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?


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.
