Running .bat on Mac
Ok, this is my problem. I want to play Runescape on a private server which requires me to run a .bat file. Well, Macs don't use run batch files so I was asking for some help on here. I did mostly what this guy did, http://forums.macnn.com/82/applicati...-files-mac-os/
But I still can't get it to work. I downloaded Boxer and did what the people that answered this guys post said. I would like some different directions because mine is somewhat different. Here is what my run.bat file looks like while open in TextEdit..
@ECHO OFF title AlienScape color 81 echo AlienScape Client echo Edited by AlienScape EGUIjava -Xmx500m EGUI
What should I do?
Also, most importantly, it worked on Parallels Desktop a few days ago, which means yes, I have a Windows XP emulated on my Mac, But after I restarted my computer (Windows only, not Mac and Windows.) it wouldn't work. I clicked run.bat and a box appeared really fast and just disappeared within 2-3 seconds. I did manage to catch a few word such as EGUI and Java between those few seconds.
So, if you don't know how to help me with the first one, then tell me why it won't run on my Parallels anymore.
This is from a different client (Not an older version of AlienScape, mind you.) were the box doesn't disappear automatically.
And I have a feeling that this might be whats happening to my AlienScape client as well.

MacOS X natively supports Java. Instead of lamenting the fact that MacOS X is not Windows, try to find a MacOS X solution to your problem.

A bash script would be the easiest route most likely, though I don't know what the EGUIjava command is. Probably related to the code you downloaded. The bash script would look like,
#!/usr/bin echo AlienScape Client echo Edited by AlienScape EGUIjava -Xmx500m EGUI
As far as your Windows issue where the window pops up and closes quickly. Edit the batch file and add a line with the word "pause" (w/o quotes) and save it. This will keep the window from closing until you hit a key so you can see potential error messages.
