[1.7.10] How to include and reference text file?


m27315

Recommended Posts

I'm a little out of my water, being new to Forge Mod development.  I'd like for each user to have their own config file, which if it doesn't exist, I want to copy it out of the mod and into the user's config file space.  It's a non-standard config file, so I can't use the easier read/write config file methods. ... Dumb question, where can I find more info on MyMod.class.getResourceAsStream in the forge javadocs?  What class does that belong to? ... Thanks!

Class.class.getResourceAsStream

isn't related to Forge anyway. It's plain Java, so look up on that.

Don't PM me with questions. They will be ignored! Make a thread on the appropriate board for support.

 

1.12 -> 1.13 primer by williewillus.

 

1.7.10 and older versions of Minecraft are no longer supported due to it's age! Update to the latest version for support.

Here's a class I use to unpack some custom COG files, which is based off how COG unpacks its config files (COG is also open source).

 

package com.draco18s.hardlib;

import java.io.BufferedOutputStream;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import cpw.mods.fml.common.Loader;

public class CogConfig {
private static List<String> extraModules = new ArrayList<String>();

public static void addCogModule(String name) {
	extraModules.add(name);
}

public static void unpackConfigs() {
	File configPath = getConfigDir();
        	
        	File defaultModulesDir = new File(modulesDir, "custom"); //TODO change this if you don't need a sub-folder or want a different name
        	if (!defaultModulesDir.exists()) {
        		defaultModulesDir.mkdir();
        	}
        
        	for (String module : extraModules) {
        		File writeFile = new File(defaultModulesDir, module);
        		if(!writeFile.exists()) {
        			unpackConfigFile(module, writeFile);
        		}
        	}
}

private static boolean unpackConfigFile(String configName, File destination) {
    	String resourceName = "cog_config/" + configName; //TODO: change this to point to your resource location, which is inside "src/main/resources", eg. this currently points to "src/main/resources/cog_config"
        try {
    	    InputStream ex = HardLib.class.getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream(resourceName);
            BufferedOutputStream streamOut = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(destination));
            byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];
            boolean len = false;
            int len1;

            while ((len1 = ex.read(buffer)) >= 0)
            {
                streamOut.write(buffer, 0, len1);
            }

            ex.close();
            streamOut.close();
            return true;
        }
        catch (Exception var6) {
            throw new RuntimeException("Failed to unpack resource \'" + resourceName + "\'", var6);
        }
    }

private static File getConfigDir() {
    		return new File(Loader.instance().getConfigDir(), "CustomOreGen");//TODO: change this to point to you desired config location
    	}
}

 

It's flexible enough that you should be able to alter it to handle whatever file or files you want.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

Ouch at that manual copying :P Why do people always reinvent the wheel?

 

Likely because we don't know the wheel exists. :D
