Stencyl 3.4.0 is now out. Get it now!

Pencyl, any ideas on why it does not work?

Thanks for getting my attention, Rob.

That is an interesting error. Ramorez, can you show me a screenshot of what you get when you type the following:

java -version

Also, have you tried reinstalling the newest version of StencylWorks and updating it to 1.3.2?

Hi Rob,

I'm up to date with Stencyl (I have clean installed 3 or so times). As for java version when i type java -version in the cmd window, the following pops up: -

Java version 1.7.0_01
Java SE runtime environment build 1.7.0_01-b08
Java hotspot client vm build 21.1-b02, mixed mode sharing

Any other questions, please fire away.

ps I have been receiving this error prior to updating my version of java.

R.

I'm at a loss here. I've never before seen the error you're getting here:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: 682464 incompatible with Text-specific LCD contrast key

I goggled this:

Can you try something to this extent:

Turning the "smooth edges of screen fonts" option off in the Vista Performance Options->Visual Effects made the problem go away

sorry for late answer, yes the issue is the ClearType Font settings in windows, some drivers have issues with it. disabling it will help!

This is in french:

Possible useful info

pencyl.jar --- it's working on my pc
i'm using vista home SP2 and i have it in other drive not C:\
java v6 update 29 build 1.6.0_29-b11(old) ----- run fine
and with v6 update 30 build 1.6.0_30-b12(updated version) ----- run fine

i also tested it booting my pc in safe mode with the updated version and run fine too.

i would say to you to try to run it in safe mode to eliminate any possible conflict in process, application etc. if it work then some app or process its causing it then you have to figure out which one  :-\

The only idea I have left is for you to assign another editor like photoshop or paint and use that one instead. You can set your default editor somewhere in File->Prefereces. I'll keep track of your log and see if anyone else post similar issue and we can revisit.

Rob,

well, this is interesting... so i've been using the editor which pencyl is based on for a while, but i have been loading this independently of stencyl. I tried your suggestion and the editor does not work (when the editor is set within the preferences in Stencyl)!

I have attached the a screen shot of the log. An error is created when i click the edit image button (which would normally load pencyl). I have circled the interesting bit in red. Now it says that its not a valid Win32 application, i am wondering if this is because it thinks its an .exe file and not a .jar file....

I think this is because you have Java 7 installed. You should uninstall it and get the latest version of 6.

Thanks Cole.

I understand you did use Java 6 before and have other problems. Can you try to get Java 6 and repost error log with that? Sorry for the runaround.
