Custom installer?


Recommended Posts

Do not make custom installers.

All the user has to do is to drag the mods into the mods folder. There is no need for an installer for such a simple task.

Custom installers are potentially reshipping mods in addition to security problems.

Some tips:

Modder Support:

1. Do not follow tutorials on YouTube, especially TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.

2. Always post your code.

3. Never copy and paste code. You won't learn anything from doing that.

4.

Programming via Eclipse's hotfixes will get you nowhere

5. Learn to use your IDE, especially the debugger.

The "picture that's worth 1000 words" only works if there's an obvious problem or a freehand red circle around it.

Support & Bug Reports:

Spoiler

1. Read the EAQ before asking for help. Remember to provide the appropriate log(s).

2. Versions below 1.11 are no longer supported due to their age. Update to a modern version of Minecraft to receive support.

I want to make it for some friends. They are to lazy to look up a video some where. And I just want to if its possible. If the awnser is yes, then what is a good way to start.

Yes, of course it is possible to create an installer that merely copies a file to the mods folder.

No, you should not do this.

 

If your friends are unwilling to copy a file into the mods folder then I'd suggest you tell them to stop being lazy.
