Weird issue running on a Chromebook

Recommended Posts

I'm running Hero Designer on a Chromebook using Croustini (Debian Stretch) with Oracle Java 13 installed.  I'm seeing a really strange behavior when I launch the app.


The first way I launch the app is by using the following command: 

java -Xms32m -Xmx64m -jar HD6.jar

This will run the application but it will be painfully slow and there will be artifacting in the UI.  So I started playing around with my options and I found that if I passed a command line flag after the HD6.jar reference the app boots up and runs (mostly) fine.  It doesn't matter what flag I pass in, it just works.  The app looks slightly different too, the splash screen is even different.


This is the command I run when things work with a minimum of issues (there's a slight display issue with file folders, which I can live with):

java -Xms32m -Xmx64m -jar HD6.jar -Ddummy=0

I'm attaching the trace.log in case your curious.
