So I'm a very vanilla kind of guy but still like to install some mods that are good but haven't really found a basic mod installer
Therefore, I made this simple mod installer with drag and drop and multi install features
Here is a screenshot
What you do is click the "+" button to add a single or multiple mods contained in a zip file
You can also drag and drop the mods into the program to add it
After you done that, you can edit the mod's install order by the up and down button, or you can remove them by clicking the "-" button
You can select multiple mods in the list to move or delete
When you are done, you click the install button and wait for the program to pop out "Done"
It saves the old minecraft.jar as a backup which you can then click the "Restore minecraft.jar" button to restore the original file
I only tested a few mods, so tell me if you find any bugs and I will try to fix it
It should install TMI correctly (tested), and I have added the ability to install .class files individuality (though you have to extract it first and select the class files)
I tested it with Zombe's mods using the new .class feature and it works but you'll have to add the /mods/zombe/config folder manually
Sorry that it cannot be run by linux, I'm both a C# programmer and a Java programmer (and many other languages) but I don't use linux as my main OS so I don't really know how to code a program like this for linux... Maybe if I have time, I'll research into it but for now I probably won't, :/
Also, I don't really get why modders don't make .exe and .jar programs as a optional autoinstaller...
Anyone have an answer for this?
What I normally do when I'm creating programs is have a main executable that users open and that references a bunch of other source files (looks a lot less neat, but better than nothing:)). I don't know C# at all, however (I really should look into it), so I'm not sure if that's possible. Thanks anyway. I've been looking into getting Windows 7 for a while now so I may be buying that sometime. That would solve the problem too, I guess.
Use forges installer to instal forge.. drop mods in mods folder... bam done.. why do we need these 'mod installers'?
I actually tried doing that, and it didn't work out for me, so I am trying to find a mod installer that is simple and easy to use. Also, I wanted to point out that with the new minecraft, there is no mods folder in your .minecraft... so yeah
