[ 1.15.1 ] How do you create a timer?


Dr.Nickenstein

Recommended Posts

Does your entity have a method that runs periodicly? Like a tick event or an event for the AI? If there is then I can provide you with a crude example, but be aware that it won't be the most preformant one, so be sure to not to use too many of these entities at the same time or you're going to lag.

procedure WakeMeUp(Integer plusTime);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to plusTime do begin
    println('One more minute!');
    Sleep(1000);
  end;
  println('Okay, nothing to worry, I''m alive!');
  println('So... somebody can give me a coffee?');
  println('I know it''s Pascal, and not Java, but I love it :D.');
end;

I have a damageEntity method, so i want this entity to be hit, apply stats for some time, then apply new stats.

You said that the stat applying when the entity is hit is done, could you post your entity's code somewhere?

procedure WakeMeUp(Integer plusTime);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to plusTime do begin
    println('One more minute!');
    Sleep(1000);
  end;
  println('Okay, nothing to worry, I''m alive!');
  println('So... somebody can give me a coffee?');
  println('I know it''s Pascal, and not Java, but I love it :D.');
end;

The first stage (applying stats) works fine, i just need the timer, so i can set the other stats when the timer has ran out. this is the pastebin of the entity's code https://pastebin.com/mJ7i8mEG

The problem is making the timer, do you know how to help me?

You need to count ticks in Entity::tick.

Yes, but i don't know how...

public class MyEntity extends SomeEntityClass {
	
	private int timer = 0;

	public void tick() {
		super.tick();
		timer++;
	}

}

It's pretty simple.

This is what I exactly wanted to know, if you already have that method overidden.
For example:
 

Quote

private int counter = 0;
private boolean increaseStats = false;

@Override
public void Tick() {
  super.Tick();
  if (increaseStats)
  {
    //<code while counting>
    counter++;
    if (counter >= <timeInSeconds>*20) //It calculates your time in ticks
    {
      //<code when you're counter done>
      counter = 0;
      increaseStats = false;
    }	
  }
}

 

(You should set the increaseStats to true when you want it to count the time.)

No, the problem is another one. I already have a method. I can't use the tick() one

If you already have code in your tick method, write everything after it.

procedure WakeMeUp(Integer plusTime);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to plusTime do begin
    println('One more minute!');
    Sleep(1000);
  end;
  println('Okay, nothing to worry, I''m alive!');
  println('So... somebody can give me a coffee?');
  println('I know it''s Pascal, and not Java, but I love it :D.');
end;

If you look at my example, it starts counting when you set the boolean to true. You can set the boolean to true in the damageEntity method and set the stats in that, then do other changes after the counting is done.

By the way, this is gonna freeze the game:
 

	int i = 0;
        long time = System.currentTimeMillis();
        while(time != time+5000)
        {
            i++;
        }
        if(time < 1)
        {
            this.getAttribute(SharedMonsterAttributes.MOVEMENT_SPEED).setBaseValue(0.20f);
        }

(From the code you pasted)

procedure WakeMeUp(Integer plusTime);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to plusTime do begin
    println('One more minute!');
    Sleep(1000);
  end;
  println('Okay, nothing to worry, I''m alive!');
  println('So... somebody can give me a coffee?');
  println('I know it''s Pascal, and not Java, but I love it :D.');
end;

Then you are doing something wrong.
 

public class MyEntity extends SomeEntity {

	public int timer = 0;

	public void damageEntity(DamageSource source, float damageAmount) {
		// DO STAT INCREASES
		timer = 300;
	}

	public void tick() {
		if (timer > 0) {
			timer--;
			if (timer == 0) {
				// DO OTHER STAT STUFF.
			}
		}
	}

}

That is an example. If you don't know how to program in Java then you really shouldn't be making a mod.

It java, but it's a pseudo (example) code, you need to implement everything for yourself.

procedure WakeMeUp(Integer plusTime);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to plusTime do begin
    println('One more minute!');
    Sleep(1000);
  end;
  println('Okay, nothing to worry, I''m alive!');
  println('So... somebody can give me a coffee?');
  println('I know it''s Pascal, and not Java, but I love it :D.');

This is an even better example, if you don't manage to use this, then learn java first.

procedure WakeMeUp(Integer plusTime);
var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to plusTime do begin
    println('One more minute!');
    Sleep(1000);
  end;
  println('Okay, nothing to worry, I''m alive!');
  println('So... somebody can give me a coffee?');
  println('I know it''s Pascal, and not Java, but I love it :D.');
end;

That method doesn't work, it makes my entity stay still forever when i hit it. I'll try to find a better solution

Post your code. You probably forgot to call the super methods because I didn't include them in my example.

oh yeah i forgot super.tick() i believe. I'll check if that was the issue. Now it doesn't run in an infinite loop but i need to check if it actually applies the effects once the timer runs out

    • After uninstalling this mod, everything works! Thanks!
    • I had been playing on this fabric server for about a month with some friend and one day it just stopped starting, can anyone help me understand what the cause is? https://mclo.gs/2jop3r5    
    • The mobs are moving normally for a second, then freeze, then go back to normal, and this repeats. I describe this as mob lag, bc they stutter as if they were lagging. I don't have the best wifi, but that shouldn't matter since its 10mbps which is enough for a server. I have 8 gigs of ram for it, no optimizations have worked, if there is anything more you may need to help lmk, ill describe.

    • Thank you so much! Unfortunately before reading this I reinstalled my java installer. Now when I try to open the forge installer I receive an error message stating 'Unable to install Java' even though I have definitely downloaded and installed the latest version. Any idea what this could be or how I could fix it?  
    • IT WORKED! THANK YOU!
