Hi! I just installed BSW last night and everything was fine until I oppened up the client where the bottom part of the screen is repeated or super-imposed on the top left.


Just in case you're wondering about my computer specs:
Intel i7 940 @ 2.93 GHz
6 GB RAM
Sparkle GTX 285 1GB *Updated the drivers to the latest
Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard
Running Windows XP

The error looks like this:


Thanks for any assistance you can give.

Try updating your Java runtime.

Try running in a browser window instead of client.
Try resizing the window.
Try going in a game and see what that looks like.

I've never seen that, so I'm just guessing.

Resizing just makes the client create more superimposed images >_>
I can't even use the online version (the non-client one)
I can't get into games since the graphics go crazy when I move my mouse over some of the forms on the application.

I might have to use my 9 year old computer to play BSW... T_T

Thanks for the suggestions though

Windows 7 is perhaps overkill just for this particular problem, and yet still an option to try.

It sure does seem odd to run Windows XP on an i7 system. I ran XP until recently, but only because I didn't want to try a new install. When I bought a new PC recently, of course I got Windows 7 with it.

BSW (due in part to java I think) can get glitchy at times. Going to another room sometimes fixes it. In the "chat window" you can type:
/room 1
and hit enter (any small positive integer should work)
If you want to go back to the manager (start screen) use
/manager

Please try the newest JAVA (http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp) update available today 1.6.0_18 and tell me/us please if you can see some differences.
It should fix some GraphicCard issues.

Cu alex

(xp is getting old .. slowly ...)

FOUND THE SOLUTION!!!!!all you have to do is unistall all the java components you have installed and then run the game.it will automatically find a java version and install it and then everything will be ok!!!!
