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.

  • What's wrong with being able to update the game from the official site? – Frank Dec 4 '13 at 22:10
  • The official site is blocked in this environment. – Seal Dec 4 '13 at 22:16
  • ...what are you trying to do? Play MC at work or school or something? – Frank Dec 4 '13 at 22:17

    If you're at home, how is it blocked? From what I can tell of that error message, it's more a problem with a bad download, not a blocked site. – Frank Dec 4 '13 at 22:26

    So the proper answer then is to either get them to unblock Minecraft, or buy your own internet. – Frank Dec 4 '13 at 22:38

There are no official alternate download servers for Minecraft.

  • Could there be an unofficial one? Or are these files changed frequently to make this not possible? – Seal Dec 4 '13 at 21:45

    It is against Mojang's TOS to distribute the minecraft.jar anywhere except for their official servers. – aman207 Dec 4 '13 at 21:46
  • Are these viles the .jar? i figured they were just .dll or something. – Seal Dec 4 '13 at 21:48
  • Minecraft is coded in Java so there are no .dll files, just .jar files and the entire game is in this jar. – aman207 Dec 4 '13 at 21:49

    Could I download them at another location which isn't blocked and bring them to this computer? The 1.7.2.jar and .json files are already installed. – Seal Dec 4 '13 at 21:50
