ModLoader for Minecraft 1.6.2/1.5.2

What’s ModLoader?

A mod, roughly like a mod manager, that stops conflicts with mods that alter rendering, recipes, add entities, gui, smeltables or fuel. If you happen to’re a modder, feel free to decompile this and learn to make mods work with it. Inherit BaseMod and override any strategies as important. The mod’s major class file will have to be prefixed with ‘mod_’. read the Javadoc for information on strategies on hand.
