Jumploader is a mod that allows the use of Fabric mods in Twitch modpacks, by loading Fabric as if it were a Forge mod. It works on both the client and server, however it's only necessary on the server if you want to launch the game using tools that only support Forge. Jumploader is fully configurable to load any Minecraft version and mod loader, but by default it will load the Fabric loader and library versions corresponding to your current version of the game. It only loads if your game was launched from Forge/ModLauncher, so it won't do anything if your Minecraft launcher already supports Fabric.
Warning: This mod will stop Forge mods from loading! Make sure you back up before you join worlds where you have used Forge mods previously - as all the blocks/items added by those mods will disappear.
What it does
- Loads Fabric (or a different configured mod loader) instead of Forge, from a Forge installation.
- Automatically loads the latest Fabric loader version for your version of the game, with no required configuration.
- If necessary, loads the unpatched Minecraft game, so that Fabric can be used with it.
- Ensures that Fabric and Mixin don't see the classes loaded by ModLauncher.
What it doesn't do
- Jumploader doesn't let you run Fabric mods in tandem with Forge mods - it hijacks the launching process so that Forge never loads. See Patchwork for a project aiming to do this.
- Jumploader doesn't currently work very well on the client for loading a Minecraft game with a different major version (including snapshots) to the currently loaded game, as supplementary assets (such as sounds) are downloaded separately by the game launcher. The Asset Validator mod fixes this issue.
Requires a Forge version that uses ModLauncher (or ModLauncher on it's own, without Forge) - this usually means 1.13 or newer.
