Which method calls fail if we do not do this?
I don't know about what failure your code is encountering, but I'm guessing it's a NullPointerException when trying to access the applet Graphics.  For me, it looked like my code was stopping when it encountered the applet not being ready, so nothing was rendered other than the default update() routine.

hey, I know this is an old thread, but it might be a good idea to copy the agreed upon best template to the OP for ease of access.

I agree with that. There were lots of discussions of what is the best template and I couldn't realise which was the final product.

Also, we have several 4k resources spread in different sites, like programming tips, compressor tools, it'd be great if we have everything in the same place. I'd suggest to have everything in site. Not sure if it'd be too much work to set a wiki section where we could contribute with documentation.

We could have sections like: Templates (both applets and app (last competitions)), Programming tips, Compressor, Tutorial (could add stuff from, Games (this one we already have) - also in this section we can have a link of the source code of the games whose authors allowed it to be published)

Any other thoughts?

I think it would be good to have a template shoot-out - not just putting up code, but putting up a basic applet using them too - so that we can get a handle on which templates work for OS X, and on other possible issues.

Mine is at
It seems to have an inconsistent bug with IcedTea / Firefox / Linux, but there doesn't seem to be a way to get a console and see whether there's a stack trace. Grr.

Note to self: put up a demo with when I get home.
Very good point. I think the templates on this page aren't even Mac OS X -  compatible, so 90% of the games are unplayable. It would be good to get these tested and figure out what actually works for everyone.
