Yeah I agree that not requiring a java install would be nice. Some people might want to try this on a public computer, and like mentionned above, Java can be a major pain to install and stop working randomly (in my case, it takes several minutes to install sometimes). Another problem is that your game will most likely stop working in less than one year as people will update to newer versions of Java.


Anyway, I just tried it and it works fine for me. I also runs smoothly and plays nicely. The only suggestion I have would be to make the calculator take a larger portion of the screen since we don't need the calc keypad anyway. It would also be cool if the Walrii game supported multiple tilesets, so that it could play both with a calculator theme and with new color tiles. :)

EDIT: Bug report: my score is always negative O.O (for example, it says Your score: -76)

I can't even play it on my computer, but I bet it's because of my old graphics card.
I have Open GL 1.1. :P
Does this qualify as a signature? 
The answer is "Sure."

What error do you get? Does the file simply not start? You need java btw. Also, AFAIK, this should work with like openGL 1. If not, then it will crash when you click play in the title screen, but the title screen defiantly can run with opengL 1 >_>

@c4ooo : No, it doesn't start. It has something to do with pixels, but when I'm at my computer, I'll post a picture of the error. I have Java, btw(honestly, who doesn't).

Here's a 9 second video of the error:

Can you figure out what's wrong? I know my Aspire 5735 has had its fair share of errors...

@Dudeman313  yep your going to have to update your openGL drivers.

DJ Omnimaga

I'm beginning to think this might also be what's causing your issues with CEmu. Either your graphic card is just too old or low-end to run anything recent, or your drivers are either outdated or corrupted.

Okay. I just need to figure out how. :P

I'm pretty sure that's the issue. If only I knew how to fix it...

Maybe you need to get Windows reinstalled from scratch? :P

Bad idea, he will end up with windows 10 :P
@Dudeman313 just search up how to opdate opengl drivers ;)

DJ Omnimaga

The Win10 thing is unless he still has his serial written down or backups of his install and reinstall from those, right? And if doing so triggers an automatic update, then why not disconnecting your Internet before re-install? Otherwise, updating your drivers should normally work.

Well it turns out that I can't. My graphics card from Intel is 1998-2006 and Intel's driver update utility says there are no new drivers available for my device, and Windows says the same. I would need to get a new card, and I don't know if my mom would get me one.

DJ Omnimaga

Then you're out of luck then. Your graphic card is simply too old to play most new games. Plus integrated Intel graphic cards were usually several years behind to begin with, anyway. Sorry.

Snektron

Appearantly the new intel integrated graphics are pretty okay.

Anyway, @Dudeman313 it might be possible to ask your parents for a newer GPU, maybe a second hand one. I think OpenGL 3.2 (which is needed for most programs) was released in 2008, so any card newer than that might do it.

She might. It depends, I might even get a Macbook for a MS graduation gift.

I wonder if java programs made to be run on a computer can be compiled for Mac using the same tools and without any changes? Java used to be known for being portable when it was commonly used for web applets, but what about standalone executables?
