My mod MCImproved just was overwritten by one of my other projects. I lost all the code. All i have is the zip download. Is there a way to get that in eclipse with all the classes, textures and such? Help is much appreciated!
Well, the class files can be decompressed into java files, but the problem will be with deobfuscation. As you probably know, minecraft classes and methods get random names so all of the methods in your mod have to match them (this is done automatically when you compile it). So if you do get it decompressed, it will still have the random names for classes and methods, so you'll have to go back through each class and rename all of the methods in order to use it in your dev environment.
Once you get the project decompiled, and you can see your method names, you will likely see functions like "akw.func_12345f" or some other nonsense. You'll have to replace all of those with what used to be there manually, but the overall structure should be intact.
