Recommended Posts

Hi. I want to cast (or convert) object with path given as string into EntityLivingBase variable. I'm newbie with modding, so please could you help me? I have tried this:

Object o = Class.forName("net.minecraft.entity.monster.EntitySkeleton");
EntityLivingBase living = (EntityLivingBase) o;

So I'm making a improvement to Morph modification. I added command which takes entity class as an argument and use it to invoke morphPlayer method.. but i need to give EntityLivingBase as argument there..


That's extended version of my code i have at the moment:

	public void processCommand(ICommandSender sender, String[] args) {
	if(args[0].equalsIgnoreCase("morph")) {
		EntityPlayerMP player;
		if(args.length > 2) {
			player = PlayerSelector.matchOnePlayer(sender, args[2]);
		} else {
			player = getCommandSenderAsPlayer(sender);

		Object o = null;
		EntityLivingBase living = null;

		try {
			o = Class.forName(args[1]).getConstructor();
			living = (EntityLivingBase) o;
			Class<?> EH = Class.forName("morph.common.core.EntityHelper");
			Method method = EH.getMethod("morphPlayer", EntityPlayerMP.class, EntityLivingBase.class, boolean.class);
			method.invoke(null, player, living, true);
		} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
		} catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
		} catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
		} catch (InvocationTargetException e) {
		} catch (NoSuchMethodException e) {
		} catch (SecurityException e) {



So now I'm getting

java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: net.minecraft.entity.monster.EntitySkeleton.<init>()

        at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0(Unknown Source)

        at java.lang.Class.getConstructor(Unknown Source)


o = Class.forName(args[1]).getConstructor();
