Hello. My concerns began when I attempted to download and use the Spider Queen mod (version 1.7.10, since I downloaded every other program under the mod folder to be that version). After a rather stressful session of trying to find the issue, I believe my concerns lie with the Forge mod, as my "mod" button does not exist, only "minecraft realms".
Under the mods folder, I have downloaded (keep in mind, each of these are version 1.7.10):
Forge Installer (ran the program aswell, creating a second text file next to it)
MCA mod installer (despite not being sure if I truly needed it for Spider Queen, also ran program)
MCA (see above)
As already mentioned, due to complete absence of the mod button, I suspect the Forge program is not working, despite being deleted, reinstalled, installed on other folders, aswell as having used newer versions (before deleting the failed attempts). I am sure I have installed the Forge program correctly, as I have chosen the "client" when running the installer and I even have a "Forge" profile when starting the game, version 1.7.10 selected under it. Is there any reason why it still doesn't appear on my menu when playing the game? I've tried looking up forums with similar issues but all of them were solved at points I either have no issue with or I plainly don't recieve the same result as the original poster. If I can't solve this, I probably won't be able to run any sort of Forge mod.
Thank you for taking the time to read
EDIT: the issue has been resolved in person. Ignore this.
