locked out of vassal

Everytime I try to log on to vassal I get the following error message:

An untrapped error has occurred
IndexOutOfBoundsException
Index : 0, Size : 0

I have emailed support and no response, so hoping someone in the forums could help.
I have a Mac running Mac OSX version 10.5.5
with Java 1.4 release 7 package which is supposed to update to
Java 1.4.2_18

Everything worked fine a week ago.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Thus spake “Stevens”:

Which version of VASSAL are you using?

Vassal 3.0.app

This is the latest version. Thanks for asking>

Thus spake “Stevens”:

Your version of Java is too old. Any version of VASSAL from 3.0 onwards
requires at least Java 1.5.

I appreciate your answer, however, it might not be relevant to my question.

I am running Apple Leopard OSX 10.5.5

I think Java 1.5 is written for use with Microsoft Wiindows on a PC

So no answer yet. Thanks!

Thus spake “Stevens”:

The tables at the bottom of this page list which versions of Java have
been released for which versions of MacOS X.

developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2110.html

Leopard has Java 5 (a.k.a Java 1.5) installed by default. If you’re running
OS 1.5.5, then you have Java 1.5. Apparently you also have Java 1.4, and if
that’s set as your default JVM, then it could be the problem. I don’t know
how to change that on MacOS, so perhaps another Mac users here could help
you with that.

Um, no. Java is written to be used across any operating system. That
is one of the main reasons it was invented. And also a key reason why
Vassal is implemented in Java.

I’m pretty sure that the default Java under Leopard is the 1.5 release.

This can be controlled by using the Java Preferences editor. This
should be located on your machine in

Applications:Utilities:Java:Java Preferences

Make sure that J2SE 5.0 is the top entry in the list for “Java
application versions”.

If you are using the Mac Application bundled version of Vassal, then
it should take care of this all by itself, since it (should) specify
the minimum Java version. That is by far the easiest way to launch
Vassal on the Mac.

Dear Guys, I appreciate the effort, but I have checked everything as you suggested with no change. I still get the same error message.

Is it possible that some other program that my wife or daughter loaded has blocked the Java server access is some way. I am lost at this point to know how to pursue this.

The program worked fine up until Sunday a week back and then kaput with this untrapped error message.
If I just go to check the server access on the main entry screen, I get the same message.

Thus spake “Stevens”:

Try 3.1.0-beta3:

Does the problem still occur with it?

Loading Vassal 3.1 made no change in my problem. I am going to delete all files and try again.
Thanks!

Thus spake “Stevens”:

If this problem occurs for you again, we need the error log it produces
in order to troubleshoot it. If you’re presented with a bug dialog when
the problem occurs, please use it to submit a bug report. Otherwise, get
the errorLog from your config directory (I’m not sure where that is on
a Mac) and post it here.

Regardless, you should now try 3.1.0-beta4 instead, which was released
today:

I hope someone can make some sense out of this? Thanks!
I uploaded the 2.8 version hoping it would work when the 3.0 version would not. So simply uploading to a newer version has not solved any problem.

Thus spake “Stevens”:

Could you give us an error log from 3.1.0-beta4? It makes much more sense
to troubleshoot against a version which is current.

I couldn’t understand the process of loading 3.1. A module library screen would pop up and ask me to load a module using the file? Sorry I’m not understanding this.

Anyway, I reloaded version 3.0 and here is the error log file for that:

I’m sorry I’m not better at this stuff, but I appreciate your helping me out.

Stevens, this screen? (see attached image)

That’s the new Vassal interface/module launcher that will come up first on 3.1, replacing the old open/edit module dialog. Your Module Library window will be empty, but you just select ‘Open Module’ from the menu and point it at a vassal module, like you’re used to, and from then on it will show up on the list like you can see in mine, and you just double-click to start it.

Thus spake “Stevens”:

In 3.1.0-beta4, go to the File menu and select “Open Module”. Then choose
the module file using the file dialog you’re shown. That should be all you
need to do to load the module.

I must say that is a nice screen image. However, the only thing that pops up on my desktop is a Module library screen. I’ll show you:

Look at attachment.

The real problem is that the server will not connect. I am wondering if some port is closed or kidnapped by another program that keeps this from operating?[/img]

Actually… I think that’s what the window I showed you is supposed to look like before Vassal is aware of any modules (been a while since I’ve seen it like that). So Vassal is actually up and running, and you don’t have to be online at this point (you need it if you want to connect to another user for a game of course, but if you’re just looking at a log or the like, Internet is not needed).

So, go to the top bar, and select ‘Open Module’ from the file menu up there, and I think you’ll be fine as soon as you point it at one of your modules.

Guys? I think some of the confusion here might be the use of the word ‘download’ on that screen, when it’s possible that the user already has a module on hand.

OK. How about changing the text on that window to:

To start playing
Open a module using the File menu.

If you don’t have any modules yet, you will need to download one.
Many modules can be found at vassalengine.org

I don’t think you quite understand my problem. There is no FILE MENU. The only thing I have on my desktop is this image with the yellow, red and green buttons on top. I can’t access anything from this screen.
