Hi everyone,
I'm having some strange problems playing the round-up game. When ever I play it, I can't see the questions? I can see the answers, and the done button (sometimes). Is this happening to anyone else?
I'm using the latest jdk(1.3.1_02). I have even tried it with the 1.4 beta. To be honest with you, I think this all started when I upgraded to 1.3.1_02. I'd like to know if this happened to anyone else? It might be a bug? I don't know, but this is not the only applet that I'm having a problem with. Thanks!

Can you also let us know which browser you are using, and it's version number ... also your operating system, if we can find someone with the same setup we might be able to figure this out.

I was using IE 5.5, but now I upgraded to IE 6.02 and I'm still having the same problem. At home I'm using Windows ME, and I get the same problem at work with Windows 98. Both Browsers.
Thanks,

When I do the roundup game on my laptop. This happens to me also. I have to scroll up then down for the question to appear. Some kind of redrawing problem. It is a W2K OS with IE5.5 computer.

Hi Jim,
It's the same for me. I have to minimize the window and maximize it to see anything. I just tried it with Netscape 6.2 and the same thing happens. Weird

Well I fixed it, somehow? I uninstalled and reinstalled different versions of the jdk many times. I now have jdk 1.3.0_5 on my pc and the round up game works.
Here the thing!! It didn't work the first time. I went to Sun's java page for the Java Plug-in and tried out some of the examples. One of them installed a version of the plug-in (version 1.3.1_01 I think). So now everything works.
Not too sure if its a bug with the new version of the jdk or not? I've also went back to IE 5.0. I'm too scared to upgrade anything in fear that these problems will happen all over again
Well thought I'd let everyone know. Thanks for all your help as always!!
