Recommended Posts

alll right id like some help, i am running Minecraft Java on Windows 10 Pro. when i tried to download the Forge luancher for 1.15.1 and it loaded up on the bottom tab que. so when it looked liked it finshed i clicked it (once) and i t asked me how i'd like to open the file. i pushed on notes. Now when it opened it looked like a whole bunch of jibberish symbols to me ( i am assuming the symbols are some mis-translation of the code). 

 

  Sooo i deleted that note then re-tried, this time it went to notes automaticlly., not giving me the options choice as before.

 

  1. Does anyone knows how to fix or is this not reversable

  2. does anyone have any reccommenditions on who would know?

Install Java and the installer's icon should change to match the Java icon, if not, run JarFix once

This is my Forum Signature, I am currently attempting to transform it into a small guide for fixing easier issues using spoiler blocks to keep things tidy.

 

As the most common issue I feel I should put this outside the main bulk:

The only official source for Forge is https://files.minecraftforge.net, and the only site I trust for getting mods is CurseForge.

If you use any site other than these, please take a look at the StopModReposts project and install their browser extension, I would also advise running a virus scan.

 

For players asking for assistance with Forge please expand the spoiler below and read the appropriate section(s) in its/their entirety.

Spoiler

Logs (Most issues require logs to diagnose):

Spoiler

Please post logs using one of the following sites (Thank you Lumber Wizard for the list):

https://gist.github.com/100MB Requires member (Free)

https://pastebin.com/: 512KB as guest, 10MB as Pro ($$$)

https://hastebin.com/: 400KB

Do NOT use sites like Mediafire, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, or a site that has a countdown before offering downloads.

 

What to provide:

...for Crashes and Runtime issues:

Minecraft 1.14.4 and newer:

Post debug.log

Older versions:

Please update...

 

...for Installer Issues:

Post your installer log, found in the same place you ran the installer

This log will be called either installer.log or named the same as the installer but with .log on the end

Note for Windows users:

Windows hides file extensions by default so the installer may appear without the .jar extension then when the .log is added the log will appear with the .jar extension

 

Where to get it:

Mojang Launcher: When using the Mojang launcher debug.log is found in .minecraft\logs.

 

Curse/Overwolf: If you are using the Curse Launcher, their configurations break Forge's log settings, fortunately there is an easier workaround than I originally thought, this works even with Curse's installation of the Minecraft launcher as long as it is not launched THROUGH Twitch:

Spoiler
  1. Make sure you have the correct version of Forge installed (some packs are heavily dependent on one specific build of Forge)
  2. Make a launcher profile targeting this version of Forge.
  3. Set the launcher profile's GameDir property to the pack's instance folder (not the instances folder, the folder that has the pack's name on it).
  4. Now launch the pack through that profile and follow the "Mojang Launcher" instructions above.

or alternately, 

 

Fallback ("No logs are generated"):

If you don't see logs generated in the usual place, provide the launcher_log.txt from .minecraft

 

Server Not Starting:

Spoiler

If your server does not start or a command window appears and immediately goes away, run the jar manually and provide the output.

 

Reporting Illegal/Inappropriate Adfocus Ads:

Spoiler

Get a screenshot of the URL bar or copy/paste the whole URL into a thread on the General Discussion board with a description of the Ad.

Lex will need the Ad ID contained in that URL to report it to Adfocus' support team.

 

Posting your mod as a GitHub Repo:

Spoiler

When you have an issue with your mod the most helpful thing you can do when asking for help is to provide your code to those helping you. The most convenient way to do this is via GitHub or another source control hub.

When setting up a GitHub Repo it might seem easy to just upload everything, however this method has the potential for mistakes that could lead to trouble later on, it is recommended to use a Git client or to get comfortable with the Git command line. The following instructions will use the Git Command Line and as such they assume you already have it installed and that you have created a repository.

 

  1. Open a command prompt (CMD, Powershell, Terminal, etc).
  2. Navigate to the folder you extracted Forge’s MDK to (the one that had all the licenses in).
  3. Run the following commands:
    1. git init
    2. git remote add origin [Your Repository's URL]
      • In the case of GitHub it should look like: https://GitHub.com/[Your Username]/[Repo Name].git
    3. git fetch
    4. git checkout --track origin/master
    5. git stage *
    6. git commit -m "[Your commit message]"
    7. git push
  4. Navigate to GitHub and you should now see most of the files.
    • note that it is intentional that some are not synced with GitHub and this is done with the (hidden) .gitignore file that Forge’s MDK has provided (hence the strictness on which folder git init is run from)
  5. Now you can share your GitHub link with those who you are asking for help.

[Workaround line, please ignore]

Java 8 HotSpot is what you want.

 

If you plan to make mods, get the JDK, if you just want to play, get the JRE

(Note: If you get the JDK you do not need the JRE because there's one included with the JDK).

 

Most of us get our Java from https://adoptopenjdk.net

    • @diesieben07 debug.log Had to upload it to Google Drive since the debug.log is too large for pastebin.
    • Whoops! Sorry about that. I've updated the code and removed the reference. The errant line (DivineFavourTabGui.java:31) is currently commented out as well.
    • Take a look at the github https://github.com/lordofwizard/mcserver and the video in it if you want to try it out You can host your very own Java/Bedrock Minecraft Server using Google Cloud Shell. This works under Ubuntu/Debian based Linux operation system. This project requires NO CREDIT CARD and the whole project is entirely FREE! You can make a server without costing you anything. The following features are added into this project are:   Supports different type of Bedrock Servers Clean & Friendly Interface Supports Additional type of Java Server (eg. Sponge, Paper, Fabric etc) Added Server Management Easier functional scripts (eg. ./uninstall allows you to delete your server easily) Instant EULA script setup (Completly skipping this part which makes other people's life much easier to manage) Faster Server Installation (It would probably take you like approx 30 seconds to setup a server) Server Specs: OS: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) x86_64 RAM: 8GB to 16GB Location: Based on your physical location. Storage: Approx 5GB CPU: AMD EPYC (2) 7B12 @ 2.249GHz or Intel Xeon (4) @ 2.199GHz You can view your exact specs by doing ./specinfo Keeping the Server Alive 24/7 There's only ONE way to keep your server online longer than 20 minutes: You must Keep your browser open to keep your server online. This so the shell doesn't get terminated when it's unused or the browser is closed. You can also use google cloud sdk if you don't want to keep you browser open (Don't worry, your device that is being used to host your server isn't affected from the intensity of your server.) If you have any method the would possibly keep the server alive 24/7, feel free to Fork this project and request a Pull to this project. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Limitation of this project Google Cloud Shell Quota While I was editing this project, I notice that Google has added a quota for each Cloud Shell uses and you can only host your server for the max of 50 hours per Week. Once you used all of the hours, you can't use it again until next week. No Dedicated IP Sadly you can't use the host IP into your dedicated IP as it won't let you join that server, you can only join your server by the generated dedicated IP provided by playit.gg. If you know how to reverse proxy the tunnel system, you can actually use the host IP to make a dedicated IP for your server but I highly doubt that would ever happen. Mixed Server Specs Each Cloud Shell session will have different specs of your server based on your physical location so you won't always get the best performance of your server but good news being that it's always the range between 8GB to 16GB so you won't have to worry about lag when playing in the server with high processing in your server. Even take a look at this:https://cloud.google.com/shell/docs/limitations Conclusion Now you can host your very own Minecraft Server for both Java & Bedrock fast and easy and it won't cost you a single penny to make a fast and strong server. Best of all, IT'S FOREVER! Feel free to leave any requests you would like me to add into the project. If you have any issues, go to the Issues tab and submit a issue there.
