That might help some - I'll try it.
HS does work without any special packs loaded. And, as far as I know, it works with other individual packs,
just not the all in one. It freezes on the splash. I let it go for more than three minutes last night, and it just
sat there doing nothing.
I tried extracting it straight to the HS folder, as well as copying and pasting...neither worked.
I tried the .bat file, and it tells me that it cannot find the java file to run - someone else had that problem
back on page 21. This is what my screen says:
- windows cannot find javaw. Please make sure you typed it correctly and try again.


I'll try playing with it a bit more. Thanks for the help, and thanks for all the hard work putting HS
together into such a great program. Whether I can get the all in one to work or not, I can still use
basic HS, and just paste icons from the all in one pack as needed. It is a little bit of trouble, but
still makes it usable. :)

That's clearly your issue, you don't have the environment variable set to your Java bin folder, please follow the first answer in this post to solve it.

Goddamnit. I HAD Heroscribe working on my pc. For some reason, it's gone... Simply gone. I installed it again, added the all in one pack, overwrote everything, and once again, it simply hangs at the splash screen.
EVERY TIME I DO THIS!

I followed the FAQ instructions, added the path line, installed the latest Java. Nothing. It ran fine before the all in one pack. But now it won't anymore.

The All-in-One comes with a .bat file for those who have the problem with HS freezing on the splash screen while loading. If you've copied everything from the All-in-One .zip file and paste the contents over everything inside the HeroScribe folder, just double-click the HeroScribe.bat file and HeroScribe should load. It may take a couple minutes, but it shouldn't freeze on the splash screen. I just tested this with fresh files from the links you provided two posts back. It works on my system with the .bat file, (takes about 30 seconds to load) whereas using only the .jar file freezes on the splash screen.

As before, when I run the bat file, windows tells me it can't find javaw.

I've had Java update a couple times and change the folder in which its executable is in. This required me to change the .bat file to the new location. Outside of that possibility, I too am at a loss.

Above is the only thing I can think of right now.

Hey Sjeng, have you tried following the FAQ at this particular point? Let me know if that works with you, it should from what I'm reading.

That's exactly what I did. I reversed the / into \ though, as that's what all the other lines in the "path" line had. Was that wrong?

okay, this is the problem with the bat file:
start C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar HeroScribe.jar
With this line it worked before. But now:

Windows can't find the program "C:\Program" It's ignoring the space between Program and Files -.-
Can I fix that somehow?

Sure, just include the path between quotation marks:
Code: Select all
start "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw" -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar HeroScribe.jar

By the way, if you do include that path as an environment variable you should be able to run javaw.
