Minecraft: Update 1.6 Brings New Launcher Interface

By   /   3 years ago

The new 1.6 update for Minecraft brings not only additions and improvements to the game but also a brand-new launcher interface.

Now instead of manually updating your game every time, Mojang has gone with a conventional launcher setup that will automatically update your game to the latest patch as soon as you launch the program. This of course proves to be a time saver and is something that was long overdue.

Players have the freedom to revert back to an older version at any time. This is so that players can join servers which may not be updated to the latest patch.

The feature of automatic updating can also be turned off if players wish to save their bandwidth. Simply head into options and enable ‘offline mode’ to have the launcher not scan for servers to download the update from.

The developer claims that the new interface improves security and stability, as well as boasts some ‘behind the scenes’ code which will help for future API changes.

The new launcher is mandatory if you’re to run version 1.6 and beyond. Starting the game now will prompt players on older versions to update their game. You can head here to download the new interface.

In related news, Minecraft on the Xbox 360 has been confirmed to cross 7 million in sales. The retail version of the game is already available in stores and are being sold out instantly. 4J Studios is trying its best to bring every soul on this planet into their pixilated world. I hope they are able to cope with the new crowd… you know what, I think they can too.
