I’m trying to prepare eclipse and forge so that I can write a small plugin. I’m following Home - Forge Documentation as well as Setting up the Workspace - Minecraft Forge 1.16.4 Modding Tutorial - YouTube, but in the many times I have run gradlew genEclipseRuns in the command prompt from the correct directory, I get this:
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
- What went wrong:
Could not resolve all files for configuration ‘:runtimeClasspathCopy’.
Could not find net.minecraftforge:forge:1.16.5-36.2.39_mapped_official_1.16.5.
Searched in the following locations:
- file:/C:/Users/Jack Harrington/.gradle/caches/forge_gradle/bundeled_repo/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.16.5-36.2.39_mapped_official_1.16.5/forge-1.16.5-36.2.39_mapped_official_1.16.5.pom
- file:/C:/Users/Jack Harrington/.gradle/caches/forge_gradle/bundeled_repo/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.16.5-36.2.39_mapped_official_1.16.5/forge-1.16.5-36.2.39_mapped_official_1.16.5.jar
I have noticed that there is not a bundeled_repo folder in forge_gradle by default, but there is a forge-1.16.5-36.2.39_mapped_ official_1.16.5.pom under minecraft_user_repo instead. If I copy this file to a folder called bundeled_repo that I create (including the child directories), the error still appears.
The video I mentioned suggests to run gradlew genEclipseRuns --refresh-dependencies&&gradlew eclipse, but that throws the exact same error.
There will be a sister post on the forge forums asking the same question.
If you need anything else just ask.
