    Default .class compiling error

    Hello, everyone.
    I just registered today;
    For the past couple of days I've been trying to modify a .class file which is part of a mod for a game I've been playing.

    It doesn't seem to find any errors in the modifications I've made, but it seems to have issues with lines from the original class file.
    (I've tried compiling both my modified version and the original)
    I'm brand new to java so I'm not sure exactly how to fix the errors.

    Here's the code, highlighted in blue are the modifications I made.

    public final class EnumFaces extends Enum

    public static final EnumFaces Normal;
    public static final EnumFaces Angry;
    public static final EnumFaces Sad;
    public static final EnumFaces Happy;
    public static final EnumFaces Tired;
    public static final EnumFaces Shy;
    public static final EnumFaces Custom1;
    private static final EnumFaces $VALUES[];

    public static EnumFaces[] values()
    return (EnumFaces[])$VALUES.clone();

    public static EnumFaces valueOf(String name)
    return (EnumFaces)Enum.valueOf(EnumFaces, name);

    private EnumFaces(String s, int i)
    super(s, i);

    Normal = new EnumFaces("Normal", 0);
    Angry = new EnumFaces("Angry", 1);
    Sad = new EnumFaces("Sad", 2);
    Happy = new EnumFaces("Happy", 3);
    Tired = new EnumFaces("Tired", 4);
    Shy = new EnumFaces("Shy", 5);
    Custom1 = new EnumFaces("Custom1", 6);
    $VALUES = (new EnumFaces[] {
    Normal, Angry, Sad, Happy, Tired, Shy, Custom 1

    Here are the errors that javac found:

    EnumFaces.java:2: error: classes cannot directly extend java.lang.Enum
    public final class EnumFaces extends Enum

    EnumFaces.java:20: error: cannot find symbol
    return (EnumFaces)Enum.valueOf(EnumFaces, name);

    symbol: variable EnumFaces
    location: class EnumFaces
    EnumFaces.java:25: error: contructor Enum in class Enum(E) cannot be applied to given types:
    super(s, i);

    required: String, int
    found: String, int, String, int
    reason: actual and formal argument lists differ in length
    where E is a type-variable:
    E extends Enum(E) declared in class Enum
    3 errors

    Thanks in advance

    Default Re: .class compiling error

    You have to wrap your code into this
    [key]<YOUR CODE GOES HERE?[/key]. Replace key with word code in order this to work.
    About the third error, the constructor requires the 1st argument to be a String and the 2nd argument to be an int,but you pass a string,an int,a string and an int

    about the enum class read this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...va-extend-enum
