We've been running vanilla servers for our family for about a year and decided it would be fun to try a mod on our server. At this point, we've been able to install the Forge version above on a client, but when we try to set it up on a new server, it won't even load. Below is the read out we get from the server console that shows that Forge didn't even load.
[iNFO] Starting minecraft server version 1.3.2
[WARNING] To start the server with more ram, launch it as "java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar"
[iNFO] Loading properties
[iNFO] Default game type: SURVIVAL
[iNFO] Generating keypair
[iNFO] Starting Minecraft server on *:25565
[iNFO] Preparing level "world"
[iNFO] Preparing start region for level 0
[iNFO] Done (0.909s)! For help, type "help" or "?"
We've now followed the directions on your site (they seem very simple and clear) 2 times from our Macintosh (running Mt Lion) and one time from our PC (Windows XP) with the same result.
Here are the steps we've been doing.
1. Getting a new 1.3.2 server.jar from Minecraft
2. Downloading the universal Forge files for servers
3. Copying the Forge files from Winrar into the server.jar (Or manually extracting them in Mac using the console commands) Not deleting the META-INF file.
4. Before adding any mods to the mod folder, we try to start the server. (See the log above)
Is there something we're missing in this process?
