Pow - How to ... (download, install, launch, ...)


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I downloaded the client from your site out of curiosity.

- The download of the *.jar file worked fine for me.
- When unpacking the *.jar file, using 7zip, I get the message that some *.class files should be replaced => I hit replace all (total count of errors: 179
- After extracting the folder, I can't launch any client...

Probably, I am the problem here, as i never used any other client, but the original and RL.

 

I would appreciate a little how-to setup. 🙂

 

 

All the best!

Hi mate, you need to run the .jar with Java rather than unpackaging it.

 

If you install Java 11, and run it with that, you should be good to go.

Hi Dan,

thank you for your quick reply!

Sadly I am not able to find 'Java 11'.
Version 8 with Update 261, seems to be the current version: https://java.com/de/download/

Could you please point me into the correct direction?

 

Thanks in advance and all the best.

 

Edit:
I did some research on how to run *.jar files: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-open-jar-files/
But the client still wont open.

Try Here, as far as I know, this is the officially supported version.

if you’re still unable to open it, I’d ask @const_or @_Rickto weigh in here.

I myself have to open it through the cmd so I wrote a bat file to do it all for me but that shouldn’t be required for public users.
