Error cannot access jarfile forge.jar


#1

Hello everyone~ I’ve been trying to make a modded server with a few plugins and i found this turtorial


I followed the first few steps but when it came time to try and run the server for the first time i got an erro message saying it couldn’t access the jar file. I’ve looking in the comment section and tried every suggestion that was posted for this problem most of them saying to rename the “forge.jar” to “forgeno.jar” or variations of it and none of it has worked. I’m not sure where i went wrong or maybe the tutorial simply doesn’t work anymore because it’s from so long ago. If anyone can help I’d apreciate it and sorry for all the trouble

#2

Can you please post screenshots, console output, and logs (if they exist)?

-edit- versions would also be nice to know too


#3

My sponge version is
spongeforge-1.12.2-2705-7.1.0-BETA-3206
My forge version is
forge-1.12.2-14.23.4.2705-universal
6a42d4e8c48bbcd603802d6f342875c4


#4

this is a screenshot of the folder in general that it’s all in. The tutorial told me to rename the forge to “forge.jar” by the way.

and as for the logs there are only two but i’m not completely sure if they will help but i’ll post them here anyway in case they do. Also as a preface I have already agreed to the eula

#5

what command is running from the start.bat?


#6

This is what the tutorial advised to use so i just copy and pasted it from the discription of the video

@echo off
java -Xmx1024M -jar forge.jar -o true
PAUSE


#7

#8

I have agreed to the eula multiple times, I even went back and unagreed saved and reagreed again and it server still won’t load. I’ve tried remaking the server multiple times and each time I make sure to agree to the eula but it doesn’t help, that’s one of the many reasons as to why i’m lost on what to do.


#9

oh.

In file explorer, click View > Options > Change folder and search options > View, and then uncheck Hide extensions for known file types. Then click OK and you will see the problem with your forge jarfile.


#10

Pff… I’m a little embarrassed I didn’t catch that Pie…
@Sweetsnow_neko you renamed your jar file to forge.jar.jar on accident.


#11

In the folder itself it says that I named it forge.jar so if I follow the steps pie gave me and rename it from there will that fix the problem ?


#12

Yes it should work then.


#13

Thank you guys soooooo much, the server is finally loading. :grinning:
