Recently I upgraded to the newest version of Minecraft only to find out that it's not compatible with a few of my favorite mods that I use. So I got my backup 1.5.2 jar, and used a custom launcher (Magic Launcher), and everything works fine.

The only issue is that when I go to the screen there is a nagging message saying that 1.6.2 is available for download. Can I get rid of it somehow or what?


The game checks the following URL before showing the reminder for manual download:


If this URL is blocked for the client or returns empty content, the notice will not appear. This can be achieved by configuring a firewall or a proxy. For instructions on how to do that, you would receive more competent responses on superuser.com.

  • How would I go about doing that using the hosts file? – s6th Sep 10 '13 at 23:04
  • I'm not sure if you can use the hosts file for that - the game may need assets.minecraft.net to be accessible. – Kcats Sep 11 '13 at 5:49
  • Your router may be able to perform this service. – Chris Nava Sep 29 '13 at 2:27

what worked for me is disconnect to the internet and it will go away. I had the problem with the scmowns mod pack. if your trying to connect to that, reconnect to the internet and quickly click on it before it comes back!
