How much success have you had with the flashBackLight method?  This is the only method call that has worked to some extent i.e. the backlight comes on for half a second and then turns off and doesn't turn on again.  The vibrate call doesn't work at all.  The standard Nokia API has methods to call flashBackLight and vibrate but these won't work from a Java 60 series handset.

I would appreciate replies for any successes on this subject.

i never used the flashbacklight() method, i simply have no use for it (therefore my question).
the midp2 vibration works very well for me. the problem with vibration and light on series 60 is a common issue which nokia has noticed but never supported a workaround...

ahh, so you're looking to keep the backlight on whilst the user plays the game.  Thanks for the clarification.

Only seems possible to me using DeviceControl.setLights().   Sad
