Hang at "Checking Media" Reply to this Post

First post in a long time but I'm ready to plunge into the beta. However, after a successful install I consistently just can't get past "Checking Media" on the application. It just searches and searches, etc. Any tips?

Are you using the Windows installer? If so, go to the directory in which you had it installed (the default is C:Program Files\Yohoho\ I believe). From there go into Java\javaws and run the program in that directory called javaws.

If you're not using the Windows installer, but installed Java by hand, there should be an entry in the Programs menu called "Java Web Start", run that.

In that program, select File -> Preferences from the menu. From there click on the "Advanced" tab and click the "Show Java Console" checkbox. That will cause a log to be displayed while you are running the game that you can copy and paste and email to us at bugs@puzzlepirates.com so that we can try to diagnose the problem.

Thanks in advance for your help. Hopefully we'll be able to get things shipe shape.

I've had this problem as well, and submitted a bug about it. It's been consistent for the last two weeks or so. However, if ye wait about 20 minutes, it will actually finish "Checking media" and let ye log in, so be patient and go do somethin' else for a while while it starts up. And do make sure to submit a bug with the log, as suggested.
