Issue starting up the game

Sep 12, 2019
So I have downloaded the pixelmon pack for technic and have allocated 4GB of Ram. When I try to log into the multiplayer server, its just a square with signs saying "welcome to the pixelmon server" and "press and item to join a server" however there are literally no items anywhere, its just those signs. Im sure I'm missing out on something stupid but can't seem to find an answer anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Pokemon is owned by the Pokemon Company a subsidiary of Nintendo. Pixelmon is owned by Pixelmon Reforged
