Minecraft forge 1.17.1-1.12.2 is an API mod that may be needed for some other mods that require the so-called “Minecraft forge”. For example, you can install the following most popular mods: Craft Tweaker, Mouse Tweaks and Just Enough Items. Please note that after updating the game, you must also update the Forge.
Its function is to connect modifications to a kind of universal API-Core library with additional components, without which our favorite mods are not able to fully work and can crash the game.
Stay tuned for updates on this material to always have fresh Forge files that are necessary for the correct performance of downloaded mods.
