Hi,

I have made a simple java applet game which i have on my web site and the applet is unsigned. The problem is that users to be able to play my applet must make security configuration changes in the Java control panel and then also accept the warning window that pops up. I'm sure this extra issue needed from the clients scares mostly away.

I don't really need to sign my applet because it does not need to do anything outside the sandbox like read and write files on clients computers. But i guess all applets should be signed today? Or can you avoid the security issues without signing your applet?

Anyhow i have looked around for certificates from Certificate Authoritys that can sign applets and those i find are way to expensive for me and my hobby site. Are there free ones oar at least cheap ones?

Best regards
