So I"m guessing by the lack of new replies, no one is playing trying the quiz again.

Keep on trying people. :)

When you come to the end, how do you "Check Your Score", It just seems to start again. Also I had no sound either (not that it matters) is there supposed to be some?

I only knew about 3, as opposed to lucky guesses, and I remembered a couple from an earlier go.
Roman God of Mildew? You're having a laugh! :D :D :D :D :D

The score thing is a flaw in the applet program. You have to keep your eye on it as you play.

The sound thing should be working. I don't know why it won't work for some people. The default sounds that came with the program didn't work, and I am now using some custom sounds, and some are still having problems. I get all the sounds here over the net when I play. The applet should download its jar file with all the sounds to your system and the computer should play them from the jar file.

It may have something to do with your browser settings for java applets and javascripts.

The more you play the more likely it is you'll start to recognize the questions and what you answered the last time.

I tried all the different Java settings for security on IE. There's no sound on whatever I set them

I don't know what to tell you. Everything is working fine here. I double checked the setup on my website and all the files are where they should be.

I'd did notice that when I made the change over from the old original sounds to the new custom sounds that the old sounds kept playing. That is because the old jar file with the old sounds was still residing on my computer. I had to delete that file before the new sounds would play. You may have a jar file that doesn't have sound files or the sound files I'm using still on your system.

On an XP system you should find the jar fles in the temporary internet files folder. The name will be something along the lines of QuizShow.jar followed by a hyphen and along series of alphanumeric characters.

I you are using Sun java instead of Widows virtual java machine you will find the jar files in the following path:

C:\Documents and Settings\(your local XP username account goes here)\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\Keith Heitmann\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar

Or just do a a files and folder search for "quizshow" (without the quotes.)



If you find any quizhow.jar files in the temporary files or in the jar folder just delete them. A new copy gets downloaded the next time you run the quzishow applet.

Not lately. There are over one hundred questions in the database the game can draw from already. At the start of each quiz a group of 10 is randomly selected.

How good are you?

Warning: It's not easy.

The database of questions changes each time you run the quiz.

Not too bad for a first go. Keep trying. The total database contains over 100 questions, although you only see 10 at a time.

I downloaded Sun Java (needed for another program), and sound now works

I might answer it after I finished my 'Roman Empire' topic, with more knowledge at that time :p

Thanks :)
