This is a little Java server-and-applet game I wrote two years ago. I recently got into it again and updated it to the point where I am now confident that there exist conceivable situations in which the server doesn't crash.
The game is a kind of billiard or miniature golf where all players make their moves simultaneously. Have fun!

Your game is really fun !! I 'm enjoying playing your game, even if it's pretty hard sometimes  Tongue.
I did not find anyone to play online with (well I guess, because other players were too dumb to be humans  Grin , they had to be AI), but I look forward to it. It should be a good idea to show if you're playing vs human or AI.

No idea if the networking works but the game's a lot of fun, nicely done!

Thank you for your comments! I'm glad you like it!

It should be a good idea to show if you're playing vs human or AI.

Yes, I'm planning to do that. But I don't want to clutter the interface with labels. Maybe the AI-controlled balls should just be drawn differently, e.g. non-shiny. But as you say, it's easy to spot because of its "strategy": Currently it just throws the dice whether it should shoot in the general direction of the sphere or just somwhere random. Roll Eyes

No idea if the networking works

It does! You can't play the game with the client alone, otherwise:

There seems to be a strange error that only occurs after several hours: The JVM doesn't print any error message but the server doesn't react any more, neither to clients nor to the keyboard. Unfortunately I couldn't reproduce that locally so far.

I think I've fixed the problem. The game has been running for several days now. Smiley
