Hello everybody, usually minecraft_name.jar needs to download a file from minecraft.net, Notch and his Team deleted/moved this file, so the Name-Change dosnt work, i did setup an equal Server like minecraft.net for the minecraft_name.jar.
This works only for Versions below than 1.3.
Everything u have to do is to manipulate the DNS Lookup of minecraft.net.
On Windows u open the file "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts" with an Editor, then write this "188.8.131.52 minecraft.net" on a new line and save it.
On Unix u open the file "/etc/hosts" with any text editor u want (like nano), then write this "184.108.40.206 minecraft.net" on a new line and save it.
MaxOSX work as same like Unix, just do it in a Terminal.
Otherwise u can download a Patcher for doing it automatically:
Now the minecraft_name.jar NameChange Crack works again!.
If u need to visit minecraft.net, then just delete the entry in the file, and everything is like before.
