    Default HELP

    Greetings my fellow Java lovers,

    I have a big project to do for college.... I have to get an open-source executable java game and insert it in netbeans and make it work (it has to be simple like 5-7 classes).

    Now our professor did say one thing that they should not be an applet, rather they should be an executable

    now I have got this one - glenn.sanson.free.fr v2.0 and when I downloaded the source code it had all sorts of applet stuff (i am terrible at java ) and well I couldn't get it running on netbeans but I don't know whether this is because it has an applet or because it uses this library called JIGA and i didnt import the library???

    So I have two questions ... Is the source code of this website - glenn.sanson.free.fr v2.0 - an applet version??? Is there anyway to run it in netbeans?
    Basically i downloaded the .jar file (because I was having trouble including the JIGA library inside the source code) turned it into a zip , extracted it - highlighted all the java classes added them to my project folder... but i am guessing it is not suppose to work that way....and there is no run button (it is grayed out) Help!!!

    And second - where do I get another open-source java code for a game - it has to be an easy one - 5-7 classes and a NON-applet version that I can put in netbeans and run it?


    Thanks!!!

    Hello tewodros_yifredew.

    You didn't provide a link but after a quick Google search I take it you are talking about the 'Frozen Bubble' game?
    You can play the game at this link but it is an applet.

    Looking at the website, there are 2 downloads. The source code (.zip) and the compiled JAR file. Have you downloaded the .zip?

    Your best bet for finding another open source Java game is to Google it.

    Post all generated errors by your java compiler as well as IDE.
    So that we could have a look over that. We don't know what you are missing and what more you want to add to make it running.
    Waiting for your further reply with posting of errors.
