Hidendra Posted July 31, 2012 Share Posted July 31, 2012 Hello. Since Tekkit v3 was introduced a requirement on Java 7 was made. As a developer I know how important backwards compatibility is, and requiring a version of Java some can't get for one mod is pretty crazy. I've been building Tekkit versions compatible with Java 1.6 since 3.0.4 with very minimal changes. I recommend that the developers take note and too do the same, then everyone is happy. ---- no ---- The _diff has the changed files over the official version of Tekkit. Also of note, only NetherOres was compiled with Java 7 (with no target to 1.6 -- it doesn't use 1.7 features). CodeChickenCore only contains a fix for where it is hardcoded to only accept CRLF line endings not LF. So, given how small of a change it is to make NetherOres work on 1.6 (-target it or edit it manually) I believe the tekkit devs should seriously consider fixing this. It will make everyone happier that they aren't forced to install a specific version of Java :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
