I'm trying to download Minecraft again, and I get this in the download bar of the launcher: Downloading netty-all-4.0.23.Final.jar. Can someone tell me what that means?

Oh and it's either that or this right here: Downloading twitch-external-platform-4.5-natives-windows-32.jar. The reason I'm doing this is because I get those message in the download bar and nothing happens.

Netty is a Java framework for event-driven networking.

The other JAR (Java archive) is the Twitch client API for Java.

  • Ok, and can you tell me why is stay frozen in the download bar and nothing happens. Nov 7, 2015 at 21:29
  • ... Probably because it's taking a while to download it for some reason. Nov 7, 2015 at 21:29
  • So I have to wait for it to download? Nov 7, 2015 at 21:30
  • That would be my guess. If you still see no progress after a little while then I would ask for help on the official forums, since they may be experiencing server issues. Nov 7, 2015 at 21:33
