    I literally don't see the issue here. I'm getting a null with i.setAmount

    Heres the code:

    Code (Java):
    Heres the error:

    Heres the config:

    Heres the debug message:

    I have a feeling I'm doing something wrong with setAmount with the itemstack. I have no idea. Im possibly spelling something wrong. Please look xD

  2. Either getConfig() or getInt() returns null.
    Is the broadcastMessage visible?
  3. Joshb_


    Yes, its the +1 message you see above the error
  4. Neither getConfig() nor getInt() can return null if the method is in the main-class. What is this i that you set the amount of?
  5. Joshb_


    It's not in the main class, it doesn't actually matter since its a custom config. I'm setting the amount of and itemstack (i)
  6. I mean... the definition of this ItemStack would be nice... how do you get it, are you simply instantiating it?

    I figured it out, I have the material spelt wrong in the config for the Minecraft version I'm using.

    Heres the itemstack anyways.

    Code (Java):
    public static ItemStack boarder() {
            int amount = getConfig().getInt("Items.Boarder.Amount");
            ItemStack i = UMaterial.valueOf(getConfig().getString("Items.Boarder.Material"),
                    (byte) getConfig().getInt("Items.Boarder.Damage"));
            Bukkit.broadcastMessage("item= "+i.toString());
            Bukkit.broadcastMessage("amount= "+getConfig().getInt("Items.Boarder.Amount"));
            ItemMeta im = i.getItemMeta();
            return i;
  8. Talking about spelling... if you aren't talking about some kind of boar (the animal), you write border without an 'a' :p

    After the many updates iv put out with this plugin, I never noticed that/kept spelling it that way LOL thx

  10. I mean there are only 3 possibilities
    i == null
    getConfig() == null
    getInt() == null

    Check those 3
  11. getInt() can't return null, if nothing is set it will just return 0
