There are 4 "Start" files, 2 for Windows, 2 for Linux (and iOS I think)SellSword wrote: ↑Fri Jan 17, 2020 2:46 amMy simple version for Windows was to:
1. Extract files from zipped file
2. Try to remember where I put the files
3. Try clicking on the files until the game started
4. Remember it's called "start" with a .something afterwards
I'm not muddling up my understanding with facts and all that!
Windows: BATch files
Since I don't use Windows: I GUGLed; How to run a batch file in Windows:
Running a batch file from within Windows
A batch file runs like any other executable file by double-clicking the file within Windows. However, because a batch file runs in a command line, it immediately exits when done, so you may only see a black box for a second.
Run a batch file from the Command Prompt
To run a batch file, move to the directory containing the file and type the name of the batch file. For example, if the batch file is named "hope.bat," you can type "hope" to execute the batch file.
Do the same for the Linux versions: How to run a bash script in Linux:
Linux (and iOS)
BTW: All four files have the same line in them:
Code: Select all
java -jar desktop.jar fullscreen
On my system:
Code: Select all
