Hey guys,
Which do you think is better, MCPatcher or Magic Launcher? Which should I use? I'm not a fan of mods but I do want to use HD texture packs.

Um....you can't really compare them as they both have different uses and features. It's not like comparing a red shirt with a blue shirt but a black jacket with a green vest. Magic launcher is used for making installing/uninstalling of mods easier while Mcpatcher patches your Minecraft so that it may run HD texture packs. :)

Doesn't MCPatcher patch mods in as well?

I haven't used MCPatcher, so I can't really compare the two. But I can say that I have used, and still do use, Magic Launcher, adn find it a very valuable add-on. Not only does it allow you to load patches and set up multiple profiles to run Minecraft differently (not just different versions, but different profiles with the same version but different patches), it has a nice login screen that gives you a lot of information from various web sites.

Well I prefer magic launcher. Magic Launcher is formatted in a way to both install mods without winRar or anything and just play the game. In McPatcher, you need to open up the jar, choose the files you need to put in, click patch, and then open minecraft.

i suggest you use magic launcher and install optifine with it because optifine speeds up your minecraft game and lets you use hd texture packs magic launcher is also very easy to use when installing other mods

I'd recommend using MultiMC instead of either of them. It's much easier to use, allows for easy multiple instances of minecraft with their own individual mod setups and supports forge coremods. And I'd also recommend using Optifine for HD textures and it will help with frames per second.

I neither use both I like to install my mods manually plus I use optifine rather than MCpatcher because it does a lot of things more
Any questions/problems? Drop me a PM! I'll be glad to help!

MCpatcher cannot install folders, which are necessary for a lot of worlds. I just like doing my modding manually.

I actually use MultiMC for making multiple instances of minecraft, I use mcPatcher for HD texture packs. Haven't been able to figure out Optifine yet though... which would be good.

I'd say Magic Launcher, because it's really easy to switch around
.jar
files without having to do much work. So, you can have different configurations for different types of mods, and go to previous versions of Minecraft super-easily.
Then, put OptiFine into a Magic Launcher configuration, with the click of a button, and not only do you get HD texture pack support, but other good features!
However, I've never used MCPatcher, nor do I know what it really does, so I can't really compare.

I could never understand MCpatch and Magic Launcher.
They too complicated if your a newb like me.
I'd much rather use MultiMC.
It supports downgrading and installing mods is just clicking on edit mods, and click add, and just click the file.
It that easy, and you can have more than 1 .minecaft files.
