 Post subject: Why does my game keep quiting.
PostPosted: Wed May 27, 2009 5:31 am 
Hi, Im new to CW. Its really fun but Im having an annoying problem with beta 27. For some reason it always closes by itself. The actual game opens but a minute afterwards it closes. Right now Im playing beta 24 because thats the most recent one that wont close on me. What is going on. [P.S. I have a Mac computer with up to date Java script]

You need Java, not Javascript. I don't know much about macs though, apparently there's something about them and Java not working well together.

Could you launch the jar file from the command line? This would print debug information and possible exception to the console.
With that information I'm sure we can get you to play the latest version :wink:

the command is
Code:
java -jar jarname.jar
when in the same folder as the jar file.

In that case... forget about the command line. I don't think there is any other way to describe the problem. You open it and it closes immediately. Where did you get the copy of Beta27 from... was it from the Information Page or somewhere else?

I got the beta from your site. I even tried redownloading it but that was no good. I didnt download it from somewhere else. What happened.

argh macs don't have printscreen or console?

It might be called something else, like "terminal"
assuming the .bat file won't open on a mac

Kiwi is right it's called the terminal :P

You will find it under Applications->Utilities. Fire it up and then try to get to the folder of the jar file using cd. More info @ http://guides.macrumors.com/Terminal and http://macapper.com/2007/03/08/the-term ... roduction/
You'll have to do some reading/testing...
A log file would be easier but doesn't exist so this is the only way.

Ok well Ive tried using terminal but what ever I type it either says "No file or directory" or "command not found". I am so confused :?: On top of that my computer has been very screwed up for a while. Its been doing random things so its really hard to do anything on it. Personally I hate computers. There sooooooo complicated.

All right I have a question. I have this thing called parallels. Its a thing that allows me to use other operating systems like windows on my mac. Do you think that if I downloaded the game on parallels that it would work.

All right scratch the parallels idea. I tried it but the game didn't even come up [Yes I did install java but it didn't work]. I'm outta ideas. I guess unless someone can figure it out I'll be playing beta 24 [or lower]. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

All right I have goodnews and bad news. After some time of playing with terminal I figured it all out. The bad news is that even after I opened the game through terminal it still didn't work. I'm not sure what to do. :cry: :cry: :cry:

YIPPE YIPPE HURRA HURRA. IM SO HAPPY. I figured out the problem. It had to do with the sounds.When I got rid of the folder the game worke d fine. The only differrence was there was no sound. Oh well you can't have everything. Personally I'm happy as long as it works. I guess there was something screwy about the sound file. Oh well all I can say is HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Good to hear it started working for you. Now if someone would bother telling Sven... I think he had the same problem with Crap Wars on his Mac.
