With people now being forced to use 1.8 there are many mods that are .litemod files instead of your normal .jar file. Forge uses jar files, while LightLoader uses litemod files, in this guide I'll be showing you how to be able to use both kinds of mods at the same time. NOTE - Not all mods are allowed on the Hypixel, to learn which mods are and aren't read THIS thread. Spoiler: Windows Tutorial Step #1 - Download Forge. For Forge it's usually best to just download the recommended version, if a mod doesn't want to work sometimes it can help to use the latest version of Forge instead. You'll want to download the one that says "Installer-win" as it's the easiest one to work with. When you first click the link to download you'll be taken to a page with some ads, wait until you see something that says skip ad (Should be on the top right). Step #2 - Download LiteLoader. For 1.8 LiteLoader you'll need to go HERE and download the latest .exe file (Currently "liteloader-installer-1.8.0-00-SNAPSHOT.exe"). Step #3 - Install Forge first. Just run the exe file you downloaded and click "OK", and once it's down you can click "OK" again and boom Forge installed. Step #4 - Now you'll be installing LiteLoader. Run the exe file you downloaded and where it says "Extend from:" select the version of Forge you downloaded and installed, then click "OK" to start installing and once it's done click "OK" again to close it. Step #5 - Paste "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\mods\1.8" into start/search and this is where you're mods go. You can put both jar files and litemod files in here now (Some mods may not always work together). If Windows cannot find the directory do step 6 first and launch Minecraft, then come back and do this. Step #6 Launch Minecraft, go to the bottom right and change your profile to the one that says something like "LiteLoader 1.8 with Forge 1.8" NOTE - Everything has to be the same version, meaning you can't use 1.7 Forge with 1.8 LiteLoader or 1.8 LiteLoader and Forge with 1.7 mods.
