Hi, Does the rules round up game for in the Opera browser for anyone? The applet doesn't load for me. No problems in Firefox, or IE, just Opera is a problem. I'm running version 8.5 build 7700.

Thanks.

Can you load other Java applets? Did you look at the Java console to check for specific error messages?

I am using Opera version 8.01 with JDK 5, and I can get the rules roundup game to work if I let Opera identify itself as Opera or as Netscape, however I get nothing at all on screen (no errors or grey box) if I have Opera identify as Internet Explorer.

So - perhaps you just need to change what Opera is identifying itself as.

The original game works no matter what Opera is identifying itself as.

Regards, Andrew

I tried a couple of pages to see if other applets worked and they did.
These are pages I tried:
http://www.bodo.com/javame.htm
http://www.student.oulu.fi/~sairwas/object-test/java/

Sorry, I don't know how to check the console.

Sorry I don't see where to change what Opera is identifying itself as, but your right the original game works fine for me.

In the 8.0.1 release of Opera, there is a "Quick Preferences" menu under the "Tools" menu. It can also be accessed by pressing F12 at any time.

At the bottom of the Quick Preferences menu is a set of radio buttons that allow you to choose how the browser should identify itself.

If you don't have a Quick Preferences menu, then you might have to look under the Preferences menu.

Regards, Andrew

Interesting. No exceptions, no messages, nothing in the logs, no clues. It's a mystery at this point, but I'll be looking into it.
