Hello there I'm trying to make a mcmod.info file, I put the file below in the root of my zipped mod but Forge wouldn't load it what does I wrong :

 

mcmod.info File :

 

{
  "modinfoversion": 2,
  "modlist": [{
    "modid": "camomod",
    "name": "Camo Mod",
    "description": "Camouflage your stuff because you never gonna now what happen",
    "version": "0.1",
    "mcversion": "1.6.2",
    "url": "-",
    "updateUrl": "",
    "authors": [ "Graphicscore", "Setix", "mehrmrhr" ],
    "credits": "Code by Graphicscore and GFX by mehrmrhr",
    "logoFile": "/assets/textures/logo.png",
    "screenshots": [ "", "" ],
    "parent": "",
    "requiredMods": [ "Forge" ],
    "dependencies": [ "" ],
    "dependants": [ "" ],
    "useDependencyInformation": "true"
  }]
}

I always have issues with the mcmod.info file so I found a work around to the file and hard coded it directly into the mod.

 

	@PreInit
public void randomName(FMLPreInitializationEvent event) //really does not matter on the name of the public void 
{
	ModMetadata m = event.getModMetadata(); //This is required or it will not work
	m.autogenerated = false; //This is required otherwise it will not work
	m.modId = "The mods id (This must match the class or it wont work)";
	m.version = "Mod Version";
	m.name = "The Name of Said Mod";
	m.url = "http://modsofficialwebsite.com";
	m.description = "Some Descriptions";
	m.authorList.add("NameofAuthor1")
	m.authorList.add("NameofAuthor2")
}

 

This can be added basically anywhere in your mod in the main class file. if you want to add more options just type m. after just wait a few seconds for some options or you can look directly into the ModMetadata class. It will have a full source of all the options. But if you really want to use the mcmod.info file it does not go directly under the .zip file. In my mod everything is under the Nexion directory so its like Nexion 1.5.zip > Nexion > mcmod.info Which is the mods ID. Hope this helps :P

A modder uses search for solutions, a coder asks for help only after looking into the main source of the game modding. A master java programmer has solutions and is helpful. Be friendly to others, they will be friendly to you (depending on how their day goes ;) )

mcmod.info can be placed anywhere in the mod, it doesn't matter.

You should check if modid and version are the same as declared in the mod.

You can also remove any line with no info:

[{
    "modid": "camomod",
    "name": "Camo Mod",
    "description": "Camouflage your stuff because you never gonna now what happen",
    "version": "0.1",
    "mcversion": "1.6.2",
    "authors": [ "Graphicscore", "Setix", "mehrmrhr" ],
    "credits": "Code by Graphicscore and GFX by mehrmrhr",
    "logoFile": "/assets/textures/logo.png",
    "useDependencyInformation": "true"
  }]

I am not sure about the logo file either. You might want to remove the path and put the logo image next to this file.
