How to DOWNLOAD SKLauncher 3.0 for Minecraft on your PC and Mac (2021)

Step by step tutorial to download SKLauncher to play Minecraft on your computer

The SKLaunchner for Minecraft is a simple but very useful launcher available in several languages with the ability to change as many skins as layers in a very simple way.

It allows you to login with a premium Minecraft account and also without an account. To use it and make it work at its best we suggest creating an account at the official website.

We can also change Minecraft version, game settings, such as the directory where the launcher is located, screen resolution, JAVA location and the amount of RAM assigned.

Among all the best launchers for Minecraft NOT Premium, this launcher deserves its place.

Let’s see in this full tutorial how to download and install the desired SKLauncher in your computer.

¡Attention!
To install any launcher and play Minecraft you need to have JAVA installed on your PC or Mac. You can download it from here

How to Download SKLauncher 3.0 for PC

Downloading the SKLauncher for PC is very simple, we enter the official website, click on the left button of the image (.exe) and wait for the download of the file SKlancher-3.0-beta-16.exe

I recommend you to have JAVA installed and save the file in a safe place for the next time you enter to play Minecraft. It doesn’t matter the location of the .exe, but every time you want to play you have to double click on SKlancher-3.0-beta-16.exe

How to Download SKLauncher 3.0 for MAC

To download SKLauncher on Mac we must go to this official link and look for the download button .JAR that corresponds to Mac or Linux.

Remember that we will download the SKLauncher version 3.0.

It is possible that our Mac indicates that the file may damage our computer, but that is not a problem, as it is a typical warning with any external system file.

We click the “Save” button.

At this time you will download the file SKlauncher 3-beta.16.jar

When you click on the file to install, we will see this warning on Mac. What it tells us is that you can not open it because it is not an identified developer, basically means that as it is not an application downloaded from Apple Store, you can not open it.

But what we have to do is: click “OK” and then go to the “System Preferences” panel.

SKLauncher cannot be opened because it comes from an unidentified developer SKmedix.PL

In the “General” configuration we will see below a legend that says: “The use of SKLauncher-3-beta.16.jar was blocked because it comes from an unidentified developer” and to the right a button that says “Open anyway”. We click that button without any problem.

At this time another warning sign will appear, asking if we are sure we want to open the application. We accept “Open” without fear and at that moment we’ll be ready, finally opening the Launcher to play Minecraft.

Warning for OS X users

As an OS X user, you can use the Linux version (jar) of the Launcher if your system already has Java installed, but if your version is not compatible with the current version of the Launcher, try using Liberica Full JDK 8 .

In the future, the launcher will download the required Java automatically, as we plan to build our own native launcher.

Login to SKLauncher again

To enter the launcher again after it has closed, simply double-click on the file SKLauncher-3-beta.16.jar. It is convenient to save this file in a safe folder so as not to lose it, we can move it without problems, it does not affect the start of the file.

How to increase RAM memory

A very interesting function is to increase the RAM memory consumed by the launcher, so we can give more power to the game very easily. I explain below how to increase the RAM memory in SKLauncher:

First we enter the launcher, and we will click on the 3 points of the menu that offers the profile on the right, let’s see.

Then we click on the option “Edit profile” and enter to configure the memory.

We choose the amount required to run the game according to our ideal configuration. Then we save changes and re-enter the launcher.

Modify JVM parameters

It also allows to modify JVM parameters in a very simple way in the same configuration section.

How to put a SKIN in SKLauncher

Now let’s see how to put a SKIN with SKLauncher so that our character looks different as many times as we want.

The first thing we have to do is search the internet for a skin we like and download the .png file

I chose this skin from https://www.minecraftskins.com/

Ready, automatically our player already has a new skin.

Skin¡IMPORTANT!

For the change of skin to take effect we must close the SKLauncher and start over, this way our new skin will be ready. If it does not apply, what we can do is go back to the website, and in the “Customization” section save the changes again.

See how my new Skin looks like!

How to put a Layer in SKLauncher

Now let’s put a layer on SKLauncher to make our character look much better. It’s very simple, the steps are very similar to placing a skin.

First we get a layer, I downloaded it from this site: https://www.minecraftcapes.com/

We get a .png file that we have to upload to our profile on SKLauncher’s official site.

Then, we have to enter the profile of SKLauncher’s official website in the Customization section: https://skmedix.pl/sklauncher/customization and upload our downloaded file.

¡IMPORTANT!

For the platform to accept the layer it has to have a minimum width of 64px.

We save the changes and exit the Launcher to re-enter and have the changes applied.

Let’s see how my new layer looks like:

Change the color of the theme

It has an option to change the color of the theme, we can choose a light theme with predominant white or dark theme with black background, and we can also change the color of the buttons and graphic accents. See how my settings look:
