[1.8]Make booleans stay after quitting Minecraft

Recommended Posts

Hey, while making my mod I ran into a stupid problem: Each time I restart Minecraft, my booleans get reset to default. I would like to make them stay like they are even after restarting Minecraft, but I cant find a way on how to do it. I already tried to make it via a config but I dont want to change the config manually (via a text editor) but with a button. I hope you can help me and tell me if you need anything! (Some code or my config)

Whenever I push a button, I want my boolean to change AND STAY AFTER QUITTING MINECRAFT. Example:

private static boolean instantRejoin = false;
public static boolean instaRejoinEnabled(){
    return (instantRejoin = !instantRejoin);
}
public static boolean instaRejoinInfo(){
    return (instantRejoin);
}

Does it also work if I am using it in the preInit?

@EventHandler
public static void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event)
{
	//NoToxic.init();
	//NoToxic.register();
	Configuration config1= new Configuration(event.getSuggestedConfigurationFile());
	config1.load();

	FastExamples.NotResetVariables.PMs = config1.getBoolean("PMs", "Booleans", false, "Disable to disable by default");
	FastExamples.NotResetVariables.PMs = config1.getBoolean("InstantRejoin", "Booleans", false, "Disable to disable by default");
	FastExamples.NotResetVariables.PMs = config1.getBoolean("ShowPartyChat", "Booleans", false, "Disable to disable by default");
	FastExamples.NotResetVariables.PMs = config1.getBoolean("ShowGuildChat", "Booleans", false, "Disable to disable by default");
	config1.save();
}

And if yes, how can I change it inside an event?

Yes, I have seen that, but I can't find what to do when I want a button inside of a GUI to change it:

if(button == button23) {
            boolean State1 = FastExamples.NotResetVariables.AnnoyingMessagesEnabled();
            Minecraft.getMinecraft().displayGuiScreen(new GUI());
//Here I want that Boolean1, which is "false" by default to change to "true" when I click the button
config1.load();

	Boolean1 = config1.getBoolean("PMs", "Booleans", false, "Disable to disable by default");
	config1.save();

You can change the values in the config file by first getting them as Property instances, check the methods in Configuration.

I am kinda new to modding and dont't know how to do that :(. (Yet) Anyway, from the methods I figured out that I should probably be using

public Property get(String category, String key, boolean defaultValue)
    {
        return get(category, key, defaultValue, (String) null);
    }

You should probably start invoking those methods, yes.

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.

Property prop = config.get("name","category",false);

prop.getBoolean();

Property prop = config.get("name","category",false);

prop.getBoolean();

And how can I put it into the button? It only works when it is in the preInit.

doesStuff = config.get(name, category, false, "").getBoolean();

Loads a boolean called doesStuff into code. Then I can change that boolean and it will change in the file. In case of a button you use Gui#actionPerformed(GuiButton). Check if the button is the button you want then change the boolean called doesStuff in this example.

I just tried

@Override
protected void actionPerformed(GuiButton button) throws IOException {
	if(button == button2) {
		Minecraft.getMinecraft().displayGuiScreen(new GUI2());
		doesStuff = config1.get(name, category, false, "").getBoolean();
	}

but it doesnt work. Am I doing something wrong?

Ok, in preInit load your config into static variables ie

public static boolean doesStuff;

public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event) {
     Configuration config = new Configuration(event.getSuggestedConfigurationFile());
     doesStuff = config.get(name, category, defaultValue, comment);
}

Then in your Gui#actionPerformed(GuiButton) change doesStuff to what you want to.

It says

Cannot convert from Property to Boolean

Do you not know what that means?

I guess I should make it

public static Property doesStuff;

public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent event) {
     Configuration config = new Configuration(event.getSuggestedConfigurationFile());
     doesStuff = config.get(name, category, defaultValue, comment);
}

but then I can't get it in the Button

If your GUI is something you made for a block then  use TileEntity and store your booleans as NBT tags. 

 

 

However you do this you must realize that ALL variables in the game are reset to 0 every time you restart the game unless you store them periodically such as a file, config, NBT or meta. To get them back you need to set properties at object construction time with the data you get from all those areas you saved them to. All of this requires  extra code to make them restore data .

 

For ex to restore meta in a block you need to actually have a functions get state from meta and meta from state. To restore NBT you need to read and write NBT .

 

In short

Nothing you place there stays placed there unless you save it. 

Disclaimer:  I been told to keep my opinions to myself, to shut up and that I am spreading lies and misinformation or even that my methods are unorthodox and or too irregular. Here are my suggestions take it or leave it.

I have already made a config with these values but I dont't know how to override them. (When the boolean changes)

To override them in gui constructor you do something like

 

 

Gui MyGui {

Boolean boolean1

Boolean boolean2

 

public MyGui() {

boolean1 = Config.getmyBoolean1

boolean2 = Config.getmyBoolean2

}

 

all other gui code here

 

}

 

of course how to set up boolean or what type of boolean you use changes how you assign it. but essentially that's how you do it.

 

So when you boot up the game again your gui is set to your variables saved from last time.

 

Everytime the Gui is constructred it will first populate all your variables.

 

Ideally you wanna do Config load/write before everything then do construction. ALL in preInit()

I do know that already, but how do I change the variable in the config by clicking a button?
