How to install Forge: For Players

Go to and select the minecraft version you wish to get forge for from the list.

You can download the installer for the Recommended Build or the Lastest build there. Latest builds may have newer features but may be more unstable as a result. The installer will attempt to install forge into your vanilla launcher environment, where you can then create a new profile using that version and play the game!

Here is a short video from Rorax showing how to install and setup Forge.

How to install Forge: For Modders

If you wish to setup a new mod for Forge, visit and select the MDK download.

This is the Modder Developer Kit - basically, an example mod with all the tooling needed to create a Forge mod workspace ready for use in your IDE of choice.

Here is a short video from @cpw showing how to install and setup the MDK in Intellij.


How to install Forge: For those wishing to work on Forge itself

If you wish to actually inspect Forge, submit PRs or otherwise work with Forge itself, you're in the right place! Clone this (either directly, or make a Fork first if you want to make a PR) and run gradlew.bat setupForge or gradlew setupForge. This will download and setup all the bits you need to have a functional Forge workspace.

After that, open a workspace in your favorite IDE and import existing projects the projects folder.
