    DreamBot's MacOS Guide

    Step 1) Allow apps from other developers

    Open the "System Preferences" app:

    Press "Security & Privacy":

    Press the lock symbol to allow changes:

    Check the "App Store and identified developers" option:

    Step 2) Install Homebrew

    Install Homebrew by following the instructions at their site or by opening the "Terminal" app and type or copy and paste in this command:

    /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"

    This can take a while, be patient.

     

     

    Step 3) Install OpenJDK 8

    Open your "Terminal" app again, and type or copy and paste in this command:

    brew tap AdoptOpenJDK/openjdk

    After that command finishes, type or copy and paste in this command:

    brew cask install adoptopenjdk8

    This can take a while, and after a while it will ask for your password, so type that in whenever it asks.

    Finally, type this command to ensure Java 8 is installed correctly:

    java -version

    If it's installed correctly, you should see something like this:

    openjdk version "1.8.0_252"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (AdoptOpenJDK)(build 1.8.0_252-b09)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (AdoptOpenJDK)(build 25.252-b09, mixed mode)

     

     

    Step 4) Run DreamBot

    Now that Java is installed, you can download our launcher.

    Once it's downloaded, open your Downloads folder, and right click the DBLauncher file, and press Open.

    If you don't right click and press Open, your computer will complain that it cannot verify our launcher.

     

     

    You're done! If everything went well, the launcher is now downloading our client and you should be able to launch clients.

    Thanks for reading, and if you run into any issues let us know!

    Hello, I'm new here. Tried following this guide from start to end and ended up with the following:

    dc$ java -version
    
    java version "14.0.1" 2020-04-14
    
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 14.0.1+7)
    
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.0.1+7, mixed mode, sharing)

    I can open the DreamLauncher but when I press Launch client everything disappears and the client won't open up. Nothing else happens.

    Where did I go wrong?

    Thanks for any help, wanna get going.

    My launcher gets stuck at "Please wait... Client is downloading!" and there's no network activity on the process.
