I hope this doesn't annoy anyone, but my fiance and myself need help installing ModLoader onto Minecraft 1.2.5.  She runs Windows 7, and I run Linux, but from what I've seen the instructions are the same:

1.  Download Modloader (don't know the best site for it though)
2.  Copy the contents of Modloader.zip directly into the parent directory of the minecraft.jar file
3.  Delete META-INF
4.  Done

Except, for both of us, the end result is a corrupt JAR file.  So, is there something we are doing wrong here, have we got a bad ModLoader archive, or what else is it?

Thanks in advance.

The instructions aren't the same. The instructions for Linux should be the same as what you do on a Mac, as far as the META-INF is concerned.

After copying the contents of Modloader.zip into minecraft.jar, DO NOT DELETE THE META-INF FOLDER. Instead, go into the META-INF folder and delete "CODESIGN.RSA" and "CODESIGN.SF", and leave the folder and MANIFEST.MF intact.

The Windows 7 instructions should be correct, though.

Unfortunately, those are the exact same instructions I followed above, but they don't work.

Okay, it took a while, but the JAR file you have to remove those from is in the /home/~userhere~/.minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar, not the JAR I use to launch the game.  I might have to record a video to help other Linux users in this matter.

My fiance is still having issues however, so I will have to continue testing hers.

I found it on my own easily enough, though. I guess I just assume that most Linux users should have a base knowledge of the system they're using, lol.

Are you following the instructions in Risugami's thread? It should still be accurate for Windows.

You could add the mods to mc patcher. That's how I install simple mods like TMI and Rei's mini map.
