Minecraftier is a lightweight app for managing Minecraft.
It can do this for you:
- Install Minecraft and add a systemwide launcher to start it
- Update LWJGL (can fix blackscreen, mouse-issues or various glitches)
- Reserve RAM for Minecraft
- Create new Minecraft-launchers wherever you want em
- Reset Minecraft (You'll get a vanilla install, except that savefiles is intact)
- Launch Minecraft
- Debug Minecraft (Saves runtime-log to user-selected location)
- Uninstall Minecraft
- Install Java (OpenJDK 7)
- Backup all your savefiles and settings
- Restore a previously created backup
- Help you translate glyphs from ingame (Standard Galactic Alphabet)
- Install Forge & Forge Modloader for Minecraft 1.5.2
- Install Optifine HD for Minecraft 1.5.2, adds loads of graphic-options to Minecraft (highly recommended!)
- Assist with installing Mods
- And a few more
Download latest version from Github
Download Minecraftier to your computer
Open up the archive and enter the "minecraftier-master" folder
Drag minecraftier to your desktop (or any other folder)
Doubleclick minecraftier and choose run
Alternatively you may download to your desktop using this command:
In case your unable to run it, and it only opens up in a texteditor, make it executable first.Code:cd `xdg-user-dir DESKTOP` && wget https://github.com/rikardjo/minecraftier/archive/master.zip && unzip -j master.zip minecraftier-master/minecraftier -d . && rm master.zip
If it still won't run, paste this in a terminal to make Nautilus to ask you if you want to run executable files:
Then try doubleclicking minecraftier again.Code:gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences executable-text-activation ask
You'll see a GPLv3 license-agreement upon start, I wanted to be both clear and a cool kid so I added it. Upon accepting your total freedom of using Minecraftier it stores a settingsfile in /tmp so that you don't need to accept every time you run it. (only after each reboot, but that will be fixed soon)
More ideas when I get the time is to improve the ugly glyph-translator. It's something I threw together in JS rather quick. Also splitting up menus into several sub-windows might be something. Feel free to come up with ideas.
And enjoy Minecraftier!
