4 If your mod file is zip file after downloading it from the web Don't extract it. drag the zip file into the "mods" folder. However, if the zip file contains jar file, you only need to drag the jar file inside instead of the zip file.

5 Open your minecraft launcher again (Make sure that you have set up your Forge profile If you haven't then read Part 3 again). You can click "Play" to start the download of additional libraries. Once it is done you can begin playing your mod game. It was loaded and everything is current. All I see is the launch screen. What can I do?

Dedicate more RAM and, if that doesn't work, delete your system32 file (even when it says there's a possibility of corruption). Then, restart your computer. Thanks! Yes No Not Helpful 22 Useful 5
