It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for…
What does this mean?
Well for one, this means that you only need to download and worry about one file, which is the launcher. The launcher will automatically download the necessary patches/mods/files needed to get the current iteration of the YogBox up and running, regardless of the current base version of vanilla Minecraft that is out. Basically it’s far more foolproof than the previous installer method, and also you’ll be notified of when updates are available via the launcher!
This also means that through the launcher you can run instances of Technic/Tekkit/Vanilla (unmodified) Minecraft as well! No more futzing around with JAR files, configs and seperate launchers… Everything you need is right here!
Kickass! Does this also mean I can play multiplayer with the YogBox now?!
Unfortunately, no. Not at this time. But there may be a possibility in the future!

Uh, I’m too excited and I don’t know how to use this!?@#
It’s alright, it’s okay, settle down… Here’s a simple guide:
Once you fire up the launcher, you’ll notice in the upper right that there’s a dropdown box. Click that and select the modpack you want (YogBox, natch! ). Enter your Minecraft login and password in the lower right like you would with the regular Minecraft launcher then hit the LOGIN button on the lower right.
NOTE: For those of you who feel uncomfortable putting in your private information, you can be rest assured that this launcher is a fork of the Spoutcraft launcher, which is a completely open source and secure launcher. Also since it’s JAVA based, it can be easily decompiled and thumbed through if you still feel paranoid.
You should then see the modloader config file, just simply replace the ON with OFF for said mods you want disabled. Save it then close it.
WARNING! DISABLING CERTAIN MODS SUCH AS MINECRAFTFORGE WILL CAUSE STABILITY ISSUES! USE THIS FEATURE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
AGH I ONLY HAVE THREE HEARTS WAAAH WAAH!@#
This is simply a part of the YogBox experience thanks to the MoreHealthRPG mod. You gain 1 heart once you hit level one, then another at level five and thereafter every five levels (eg. 5, 10, 15, 20, etc.) up to twenty hearts maximum.
NOTE: DISABLING THIS MOD IN THE CONFIG FILE WILL NOT WORK! An alternate method is being looked into at this time. If the game is too hard for you, set it to peaceful mode and kill friendly mobs and collect their XP until your health is up to a comfortable level.
