today I figured I should install minecraft back and grab all my usual mods to it, including Industrialcraft 1.106. So much has changed since v1.90 and I'm absolutely baffled about all the new things you need to do in order to get the mod working.
Mainly installing forge is giving me a headache (so far), it used to be a drag and drop installation but now it requires me to use MCP (don't even know what it stands for).
Granted, I'm not the most techy guy you could find, but usually I get my way around... Not this time.
After copying the fresh server.jar and /%appdata%/.minecraft/bin and resources folders into the jars folder of mcp and starting the forge install, everything installs just fine. When I use the startclient.bat minecraft starts just fine and I can see it loading forge and modloader in the cmd, however once I copy my industrialcraft to the mods folder, minecraft refuses to start, just a black screen with bunch of errors in the cmd screen.
To make things even more complicated, once I move the modified jars back to .minecraft folder, they work like they don't have forge/modloader applied. Needless to say industrialcraft isn't loading either.
Guess there's been other threads about this aswell, but I couldn't manage to find them.
I must be doing something seriously wrong, since I don't think the install is really this hard.
