Forge jar file not opening


Recommended Posts

Hello,

i tried to install forge on my pc over the last couple of days. However, I can't get it to work. What double clicking nother happens, not even using the "open with" method. Most times a black box flashes for a millisecond. When looking at the task bar i do notice that it is the java program that is opening and closing.

 

Heres what I tried so far:

Updating java to newest version

Changing to different version of jav

Using the command prompt

Using powershell

Giving myself admin access

 

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? 

 

Thankful for all the help I can get!

download winrar https://www.rarlab.com/download.htm and click english 64 bit

This is the exact thing that will not help you here.

In fact WinRAR especially likes to say "hey I open Jar files", when it has no business doing so.

 

Some zip managers like to take control of the .jar file extension away from Java.
Make sure you have Java installed and try running Jarfix once, then try the installer again.

I ran Jarfix and then tried installing again with the same results. Nothing happening

I even tried using winrar, but as you said nothing happened

Run the installer from the command line and post the output.

    • So I had no clue what topic to put this under because its not really modding with forge but modding forge itself. So I have terrain generation mods that are only server side and Bungeecord that has Geyser packet translator so people on bedrock edition can play as well, but when a bedrock player connects it gets a unknown packet error. I tested the proxy on a Spigot server verifying it was forge. With no mods installed I still get the error. I got a wireshark log of it all and I found the packet where it aborts the connection due to the invalid packet but I have no clue how to stop it. When I still had the mods installed I disabled the forge handshake protocol but it did not fix the issue. If you know what part of forge is doing this or a way to fix it all together that would be awesome. I know modifying forge can end really baddy (definitely the handshake protocol) but I think that is my only fix here. Im open to any suggestions tho. I have run out of ideas to fix it so any help would be nice. Also it seems the packet id causing the connection error is 0xFE but im not sure cause the client also sends back a packet with that ID. I have a whole bunch of info collected so if you need any more information on the issue, I willing to give it, just not the ips on the wireshark log.
    • Okay, I got it working correctly now, but I'm not sure how to make it work with multiple blocks.   My Block Code:   package expanded.blocks; import javax.annotation.Nullable; import expanded.VanillaBuildingBlocks; import net.minecraft.block.BlockState; import net.minecraft.block.RotatedPillarBlock; import net.minecraft.entity.player.PlayerEntity; import net.minecraft.item.ItemStack; import net.minecraft.util.math.BlockPos; import net.minecraft.world.World; import net.minecraftforge.common.ToolType; public class CustomLog extends RotatedPillarBlock {            public CustomLog(Properties properties) {         super(properties);     }      @Override     @Nullable     public BlockState getToolModifiedState(BlockState state, World world, BlockPos pos, PlayerEntity player, ItemStack stack, ToolType toolType) {         return toolType == ToolType.AXE ? VanillaBuildingBlocks.acacia_log.defaultBlockState() : null;     } }
    • ? Registering the block and overriding a function inside the class are two completely different things
    • Ya but I'm not sure how I would actually add/implement it into the class correctly, and then registering the block correctly in my register class.
    • This tutorial from 1.12.2 is as easy as anyone could possibly explain it, it hasn't changed much til now except some slight changes here and there for you to figure out, it's pretty straightforward (https://www.planetminecraft.com/blog/forge-tutorial-capability-system/). Obviously instead of mana you'd just replace it with whatever else you're doing. All a capability is in essence is the ability to serialize/deserialize standard data types to an entity. When the player dies the game creates a new instance of a PlayerEntity object so your data won't automatically "transfer" over to that new object unless as you say, you copy the data over in an event hook. After you have this set up, if you want to access the data you store in player capabilities you create a class with a static get function that retrieves it.
