Register Event Cannot Resolve Symbol


Recommended Posts

Alright, so this might be a Java problem, and if it is I'm sorry, but either I'm missing something super obvious or I don't have the right libraries installed 

This is my item initialization file, and I'm simply trying to initialize an item using the RegisterEvent and IntelliJ refuses to acknowledge it as a real class and I am running out of things to google as I simply cannot find an answer to my issues. Here's my code


package com.GitHub.BeaniePope.ThaumoNuclear.init;

import net.minecraft.item.Item;
import net.minecraft.util.ResourceLocation;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.eventhandler.SubscribeEvent;
import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.registry.ForgeRegistries;

import static com.GitHub.BeaniePope.ThaumoNuclear.ThaumoNuclear.MODID;

public class itemInit {
    public void register(RegisterEvent event) {
                helper -> {
                    helper.register(new ResourceLocation(MODID, "gay"), new Item());

Essentially the event.register and RegisterEvent events refuse to exist anywhere in any import and I do not know why, so any help would be nice

Again, I completely understand if this is a Java issue and thus not for this forum but I'm not actually sure if it is so just tell me and I'll try my best. Thank you.

You are correct, it is a java question.

You appear to be using an unsupported (in this forum) version of forge, I think 1.12? But then trying to use api that is from forge 1.19, e.g.

import net.minecraftforge.fml.common.eventhandler.SubscribeEvent; // <-- 1.12
import net.minecraftforge.eventbus.api.SubscribeEvent; // <-- 1.19

RegisterEvent was introduced in 1.19

If you don't post your logs/debug.log we can't help you. For curseforge you need to enable the forge debug.log in its minecraft settings. You should also post your crash report if you have one.

If there is no error in the log file and you don't have a crash report then post the launcher_log.txt from the minecraft folder. Again for curseforge this will be in your curseforge/minecraft/Install

Large files should be posted to a file sharing site like https://gist.github.com  You should also read the support forum sticky post.
