Recently I have been seeing alot of people having issues with the client crashing. All of the ones I have helped, seemed to have wurm using 32bit java on a 64bit system. I have had to type this out to around 10-20 people and thought it would be easier to just make one guide I can link them to! So here it is! This guide works for Windows 7, unsure for other OSs! Before proceeding please do not use this guide unless you are SURE you are on a 64bit operating system. How to check for a 64bit operating system: Force wurm to run on 64bit Java, a How To Guide. Finding your java version: Navigate to your C drive then to "Program Files" then to the "Java" folder. See what number is after the underscore on the "jre1.8.0_" Folder. *Note that if you do not have a "Java" or a "jre1.8.0_" folder you need to download Windows Offline Java 64bit from https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp Showing the file extensions for all file types: Click the Start menu. Type "folder options" (without the quotes). A dialog box with the title "Folder Options" will appear. Open that by clicking. Go to the "View" tab. Click to uncheck the box for "Hide extensions for known file types". Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the dialog box. Creating the .bat run file: Next go to your desktop, right click, go to New and select Text Document. Name the text document anything you'd like, then change the .txt to .bat. Note: this should change the icon from the text file to an icon with a gear on it. Right click the file and choose "Edit" Enter the following code, I will provide a screenshot of what the file should look like after. @ECHO OFF "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_---\bin\Javaws.exe" http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient_unstable.jnlp EDIT THE "---" AFTER "jre.1.8.0_" TO THE JAVA'S VERSION THAT WE FOUND IN THE FIRST SET OF INSTRUCTIONS!!! EXAMPLE WITH JAVA VERSION ADDED: Save the file and voila! Double click and the client will pop open! Except now it is using Java 64bit instead of 32bit. NOTE: "@Echo OFF" makes the comand prompt not show up. "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_71\bin\Javaws.exe" is the Java File path for 64bit Java "http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient_unstable.jnlp" Is the direct download to the Wurm Unstable Client. This file tells command prompt to open 64bit Java, and then to launch the linked file from Java.
