How to install the jar(For PC) if you you are on a mac, just search it up on google how to install because i'm on a PC
1.Open up your Run application by pressing you Start button key and your R key at the same time. Or you could open up your start window and in the search bar, search: Run
2.Next a window should pop up and then you should open up the Roaming folder and select .Minecraft (Notice the dot before the Minecraft)
3.Open up your bin folder
4.Then take your 1.9 jar and drag it into your minecraft.jar (If it asks to merge, Select YES )
5. Then after merging close everything

Step 3: You Are on the 1.9 Wagon Now :D

Reopen minecraft and now you can now try the 1.9 pre-release before it's officially out.
Now remember to post any bugs on the same forum page where you downloaded the jar from kk.

When it's full release on November 18,then it would be $20.

no, it crashes. the games close as soon as i load a game or i go to a server

MI16007 (author)jbouffard2011-09-28

You make sure that you installed it correctly and that you have a vanilla(Clean with no mods) Jar. And you can't join any servers that aren't 1.9 compatible.But other than that, it should work.
