Overlay gui not rendering when hovering over entities


Recommended Posts

I have made an overlay gui with some information of the player but when you hover over an entity it dissapears.


package com.ptsmods.morecommands.miscellaneous;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;

public class InfoOverlay extends Gui {

	private Minecraft mc;
	public InfoOverlay() {

		drawString(this.mc.fontRenderer, string, defaultWidth, row*10 + defaultHeight, Integer.parseInt("FFFFFF", 16));
	private void drawStrings(String... strings) {
		for (int x = 0; x < strings.length; x++) {
			drawString(strings[x], x);
	private TextFormatting getRandomColor() {

			Reference.lastColor = Reference.getRandomColor("WHITE");
		return Reference.lastColor;
    private List<String> parseInfoOverlayConfig(List<String> config) {
    	Minecraft mc = Minecraft.getMinecraft();
    	List<String> output = new ArrayList<String>();
    	Reference.setVariables = new HashMap<String, String>();
    	try {
	    	for (String line : config) {

		    		if (line.equals("") || !line.split("//")[0].equals("")) output.add(line.split("//")[0]);
    	} catch (NullPointerException e) {}
    	return output;

How I render it (in ClientEventHandler.class):

public void onRenderGui(RenderGameOverlayEvent.Post event) {
	if (event.getType() == ElementType.EXPERIENCE && Reference.isInfoOverlayEnabled()) new InfoOverlay();

    • So I've gotten this error and I tried fixing it the way another form did, but it came with no success and I am truly lost as this isn't well documented. Doing `gradlew build` shows: My gradlew path is the following: C:/     Gradle         bin         docs         init.d         lib         src         LICENSE         NOTICE         README The bin is added to the system environment variables "Path" list.   Any help? Thanks!
    • I downloaded the Forge Server Installer and installed the server to my root directory, then I tried to launch the server and got nothing but a log file, it did not even generate the files. This is all that is in the log files, I am running the latest Java 8 version and JDK 17 version (Adoptium Temurin 17 LTS). // Debug.txt [28Jan2022 17:09:25.344] [main/INFO] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.Launcher/MODLAUNCHER]: ModLauncher running: args [--gameDir, ., --launchTarget, fmlserver, --fml.forgeVersion, 36.2.23, --fml.mcpVersion, 20210115.111550, --fml.mcVersion, 1.16.5, --fml.forgeGroup, net.minecraftforge] [28Jan2022 17:09:25.346] [main/INFO] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.Launcher/MODLAUNCHER]: ModLauncher 8.0.9+86+master.3cf110c starting: java version 17.0.2 by Eclipse Adoptium [28Jan2022 17:09:25.354] [main/DEBUG] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.LaunchServiceHandler/MODLAUNCHER]: Found launch services [minecraft,testharness,fmlclient,fmlserver] // Latest.txt [28Jan2022 17:09:25.344] [main/INFO] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.Launcher/MODLAUNCHER]: ModLauncher running: args [--gameDir, ., --launchTarget, fmlserver, --fml.forgeVersion, 36.2.23, --fml.mcpVersion, 20210115.111550, --fml.mcVersion, 1.16.5, --fml.forgeGroup, net.minecraftforge] [28Jan2022 17:09:25.346] [main/INFO] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.Launcher/MODLAUNCHER]: ModLauncher 8.0.9+86+master.3cf110c starting: java version 17.0.2 by Eclipse Adoptium  
    • Here is the log file https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y456kYGNFfgbNDpoE3cW735JKRV-WRt1/view?usp=sharing

    • I have read the documentation and run the example once, but attach is not executed. When the subscribed Entity is called, attach is called, and then MyCapabilityImplementation is called. fill in the code in the place corresponding to MyCapabilityImplementation. This is how I understand it, am I wrong And I'm not sure what the need for the ResourceLocation string is. It says there are no restrictions, so does that mean it is an ID for identification purposes? Main public void registerCapabilities(RegisterCapabilitiesEvent event) { MyCapability.register(event); }     The problem with not running has been resolved. I had misinterpreted it. MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(MyCapabilityAttacher.class); So the only thing I'm concerned about is the correctness of future development procedures.
