[1.7.2] New recipes, anyone? (NEI doesn't work)

  • I foolishly decided to try 1.7.2 with IC2 and Buildcraft. Everything is peachy except... I cannot force NEI to work, not even a little bit. It crashes my minecraft even before the Mojang screen.

    I'm still determined to play, but I need some recipes. I've tried to search the forums, but "metal former recipe" yields tones of posts ranting about the old wires vs the new wires and things like that...

    So, if anyone would be kind enough and simply write here the recipe for metal former, I would be eternally grateful. All I remember is it requires 2 toolboxes.

    If you can think of anything else required at early stage, that is different than the classic IC2, write that, too :D

  • It seems I had the same problem with NEI. I am on a mac. What I had to do is download java 7 and manually change the java system folder that Minecraft uses because java 7 installed in a different directory entirely. To change the folder you edit the minecraft profile you play on and I think change some directory in the second to last text box thing. a more detailed explanation is on the third to last page (from 2 weeks ago) of the main NEI page comment/thread section. http://www.minecraftforum.net/…64-smp-chickenbones-mods/

    Also i use http://ftbwiki.org/ for recipes when NEI cant tell me what I need to know.
    good luck
