Can't start minecraft forge after installation, error message claims the issue is the lack of a version .jar file

Ok, I found this site while searching for the missing version .jar file, which didn't show up in a net query through DuckDuckGo.  The thread on this site was closed after a comment from someone listed as a coder who stated that it was meant to work in this way, without a .jar file which is no longer necessary.  From earlier posts it seems that this person believed the OP had issues due to use of non vanilla launcher, which to me means he thinks they use a client or something like this.  The OP immediately said that they use vanilla, but doesn't seem like the coder believed them.  They began asking for logs, OP did not provide them.  No need to go further into details.

I just reinstalled Windows on an SSD and just installed Minecraft Java, Optifine, Shader, Forge.  That is all that exists on my pc right now, and I had the same issue with 1.19.2 Forge versions not creating .jar file.

Now I admit that I am likely missing something here and there is a technicality that isn't being fulfilled, but I have to say that it is not due to using a modified launcher.  All i have done is install optifine, put a shader into the shader folder, installed forge.  No mods yet, nothing. 

What is interesting, and is the only reason I felt the need to post here, is that when I went into minecraft library folder and copied forge-1.19.2-43.1.65-client.jar, (I renamed it without the -client,) the Forge version starts up just fine with no further issues.

From my point of view it seems that coders are dismissing some valid issues out of hand.  I mean, there are lots of really stupid and lazy people using computers and playing games, but not all of them are really stupid and lazy.  We all have bias, I know that I do as well, and I think it's helpful to be aware of our bias as far as we have the ability to be aware of it.

Again, it could be that my assumption that there is a problem with the installer not creating a version .jar file, but I couldn't get it to work, always failed with the same message and then put the .jar file in the version folder and worked without a hitch.

Oh, almost forgot, I also went into each installation and changed from 2 to 20GB RAM for the game.  In the past I had issues crashing with many mods installed due to lower RAM allocations and I have 48GB, so felt that was safe enough either way.  Maybe that caused the issue, for all I know.

 

Just saying, would have been nice if the coder had said go to (generic/vanilla path) and copy (version I used as example) forge-1.19.2-43.1.65-client, paste into forge version folder, rename to forge-1.19.2-43.1.65 and see if that does it.

also, just had to set up account to post this and noticed like 3 times I had to pick the right segments of images to verify before moving on.  I can't imagine that there are enough threat actors with their attention on minecraft modding communities to justify that level of protection.  Maybe the guys making these amazing and cool mods are kind of jerks about it, hahah?  Maybe, like other companies, customer service or satisfaction isn't that high a priority.  I don't feel like they get paid very much for making Forge and Minecraft Mods, I mean I wasn't required to pay anything to the creators to set this up.

 

Anyway, just wanted to vent.

    • I personally create registries using DataPackRegistryEvent.NewRegistry. It's pretty powerful as long as you know how to make codecs. In some class, make a registry key like so: public static final ResourceKey<Registry<MyDataType>> MY_REGISTRY = ResourceKey.createRegistryKey(new ResourceLocation(MyMod.MOD_ID, "registry_name")); This will make a registry that holds objects of type "MyDataType". JSON files stored in data/<datapack_namespace>/modid/registryname/ will be parsed and put into this registry. Note that the directory structure has a folder named after your mod inside your datapack directory, so the actual path would look like: data/my_mod/my_mod/registry_name (or if another mod uses your registry: data/their_mod/my_mod/registry_name. To register this registry, subscribe to the DataPackRegistryEvent.NewRegistry event on the MOD event bus and call event.dataPackRegistry() for every registry you have. An example of what I'm doing for my mod (this is in the constructor for the main mod file): IEventBus bus = FMLJavaModLoadingContext.get().getModEventBus(); bus.addListener((DataPackRegistryEvent.NewRegistry event) -> { event.dataPackRegistry(ModRegistries.INSULATOR_DATA, InsulatorData.CODEC); }); CODEC is a public static field inside the class for the custom data type I am registering. It holds a Codec<InsulatorData> that tells Minecraft how to serialize/deserialize the data. Most of my data so far can be represented by records, so I use RecordCodecBuilder.create() to do this: public static final Codec<InsulatorData> CODEC = RecordCodecBuilder.create(instance -> instance.group( // Yadda yadda ).apply(instance, InsulatorData::new)); What exactly to put here depends on what you're trying to do, so that's up to you. But basically you're just defining a list of codecs that correspond to the parameters of the record (data type). Most primitive data types have records in the Codec class (ex. Codec.INT) that you can use, and other classes like ResourceLocation have their own codecs as a static field (ex. ResourceLocation.CODEC). Hopefully this is what you're looking for, and that this helps.
    • Good days  I finnaly manage to fix and get a working gui from BlockItem and from BlockEntity the next issues i have to fix is this the block Entity model for some reason is moved to the south west  this briefcase model must be centered but is moved to a side, i have nothing weird in the code but this is happening // ########## ########## ########## ########## @Override public RenderShape getRenderShape(BlockState blkstate) {     return RenderShape.MODEL; } the block model is out of place However The hitBox of the block is right in place   ########################################################################################################### This next issue  Mi gui also adds the 5 slots from the player equipment the thing is theres no filter to determine whats can be put in an armor slot and what not      i have this method that draws the slots for the armor, the part i dont get i slike wheres the code that responds when you set an item in a item slot to do checks and allow the item to be set or not  //########## ########## ########## //Draw Player Armor private void addPlayerArmorSlots(Inventory playerInventory) { // 36 this.addSlot(new Slot(playerInventory, 39, 8, 8)); this.addSlot(new Slot(playerInventory, 38, 8, 26)); this.addSlot(new Slot(playerInventory, 37, 8, 44)); this.addSlot(new Slot(playerInventory, 36, 8, 62)); this.addSlot(new Slot(playerInventory, 40, 26, 53)); }   theres must be a method that triggers when you set a itemstack inside an slot and allows to do a check if its a valid item for that slot                                             
    • No like how do I use my new PreperableReloadListener, I know how to set it up now and register it, I just need to know how to use it in other classes.
    • Completely out of the blue my forge loader is lagging, although at 120 fps. Like when I turn it lags, or hit mobs it lags, or run sometimes although staying at 120 fps. I found another person having a similar problem:  But there was no solution I dont think. I tried everything from: 1. Updating my computer 2. Updating/reinstalling forge 3. Testing if allocated memory was problem (if it was low or high or mid nothing changed) 4. Adding various performance mods 5. Deleting most of my profiles if storage was a problem.   Really not sure what to do next or if forge is just broken for ever for me now.
