Java WebStart Wyvern Client


Play Wyvern Here

Click to Play
This page is another way to play Wyvern, using a technology called Java Web Start. You should only use this if you can't use the new Wyvern Client Installer.

Mac OS X users: Click on the big map to the left, and Wyvern should download and launch automatically. If it doesn't, use your Software Update utility in System Preferences to get Java 1.4.1, and then try again.

First, you need to make sure you've created a character. If you don't have a character name and password yet, click here to create a character.

Next, you need to make sure you have a program called Java Web Start on your computer. If you Java SE 6 installed, you already have it. If you don't, then you may need to click on the picture below and download the latest version. Then come back to this page.

Get Java Web Start NOW!

Java Web Start installs automatically for most people. It's very easy to do. Once you have Java Web Start, you are ready to play!

If you have any trouble installing Java Web Start, check the Installation Tips below. Sometimes it doesn't install correctly, but you can almost always get it working by following the instructions below.

Java Web Start Installation Tips

The link above takes you to Sun's JRE download page. If you already have JRE 6, then you should be good to go.

If you don't have JRE 6 installed on your computer, download and install it. This will usually set Java Web Start up on your system. You can tell if it's installed by seeing if the game will launch when you click the map above.

If you can't find the installer file, go ahead and download this one from our site, and follow the installation instructions. Accept the license agreement (it's free!) and hit Next until you've installed Java Web Start.
