Oh gosh, how simple.
Oh boy howdy, how easy.
If only the documentation matched. Oh wait it does.
(I will note that I haven't messed with the code in like 3 years and I am sending and not verifying the TE pos)
Failed to download file.
Filename on disk: 1.12.2-forge-18.104.22.16855.jar
I get this every time I try to start Minecraft Forge, but is there a fix for it?
As an additional measure to make sure I don't misdiagnose it as "corrupted", I opened the .jar file in \.minecraft\versions\1.12.2-forge-22.214.171.12455\ as a ZIP archive and indeed it couldn't be opened.
However, something quite funny happened in the logs window: A ton of text written in the language of my PC appeared, with the letter "é" appearing as a question mark inside of a diagonal square.
