Have you tried looking at how Vanilla does it?

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.


Logs (Most issues require logs to diagnose):


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:

  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:


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:


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:


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]

    • **This issue was also reported to the OptiFine Github Issues page, by myself: https://github.com/sp614x/optifine/issues/6432 Description of Issue Forge instance is crashing when loading up with OptiFine in the mod folder. From the debug-log I could understand that it tried loading up OptiFine first, but then it ends in an "Unexpected issue occured. Exit Code: 0.".   Steps to Reproduce 1. Download mods in Mod list 2. paste OptiFine and other Mods into the Mods-Folder 3. paste launching Args to the Launching-Argument-Line of the Forge-Profile 4. launch Minecraft 5. game Crashing before showing up.   Minecraft Launching Arguments (+750MB more RAM = -Xmx2750M ) Launching Args: -Xmx2750M -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:G1NewSizePercent=20 -XX:G1ReservePercent=20 -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=50 -XX:G1HeapRegionSize=32M   OptiFine Version OptiFine HD U H3 pre6 (most recent) and the release1.18 versions beforehand   Forge Version 1.18 - 38.0.14 (most recent) and the release1.18 versions beforehand   Other Installed Mods Catalogue: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/catalogue/files/3543625 Configured: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/configured/files/3546349 Jade: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/jade/files/3544015 Jade-API: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/jade/files/3544058   Log Files/Crash Reports debug-log (versions noted in this bug-report): https://pastebin.com/9J2PWB61 debug-log (versions noted in the pastebin): https://pastebin.com/SKxdcDvJ   F3 Debug Screenshot I am not entering the main menu at all, in this case I sadly can not include that F3-Debug-Screen-Screenshot   Prior Testing Does this happen without other mods installed? Yes, it does happen, when OptiFine is being launched without any other mods installed. Does this happen without any mods at all? There is no crash occurring, if Forge is launched without any mods installed. Does this happen in OptiFine standalone? No. The standalone version is launching up just fine, as expected. Does this happen in Vanilla without OptiFine? No. The Vanilla 1.18 us launching without any issues. Does this happen in Forge standalone? No. Forge standalone in launching just fine, as expected. Have you tried using a binary search to find which mods cause this issue? I removed mods one-by-one and in groups (with and without OptiFine): https://pastebin.com/T6Fvysjg   Additional Information No crash reports available because of Exit Code: 0   My Conclusion Forge and OptiFine seem to be incompatible.
    • I have another issue. Let me explain my use of the entity. The server is spawning that entity, that just goes upwards. When it reaches the position of the block above,  it deletes itself. At that time, the entity will place a block there.  This entity is spawned only on the client, using a packet. Multiple may be spawned at a time.  I haven't made the entity place the blocks yet, because I ran into an issue.  My game bugs out randomly, when spawning these entities. My modded overlay disappears, my placer stops moving and oscillates back and forth, and I can't do anything.  public class MudWallBlockEntity extends Entity { private BlockPos startingBlockPos; private BlockState blockState; private int ticks; public MudWallBlockEntity(EntityType<? extends MudWallBlockEntity> entityType, World level){ super(entityType, level); } public MudWallBlockEntity(EntityType<? extends MudWallBlockEntity> entityType, World level, BlockPos position, BlockState block){ super(entityType, level); this.startingBlockPos = position; this.blockState = block; this.setPos(position.getX(), position.getY(), position.getZ()); this.ticks = 0; } @Override protected void defineSynchedData() { } @Override protected void readAdditionalSaveData(@Nonnull CompoundNBT pCompound) { } @Override protected void addAdditionalSaveData(@Nonnull CompoundNBT pCompound) { } @Override public IPacket<?> getAddEntityPacket() { LogManager.getLogger().error("THE GAME CRASHED BECAUSE THE /SUMMON COMMAND WAS USED TO SUMMON MudWallBlockEntity!"); return null; } @Override public void tick() { if(ticks++ == 0){ // the entity was placed into the world. } LogManager.getLogger().info("ticks: " + ticks); if(blockPosition().getY() >= startingBlockPos.getY()){ remove(); return; } setDeltaMovement(0, 0.05, 0); move(MoverType.SELF, getDeltaMovement()); } public BlockState getBlockState() { return blockState; } public BlockPos getStartingBlockPos(){ return startingBlockPos; } @Override public boolean canBeCollidedWith() { return false; } @Override protected boolean canAddPassenger(Entity pPassenger) { return false; } @Override public boolean canChangeDimensions() { return false; } } public class MudWallBlockEntityRenderer extends EntityRenderer<MudWallBlockEntity> { public MudWallBlockEntityRenderer(EntityRendererManager entityRendererManager) { super(entityRendererManager); this.shadowRadius = 0.5F; } @Override public void render(MudWallBlockEntity entity, float entityYaw, float partialTicks, MatrixStack matrixStack, IRenderTypeBuffer buffer, int packedLight) { BlockState blockstate = entity.getBlockState(); if (blockstate.getRenderShape() == BlockRenderType.MODEL) { World world = entity.getCommandSenderWorld(); if (blockstate != world.getBlockState(entity.blockPosition()) && blockstate.getRenderShape() != BlockRenderType.INVISIBLE) { matrixStack.pushPose(); BlockPos blockpos = new BlockPos(entity.getX(), entity.getBoundingBox().maxY, entity.getZ()); matrixStack.translate(-0.5D, 0.0D, -0.5D); BlockRendererDispatcher blockrendererdispatcher = Minecraft.getInstance().getBlockRenderer(); for (net.minecraft.client.renderer.RenderType type : net.minecraft.client.renderer.RenderType.chunkBufferLayers()) { if (RenderTypeLookup.canRenderInLayer(blockstate, type)) { net.minecraftforge.client.ForgeHooksClient.setRenderLayer(type); blockrendererdispatcher.getModelRenderer().tesselateBlock(world, blockrendererdispatcher.getBlockModel(blockstate), blockstate, blockpos, matrixStack,buffer.getBuffer(type), false, new Random(), blockstate.getSeed(entity.getStartingBlockPos()), OverlayTexture.NO_OVERLAY); } } net.minecraftforge.client.ForgeHooksClient.setRenderLayer(null); matrixStack.popPose(); super.render(entity, entityYaw, partialTicks, matrixStack, buffer, packedLight); } } } @Override public ResourceLocation getTextureLocation(MudWallBlockEntity pEntity) { return AtlasTexture.LOCATION_BLOCKS; } } Spawning code: public static void handlePacket(ServerSpawnMudWallEntityPacket message, Supplier<NetworkEvent.Context> ctx) { PlayerEntity player = (PlayerEntity) Minecraft.getInstance().cameraEntity; ClientWorld level = (ClientWorld) (player.getCommandSenderWorld()); for(Tuple<BlockPos, UUID> spawnData : message.getSpawnList()){ BlockPos blockPos = spawnData.getFirst(); UUID uuid = spawnData.getSecond(); MudWallBlockEntity entity = new MudWallBlockEntity( ModEntities.MUD_WALL_BLOCK_ENTITY.get(), level, blockPos, ModBlocks.TEMPORARY_DIRT_BLOCK.get().defaultBlockState()); entity.setPacketCoordinates(blockPos.getX(), blockPos.getY(), blockPos.getZ()); entity.moveTo(blockPos, 0f, 0f); entity.setUUID(uuid); level.putNonPlayerEntity(entities++, entity); } } The UUID is just UUID.getRandom. "entities" is an integer. The value printed in the entity tick is one tick (so the method ran once before doing entity.remove()) Here is what happens: https://streamable.com/mc98kl
