I found that after completing the round up game with 100% clicking on next answer will start a new game with the question added under the graphic( Ie. lucky horseshue silver spurs etc...) and for the question that I recieved the list of possible answers was incomplete.
I was running win2000 with IE 5.5
using JRE 1.3.1

I had that happen a few times with OS Win98. Sometimes resizing the page will fix it. A glitch with UBB, I guess.

It happens to me too. In fact, every time I get 100% on all three rounds. Part of the question and the button seems to get clipped by the applet window.
Looks like a small bug in the applet to me. I have also noticed that the label on the button is wrong in this case, saying "next answer".
Reloading the applet gets rid of the problem.
I am also using Win2000 + IE5.5.
By the way, thanks for providing a great site, and the nice roundup game!

I found that when playing the game with Opera 5.12 the questions don't display at all until I resize the window. I have to resize the window on every question. Odd.

I had the exact same thing happen to me that Shanon Loveridge did. I have the same os etc..
Also, this may not be considered a quirk of the game i dunno,
but if you move the browser's scroll bar up and down really quickly while viewing the applet the graphics move down lower and higher than they should and don't get cleared on the paint event. Actually, I think this happens on any applet with graphics. If you resfresh, or minimize the browser and then maximize it again the graphic is corrected. Is their a way to prevent it?

Known bug. We're working on it. No ETA.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
