tried to use this one to install F-15 Strike Eagle III and Ah-3 Thunderstrike (1995) but none of them did it work

Why would you think that a database from Moby would help you with installing any games?

I just installed DBGL 0.82 on my Linux Mint computer...

It crashed, dumping this to the terminal window. I have absolutely no clue what could be wrong.
Code: Select all

I'm anxious to have a DOSBox frontend as easy to use as D-Fend Reloaded, and DBGL seems to be the best (maybe only) candidate for Linux.
If anyone can point me toward what could be going wrong, I'd be very very grateful.

Please use Java 8 for now, the current DBGL release is not compatible with versions 9 and up. I'm hard at work on a new DBGL release, but it will require some more time.

sorry if someone mentioned this Problem earlier but the Database search (f.e. Mobygames) when adding a new Game isnt working anymore -> states no information found or giving an obscure error message (Could retrieve Inf. - org.xml.sax.saparseexception, Line etc. White spacees are required between...)
