[Forge / MCP] Update Thread

  1. As of now, forge team is closing in on finishing the minecraft forge installer pack.
    -You can track their progress here: (swooosh)

    If you are unaware - the lead programmer for the Minecraft Coder Pack (the ones that work on minecraft codec packs) that help fml and forge and mcp make Minecraft mods work - Searge ... now has been working for Mojang for the past month.

    He posted a progress update few weeks ago - you can check that out here: {Sweaaash}


    Update: Forge has been out since December 26th - I forgot to update about that...

    It is still in beta - but it is out .... Here

    Download Minecraft and run 1.7.2 (I assume we all did that step)
    Download from the link above - the 1.7.2 installer ... and run the .jar

    *If you are like me and can't run .jars successfully - here I wrote this for you

    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -jar forge-1.7.2-

    cd "$( dirname "$0" )"
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -jar forge-1.7.2-

    BINDIR=$(dirname "$(readlink -fn "$0")")
    cd "$BINDIR"
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1024M -jar forge-1.7.2-

    Change Java version, and java location accordingly (I haven't tried linux or mac - but it should work) ...

    Put that text in a notepad and save the notepad as Run1.7.2.bat

    I don't know what file type you save it as for Linux or Mac (Windows are batch or command files)

    After it loads up select Install Client - and hit okay ... and just wait for it to finish
    After it finishes - go to your profile and select forge - or manually look for 1.7.2forge folder in versions folder either one and run that .jar

    As of now optifine and forge are both compatibly working for me - but inventory tweaks and a few other 1.6.4 mods won't work.
  2. I hate Forge... But the 8yo loves every mod that requires it. :) So I'll get this when it's out.
  3. Why do you hate forge? Forge is the best option for mods.

    Anyways, does the fact that he works for Mojang now mean that their modding API will be coming soon?
  4. Updated OP :D
