I am trying to get mods on my minecraft but the folder isn't there and so I can't get to my minecraft.jar folder... and I even looked in the version folder where someone told me the bin folder would be and it wasn't there. is there any way to get the bin folder so I can get to the minecraft.jar folder?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There is no bin folder anymore. See this question's answer:… – SevenSidedDie Jul 27 '13 at 21:03

If you are using any version higher than 1.5.2, your jars will be located in .minecraft > versions > (version) > (version).jar. So if you are using 1.6.2, you will want to mod .minecraft > versions > 1.6.2 > 1.6.2.jar.

In case you are wondering why you don't have a bin file - it was only used in versions 1.5.2 and below. The new Minecraft launcher doesn't use or create a bin file - it will only be there if you played Minecraft versions 1.5.2 and below.

The question linked to sucks and should be rewritten. – James Jul 27 '13 at 22:07
@James Go nuts with the editing then. This is still a duplicate. – SevenSidedDie Jul 27 '13 at 22:11
