Stencyl 3.4.0 is now out. Get it now!

Pencyl, any ideas on why it does not work?

mmm ok i clearly hadnt been thinking straight the other day. I am wondering if this is the issue, as i dont recall installing J7 recently, but i do recall downloading J6 Update 30?! there is perhaps a conflict between the two.

I will uninstall them tomorrow and revert back, when J6 has been installed.

I think stencyl requires java 6 and not java 7.

To check your version on your computer:

YIPEEEEEEEEE
So I uninstalled Java 7 and Java SE7 and Java 6 xx and reinstalled Java 6 update 30. I have just tried pencyl and can confirm that it is now loading! :-)

Thank you everyone for your help.

Look out for our games soon! Stencyl Pro here we come!  8)

Ran into the same issue today. I downloaded the new java sdk last night to work on some java files it was version 7. Today Pencyl wouldnt open, after reading the forum i uninstalled all the java files and now pencyl loads and runs fine, but now I dont have a java sdk to build java files from.

You do not have to use pencyl. If you have other editing tools, just invoke sw, go to File->preferences->Editors->Image editor and pick something else like Photoshop if you have one.
