Developer URLs[edit]

Developer calls and URLs found on the Minecraft Forum, game files, API, Authentication, and Legacy Authentication:<VERSION>/<FILENAME>

Used to download resources for the client and for the server up to version 1.5.2.<VERSION>/<FILENAME>

Used to download resources for the client past version 1.6.2.<USERNAME>&password=<PASSWORD>&version=12<USERNAME>&password=<PASSWORD>&version=12

The Minecraft launcher uses this to authenticate logins. If the username and password are valid for a premium account, returns "<POSIX time>:<hash of password>:<username with correct capitalization>:<newly generated session id>:". If username and password are invalid, returns "Bad login". If the username and password are correct, but the account isn't premium, returns "User not premium". If the given version number is less than 12, returns "Old version". The username is not case-sensitive.<USERNAME>&sessionId=<SESSION ID>&serverId=<SERVER ID>

This link seems to be called when a server with online-mode=true checks if it should allow a player to join the game. The session ID is generated by the launcher when logging in (users can also generate them with the "getversion.jsp" link above). This URL returns "OK" if the given session ID is the last one to have been generated for that username; otherwise it returns a "Bad login" error.

This link is called when a user attempts to connect to a server that is in violation of Mojang Studios' End User License Agreement, which returns the following error message on the client: Network is unreachable<URL>
