I installed Minecraft Forge, deleted the META-INF, all that jazz, and now when I run the game, I get a black screen.. What do, guys?

Delete the minecraft bin in the minecraft folder. Restart minecraft and it will download again. Go back in to the new minecraft.jar and delete meta-inf then put forge in. You most likely deleted the forge META-INF and not Minecraft.jar META-INF.

Edit: Make sure that minecraft and forge match. As example you can not use forge for 146 on mincraft 132.

After installing forge it will give you a black screen, you just have to wait a min. for the mojang thing to pop up. Also if you have any other mods installed, install them after you install forge.

go here for the different builds: http://files.minecraftforge.net/
And when you download forge, make sure you are clicking on "universal"

I have tried the above, but I still get a black screen AFTER the Mojang screen.  I do a forced update, plain Minecraft plays fine, but when I install Forge, the black screen returns.  I am using Minecraft 1.4.7 and Forge 6.6.0.497.

Another thing you can try is, go to your .minecraft folder, take out your saves and put it on your desktop, then delete the .minecraft folder, and then run minecraft again. sometimes forge needs a fresh .minecraft folder.

No, that's only for certain mods that utilize that program. If he needed it for his own mod, I think he would know...

Are you using a free client such as mineshaftersquared? If you are, then Forge will not work.
