How to install Forge: For Players
Go to the Forge website 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 Latest 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!
