Seeing a white screen when starting the game?

Postby webearthonline » Tue Apr 04, 2017 7:57 am

If seeing a white screen when starting the game, then you will have to use a browser that supports the Java Applet Plugin on your computer.
The list has been shortened in the past couple of years as some browsers have dropped support for some plugins and plugins all together.
I have been using Firefox (V49) and Internet Explorer 11 successfully on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Browsers with Java Supported
  • Firefox (versions before 52)
  • Internet Explorer
  • Chrome (versions before 45)
  • Safari

Browsers where Java Not Support
  • Firefox (as of version 52)
  • Google Chrome (as of version 45)
  • Chromium based browsers like Vivaldi, Opera
  • Microsoft Edge

Operating Systems that have Java support
  • Windows
  • OSX
  • Linux

Operating Systems that have NO Java support
  • IOS
  • Chrome OS
Java is used heavily in Andoid, but the browsers on Android don't support the Java plugin.

I see a white screen when using Internet Explorer. Did they disable Java too? :( It was working fine awhile ago..

Just confirmed that Internet Explorer V11 on Windows 7 is still working.
What version of Internet Explorer and Windows are you using?

I'm using the latest version of IE with Windows 7. I'm going to test if it works now, it started working on another computer.
