What is it?
The Admiral is a program to manage a database of cards for the game Pirates of the Spanish Main.. If you don't know what this is, you probably don't want to be here. It's a fun game, though - check it out.

Put the file admiral.jar in a directory of your choice. Once run, the program will create a data file in which it stores your preferences.

You need Java (version 5) to run this program. You can get it here: Java is available for most major operating systems.

The Admiral is packaged as an executable jar file. This means that once java is installed, you should be able to double-click on the file to run it. Try it.

  • If this fails, you need to run the command "javaw -jar admiral.jar" in the directory you placed the file.
  • If this also fails, you need to find where the java executable is and run it explicitly: for example, c:\program files\java\j2re1.5\bin\javaw.exe -jar admiral.jar. Contact the developer for more help.
  • The help file for the application can be read here.

    If you enjoy the program, consider letting the developer know. If you really love the program, email me for my address, and I'll accept a donation of one of your spare ships to add to my fleet.
