For Minecraft 1.6.x

  • Copy all your texture packs into that folder.
  • Enjoy switching between texture packs without repatching the game!

Installing Forge and/or LiteLoader with MCPatcher:

The process for installing Forge/LiteLoader is different.

  • Close MCPatcher for these first steps.
  • Download the Forge/LiteLoader installer for the corresponding version of Minecraft. NOTE: In the past, these instructions told you to download the universal jar file. This has changed as of MCPatcher 4.2.2.
  • Run the installer as usual. If using LiteLoader and you want to chain to Forge, select the appropriate option in the LiteLoader installer.
  • Start the launcher and run the game once with the Forge/LiteLoader profile just created. This will ensure the necessary libraries are downloaded.
  • Close the game and start MCPatcher.
  • From the Game Version drop-down menu, choose the Forge/LiteLoader version that was just created. For example, 1.6.x-Forge9.10.0.804 or LiteLoader1.6.x.
  • For Forge versions, an extra Minecraft Forge entry will appear in the MCPatcher mods tab, but nothing extra will be added for LiteLoader. This is normal.
  • Click Patch.
  • Click Test Minecraft, or close MCPatcher and run the launcher, making sure that the correct profile (e.g., MCPatcher) and version (e.g., 1.6.x-Forge9.10.0.804-mcpatcher) are selected.

Note: FML will produce many errors during startup complaining about binary discrepancies. These are due to the fact that Forge and MCPatcher modify the same classes and can be safely ignored.

Installing Forge with MCPatcher:
