it's simply because this is build with HSQLDB instead of mysql support.
update the file nukes/build/local.properties with the content of nukes/build/etc/local.properties-mysql and rebuild nukes
You are right!
I got a little mess with different downloaded versions and I made the change of local.properties in the wrong, old directory!
Because this stupidity I spend the whole evening on it!
Thank you very much.
I did it in the good directory the first time!
I've been trying to compile it again and I found the build script overrides the local.properties with the local.properties-example in the etc dir. So I always get nukes compiled for the example database (hypersonic). The easy workaround is to rename local.properties-example or delete it. Strange, isn't? I think it's related with the buildmagic script
