Skins working with 1.11

Skins should be working again. You may need to delete the launcher_profiles.json and usercache.json inside your .minecraft directory.

Fix for info.mineshafter.GameStarter bug

This latest update should fix the error for people who have been seeing it.

A big thank you to the people who figured out how to fix it and posted tutorials. It helped a lot with fixing the bug.

Your servers are safe

The server list is getting moved out to a separate site. The link to it will be added once it's finished. In the mean time, there are new and better ways to login now.

Skin Update!

Skins work again!

Some Changes

I've neglected this place for a while.

This is just to let people know that there will be some changes on the site soon.

The server list will be broken off as a separate site. Your existing servers will be migrated to the new site. Votes will be reset since the voting system hasn't been working correctly for some time. Server descriptions may be kept or dumped depending on the format of the new server list.

With any luck I might be able to get skins working again as well.
