Problems with Yahoo Games

  ZootHornRollo 21:00 22 Sep 2004

A friend of mine is having this problem: He wants to play Backgammon on Yahoo but having accessed their game site, logged on and selected the "Room" he wants to play in the backgammon graphics (an applet) refuses to load even though it says 'Done' at the bottom of the screen.

Any ideas on how to get around this problem - he's written to Yahoo who have so far ignored him and there is nothing on their website that appears to deal with this. any suggestions gratefully received.

Sounds like the java runtime is not installed

Thanks for the tip - had a look at the link. Is it the "J2SE v 1.4.2_05 JRE includes the JVM technology" option or one of the others that my friend needs to use?

Had a go at getting from tucows - Sun's site was not very accomodating. Downloaded and installed it but still no joy. Any alternatives you can think of
