    Hello,

    I'm just wondering if it's possible to play a java game called Wurm Online on the Pyra. I've been playing this game for years and it can run on a pretty low-spec PC and thanks to java works great on Linux. I don't know if it works on ARM though, any chance someone else does?

    It's a free-to-play survival MMO that would be amazing on the Pyra due to being the grindiest game I've ever played.

    Maybe someone with a Pyra can check it out for me? If it works I can easily talk some of the folks I play with into ordering a Pyra. I even sometimes use remote desktop to control Wurm Online on my PC from my smartphone, just to grind skills while i'm away from home. A full copy of the game on a hand-held would be a million times better.

    Thanks!

    I thought that Java worked everywhere.

    It should do. Apparently these days the reference implementation is OpenJDK, but it's always possible old code needs an old JDK with some GUI requirements that never got open sourced. If this runs on stock android I guess that's unlikely though.

    It's more likely that you'll run into unavailable native shared libraries first. Using native libraries in Java is actually a thing.

    Yeah, I remember trying to write native classes back when I used to code Java. But if this runs on Windows and Android there are unlikely to be any of those it depends on.

    Once the Pyra is out, create a new thread, and invite ppl to play together at certain date and time.
