Running Forge

Post by JackBlades » Sun Oct 30, 2016 6:52 pm

Hello,

I am trying to run Forge, forge-1.10.2-12.18.1.2095-universal.

I have selected the forge-1.10.2-12.18.1.2095-universal.jar file to start the server with via the control panel.

The server doesn't start and I get several error messages on the console window. There is no messages in the log folder.
The error messages are:

Code: Select all

A problem occurred running the Server launcher.java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

How can I get this to work?

Thanks

From what I'm reading with the results on Google, it looks like you need to upload the corresponding Minecraft server .jar to the same folder as your Forge .jar, as it tries to load it. If it can't load it, that log4j apparently shows.

Thanks for the quick reply Edge100x!

I saw the same thing online. I actually have the minecraft server jar right next to the Forge jar. I downloaded that jar from https://launcher.mojang.com/mc/game/1.1 ... server.jar which is the latest 1.10.2 server jar on https://mcversions.net/#1.10.2

I have tried that file as server.jar and even renamed it to minecraft-server.jar with no luck each time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone have any idea? Anyone ever install forge on their NFO server?

Did you first run it locally? Forge needs certain libraries to be downloaded and it seems to not always download them in a headless environment.

Yes, I have run it locally successfully. I understand Forge needs certain libraries, how do I make sure the NFO servers have these dependencies?

If anyone has installed Forge on an NFO server before I'd love to hear how they did it.

If it ran, and launched successfully locally, all you should need to do is upload the directory where it lives (excluding server.properties) to your server and then try starting it. Depending on the version of MC you are running, you MAY need to set the java version to 8 on your Server Control panel. I have ran Forge modpacks successfully on our shared hosting as parts of my testing and when helping customers.
