JWildfire downloads

How to install and run:

  • Windows/Linux: Just download the j-wildfire-x.xx.zip-file from the link above and extract the contents of the j-wildfire-x.xx.zip to any local folder on your hard disc. This all what must be done to install the software! 🙂
    • On Windows start the JWildfire.exe
    • On Linux, either launch the j-wildfire-launcher.jar directly or use the start_linux.sh-script
    • Do NOT start the j-wildfire.jar directly (will work, but important settings will be missing, so that it will not work good!)
    • If you have problems or questions please read the supplied README-files (README!!!.txt, README_LAUNCH.txt and README_SUPPORT.txt)
  • On Mac OS X: Just download the j-wildfire-x.xx.dmg-file from the link above and double-click it. Drag the JWildfire-symbol into the Apps-folder, then launch the app using the app-launcher.

System Requirements:

  • JWildfire runs on all operating systems with a Java 7 runtime, such as Windows , MacOS or Linux.
  • The newest Java (currently Java 8) is always recommended, it usually lets the software execute faster
  • If you have a 64Bit operating system (as Windows7 64Bit) you should always use the 64Bit Java runtime.
    It will both be faster and let you use a significant larger amount of memory. You will NOT be able to render images in print resolution on 32Bit-systems or 64Bit-systems with a 32Bit-Java
  • If you have several Java runtimes on your systems the launcher tries to choose the most appropriate. You always can override this by choosing manually another runtime.

Support the author:
