So I will explain what I am looking for. I would like to render a message above the head, like the nickname (i'm using RenderEntityEvent ). However when the player is in a cave as example, the player on the surface will not see his nickname. ( At a good distance of course ). In 1.12.2, I used the RenderSystem.enableAlphaTest() to see the text through blocks. I use the FontRenderer#drawInBatch() method to render my text however RenderSystem.enableAlphaTest() is deprecreated & seem doesn't work for FontRenderer#drawInBatch() method. So that's why i need help please !
