game it will give you the prompt to update which you can decline.

You can stop MC from bugging you to update by renaming your .minecraft directory, then do a fresh install.
Just copy the "version" file in the bin directory of the new installation into your old .minecraft dir (and rename it back) and that will trick the updater into thinking you have the new version.

I'm finding it almost unplayable since 1.6 hit (patches included). )=

I hop in and the world just won't appear. If I wait (for ages) it sometimes shows up, relogging doesn't help. Also the portals to the Nether are borked. Looks like they all port to the same place in the nether, but porting back might take you to any of'em. Keeps shifting around (on SMP btw).

From what I have read (but not tested), there are various tricks to getting the portals to go where you want. Some of them depend on which side of the portal you enter from. The many overworldne nether portal thing has to do with proximity and a detection limit. If you want a semi-technical explanation of it all, go to Nether Portal Science - Minecraft Forum .

Cheers, I knew the 1:8 rule but didn't know how portals linked to one another. Gah. Why did all the new arrivals have to move in all around my area. I chose it specifically because nobody was nearby! lol.
