I don't want to do your Adfly.

Okay here is the link after Adfly.

The download is stuck at 100%

This is an issue where your browser's download scanner is stalled, try a different one.

Specifically, try using Edge instead of Chrome.

My antivirus says the installer is a virus. Is it a virus?

No.

Here is the source code which you can build for yourself.

Here is the clean VirusTotal scan for the installer .jar.

Here is the scan for the .exe. It triggers McAfee only, since it is a jar that downloads and installs files (which is the entire point).

I'm on Mac and Finder won't let me open the installer

Opening the installer on Mac

I have downloaded your installer. What do I do with it?

Run it. Don't drag it into Minecraft, don't open it with Winrar, don't add it as a Forge mod (Yes, people do all of these quite commonly.). If you got the .exe, run the .exe. If you got the .jar, run the .jar.

I have downloaded a jar. I don't care that it's called installer. My instincts are telling me to put it in .minecraft/mods and I can't control myself!!

I'm sorry I can't help you with that. See previous question.

I have opened your installer jar with WinRAR and I am determined to make this work without installing Java

Have fun

Where did the Baritone drop-down menu go? It used to be in the installer. Is Baritone no longer included?

Baritone is still included absolutely. All that was removed was your option to choose a specific Baritone version, as that was causing problems. (it just forces the latest release, which you should have done anyway)

Forge?

Minecraft 1.12.2 w/ Impact 4.6 or 4.7.* only. Use the installer.

MultiMC?

Here.

Liteloader?

Here.

How do I donate?

Here.

Where is changelog? How do I know what is new?

Here.

👶😭 I don't want to run your installer can I just have the json/jar?

For licensing reasons the jar must be built at install time, the combined binary can't be up for download.

None of that helped me =(

Ask in #help on the discord.
