I have been wanting to play the April fools Minecraft 2.0 version for a long time but, all the methods I have found on the internet only work on the previous Minecraft launchers. For example, one of the methods is to switch out your current minecraft.jar inside of your bin with a "minecraft2.jar" {it is called minecraft.jar as well}. But in the new launcher, the bin no longer contains the minecraft.jar. Is there any way I can get this 2.0 version on the new launcher or do I have to play it somewhere else?

A simple google search will throw plenty of results at you, here's one from the official Minecraft Wiki: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Minecraft_2.0 (proving multiple links)

In future please do try to look for something yourself before asking here :)

  • @LordOfMilk Sounds like you got some Googling to do. :)

  • @Frank This is where you end up when 'you have some googling to do'

  • @RyanTheLeach And? It doesn't absolve you of putting in effort yourself beforehand.

  • @LordOfMilk Try running the jar files themselves. I doubt the wiki has unusable .jar files lying around on it, it's even gone to the effort of duplicating the old unworking ones. There's probably even a video or guide on how to use them there. If you're still having issues I will look at home for you. Jun 9, 2017 at 7:15
