Required Hardware

You should have a computer fast enough to play Minecraft Beta without being overly-burdoned. JourneyMap isn’t a resource pig, but does use more memory, more threads, and frequently writes image files to your hard drive.

Required Web Browser

To view JourneyMap in your web browser (instead of in-game), you will need to a browser with full HTML5 support.  You’re all set if you use an up-to-date version of one of the following: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera.

Microsoft Internet Explorer is not fully supported because it lacks complete HTML5 feature support. As of JourneyMap 2.0, IE 9 or IE 10 work for the most part. Don’t forget, you can also use the in-game JourneyMap instead.  (Press the ‘J’ key).

Required Software: ModLoader or Forge

JourneyMap uses the very popular ModLoader to work as a mod in Minecraft. ModLoader takes most of the hassle out of adding mods to Minecraft, because you only need to modify the minecraft.jar once. After that, any ModLoader-enabled mods are easily installed by dropping a zip file into the right folder.

Note: If you’re a Forge user, ModLoader-compatible mods like JourneyMap also work in Forge.

The key is to be sure you have the correct version of ModLoader for your version of Minecraft.

Once you have ModLoader installed, you’ll put the JourneyMap.*.zip into your mods folder:

If you use… Then your mods folder is here…
Windows %appdata%\.minecraft\mods
Max OSX /Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/mods
Unix /home/$user/.minecraft/mods
