  1. VERY fun! I liked the themed enemy wizards and found at least one special room full of skeletons. One of the funnest spells is Angry Tree, I like to go outside and re-enact the Battle of Isengard!

    1. Thanks! The skeleton room is very rare so it's cool that you found it. Angry Tree is pretty silly spell but that does sound like a fun way to use it! I plan on releasing the final version this weekend.

  2. Liking the progress so far, fun game! Question, I'm trying to embed my applet to my blog, how do I add the Ascii Panel so my applet will actually run? I get a RuntimeException, "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: asciiPanel/AsciiPanel".

    This is what I have so far that's embedded, been using your tut as a start for me:

    //applet codebase=""
    height="300" archive="GladiatorRL.jar" width="400" code="net.gladiatorrl.AppletMain.class"///applet>/

    1. Ok, so I uploaded the asciiPanel.jar to my site, and then added asciiPanel.jar to the archive. It actually manages to load somewhat without error warnings, but it's just a black box. Do I have to reset the size or change some code to make the applet function?

    2. Sorry for bombarding you with comments on this particular blog post, but now I have new RuntimeException error message, "java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException".

      This is what I have:

      ///br />
      ///applet archive="GladiatorRL.jar, asciiPanel.jar" code="net.gladiatorrl.AppletMain.class" codebase="" height="300" width="450"></applet///

      Any help or advice is appreciated if you get the time!
