Need help installing Rei's minimap for 1.6.2

Discussion in 'General Minecraft Discussion' started by Math_ap_Mathonwy, Aug 7, 2013.

  1. I am new to installing mods and have tried to follow the various videos for installing Rei's minimap but none have worked. I have Minecraft launcerh 1.2.1.
    I have wound up with four other things somehow: Optifine_1.6.2_HD_U_BY, Minecraft Coder Pack 8.04, Forge Mod Loader, and Minecraft Forge I don't know where half of those even came from. They all say, "0 daughter mods" and Rei's minimap is not working.
    Should I start all over again with re-downloading Minecraft??
  2. Put the mod in the mods folder, and then get Forge or Modloader.
  3. Rei's doesn't go in Mods folder, directly into the jar.

    And use this method to install Forge and Optifine, you can then install any other mods after, including rei's.
    B. Not so easy
    (not working for Forge #780 and #781)
    - Use the official launcher to download and start once Minecraft 1.6.2.
    - Use the Forge installer to install Forge
    - Go to the minecraft base folder (the official launchers shows it when you click "Edit Profile" as "Game Directory")
    - Go in subfolder "Versions"
    - Go in subfolder "Forge9.10.X.Y"
    - Copy the files from the OptiFine ZIP file to "Forge9.10.X.Y.jar" as usual (you can use the 1.5.2 instructions for this) and remove the META-INF folder from "Forge9.10.X.Y.jar".
    - Start the official launcher
    - Select profile "Forge"
    - Click "Edit Profile"
    - Select the checkbox "JVM Arguments" and in the field next to it add
    "-Dfml.ignoreInvalidMinecraftCertificates=true -Dfml.ignorePatchDiscrepancies=true"
    - Click "Save Profile"
    - Click "Play" or "Login" to start the game. If only "Play Offline" is available, then log out and log in again to fix it.
  4. As I said, I already have Forge and Optifine - it is Rei's minmap that I am still having trouble with.
  5. And the game runs with just Forge and Optifine?
  6. Yes, it seems to work just fine, just no minimap.
  7. Ok, I tried Ismooches video - still no Rei's minmap, so I followed all the instructions on and now not only is there no Rei's minimap there are no mods showing at all. Now what??
  8. Start with a clean jar, the use the method I quoted above, after that, I can help.
  9. Also, I do not know if I got the right thing for the "forge installer" site, there are hundreds of files there.
  10. Click the installer link near the top where it says Recommended-1.6.2. If you used the incorrect version of forge the first time around with my tutorial, that's probably why you had problems. If so I suggest trying again, because as I stated at the bottom of the page, my game launched without problems after following the tutorial. :)
  11. Thank you! I am back to where I was yesterday with the Mods: Optifine, Minecraft Coder Pack, Forge Mod Loader, and Minecraft Forge showing up. Now, if I could just get Rei's minimap to work!
  12. How did you get that point? If you used my method, the next step will be to drag the Rei's files from the zip straight into the jar
  13. All you have to do for Rei's is drag the files into your jar, and it should launch fine. :)
  14. When I unzip the Rei's minimap I get these three things:
    a folder: reifnsk and two files: avg.class and modReiminimap.class
    Are those what I put in the jar, or do I have to open the reifnsk folder and copy those seperately?
  15. Just drop those three items into the jar. You don't have to worry about opening the reifnsk folder.

  16. All that, in the jar.
  17. It works!!! Thank you, thank you to everyone who assisted in this arduous task. Now, I have to wait all the way until Sunday (self imposed restriction so I actually get my work done) to play!
  18. I got everything installed on my second computer (including Rei's minimap) using these instructions with no problem. Thanks again!
