Modpack when i download it is defaulting to a fresh forge install with no mods.


Recommended Posts

So I have been working on a modpack of mine lately, recently switched computers to a higher end one, and here I am working on the first update I have done for this modpack since I got the new pc. I make sure to test to make sure all the mods work together in a test pack, and then I decide to zip up the mods,scripts(for crafttweaker), llibrary, coremods, config, cache, bin, and the .mixin.out folder into one neat folder like I have done in the past. So here i go and upload the folder onto dropbox and test downloading the update through the technic launcher, instead of the name of the folder, it starts downloading a folder with the name of the version it is on the website, and when I launch it, it is just a fresh install of forge with none of the mods or anything. I don't know what went wrong in the process, but I need some help. Here's the DL Link and the modpack link.

TLDR; It is defaulting to a fresh install of forge with no mods even though I have done the exact same thing I did in the past.

First question: Why is it 1.2 GB? Probably because you are including the cache folder, which you shouldn't. (And ofcourse, you have your old modpack versions in there. Don't do that, that causes MASSIVE unneeded modpack bloat)

Second question: Why am I seeing all kinds of files in the bin folder? I should only see the forge installer, renamed to modpack.jar. Not files indicating that its already installed, since that won't work.

Last one: Why are you including your own old crash-reports?

Second question is your issue btw.

Okay, First off, thanks so much for pointing out the cache files and the old versions, I have now fixed that.
I also fixed the bin folder with the modpack.jar and such and got rid of the crash-reports.
But it is still defaulting to a fresh forge install? Any ideas? DL: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r48h60ffnnpkbij/EOI 0.2.1.zip?dl=1

As a Modpack creator. I too have had my issues with this. When it did happen It was always because I forgot some files. I looked at your dropbox and looked at what you had.
I downloaded your pack and put it in a clean 1.12.2 Forge Install. Took a look at console, such and such. 
In the console logs of technic, When I launched your pack it recognized you had mods. But it didn't load any of them until I got a fresh forge install
Configs for the mods at the moment flagged the console MANY time upon startup with errors, about potentially dangerous item naming.
You may want to change some item ID's around. 
I know the forge issue wasn't my fault because I deleted the clean 1.12.2 and replaced it with your modpack.jar itself. 
So I guess in essence.. Reinstall forge? and if that doesnt work, hell I'll just zip this entire thing and send it to you cuz I just killed a dragon and witnessed a tornado

      I was planning on using some mods, but when I opened the modpack I intended to use, it just shut down and sent me back to the launcher screen. 
      I've tried removing the mods, uninstalling and reinstalling the modpack, updating my launcher, updating java, and restarting my computer, to no avail.
      Down below is the log in pastebin:

      Hello, I didn't know where to put this Thread, sorry for that.
      My Problem is that i want to create more than only 5 Modpacks. I have different Packs in different Version and i need them all and i dont want to create constantly an new account just to create a new Modpack. I dont understand why this Action is limited to 5 Modpacks. It makes no sense to me. Is there any way to create more than only 5?
      Hope you can help me. ~M3veronMast3r

      Hello there. I have been fighting this issue for a while now, but now im mad enough to make a forum post about this. After 2 weeks, i still cannot find any way to solve this issue.
      I have updated windows, used DDU to delete my gpu driver, reinstalled my gpu driver, updated my bios, deleted then reinstalled every version and instance of minecraft, java and every launcher, Set the technic launcher to the newest version of java, oldest version of java. Tried running the program from an ssd, checked with another gpu, still nothing. I have sent the logs to the discord bot, but it found nothing out of the ordinary [ Im Matt Moody#0101 ]. I have no idea what is happening now.

      Last year I created 2 modpacks on 1.12.2 following advice from this post: How to make a Minecraft modpack – Platform Help Center (zendesk.com) . Today I decided to create another one and did the same things as last time, now however when I start the game on technic platform forge does not load so it just a vanilla 1.12.2, I have checked the files and everything is there. If anyone could help me I would be pleased. This is the modpack: BProjeto 1.0 - Technic Platform (technicpack.net) .
      Thanks in advance.
