It runs well under Netscape for windows, and IBM's JIT for Linux. It runs decently in Internet Explorer on windows. Netscape for X tends to explode at random while playing, but it seems to do that with or without my applet. It is also very sluggish. I highly recommend Netscape/win32 or IBM's JIT for Linux for fast play. If you try it on a Browser or OS I don't list here, please email me and tell me how it went.
