Trouble with Quicktest

I’m trying to do a quicktest on my game, but I’m running into trouble even starting the Quicktester. Both the .bat and .html files open up fine, but both encounter separate problems as soon as I do. The quicktest.bat file (which unlike the randomtest.bat file I have to manually type into Command Prompt to use) gives me the error “Unable to access jarfile js.jar” and the quicktest.html file gives me the error “Invalid scene_list instruction, only allowed at the top of startup.txt”. My choicescript folder contains a js.jar file, and the only thing above the scene list in my startup.txt file is the default comments about the copyright, and I’ve even moved the *scene_list group around to see if that made any difference. Both running the entire game on Firefox and running the randomtest.bat files work perfectly fine, so I can’t figure out why only Quicktest seems to be having issues. Help?

Welcome to Choice of the Ancient Hero, a story based on the tales of the Greek heroes.  Step into the shoes of the next great hero of Illas, where the gods still roam the land
and you're as likely to encounter a sphynx on your way as a bandit.  Will you slay monsters, be blown by the whims and wills of the gods, and finally achieve immortality
through the people's stories, or will your life flicker out like a caterpillar snatched away by a bird before it has a chance to even dream of being a butterfly?

Thus begins my first Choice.

*page_break

In a dark cave, a dark god sits at work, watching souls flicker by, wailing for their life, their loved ones, their gold.  Fools, all of them.  Worthless lives, following a worthless path,
too timid, or lazy, or complacent to pursue what could have been.  Death comes for all in the end, and all you leave behind you is your impact in others' lives, like a footprint in the
sand too deep for the crashing of waves to wash away.

Try putting the scene list below the *title and *author commands.

Don’t know if this is causing your problem but CS is case sensitive and you’ve capitalised the items in your scene list. Make them all lower case and see if that resolves the issue.

The capitalization seemed to be the problem! Thank you!
