I want to play the island survival mod but I don't know how to install it or whatever. I already downloaded it now I just need somebody to tell me how to get it to work. I've been searching for a bit and still don't know.

ok hold the Windows key and press R, type in %appdata% and press enter click roaming. find the .minecraft folder usually located at the top of the list. there should be a folder called: bin, click on it, find the minecraft.jar file, open it with Winrar, if you dont have WinRar heres the download link


download the top file. (WinRar x86), ok so open the minecraft.jar file with WinRar and the mod file with winrar.
have both opened up and visible side by side (backup your whole bin folder file incase you do something wrong) (to backup your bin folder its simple, make a new folder somewere name it whatever you want, copy and paste the whole bin folder into the new folder you made) now most modders will have a ModLoader first like Risugami and 303's ModLoader, so if you have a ModLoader downloaded, open with>WinRar and select all the files you see except the top one (...)  and drag them into your minecraft.jar file. go into a file in your minecraft.jar called META-INF and delete the 2 bottom MOJANG files. now exit both opened WinRar pages. reopen your minecraft.jar file (With WinRar) and open your actual mod you already had downloaded at first with WinRar and drag all the files except the top one (...) from your mod into the minecraft.jar folder, close both down, and open minecraft.

if it doesnt work you probably dont have the right ModLoader for that mod or the Mod itself is older than the current minecraft version which right now is 1.2.6. this will not work with the browser version of minecraft, only the minecraft alpha version you download from the website, make sure you read the instructions carefully and those of the website where you got your Mod and ModLoader. if it still wont work delete the whole bin folder and replace it with the backed up bin folder i told you earlier to do, if you think its a problem with the mod, try some of 303's mods and his special ModLoader that he and Risugami merged together, his arrow mod is a great way to start. and its really easy to use, if you have any problems then just write back to me on the forums or send me an email at: [email protected] (sending me an email will increase the speed of me answering you back as i check my emails alot and dont go on the forums much at all).anyway i hoped this helped!
