1. This is really a great site for Java-Programmers and wanna-be's!
2. I tested your nice Java game (the one with the cows..), but I faced some problems with the user interface of the applet: the radio button representing my answer has to be marked by clicking with the mouse and additionally (this is the trick!!!) with my "space"-key. Otherwise the applet doesn't recognize the answer.
I am running a Linux box (Mandrake 8.1) with a Mozilla 1.1 browser and a Java 1.4 RT environment (including a Java 1.4.plugin). By the way,in my environment Mozilla is the only browser under Linux being able to work with this applet (my favourite Opera still (V6) has problems with the Java-plugin.
My question: is the strange behaviour of the applet a known problem ?
Good luck & regards

Welcome to JavaRanch, Franz!
Use of a JRE post 1.3 is a known problem. It says so right on that page:
WARNING: If you have installed Sun's jdk version 1.3.1 or higher, you will need to disable the option to "Use Java 2 v1.3.1_02 for <applet>
I've been able to get it to work without disabling Java 1.4 (through some quirky work around as you've discovered), but it works a lot better on an older JRE. Perhaps someday someone will rewrite it...

Is the original source code still available?

Just between us, I could sneak it to you if you promise not to tell.

Actually we're working on it.

Is there a reason it's closed source?

Paul Wheaton, owner of the code, is on vacation right now. Since it's his code, he'll have to let you know. Some code he shares, some code he doesn't.

With the JDK-1.4.1-MozillaPlugin it works fine.
Thanks for your patience
