I figured it out. application.conf had: provider = "akka.cluster.ClusterActorRefProvider" cluster isn't part of akka-actor its part of akka-cluster. I've switched to provider = "akka.actor.LocalActorRefProvider" instead.
I'm trying to use akka inside my scala based mod. The when testing using "gradle runClient" it gives errors, best I can tell its missing the akka library at runtime. I don't see how to add akka library though. If it helps my project is here: https://github.com/tesract/NilCraft Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. build.gradle gradle runClient
