Custom Sound "(The system cannot find the path specified)"


Recommended Posts

Hey All,


Been trying to add a custom sound using Forge for several hours now, and it keeps throwing the same error.


        		new File(mc.mcDataDir, "resources/sounds/spec/levelup.ogg"));


public void preInit(FMLPreInitializationEvent evt)
	MinecraftForge.EVENT_BUS.register(new ClientEventHookContainerClass());


            this.worldObj.playSoundAtEntity(this, "spec.levelup", 0.85F, 1.2F);


And for the sake of all that is good, please don't ask me to "check if the file is actually there." As if I haven't already. The file is located within the minecraft jar is the resources/sounds/spec directory, yet for some reason it consistently says that the file cannot be found, and mc.mcDataDir returns '.'


Very strange.

You are referencing to a path of your local file system. You have to reference to a path within the minecraft.jar / classpath. So instead of using:

new File(mc.mcDataDir, "resources/sounds/spec/levelup.ogg")

you use

This thread makes me sad because people just post copy-paste-ready code when it's obvious that the OP has little to no programming experience. This is not how learning works.
