Java Error - Beginner [FIXED]

Postby Areness » 20 Feb 2019, 00:23

First off I'm really sorry if this is the wrong section of the board to post this on, but I could not find any post containing the same error I am currently encountering when trying to start the programm. I did find similar errors through the search function, but the fixes mentioned in these threads did not work in my case. Now to the error:

I initially installed Forge and then updated Java, since it did need an update at that time to be able to run Forge. It started buttersmooth and I'd already sunken about 3 hours into it before I decided to download the card images through the inherent pic downloader. Forge still worked for about 3 more hours, before it suddenly crashed. When I tried to open it again, the programm froze on the "Opening Main Window" splash screen, which I believe is the last before the programm actually starts up. It then produces this error message:

java.lang.NullPointerException

As I stated above, I tried searching for fixes on the forums but to no avail. Fixes included deleting the quest save files, deleting card images, using different versions of Java ( that one might've been googling though) or replacing certain files in the /appdata directory. Like aforementioned none of them worked so I decided to wipe my rig clean of Java and then wipe Forge for a following clean installation of both. It has to be said that I did not found a way of removing Forge but blatantly shift+deleting it, in my main directory and in /appdata.
As you can guess It did not fix the problem, it persists on every start-up.

I am currently using forge-gui-desktop-1.6.21 and JavaDK 1.8.0_202 on OS: Windows 8.1.
I'm pretty much at my wits end here since I'm not a programmer at all and could only make wild guesses as to what this error actually means.

Every bit of help is appreciated.

Kind regards,

Areness

Forge > Game Settings > Preferences > Open User Directory button. Preferences folder >

rename/backup forge.preferences and try, same with quest folder.

If you want to do a clean installation and keep all files in the same directory you can do it with Forge Launcher. Run the tool in a new folder and install Forge with the option "Install all in the same folder creating profile.properties file". https://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=21514 hope it's helpful.

Thanks a bunch =D,

the first steps you mentioned did not work for me, but a clean installation with everything in the same folder through Forge Launcher did.
