Installation update confusion


Recommended Posts

Can someone patiently explain


a) what the difference is between the "installer" and "universal" versions of the forge download files.

b) how to upgrade an installation done with "minecraftforge-installer-1.6.4-" to the latest version using "forge-1.6.4-9.11.965-universal.jar"?

c) If b isn't doable, how to upgrade using "forge-1.6.4-9.11.965-installer.jar".

The Universal is what the installer installs, we still ship JUST the universal so that server admins can easily update. For them, it's just a drop/replace.

For players {on the client side} you should always just use the installer.

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