    I'd take that link down if I were you. The FTB team doesn't like it when the launcher is redistributed.

    It sounds like your issue is that you're not navigating to the directory with your FTB launcher before telling it to launch. For instance, it might be looking for your launcher on your desktop when it's in, say, your "random stuffs" folder on your desktop.

    Ok guys I created an apple script and shell command to go with it. To get this working put it in the directory where you installed your FTB and Launcher. Open the FTB_Launcher.sh shell command with Xcode or whatever simple text editor you can and change the %yourname% portion with the name of the user folder you installed it in. Do the same with the script file located in the zip, however after modifying it make sure to save it as an application and you will be able to double click it and run the launcher. For example

    /Users/Griffen8280/FTB/ is the name of my user folder where I have all the FTB stuff stored. It is a good idea to store it all in one spot as once you change the names on the script file and the .sh file you will only need the script file to open the launcher with no problems. Hope this helps anyone out there and good luck.

    Dropbox link to the files you will need to modify and use:

    People the solution is simple.
    1. Download Java SE Jar Bundler
    2. Download the Feed The Beast jar file
    3. Open the jar bundler and select the FTB jar
    4. Save the application to the Desktop and bundle
    5. Move the new FTB launcher to the applications folder and run the game

    All files will save to the destination you give just like in the regular launcher. If you update the launcher it will replace the old jar file with the new
    Like this post and rate it up so everybody to see it trust me it is the simplest way.

    You should add links to the Java 6 downloads, since it is possible for the user to not have Java 6 installed.

    (Please don't re-host the launcher. It is quite frowned upon. ~Morvy)

    If you want to take the easy way you go into your utilities folder and go to java preferences and move the 6.0 to the top and it will work fine
