Changing save location

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to change the save location of my modding setup? Right now, everything is saved in "D:\Programming\Minecraft". But I would like to be able to work on a second mod in the future. Therefore I want my current mod to be in "D:\Programming\Minecraft\New folder".

Would this be possible without corrupting files? And do I need to change anything in eclipse so it can find the right path?

You can do this just fine. All you will have to do is tell your IDE the new location of your project.

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.

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

I tried doing so and messed up. I reinstalled everything and it's working fine now. I have one problem though, which is getting back my original code. I still have all the files, it's just hard to get them back into eclipse.

 

Things I have tried:
1) Placing them in the "bin" folder, where all files are saved. They didn't show up in eclipse however.

2) Opening them in various programs, but it gave me messud up text instead. (understandable as they are .class files)

3) dragging the files into eclipse. Eclipse gave me an error: "The Class File Viewer cannot handle the given input ('org.eclipse.ui.ide.FileStoreEditorInput')."

 

Any suggestions? I'm new to programming but determined to learn. I don't mind creating all files and packages again, but rewriting all code would be painfull.

Code goes in src/main/java, resources in src/main/resources.

 

Thanks. It's kinda stupid how I didn't think of this before. I found the files in the "bin" folder and just assumed those were the files I needed.

bin is where eclipse stores compiled code and assets, you should never touch it and don't copy it when you copy the project.
