    7.a Open Forge-1.6.1, delete all text, and paste in the following:



    I tested on Linux works fine. Adjusted the ID in your jason file to match the directory, otherwise it creates a blank directory.

    does 1.5.2 mods work on 1.6.1?


    This is a major update so no, older versions rarely work.

    Hey guys I'm going to explain step by step how to install Forge for 1.6.1 for people who don't want to wait for them to finish the installer.

    In this tutorial I'm going to refer to the minecraft folder (.minecraft,Application Support/minecraft, etc.) as [minecraft]. For example, the saves folder is located at [minecraft]/saves.

    1. Open [minecraft]/versions.

    2. Duplicate 1.6.1

    3. Rename to Forge-1.6.1

    4. Open Forge-1.6.1

    5. Rename 1.6.1.jar to Forge-1.6.1.jar

    6. Rename 1.6.1.json to Forge-1.6.1.json

    7. This step is do-able in to ways. Use 7a or 7b to accomplish this.

    7.a Open Forge-1.6.1, delete all text, and paste in the following:

    7.b Delete Forge-1.6.1.json and download this file: http://cl.ly/Q0YR. You will need to open the zip, then put it in [minecraft]/versions/Forge-1.6.1/

    8. You should now have a folder looking like this:


    9. Open [minecraft]/libraries

    10. Make a folder called cpw and open it

    11. Make a folder called mods and open it

    12. Make a folder called fml and open it

    13. Make a folder called 5.2.29 and open it

    14. Download the latest 1.6.1 Forge from files.minecraftforge.net and rename it to fml-5.2.29.jar

    15. Put it in [minecraft]/libraries/cpw/mods/fml/5.2.29

    16. Open the launcher

    17. Make a new profile, set it to release Forge-1.6.1 as the version.

    18. Play.
    i have tried doing this and when minecraft tries to launch i get this message on the dev console :
    Gave up trying to download https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/libraries/cpw/mods/fml/5.2.29/fml-5.2.29.jar for job 'Version & Libraries'

    Hi, thanks for the step by step for installing forge to the client but i've had a few problems, i followed the route through '7b' and when i try to use that profile i get 2 errors, i will post the thread from the development console and maybe someone can help :)

    When I do this i go into the launcher and the only option it gives for what version to use is "Use Latest Version"?

    When i tried with a clean (no saves, no nothing i just deleted my minecraft and generated a new one, i didnt even play it at all) minecraft it worked. :) Still i wonder why it didnt work the first time.

    It's working, but the problem is, when I try to put a mod (any mod of 1.6.1) Minecraft crash after trying to open the game by the launcher.
  • #28
    iPixeli there is an installer available at files.minecraftforge.net, please link that in the Install Forge for Players. (First line)
  • #29
    Now I LOVE YOU, iPixeli !!! Thank you so much !!! I am no stranger to modding minecraft, but this new launcher is just absurd. I was up till 2:30 in the morning, trying just to install forge. I read tutorials,watched them, and nothing worked. Your method of creating these folders and what ever that .json file was worked the first try !!! I'm soooooo glad I stumbled upon your thread....You better link this to everything and I will too, LOL....This new launcher is going to cause MAJOR grief for a lot of users... Thanks again iPixeli, :Diamond: for you---painter

    Why did they have to change the way mods were installed? I thought it was absolutely fine the way it was before.
  • #31
    So if you want to run both 1.5.2 and 1.6.1 clients (say your favorite server is 1.6.1, but you're playing a massively modded single-player game, too), is there some way to split up mods and coremods by version? The 1.6.1 Forge-modded client gets very unhappy if there are 1.5.2 coremods in the coremods folder. Anyway to fix this?

    tHIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO ME


    I was having this issue too. Tried twice and even deleted my .minecraft folder for a fully fresh install (since there were leftover old launcher stuffs in there). No go. Found another tutorial with this same info. It would appear the json file text given here is outdated already and the other site had a newer file. http://cl.ly/Q0YR. This one works for me.


    Edit- After changing to the json I linked, be sure to update the launcher profile again to point to release fml-1.6.1. The version gets unset when the json changes and points to a blank version, which causes the launcher to hang.

    iPixeli there is an installer available at files.minecraftforge.net, please link that in the Install Forge for Players. (First line)
    Woow, minecraftforge's website seems to be down from all the traffic.

    Ikr. I think they're mostly trying to do away with third party launchers/installers. Funny how this new update makes everything harder.

    The installer installs it almost instantly. I beg to differ.

    When I go to the page where all the Minecraft Forge files are, I only see up to 1.5.2, no 1.6.1. I think there is a connection problem with me or something. Im just wondering if anyone is having the same problem.

    I'm trying to do the manual install and for some reason when I go to select the Modded folder when creating a profile, it doesn't show up.
