OK, so last month I got a new computer. I was SUPER excited because my old computer was a piece of crap. I downloaded Minecraft, and a short while after I was able to get shaders with OptiFine 1.8.9. I downloaded Forge so I could get mods working, and it loaded just fine! Well, until I tried to make it work with OptiFine. As soon as I placed my mod in the folder, Minecraft crashed! I deleted Forge so I didn't copy the crash report (YEAH, that was REEEEAL smart), but it did say, "We think your game may be modded, as such we can't accept this crash report".
BEFORE YOU START POSTING!
Here's some info:
-Yes, Minecraft was closed the whole time!
-I opened my task manager, and couldn't find javaw.exe.
-I don't have a minecraft.jar folder.....?
-I "apparently" don't have a bin in my .minecraft folder?!
-I opened my forge file with PeaZip and couldn't find META-INF.
Couple things, and I'm not trying to be rude, just explain a few things (I know explaining stuff can come off as rude or being a know-it-all but I see nothing wrong with explaining things, everyone makes mistakes and nobody knows everything).
- "minecraft.jar" is not a folder, it is a jarfile (compiled Java) containing the game's source (which Forge modifies).
- It told you your game was modded because there is a .json file for every profile in your launcher. The game detects if the game has been modded by checking the version in this file (Originally said something about Forge here but I was mistaken. Check in your versions folder, you'll see that every folder contains a .json file with dependencies, version info, etc.).
- Why do you need the bin folder or META-INF? Just curious.
I believe Optifine has Forge-compatible and incompatible versions. Check if the one you downloaded has Forge compatibility, and if not, get the version that does and try again.
If that doesn't work, go try to recreate the issue, copy the crash report, and paste it here (use the [.code] tag without the period,
for crash reports, way more readable). I'll see what I can do about that.
Y'all kids are spoiled nowadays, back in Alpha/Beta you had to manually install mods and if your MC black-screened you had to re-download minecraft.jar and try to figure out which mods were causing the incompatibility. Those were the days when mods meant business. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
