I am using the most recent "Feed The Beast" launcher and i have a legitimate Minecraft account. I downloaded the launcher for "Feed The Beast" yesterday and the launcher is having problems downloading any of the mod packs. When i either click launch with a mod pack selected or i force update it goes to a small loading screen saying:
Downloading mod pack...
Please Wait
This message remains constantly and the download bar makes no progress. I have left this screen for many hours and still no progress.

Please help me

More than likely you need to update your FTB launcher. I had this same problem until I updated.

i've noticed over the last couple of days the packs don't always show on the left side, but the last selected pack shows on the right and if i hit launch it loads that pack fine.
closing and reopening the pack seems to fix it

I had this same problem, and after looking at countless forum posts nobody had the answer. The sole reason I made an account here was so I wouldn't be the guy who left everyone else to rot after I solved the issue. There's a chance that what I discovered won't fix everybody's problem, but seeing as nobody else has even suggested this, and as soon as I changed this it worked immediately, I'd say there's a pretty good chance this is what's causing the issue.

YOU NEED TO HAVE JAVA 6 INSTALLED.

The newest version of Java, Java 7, is what is causing the issue. Here is a step by step guide to fixing the problem:

1 - Go to Add/Remove Programs in your control panel, or if you have Windows 7 just type Uninstall into your Start Menu and choose Uninstall a Program.
2 - Scroll down until you find Java and check your version. If you have Java™ 7 Update (Anything) installed, that is your issue. Uninstall EVERYTHING JAVA RELATED, including any updates.
3 - Download the installer for Java 6. As of today you can find it here: http://java.com/en/d...d/manual_v6.jsp . Download the 32-bit or 64-bit version depending on your system.
4 - Install Java 6. Go ahead and use the default install settings unless you know what you're doing.
5 - Try running Feed the Beast normally. It should actually download the modpacks now.


IF THESE INSTRUCTIONS HELPED YOU SOLVE THE PROBLEM, PLEASE SHOW YOUR GRATITUDE BY GOING BACK TO ANY FORUMS YOU PREVIOUSLY VISITED AND COPY/PASTING THIS FIX THERE. I DO NOT NEED TO BE CREDITED, I JUST WANT TO HELP ANYBODY ELSE WHO IS EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE.


There is no worse feeling than seeing a thread where somebody with the exact same problem as you posts "I figured it out, thanks guys!" You end up screaming at your screen "HOW?! WHAT DID YOU DO!", but no force on earth will bring them back to that forum once their own problem is solved. Don't be that person. If you figure out the solution to a problem go back and tell everybody what you did. The people of a forum helped you out by providing suggestions, and it's likely that someone else out there will have the same problem you do. Pay it forward, post your solution.

You're all welcome.

Java 6 is no longer available publicly, but a google search remedied that.

Worked for me. FTB loaded instantly and loaded the list of all mod packs, even the 1.6.4 ones. I've been having lag spike issues with java 7 and I'm gonna go see if they are gone using java 6 now. btw I got Java 6 update 43 from oldapps.com
