Here's an odd one. I am using Forge 18.104.22.168 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 22.214.171.124 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 126.96.36.199 and that fixed it. I went off of the version on Minecraft Forge which shows 188.8.131.52 as the latest recommended build. Finally dug out the Jenkins link which shows 184.108.40.206 as the latest recommended. So... Thanks guys!
