    Runescape

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    My grandson plays this game runescape and now he can't get on again.I get to the part when you log in and it turns black. It also gives me a a red x on the black screen, on the top left corner of the log in screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my grandson is is driving me nuts

    I'm not an expert with computers but I've had this problem before. Runescape requires java to play so make sure you have it. Also on the part where you click high detail or low detail if you look at the bottom theres a list of the java programs make sure you are selecting the correct one. Hope this helps.

    You can also try downloading the windows client from the extra downloads section of the runescape site. If I think of anything else i'll post.

    I can't recommend RuneScape. I tried registering the other night and downloaded the Java applet, and within minutes my system caught two trojan horses and Bonzi Buddy trying to infect my computer. (n)

    I've contacted the administrators about this, but haven't yet received a reply.

    Runescape has no hidden files with it. Ive been using it for over 2 years and have ties with some of the developers. The advertising they use for the free version does however have a WhenU advertisement that drivesby which Im not thrilled about but members is cheap and simple security measures foil that attempt. Being said simply downloading the client doesnt give you anything, but make sure you have SUN java.

    Too many buts and hedges in that post for me to be comfortable. Sorry, I'll find a game that doesn't need to resort to such tactics.

    Ive been playing Runescape since RS1 and now im playing RS2 and ive never had any problems with it. Also no one I know has had any problems with it. So it seems safe to me.
