NoSuchMethodExceptions on world load


Recommended Posts

I am pretty new to modding so please keep that in mind :D

I want to disable all vanilla swords and tried it with the following code (basically just registering a custom event handler using MinecraftForge#EVENT_BUS):

@SubscribeEvent(priority = EventPriority.HIGHEST)
    public void onDamageTaken(LivingHurtEvent event) {
        // only consider any calculations if the source is the player itself
        Entity entity = event.getSource().getEntity();
        if (entity instanceof EntityPlayer) {
            EntityPlayer player = (EntityPlayer) entity;
            // only look for the main hand
            ItemStack stack = player.getHeldItemMainhand();
            if (!ItemStackTools.isEmpty(stack)) {
                if (stack.getItem() instanceof ItemSword) {

But for some odd reasons, as soon as I load into a world, I get a `java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: net.minecraft.util.DamageSource.getEntity()Lnet/minecraft/entity/Entity;`. To be honest, I have no idea what is going wrong here D:

If I run the code within eclipse by using the gradle runClient command all works fine. But if I build the jar using `gradle build` and add it to the mods folder, the game crashes on world load.

Here is the full stack trace: https://pastebin.com/3TrnL5NS

I have a general idea what is happening though. Not every entitiy has a damage source I guess. And it looks like the Bat is one of them. But how would I check for that too? 

I tried it early on with `event.getSource().getDamageType()` but that through the same exception on mobs added by oder mods.


Any help is appreciated,

It seems that the part of the code is not obfuscated. Could you post your build.gradle file and the log from the gradle build command?

I. Stellarium for Minecraft: Configurable Universe for Minecraft! (WIP)

II. Stellar Sky, Better Star Rendering&Sky Utility mod, had separated from Stellarium.

Rather than "gradle build", try gradlew build (run the script that came with the Forge installation). And, I don't know what Eclipse might be doing to gradle, but be safe by opening a command window and running the gradlew script from a command prompt.

The debugger is a powerful and necessary tool in any IDE, so learn how to use it. You'll be able to tell us more and get better help here if you investigate your runtime problems in the debugger before posting.
