Alpha v1.2.2 is the name given to two versions of Alpha released on November 10, 2010.[1] Server version 0.2.4 was released with this version, which mainly fixed bugs.

Two versions are available in the launcher, Alpha v1.2.2a (a debug version) and Alpha v1.2.2b (which added support for more animations as well as minor changes and fixes).



  • Support for more animation settings
  • Support for 16×16 texture packs
    • Prior to this update, users would need to manually change the texture packs by overwriting the terrain.png image in minecraft.jar files, or use a patcher.
