Hey guys! We're developing Eclipse Tactics together with Gecimen. I'm doing the coding. I've seen some of you had issues starting the application due to a possible problem in auto-download Javascript function.

I'm currently working on this, but for now the clean workaround is to download the latest Java Runtime Environment at www.java.com

If you have an older java jre then 1.7, it will not launch.  I, for example, have 1.6.something so it didn't launch.  Unfortunitly i need this specific version for work so I can't test.  I'll give it a go when I get home.

I tested it on Mac OS X 10.7.4, the game launched, it downloaded some stuff, and then I have the following error :

"Window translucency is not supported in your system. Exiting." (and I just installed the latest java)

 Guys do you have java 7 installed? I dont know if there's an official script avaiable to check java 7.

Played the tutorial mission, and i dont think i like the blend of pixel-art and digital painting going on and theres a ton of thing that i cant wrap my head around, like the cristals and insta-kill puddles on the ground.

The races look really similiar to starcraft ones.

 

But it IS still in early alpha, so keep up the good work!

Still the same error for me :(

Ok guys it's fixed now. Please test it :)


user

Yup, same as below too. I would LOVE to test it tho.

I think the roll-over function embedded in the launch button causes that. I'll revert that in a couple of hours.

Btw several people somehow managed to run the game...

Same goes for me, but with ID 70437 and the error message in funky german.

AutoDL?BundleId=69485 on java.sun.com is not a Java installer.
Please contact the owner of the referring page to correct the problem.

If I press the launch button this pops up immediately, so I can not even use the bug report function! :p
