How do you erase a bugged item from a player's inventory?

    I've got a Single Player world where I am testing out various mods, and I've run across a pretty simple.. but rather save-killing... type of bug. I slapped Bibliocraft's "Reading" buff onto a Helmet I was wearing then glanced over at a machine from another Mod (Mekanism I think). As soon as I did that, BOOM CRASH.

    Now the save is stuck in a loop, as soon as I wind it up it recrashes as I'm still staring at the machine. Is there a way to kill that single helmet item in my player inventory file?

    Open your player.dat with a NBT editor, find the item, and delete it.

    The problem I am having is identifying the item with an NBT Editor. I'm not sure what Slot # is the 'Head' equipment slot. Do you know where I can find this info?

    So I use NBTExplorer, go into the Save folder in particular.. and find my player subsection. I navigate to Inventory.. find the item in SLOT 103.. then erase that whole item / section. Save the changes.. load up the save and it still crashes. So I go back into NBTExplorer and.. all of my changes are reverted?

    I have done this routine three times now, making sure my changes are saved and then 'refreshing content from disk' to triple check. Still .. load up the save in game and all my changes get reverted. What am I missing?

    Hmm. To double check a few things, try erasing your entire inventory, or your entire player.dat, just to make sure you are deleting the correct item.

    I have actually moved the player.dat file OUT of the save directory entirely.. then loaded up the save. Get in, and everything is fine.. no items / inventory lost.. no location reset. Nada. It is like there is a backup being swapped in when I make a change or something.

    You will have to move/edit the yourusername.dat, not the player.dat

    I think this has to do with how minecraft now works always in a server... Once something similar happened to me, to solve it i logged in with another account, in offline mode, and then mined the block i was spawning on (it was a block that made u bounce) and then logged in again and.. Poof! Everything's ok :D

    Try using MCedit to remove the block that is causing the problem.
