      Description

      Some time ago mojang switched from S3 to their own distribution network.

      Unfortunatley that means that all the people who are stuck with the 1.6.93 launcher can't play newer versions of Minecraft anymore.

      This includes atm all players on macOS which use the Twitch Client, which requires a manual update to 1.6.93 as they still use 1.6.91.

      Error from logs as expected:

      [10:14:18 ERROR]: Couldn't download resources

      Any chance to get a fixed version of the launcher?
