[1.15.2-31.1.0] Intellij and Gradlew Forge Hotswap and DCEVM Tutorial


Recommended Posts

This is a small guide for people how want to Speed up their development by swapping changed code during run time, which eliminates the need to constantly restart the Minecraft-Client.

 

To reach our goal we need to install Hotswap and DCEVM.

 

To install DCEVM you first need to download the newest release for java 8 form this link:

https://github.com/dcevm/dcevm/releases

 

Before you continue installing DCEVM you need to first install the right java version that matches your download. Most likely this will be the version 1.8.0_181.

The download list can be found here:

https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase/javase8-archive-downloads.html

 

To now install DCEVM run java -jar "path_to_the_installer/DCEVM-8u181-installer.jar" as Administrator in your console.

 

In the UI that pops up you need to select the java version you just installed and click on Install DCEVM as altjvm. You probably need to do this for the jdk and jre.

 

Next download the hotswap-agent and place the jar file in an appropriate folder.

https://github.com/HotswapProjects/HotswapAgent/releases

 

 

Now the Basic setup is finished, our next step is too setup Intellij and gradle two run correctly.

 

First thing you need to do is to install the HotswapAgent plugin for Intellij.

Plugins can be install under: Settings -> Plugins -> Marketplace

Search for hotswapagent.

 

Now under Tools -> HotswapAgent select Enable HotswapAgent in all configurations

 

Under Keymap search for "Reload Changed Classes" and assign a Keyboard shortcut.

 

Now press double shift and search for "Registry..."

and enable compiler.automake.allow.when.app.running

 

Finally to run the Minecraft client create a new gradle configuration 

with task = "runClient"

and VM options = "-Xmx3G
-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=5010
-XXaltjvm=dcevm
-XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions
-javaagent:path_to_your\hotswap-agent-1.4.0.jar"

 

Now your good to go.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to comment below this is my first tutorial so 

if you have any advise it would be more than welocome.

I hope this is helpful for you have a nice Day.

Thanks for the how-to. Took a while to get it working even when reading this. I don't know if I would have had the patience to figure it out without it. XD Just a few notes.

 

1. You need to press 'Ok' on Intellij to apply changes to plugins. I definitely didn't spend 20 minutes trying to figure this out.

2. The vm option doesn't seem to be needed. The hot swap plugin didn't seem needed either. Was able to hotswap without both, but DCEVM needs to be installed.

3. Under Build the 'Build Project' and 'Recompile' option (and their shortcuts) works just fine, so no need to remap keys.

4. Everything other than installing DCEVM is unnecessary.

Hey TheZombie1999, thanks for the guide but I'm really new to modding and I've just setup my development environment yesterday for the first time and I really need to be able to hotswap, it's really slowing me down to restart minecraft over and over again..

 

But I couldn't work this out, then I saw ZDoctor's comment then start over from scratch, removed everything I've installed and just installed DCVEM for java jdk 1.8.0_181 and jre 1.8.0_181. It is now installed but what's next? I should have to do something in order hotswap to work right? Something is missing and I don't know what to do. Even if It's correct I don't know how to hotswap either, I mean when I run the client if I make any changes how can I hotswap? Nothing happens when I click rebuild.

 

Sorry if this is a very dumb question but as I've said I'm pretty new to these things.

 

I've attached my runClient config.

Hi, I'm current dcevm8/11 maintainer and my son is keen Minecraft player. Is the java8 edition still relevant for Minecraft developers? I can port G1 garbage collector with some hotswap performance optimizations from java11(dcevm11) to java8(dcevm8), if the community is interested in.

 

Btw, current dcevm11 is at https://github.com/TravaOpenJDK/trava-jdk-11-dcevm , optimized with another new features at https://github.com/TravaOpenJDK/trava-jdk-11-dcevm-staged

It's definitely still relevant for Minecraft mod development. I don't think Minecraft Forge officially supports anything newer than Java 8 yet.

Same thing for me... I've tried with both the hotswap plugin and without, and no changes occur. I've verified everything is setup correctly. Also not sure of the difference between "Recompile" under Build, and "Reload Changed Classes" under debug actions (I assume it makes no difference in debug mode?). Or if only certain changes are detected during runtime.

    • When i click a jar file there's a black window popping out for a second then closing i don't know what to do, it's been happening for 2 days already
    • Hello, I don't have much experience with forge but I have some java knowledge, I want to add a button that says "Explore New Packs" to the Pause Screen that opens when we enter a world in the game and press the "esc" button, but I couldn't understand it (or I don't know how to use it), although I did research from artificial intelligence or different places. I was told that I can do it using mixins but I have no idea how to do it, can you explain step by step
    • We need the crash report or debug.log, as explained in the FAQ
