Updates

Errata

This edition of Sams Teach Yourself Mod Development for Minecraft in 24 Hours supports version 1.8 only. However, there are several ways in which you can figure out how to implement subjects covered in this book for other versions of Minecraft. Chapter 24 covers installing IRC and connecting to #minecraftforge. This channel contains a lot of people who work on mods every day and should be able to help you. There is also http://www.minecraftforge.net/forum/, which is a forum in which you can ask for help. Finally, Eclipse has very powerful search options which can help you find the relevant code in the project. Ctrl + F will open up the search menu in which you can type anything you're looking for, such as Dungeon, and it will show you all of the files which are related to the Dungeon.
