[1.7.2]Packet data not persisting


Recommended Posts

So i'm trying to synchronise these arrays between the client and server, except i cant even get an int to sync using packets (must be packets, not datawatcher). Here's my packet class :


(Seriously, is there a problem with macs and that damn code button?)


package mine.packethandling;


import cpw.mods.fml.common.FMLCommonHandler;

import cpw.mods.fml.common.FMLLog;

import mine.player.PlayerSkills;

import mine.player.PlayerSkills.Skill;

import mine.util.Me;

import io.netty.buffer.ByteBuf;

import io.netty.channel.ChannelHandlerContext;

import net.minecraft.entity.player.EntityPlayer;


public class PacketSyncProps extends AbstractPacket {


int times;

public PacketSyncProps(){}


public PacketSyncProps(int times)


Me.log(this.getClass(),"When created, times = " + times);

this.times = times;





public void encodeInto(ChannelHandlerContext ctx, ByteBuf buffer) {





public void decodeInto(ChannelHandlerContext ctx, ByteBuf buffer) {





public void handleClientSide(EntityPlayer player)


Me.log(this.getClass(), "Client side syncing player with sent data");

Me.log(this.getClass(), "Existing data : Times : " + this.times);




public void handleServerSide(EntityPlayer player)


Me.log(this.getClass(), "Why was this sent to server?");

Me.log(this.getClass(), "Fish level pre death " + PlayerStats(player).getSkill(Skill.ONE));

PlayerStats(player).incrementSkill(Skill.ONE, player);






And that packet is created server-side with :

Me.packetPipeline.sendTo(new PacketSyncProps(12), (EntityPlayerMP) player);


(The Me.log spits out the class, the effective side and then the message, and everything is happeneing on the right side)

Why does this.times say 0 when i set it to 12?

For an example of sending/receiving packets, take a look at my network code;



This code comes from the wiki, and works perfectly.

To send a packet, you use ModInstance.packetPipeline.sendTo(new -packetClass-, player).


Hope this helps you! It's fully 1.7.4 compatible :)

I solved it now, but was away when i was doing it so couldnt update you all. Here's how it works for me :



public void encodeInto(ChannelHandlerContext ctx, ByteBuf buffer)


RSLogging.log(this.getClass(), "Encoding Exp " + ExpAmount + " " + SkillAmount + " for " + theSkill.ordinal());







public void decodeInto(ChannelHandlerContext ctx, ByteBuf buffer)


this.ExpAmount = buffer.readInt();

this.SkillAmount = buffer.readInt();

this.theSkill = Skill.getValue(buffer.readInt());


Me.log(this.getClass(), "Decoding : Exp " + ExpAmount + " " + SkillAmount + " for " + theSkill);
