When i try to open stencyl, it says:
Ouch this should not have happened! Please report this error on the forum
I was able to open it before but it doesnt open now and i am not sure why.

How did you open Stencyl? Are you opening the Stencyl.app package, or are you running a shell script or invoking java directly? Did you move some files around in the Stencyl folder? Reinstalling may fix the issue.

Here's the error I saw at the top of ryanbaehj04's log file. Are you sure you got the same error?

Try running sw.jar instead of Stencyl.app and see if that helps. Open the Stencyl folder in a terminal and run this.

Code: [Select]
java -jar sw.jar
