Unable to Open/Import module on MAC

Postby stricklandmw » June 29th, 2019, 8:50 pm

After recent Max OS upgrade I am not able Open or Import a module after launching VASSAL. Just seeing a gray window with the 'To start playing ....' message.

Here's snippet from the logs....

So after launching VASSAL, when you go to File -> Open module....what happens? Nothing? And no error messages generated in the log when you attempt that?

That's correct. Nothing happens. No error messages in the log. The screenshot that I attached to this shows the log after I clicked "Open Module." Nothing in the log changed from before I clicked "Open Module."

I am able to click New Module with window coming up. Issue appears to be related to Open/Import. No errors are reported in the log - window simply doesn't open.

FYI: I updated to macOS Catalina Beta 2, and now Vassal just crashes on opening.

I'm still on OS X 10.14 and Java 8, so I can't offer any directly relevant personal experience, but there is a thread about difficulties with Java 9: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10714

Obviously that doesn't address the initial problem, which was occurring while you had Java 8 running.
