People have been making mods for Minecraft, essentially since the game was first released. Back in the day, because there was only the one game mode, people were modifying creative mode to make it easier to navigate and play – mods like Too Many Items were some of the first to be seen by the Minecraft community. As time progressed and Survival and Hardcore game modes were introduced, the modding community had many more opportunities to modify Minecraft and change up the standard game experience. Today, Minecraft Forge API is a necessary tool for anyone modding their Minecraft game.
Basically, Minecraft Forge API is a mod loading and execution tool. Forge was developed not only so other mods would work properly, but so players could turn on and off the mods they want (or don’t want) to play with, with the click of a mouse in an easy-to-read window, rather than making them dig through their Minecraft data and mods folders to switch things on and off manually.
Minecraft Forge is more than just a mod loading tool, however. It also helps players who are designing their own mods by ensuring compatibility with Minecraft Forge API. This makes player-made mods more efficient than if they were being made without concern for compatibility, and thanks to an updated GUI, Forge will let players know if an improperly installed mod will cause the game to crash, before the player starts their game and experiences said crash.
Minecraft Forge API is a great modloading tool that also helps players in making mods the whole Minecraft community can enjoy. It is incompatible with Modloader though, so don’t even try to play with both programs installed.

Nossa meu sonho ter o Minecraft versão. 17
I think the problem is that there is no manual path to minecraft.Jar. There is only the launcher. Anyone know how to manually run minecraft without the launcher?
its a freaking 1.7.10 forge modloader why do they say it’s 1.8 ?!?!
minecraft 1.7.10 is not minecraft 1.8 they are totally different versions of the game
How do I uninstall forge from my computer completely?
put all your texture packs and worlds in a seperate folder (like on your desktop) then highlight everything in the %appdata%/roaming/.minecraft then press delete on your keyboard, then run the minecraft launcher (as if you wanted to play vinalla minecraft, then go back to the %appdata%/roaming/.minecraft folder, then put your worlds and texture packs back in the designated folders, sounds complicated but its not
Yeah, It Is. I’ve had problems with it before but AVG protects me now. They use many advertisements that trick you into clicking on them.

Download some, bro
OMG HOW DO U DOWNLOAD IT
I have no idea.
You need Java then use Java to open the thing. Then, use “Install Client”.
Causes null pointer exception upon launching.
IKR! I couldn’t find the freaking real download link! WTF
I can’t get it running and I ran minecraft 1.8 once!>:(
I run 1.8.1 aka latest version via team viewer launcher
when i attempt to “install client” it tells me i need to run 1.8 at least once manually first???
what on earth does that mean??
You need to run one time Minecraft, not launcher!
Also, select in launcher settings to run the Minecraft 1.8 version, not 1.8.1!
minecraft 1.8 forge isn’t working…
YMMD with that answre! TX
lo instalo y cuando intento abrir el forge 1.8 me marca un error, el unico que eh podido instalar hasta el momento es de la version 1.7.10 el resto no me funciona que pasara? que tendre que modificar en mi minecraft para que funcione la version 1.8?
what is ilivid
ads, you clicked the wrong thing – that’s how they trick you into getting viruses and worse
the 1.8 forge does not work for me.
PLEASE HELP! I have done this a million times already, expecting different results… x [
And every time (even tho ive followed all instructions when I open minecraft there IS NO MOD BUTTON!!!!
I know how, first get options.txt then saves then servers.dat and drag it onto youre desktop and move everything else into trash, then go to minecraft and play the version you want once for like 1 second or more then quit, install forge and put the options.txt,servers.dat and save onto the new ones and replace them and done, if it is done correctly there should be a profile called Forge.
my son loves using mcsix for mods
so .. how do you do ?
why is it installing Ilivid not the actuall Forge loader?

quiero el arma gravitatoria
isn’t mathematically speaking, 1.7.10 just the same a 1.7.1 only with less sig figs?
Not if you replace the periods with commas!
Seriously… 1.7.10 is read as “one point seven point 10”, whereas 1.7.1 is basically “one point 7 point one”.
And besides, 1.7.10 does not equal 1.8. Jesus, WHY are there SO MANY retards in this world?
There is no such thing as 1.7.1 in mathematical notation. The numbers are version numbers, not mathematical figures. Therefore, 10 is a very different number than 1. It’s literally Minecraft Version 1, Sub-version 7, Revision 10. That’s what those numbers mean. So is 10 a different number than 1? I sure think so.
Hi guys this mod is awsome innit

Can it work on demo?
wow I knew they will post 1.10 forge XD
é muito bom
does this work in 1.10?
That’s what I need to know too.
Why do sites like yours always say ‘1.10’ in the title and then point out in broken English way down the page that it isn’t ready for 1.10 yet? Is it because you’re so desperate to get to the top on Google searches?
this crashes my game when i try to start it
“working” for 1.10 BUT when picking up items things are getting duplicated. while some may thing this is good, for someone who just wants to play a nice survival game, this is kind broken. just so you know.
Alguém do brasil por aqui?
Tem um problema no forge 1.9.4 (comigo), as letras do todo o jogo, e quando se entra em um mapa todos os blocos estão ruins e os itens tbm estão ruins. Vou baixar a 10.1 pra ver se esse erro para.
Forge 1.10 is “working” but when the a map is actually played, and dropped items are picked up, they are being duplicated. While this may not seem like a problem to some, whole stacks can be duplicated this way. Drop a stack of 8, pick up 16. This is breaking a survival world. Just thought I’d report this.
i kind of like it like 50% and 50% but it’s still fun!
I NEED A MOD EASY NOT EVEN ESCAPE GOOGLE THEN ANYTHING BUT MINECRAFT PLEASE!
There is no installer in either of the 1.10 .zips???
Uuuuugghhh I’ve been trying to get a mincraft handers simulator and now what am I supposed to freaking do someone please help me ????????
How many mods can be added to the Minecraft?
Cannot get the installer to pop up for me. Where should I extract it?
They don’t tell you that you need to open it with Java not WinRAR. This left me relatively confused.

1.11 beta’mı ? sorunsuz çalışıyomu ?
1.10.2 schemtica or the light mod for it makes the launcher crash anyone who can help
1.11, tried running the game in the 1.11 forge environment through Magic Launcher, all I got was a log window. Try selecting “close” and I get an error window. Closing the window itself just leaves me with the game not launching.
I cam’t craft a few things while using the forge for 1.11 for example I can’t craft a bed or sticks. I tried again in the normal non forge minecraft and it works but in the forge minecraft it doesn’t work. What can I do? PS: it’s not a mod problem, I already removed all mods while using forge minecraft and still no sticks except regular minecraft
Same as the previous speaker. Few items cannot be crafted. I haven’t even install any mods yet, so it has to be forges fault :/
