Prerequisites

Before playing Feed the Beast, you should do the following:

  1. Purchase Minecraft from Mojang and create an account.
  2. Install Minecraft and launch it at least once to verify it runs successfully on your computer.

Installing the launcher

Once you have Minecraft successfully running you are ready to install the FTB Launcher.

Twitch App Launcher

The steps above pertain to the legacy FTB launcher. FTB has switched support to the Twitch app, which can be downloaded here.

  1. Download the .exe or .app file from here.
  2. Navigate to the .exe or .app file on your computer and open it.
  3. Login with your Twitch credentials.

FTB Legacy Launcher

Once you have Minecraft successfully running on its own you are ready to install the FTB Launcher. The FTB Launcher is depreciated by FTB Team who instead recommend the Twitch Desktop App, but the latter currently doesn't support Linux, and there are also a few older third-party modpacks that cannot be downloaded using the Twitch Desktop App yet.

  1. Browse to the FTB site and download the .exe from here. There is also a .jar file for Mac and Linux users.
  2. Put the .exe in its own folder somewhere on your computer.
  3. Run the .exe. It may take some time for it to configure itself the first time.
  4. Click on the OPTIONS tab and configure the installation location, memory settings, and window size/position.
  5. Create a profile using your Minecraft username (or Mojang e-mail) and password.

Choosing a modpack

There are many FTB modpacks, as listed here. The Twitch Desktop App can also be used to install many other modpacks from other creators as well.

Twitch App

  1. Click on the "Mods" at the top sidebar, and then "Minecraft." If it is not there, check if the app's settings has mod management on for Minecraft. This will bring you to the profiles page.
  2. Click "Browse FTB Modpacks"
  3. Click on the desired modpack.
  4. Click "Install" by the top-left corner.
  5. Navigate back to the profiles page.
  6. Click "Play" to load up the Minecraft launcher.
  7. Enjoy playing Feed the Beast!

Choosing a modpack

There are many FTB modpacks. A list of official modpacks can be found on the Modpacks page. There are also many 3rd party modpacks, and the public ones can be found on the Forums.

Installing a public pack

  1. In the launcher's main window click on the "3RD PARTY PACKS" tab.
  2. Click on one of the packs on the left. The launcher will list the mods that make up that pack.
  3. Once you have chosen your pack click the "Launch" button.
  4. Wait as the launcher downloads, installs, and launches the pack.
  5. Enjoy playing Feed the Beast!

Installing an unlisted pack
