ANNOUNCE: MetroidRL v0.72 released
« on: November 16, 2010, 01:42:21 PM »
4 years after the last version. I had kept this on my HD for too long.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2Py0kZN18c

I figured out I’d just load it up and package it… I was tempted to refactor it into using serf and libjcsi (MetroidRL predates them both, it was the first project to use the “Swing Console Box”, which then became libjcsi; it’s also based around the common framework which evolved into serf), but after wasting about 2 hours I knew I was stranding into the wrong direction :)

Released now, still pretty alpha but here goes for all you metroid lovers!

I have also released the source code under GNU GPL v3 at https://code.google.com/p/metroidrl/

  "java" not recognized as a command? Should be. I have it loaded. I figure this out later.

Mac. Castlevania RL works just fine, but MetroidRL crashes, and I can't find the place where it tells me the error message. I'm really confused since, as I said, CVRL works perfectly.

Hmm... are you using the .sh files to run it?? may be you need to delete the .dll file on /lib...

I'm using the .jav file. Any idea why it's different from CVRL though?

Well, CvRL doesn't use an emulated terminal display but is tile based instead (when you run it by doubleclicking the jar file, that's it).

Did you delete libjcurses.dll on the .\lib folder?
Can you chmod the .sh files and run it from there instead of using the jar file? (or just access the terminal and run "java -jar metroidrl.jar"), so that we can see the error message

Anyone else having problems running it on mac?

Did you change directory to the one where the game was decompressed before doing "java -jar metroidrl.jar"?

I'll get in touch with the white leopards and let you know if they have issues too

use 'cd'

For example cd /games/roguelikes/metroidRL

Can you click a file and make it executable in mac? try making "metroidRL.sh" executable and then double clicking it

Any mac user can help?
