Java Enabled [World Xiangqi League]

Your browser is not able to run Java The World Xiangqi League game client software is written in the Java programming language. This allows you to run our game software without having to first download and install any special software on your computer. The only thing you need is a web browser which has the Java language built in.

If your browser is Java-enabled, you should see a Rubik's Cube to the right. Drag it around with your mouse. (This Rubik's Cube is a Java Applet written by Karl Hrnell. Here is the source.)

The best browsers to use for Java applications are: Netscape 3, Netscape 4, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3. (Unfortunately, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 has some differences in Java which can cause some bugs. We are trying to work around these.)

Here are the steps to enable your browser to use Java. (If you are using AOL, please see our special AOL instructions.)
