    First i want to thank those who have created this mod for their time. THANK YOU!!! I have been playing MC since Beta 1.5 and installing mods but lately some mods have not been working (on Mac). is there a reason why with this Mod it does not load properly on a Mac??

      We’re not sure, but will keep checking in on developers forum for updates.

        Whats did i do wrong? just got the newest forge and modloader put in my minecraft.jar, and now it crashes?.. How do i fix this?

        • modman

          @camokid96
          Which did you install first? ModLoader or Forge?
          ModLoader should be first, then test, then Forge.

          • Andy

            OK thxs man i will try that

          • Andy

            Btw do i keep my minecraft running while i am diking it or wot?

          • modman

            @Andy
            You should definitely close Minecraft when doing anything to it’s file system.

          • craverkel

            I did what you said! But… But… there is this thing that keeps appearing everytime I install Forge. And that message is “Done Upgrading” ugh… so ANNOYING

          • modman

            @craverkel
            Can you be more specific about exactly when that message appears during the Minecraft startup process?

        • modman

          @camokids96
          I would install ModLoader first, then test MC, then install Forge. If it still crashes, then you will probably need to backup your worlds, delete .minecraft folder, install fresh copy of MC 1.2.5, then install your mods in the correct order.

        • Hookr61

          T_T stupid computer language

      • yollom

        why does it assume that we have made a mod folder i can’t even download it without it going to win.rar

        • modman

          @yollom
          If you’ve followed the tutorials in the Toolkit section, it walks you through setting up a folder to download the mods into.

    • fizzerfizzer

      so when u Download it does it change you tool bar on google can someone tell me plezz

      • modman

        @fizzerfizzer
        NO! It shouldn’t do anything like that. In the top right wait for the counter to get down to 0 then it changes to “Skip Ad” – click this and it *should* give you the download. If it does anything else, then close that browser tab and try again.

    • Andy

      Same for me I have a mac os x and i am trying to upload it and it works apart from wen i try and load my single player worlds they just crash/blank my minecraft. Any one know how to fix this because i want to play on my tekkie server. Btw reply to it if u want to join my tekkie server

    • MARvinbilodeau

      how do you even install it on mac

    • Dawnflower12

      How much is Minecraft Forge? Is there anything I need to download before Minecraft Forge?
      Thanks :)

      • modman

        @Dawnflower12
        All mods are free, but you are welcome to donate to the developemt by going to the Mods Home Page (link is above) and looking for a Donate button.
        Forge is no longer dependent on any other mods.
        :)

  • lord_loss102

    I have a problem here.I want to download the portal gun mod but it says that the version of forge it requires is 3.0.1.83 or later,and the 1.2.5 minecraft version of forge is only 3.0.1.75. What do I do?

    • modman

      Thanks lord_loss102

      That was a discrepency on our part. Portal Gun does work with Forge 3.0.1.75, not sure what happened with it saying it required 3.0.1.83!!

      We’ve tested Portal Gun with Forge 3.0.1.75 and it works fine. I’ve updated the page above to reflect.

      Regardless, they have just released 3.1.2.90 on 18th April, so have tested and updated the 1.2.5 link to Forge 3.1.2.90

      Cheers

      • Zymory

        somehow… the furniture crashes my game whenever i try to use them. the only things that work are the chairs,sofas,and the toilet. It crashes whenever i left-click on the items, but otherwise right now, im just using them as decoration… please HELP!!!

        • modman

          @Zymory
          Can you please advise what other mods you have installed?
          Thanks

        • tattledomo123

          the same thing happend to me it works but it says 5 errors 😛

            @tattledomo123
            Sorry, am a bit lost in the thread… what happens to you?

    • gunslayer32

      Download an earlier version of the portal gun that is specifically for minecraft 1.2.5. As Minecraft is now past 1.3, everything from here on out (and this will apply as minecraft gets more updates) will be made for the newest version(s)
      .

  • junior_wierd

    Im sorry but why is my minecraft going black screen when i followed all the instructions (my jar is already modded do i have to start with a fresh one?). After the mojan screen loads, i go on singleplayer and clicked on my world, it was kinda loading then it turned black screen. Pleaaaaaaaaaaaase help me with my problem

    • Firestorm42046646

      just delete .minecraft and re-install a fresh one from wherever and download modloader first, forge second but ALWAYS, NO MATTER WHAT, ALWAYS HAVE A BACKUP!!!!!!

      • Bloodvane

        you can backup ur saves or ur minecraft
        i would say saves cause the rest has no data but the server ips

  • junior_wierd

    Never mind i just used a fresh jar. I LOVE YOU FREAKING LOVE YOU FOR DOING THIS.

  • VanishPlanet

    I have a PC… I searched, and searched… I found the “Working” one… I registered… I downloaded… I made sure everything was done right… And god dammit I am pissed off of have these errors. THESE ARE FRAUDS!! >:(

    • modman

      Hi VanishPlanet

      I feel your pain! But don’t give up…

      What errors are you getting and at what point of the game loading?

      Also, did you start with a fresh install of minecraft?

  • zoso

    hi, i use a mac and i wanted to know how to download forge. if theres a video you could point me to that would be much appreciated. BTW i do did download ModLoader with the help of a friend, i only need forge now for mod i want.

    Thanks ^_^

    • modman

      Hi zoso,

      As I understand, the installation of Forge on a mac is basically the same process. You use the same download file and copy the contents into the minecraft.jar which can be found in Library\Application Support\minecraft\bin\

      Please reply to let me know how you go.

  • zoso

    ok i did what this forum did
    http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/63502-mods-manually-modify-minecraftjar-mac-291010/
    and i logged on and it seems my character is invisible….and help?

  • zoso

    also, it seems mobs are invisible.

    • modman

      Wow, I’ve heard of that happening before but haven’t actually seen it myself. If the game loads and opens your world, then I suspect your problem might be a glitch. Really sorry that we can’t support macs more at the moment, I would suggest (to cover all bases) to re-install minecraft and the mods. Then if still no luck, post on their forum for help… http://www.mod-buildcraft.com/forums/forum/help/

  • zoso

    A friend of mine showed me an option above the login called “Force Update” which wipes all mods from the minecraft folder. I’m planning on readding them and I will check back here to let you guys know what happened.
    Thanks for all the help :)

  • ClearBig Tooter

    i downloaded and installed minecraft forge correctly and when i run minecraft it comes to a screen that says updateing minecraft and it shows the green progress bar but it freezes right before its done loading. This only happens with minecraft forge

  • Jonva

    I downloaded the correct version and followed all the steps and it still wont work.
    Minecraft always craches when i make a new world.
    Is there a solution to prevent it from crashing?

    • modman

      Did you try a fresh install of the latest minecraft? It should work fine as we have thoroughly tested the above links and process, but we always start with a fresh, clean install of Minecraft.

      • Jonva

        Yeah i had all of it. I figured it out at last. Seems i had a bad version of modloader because there was a file missing. Thanks anyway :)

      It seems that a lot of people have this problem.

      Please make sure you install a fresh copy of Minecraft (not a previous version that has been upgraded) and install ModLoader & Forge manually. You *should* not have any problems if you do it this way.

      Are you using an upgraded version of Minecraft? If so, then the quickest fix is to backup your worlds, delete the .minecraft folder, download and fresh install of MC, install the mods you want and restore your worlds

    when i try to start minecraft it gets almost to the end of the bar and doesnt proceed from there. HELP!!!

    • modman

      Double check that you’ve deleted META-INF from minecraft.jar
      Hanging towards the end of that progress bar normally indicates that.
      Let me know if that isn’t the problem.

      Not exactly sure what the problem is there, but quickest fix would be to do a fresh install.
      Make sure you backup your worlds, then delete your .minecraft folder, get fresh install of MC, re-install mods.
      Sorry, but most often that is the quickest easiest fix when minecraft is crashing.

      Apologies for the delay in replying
      Have you tried using a fresh install of Minecraft 1.2.5? I mean backup your worlds, delete the .minecraft folder, re-download Minecraft 1.2.5 and install, then install mods, restore worlds.

  • johnmail

    When i download it and play minecraft it is stuck on the loading screen saying “download complete”

  • 0zzy

    I’m having an odd problem where wehn I log into minecraft after installing forge, it freezes at the updating screen.
    It says it’s done loading but it doesn’t do anything, even when left for awhile. Installed modloader and it worked fine. I have no other mods installed and I have encountered this prolem twice now, so any help would be appreciated :)
    Thanks

    • modman

      @Ozzy
      Even though Forge relies on ModLoader, ModLoader and Forge actually have conflicting files. Depending on what mods you need them for, you may need to re-install ModLoader after installing Forge. However, we have found that the general rule of thumb is that you should install Forge after ModLoader (and especially after AudioMod) to stop Minecraft from crashing. That’s interesting that re-installing ModLoader after Forge fixed it for you.
      Thanks for that feedback!

  • whiteguardian1

    i log in then it goes onto the mojang screen, then goes onto the dirt background then black screen… i followed all the instructions, im just trying to get other mods to work with my current one, help :/

      Have you tried a fresh install of Minecraft 1.2.5?… back up your worlds, delete .minecraft folder, install fresh MC 1.2.5, install ModLoader, test, install Forge, test.
      Let me know if that doesn’t fix it for you :)

      WinRar is fine to use. We use 7zip because we like it better.

  • epicmcfarmer

    Multiple times I have tried installing modloader (in which I would always test it and it would always work) and then afterwards when I try to install forge I start Minecraft and it is stuck at the screen that says “done loading”.I have tried using a fresh copy of Minecraft but that didn’t work. I even tried tried doing what Ozzy did and reinstalled modloader after I installed forge. It still didn’t work. I always delete Meta-INF, and like I said before, I’ve used a fresh copy of Minecraft. Please help me. Thank you. I’m using 1.2.5 by the way, and I’m downloading forge from the link in “download and installation”.

    • modman

      @epicmcfarmer
      When you did a fresh install, did you first delete your .minecraft folder?

    • Porky

      ITS THE SAME THING WITH ME! ive done it at least 7 times within this WEEK. if you guys could find a soulution i would BE EVER GREATFUL

  • epicmcfarmer

    @modman Yes I did. I went to my app data and deleted the .minecraft folder and then downloaded a fresh copy from the Minecraft website.

  • modman

    @epicmcfarmer
    that’s really strange! Normally if it hangs at “Done Loading” then it indicates that META-INF hasn’t been deleted, but if you’re sure it has, then it must be something else.
    Any chance you can screen capture the process starting from deleting .minecraft through to installing Forge and posting it on YouTube so I can see if I can see what’s gone wrong?

    @modman Well there have been a few things I’ve noticed. First of all the files in the forge folder I’ve downloaded look very different from the ones in the in the tutorial above. The class files it contains are more numerous than the ones in the tutorial images above, are labeled differently, and there are four folders instead of the two that the tutorial displays it as having. The forge folder also contains several notepad documents and “readmes”. One more thing is that I only have a 32 java installation instead of a 64 bit. Can this possibly cause certain mods to not work?

  • Porky

    Okay, Sadly i have a cracked version of The Best Game In The World. but even then i still play often and everytime i try to download “Forge” it gets stuck at the mandatory updating screen. Help???
    :)

    • modman

      @Porky
      Not sure if the fact that you’re running a cracked version is causing any issues, but when that happens to people (assuming you’ve definitely deleted META-INF) we recommend to back your worlds, delete your .minecraft folder and re-install a fresh copy of MC. But not sure how possible that is for you???

      • Porky

        I’ ve continuosley redownloaded my .jar and it still wont work. i do have a 32 bit java, is that the problem???

        • modman

          @Porky
          Can you explain further what you mean by redownloading your .jar?
          32 bit Java is not the problem.

          • Porky

            i delete the .minecraft folder, and then i go through the downloading updates screen to get the folder back with a fresh .jar

          • modman

            @Porky
            hmm… sounds like you definitely doing the fresh install process correctly.
            If you’ve definitely deleted META-INF also, then I’m a bit stumped. *Might* have something to do with cracked version of MC, I can’t test that though cause we only use paid versions. Any chance you can fork out the cash to buy MC?

  • modman

    @epicmcfarmer
    Yes the forge installation files have changed since we did the video. Just copy all of them into minecraft.jar – no need to do the readmes if you don’t want (I usually don’t).
    32bit is not a problem at all.
    I’m going to do another review and possible video of this problem and see if I can replicate the error at Done Loading.

    • Porky

      cant really use the money to buy it, otherwise i would have it, but times are tough.

  • 0zzy

    I’m still having problems with this thing, I started with a clean copy and followed all the instructions. My game works with modloader, but as soon as I instal forge I freeze up on the loading screen, I’m unclear what it is I’m doing wrong or why it keeps doing it.
    I’ve installed mods in the past such as clay soldiers, minimap, bacteria mod and a Uranium mod all of which didn’t require forge only modloader and never had a problem. It is only with the introduction of forge it all dies on me.
    I’ve tried a clean copy as I said before and installing only the core mods. Is there anywhere that I could download a premodded, working JAR file with modloader and Forge already installed? Cos I’m getting no where.
    The ultimate aim was to instal the ship builder mod, but until I get over this hurdle, it aint happening
    Thanks

  • Hein

    Modman:

    I installed a fresh copy of Minecraft 1.2.5 and dragged over Modloader and Minecraft Forge 3.3.7.135-Client and Delete the Meta-Inf folder. Then when I start Minecraft it stops at Updating Minecraft Done Loading Screen! Can you please please help me??? All that I want to do is build a ship with boats and ships Mod.

    Please Help?
    Modman

    • modman

      @Hein
      Did you delete your existing MC installation before installing fresh copy? If not, you’ll need to do that as your Minecraft has probably been upgraded from a previous version.

  • Hein

    Modman:

    I uninstall minecraft and then delete the .minecraft folder with its remaining files. Then I install minecraft beta 1.8.1 and replace the minecraft.jar(beta 1.8.1) with miinecraft.jar(1.2.5).
    I don’t have internet, I download things from my Blackberry, I can’t really force update my minecraft.
    But I have a backup of minecraft 1.2.5 with many files.

    Please Help?

    • modman

      @Hein
      If you’re using a 1.8.1 install with some of the files replaced then I would be pretty confident in saying that’s where the problem is. What we know is that Forge has a problem with most upgraded versions of Minecraft, we also know that a truly clean install of 1.2.5, where the MC software downloads the files it needs, with the latest ModLoader and the latest Forge, works.
      I would recommend to do what you have to to do that fresh complete proper install of 1.2.5, then make a backup of it before you start installing mods.

    Sorry about that…
    So I have to delete everything but the minecraft.exe and force update from the login screen?
    Will forge work then?

  • eliasandaloussi

    hello where is the download :P?

    • modman

      @eliasandaloussi
      Click on the “Download & Installation” tab above then look for the Download Minecraft Forge section

  • Hein

    Modman:

    Thanks man!
    The minecraft forge works now… I used my mother’s Vodacom Modem and force updated minecraft.
    Now it works like a dream and I can boat and ship mod.
    Thanks thanks thanks X 1 000 000!!!
    Your Website is awesom, thanks again!!!

    • modman

      Sensational! Great to hear…. thanks for letting us know.

  • davepewol

    i have minecraft 1.2.5 and got modloadermp, if i install the mod even if i have modloadermp will it have some problems? Please reply quickly, ty

    • modman

      @davepewol
      Well, ModLoaderMP & Forge conflict with one file “adl.class” and you *shouldn’t* have problems, but that’s not a definite.
      What are the mods that you need both of them for?

  • Darkdragon19

    if i use winRaR wat do i click instead?

    • modman

      @Darkdragon19
      Is WinRAR listed in the menu when you right-click on the .jar file?

  • kxdjfu

    Okay, I’m a long time modder, been since 1.8.1, and I got a few on 1.2.5:
    Elemental Arrows, Swords +, Secret Rooms, Mo Creatures, Recipe Book, TMI, Xray, Airship and Steamboat, FM Debug, More World Types and Biosphere, as well as the core mods GUI-API, AudioMod, Modloader, and CustomMobSpawner.

    Even if I start off with a fresh jar, when I install Modloader and Forge (only them), it freezes at the loading screen before the “Mojang” screen with an almost full bar.

    Help? Just wanted to play stuph like Thaumcraft 2 and AssassinCraft :'(

    • modman

      @kxdjfu
      When you say a fresh jar, I’m assuming you don’t mean a complete re-install. The error your getting is common of an upgraded version of MC 1.2.5
      You’ll need to backup your worlds, texture packs etc. then delete the .minecraft folder and re-install Minecraft as though you’ve never had it on your system before.

  • liampaul9

    IT DOESNT WROK IT GIVES ME ERROR MESSAGE AFTER FRESH MINECRAFT !

    • modman

      @liampaul9
      Can you give more information…
      Did you delete .minecraft folder before fresh install?
      When does the error message appear?
      Do you have ModLoader installed?
      Did you delete META-INF?

  • urielo

    I have to thank you so much for this guide since I have never been able to get my mods working from any other guide, but yours was so informative and had all the needed tools right on the page that I had my mods working within 15 mins! Thank you for all the work you put into this site and for helping out us people who have struggled with mods for quite some time! If I have any questions or if some of my friends need help with mods I’ll definitly direct them here!

    • modman

      @urielo
      Your most welcome. Thank you for the feedback!

  • Assassin83

    I did the equivalent of this installation for mac, and the game can run with forge, but the sound is disabled. When I try and change the sound bar slider, the game freezes and crashes. Any ideas?

    I used a clean 1.2.5 minecraft.jar and only installed MCForge.

    • modman

      @Assassin83
      Pretty unfamiliar still with Minecraft on Macs, but I do know that people have installed it successfully. However I don’t know if anyone has had success with the latest release (v3.3.8.152) of Forge.
      Just curious, was your MC 1.2.5 upgraded from a previous version or was it a clean install of 1.2.5?

  • jackmorris

    Hey i want to install it through mcpatcher can you help me and this is for my tekkit server can you please help me????!!!

    • modman

      @jackmorris
      Sorry bud, we’re not supporting server installs yet. I would check the minecraftforge.net forum for help on that one.

  • lilxwaffle

    hey,when i try to install the latest one on magic launcher it says not compatible and my minecraft version is 1.2.5 what do i do?

    • modman

      @lilxwaffle
      Perhaps let the Magic Launcher people know, there’s nothing we can do about it here. Alternatively, maybe just install Forge manually, then use ML for other mods???

  • bgraves

    is there the link anywhere to the server version?

    • modman

      @bgraves
      Not on this site, if you click the link above to the mods Forum Page, there may be a link to server version there.

  • Anadelonbrin

    Looking for some advice on this. I’ve been using Mcpatcher (which you don’t seem to have on here) since I started Minecraft with no problem. Tried swapping to Optifine (also, doesn’t appear to be a mod you support here) and had some graphical issues so went back. The server I’m on now has BuildCraft and IndustrialCraft2 so I have installed Forge to get it to work (already had Modloader from before anyway). It appears to continually crash with Mcpatcher running and a conflict between Forge and Mcpatcher. Not sure if this is anything you can comment or recommend given you do not appear to be supporting Mcpatcher. Unless you can recommend a different HD graphical mod other than Mcpatcher or Optifine?

    I seem to be able to load the game fine, but as soon as I enter the world, that’s when the game client crashes with the conflict with Forge. Given it appears to work without Mcpatcher, but would prefer to run with HD graphics since my computer can support that. Any help or recommendations would be appreciated.

    • modman

      @Anadelonbrin
      Yes you’re right, we don’t use or support MC Patcher. We have started looking into Optifine, but still need to do confliction testing on it.
      I would definitely try a fresh install as described above on the Troubleshooting tab and do it manually (without MC Patcher), it’s surprising how many strange errors it fixes.

  • 1narutomaster

    it conflicts with modloader? will my mods that require modloader work with just forge or what?

    • modman

      @1narutomaster
      Yeah, crazy but true. As long as you install Forge after ModLoader, your Minecraft will work fine and any mods that require ModLoader will also work fine.

  • Natas

    Hey there.
    I’ve got a problem with Forge too:
    When I install it and run Minecraft, I get a blackscreen, no Error-Message, no Mojang-Picture, just a black screen. I’ve already deleted the .minecraft-Folder and downloaded it again, but I still have a blackscreen.
    Why?
    Greetz, Natas

    • modman

      @Natas
      Does this only happen after you install Forge?

  • lukes727

    Hi, i’ve installed a fresh 1.2.5, installed modloader and deleted Met-inf it works, install forge and it freezes right near the end of the loading bar, any help ?

    • modman

      @lukes727
      Did you definitely delete the .minecraft folder before installing? If so, then I would recommend to create a new Windows profile, login to it, install Minecraft, install ModLoader, install Forge, double check it works fine, then copy the .minecraft folder back to your normal Windows profile.

  • Natas

    @modman
    Yes, it only happens if I install Forge.

  • Natas

    I have to add something:
    I am working with Ubuntu/Linux.
    Maybe that’s important.

    • modman

      @Natas
      Yes, it may be something to do with Linux. We haven’t seen that particular type of problem in Windows so am guessing it is something to do with the way it is installed on Linux. I would suggest to click the link above to go to the Forge website and look for help on there as we don’t have the capability here currently to support Linux. Sorry about that.

  • lukes727

    Yes i defo deleted the .minecrafts folder from the %appdata%, and iv tried to do it on two diffferent machines one running vista and one running windows 7

    • modman

      @lukes727
      Then try creating a new Windows profile, install Minecraft, install Forge. It should work, if so, then copy the installation back to your normal Windows profile.

  • lukes727

    I’ve just tried that and still crashed near the end of the bar

    • modman

      @lukes727
      Are you able to do a screen capture video of the steps you’re taking and share with me? There must be something going wrong somewhere.

  • AL8INOCARE8EAR

    alright so i installed the mod correctly i know but now my sound has gone off, every time i change it the game crashes, if someone who knows how to fix this could tell me that would be great, thanks

    • modman

      @AL8INOCARE8EAR
      Yes have seen this before, not exactly sure what causes it, but *should* be fixed by a clean install as described in the troubleshooting section above. Please let me know if this doesn’t fix it. Thanks.

      • Anadelonbrin

        I’ve done the fresh install about 10 times now, and tried various steps and orders of installing. Generally I run McPatcher first (if using it) and the ModLoader, Forge and lastly Optifine (if I’m using it). I’ve had no problems with the proper mods (i.e. Buildcraft and IC2) but Forge and Mcpatcher do not seem to want to work.

        Also the problem mentioned above with the black screen (doesn’t crash), I’ve had that happen on probably 50% of my failed installation attempts. Seems to happen only slightly less often than the full on crash.

        • modman

          @Anadelonbrin
          Was happens if you do a fresh install, manually install Forge, then test (without using MCPatcher at all)?

  • GamerEternally

    I can’t find a 7-zip jar. Help me plz!

    • modman

      @GamerEternally
      Not sure exactly what you mean by “can’t find a 7-zip jar”
      7-Zip is an archiving program used to open .zip and .jar files like the forge mod and the minecraft.jar file.
      Does that make sense? Please follow the General Mod Management tutorial to help you get setup properly for modding minecraft.

  • lionblaze

    I have a question. Is this mod compatible with optifine? I ask this because I installed the recommended version which worked but when I installed optifine some items in my game were invisible such as most cd’s and armor! Does anyone know the answer to this problem?

    • modman

      @lionblaze
      Sounds like you’ve lost the image files for those items. We’re still analysing optifine and have experienced similar issues. So at the moment we can’t answer your question properly, in the meantime I would sugget to check the optifine forum/website for answers.

  • Kernaledchips

    Mine installs fine but it removes all game sound (music etc.) what should i do to fix this problem?
    ps: Im on a MAC

    • modman

      @Kernaledchips
      What other mods do you have installed?

      • Kernaledchips

        none, this is with a clean minecraft file

        • modman

          @Kernaledchips
          Oh, that’s right, I remember now. You’re probably using the native program for opening zips, which is where the problem lies. Have a look inside the minecraft.jar/paulscode folder, it’s probably only got the file from the Forge mod. You’ll need to do a fresh install of minecraft, then find another archive program to use that will actually merge the files instead of overwriting them. Hopefully that makes sense, let me know if not.

          • Kernaledchips

            @modman
            Thank you so much! it worked! i looked through the .jar file and just merged the forge ‘paulscode’ files with the minecraft file (ILY!) hehe

  • Darkktana101

    for different servers when i already have mc forge installed the server says i dont have it installed

      Yep, other people have reported this problem also. Although people seem reluctant to advise the address of the server, without that we can’t test and figure out whats wrong. If you can tell us the address of one of the servers you’re having trouble with, we’ll do some testing. If you prefer not to post it here, then please PM it to us on YouTube.

      Yes definitely. Most archiving programs will work.

  • luckyluc009

    Hey! I’ve done everything properly with Forge, moved the whole archive into the minecraft.jar file, and the first time I did it it didn’t work. I logged on, and it just gets stuck on the loading screen saying “Updating Minecraft” with “Done loading” underneath it. So, I reinstalled Minecraft forgetting (I’m using a computer I don’t play on often) I had installed a snapshot. It do everything properly again, and it still doesn’t work. Gets stuck on the screen “Updating Minecraft” with “Done loading” beneath it. I downloaded Forge 3.3.8.164, because I’m trying to play the Portal Map.

    • luckyluc009

      xD I have failed myself. In the new download, I realized I forgot to delete the Meta-Inf.

  • Insert Name Here

    i’ve followed everything exactly as instructed. i deleted META-INF but it still freezes on the update thing as if i still had META-INF despite having already deleted it. how do i fix this problem?

      Did you try following the steps in the Troubleshooting section above?

        • modman

          @Insert Name Here
          OK, then I would suggest creating a new profile on the computer, login to it, install minecraft, install forge, test. If it works, then copy this installation over to your normal profile.

  • reison

    I’m having the same issue as Insert Name Here. I’ve done clean installs left and right, gone through every troubleshooting step. ModLoader fails on its’ own, and Forge fails on its’ own. I’ve verified META-INF’s absence in both steps. I’m wondering if it’s because of Mountain Lion? It would seem strange, but it could be.

    • modman

      @reison
      OK, then I would suggest creating a new profile on the computer, login to it, install minecraft, install forge, test. If it works, then copy this installation over to your normal profile.

    um can I do this with winrar?
    O_o

    • modman

      Yes definitely, same process except that there should be a WinRar menu item when you click on the download.

  • Insert Name Here

    ik this sounds strange, but does any of you think it’s because i use a cracked copy instead of a legal copy? nbtw, i’m working on buying a legal copy asap so i don’t need the shitty crack i’m currently using

    • modman

      @kevin4998

      My guess is that one of the other mods you have installed has file conflictions with Forge. So I would install Forge v3.3.8.152, then re-install any of the other mods you have installed that require putting files into minecraft.jar

      Does that make sense?

  • Sergio1112

    Is the latest forge compatible with 1.3.1??

    • modman

      @Sergio1112
      No, not yet. Still waiting on the Forge crew to update the mod. There’s lots to be done to make it compatible with 1.3.1 and they’re working hard on it. We’ll update here within hours of the new Forge release coming out, so stay tuned.

      The problem might be that your Minecraft 1.2.5 was updated from an earlier version instead of a clean install. Check the troubleshooting tab above, however if you don’t already have a clean install backed up then that solution won’t work for you. You may need to upgrade to 1.3.2 in order to get Minecraft working again, which sucks cause there’s not many mods ready for 1.3.2 – Forge has a version out for it, but it will most likely be weeks before the mods that rely on it are updated.

  • mbish1993

    The Minecraft Forge client v3.3.7.135 (For 1.2.5) doesnt work with optifine C7. when you load a saved game it will get stuck on saving chunks.

    • modman

      @mbish1993
      Did you try with Forge 3.4.9.171? (link is above) Did you install Optifine after Forge?

  • boggle9999

  • BlackGandalf

    I don’t know if i’m just stupid, but when I open single-player the screen goes blank (except for the dirt background) and then it crashes.

    • modman

      @BlackGandalf
      You’re not stupid, Forge can be a bit of a bugger to install sometimes.
      A couple of questions…
      What version of Minecraft are you running?
      What other mods do you have installed?

      • BlackGandalf

        1.3.2
        and no other mods installed right now

        • modman

          @BlackGandalf
          OK, am guessing that your Minecraft 1.3.2 was upgraded from a previous version? If so, then I would suggest to backup your worlds, delete your .minecraft folder from %appdata% then download a fresh version of Minecraft and re-install Forge then restore your worlds.

  • Arctic_sniper

    The Forge mod usually crashes my game when I put the mc patcher thing in for hd texture packs

    • modman

      @Arctic_sniper
      Are you installing Forge first, then testing Minecraft, then installing the HD textures?

  • icedragon98

    Wow, this is the first forge that worked! Thanks! 😀

  • Rufus

    Hey whatever i try it always gives me black screen! I do delete META – INF so do’nt say i’m a n00b!
    I have done exactly what you say and IT GIVES ME BLACK SCREEN I HAVE BEEN TRYING FOR THREE DAYS!!!!!!!!!

    • modman

      @Rufus
      What other mods do you have installed?

  • Osci16

    Hey,

    So I have 1.32, I’ve installed ModLoader and ModLoaderMP and it works fine with those, but once I install Forge 4.1.1, it crashes while trying to update.

    I’ve 100% deleted META-INF and am using a fresh installation of 1.32.

    I’ve uploaded the error reports from client-0.log here:

    http://notepad.cc/minecraftcrash

    I’m trying to get this working for my nephew, it’s breaking his heart that I can’t get it right! Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

    • modman

      @Osci16
      Howdy, sorry for delayed reply!
      What mod do you need to install after Forge? The reason I ask is because you shouldn’t need ModLoader or ModLoaderMP. Just install Forge, then whatever other mods you want to use.
      Let me know how you go.

  • Osci16

    @modman
    Thanks for the reply, I can’t find the page I was following for instructions, but it was for SDK Gun Mod. The instructions were:

    – Install ModLoader
    – Install ModLoader MP
    – Install Forge

    then went on with more instructions which I didn’t get around to since forge install kept crashing.

  • modman

    @Osci16
    OK, I would do a fresh install of Minecraft 1.3.2 again, then just install Forge, don’t worry about the other two. Then see if Minecraft will run. Part of the error message you posted said a download error occured, so make sure your internet connection is working. Assuming this work, then try SDK Gun Mod. If it then crashes, install ModLoader, ModLoaderMP, then Forge again.

  • misterschmoo

    Ok I’m having the same trouble I had when I tried to load the Fossil mod, I install Modloader, fine, I install ModloaderMP, fine, when I install Forge the first time I run it it does it’s install thing then halfway through it says “There was a fatal error starting up minecraft and FML” then it points me to a log file.
    And this is with a fresh minecraft.exe and a fresh install, I have no idea what is wrong.

  • Izual Zephyr

    Forge seems to conflict with modloader on the 1.3.2 version.

  • Izual Zephyr

    Oh, wait a minute… the game doesn’t start even if I install forge by itself, I am really doing something wrong over here…

    Bad video card drivers!

    Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
    This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

    Sorry for delayed reply.
    Unsure of why this is happening. Was your Minecraft a fresh installation of 1.3.2 or upgraded from a previous version? If it was upgraded, check the troubleshooting tab above and do a fresh install to see if that fixes it.

    • modman

      @FinalFantasyFan6
      My guess is that Forge is conflicting with one of the other mods you have installed. Might need to do a re-install of Minecraft, then install Forge, then any other mods. Check the Troubleshooting tab above for specific instructions on re-installing minecraft. Please let me know if this doesn’t fix it.

    • modman

      If you have a look through that error log, there’s quite a few errors that refer to downloading issues. So I would make sure your Internet is working properly and try again. How long did it take when it was trying to download the FML files? It should only take 5-10 seconds at most.

      • Rafaela2222

        It did take about 5 seconds, then told me to check ForgeModLoader-client-0 for the error log. No, I’m not having any internet problems, and I’ve tried re-installing it. I just installed forge on my friend’s computer, but when I try it on mine, this happens.

  • modman

    @Rafaela2222
    Was your friends computer on the same internet connection as your?
    I definitely suspect something is going on with the internet connectivity on your computer.
    At worst, I would get it working properly on your friends computer, then grab a copy of the .minecraft folder fromhis and putit on yours.

  • Rafaela2222

    No, we’re on different internet connections, so I guess that could be it. I’ll see if I can get a copy of his .minecraft folder, that would probably work.

  • 198772 xd

    Is forge updated for minecraft 1.4.2? If not about when will it be updated? thank you

    • modman

      @198772 xd
      Hey bud, apologies for the delay in replying!
      Yes, 1.4.2 is out, but I’d kinda recommend to go to 1.4.4 if you haven’t already, it has lots of bug fixes. They already have pre-release versions of Forge for 1.4.5, so as soon as Minecraft 1.4.5 is out, it should only be a couple days til Forge has their version out.

  • Vastrix

    Here is a link for the latest fore releases

  • stevo501

    ive seen that alot of people have problems with this. my problem is that as soon as i load minecraft it goes to mojang screen then goes black. i installed modloader then forge didnt work. i then got new fresh minecraft installed same as tutorial still didnt work. ppllllzzz help

    • modman

      @stevo501
      Hey mate, you need to install Forge AFTER ModLoader, then it should work fine.

  • Izual Zephyr

    On 1.4.5, If I install forge as the only mod, the game still gets a black screen after the mojang screen.

  • modman

    @Izual Zephyr
    Did you delete META-INF? If so, that is probably the problem. With Forge for Minecraft 1.4.x, you no longer need to delete it.
    Let me know if that doesn’t fix it.
    Cheers

  • Izual Zephyr

    It keeps getting stuck at “done loading”

  • modman

    @Izual Zephyr
    What version of Minecraft are you runing?

  • Izual Zephyr

    1.4.5, and forge is the only mod I have installed right now.

  • modman

    @Izual Zephyr
    Is it a fresh install of 1.4.5? or was it upgraded from a previous version?
    If it was upgraded, then make a backup of your .minecraft folder, delete the original and install a fresh copy of minecraft then try forge.

  • Izual Zephyr

    It’s a fresh one, I don’t like upgrading because it’s too much of a drag to update all the mods.
    It feels easier just starting from scratch.

  • modman

    @Izual Zephyr
    OK good. Did you definitely delete the .minecraft folder before installing fresh?

  • Izual Zephyr

    I deleted everything in it, but not the folder itself, I don’t think it makes a difference.

  • modman

    @Izual Zephyr
    Really Strange! What I would do if I were you is just to try again. You’re right deleting the folder probably won’t make a difference, but won’t hurt to do it anyway. After installing Minecraft, make sure you don’t delete META-INF before or after installing Forge.
    If that still doesn’t work, I would create a new profile in windows, install MC and Forge in that, it *should* work then copy the .minecraft folder back to your normal profile.

  • 2012

    should i delete the META-INF that comes with forge because the video says to delete,so can u plz update the video

    2012
    ——-x

    • modman

      @2012
      Hi, yes we are in the process of updating the Forge video. You should follow the instructions on the site which get you to delete META-INF from minecraft.jar BEFORE dragging in the Forge files. There is now a META-INF folder in Forge which is required and should not be deleted. Hope that makes sense!
      :)

  • 2012

    thanks a lot

  • 2012

    it says fml is setting the things needed before to play after that. black screen
    plz help

    • bob2328nick

      you need to wait a little bit it only takes about 30-60 secs but its just loading with the black screen
      also if it takes really long like 2-3 min make sure you deleted meta-inf in minecraft.jar

  • wrockies

    OK, so i run minecraft 1.4.7, i downloaded the right version and everything, following the instructions carefully, also i have done this before and it worked fine! HELP?

    • modman

      @wrockies
      What happens? Are you getting an error message?

  • wrockies

    No, my minecraft would still work, its just that it wasnt affected, but i think i know the problem, thanks anyway

  • Beckumz

    It wont do anything. I took all the steps and did all the troubleshooting things….. It just didnt do anything.

    • modman

      @Beckumz
      Can you please confirm if you are you running MC v1.5.2?
      Also, what version of Windows are you running?
      Does Minecraft run and can you open a world?
