    Hey i did exactly what the instructions said but when i loaded minecraft it said updating then the screen went black and it wont go to the main page.

    the modloader link has same SHA1 value as the minecraft v1.0.0 modloader.

  4. geeez says:

    this file IS NOT 1.8.1, it’s 1.0

  5. Isaac says:

    Hey, for all who get the Black Screen, he forgot a step. In the minecraft.jar there’s a folder called “META-INF” delete that, the whole thing.

  6. Piripács says:

    Yes. The download link is for the LATEST VERSION, NOT FOR 1.8.1.
    With that link you always get the newest version, not any older versions.

    Very sad, Risugami -the maker of the mod- dont give us any options for download any older versions. Only for the latest.

    CAN YOU PUT A LINK FOR THE REAL 1.8.1 version?

  7. Cal says:

    It doesn’t work! When I start Mincraft, I get a blackscreen! META-INF Folder is deleted. What can I do?

  8. Awoniyi says:

    All of this? tutorial is ursnceseany. When you download the Optifine, at the top of the thread there is a Magic downloader you can download which makes it where you just save the mod to your desktop, and select it from the Magic Downloader and it does it all for you.

  9. Lawrence says:

    Hey, I don’t see “bins” in my .minecraft folder. So I can’t load any of the mod loaders. Does someone know what the problem is?

    I don’t have the bins folder…. What do I do?

Got something to say? Go for it!
