Thanks for the heads-up, fixed it. Using the bundled launch script now, just have to patch it to use the correct paths.

This package does not work with Java 16. As specified in (1), an --add-opens argument is required in the command line. This was added in the upstream launch script in (2), but this package seems to use a custom script that just launches a java -jar command without additional arguments (see the PKGBUILD file or run cat /bin/ki in your favorite terminal).

I believe using the upstream launch script may be a good solution here, as they have proper workarounds for this that only add the flag on Java versions where that would be necessary, i.e. on Java > 8 (3). This does need to be tested though, as it may not necessarily fix the issue.
