Im trying to follow this tutorial to edit two handed weapons to 2d6 damage : https://forums.beamd...w-to-make-items

 

Except that it tells me to download near infinity from this page : http://www.shsforums...8-nearinfinity/

 

Which does not seem to include any download links for near infinity at all...the OP says he attached the latest version to the post but i see no attachments at all...

 

So I tried downloading near infinity from here : https://github.com/F...finity/releases

 

I downloaded the .jar, put it in my BG 1 : EE folder, but when I try to run it, the .jar freaks out and says that it could not find the main class.

 

This is very confusing, where do i go to download the compiled, latest version of near infinity?

The opening topic in that SHS thread is indeed somewhat confusing. To put it short, get the latest stable version here, as could be seen in this post ;)

That is the same .jar file i downloaded, and it will not run. It complains that it cannot find the main class.

Have you installed Java? NI needs it to run. OP in that SHS thread has a link to download it. Putting NI to game folder, by the way, is not necessary :)

 

If you have Java installed and NI still don't work for you, just ask in that thread - Argent is pretty active and will have the best knowledge of NI and how to make it run.

Make sure you have installed a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) of version 8 or higher. If it has been installed correctly you should be able to start NI simply by double-clicking on NearInfinity.jar (as you would do when starting a regular executable). You don't have to unpack the .jar file.

I have java 9.04 installed and i can run other java files fine. This is the error btw (See attached).

I have heard of this issue only in conjunction with running an older Java version than the tool has been compiled with. The file provided by the links above is compiled with Java 8, so it should run fine with Java 9 or later.

It could be a Java configuration issue on your system, or maybe a security tool is interfering with execution. Are you able to run the file from the command prompt with the following command?
java -jar NearInfinity.jar

Edit: Could you also run the following command in the command prompt?
java -version
It should return version 1.9 or higher in your case.

And if you want to run it as a .bat, you want to put a pause in that so to actually see the return.. aka just:
java -version
pause

Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

Did you place the .jar file into the folder ?

I would also go with Jarno's suggestion first.

Does NearInfinity.jar actually exist in C:\Users\Question? You have to specify the full path to the file if it's located in another folder. A simple drag&drop of the file from the file manager to the command prompt will save you some work.

That sounds better. You can find the chitin.key in the installation directory of the game you want to open.

Okay, i can open the program that way but for some reason i still cannot run the .jar directly. Shouldnt running the .jar give me the popup to select the chitin key as well?
