When I launch scrolls.exe (either from the start menu or manually through C:\Users\8b!t\AppData\Local\Mojang\Scrolls\scrolls.exe // C:\Users\8b!t\AppData\Local\Mojang\Scrolls\game\scrolls.exe), I get an error that displays "Data folder not found...There should be 'Scrolls_Data' folder next to the executable".
I have a Scrolls_Data folder next to Scrolls.exe, and it's 9.6mb in size, not empty. I've tried deleting the folder and repairing the installation, manually deleting scrolls and reinstalling, and fully uninstalling/reinstalling through the installer itself. I get the same error each time.
I have the exact same problem and I don't know how to fix it. I have tried to reinstall the file with same problem. I watched your YouTube video and double checked the location of my files. Like you, there is a Scrolls_Data file with data in it right beside of the Scrolls execution. Still, I can't launch the game.
Okay, downloaded a new installer, used it to repair Scrolls (that was an option in the installer), and used the executable (in \AppData\Local\Mojang\Scrolls\scrolls.exe) to download it again. The command prompt downloader proceeded to unpack and launch the game sucessfully... it's running right now.
Not sure what I did, but aside from download it again, but it's working now, so all is good. All I can say is, watch the cmd prompt that downloads the game very closely this time. :)
Congrats Cycloneblaze that it worked for you at least. I have tried reinstalling five times, even launching it as you suggest n \AppData\Local\Mojang\Scrolls\scrolls.exe, trying the repair option several times. Still same error.
I did borrow a relative's computer and downloaded the game through the same internet connection I used for my computer. Scrolls worked on the other computer. But as that computer is not mine, I can not play Scrolls much on it. I need the game to run on my main computer.
I finally got scrolls to play, but in a strange way. I was looking in \AppData\Local\Mojang\Scrolls and noticed a zip file called "game". I opened it with WinRar and saw it was the zipped game (though there is also an unzipped version of the game on my computer too from the download).
Within WinRar, I clicked on Scrolls.exe and it allowed me to play the game. I then made a copy of the zip folder, moving it to my desktop and unzipping it. This version also allows me to play the game.
There is still the "data not found" error if I click the original desktop icon for Scrolls or the one that that appears in as \AppData\Local\Mojang\Scrolls\scrolls.exe.
From this experience, it seems to me that there is some unknown error in the unpacking stage right after the download of the game. It creates a zipped and unzipped version at the same time, leading to errors.
At least I can play the game now. Hopefully this info will help anyone else having similar problems.
Yes, I'm pretty sure that's what went wrong. After scrolls.exe downloads the game files, it attempts to unpack them, and I think that's what failed for us. So you can either try the download/unpack process again, or unpack game.zip yourself, with WinZip or WinRAR or something.
I hope this thread helps others with the same problem. That'd be cool. :)
