Stencyl 3.4.0 is now out. Get it now!

Pencyl, any ideas on why it does not work?

Mine is only 1.61KB and it worked for me ( I used the one from nightly build). It resides in document folder and when I double clicked on it, it bring up pencyl.

Can you make sure you do not have another pencyl process running in the background? Or perhaps close all application and log out and upon login just try to execute pencyl.

Also, can you just attach the pencyl file here or pm the file to me and let me swap it in to see if it works.

tried the restart and loan a few times.

No Pencyl or Stencyl process running.

I will upload the file.

I clicked on the jar file and got it save as index.php. Can anyone let me know how I can retrieve it properly?

Try downloading it again and in the drop down box (assuming you are a windows user) select all files or something similar and type the file extension (.Jar). Or try and rename the file which you downloaded.

I renamed it and it worked. Thanks for keeping up with me on this.

Anyways, swapped in your pency.jar file and it worked for me (able to open pencyl). Now I went in to do more debugging myself.

I noted that in order or pencyl to work, we can remove any files and folders except for ext-tools.

So now I've only one file (pnecyl.jar) and only the ext-tools folder under my stencylworks folder and I can still open pencyl.

My next question: How may files and folders are there under ext-tools for you? Can you name them.

a few files and folders:

5 folders

editors
flex
licenses
players
pvr

perhaps the most important being editors,as this looks like it has the real pencyl.jar file as this is 3.2mb in size. I have tried loading this but this too does not load.

the other files present are SciTE and a folder called smultron.app (no idea what it is but i suspect it relates to Mac services as one of the folders is called MacOS.

Are you loading this on the Mac or PC?

Mine is PC WinXP.

OK. I reduced it further so that I only have pencyl and 2 folders under ext-tools (which are editors and Licenses) such that I can still double-click on pencyl and open it.

I am attaching StencylWorks zip here. Just unpack to either Program files and local document folder and see if it works. Hopefully it will and we can then nail down the cause.

Try running Pencyl through the command line to see if any error messages pop up. Go to Start > Run, and type in "cmd" and hit Enter. Then type the following:

cd C:\whatever\your\path\to\StencylWorks\is
java -jar pencyl.jar

I got it running on my winxp using your instructions. Pencyl opened up properly. Let's see what Ramorez117 has to say. Dr Reddy can chime in if you see this post. Thanks Joe.

tried it, it still didnt work  :-[. I'm going to reinstall Java as it could possibly be my java installation. Although i suspect if i can actually run other java applications including the editor pencyl was based on makes me think my java installation isnt to blame..
