NOTE: This blog has not been updated for 1.7 because Forge has not came out for 1.7. This should take a while because the 1.7 update changed thousands of lines of code. When Forge for 1.7 comes out I will update this blog.

Hey Doods! Today I will be showing you how to install Minecraft Forge In 7 steps!

You need the new Minecraft Launcher for this

First Step - You need to download Forge. Link is here http://bit.ly/18kyzaY Then download the latest version (1.6.1)

Second step - Open the document that you downloaded. It should say: the directory is missing a launcher profile. Then close the Forge document.

Third Step - Open your Minecraft Launcher and create a new profile called Default by clicking on new profile and clicking create new profile.

Fourth step - Hit play using your new Default profile. Then at the home screen hit quit game and close the launcher.

Fifth Step- Open your Forge document again and it should be selected as Install client. Then hit OK and it should come up with a message saying "successfully installed client profile Forge (version)

Sixth Step - Open your Minecraft Launcher and look in your profiles and it should have made a new profile called "Forge".

Seventh Step - Hit play with the profile"Forge" selected.

That is how you install it.
