Hi all,

maybe this is a newbie question - but I wonder which ways/frameworks
exists to hide the java loading screen (orange logo) when initializing an
applet ?

E.g. the pulpcore framework uses some javascript effects to put an layer
over the applet area until the applet is loaded ? Are there some generic
frameworks for this available ?

Any hint is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

There are two new really handy new applet paramaters in java 1.6: "image" and "boxmessage".

Legend of the Chambered uses both like this:

<applet code = "com.mojang.chambered.ChamberedApplet" archive="chambered.jar" width = "640" height = "480">
<param name="image" value="splash.jpg">
<param name="boxmessage" value="Loading Legend of the Chambered..">

The image is shown instead of the ugly java loading screen. The box message is shown in the browser status field.

Thanks. Didn't know those parameters. Btw. Is there a
reliable statistics on how many users have jre1.6 installed ?
