Adding mods that use installers (HELP PLEASE)

Recommended Posts

So, I'm trying to make a private pack for a handful of friends (seeing as some of the mods used won't allow me to make a public pack).

I've gotten the pack running fine, however I keep trying to add Gulliver and having problems. I've tried extracting the mod and dragging the contents in the modpack.jar, but when I do that and try to run the pack, it starts up then immediately exits to the launcher again. No official crash or crash report otherwise I would include it here.

If someone knows what's going on PLEASE help me. Also general knowledge on adding installer mods would be appreciated for future reference so I'm not asking the same question next time.

there's always a log.

Error logs can be found when clicking the Cog-Wheel button on the top right corner on the launcher window.
If you can't open the launcher the logs can also be found inside %appdata% -> Roaming -> .technic -> logs

Paste the content on pastebin.com or paste.ubuntu.com and give the link.

Never use them. They are from illegitimate sites. Normal mod downloads are never installers.

Safe places for mod downloads: Minecraftforum, Curse, CurseForge

Gulliver, from the official and original minecraft forum download page, uses an installer. I appreciate the concern though.

Yep, this is massive so something definitely went wrong. Sorry I'm quite new at this.

You are using Java 8 update 40 with Forge 965, these are incompatible. A newer version of forge was released for 1.6.4 that fixed this issue so you can either downgrade java versions (not recommended) or update forge (heavily recommended). At the time of writing this cloudflares services were down so I was unable to grab a fresh version of forge to test this but it is most likely the issue. Also on the authors mod page he says you need to include this line in the jvm args 

-Dfml.ignorePatchDiscrepancies=true

This is fairly simple to do in vanilla but a little more complicated to add to a modpack download. In vanilla you simple click "Edit profile" checks the "JVM Arguments" box and add it at the end. If you need help adding it to a modpack let me know

Yes I need help with the JMV args.

No other work around for the Java? One of the mods (Gulliver I think) said it specifically needed the version of forge I was using. I can test it with another version though.

AFAIK forge 1345 for 1.6.4 only changed the java issue and nothing else so it should be compativle with gulliver, you could also just downgrade your java to 8 update 11. Let me know how that goes and I will get back with the JVM args

      So I made a modpack, and it works, however, I also made a server package, that doesn't work.
      I followed some tutorials on the internet and none of them fixed the issue.
      Here's my log

      So I created a 1.7.10 kitchen sink pack. It is 60mb and worked when I was play testing it from my mc launcher with forge. Now that I compressed it into a modpack, when I download it from the technic launcher, it just starts 1.7.10 without any of the mods installed. 
      I don't know what to do.
      Here's a link to the modpack page: https://www.technicpack.net/modpack/sickcoolradpack.1285145
      Here's the download link: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/9phcgq2z1cf9lfn/sickcoolradpack.zip
       
      Please help!

      Dear Technic and Tekkit community,
      I have recently tried re-installing and playing on the Technic launcher again and have been unable to successfully play any modpacks.  I've tried a few unofficial modpacks without any luck, but am most interested in playing Tekkit, specifically... unfortunately it will not 'Play' either. 
      I have the Technic launcher open, I press 'Play' on the Tekkit modpack, the program appears to be loading, then the launcher pops back up and no modpack launches.
      I have attached a copy of the Technic Console Log:  Tekkit Launch - Error report Also, I've attached the crash report: crash-2017-04-13_10.33.41-client.txt If anyone can offer help or suggestions for a solution, it would be greatly appreciated!  I love vanilla minecraft as well, but have been hankering for something more lately...
      Cheers

      Hi all.
      I have been playing technic for a few years, but finally got an account on the forums today becuase I encountered a serious issue trying to add bukkit plugins to my server.
      Im following this guide:
       
      I get to the part where I have downloaded the cauldron installer correctly, opened libraries, gone to the sf folder but its missing an important file called:  trove4j
      Without this file it doesnt work. Can someone reply a link to 1.7.10 cauldron with all the correct files needing to make this server have bukkit plugins? 
      The cauldron files I can find on the internet are incomplete and missing this file.
      Thanks guys!
