Hi, I've not been able to open the last two beta versions. First error I get is related to java not being allowed to open on first run, I can get past this by opening java in the terminal and giving the os permission, but then I get the error in the attached log.

The last thing checked before the error is the byrobingames extension. I don't know if it's failing on that extension, or on something else afterwards.

The Java problem is really unfortunate. It should meet Apple's requirements and run fine now, but I hit the same issue too, so I was hoping that it was only a problem on my computer. I saw another person post a similar story (failed on dev machine only) on the Apple developer forums. I'll take a closer look now.


About the later error, it looks like it's failing to parse information about connected iOS devices. Can you try running the following two commands in a terminal and post the output of each?

Re: the Java problem, see the last post in #1690: Haxelib error.

(Some more pertinent info in this thread)


Alright, thanks. I see where the null is coming in now. I'll fix Stencyl to account for that once I'm home in a few hours.

Though based on the workaround you found in your forum post, it seems like that may not have had anything to do with it. I guess we need to figure out how to make this work smoothly with devices connected via Wi-Fi.

I've fixed the error related to iOS devices that stops Stencyl from loading in private build 10571 (slated for public release 4.0.3).

I do not know why your device appears as "null" though. I tried connecting mine via wifi, and everything appeared as normal. The only thing I could do to make mine show up as "null" was to revoke trust of my computer, and have it physically connected via cable.

Whatever this is, I'm guessing something must have changed on your end before early June, because the code that was causing problems here hasn't been changed in Stencyl in about a year and a half. It seems to be either a device state problem (in my case, again, revoking trust did it, but your case seems different), or some other bug in Apple's instruments program. Since we can't do anything about that, this issue is about as resolved as it's going to get.
