When I try and open the window to play the game it takes awhile to load then freezes? didn't use to do this when I played a few months back.

There are many players experiencing the same issue over the last few months at varying degrees of seriousness. It seems to be connected to certain browsers incompatibility with the latest java version, which you've most likely updated at this point.

For me i have no problem entering the actual game server. The problem arises if i meet a player that's having an in game issue with their java/browser and results in me waiting approximately 2-3 minutes to see their game start response. So basically the 30 second start game clock runs out and no response, but most importantly i don't see any not responding notification on their part.

I would suggest browsing these linked threads for a solution. Some of the suggestions have worked for a good few people, but i guess it will require a degree of patience until you get something approaching a stable fix.

I think the first link there will help you the most, especially this post here: http://www.funkypool.com/thread/20074/java-issue-google-chrome/3#1741084

Just for the record the only way i've avoided these issues is by rejecting any java update from the version i'm currently using, which is Version 7, update 51 or 1.7.0. My browser is firefox.

Good luck with it.

Edit: I see you're on the game server now. Let us know what made the difference please as it might help a few others.

Follow the Windows Online section - Then IGNORE where it tells you to update it.

The new java 8 update 45 won't work on the game.

When you've used the link above you'll need to click on the red x in the search bar and click on always allow Plugins.

Then on LATER when the game applet opens.
See you on the baize.

When downloaded and installed java 8 update 31 make sure you always click on LATER when it prompts you to update.

You might need to change your title of the thread, I had hope thinking there was someone else out there that actually can't play

I'm the same, only problem i had was when we didn't realise old java didn't work and pirate and dex tried everything unfortunately my system restore is broken but since i'm on Java 8, 31, no problems since. Keep saying no each day when prompted to update

I'm on update 51 but I get the prompt to "run" and half the time it just freezes and I can't click so I have to restart my browser. I'm using safari though so I'll try Firefox.
