Forge API for Minecraft 1.7.9/1.7.2

Minecraft Forge API Minecraft Forge API for 1.7.2/1.7.3/1.7.4 is a must have mod (application layer) for almost every Minecraft player. Minecraft FORGE API is a custom tool which prevents two or more mods to collide/conflict with each other so they can’t crash your game. There are many mods out there which utilize files with similar names or code but Forge built-in ModLoader assigns them different ID’s so they can be recognized and installed properly thus keeping you away from compatibility issues.

      Yes, it does. shortly before the 1.6 update I was playing 1.5.2 with Forge, Optifine, Rei’s Minimap, Inventory Tweaks, Timber! and Mutant-creatures mod installed.

    Guys, here is a common mistake list: 1. did not delete META-INF 2. did not install it first 3. did not use it on a fresh .jar 4. did not get the LATEST forge 5. installed it with the text files still inside the file 6. didnt run minecraft after installation. There you go, the top 6 fails.

      Here’s the problem
      1. No more .bin so no META-INF
      2. Install what?!
      3. There is no way to start a new or “Fresh .jar”
      4. This is the latest forge
      5. What text files?!
      6. What if the installation dosen’t work??

    I have downloaded and installed mine craft forge, after this was done i ran it.
    Got a report 3 mods loaded. OK
    I have since added other 1.7.2 mods in
    to the mods folder, but they are nor recognized at all, still only 3 mods.
    Please tell me what is different from 1.7.2 and 1.6.4 which loads the mods I add with no problems.
    Thank you

    I am using a mac. Unfortunately there is no mod pack for the mac. The ways that people tell you to download this don’t work on the mac. FML is there any way to play mine craft with a couple mods, or does anyone know (through honest experience) a way to download this app?

    , with all of my knowledge of the defeirfnt shortcuts, I have never been able to take a game to completion, much less in 48 hours. This says to me that there is something else to this equation that I have missed.To take the analogy to music. You are arguing that technique of an instrument is more important than knowledge of musical theory. That somehow knowing how to do hammer ons and pull offs could make people better guitar players. This is a trap I fell in when learning guitar.
