    Default Java Game Launching Problem

    Hello,

    This is my 2nd thread on this forum.
    I would really like some help from this java community.

    We have created a website called GameOn247.com and we’re having some issues.
    We’re trying to pinpoint what the problem is.

    I would like to ask you guys for some help.

    Please follow these steps and let me know your results.

    ANY help is greatly appreciated!


    1. Go to : GameOn247.com

    2. Quickly register.

    3. Try to launch the “Black Jack” game from the GO247 page

    Found here: August 18 2011 win Tournament prizes for free playing sports picks & Vegas games to become Today's Champion.

    4. Report your findings

    Example

    Operating System : Mac Lion
    Browser : Safari
    Error Message : Invalid Plug In
    What Happened : Game didn’t launch
    Did Black Jack load successfully : No

    And the same suspicions that this is simply an attempt to get traffic (and registrations) to the OPs website...

    Operating System : Win 7
    Browser : Chrome
    Error Message : none
    What Happened : Game did launch
    Did Black Jack load successfully : yes

    But the problem is on Mac OS.

    I had registered a while ago, I play there sometimes.

    lol that was not hard buncha whiners.

    His thread keeps getting closed because someone mistakenly thinks it is spam. How is a guy supposed to get help when the thread keeps getting closed on him? He just needs 1 or 2 of us with a mac to test it, not everyone.

    [sarcasm]Whoever keeps closing the thread is RUDE because it is a legit problem. Poor guy just wants some help...opps sorry we don't like you, take your links and shove them, thread closed....lol[/sarcasm]

    It looks quite a bit like spam. "Come help me, all you have to do is register for this other website". Seems shady, and there are really easy ways to make it seem less shady.

    By asking an actual question, or posting code, or making a small test section of his website available to us so we don't have to register?

    I would agree that would calm a few people down over this.

    Not to mention the fact that many of us are doing this from work or school, where games and annoying ads might be frowned upon. The OP could create an SSCCE program and post it on a page that doesn't contain extra crap like game logos or advertisements. He could then explain the problem he's having, and people would be completely willing to help.

    Instead, saying "Here's my webpage, go register and report back here!" just seems rude and spammy, not to mention the crossposting (which the OP has been told about before), so it annoys people. Annoyed people are not usually very helpful.

    What's so hard about "make it easier for people to help you"?

    That's why I use the programming forums, no annoying ad video with audio over there.

    Kevin you are making a lot of sense, sorry for going off like I did over a problem that's not even mine.

    I obviously loiter round all the wrong sort of forums, because I've started seeing sock puppets everywhere...
