    Ok so - A new version of Minecraft has launched, and in your haste to get your heavily pixelated fix - you clicked the 'Update Now' button in the launcher. You'll probably find that you now cannot log into most servers as they will be waiting on their server software/plugins updating to accomodate the changes of the latest version.

    Fret not, young warrior - there are easy ways to downgrade your minecraft.

    General Users: Download the relevent spout client from here http://get.spout.org/

    Windows 7 Users: Windows 7 offers a utility which utilises small compressed files stored in system restore points and allows you to restore individual files from the point itself. Note that this will only work if you have a system restore point or a backup prior to your update.

    Step 1 -
    Click the start pearl and type %appdata% in the 'search programs and files' search bar.

    Step 2 -
    Navigate to your .Minecraft folder.

    Step 3 -
    Inside your .minecraft folder - Navigate to the bin folder.

    Step 4 -
    Right click Minecraft.jar and select 'Restore Previous Versions' from the dialogue menu.

    Step 5.
    Choose a restore point and click restore.
