There are more recent versions of Java..I am sure we are up to 1.7..something. The good news is that with those versions, you dont have the disappearing checker problem - the bad is that the text wrap function is up the wall again...

Well I was keeping this current version because more recent versions break an old piece of software that I used to use a lot.  I don't use it much any more, so I guess I'll upgrade to the latest version of JRE and see if that helps.

I upgraded to the latest JRE and the checker problem still exists.

That is odd - how about the text wrapping? I definitely haven't seen the disappearing checker in the last few versions..

I haven't noticed anything wrong with text wrapping.  Where is the text wrapping problem showing up?  Anyway, I've given up and gone to Fibzilla.

Hi all  :)

I still have the disappearing checker from time to time, but another problem happened to me a couple of time. Sometimes i can't start JAVA FIBS. I have the image of the green lizard appearing with the text "JAVA FIBS 2001. Loading" but that stays at that point.

I have to kill the task in the task manager (javaw.exe*32) to try and restart it. I updated JAVA, but it does not help.

When this happen, i have to go to the folder JAVAFIBS2001/user. It contains one file (last user) and one folder "Polaris" with the list of friends, matches etc .. 

I have to delete the file "last user", and then I can start JAVA FIBS, but my list of friends is gone and I have to add them again manually  :wacko:

I have no idea why this problem happen. last time I desinstalled and reinstalled the software but it did not help  :cry:

Any help (or compassion) is welcome  :blush:

Thanks
