help Minecraft forge launcher crashing


Recommended Posts

Please provide debug.log (more info on where it is and how to provide it in my signature below, just expand the spoiler)

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]

    • I have an issue where after I exit the world the capability data does not save when I reload the world. It will save the initial data such as village name but if I modify any data during gameplay theres a 5% chance the data saves when I exit then reload the world. I read the docs and was told that chunks need to be marked dirty but the docs does not say how to mark the chunk dirty... Heres the provider: public class ChunkCapProvider implements ICapabilityProvider, ICapabilitySerializable<CompoundTag> { private final Capability<IChunk> capability = ChunkCapability.CHUNK_CAPABILITY; private final ChunkCapability instance = new ChunkCapability(); private final LazyOptional lazy = LazyOptional.of(()->instance).cast(); public void invalidate(){ lazy.invalidate(); } @Nonnull @Override public <T> LazyOptional<T> getCapability(@Nonnull Capability<T> cap, @Nullable Direction direction) { if(cap == capability ) return lazy; return LazyOptional.empty(); } @Override public CompoundTag serializeNBT() { return instance.serializeNBT(); } @Override public void deserializeNBT(CompoundTag tag) { instance.deserializeNBT(tag); } }   Heres the capability class: public class ChunkCapability implements IChunk { public static final ResourceLocation ID = new ResourceLocation(Main.MODID, "owner"); public static final String VILLAGE_NAME = "village_name"; public static final String SAVED_ROLES = "saved_roles"; public static final String SAVED_POINTS = "saved_points"; public static final String BAD_CHUNK = "BAD_VILLAGE_CHUNK"; public static Capability<IChunk> CHUNK_CAPABILITY = null; private String villageName = "BAD_VILLAGE_CHUNK"; private String savedRoles = ""; private String savedPoints = ""; public ChunkCapability(){ this.getClass(); } @Override public CompoundTag serializeNBT() { CompoundTag nbt = new CompoundTag(); nbt.putString(SAVED_ROLES, this.savedRoles); nbt.putString(SAVED_POINTS, this.savedPoints); nbt.putString(VILLAGE_NAME, this.villageName); return nbt; } public void deserializeNBT(CompoundTag tag) { this.setVillageName(tag.getString(VILLAGE_NAME)); this.setSavedRoles(tag.getString(SAVED_ROLES)); this.setSavedPoints(tag.getString(SAVED_POINTS)); } public String getVillageName() { return this.villageName; } public void setVillageName(String str) { this.villageName = str; } public void setSavedRoles(String str) { this.savedRoles = str; } public void setRole(String name, String role){ if(!this.hasRole(name)) { this.savedRoles += (name + ":" + role + ","); this.savedPoints += (name + ":" + 10 + ","); return; } String roleName = this.getRole(name); String firstStr = this.savedRoles.substring(0, this.savedRoles.indexOf(name + ":") + name.length() + 1); String lastStr = this.savedRoles.substring(this.savedRoles.indexOf(name + ":") + ((name.length() + 1) + roleName.length())); this.savedRoles = firstStr + role + lastStr; } public String getRole(String name){ if(this.savedRoles.isEmpty() || !this.savedRoles.contains(name)) { this.setRole(name, Roles.Role.FOREIGNER.getName()); } String fStr = this.savedRoles.substring(this.savedRoles.indexOf(name + ":"), this.savedRoles.indexOf(',')); return fStr.substring(fStr.indexOf(':') + 1); } public boolean hasRole(String name) { if(this.savedRoles.isEmpty()) return false; return this.savedRoles.contains(name); } public String getSavedRoles() { return this.savedRoles; } public String getSavedPoints() { return this.savedPoints; } public void setSavedPoints(String name) { this.savedPoints = name; } public int getPoints(String name) { if(this.savedPoints.isEmpty() || !this.savedRoles.contains(name)) this.setPoints(name, 10); String fStr = this.savedPoints.substring(this.savedPoints.indexOf(name + ':')); return Integer.parseInt(fStr.substring(fStr.indexOf(':') + 1, fStr.indexOf(','))); } public void setPoints(String name, int rV) { if(!this.hasPoints(name)){ this.savedPoints += (name + ":" + rV + ","); return; } String oldPoints = String.valueOf(this.getPoints(name)); String points = String.valueOf(rV); String firstStr = this.savedPoints.substring(0, this.savedPoints.indexOf(name + ":") + name.length() + 1); String lastStr = this.savedPoints.substring(this.savedPoints.indexOf(name + ":") + ((name.length() + 1) + oldPoints.length())); Minecraft.getInstance().player.displayClientMessage(Component.nullToEmpty("Saved String: " + (firstStr + points + lastStr)), false); this.savedPoints = (firstStr + points + lastStr); } public boolean hasPoints(String name) { if(this.savedPoints.isEmpty()) return false; return this.savedPoints.contains(name); } }   Heres where I attach/register: @Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = Main.MODID) public class CapabilityEvents { @SubscribeEvent public static void attachCapability(AttachCapabilitiesEvent<LevelChunk> event){ ChunkCapProvider provider = new ChunkCapProvider(); event.addCapability(ChunkCapability.ID, provider); event.addListener(provider::invalidate); } }  
    • Id use this ServerLevel#findNearestMapFeature  
    • Trying to play with the mods: Tinkers Construct, Buildcraft and the Blood Magic addon Blood Arsenal; the game crashes. I noticed that when trying to use only two of the three in any combination the game opens without problems, but when trying to put all three together the error occurs. Is there any configuration I can modify or any other way to solve the problem?   ---- Minecraft Crash Report ---- // Hi. I'm Minecraft, and I'm a crashaholic.
