Well I suppose I must be doing something wrong (Duh right?) because when I try to install mods, it doesn't work. Not sure how I got my BioSphere one to work, I remember having to do something funny but not exactly what that was :/ After fiddling with my Minecraft for about an hour, and Bing not helping, I decided to ask here.
I need to Install... want, to install the Legend of Notch reincarnation rpg mod for 1.6.4. What I do to achieve this:
Put the world required in my saves folder. That works fine as far as the map. I'm in the city and can walk around etc, but of course it's just the map, theres none of the special features for the mod.
That's where the actual Mod comes to play. So it tells me to drag it into my Minecraft.jar but the wiki clearly isn't updated as for 1.7.2 launcher, it is different. (I have half a mind to try and find the old launcher...)
I copy the 1.6.4 folder (I already selected it and played a bit of it before so it was already in my versions folder)
I renamed everything I'm supposed to, to 1.6.4-LoN. The .jar, the JSON, and the "1.6.4" in notepad in the JSON file. so everything is renamed as I see on youtube/bing to rename it.
I move the mod folders into the jar file using WinRAR and delete the META.INF file
Then I go to my launcher, I've tried both Edit and new profile, selected the 1.6.4-LoN version and click play. All good so far right? No. :/ My launcher closed for a very short second, and opened. More, it blinked away then back, and nothing happened. No crash report, no game. The launcher just closed and opened in a fraction of a second, doing nothing else.
