Have ever noticed that when you place a furnace on SMP and disconnect, it's not facing the right way when you come back? Or you build a trap with a dispenser and now it seems to be facing the wrong way, so you test it and get a face full of arrows? You are in luck, because the Appliance Repair Man is here to help.
Can you make a non-TFC version? I mean a manual install version. Every time I install a mod like Mo's Creatures with TFC, it always, ALWAYS crashes minecraft.
Theres no need for a non TFC version. ALL these mods can be added in manually.
Just go to you minecaft.jar file, open it up in winrar, open the mod files, and drag and drop the files into it, following the mods instructions on where in the minecraft.jar file they should go (most it's just grab files, drag into main location in the jar)
Thats how I installed Mo's Creatures, and any other mod I mess with. I never bother with these installers that pretty much just do the same thing you'd do if you manually added them.
Just back up you minecaft.jar file before messing with it, or if you forgot, when you start minecraft just tell it to force update and bam, a fresh unaltered copy of the jar file.
