Ive been playing the "cracked" version I downloaded and love the game. I dig it enough that it's worth buying and as soon as I get this problem figured out I'll buy it.
I upgraded to win7 x64 and now cannot play. I've installed the x64 java and do not have the x32 on my computer. Everytime I try to play I get the error
"No JVM could be found on your system. Please define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME to point to an installed 32-bit JDK or JRE or download a JRE from www.java.com"
Is this a problem with the cracked loader that buying the game will fix?
Does anyone have any solutions?
You probably won’t find a whole lot of video game developers these days extolling the virtues of piracy, but at least one game creator doesn’t seem to mind it. In fact, he embraces it.
That would be Minecraft mastermind Markus “Notch” Persson, a proud member of the Swedish “Pirate Party,” who told the audience of the GDC Indie Games Summit he does not believe the act of copying a game is inherently wrong as nothing is actually being stolen. If anything, it’s a marketing tool.
“Piracy is not theft,” said Persson during the session. “If you steal a car, the original is lost. If you copy a game, there are simply more of them in the world. There is no such thing as a ‘lost sale.’ Is a bad review a lost sale? What about a missed ship date?”
He suggests that pirates aren’t “inherently evil, but potential customers.”
“Treat game development as a service. Make a game last longer than a week. You can’t pirate an online account.”
Even with some estimates putting piracy for his own title Minecraft at around 70% of those playing, the game has still sold over $1.5M copies, and Notch seems content with that.
His rosy outlook on spreading the love of gaming for free is shared by few others in the industry, and many indie developers have taken huge hits when piracy has cleaved through sales of their titles. Not every game can be a “service” and one-time playthrough titles like World of Goo have suffered 80%+ piracy rates in the past. Even if each downloaded copy isn’t directly a lost sale, it’s still a pretty big hit. Meanwhile, giants like Sony are now hunting down pirates and hackers to the ends of the earth, and piracy continues to be a major concern for the entire industry.
Well, I got the pirated version running and I won't buy the game without my support issues being resolved. People can continue to be holier than Notch and snub me or help me get it running in x64 so I can purchase the game.
Frankly, I don't even have to run it in x64 to buy the game. I just need to know if it is a problem with the launcher or not. If it's just the launcher not coded to run x64 the launcher that comes with the purchase ought to be.
Sounds like you need the help of other pirates, we can't tell you if there is an issue with the pirated version, just that there is not with the legit version.
And I don't plan on downloading the pirated version just to help you, as I actually value my bank account details and general lack of malware! :smile.gif:
Based on that error I would have tried 32-bit Java, it does run on 64-bit OSes, might be too obvious...
I had the pirated version working 100%, no crashes on SP.. (ver. 1.1 - 1.2) and i liked the game so much that I bought it last week. I can't run the game more than 5 mins without it crashing. I know it's a display driver issue.. but i've updated my nvidia driver to the latest version, and also tried rolling back a few.
ver. 1.4.01 has something wrong with it, in it doesn't like nvidia drivers for some reason.
i'm thinking about asking the company for my money back, and going back to the pirated 1.2 ver. at least it worked fine.
I've never played a cracked version. I just wanted to play it so badly after see lot's or Famous YouTuber's play it, that I never thought about a cracked version.
There was a link floating around somewhere but I can't seem to find it where if you type your Minecraft username into the end of the address bar, it'll tell you whether that account is real or not. I was gunna get you to use it/telling us your username.
