I will start this off by admitting that I am a complete idiot and I honestly have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.
A couple of my friends and I thought it might be fun to play modded minecraft together, but there were only a few specific mods we wanted and we didn't want to join another big, public server. I suggested that I could try to boot up a small modded server for our little group, so I started to research more to see if this was possible- and I think it is?
I've followed a few tutorials and got as far as this:
Which is honestly a miracle in itself considering as stated before, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.
I'm now at a barrier however as whenever I try to boot up the forge jar, it crashes. I've studied the crash report but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for, which is how I ended up here.
If my system requirements aren't up to scratch etc I completely understand and I'll be on my way, but if any of you lovely people are able to help me and my fellow weeaboo friends play some modded minecraft together I will be incredibly greatful! <3
