Installer won't install v 1.8

Recommended Posts

Installer quits with message "You need to run the version 1.8 manually at least once".

The problem is, I have. Anyone know what I need to do to get round this?

 

OS - Linux Mint 17.1

Renamed .minecraft folder to .maincraft_BAK

Downloaded fresh Minecraft.jar

Ran it - it created a new .Minecraft folder, logged in, it ran version 1.81, I created a new world, etc

Downloaded forge-1.8-11.14.0.1299-installer.jar, made it executable and ran it from inside the .Minecraft Folder

Installer quits with message "You need to run the version 1.8 manually at least once".

 

Checked in Versions and I have a folder 1.81 with one item,  a .jar file

[14:29:28] [server thread/INFO]: Starting integrated minecraft server version 1.8.1

Downloaded forge-1.8-11.14.0.1299-installer.jar,

"You need to run the version 1.8 manually at least once".

Think about it....

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

Good point.

 

But honestly, that is a bit ambiguous. Version numbers are sometimes used in a way that 1.8 = 1.8.x. Now of course you wouldn't expect 1.8.4 work with 1.8.1 or something but since this is just setting up the Minecraft default files and the 1.8.x .jar isn't even used as far as the used is concerned, it seems like a reasonable assumption.

 

Might it be worth making the error message more informative, e.g. "1.8 (not 1.8.x)" instead?

 

This is kind of like saying you should measure 2 ml instead of 2.0 ml, which indicates a difference in the required precision of the measuring instrument. Program version numbers unfortunately aren't always this precise because 1.8 is how you would write "1.8.0."

No. There is no such thing as minecraft 1.8.0

we refer to them exactly as mojang does.

if you cant understand basic names then in sorry i cant help you.

this is always how it has been done in minecraft and as it always will be EVERY version of mc is unique and does not work with any other.

 

And no i will not retroactily rebuild all of the installers because people are to dumb to read and assume things they shouldnt.

and as for your argument that adding a .0 is "more precise" in measurents, this is flat out wrong. "Add 2 gallons" is NOT the same as "add 2.999999999999 gallons"

That's what I said — you don't say 1.8.0, you say 1.8. But a 1.8 release does not mean the 1.8 release. It could be the 1.8.4 release. Hence the potential for confusion.

 

And I do agree that there is no point in modifying already-released installers. I didn't mean you should do that. For, say, a 1.9 release, that could be worthwhile, of course that is assuming the error messages are easily modifiable which may not be true.

 

If you measure 2.00001 ml then that's clearly different from 2.0 ml. The latter has an implied uncertainty of like ±0.05 ml and for the former it's ±0.000005 ml (not exactly like that but it shows the idea).

Yes.. 1.8 does mean THE 1.8.

Its jot something worth arguing. Future versions of the installer (or well any version as of two months ago) dont require you to manually run mc before hand.

I still cant understand how people can be so stupid and get confused but whatever.
