Re: Another Linux starting issue

Ok, it's definitely because of the JavaFX version. Quite strange for it to still be reported as early access despite being already way above version 8.0.48...

I'll release a minor release of Negatron for this issue tonight.

Edit: Negatron 0.99.6 available with the related fix.

Re: Another Linux starting issue

Can you download the Java exec from here and run it with the below command?

Code: Select all

java -jar JavaFXStringVersion.jar
It should open a window with a message giving 3 different version strings. Please, report them here afterwards.

Re: Another Linux starting issue

I don't have the time to do it now but, over the weekend, I'll draft a quick Java exec to see exactly what are the JDK and JavaFX versions that Java applications can see on your machine. If 1.8.202-ea is indeed the only version string that Java applications can retrieve. I'll then patch Negatron so ...

Re: Another Linux starting issue

It looks like Negatron is crashing when parsing the JavaFX version, not the JDK version. Can you check and see which JavaFX versions are installed on your system? Edit: oops, I didn't read the last lines of your last post. Yes, it's probably because of your JavaFX version. Can you try to see if ther...

Re: Another Linux starting issue

try with this command:

Code: Select all

$JAVA -version
I bet it'll return something else entirely.

Re: Another Linux starting issue

This is because you launch Negatron with an old and early access version of Java. Negatron.sh always launches Negatron with the default configured Java by using the environment variable $JAVA. And here Negatron is getting this Java version: 202-ea. Here "ea" stands for early version and this is prob...

Re: java-related trouble getting Negatron started

I had to fix other things more urgently. That's why that didn't make it to the recent release.

It's obviously still scheduled for the next one. I'll try to make it by the end of September.

Re: Negatron doesn't start anymore

Argh, this is because 4 MAME options have been removed in v0.212 and Negatron is still expecting them in mame.ini... I'll do something more robust for the next version of Negatron to avoid encountering this kind of situation in the future. The next version is planned for Sunday 18 August. Bear with ...

Re: Negatron not start in Windows 10

Argh! Thanks for reporting this. I will hardcode the locale in Negatron then. The fix will be shipped with the next release.

Re: Negatron not start in Windows 10

Firs of all, you should add those command line options "-Xms512m -Xmx2g". By default, the JVM doesn't allow enough memory to applications and Negatron can thus suffer expansive slowdowns when loading the MAME database into memory the first time you launch it, hence the 2 GB switch. Besides this init...
