There is not much of a setup involved.

  1. Choose/Create a directory for all your tournaments (We recommend starting with a fresh empty directory). This is the installation directory
  2. Unpack the jtourney-VVV.bin.zip in the installation directory (You should now have a turn.jar in the directory and lib subfolder below it.)
  3. You are actually finished with preparations.

Check: When everything is setup correctly so far, you can start turn.jar at the commandline. Well, I know this is a hurdle for many. Lets see:

  1. Open a commandline by whatever means on your plattform.
  2. Navigate your commandline to your installation directory.
  3. type turn.jar at the prompt.
  4. You should get a error message, that first argument must be a directory, like: ERROR: First param is mandatory must be a (sub-)directory.
  5. If you get no or a different error message, type the equivalent java -jar turn.jar on the commandline.
  6. If you still do not get the "appropriate" error message, check the setup of your Java!
  7. Otherwise your setup is now verified.

General remark: Whenever you start turn.jar it will append information to the file log.log. This will consist of all messages you see in your commandlineinterface, but also much much more. This logging can be useful for debugging or looking up what happened. But at times, when the file grows too large you might simply want to delete it.
