You can activate Java in Microsoft Internet Explorer by opening the "Control panel" and clicking "Internet options", then setting the bar under the "Privacy" tab to medium.
If you are using Netscape / Mozilla, you can activate Java by opening the menu "Edit" and clicking on "Settings" and then selecting "Extended/Advanced". If you tick the box "Activate Java", you shouldn’t have any further problems.
If you are an Opera user, check under "Settings" ("File", "Default") to see whether the box "Activate Java" in the multimedia menu is activated. It might by that you have a version of Opera which does not support Java. Should this be the case, please install the latest version of Opera.
If these methods do not work (e.g. if you cannot activate the aforementioned menu options or the action has no effect), please install the SunJava plug-in.
If none of these suggestions work, you can also call our support team (the number is on the left under the Status window).
You also need Flash from Macromedia installed on your PC to play our games. You may need administrator privileges in order to install Macromedia Flash Player on your PC. Make sure you close all programs before you begin installation.
