The Magic Launcher makes loading mods and switching between various versions of Minecraft easier than ever. Have you ever downloaded one of the minecraft snapshots but later wanted to play a map designed for an earlier release? With the Magic Launcher you can simply choose which .jar file to use. Handy!
In addition to that you can also load various minecraft mods WITHOUT altering your minecraft.jar file. The launcher also automatically checks for conflicts amongst your mods and checkes requirements for various mods that needs things like ModLoader to work. That means no guessing why your latest mod isn’t working.
Long story short, this is the launcher Mojang have been saying they were going to make for over a year now and still haven’t made. It’s clean, it’s multifunctional and it allows you much greater control over your minecraft experience each and every time you launch the game without having to get into the bin and .jar files and mess around every time you want to turn a mod off or on.
But wait, there’s more. Really. The Magic Launcher also allows you to change your java settings right in the launcher, with changeable java limits and custom parameters. Brilliant. All these options are available via the tabs at the top of the launcher which expand the launch interface and increase functionality exponentially.
