Installation
Windows:
1) Open up %appdata%, if you don't know how to do this, start>run, then type in %appdata%
2) Browse to .minecraft/bin
3) Open up minecraft.jar with WinRAR or 7zip.
4) Drag and drop the necessary files into the jar.
5) Delete the META-INF folder in the jar.
6) Run Minecraft, enjoy!

Macintosh:
1) Go to Applications>Utilities and open terminal.
2) Type in the following, line by line:

cd ~
mkdir mctmp
cd mctmp
jar xf
~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar3) Outside of terminal, copy the class files into the mctmp directory.
4) Back inside terminal, type in the following:

rm META-INF/MOJANG_C.*
jar uf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar ./
cd ..
rm -rf mctmp5) Run Minecraft, enjoy!

Quoted from Risugami himself.
it didn't change the design of the home screen, i think it is that mod that when you install it that it splits the "texture pack" button in half, and beside it it is supposed to say "mods"? Help would be appreciated, and if there is a better mod loader please tell me.

Modloader is the mod that makes some mods which would otherwise be incompatible with Minecraft, compatible. As far as I know, it doesn`t do anything noticeable however I haven`t dabbled in hardcore modding in a few months.

*facepalm* ModLoader is required if you want to use other mods. ModLoader isn't a game changing modification.

Yes, modloader is required for almost any other mod to work, the mod that splits the texture pack button into a mods button and a texture pack button is called Minecraft forge you can get it here:

Except that Modloader (Risu's, not to point fingers) sucks compared to forge.
I like things that do things.

I have had a problem installing modloader on my osx mac. I follow the process of unziping the jar, and directly placing the .class files into minecraft before re zipping it, and placing it back into the bin folder. this has worked before for spc, however when I try this with Modloader, and try to run minecraft, it gets stuck on the loading screen at 'Done Loading', and never progresses from there. I tried the terminal installation, however when it said to simply copy the .class files to the temp file created, I had no idea where to find this temp file i just created. help...
P.S. my end goal is to install SPC and worldEdit CUI, which i believe are all compatible for 1.4.5 at this time

ok, but what if i do not want the modloader anymore? Can i just simpy delete and happily keep on playing without theMETA-INF file? Or will something happen to my game? Or can I delete the entire .minecraft file and re-install?

You can delete the entire .minecraft files, but make sure you backup up your saves folder in the .minecraft.
The easier method is to click force update in the launcher.

Please quote my post when you are replying to me so that you make sure that I read it.

Your trying to install MinecraftForge, not ModLoader. Those instructions are for ModLoader, so they will not work on Forge. But, get Forge instead, way more mods use Forge than ModLoader, and its also easier to install.

I find it amusing that you are trying to install a mod that does one thing, when you are thinking of a mod that is actually better than the one you are thinking of.

Modloader is for copy and paste modders, with forge, everything is original and has FAR more work put into it than modloader mods, and hence, even better mods.

Do all mods use ModLoader?
My name is Ciara. IGN: Jednerd. I like Jedward. A lot. Mojang should implement Jedward into Minecraft. If I knew how to create a mod, I would create a Jedward mod. They would be a passive mod. You would not be able to kill them. There would only be two in the world, John, and Edward. You would have to create a "Jedward summoner" to find them. I'm not saying anymore. Contact me if you want to create that mod. Or, contact me if you want to tell me how to create that mod.

No.

In my opinion, mods that you don't need any kind of mod manager, such as TooManyItems are the best.
