[1.7.10] Send files between server and client


Recommended Posts

Ok so I do not want to give to much a bout my new mod because some one copied my last mod idea. I want user to be able to take screen shot and then in java it will get crop and compressed (it only going be shown in minecraft so it does not not be best quailty), any one once place click the crop button the image get sent to the server with a date/time stamp, I do not know if packets are the right or if they work for what I want if so could tell me or another way that would grate. When the server receives it will cache it with the data/time stamp and send it out all other users. When a player joins the file name and time stamp with be compared between server and client, if they do not match the server will send the newest one to the client. Is there any way to all any of this with forge or will have to whole file send and receiver class to my mod?   


Edit - I was thinking (do not know if this possible) I could make an event that is triggered when the use clicks the button which seen the image, the time stamp and their user as event info, do not know how that works between server and client though.


My forge knowledge is very limited help me improve it.

I think packets are the way to go. In vanilla the server can send an entire resource pack to the client via S48PacketResourcePackSend.


Edit: that example is no good, but the server still sends entire chunks to the client

catch(Exception e)




Yay, Pokémon exception handling, gotta catch 'em all (and then do nothing with 'em).

Yup, you want to use packets:




As to other - I wouldn't directly sync "screenshots" as in vanilla ones. KeyBinding that does same as vanilla screenshot, but also sends it. KeyBindingEvent or KeyboardEvent might be useful (I don't remember).


Anyway - you need to know this:

* Packets from server to client will get split into partial packets if data is too big.

* Packets from client to server WILL NOT. You will have to handle splitting on your own if you need bigger than standard size (which I don't think you will).

* Also this: http://greyminecraftcoder.blogspot.com.au/2015/01/thread-safety-with-network-messages.html

* And for some of those request based system you might wanna use PlayerLoggedInEvent or one of FMLNetworkEvent (e.g client connection).

1.7.10 is no longer supported by forge, you are on your own.

Depends on how your packet is set up. If you have a single value that is too large, which you might for a serialized image, it won't split up the packet and will throw errors.

What is a "single value"? Packets don't care about values. Packets are a pile of byte, nothing else. Splitting server-to-client will work regardless of what is in your packet.

    • Hello There! In the 73rd episode of Bed Wars we get into a lobby with a guy who had a cool name and for some reason Ben is very impressed with the name and thus the title!  
    • I have been trying to install forge, but I can't even get the installer to run. I'm really not sure what the issue is, first let me make sure I am even using the installer right, I downloaded the forge installer matching my minecraft version (1.19.2), if I double click the .jar from the download then I see a flash of a black window that immediately disappears. If I use a command prompt, I receive the following output: C:\Users\austi> java -jar forge-1.19.2-43.0.19-installer.jar Error: Unable to access jarfile forge-1.19.2-43.0.19-installer.jar   I feel like this is more likely a java issue than a forge issue but I was hoping that people here might be able to help. I've tried a couple versions of java, at first I was using 8 I believe because all of the install guides for forge were a bit older so they linked to the java website rather than oracle. I tried version 18 from the oracle site and received the same result from command prompt. It is also entirely possible that I am doing something else wrong that is blatantly obvious to everyone else.
    • Here is my configuration: % java -version java version "18.0.2" 2022-07-19 Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 18.0.2+9-61) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 18.0.2+9-61, mixed mode, sharing) forge-1.19-41.1.0-mdk on macOS Monterey 12.5 I ran the command: ./gradlew genEclipseRuns and was hoping it will generate the Eclipse project files for me. The run log is at https://gist.github.com/arun-gupta/06b983a6976b4c0a0f510d0dc225ddd3 and the generated directory structure is at https://gist.github.com/arun-gupta/3f5bfc70ec5d3d903b0f97d42840abda. In previous versions (1.12-ish), it used to generate an eclipse directory but 1.19 does not seem to have it. I tried opening the top-level forge directory but Eclipse does not recognize it as a project as well. How do I open this project in Eclipse now?  
    • I didn't put in credentials, I used it only for testing installing forge. But still the problem mentioned above.
    • I am trying to use Forge 1.18.2, I have checked my firewall, redownloaded Forge, deleted the fml.toml file (which keeps reappearing) and looked at countless help pages. I am just trying to download and use forge so that I can play with my friends and it will not download. It tells me there may be an issue with the Java runtime config and that the exit code is one, and I have copied the exit code.
