Java game problem - Runescape
Hi, I have a problem with a java game, not sure if this is right forum but it's worth a shot.
I was using sun java at the time, 1 version below the current (java virtual machine v1.4.2_5 I think) & now it's acting weird.
I was playing Runescape (www.runescape.com) & it was all running smooth & I logged out but left the particular browser window open & a few others then came back a few hours later, now whenever I play, the game is either really jerky or the whole game is acting like its in turbo.
It's either five times fater than it should be & play is frozen for a moment every second so it can catch up on itself or it's all stuttery.
I've scanned whole pc for virus' & spyware using various scanners.
Pc spec: 3ghz intel northwood
512 mb of pc2100 ram
9600 xt graphics card
Win XP + SP1
Internet explorer 6
Ok moving along, never had this problem before & I was playing the game for months before with no problem, re-installed the java after deleteing all traces of it I could find.
Moved over to Microsoft java instead & it was working fine for a bit but then that is jerky too.
Have tried using Firefox browser instead & still same problem.
can't figure out what is wrong with it, everyone else I have spoke to in the game has no such problem.
By the sounds of it I reckon I will have to do a full re-install of the operating system but I do not want to unless I really have to.
Any ideas as to what the problem may be would be appreciated or if anyone knows of any tools that can look for problems on a pc but specific to java plugin errors or such.
if any more info' is needed then just ask.
Thanks in advance.
