  • Processor: Pentium III class CPU with 500 MHz or something equivalent
  • Memory: 256MB RAM
  • Mouse: Generic two button mouse, but a three-button mouse with scrollwheel is highly recommended. JPatch should work on Mac OS-X, but it will not work with a single button mouse!

Operating System

Any OS that supports Java, including Mircrosoft Windows, Linux and Mac OS-X


A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.4 or later is required. It can be downloaded from Sun Microsystems. You’ll need the J2SE (Standard Edition - Core/Desktop) version of Java. Download and install the JRE to just run java applications (smaller download, does not include the Java compiler). Download and install the JDK (Java Development Kit) which contains the JRE and the Java compiler if you want to create and compile Java applications.

Installing and starting JPatch

Download the .zip or .tar.gz archive and extract it into a folder of your choice. Start it from the commandline via java -jar jpatch.jar or by doubleclicking on the jpatch.jar icon (the latter will only work if you OS supports it and if .jar files are associated with the Java VM). Be sure that the java binary is in your PATH.

After starting JPatch a dialog will ask whether to start the modeler or the animator. Alternatively you can start JPatch from the commandline and add the -modeler or -animator switch.
