Video Collection

After being banned on December 14, 2010, JS_Sam1999 discovered a way to still play the 16.05 branch on singleplayer. On December 22, 2011, they would record a video that is now known as Video 6 in Video Collection. In this video, they showcase a tutorial on "How to play MineCraft offline". This involves going to the game files and editing act.id in a Hex Editor. In the video, they modifies two sets of Hexes. First, they change 20 BC 30 8D to 00 00 00 02, which modifies their PlaytesterID to that of Dev2's. After this, they also changes the values 63 48 4A 76 5A to 64 47 56 7A 64, switching the server the launcher is connected to from a production server to a testing one, allowing JS_Sam1999 to load into Alpha v1.0.16.05_18# on dev2's account.
