I recently purchased Minecraft for PC, I'm using the original launcher, and each time I try to play, after login, the development console print several lines with the following contents:
[22:51:40 WARN]: Couldn't download https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Resources/sounds/mob/ghast/moan4.ogg for job 'Resources' java.lang.RuntimeException: Server responded with 503
In a web browser I tried to navigate to the given URL: https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Resources/sounds/mob/ghast/moan4.ogg and I got the following message:
<Error> <Code>SlowDown</Code> <Message>Please reduce your request rate.</Message> <RequestId>46A2AFCF228B1D66</RequestId> <HostId> dmpYz3T/jMyqR+5oY7xN95oti4iNxFOP+MhTPLd+/T3NBars/jK81PdX2J4X0mZ/ </HostId> </Error>
Obviously the backend server (Amazon) has issues providing the default resources for Minecraft. Is there any way to obtain those default resources and do a manual installation?
