Anyone who knows the solution for this?

Make sure your java is up to date. How are you trying to start it and which version are you using?

Just updated java to the most recent version, still it won't start. I'm trying to start it from: Rise Of Flight\PWCGCampaign\PWCGRoF.exe

I am using the PWCG 3.3.2 version.

As PWCG doesn't actually install anything I'd be tempted to delete the folder and try again. You could also install v16 as they create differently named folders...

Have you edited any of the files within PWCG? And are you sure it's installed in the correct directory, i.e your main ROF one.

Okay I will delete it and try again. What do you mean by v16, like the ROF campaign?

 

I did edit something but it wasn't in the PWCG folder, it was in the data folder.

Well I would try a fresh reinstall of your chosen version but don't edit anything. See if that works, then try your edit again and see what happens.

The text files within PWCG are very touchy. One comma or colon out of place and you'll get what you describe, click icon, then nothing.

The most recent version is 3.3.2. it was made as a combined version with IL2 and as such creates a lot of data that a WW1 mission won't use.

V16.3.1 was the last stable version made specifically for ROF and while lacking some of the polish of 3.3.2, moves a lot faster and has fewer bugs.

You can install both as they create differently named folders that won't conflict with eachother.

Now did you mean the data folder in your ROF folder, or the data folder inside PWCGCampaign?

Complicated isn't it!?

I reinstalled the 3.3.2 version, but it still won't start.

 

I can't find the link of the 16.3.1 version (still kinda new to the game and forums)

 

I meant the data folder in the ROF folder.

I meant the data folder in the ROF folder.

I recommend ditching 3.3.2 and installing 16.3.1. as it's more complete/bug free and you can take advantage of all of these wonderful skins made by Gooseh and others.

 

I will post a link to 16.3.1 later today.

 

Once I do d/l and do this:

1. Delete 3.3.2

2. Install 16.3.1 to your root RoF directory. I'll give you more detail when I post the link

3. If you have issues hen post a screenshot of your file structure so we can see what's going on here

 

Stay tuned...

Here is the file link = https://mega.nz/file...DkhQMlp09MUa6pQ

 

 

Make sure you install the "RoFCampaign" folder to the RoF root directory.  Win10 looks typically like this:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\1C-777\Rise of Flight

 

...then go into the "RoFCampaign" folder and find the PWCG.exe to launch the application.

 

 

So try this and report back.

OK so please post a screen of you root directory/ so we can see your file set-up.

 

Quick question - Do you have Java installed?

Yes I do have Java, I have the most recent version.

 

 

In the RoFCampaign folder is then the PWCG.exe application, that won't start.

OK, you have Java and your pathing is correct so 2 things ruled out.

 

Now, go into the RoF Campaign folder and find this file = PWCGErrorLog.txt (or close to that)

Then:

- Delete ALL of its content

- Run the PWCG.exe application again

- Then post the content of the error file here

That error log looks fine.

 

OK, what happens exactly when you click on the PWCG.exe app.?

- Nothing?

- White screen then nothing?

- Other?

 

Still think it's a Java issue. Are you sure you downloaded the version that matches your PC; either 32 bit or 64 bit?

Nothing happnes, when I click on it.

 

My pc is a 64-bit, but I can't find it for Java. I searched on the Java panel but didn't find anything.

Do you know where else I can look?

OK, please try the 64 bit d/l on this page:

Should be a Java icon on your control panel. If it's not there then something is wrong.
