[1.11.2] @Config creates and loads file, but doesn't create GUI

Jay Avery

Recommended Posts

I made a very simple @Config class with just a few booleans:


@Config(modid = Geomastery.MODID)
public class GeoConfig {

    @Comment("Show the food type in the item tooltip")
    public static boolean foodTooltips = true;

    @Comment("Show the item's decay level with the filled proportion of durability bar as well as colour")
    public static boolean foodDurability = false;

    @Comment("Show the biomes where a crop can grow in the item tooltip")
    public static boolean cropBiomes = true;

    @Comment("Hide unusued and inaccessible vanilla items from Just Enough Items")
    public static boolean hideVanilla = true;
    @Comment("Show simple building block requirements in the item tooltip")
    public static boolean buildReqs = true;


When I delete the config file, it creates it with the properties and comments in the class, and when I change values in the file then the fields in the class change as expected - so it's definitely working in some sense. But the "config" button in the mods list is greyed out. There aren't any crashes or error messages that I can find, but I could post the whole log if that's useful.


I do subscribe to OnConfigChangedEvent in my mod class, but it doesn't get called because there is no GUI to save the config from.


    public static void configChanged(ConfigChangedEvent.OnConfigChangedEvent
            event) {

        if (event.getModID().equals(MODID)) {

            ConfigManager.load(MODID, Config.Type.INSTANCE);



What am I missing? All my code is on github.

Forge doesn't automatically create a config GUI for you. In your @Mod annotation, you need to provide a value for the guiFactory property. It should be the fully-qualified name of a class that implements IModGuiFactory. In your GUI factory, you'll need to make sure that hasConfigGui returns true and that you've implemented createConfigGui.


This is my GUIConfig class which is a small wrapper around FML's GuiConfig class that makes it a bit easier to use. 

Don't make mods if you don't know Java.

Forge does automatically create a config GUI for you if you're using the annotation-based config system and Forge 1.11.2- (commit 25497d3) or later.


You're using Forge 1.11.2-, so you need to update to get the automatic config GUI.

    • We have created a pickaxe.json below MInecraft-MOD-1.17/src/main/resources/data/minecraft.tags.blocks/mineable/pickaxe.json github link  https://github.com/ocome85/MInecraft-MOD-1.17    I can't add Tag and you can't dig. Please help me.
    • Thank you I completely forgot about that. I will attempt to put a delay in  
    • While chugging along making the JSONs by hand (to get an idea of how they need to be generated for each type of block), I cam up with a possibly brilliant idea. Could I somehow make template JSONs and when a new block of a certain type is being generated it will just pull the template and replace certain keywords like "NAME" and "COLOR" instead of all of this getVariantBuilder stuff
    • Hello everyone!     I'm quite new to forge, I used to do development for spigot. I needed to create a GUI Overlays and I found an article https://emxtutorials.wordpress.com/simple-in-game-gui-overlay/ on how to create a gui overlay, but as I understood the classes were renamed. Can you           share a sample code that would perform this function? Thank you in advance
    • I am at my wit's end trying to figure out what keeps going wrong. Reading the error log tells me absolutely nothing I can understand, and after making a blank new server and finally having it work after so long, just to have it break again, is extremely irritating. I would love for someone to decipher what this error log says and point me in a direction, at least, so I'm not swinging blindly.
