Juliana Jul 26, I hear you Juliana. Try using the installer. Forge 1. First , make sure you have the most up to date java runtime. To run the jar in a console. Open up finder search your applications for terminal. Open terminal put the jar in your user directory. Type into terminal: java -jar jarName. It should run the jar in the open terminal. You will be able to see errors and copy, paste them into your question, update the question.
You should be able to type the first few letters of your jar file name and then press tab to auto complete it. If that doesn't work rename the jar name to something shorter so you will be able to type it easier.
