Include the Kotlin runtime in Forge


Alex Sim

Recommended Posts

I know, unusual request, but Kotlin is now, more than ever, the go-to JVM language for many programmers, and this would allow modders to use the provided libraries without each of them having to include it in their mods.

By runtime I mean kotlin-stdlib, kotlin-reflect, kotlin-coroutines, kotlin-stdlib-common, kotlin-stdlib-jdk7 and kotlin-stdlib-jdk8 (possibly updated to the latest version)

 

BTW: I am able to make mods in Kotlin without using Forgelin (using just the kotlin libraries), I just use the @JvmStatic annotation on the functions inside my RegistryEvents object and it works like a charm; EG:

 

@Mod.EventBusSubscriber(bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD)
object RegistryEvents {
    @JvmStatic @SubscribeEvent
    fun onBlocksRegistry(event: RegistryEvent.Register<Block>) {
        //Do some stuff here
    }

    @JvmStatic @SubscribeEvent
    fun onItemsRegistry(event: RegistryEvent.Register<Item>) {
        //Do some stuff here
    }
}

Won't happen. It was done in the past with Scala and just caused problems galore ("please update Scala!" - "No, please don't, my mod won't work on the newest version!"). Additionally the scala libraries are one of the biggest bandwith hogs on the Forge download server.

 

Minecraft targets Java, so that's what Forge targets.

Just don't use kotlin-reflect then (It is marked as Stable Incremental Release (SIR)), the other components i mentioned are marked as Fully Stable (FS), which, according to the Kotlin documentation website, guarantees future incremental releases to be backwards compatible.

 

Also, Kotlin doesn't seem that bloaty to me

You are the 1%, just because you use something doesnt mean everyone does.

 

Forge will never again ship an extra language by default. you can already get a standardized language loader that you only need to download once. 

 

That's why we built that system.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

    • I had a similar issue to what you do above. Given this is an old post, you've probably sorted this now In my case, I had Java (JDK) 22 installed. After uninstalling that and installing 17.0.11 (having both installed gives the same error), then running the startserver.bat worked for me. I managed to get to the EULA section and then start my server correctly- I hope it helps anyone else who may have this issue!
    • Make a test with another Launcher like MultiMC, AT Launcher or Technic Launcher
    • I opened up Minecraft today for the first time in a month and whenever I try and play forge I get an error 1 message. I restarted my computer, tried reinstalling both Minecraft and Forge and have updated all of my drivers. Nothing seems to work so I'm stumped. I have absolutely no mods installed ATM so I have no idea what could be causing the problem. I hope yall are able to help.   DebugLog:   [19May2024 20:33:51.600] [main/INFO] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.Launcher/MODLAUNCHER]: ModLauncher running: args [--username, dmoy18, --version, 1.20.1-forge-47.2.0, --gameDir, C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft, --assetsDir, C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\assets, --assetIndex, 5, --uuid, c083972cd92d4dd2894beb25b82ebe82, --accessToken, ????????, --clientId, MDljMzIwMjYtOTJiNS00YWUxLTk1M2EtN2ExMGExZWM0MDAw, --xuid, 2535417310772497, --userType, msa, --versionType, release, --quickPlayPath, C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\quickPlay\java\1716168829421.json, --launchTarget, forgeclient, --fml.forgeVersion, 47.2.0, --fml.mcVersion, 1.20.1, --fml.forgeGroup, net.minecraftforge, --fml.mcpVersion, 20230612.114412] [19May2024 20:33:51.604] [main/INFO] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.Launcher/MODLAUNCHER]: ModLauncher 10.0.9+10.0.9+main.dcd20f30 starting: java version 17.0.8 by Microsoft; OS Windows 11 arch amd64 version 10.0 [19May2024 20:33:51.634] [main/DEBUG] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.LaunchServiceHandler/MODLAUNCHER]: Found launch services [fmlclientdev,forgeclient,minecraft,forgegametestserverdev,fmlserveruserdev,fmlclient,fmldatauserdev,forgeserverdev,forgeserveruserdev,forgeclientdev,forgeclientuserdev,forgeserver,forgedatadev,fmlserver,fmlclientuserdev,fmlserverdev,forgedatauserdev,testharness,forgegametestserveruserdev] [19May2024 20:33:51.653] [main/DEBUG] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.NameMappingServiceHandler/MODLAUNCHER]: Found naming services : [srgtomcp] [19May2024 20:33:51.668] [main/DEBUG] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.LaunchPluginHandler/MODLAUNCHER]: Found launch plugins: [mixin,eventbus,slf4jfixer,object_holder_definalize,runtime_enum_extender,capability_token_subclass,accesstransformer,runtimedistcleaner] [19May2024 20:33:51.681] [main/DEBUG] [cpw.mods.modlauncher.TransformationServicesHandler/MODLAUNCHER]: Discovering transformation services [19May2024 20:33:51.688] [main/DEBUG] [net.minecraftforge.fml.loading.FMLPaths/CORE]: Path GAMEDIR is C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft [19May2024 20:33:51.689] [main/DEBUG] [net.minecraftforge.fml.loading.FMLPaths/CORE]: Path MODSDIR is C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\mods [19May2024 20:33:51.689] [main/DEBUG] [net.minecraftforge.fml.loading.FMLPaths/CORE]: Path CONFIGDIR is C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\config [19May2024 20:33:51.689] [main/DEBUG] [net.minecraftforge.fml.loading.FMLPaths/CORE]: Path FMLCONFIG is C:\Users\dmoyf\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\config\fml.toml
