Manually updating Cauldron to a newer forge version is producing exception by FML


Recommended Posts


I tried to update Cauldron, which is using Forge 1207, manually. My steps:

  • download Cauldron source code from GitHub
  • change in build.gradle ext.forgeVersion = "1207" to ext.forgeVersion = "1284" and 'Forge-Version': '' to 'Forge-Version': ''
  • execute "gradle setupCauldron"

The error of gradle is the following:


fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
:createVersionPropertiesFML FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':createVersionPropertiesFML'.
> Process 'command 'git'' finished with non-zero exit value 128




Something else, what I have noticed, in the build.gradle of Cauldron:


buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven {
            name = "forge"
            url = "http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven"
        maven {
            name = "sonatype"
            url = "https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/"
    dependencies {
        classpath 'net.minecraftforge.gradle:ForgeGradle:1.2-SNAPSHOT'


The website "http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven" does not exist… 404 Not Found.

Is this normal?


Thank you!!
