Ever since minecraft stopped using the amazon site to host it's resource files, I've been unable to run 1.6+ minecraft. I'm sure this is because I can't get the native resources on startup. For instance:
couldn't download http://resources.download.minecraft.net/cf/cf23204a9cca2ac7f9674168cc063cfb4dbe001f for job 'Resources'java.lang.RuntimeException: Hash did not match downloaded file (Expected cf23204a9cca2ac7f9674168cc063cfb4dbe001f, downloaded 9216ea5b710f7b6c49873ffb221c7ad848d5c9d5)
It gives this error about 50 times, then finally:
Java.lang.NullPointerException: Initializing game Client> at azd.a(SourceFile:502}Client> at azd.Z(SourceFile:340) Client> at azd.e(SourceFile:689) Client> at net.minecraft.client.main.Main.main(SourceFile:103)
The game crashes.
This gives me the same errors on 1.5.2 and prior however it doesn't crash and seems to run perfectly.
Until today it would work in play offline mode as well.
This computer is in an environment with internet restrictions. The old amazon site wasn't blocked, so it was no problem to download the required items each time.
All I need is an alternate download for the files i need to run 1.7.2, or maybe if I can be told how to get to them from a computer that can run 1.7.2. Also how to run them without having to re-re-download them.
