Hello, since the last update of Java, it became IMPOSSIBLE to play my games online such as Alliance of Valiant Arms to me.
The explanations are not clear, and I can't start the games.
Why Java has changed its mode of operation?
I am very disappointed.
It's been several weeks that my children and I know more play our favorite games.
Why not use the same mode of operation and previously for WINDOW's 8?
Would it be possible to clearly explain to me how do I install java to play again at the games?

sorry i m frensh i use translator

Bonjour, depuis la dernière mise à jour de Java, il m'est devenu IMPOSSIBLE de jouer à mes jeux en ligne, tel que Alliance of Valiant Arms.
Les explications ne sont pas claires, et je n'arrive pas à lancer les jeux.
Pourquoi Java a changé son mode de fonctionnement?
Je suis très déçu.
Cela fait plusieurs semaines, que mes enfants et moi même ne savons plus jouer à nos jeux préférés.
Pourquoi ne pas reprendre le même mode de fonctionnement qu'auparavant pour WINDOW's 8 ?
Serait-il possible de m'expliquer CLAIREMENT comment faire pour installer java pour jouer de nouveau aux jeux ?

Bienvenu (=welcome) à CodeRanch.

Don’t know, but your net translater is inaccurate. It has made a mess of “savons plus”. That line ought to read
For several weeks, my children and myself have not known how to play our favourite games any more.

Welcome to the Ranch.

This is a website about programming in Java. I think it is better to ask your question to the people who make those games you are playing. I don't think anyone here can help you with this problem.

Agree with Jesper, as it's completely unclear to me what "Java changed its mode of operation" might mean.

The game mentioned is an Unreal engine game (definitely nothing to do with Java) distributed via Steam (which may have some small Java dependence, but I actually think not.)

On the other hand, Java 7 does have an issue with IPv6 and Windows 8 really likes IPv6. I had issues with several other applications and had to run them with the -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true option to make it work... (Eclipse for instance).

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
