I know that, but distributing any versions of the minecraft.jar is illegal.
And most of the solutions that people have, are indeed, distributing the .jar's.

Which is why 'wait patiently' is the answer I used for that question.

mojang usually has the jar on their servers somewhere - i can't look it up now, but it's worth checking in to.

Well yeah, if there are previous .jars somewhere which have been supplied by Mojang themselves, then I'll update that part of the faq.

so I'm not the only one who noticed there's not a ton of 'help me' topics all over the place anymore :)

I also realized that under the ps help, there was nothing about crouching while placing pstones. was that fixed or was it forgotten?

That issue has, indeed, been rectified.

Just to note: If you are attempting to play Opticraft via your web browser and you are constantly getting errors or the game is simply not starting up, please not that In-Browser gameplay is currently broken (although this issue may be a hit-and-miss for some people).

Currently, the only recommendation is to play via the downloadable executable client, found at Minecraft.net
