Here are some of the most asked questions about Decimation, along with the reasoning and explanations. If you happen to have a question that isn't listed on this document, please ask us on the Decimation forums section.
Q: How do I update Decimation to the latest version?
A: From the main menu, click the "Settings" button and then click the "Force-Update" button. If you are missing the update button, you most likely have updates disabled in your decimation-client config file.
Q: I've installed the latest version, but it's telling me that there's an update! Why?
A: If this is your first time installing Decimation, it most likely indicates that it has an update because it needs to install the external Decimation Voice Chat modification, which is a separate .jar file. Just update one more time and it shouldn't ask again.
Q: My game crashes when I update Decimation! Why?
A: Technically it's not a crash. Your game closes after downloading and installing the latest version of Decimation so that you can re-launch and play. To fix this, just simply start the game again, and you will be running the latest version of Decimation.
Q: My game crashes when I join a server or singleplayer! Why?
A: This error can occur if you are using Optifine with Decimation, or you have previously played Minecraft on a later version of the game. Try removing Optifine, or deleting your options.txt file.
Q: My game is giving me an "Out of Memory" error! Why?
A: This issue occurs when you have not allocated enough RAM. You can allocate more RAM to your game (at least 2-3GB) via your launcher settings. Most launchers, including the vanilla Minecraft one, allow you to allocate more RAM through their launcher settings.
Q: I'm being kicked for "Modified Files"! Why?
A: Make sure that you're always running the latest version of Decimation, especially if you wish to play on our Official servers. You can check your game version from the Window title or from the in-game main menu. Our servers do not allow you to join if you have other mods installed (not including several allowances). Please make sure that you have no other mods installed on your game. You must ensure that there are only 2 files in your Mods folder: Decimation.jar and DecimationVoiceChat.jar. If you have any other mods, folders or files in your /mods/ folder, they will be included when the anti-cheat is scanning your game. Please also make sure that you are not using a 1.7.10 folder inside of your /mods/ folder.
Q: I bought a rank but I don't have it! Why?
A: If you've bought your rank quite recently, give it at least 20-30 minutes to apply. Also make sure that you've purchased the rank using the proper in-game username. If you still do not have your rank, create a new support ticket on our website, including proof of your transaction and your in-game username!
Q: My in-game sound randomly stopped working! Why?
A: This is a slight issue with the voice chat mod that we use. Minecrafts sound engine can only support so many people voice chatting at once. To fix this issue, simply press F3 + S. This will temporarily freeze your game, but will fix your sound within 10-20 seconds.
Q: I bought a rank on another account, can I transfer it?
A: The short answer is no. We have a tight payment system for our webstore to ensure all payments are properly logged and saved. We can not transfer ranks or donations between accounts, because of this. If you can not access your account because it has been hacked, contact the Mojang support center.
Q: I just saw a hacker and I want to report them! How?
A: Head over to our Decimation player reports section and create a new player report thread. Make sure to include as much evidence as possible! Video footage of the reported player is a must. We will investigate all player reports as soon as possible to ensure that the perpetrator is dealt with.
Q: My game keeps crashing! Why?
This is most likely due to the fact, that you are not running enough ram. The solution for this is to install 64-bit Java. If you do not know how to install it. Follow these steps, for the launcher you are using. Though, if that is not the case. You can send your latest crash-report to the Decimation forums Bugs & Glitches section for us to fix!
Step 1: Go to "Launcher Options," it will be located on the top right corner of the Technic Launcher, then click "Java Settings."
Step 2: Check if your Minecraft Java Version is 64-bit, if it is skip to the 4th step. If you do not have it, head on to the 3rd step.
Step 3: How to install 64-bit Java. Before you install it, make sure you are installing for the right operating system. Windows would be "Windows Offline (64-bit)." Here is the link to the page, where you install it from. ->
Step 5: After installing 64-bit Java, you will be able to launch your game without crashing!
Step 1: Go to your "Settings" on Twitch.
Step 2: Click on "Minecraft."
Step 3: Scroll down to "Java Settings" and check if the "Java Version" is "64-bit." If it is, allocate more memory on the bottom, at least 3000 mb/megabytes and you are done. If your Java Version is not 64-bit, head on to the next step.
Step 4: How to install 64-bit Java. Before you install it, make sure you are installing for the right operating system. Windows would be "Windows Offline (64-bit)." Here is the link to the page, where you install it from. ->
Step 1: Firstly, you need 64-bit java, if you do not have it already. Before you install it, make sure you are installing for the right operating system. Windows would be "Windows Offline (64-bit)." Here is the link to the page, where you install it from. ->
Step 3: Hover over the 1.7.10 installation, there should be the world "play," next to it is 3 dots. Click those three dots, and click "edit."
Step 4: On the bottom left, click "More Options."
Step 5: You are focusing on "JVM Arguments." At the beginning of the text, it says something like "-Xmx1G -XX." What you need to do to allocate more ram is replace the 1, to the amount of gigabytes you want to use. Decimation needs at least 3 gigabytes. If you want to allocate more, go ahead but doing the max can slow down your computer. You are pretty much done by then, and can play your game.
Q: Why do I get the error, an existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host?
A: You are connecting to the server too fast, wait 5-10 minutes before trying to re-connect to the server, or another fix would be to reconnect to your wifi.
Q: I tried to download a new update on Decimation, but it crashes and turns into the normal Minecraft loading screen. Is there a way to solve it?
- If you are using the Technic Launcher, replace with the latest file from here. -> https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/decimation-zombie-apocalypse
- If you are not using the Technic Launcher, try installing the Technic Launcher to see if that helps. This is the link on how to install other methods. -> https://www.boehmod.com/forum/ewr-carta/deci_installation/
- You get this error from changing your Minecraft username, simple fix is to re-log.
- Another solution is to login to a Cracked Server, then rejoin to an Official Server.
- Using a cracked account may also be the case. It will not let you log onto the Official Servers, without a premium(paid) account.
A: Do not worry, the servers are just going through a quick restart. It should take about 2 minutes, for them to be up again.
