Old player trying to log back in

Postby hyperchord24 » 02 Aug 2019, 22:01

I haven't played since the server move and it freezes when I launch client. I've read up on the way to clear this issue up, but I cannot find the java file I need to edit. I've talked to the developer, I've looked through all my library files and directories but I can't find anything that even looks like the filename I should be editing. I use a macbook OS El Capitan. I would love for some help

If you can't fine java preferences file then:
* go to etc hosts and change it -- add "127.0.0.1 xmage.de"
* start xmage again
* after wrong connection message uncheck auto-connect checkbox in connection dialog and close xmage;
* remove your record from hosts file.

What the hell? I did all that and when I started xmage again and it went right to downloads, not the "launch client" page

If run your client with temporary hosts fix then your launcher must shows in logs:

Reading config from http://xmage.de/xmage/config.json
Error reading config from http://xmage.de/xmage/config.json
Possible causes: Site is offline or internet connection is unavailable.

In launcher windows:

Ohh, by the way -- you can just disable internet and run xmage. It's will help with connection dialog too. Don't edit etc host file (if you do then just delete that line).

This page doesn't come up for me. Thats what I'm saying. I click on XMageLauncher-0.3.8.jar and it downloads files instead of doing what it usually does, which is in your screenshot

Did you install java on your system? If not then install it (from app store or from https://www.java.com/).

If you have java then you must create "shell script" file to run xmage with command (file name example: "run-xmage.sh"):
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -jar XMageLauncher-0.3.8.jar
Create that file in same folder with XMageLauncher-0.3.8.jar
