Java 8 Required as of PhantomBot 2.3.3
If PhantomBot 2.3.3 or later is started up and appears to hang, please review the stacktrace.txt file. You may see a message such as:

The library that is used to provide Discord support requires Java 8, and as such, you will need to ensure that you have Java 8 installed on your system.
[EDIT] Upcoming launch scripts will detect what version of Java is being used and not start PhantomBot.
Please install Java 8 onto your system to resolve the issue.
