Issues with MegaMek on OSX 10.10.3
#1
I've got Java 8 and OS X 10.10.3. I'm trying to run MegaMek. Any time I try to start it up, it launches in the dock for a few seconds and then disappears. I assume it must be crashing.

I'm using 0.41.4, which I wonder if that might be the main problem.

Any insights that anyone could give to try and get it running?

Are there any errors in the megameklog.txt found in the logs directory? I'd look there first.

More importantly, did you use the Java 8 JRE or the Java 8 JDK? The JRE for OSX isn't really a JRE the same way it is in Windows. It's setup as the Java browser plugin. Instead install the Oracle JDK 8.

Otherwise, you'd probably have to give me a remote desktop access so I can do some debugging, as I don't have access to a 10.10.x machine.

The Oracle fix works btw if any other OS X users find their way here. Thank you Ralgith.

No problem. In theory even the crippled JRE being offered by default should work, but it doesn't always get detected. Hence my suggestion of trying the JDK.

On the upside, the place I work now is using all Apple machines for our desktops/laptops, so I have access to test things.
