Another half-day, another patch. I try to rush these out if someone’s play is being impacted by the game. The problem solved in 3.07 has a workaround, but it’s caused a lot of confusion so here it is.
(replacing with patch 3.08)
- Error where Java cannot kind find “RotP.jar” when starting
This bug was caused by me renaming the jar file for this patch to Remnants.jar (this alpha) from RotP.jar (last year’s alpha). There also happens to be nice code within the game to detect low memory allocation by Windows and restart the game with an appropriate amount of memory. Unfortunately, it was still trying to restart the game as RotP. jar… DOH!
So if you have a Windows PC and it is configured to not give Java enough memory, you would see this behavior. The “solution” was to either rename the jar to RotP.jar, to configure Windows to give Java more memory, or to run the game from the command line with more memory.
With this patch, none of those solutions are necessary anymore.
I am out of town this weekend and on the road all day Thursday & Sunday, but I will try to be a responsive as possible to any other bugs reported.
