Aikarele is a demo group (demoscene, not game demo) which has released a 64 kB intro for Java. It can be downloaded from here:http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=7145
Recently we have gotten some bug reports that the intro does not work correctly on some systems (hangs up or doesn't start) with JRE 1.4.1_01. We've tested the intro with JRE 1.4.1_01 and it worked fine, except that the scrolling film reel scrolls about 10 times slower than with JRE 1.4.0_01 (the scrolling is using copyArea() )
The only hint we've got this far is that there are some problems with Windows XP and Javasound in JRE 1.4.1, as discussed here
(Javasound mailing list).
Because we are not able to reproduce the problem, we need your help. What we would like you to do is simply download the intro and test it with JRE 1.4.1_01 and if it hangs or crashes, please tell more about your system (operating system, sound card...) either at this forum or directly to us by e-mailing to: firstname.lastname@example.org
