Game Help

How do I install or enable Java games to work for me?
Either your computer does not have Java installed or you have Java disabled. Note: Microsoft Windows XP does not come with Java included, you must download and install it from Sun's website.

To download and install java please click the following link to download the latest version of Java.

If you already have Java installed, then you may simply have it disabled.

To check if Java is enabled using Internet Explorer:

  • Select Tools from the main menu.
  • Select Internet Options.
  • Select the Security tab.
  • Select Internet under the Zone Selection area.
  • Move the slider bar to Medium (High safety disables Java).

    If you are using a custom security level, select the Custom Level button and make sure that Java permissions is set to enable Java and that Run ActiveX controls is enabled. Also, make sure you have the JIT (Just-In-Time) compiler option turned on from the advanced settings tab for best performance.

    To check if Java is enabled using Netscape:

  • Select edit from the main menu.
  • Select Preferences.
  • Select Advanced from the left selection area.

    In the advanced settings make sure that "enable Java" is selected.

     

    How do I install or enable ActiveX games to work for me?
    ActiveX only works with Windows computers and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Firefox, Netscape, and the Mac OS are not supported.

    To check if ActiveX is enabled using Internet Explorer:

  • Click on Tools and select Internet Options.
  • On the Internet Options screen, click the Security tab (near the top of the window).
  • Click Custom Level... near the bottom of the window.
  • On the Security Settings window, scroll down until you see a section labeled "ActiveX controls and plug-ins".
  • If anything in this section is marked Disabled, change it to Enabled or Prompt. Do this only for controls containing the word ActiveX in the description.
  • Click OK on the Security Settings window; click OK on the Internet Options window.
  • Navigate to the game you were having trouble with, or Refresh your browser if you were already there.
  • Anytime you are prompted to use ActiveX controls and plug-ins on BillyBear's games, click Yes.

    If it says that you do not have enough memory (or other messages)... reboot your computer to free up the memory needed to run the program. (My computer has plenty memory... but I still receive this message from time to time)
