First Time Starting Game

Postby billotronic » 11. Jan 2013, 02:41

Im not sure if I'm completley missing something or stupid (or both) but for the life of me I cannot get this game to start. I download the install, extract, tried running the executable to no result, tried the jnlp to no result, found somewhere randomly that the game launched from the browser?

Where is the getting started guide? Where is a simple wiki? How the hell do I get started?

Thanks.

Hello and welcome to Forgotten Elements!
I am sorry that you have problems running the game.
Please let me know what Computer you are using. Which OS? What graphic card?
When you downloaded the executable you should be able to install the game without any problems.
Please keep me informed,

Firefox v18

java version "1.7.0_09"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.3.3) (7u9-2.3.3-0ubuntu1~12.10.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.2-b09, mixed mode

When I try running it from the command line I get this:

gdlinux@gdlinux:/opt/ForgottenElements$ ./forgottenelements

Uhh... strange annoying things... :(
I really don't know why this error happens. It has to do with the Java Native Interface and so maybe the used distribution is not compatible.
By the way... gets a log saved in your install folder?

Yes, I remember seeing one in the folder. I will post that when I get home from work.

Also, is there any sort of java log that would show any more info about these errors?

I run a 64bit os, could that be the issue?

Let me ask as silly question, what is the preferred way of launching this game? Is it through the website? If so I could turn on debugging in Firefox and see if that shows anything useful?

I don't know much about java, but is there maybe a dependency I might be missing that I could check for?

Is your Java updated? Preferred method is download, not web. Web is slower...

It's current for my distro, but may not be the actual current version. I will look into that and post the results.

I'm also getting this issue. A friend of mine helped me a little bit get through a couple of errors that I was having before that was because of my machine, but according to him this next error has to do with the game and not my system.

The first error when trying to star the game was this:
[root@localhost Forgotten Elements]# ./forgottenelements
libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work
Aborted (core dumped)

My friend fixed the above error, but now it's getting this:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: exception occurred in JNI_OnLoad
at java.lang.Void.<unknown>(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Void.<unknown>(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Void.<unknown>(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Void.<unknown>(Unknown Source)

I'm running Fedora 18 64 bit
