Could just script everything in Flash so that you would be able to pull images from other locations.

I'm pretty sure flash has the same limitation (it's a security risk for pages to be able to connect and send any data to any host on the internet). Plus I dont know flash very well so writing googleoids in flash would take considerably more time.

It would be cool is it had a 5 second or so loading between each level

Noted: I will put this in the next version.

Still no pictures for me :whip: :whip: :whip: :whip:

Even with the standalone version?

Very odd. Maybe you could check your Java Internet settings?


Thanks for your comments people. Its great to have some help improving Googleoids.

Mike.

Googleoids has been updated:

http://www.googleoids.com

I've put in some 5 second delays to give images chance to load.

Sometimes Java does not download the new version when I make changes. To force this to happen, click Tools in your browser and then Sun Java Console. Press x on the keyboard to clear the cache. Now press Refresh in your browser and the applet will be updated.

Hi all,

I wanted to bring this thread back to life, because I have a problem with the high score table.

Unfortunately the high score table is getting abused with swearing and general rubbish I don't want on there.

I've thought of limiting the name to be three letters (initials) but I'd rather not.

Any ideas how I can stop the vandalism?

Thanks,

Mike.

Hello:
You can run the words through a ban list to see if any match and then just take out those words. You can also put everything on some sort of approval list where you need to approve everything before it gets posted.

Seems like quite a lot of effort.

I guess if I got a list of swear words in a file it would be fairly easy to implement.

Its a shame people feel the need to abuse sites in such a way, oh well.  :?
