Do I need Java to run mods and forge?


Recommended Posts

Hi -- I am trying to figure out how to download and run Minecraft mods.  I know I have to first load Minecraft Forge.  I am wondering if I have to have Java to do this??  I do not have Java on my computer (only have the Java that comes with Minecraft) and would like to keep it that way if at all possible.  I am running Windows 8.1 and have Minecraft 1.8.4.

Yes you do.

Everything runs off java. If you want to be special you can use the slim JRE the Mojang launcher downloads but that's only if you know what you're doing when it comes to running program. Our only support will be to install java. It's required for a large chunk of the internet, games, etc..

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