I will skip any introduction and just get straight to the point: I can install Forge for Minecraft, but when I run it in the MC launcher it crashes, stating it ended with a bad state (exit code 1). This same thing occurred when I used Manjaro as well. I was unable to find anything online about this problem, so I am coming to the community forums to potentially receive assistance.
When I try to install the universal version it says I am missing a few things, while the general-use installer does the install seemingly perfectly fine up until the part where MC crashes. I can run MC fine otherwise, but I would really like to play with Optifine and maybe a few mods. I haven’t played MC in at least two years, so I’d like to get it “moddable” again (I used Windows then). I would really appreciate any answers I could get!
Also, if somebody provides answers and gives me commands to plug in, please explain what they do and how they do it if you know; I really want to learn as I go along. Thank you!
