New user here! I recently downloaded jMonkeyEngine on a linux machine where it worked fine, and shortly after switched over to a Macbook running El Capitan. After downloading the installer, opening it would just result in a crash (the icon would bounce in the dock for a few seconds and then disappear). I tried all the older versions as well with the same outcome.
I decided to go poking around in the package contents of the .app file and found the bundle.jar file. I honestly didn’t think it would do anything, but I double clicked it, and the installer was up and running! I now have the SDK installed and it seems to be functioning properly so far, as far as I can tell!
I just wanted to post this here in case anyone else runs into this issue! If you happen to find yourself in this less than ideal situation, try the following:
- Right click the unzipped jMonkeyEngine SDK Installer
- Click “Show package contents”
- Navigate to “Resources/jMonkeyEngine SDK Installer”
- Double click the bundle.jar file
I hope someone finds this helpful!
