Arguments in the new forge installer

Recommended Posts

Hey, not sure were I'm supposed to post this, or even if I should, but are there any ways to pass arguments to the Forge installer? I'm working on an app in C# that fetches the latest forge, installs it, then copies mods to the Minecraft directory, but is there anyway to tell the forge installer to just install the client?

 

If there is I'd definitely still put a forge logo and a link to the site on the launcher  ;)

Why not just use the universal jar if you're going to go to that lengths...

 

Hmmm.. I guess I could, but then I'd still need to set up the profiles and such. Also, I'd need a DLL or something to copy files to and from the .jar format... I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. I guess if the users can't even figure out how to install the new forge, they shouldn't be playing. :P

 

PS. Great job on the installer. Makes trying to tell friends over the phone how to set up mods much less of a hassle ;)

True. Is there any way to somehow make it so everyone wins?

 

well we can make everyone except you win :P make a bot that downloads it through adfly, so youll go to prison but your feature will be released :P

 

kidding btw

 

 

, I'd need a DLL or something to copy files to and from the .jar format

jars are zip files btw, jsut a different name, nothing else is different

Lol. :P yeah, the big problem is I don't know if C#/.net 4.0 even supports editing zip files... Maybe i should do some searching. Also, I wonder how the adfly works. If I were to launch the adfly link, wait a second, then end the process, I wonder if the forge team still gets paid. ???

[sigh] nowadays you go to prison for sneezing in the wrong place :P

 

I wish there was still a way so that the forge team could still get paid, but if not I guess I'll stick with a link on the main form.

The adfly really isn't that big of a deal unless you plan on taking a significant portion of our download base. Yes its fairly important to me as I'm unemployed and this is my sole source of income. But you should be fine. The MAIN issue is that to be blunt... you know nothing needed to do what you want to do.. basic zip interactions. (You only need to extract a json file) and then editing and reading of json files.

 

I would seriously hold off any plans you have untill you do some research to learn exactly what you should bhe doing. Here is a hint, our installer is open source.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

Yeah, It's mostly just for a small private server... Also, I know it may be bad, but my technique for learning is to dive headfirst at what I want to do, then usually spend hours on google :P And i just found the installer on github... cool beans!
