    How To Play Minecraft School

    [​IMG]

    Things you will need:

    - A flash drive/File Sharing Account
    - A Minecraft account
    - Windows

    Step 1

    While at home, go on your PC. Hit start, than type in run, and once it opens type: '%appdata%'

    At this point, you will see lots of folders. Naviaget to the folder labeled .Minecraft and copy it to you Flash drive or Upload it.
    [​IMG]
    *Also make sure to copy the Minecraft executable to your device/upload as well!

    Step 2

    Once at school, Hit start, than type in run, and once it opens type: '%appdata%' again. Now move the .Minecraft folder from your flashdrive into the current window, %appdata%.

    Last, move the Minecraft.exe onto the school computer's desktop. Finally, you should be able to play [offline], as most of the schools have blocked Minecraft.net by now.

    Final Notes and Tips
    Remember to delete your .Minecraft folder and executable to avoid any trouble. Also, Its better to use a storage device rather than a file sharing site. Most schools have them blocked and its faster to use a USB or external HDD.
    You don't need to use your own appdata folder.
    You don't need your .Minecraft folder if the school doesn't have the Minecraft website fire walled (If you've paid for the game).
    You can also use a portable version of minecraft and it should work just fine.

    Comment or PM if you have any questions

    Yeah it is blocked at most schools, like I said in the TUT. This is why I made this so people who can't access Minecraft.net can at least play the offline version.

    Yeah, I have seen people post wondering how to get around the school's firewall and this is the easiest way. :p

    I'm sure most schools would have this website blocked and downloading content from the internet is blocked at almost all schools.

    When do you ever get an opportunity to just go on the computer and do what you want in school? i am a sophomore in highschool and the only time I remember being able to play games on the computer was in 6th grade if we finished early during keyboarding.

    I spend 3 hours a day in class either playing BFBC2, Black Ops, L4D2, or any of the other many games on my laptop or I am an Valve Hammer making CSS maps.

    So you can say I get an opportunity for about half the day to do that.

    And I have my ASUS G73J to thank for that :)

    There is already a TUT somewhere on here for it...

    No... I never said I copied off HF. I wanted to know how to do this, I google'd it and found a way on HF. I tried it and it worked so I made my own tut using that method.

    Nice tutorial, but why did you have to look it up? I'm not bashing or anything, but it's common sense. Put all the files on the flash drive.

    I suppose it could be hard for some people to get to the App Data folder, though.
