Can any one over there tell me how to play "Rules Roundup game"?
The problem I meet is that after my clicking either "Play it now"
or "Rules Roundup game", there is a large empty area on window
where I guess the applet should be. I do not have any clue to
why it is. Any hint, any help???

This probally isn't necessary, but is your browser java enabled? In Netscape, click edit, preferences, and then advanced (not the + sign by the word but the word itself). From there you can enable the browser to use java and other things. I'm not familiar with Internet Explorer.

In Internet Explorer...
Select "Tools"
Select "Internet Options"
Select the "Advanced" tab
Check all three choices under Java VM
I'm not sure if you need all three, but that's the way mine is set.

Yes, my browsers(both NS and IE) are java enabled. Are there any other possible reasons which cost it?

It does take a minute or so to load ... are you being patient??

Perhaps you have an old JVM on your machine?

Daniel,
I was facing the same problem until a couple of weeks back. I was using an older version of IE, which complained that the Rules RoundUp page required the Microsoft Virtual Machine to be installed. I installed the latest version of IE(5.00.2919.6307) with the MVM and it worked fine. I did not want install the MVM, but I had no choice. Looks like the web pages have a dependency on the MVM. Hope this helps.

This is freaky weird. The current applet is JDK 1.0 compliant. It does nothing to request that a JVM be donwloaded. It should work with any browser as is.
Anybody else have more info on this?
