Here a little pet project Ive made today,

Since Sunsword and Groboclown are working on a propper new Launcher for Java4K, I made a little brother.

Launcher4k  (under 4 kb)

The launcher will load the entries from 2012 and 2013. It will not save any files locally. Its all working in memory.
Wait a bit for it to load the list, then just click on an entry.

NOT ALL Games work. Especially if there is not just a single class. Sorry.
This early version is very shaky still.
Try my "Griefer" app as reference first, to see if it loads correcly.

On Windows, a doubleclick should suffice to start the app.

In any other case, use:

java -jar J4KLauncher.jar

Then you will also see possible Exceptions thrown.
Since I load pretty rawly the the info (html) from the Java4K website, it might not work
when the website is updated in the future. Wink
You might have to close and restart the Launcher List, as some games that fail to load might make the Launcher hang itself.
Also if games seem too slow: restart the complete Launcher after playing a few games.

Have fun trying it out.
(Its not ment to replace the propper Launcher, just a reply I made for a previous discussion  Roll Eyes )

I got the game list window up, but couldn't run anything :\ double-click to play i assume? Nothing happened.

Btw, I made a JSON service so you don't have to parse html (which could change):

Check out the 4K competition @
Check out GAMADU (my own site) @

Its still buggy. It loads on a SINGLE click.
Try "Griefer" as an example, I know it works with the launcher, and check the stacktrace (starting the launcher from a terminal).

I will have a look at the JSON service. Thanks for providing that interface.

(put up a new version, it might solve some problems, more updates later)
