Entering
Code: Select all
java -jar XMageLauncher-0.3.4.jar
does also not work?
That's how the file is names unchanged.

Trying to run the Launcher on Ubuntu 14.04

Running "java -jar XMageLauncher-0.3.6.jar" from terminal throws "java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError"

Any ideas? could run it before, but then the launcher notified me there's a newer version available.

Install java 8 JRE on your system and execute the launcher with java 8.

Need some help please! :(

I logged onto Xmage tonight. The changes had the cards so large they weren't fitting on my screen. So I started messing around with the settings and by accident increased the size of everything so large that nothing fit on my screen. Yeah I know, not the smartest thing to do, but it was an accident. Nevertheless, I couldn't think of anything to fix this situation... so I deleted xmage totally and tried to relaunch it. Now, the launcher won't open and I'm not sure what to try/do. I'm on Windows 10.

The last time I got it to work by creating another user as Xmage and placing the jar file there.. and it worked. This time it's not working for whatever reason. Any ideas? I'd love to have xmage up and working prior to Shadows

Thanks,
Mikeee

post 1.2 - Re-downloaded xmage jar and opened it to see the launcher like this Image

I just picked up a new Windows 10 laptop and I'm having issues trying to open Xmage Launcher. I'm not too adept with the inner workings with Java and all that but any time I try and open the launcher with Java, the prompt window blips on the screen then disappears with no apparent effect (no other windows open or anything like that).

I'm at a loss for what to do.

Could be a few things, but try this: click on your Start icon and type CMD in there, you should get the command line as one of the results, right-click it and run it as administrator; once you're at the command line type CD, a space, and then the full path to where your XMage launcher is (C:\something\something etc.), and press enter, this will Change Directory to the one where your launcher is so that whatever commands you use apply to that specific folder; next copy the following command and press enter again:

Code: Select all
java -jar XMageLauncher-0.3.8.jar
This will try to make Java open that file (the launcher), and if for some reason it can't it should say why, and that might lead this mystery somewhere. Or it might just launch XMage, in which case all the better.

I can get the initial screen to pop up (the one that prompts for the client to be opened, server, etc.) but it looks like Mikeee's pictured above.

Also, a report from CMD:

Try moving the Xmage folder somewhere else outside of Program Files (x86), like say for example your documents folder, and try again, see what happens.

I've been having some trouble getting access to the server, any help would be appreciated.

After the client loads and I attempt to log in, I get a message saying the server is most likely down, although that does not seem to be the case from what I can gather from friends.

I have tried deleting the launcher and re-installing xmage, but it does not seem to help.

I am using a mac running OS X 11.4

Attached is an image of the message I get. Again any help at all would be great!

thanks.

I tried to mimic these instructions and it worked! The launcher popped up and was prompted to update xmage and all was well when I hit launch client. The client opened up and worked perfect. However, after I close out. The launcher still works, but when I hit "launch client" it prompts the client console but the client never opens. Any help would appreciated.

I attached a txt file of what shows up in the client console.

I CANNOT get the file to open. I go to my download folder, and attempt to open using JAVA and I get an error, telling me it is unable to launch the application. I am trying to open via JAVAWS and nothing seems to work. I am running windows 8.1. I am positive that JAVA is up to date, I have re downloaded it and verified that it is up to date.

WS is the web starter, the launcher should be opened with javaw.exe (without the "s"), you should find that inside the same folder ("bin") where you found javaws.exe.
