    Hi, can anyone help me understand why my Paint is throwing errors?

    The error appears to be caused by Players.getLocal().getLevel() throwing errors until the login handler has finished. I say this because the logs show login handler starting, and then repetitive errors pointing to my codeline 143, and the errors stop as soon as the log shows that the login handler finished. I can show the log entries if that will help.

    This is line 143 in my code:

    g.drawString("Combat skill level: " + Players.getLocal().getLevel(), 10, 135);

    I recently returned to botting after taking a 1-2 year break, so I had to update my scripts for the deprecated items since I last played. That included changing getLocalPlayer().getLevel() to Players.getLocal().getLevel() but I don't see how that is the problem.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    one solution could be null checking if youre logged in or if the local player is not null before painting the paint text and draw the text

    getlocalplayer to players.getlevel should not affect that

    in your onpaint method, something like this pseudocode

    if (!loggedin) {
    wait to load in
    }  else {

    `Players.getLocal()` can return null, so you need to null check or catch the exception.

    int level = 0
    Player me = Players.getLocal()
    if (me != null) {
      level = me.getLevel()
    g.drawString("Combat skill level: " + level, 10, 135);
    try {
      g.drawString("Combat skill level: " + Players.getLocal().getLevel(), 10, 135);
    } catch (Exception e) {
      Logger.log("Unable to get player level: " + e.getMessage())

    Oh no, I fell for the 'failed to do a null check"' thing. Thank you both for the responses. 

    Must remember null checks. Must remember null checks. Must remember null checks.

    Just a quick update. This one solved my issue. Thanks again for the helpful responses!

    Player player = Players.getLocal();
    if (player != null) {
        g.drawString("Combat Level: " + player.getLevel(), 10, 90);
