    It also need a UU ladder, I can't really experiment with UU teams when everyone else is using OU.

    I need to know what version of Java you need to run this, as well as if it will run on 32-bit computers.

    You need Java 6, and I'm not sure about the 32-bit computer.

    It's alot faster than Shoddy, but what about when everyone starts playing?


    I know it says not to post connection problems, but lately I haven't been able to use Lab or Shoddy.

    Update: Now that lab is no longer part of smogon, I get lag due to many people playing. And it's a bit too easy to create an account.

    I (like almost everyone else here) am running 32-bit, and the client is working fine. The general rule is that it always works on 32-bit, and sometimes on 64-bit.

    To double check what you are go to Control Panel\System and Security\System in Windows 7.

    Can anyone help? :/

    You're opening the file with some random program when you should actually be opening it with Java Web Start (javaws). How to set up that association is left as an exercise to you and will vary depending on your operating system.

    Problem with Pokemon Lab

    i download the link and open it. it asks if i want to open or save. When i open it, another window just pops up with the same message. If i press save, i save it and then try to open it, and the same message asking if i was to open or save comes up. I really want to try this out and am very disappointed that i can't get it to work.

    Can anyone provide a quick overview over how Mod/Admin/channel flags work for pokemon lab? Having some trouble figuring that out

    Thanks

    That has happened to me a few times. Right now the servers are down, so it won't work, but usually what I do is just cancel out of everything and log back in in a few minutes.

    Cathy, please read this before deleting this. Ive done what you said (which is what I did in the very beginning). I clicked on the Smogon server ( which for some reason 0/250 people are always on) and then click connect. A window then comes up saying ''connect time out'' and wont let me into the server, never mind logon. Im certain I did the procedure correctly (who couldn't).
    This problem has been occuring since the first day pokelab came out.
    Please I really want to start playing this fantastic program.

    Hello, its not a big problem but ill like to report it anyway

    I can use pokemon lab (Its awesome, by the way =)), but once i have finished the battle it does no allow me to close the window, it just stays there. Its not a big problem because i can just go and start another battle and ignore the window of the previus one, but its kind of annoying when i have 20 battle windows =)

    Thank you!

    If it says "Connection Refused" that means the server is down.

    Maybe now people won't miss it. Can we put that in the first post?

    Can't download it.

    I can't download pokelab. I had the same problem with shoddybattle, but i fixed it by running the command terminal, javaws http://shoddybattle.com/client/shoddybattle.php. If it is possible, can you also post the command terminal for poke lab? Thnx

    I think this is pretty cool but i miss the "Find Game" and "Underused/Standard" button. Makes things somewhat easier instead of clicking on a random opponent and then selecting OU/UU, load team, etc. OR clicking on the tab to find the game.
