Installing Forge

  • Install Forge for your version of Minecraft, which must match the server.
  • The server is currently running version 1.12.2 of Minecraft [Forge v1.12.2-14.23.2.2654]
  • Load your Minecraft launcher and select "forge 1.12.2-forge-1.12.2-14.23.2.2654"
  • Launch this version once to check it's functioning correctly. Assuming it it, move on. If it isn't, you'll have to debug that issue yourself.
  • Close Minecraft.

Great, now Forge is working. We can move on to installing the mods.

Installing OptiFine

  • Get OptiFinefor Minecraft version 1.12.2 [OptiFine.net | direct 1.12.2 jar download ].
  • Run the OptiFine_*_HD_U_*.jar jar file.
  • Choose "Extract".
  • Navigate to the %appdata%/.minecraft/mods folder.
  • Should get the message "OptiFine is successfully extracted". If you get an error, you skipped something above/have the wrong version of Minecraft installed.
  • Open your Minecraft launcher
  • Make sure "forge" is still selected in the Profile dropdown and launch the game.

Note: if you have previously installed OptiFine you'll need to navigate to the %appdata%/.minecraft/mods folder and remove all but the latest version.
