This question already has an answer here:

As the title states, whenever I try to install mods (Renaming folder, installing mods, etc.), the newly-created (modded) folder does not appear in the 'Use Version:' list on the launcher.

What might be wrong?

You need to rename 4 things:

  • The folder
  • The .json file
  • The .jar file
  • The "id" inside the .json file

If any of these are not changed, the version will not show up.

  • Oh >.> I forgot to rename the folder itself... – MerajA Sep 14 '13 at 10:11
