Archivists looking to preserve every version of Minecraft that ever existed have found the long-lost Alpha 1.1.1. It was online for less than 3.5 hours before it was taken offline by Mojang due to a serious graphics error.
September 2010 Alpha 1.1.1 Updateupdate It brought some new features With it, like a new fishing rod, the ability to Offside It contained five plates. However, these improvements are not the reason why this version has proven popular among a select few fans. This popularity is related to another “feature”, which thanks to an error in Gamma slider correctionThe code caused the gamma and contrast values to be turned to zero, resulting in a gray screen.
This is of course not what developer Mojang had in mind with this update, so less than 3.5 hours later, the update was taken offline again. Later update 1.1.2 appeared, which no longer contains this “feature”. For most people, 1.1.1 is no longer important, but there is a club of archivists who want to find all the versions. So, this club, Omniarchive, searched the internet for the long-lost Alpha 1.1.1 version. A search didn’t show anything for a long time until last Friday.
a Omniarchive member saw Twitter user LunaSorcery wrote about the then-new Minecraft update in September 2010. Judging from the time of the tweet, there was a good chance it was an Alpha version 1.1.1. Randomly, an Omniarchive ProffApple member sent a message urging Luna to look for backups. She couldn’t find anything on her laptop, But on an external hard drive She was more fortunate.
Luna sent the files to Omniarchive, which confirmed the correct Alpha version. This is now too It can be downloaded from the Internet ArchiveIncluding bug fixing. Something that brought great joy to the members of Omniarchive, as can be seen in the screenshot below. Luna says she learned a wise lesson: you should never delete files. You never know who could make you happy after more than a decade.
