I cannot get the Rules roundup to work. Does it require a specific version of Java?

We occasionally have people post about problems with the game; usually it's something we can't reproduce. You can help us figure out what's up by

  • Telling us the exact URL you're going to
  • Telling us what browser and version you have
  • Telling us what OS and word-size (i.e., 64-bit Linux)
  • Describing what happens when you visit the URL, and what you expected to happen instead

    The link http://www.javaranch.com/game/game2.jsp

    pauses for a second then takes me here

    http://java.com/en/download/inc/windows_new_xpi.jsp

    The link http://www.javaranch.com/game.jsp

    Just has text on the page. I assume there is a window on the page somewhere that's supposed to be the game, but I can't tell as there is no big square space open.

    I'm using Firefox 3.6 and IE 7 but I think IE is using some old version of Java. I think our time card program at work uses Microsoft's Java so I had to keep the browser set that way...

    I have several versions installed. Hmm, I may have stumbled into some political mumbo jumbo
    Firefox is disabling the java plugin
    Java 2 Plugin v1.5_00-1.6_99. Reason: These versions of the Java plugin are no longer supported by Oracle and cause severe stability issues for Firefox 3.6 and later (see bug 634639)

    I believe Microsoft's Java stopped somewhere around JDK 1.1.4, but the Rules Roundup applet should actually work with Java 1.1. I just had a look and the class files are actually version 45, which is 1.1 compatible. I don't know if the applet works with Microsoft's JVM, though, and I suppose it's possible you have an older version of that as well.

    But if you installed the latest Sun^H^H^HOracle JVM for Firefox, then that would almost certainly work.

    That was it I think. FF did not support that wide range of java plugins. I installed the latest and I'm back chasing cows again
     
    I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
