[1.10.2] Getting a long from player's nbt and displaying in a gui?


Recommended Posts

Currently using the following code:

public void drawForeground(int mouseX, int mouseY) {
	long rupees = Minecraft.getMinecraft().thePlayer.getEntityData().getLong("rupeeCount");
	Minecraft.getMinecraft().fontRendererObj.drawString(Long.toString(rupees), 45, 92, 4210752);


It always displays as 0. I know I am using the correct key for the long because I have added a chat command that checks it and it is returning the proper value.

The tag returned by


isn't automatically synced to the client, you need to do this yourself.


That said, you shouldn't be using


anyway. Use the Capability system to store data on players (among other things).


For examples, you can look at the capabilities provided by Forge (look for usages of


), the capability test mod or my own mod's capabilities (API, implementation).

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.
