[solved]Help! Read the EAQ but how to run version manually?


Recommended Posts

My son is desperate to get into mods, but he's 7 and I'm the clueless mom.


I read about Forge and how that makes the process easier, so I downloaded it for Minecraft 1.8.1 which is what he's playing.


I get the "You need to run the version 1.8.1 manually once." message when I try to install it. I read that it means I "have to run VANILLA minecraft (no mods) for the version listed" but we have no mods. He has freshly downloaded Minecraft 1.8.1, he's played it but he's not added any mods whatsoever. So how do we run it manually?


I appreciate any help you can offer, he's frustrated with my inability to actually get this set up  ::)


Also, in case I get this verification question again, what IS "Lex's full nick name"?
