I recently setup the Forge Update checker for my Minecraft Mod.
I used the official Forge documentation for setting it up.
I set the Update.json file correctly and uploaded it to gist and obtained the permalink
for the raw json file.
It worked. However when I make a change to the gist that is when I add a new version number,
Forge update checker doesn’t work.
It returned the result TARGET UP TO DATE even though it was outdated what should I do?
I am not terribly familiar with the update checker system, but perhaps you could check out an open source mod that uses the system, and see how they have done it. For example the mod Cyclic.
Well nevermind I found out that Gists permalinks take some time to update the cache.
They take like five to six minutes to do it. I was impatient.
But anyways thx for your help. It works perfectly.
