I can't get mods to work right

by Zigbert » Wed Jul 18, 2012 22:28

First of all, im new to Minetest.


I tried downloading a couple of mods, but every time there seems to be a problem with it.

With Moreores or snowy biomes the actual mod works, but the textures show up as unknown blocks.

With the animal one or 4seasons it won't even let me start the game because it says "Failed to load and run.."

they were all put in (minetest folder)\mods\minetest\ when i tried them

I have no idea what's going wrong and I've been looking around the forums at different topics showing how to install mods, but none of them worked out for me. Can anyone help?

EDIT:By the way, i have 0.4

test to install in the world.

here explains how to do:

http://wiki.minetest.com/wiki/Mods#Creating_Mods

You can also install them for a particular game mode:

to see the game modes you have installed, open the folder,
minetest / games

a minimum will have a folder called minimal, which contains the files to run the game mode "Minimal Development test", you can also have another call minetest_game, which contains the game mode "minetes"
if you open any of these, you will find a folder mods.

copy your mod folder inside this folder, so you will only be installed in the worlds using this mode of play,

Another thing to consider is that minetest is evolving, so some mods may not work on newer versions,

may also mod this updated to a version higher than you, then try to install a version of the mod

sorry for my English is 90% Google...
My mod: [MOD]3D Forniture 1.0
Download: 3DForniture_v_1.0.zip
Page development (European Castilian):
Moviliario 3D (proyecto 3D Forniture)

You must have 0.4 to run mods.

Mauvebic, it wasn't 4season's fault. i just tried it again today and it worked! i think it might be because i didn't start a new world last time, lol. I'm going to try the other ones i've been having trouble with and see if they show up.


By the way, thanks for the help, everyone
