How to install Forge ModLoader (client) in Minecraft:

For 1.7.9 and 1.6.4:

  • Open the installer jar file, it will automatically install FML.

For 1.5.2 and below, read the instructions below:

  1. Download the FML mod zip file from the link above.
  2. Open Start Menu, type %appdata%/.minecraft/bin and press Enter.
  3. You’ll see Minecraft.jar file, right-click and open it up with WinRAR/7zip etc.
  4. Now open the mod zip file with same WinRAR (refer to Step #1)
  5. Drag and Drag FML zip file contents (files and folders) into the root of Minecraft.jar
  6. Delete META-INF folder in Jar to avoid blackscreen problem.
  7. Run Minecraft to check the installation.

Tips and Warnings

  • If possible, use a fresh copy of Minecraft to install FML
  • If you’re installing it on a server copy the files in Minecraft_Server.jar instead.
  • Make a backup of your world saves and jar before install.

    • Its by the minecraft forge have another “META-INF” inside, remove the META-INF in the minecraft forge carpet and enjoy!

  • Gets stuck on ‘Hello’ screen. I then tried 685 instead of 686 and still got the same screen. 🙁

  • well the thing is that forge keeps updating to get the right version for that minecraft mod version. i would suggest:
    1. check to see if mod is 1.5.2
    2. check to see if your minecraft is 1.5.2
    3. delete everything that is minecraft related off of your computer then re-install it
    4. look for some videos about it

    or your just SOL

  • dude delete the mod and install it again if the screen is black click the force button

  • When I open minecraft it said setting up environment then goes black.

  • i install the forge mod loader then i run minecraft but the ‘hello’ said :That Was A Fatal Error To Starting Minecraft….pls help
    i already delete the META-INF

  • How to download / install(Whatever you wanna call it)

    1.Go to your minecraft and click options and click force update.(This will COMPLETELY refresh your minecraft…meaning mods will be gone)

    2.Go to %appdata%/roaming/.minecraft/ minecraft.jar with winrar(its minecraft only actually)then go to ur FML(Forgemodloader) and drag all the files there to the minecraft.jar file and delete META-INF.

    3.Open minecraft and ENJOY!

    • I did wat you said, baut there is the black screen when I open the client.
      I suppose the problem is for the version, I have 1.5.2, but I don’t know.

    • 1. this is minecraft 1.6.4,it has no force update!

      2. some of us don’t have minecraft.jar and we play completely fine

  • if you are having problems getting it to work, open the META-INF file in the original minecraft.jar and only delete the two files with mojang in their name. It should work after that.

  • I know how to install just put the zip into the .minecraft’s mods folder just by clicking the start button then tye %appdata% then click enter
    the first thing should be .minecraft

  • Thanks it worked!!!!
    Worked with all mods using forge!
    I just needed to delete meta-inf.

    • I found it I did everything that you wrote down and it still says that I havent got fml installed

  • is it possible to use this mode with magic launcher, and if it is how do i get it to work correctly?

  • it crashes before mojang logo. why? i have tried it so many times! i am trying to update it! i have deleted 1.6.2 forge too. please help!

  • When ever i open it. It says installion complete but whenever i open minecraft 1.6.4 it says i can not join the server because i don’t have fml and im like I JUST DOWLOADED IT!

    • it needs to not be minecraft 1.6.4 go into edit profile at launcher screen and select minecraft version and then click on numbers that go on forever

  • While i was installing the client It says “Error Downloading These libraries failed to download ora-sgalang:org scala (bla bla bla)” How can i fix this? Please help 🙁

  • Everybody, i think this may work, you just delete the META-INF in the minecraft.jar before installing Forge, then you install Forge, another META-INF will appear in minecraft.jar after you install Forge, that
    META-INF is for Forge. so just don’t replace the META-INF.

  • When ever I install and try to get on a server that requires FML it says I don’t have it installed even when I click install client and hit “Ok”
