In this short article, we will be looking at the error “forge mod loader has found a problem with your Minecraft installation” and why this error occurs. We will be also looking at what are the steps that can be taken to minimize or fix this error.
Why Does This Error Occur
While playing Minecraft with the mods, you might have seen your game crashing many times and giving this error. This error usually occurs when you are using some faulty mod.
Such types of errors can also occur when your forge/ mod launcher is not able to load some mod completely. Mostly, this error comes with the name of the faulty mod that has some issues with it. E.g.:
The mods and version listed below could not be found
This error means that the mod named Baubles has some issues. Most of the time when the issue or error is known it also give show the error such as the minimum version required is 1.12.3 etc.
In the case of multiple mods having the problem it sometimes doesn’t show the name of the mod that has the problem. It also says the line: The file ‘logs/fml-client-latest.log’ contains more information. So, you can go to the location where you have saved Minecraft and then go to the logs folder and open the fml-client-latest.org file using any of the text editors.
This file has the details of all the faulty mods with their problems.
How to Fix this Error
Fixing this error is as easy as finding what the error exactly is and with what mod it occurs. Firstly, we have to find the mod that has the problem.
If the problem is with the multiple mods, then delete the previously downloaded version of the forge mod loader and replace it with the newer one. You can get the latest forge file from here:
After downloading the latest version of forge, restart your game.
If the problem is with the Forge Mod Loader then the problem will be fixed, and it will load the mods without giving any error. But if it proceeds to give the same error again then the problem is with mods. If it shows the name of a particular mod.
If the problem is with some particular mod then open your Mods folder and delete that mod and get the latest version of that mod. If the error says something like the minimum version required is ___ then you can download that version and replace it with the older one and the mod will be running, and the error will be fixed.
There is one more common error that can occur which is ‘you have mod sources that are duplicate within your system’. This error can occur when you have downloaded different versions of the same mod. Such mods can make the system detect multiple mods with the same name and functioning and thus give the error.
Such errors can be fixed by deleting the extra mod files named the same as others. These were all the possible errors that can occur and the steps that can be taken to reduce the occurrence of such errors or fix them.
