OKAY GUYS! THIS IS HOW TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL FORGE FOR MINECRAFT ON MAC!!!!

Step 1: Go to the official Forge site- http://www.minecraft...x.php?board=3.0

Step 2: Click the CORRECT minecraft version. (If it is not there, then they haven't updated yet)

Step 3: Click on either Universal Adfly or Universal Direct. To use Adfly, you must wait 5 seconds and then click skip ad.

Step 4: Now in finder, unzip minecraft forge, (double click on it)

Step 5: Now take a break from forge and go to finder->your user->Library->Application Support->.minecraft->bin

Step 6: Right click minecraft.jar and click open with. Click Archive Utility or anything else EXEPT jar launcher.

Step 7: There should now be a folder named minecraft-1. Delete minecraft.jar.

Step 8: Right click minecraft-1 and click Get Info. Rename minecraft-1 to minecraft.jar

Step 8: Next you must go back to the forge folder and copy EVERYTHING. All class files, text, EVERYTHING.

Step 9: Drag or copy/paste the Forge files into the minecraft folder that we named minecraft.jar

NOTE: FOR MACS YOU DO NOT MESS WITH MEAT-INF. DO NOT DELETE IT!!!!

Step 10: Start up minecraft and it should look something like this.......Posted Image


See the mods folder. Posted Image

You now have forge installed.
Now you may be thinking What does Forge do?
Well you can install mods be just dragging into the mods folder.

How to install mods using Forge...

Step 1: Download your mod. Lets do Rei Minimap.

Here is Rei Minimap--
[1.4.5] [Nov.21] Rei's Minimap v3.2_05 - Minecraft Forum


NOTE: The miracle of forge is that once it is installed, you don't have to mess with the class files.

Step 2: Download Rei Minimap and find it in Finder->Your User ->Downloads.

Step 3: COPY THE .ZIP FILE,, DO NOT UNZIP IT. this counts fore ALL forge mods.

Step 4: Copy the ReiMinimap zip file and either drag or copy/paste it into Finder->Your User->Library->Application Support->.minecraft

Step 5: Create a folder in .minecraft and name it mods

Step 6: Place ReiMinimap.zip or whatever into mods

This was soooo helpful! I've been looking for a clear tutorial for ages - and finally I've found one! One thing that you may want to include is that you SHOULD NOT install mod loader after installing this :)

it did the exact same thing to me? can a computer expert please show their face and explain all this. becuase ive been searching for a year and every time the farthest i get is that miecraft starts loading then just stops at that screen
Dost thou wish to find mine kingdom? Then go unto the fiery depths of Hell, where the screams of dying Goldswine draw dark tears from the cursed warriors. There you shall find your transportation unto my kingdom. But you are not done yet. You must first get past the hordes of Goldswine that gaurd mine gate, angry at the loss of their brethren. After passing through them, you must find the Key to the Gate. And then, at last, you shall see my shining kingdom, and weep for joy.
