Hey everyone. I wanted to share a script I came up with that allows you to install the latest minecraftforge release into a minecraft_server.jar file extremely easy on OSX Mac systems.
All that is required is:
create a folder on your desktop named temp
Go inside that folder and place a clean minecraft_server.jar and any release of Forge that you would like installed.
Next, open up Textedit and paste the following code into it:
jar xfv ../minecraftforge*.zip
rm -rf META-INF
jar ufv ../minecraft_server.jar *
rm -rf mctemp
Save the file as a plain text file and name it something like "Forge_Installer.command" inside the same Desktop/temp/ folder.
You will most likely need to give this file executable permissions so next you will need to open up terminal and run the following commands:
chmod a+x Forge_Installer.command (or whatever you named your script file)
This only needs to be done once and when it is completed you can use this script file over and over on future releases of forge.
Close terminal and make your way to your destkop and then the temp folder.
Make sure you have a clean minecraft_server.jar and whatever version of forge.zip that you want installed.
Double click on your Forge_Install.command file and it should automatically run everything you need.
When the process is complete you will have an updated minecraft_server.jar ready to use.
