How To Install Minecraft Forge (Used for most major mods)!



Step 1: Start your Minecraft and click the Options button then Force Update to get a clean .minecraft folder.

NOTE: THE VERSION NUMBER ON THE PAGE AND THE DOWNLOAD WILL CHANGE! ALWAYS USE THE LATEST BUILD! THE VERSION IN THE PICTURE IS VERY OLD!







Step 2: Download the latest recommended build of Forge from the Minecraft Forge Files Server (here (<- Ad link removed)). (Click on the download that says minecraftforge-universal-4-X-X-XXX.zip

Note: The (Ad link removed) the link is not my (Ad link removed)! It is the minecraft forge team's. Please use it to support them.

Step 3: Unzip the .zip folder that you downloaded from the last step.





Step 4: Drag all of the contents in the .zip into your minecraft.jar.





Step 5: Delete Meta-Inf OF THE MINECRAFT.JAR NOT THE MINECRAFTFORGE.ZIP(VERY IMPORTANT).





Step 6: Run your Minecraft.





Step 7: Install any mods into the /mods folder.
