I have the problem that when I execute my JNLP file, there is no progress bar showing. The only thing I see is an indication of the amount of time remaining, and that thing doesn't know what it's saying. The game itself runs fine BTW.
I have about 15 JAR files that are loaded before the game is run, and have a total size of 20MB. The main JAR file is 0.2MB in size. This is annoying because users might think the application has locked up, and stop to bother.
For instance when running "http://www.cokeandcode.com/spaceinvaders104/si104.jnlp
" from Kevin Glass, there is a progress bar, where also more than 1 JAR is used. My JNLP is very basic and does contain exotic stuff.
On another forum someone has said that this has been happening since JAVA 1.6, and the progress bar now only shows for the main JAR file. I don't like to put all libraries and other music/sfx files in to one JAR, are there any other solutions? Can this be related to the server on which the files are located?
