About This File
Here's a fully working version of Minecraft that can be run from a thumb-drive if you are like me and want to be able to take Minecraft with you anywhere. It works by adding the data folder to the portable folder with the help from a .bat file.
You can even run resource packs with it and connect to realms. The launcher downloads the latest version of Minecraft so there should be no problem.
Screenshots are taken using the portable version, playing 1.11.2 on my own realm.
Note that this is the full version of Minecraft so you still need a Mojang account to login and run the game.
- Download the .zip file and unpack it.
- Rename the folder to anything you want
- Run the .bat file that is located inside the folder. This will update the .exe file inside the Bin folder and start the launcher
- Run the bat file every time you want to launch the game. This makes sure that files are saved in the portable folder.
There you go. Take MC with you and play it with your settings and resourcepacks from anywhere.
