FTB App FAQs

Where can I get help with the app?

The #ftb-app channel in Discord is for community members to support each other. If nobody in the channel is able to help, you can create a bug on github: https://github.com/FTBTeam/FTB-App/issues

 

How can I pin the app to the taskbar?

On Windows: To pin the FTB app onto your taskbar you need to pin it from within the actual application folder as opposed to trying to pin an open instance of the FTB App. In order to do this first open your start menu and search for FTBApp. This should show you the FTB App under best match. You can then right click on this icon and select pin to taskbar.

 

The app says "Issue connecting to backend... Please wait or relaunch":

Did you pin the app to taskbar without following the instructions above? If so, try creating an issue on Github: https://github.com/FTBTeam/FTB-App/issues

 

How can I increase the amount of RAM allocated for an instance?

Go to My Modpacks, then open the page for an instance. Select the Settings tab, and increase the "INSTANCE MEMORY" slider. Then click Save.

Please note: If you make changes to the memory settings within the Minecraft Launcher, your changes will not be persisted next time you run the app again.

 

I need to contact the developers:

The developers do not look at the #ftb-app channel. If it is a critical issue contact a moderator who will be able to pass on the information. Otherwise all issues should be reported to the Github: https://github.com/FTBTeam/FTB-App/issues

 

Why is the front end written in Electron and the backend made in Java?

Because that is how it was designed. The backend team use Java, the frontend team wanted to use node.

 

Why is something done this way?

You can try asking in the #ftb-app channel, but it is not monitored by the developers. If nobody in the channel knows, post on Github: https://github.com/FTBTeam/FTB-App/issues
