Unfortunately, I think the rest of the problems are Java-related and cannot be fixed until the new patch comes out. If you do get the issue with the images (presumably with the artpacks) fixed, I'd really be interested....

Ok - this works for Vista Ultimate. Should work for other Vistas as well:

Uninstall Dundjinni
Uninstall ALL Java Runtime Environments, patches, updates, etc.
Get your fresh Java here
Install Java 1.4.2_02
Install Dundjinni 1.04
Install Dundjinni patch 1.06
Download the updated Talismyr Style sheet (optional, but highly recommended) here
Put the Talismyr zip file in the root of C: and unzip it there, approving the overwrite of existing files regardless of date.
Reinstall your art packs.
Install Java 1.5.0.04

DO NOT Install Java 1.6

Having done the above, everything shows up and works well enough.

Nice work, mdono. I moved to Vista awhile ago and have been running Dundjinni on XP in a VMWare VM. Looks like I can ditch my VM now. Before I start down this route, is there any need for beta testers on Vista Ultimate that haven't followed mdono's path?

Thanks

I'll be working on a sample adventure in PDF and DJA formats this week that I will post on or about 01/13. Will provide Vista notes with the adventure, highlighting any issues I encounter (if any) during creation, display and printing.

I have never messed with Java before.
Do I uninstall it from Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs?
Do I have to delete parts of it from anywhere else?

Yep you remove it via Add/Remove programs.

If you allow Java to update itself automatically it appears to install multiple versions of itself. For whatever reason, Dundjinni doesn't run very well when there are multiple versions so you are better off just having 1 version. Look for various files named "J2SE Runtime Environment [Version Number]" and delete then follow the various instructions above (But ensure that when you come to run Dundjinni after installed, you only have 1 version of Java installed).

I sometimes use a java / intranet based database tool called Business Objects and it also has issues with Java versions and clean installs so Dundjinni isn't unique in this regard.

True in many cases. However, DJ runs fine with both 1.4x and 1.5x (as supplied here) installed at the same time. You can probably get by with just 1.4x, but I seem to recall that adventure printing wants 1.5x... it's been a while since I tested with just 1.4x... will confirm in the next few days.

Hey mdono, YOU ROCK!!!! Same goes for everyone else who helped in figuring this thing out!

I followed your instructions and DJ works great on my new computer!!!!

The OS is Vista Home Premium and a third of my older programs don't load or run on it, but at least now Dundjinni works. I'm going to try reloading some of the other failures and see if it helps them to.

Thanks!!

You're welcome

BTW, I have not had time to create a new adventure yet... have been building a new gaming table... 4'x7' made of 2x6's with about a gallon of polyurethane on it... but I may be able work on an adventure Sunday while the final coat dries.

This thread started back in August on getting a patch available "soon."

Any word on the release of 1.07?

When I have news again I will share it right away. I expect something "soon" though (jeez, how vague can you be )
Keep the faith people ...
