I accidentally deleted my files for all my modpack and I just decided to wipe everything and redownload the launcher. I cleared the ftblauncher out of my %appdata% and also created a new location for the ftb launcher to download the modpack but when i try to run the launcher it just stays at please wait while mods are being loaded. I have uninstalled my antivirus and it wont allow me to change my download location (the only option i have is automatic). Someone please help.

also here is the pastebin of my console

You're not the only having this problem. When I try to download a pack it acts like it's downloading it, then it ends up only downloading the Minecraft files but nothing of the pack files. Then it loads MC which ends up being vanilla.
It doesn't matter which pack you try to get.

At this current time I'm talking with 2 other people that are having the exact same problem. One said this has been going on for a at least a day or more.

Just made an account to throw in my hat and say I'm getting this problem as well.

Funny thing though, on one attempt to open the launcher it connected long enough to download the list modpacks, maps, and texture packs. Sadly the mod folders created when attempting to run were empty. I then re-uninstalled and installed everything again and now it's back to not having any of the pack map or texture info at all.

EDIT: Fixed. Don't know how or why but after about 10 or so openings of the launcher it worked itself out. Thanks!

I just made an account as well. I've been playing Direwolf20 pack for the past few days. I wanted to try out Unleashed and I can confirm what Wolf68k said:

"When I try to download a pack it acts like it's downloading it, then it ends up only downloading the Minecraft files but nothing of the pack files. Then it loads MC which ends up being vanilla."

I have followed the steps here: http://desk.feed-the-beast.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/9/0/basic-troubleshooting

Now I have the same problem as SkySpy:

"I then re-uninstalled and installed everything again and now it's back to not having any of the pack map or texture info at all."

I have tried to open and close the launcher several times.
I have tried opening several launchers at the same time.

When the launcher opens the ModPacks, Maps, and TexturePacks are no longer listed.

Same problem here.

Windows 7 64-bit, with latest 64-bit Oracle Java 7

Followed all guides. Problem was not resolved.

Please note that in a possibly related issue, the website http://feed-the-beast.com/repo-status fails to load the data, on both Firefox and Chrome.

Also note that one England and one Los Angeles Creeper Host location is offline, though this is unlikely an issue (as Chicago and a second England location remain active).

Please accelerate this issue, as a NumberFormatException is a pretty obvious software bug, especially when it's from being called on the extremely odd input string "¬í�".

To try to help move this along: I think it's pretty clear that the repo is the problem. I want to confirm that Ash gets the same error message as I do when visiting www.creeperrepo.net (which is, I believe, where the repo is located).

I get a page that says:

creeperrepo.net
is not currently available
please check back in a few minutes
managed dns services
global load balancing
distributed failover

edgedirector.com

Its been like this for a couple of hours. I want to confirm you get the same error, since if it's a load balancing issue with creeperrepo, it could explain why you don't get the same error: geographical location could be a factor.

I changed nothing since the last time I tried and now it works. Now that it works I tried downloading Unleashed, first attempt it failed an MD5 hash check on the 9 mB file. My second attempt I didn't even close the launcher and it worked. I agree with Fizzixnerd, it was an external issue beyond our ability to fix.

Same problem with 1.5.2 modpacks.

I found a fix for everyone who has a issue for downloading the modpack.
All you have to do is to edit your DNS server to a server that works. You can try google's dns. 8.8.8.8 - 8.8.4.4. This DNS server should make you able to download it, if not just try to find a different one.

How do you edit your DNS?
