    Troubleshooting and Tips

    • If you are experiencing any crashes or a lot of lag, please make sure to increase the amount of Ram your Minecraft uses! A good amount is 3 GB!
    • If you are still lagging, do the following once you are in-game: Press escape, Video Settings, then turn "Use VBOS: ON" click it on it to turn it "OFF"
    • Also download Optifine! You can turn off certain particles or disable certain animations to help your minecraft run a lot smoother. Just download then drop the Optifine Mod into your "Mods Folder"! Optifine Download: http://optifine.net/adloadx?f=OptiFine_1.10.2_HD_U_D8.jar
    • If you are moving the pixelmon mod to your mods folder, make sure to ALWAYS move or delete the old version. Minecraft will crash if you have two pixelmon versions.


    That should be everything you need to do to join Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Sinnoh/Unova! Remember if you can't join right now, upgrade to the newest version!

    can you have 2 pixelmon dls in the same mod folder? i.e. the one for sinnoh and the one for hoenn?
  4. Maggie

    Maggie Owner Staff Member Owner

    You can! In that folder create 2 other folders. Name one folder: 1.10.2 Then name the other folder 1.7.10 Then just separate the mods in to their right spots!

    How do you FML/Forge so i can play multiplayer in Kanto and any region?
  7. Maggie

    Maggie Owner Staff Member Owner

    Make sure you have the right version of pixelmon and forge installed, if its that error, its because you are still using pixelmon 1.7.10 and not the 1.10 version that Kanto needs. Follow the guide above to help you install everything correctly.

    Nvm... It doesn't work with 5.0.1 for me...

    AbsolGasai Active Member

    i regretfully admit that i too, am having problems with 5.0.1. ... it's quite sad actually because i'm considered a vet in regards to minecraft.
    idk what the problem is, but i tried logging into hoenn with both pixelmon 5.0.1. and 5.0.0 on minecraft versions 1.10.2 and 1.11.2 ~ the lattest failed so miserably the server didn't even allow it. but point withstanding, i've done everything i'm supposed to do and still get rejected ~ gives me a notification that sounds something like "pixelmon 5.0.1. mod rejection" ~ i hope this helps someone solve the problem (assuming it's a serverwide issue for most people) or that someone informs me of being majorly blonde :3. I'm thinking about downloading the pixelmon launcher...but i'd rather not tbh.

    thank you, i'll show you the errors next time i log in. (probably tommorrow though) ~ i can get to the hub for certain. probably the non-pixelmon one's and possibly jade's server. I might actually transfer to jades server :3

    This is a super, super simple way to install pixelmon 5.0.1. It is also the same way to install forge, just double click forge and run it to make sure it works. This is ensuring you have the mod installed.

    If you could specify what problem you're having it would be easier to help. You just said nothing is showing up? what does that mean? @Mddd

    exact same thing ^ ~ just using windows and we might have a beta version of forge (assuming everyone isn't using a forge beta, it might be the problem)
