So, it's been almost 3 years to the day since I started the thread that I was deleting Java from all my computers. I have just *finally* run into something that requires Java to run. The soundsense plugin for Dwarf Fortress requires you to have Java running
Kind of a bummer, but not enough to get me to install Java at this point. Been playing the game for a month or two without it anyway, and was interested to start using that as well. Not for the music so much (I'd have turned that portion off) as the Dwarves yelling something about events and the sound effects. Ah well, hopefully one day there will be a non Java soundsense, or at least something that uses a standalone Java similar to how I believe Minecraft now does.
Was gonna post this in the old thread, but that was locked. Is Stardock now locking old threads that haven't been posted to in a while to prevent necro posts?
