Here's an odd one. I am using Forge 220.127.116.11 with IC 1.95B, loaded up fine, so I closed Minecraft, moved the block Ids for all the non-generated stuff (Left the ores and tree stuff in the 200s) up to the 400s and Minecraft loads fine, create a new world, and peek at NEI and see my machines are all now tiles that can't be placed in world. WTH? O.o I read that with Forge 18.104.22.168 includes not only Modloader / Audiomod but the 4096 bug fix so this should be working in theory, what did I break? O.o
Edit: Ok, updated to Forge 22.214.171.124 and that fixed it. I went off of the version on Minecraft Forge which shows 126.96.36.199 as the latest recommended build. Finally dug out the Jenkins link which shows 188.8.131.52 as the latest recommended. So... Thanks guys!
