Forge server 1.8 Download Fail


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone on Forge!


I have an Issue regarding installing a forge server. I followed a tutorial on how to download one earlier, and the server worked for a while. Then somehow I lost the folder that had the server in it. So I was forced to re-install the server. I followed the tutorial again and when I clicked on the .jar file labeled "minecraft_server.1.8.jar", which downloads required folders for me to actually have a server, Unfortunately when I click this .jar file, it gives me an error message that says this:


A Java exception has occurred.


there is nothing else on the window except the close button and an OK button. I have been looking all over the internet for a fix but I can't find ANYTHING. can you guys help me find a fix?


Here's the video tutorial I followed:

Ok, I could not watch more than 10 seconds of that video, because omg that guy is annoying.


Anyways, you also don't need a f*cking 10+ minute video to explain how to set up a server. It's dead simple:

  • Run the Forge installer.
  • Select "Install Server" and point it at an empty folder.
  • Let it install.
  • Run the forge jar it created (not the minecraft_server jar,  that will launch vanilla).

Done. That's all.
