  1. With the next upgrade in Minecraft and Minecraft mods progressing into 1.7.2, more and more mods are dropping support for Java 6.
    Before upgrading Java make sure your computer supports it by checking here: http://java.com/en/download/help/sysreq.xml
    Unlike Windows and Mac, major Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux offer OpenJDK as their default Java SE implementation.

    32-bit vs 64-bit and what does it mean?
    Long story short, you cannot run a computer with more memory than 4GB if you use 32-bit.
    Technic recommends using 64-bit versions of Java (if supported). This allows more memory for Minecraft to use. 
    Questions or how to check your system can be found here:
    Windows users: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/32-bit-and-64-bit-windows
    Mac users: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3696 
    Linux users: http://stackoverflow.com/a/246014

    If you are needing to upgrade your Java install, grab a copy from here http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and follow these guides:
    Windows Users:
    Check what version of Java your running by going here: http://java.com/en/download/uninstallapplet.jsp
    Or checking your installed programs by going to: Control Panel -> Programs and Features
    and following this guide: http://java.com/en/download/help/windows_offline_download.xml

    Mac Users:
    You have special requirements for installing/uninstalling Java on your computers
    Please read CLOSELY here: http://java.com/en/download/faq/java_mac.xml


    If you cannot uninstall Java 6, install Java 7 and then follow thses steps:


    • Next start the Java Preferences app from /Applications/Utilities
    • Drag Java 7 to the top of the list like in the screenshot. This will make locally run Java applications use Java 7 instead of Java 6.
    • You can uncheck the Java 6 options if you do not want them to be allowed to run.
    • This section is for the Java runtime for local applications, and has nothing to do with the web plugin.




    Linux Users:
    Ubuntu and Fedora users: http://openjdk.java.net/install/
    Red Hat, SUSE, Oracle, Oracle Enterprise, SLES users: http://java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml

    After you have installed Java 7, check to make sure it is installed here: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
    Hope this helps clear things up!


    EDIT: Add Mac instructions.

  2. Does this work with the Technic Platform/Solder, or just with the Technic Team packs?

    Currently, this only works with Technic Modpacks. However, I do wish to implement this with Platform/Solder. I started this project with that frame in mind. This will require changes to Solder which I have not had time to look into.

  3. Hey guys,


    I've been working on a little project to make updating Technic Modpack Servers a little easier. 




    This will allow server owners to directly download or "install" (unzip) modpacks to a specified directory on their servers.


    Its currently in a beta state. I thought now would be a good time to release it and get some feedback on it.


    Here are some examples of the program:


    Listing Modpacks

    [email protected]:~/Coding/Repos/ServerCore$ TechnicServerCore -ls
    Voltz ==> voltz
    Tekkit Classic ==> tekkit
    Yogbox ==> yogbox
    Hexxit ==> hexxit
    Tekkit ==> tekkitmain
    Hack Slash Mine ==> hackslashmine
    Big Dig ==> bigdig
    Attack of the B-Team ==> attack-of-the-bteam
    Tekkit Lite ==> tekkitlite
    Vanilla ==> vanilla

    Let me know what you think!

    If you have any issues with the program, please post them here:


  4. just talked to genpage and he confirmed this.  to be clear though, this isn't anything official nor is it supported in any way by us.  other than that, have fun.



    We appreciate the community trying to help us out in anyway. That being said this is not official or supported by us. Any indication that this is malicious/harmful will result in the removal of the topic and a ban.

  5. To do this you need to open up the modpack.jar and insert the launch params that you want into the versions.json. In the version.json file close to the top there will be a line that looks like this:


    "minecraftArguments": "--username ${auth_player_name} --session ${auth_session} --version ${version_name} --gameDir ${game_directory} --assetsDir ${game_assets} --tweakClass com.mumfrey.liteloader.launch.LiteLoaderTweaker --tweakClass cpw.mods.fml.common.launcher.FMLTweaker"
    Simply add the param you want passed into that line.

    So, it would look something like this:

    "minecraftArguments": "--username ${auth_player_name} --session ${auth_session} --version ${version_name} --gameDir ${game_directory} --assetsDir ${game_assets} -Dfml.ignoreInvalidMinecraftCertificates=true --tweakClass com.mumfrey.liteloader.launch.LiteLoaderTweaker --tweakClass cpw.mods.fml.common.launcher.FMLTweaker"
    "javaArguments": "<java args here>"


    While passing arguments works for -Dfml tag you need to append a new key:value pair for javaArguments


    The technic launcher doesn't really "install" and therefore does not need a package. It is just a jar file which you execute. From the command line (or a desktop link you make) you would run:

    java -jar TechnicLauncher.jar


    That is correct. The launcher uses java and is not a native linux program. 

  7. Hey guys,


    I am sorry to hear you guys got hacked and your modpack deleted. This is a good example of using secure unique passwords for different accounts.


    Bad news: @freakachu is right. It is impossible to retrieve stats/"+1" data. Your modpack was deleted. The data is gone. Zapped.


    Good news: With the coming release of the new Platform, ranking/statistics will be radically changing. The stats for packs will be reset to adopt this new system. So in theory everyone will get a fresh new start with the new system. RIP "+1"s.


    I'm sure you'll get your following back if you have dedicated players. If you guys have any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me.



  8. I made a modpack and I followed all the instructions, I uploaded it to media fire, put the link where I was supposed to, and I went to download the pack and it says I can't! I can with all other modpacks except my own and I don't know how to fix it. Please help me. :(


    You need to post logs. Click on the Cog-wheel near the red X in the upper right. Then click on the logs button and post the latest log to a paste site like (http://pastebin.com or http://paste.ubuntu.com)

  9. So, I was working on a private modpack today, and just as things started to work, this happened. 


    When I tried to launch the modpack it said.


    "Error downloading file for the following pack: (name here)


    Failed to download: (link to zip dropbox file here)


    please consult modpack author"


    Naturally, I looked at the link. it seems to me that the link is from the correct place in dropbox (share->rightclick download->copy link address), but technic doesn't seem to think so. Also, when I tried to re paste it, it said You must provide a valid link to your custom zip.

    I don't know whether it's with technic, the link, or just user error on my part, but I need some help!


    Canges dropbox made to the links now broke this. See: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

  10. It has been reported on the Tracker that Dropbox recently made a change to their direct download links that breaks the Platform/Launcher link.


    Tracker report: http://forums.technicpack.net/tracker/issue-2309-modpack-download-link-length/

    New Dropbox Link:


    What the Technic Platform saves:


    This is due to the standard length of characters a normal test field/string saves (255 characters).


    Since the new dropbox links are longer than 255 characters, it cuts off the rest of the new link.


    We are working to fix this issue. Expect a hot fix within the next day or so.
