    If you have a legitimate case, post it here. You should read the how to first. The ban will be reviewed, so don't expect to BS your way through it.

    Please help :)

    Have you tried going to Java Preferences and deleting your cache? If you haven't, I would try doing that and then reinstalling.

    Java Preferences -> Network -> Delete Files

    Sorry, PokeLab requires a version of Java that is only compatible with Mac OSX 10.5 or higher.

    You just need to upgrade to 10.5, 10.6, or the upcoming 10.7 (should be announced next week). This may require you to have an Intel processor.

    So, once "CAM" gets going (if it ever does), can I use a Pokémon Lab server to support it?
    This looks so cool! Congrats to your hard work paying off!

    [Not sure what "CAM" is (might be in the future)? Check the Suggestions and Appeals section and all will be enlightened.]

    Is there any news on when Gen V will be incorporated into Pokelab? I only ask because I saw a youtube video of what was clearly Shoddy and featured Gen V Pokemon.

    Just to clarify.

    10.5 doesn't require an Intel processor.
    10.6+ does.

    A not so simple question so I'll ask here:

    Does Lab still use Glicko2 or did it change to GLIXARE for ratings?

    I recommend redownloading the sprites. Go to File > Preferences, click the Sprites tab, choose your desired sprite pack, and click 'Add...'.

    WillSO - it's unlikely for now, since NU isn't an officially recognised Smogon metagame.

    I would assume that would come with the actual release of the full PL.

    Yeah, problem with the lab. I open the program and connect to the server, but nothing is opening up, then about 2 minutes later I get a little popup window that say "Disconnected from server." Help?

    Edit: Nevermind, just read another post about the server being down.

    This has been explained many times in the past. "GLIXARE" is not a rating system. Glicko2 does not assign players a single number as a "rating"; each player is assigned a probability distribution. In order to create a ranking, you need to define some ordering of players. The CRE was one ordering of players. The GLIXARE is a different ordering of players. Both are designed for Glicko2. Pokemon Lab uses the Glicko2 rating system and it will use the "GLIXARE" metric to order players for ranking purposes.

    There are plans to add older generations and people have already volunteered to do so. They will be added when the necessary framework is in place. There is no ETA.

    Is there a place to see what progress is being made on the Gen V battle engine?
