So I am clearly a noob at this because I cannot get this to work for the life of me.
I first install and run a Minecraft server. Then I grab the Minecraft Forge Installer and install the server. I then go grab the server version of the experimental 1.8 IC2 and place it in the mod folder. I do the same thing for the client side. The server starts fine and seems to grab the mod. "ML has found a non-mod file industrialcraft-2-client_1.337b.jar in your mods directory. It will now be injected into your classpath. This could severe stability issues, it should be removed if possible." The server does state that, however, the server starts up without error. I get on Minecraft and join the server and all goes well except for the fact that it appears IC2 didn't actually load.
What am I doing wrong in this? I just want a personal server with IC2 running on it!
