I was wondering if there was any chance of the Java versioning issue to be fixed. The idea that it takes a specific version, and only that version, to be installed makes it very difficult for me.

I have a variety of software that I work with that uses different versions of Java, 1.5, 1.4. 6.0. This software is the only one that has a problem with other versions being installed, and I don't want to find out that I have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling the versions of Java each patch of DJ.

A DJ patch is currently being worked on and tested, which should eliminate
the Java-version hangups.

This is great to hear. I may look at upgrading to the full version once that is out.

Also, what would be the procedure of upgrading to 2.0 if I purchase the current version soon, and 2.0 comes out shortly after?

DJ2 is probably too far off still to consider holding off purchasing DJ1.

Mindy has stated that there will be an upgrade price from DJ1 to DJ2, and that artpacks for DJ1 will still work for DJ2 (although they might need to be
re-downloaded and re-installed).

Sweet....So there will be some price discount if you are just upgrading to DJ2 from DJ1? Also, will re-downloading and re-installing the art packs cause any to be lost? Of course, since you have purchased them already, is there a way to make sure you don't have any issues with redownloading them?

Upgrade price = discounted price compared to a new purchase.

The online store tracks who bought what artpack (even now with DJ 1). In
the event of a computer disaster, if you don't have backups (which you really
SHOULD), you are allowed to re-download the artpacks you've paid for.

So exactly how far off is the release of DJ 2.0? Any estimation would be appreciated... I am eager to get my hands on the added functionality.

We have a design, but the actual development takes place after the new patch comes out. So it will be a while
Sorry to be so vague, but from experience I know to not give estimates when we haven't even started building yet

So, I won't be able to use DJ until *after* the patch comes out (since I need to have the most current version of Java installed)?

Is that, like, soon - only I have some deadlines to meet and I was told DJ was the best thing to use. This is a really disappointing start because it's not usable in the form I've purchased and I was expecting great things from it based on what I've seen and heard...

I also hope the patch is released soon ... and it should be from the last news I heard.
Unfortunately we were not able to create a solution for the Java bug on shorter notice, but we do understand and know it has created unworkable situations for some people. It would also have been better if SUN had never introduced the bug into Java, but that still doesn't change the current situation.

Thank you

Does DJ clash with other mapping programs as far as you are aware - especially if I don't have them running at the same time? There was one other that was recommended - I chose DJ instead, but the other might do as an interim until the problem is fixed.

My only other option is to map in Word, or to hand draw and then use a scanner - both are slow, tedious and don't produce the quality result I'm looking for.

I'm guessing you don't have a timeline for the patch, but if you have any other suggestions for an alternative that would serve in the meantime, it would be appreciated.

Perhaps you could experiment with DungeonForge/Map X, which is free and
uses PNG art just like DJ does.

http://www.dungeonmapping.com/df/public_html/

Maybe it could tide you over until the patch arrives.

AFAIK, DJ doesn't clash with other mapping programs, unless they require a
newer version of Java be installed.

Thank you for that.

I'll give it a go... and look forward to hearing when the patch is ready... and the 2.0 upgrade :-)

Of course. The compatibility with CC3 has nothing to do with Java, but with the fact that CC3 now supports png-images. That means you can use all user-art on here in CC3 too.

DJ2 won't be using Java, huh? What will it use instead? Are we losing Mac-
compatability?

No you wont loose Mac-compatibility (I read this somewhere in the forums)
Dont worry they dont want to loose their Mac client just because of a new "scipt language"
