Permissions issue with Java Applet (w/java commodore 64 game emulator)

I've got a Java emulator which plays Commodore 64 roms on a webpage (don't worry, this is legal because these games are abandonware).

Anyway, when I load the emulator on my own computer, it loads the game just fine but when I load the emulator on my server in a webpage, it loads the emulator but the emulator doesn't seem to load the game.

This is what it does

The Java Emulator isn't finding or reading the game.  The same set up works on the official site as seen here
http://www.jac64.com/games/play-27.html
(note that my emulator is loading a different game).

I've had this same problem with other java related stuff on my server.

I've got a windows server which I have with Godaddy and I manage it using Plesk but I do have access to log on to the server also.  I don't know if this is a permissions issue or what but if it is, it would be great if someone could walk me thru getting this to work.


Thanks

It doesn't show any errors.  You can see what I'm seeing here

It's suppose to just load up the game after a few seconds but it doesn't.

looks like you haven't loaded the required images on your server
they are in a c64/images directory

>>java.io.FileNotFoundException: http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/c64/test/c64programs/Bonzieed.prg

You need to put that file in the right place. Looks like you're missing some icon files too

All the files are where they are suppose to be.  Everything is exactly the same as it was on my computer and it worked just fine on my computer but as soon as I put it on my server, it wont load.

Looks like it's partially running though:

CEHJ: The weird thing is, that file is actually where it's suppose to be located

http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/c64/test/c64programs/Bonzieed.prg

It says file not found but it's actually there.

It's almost as though the java is unable to load unknown file types because I had another emulator which would load any of the roms but when I changed the file extension of the roms to .html, the emulator loaded them.  Doing that wont work with this emulator since it's unable to load the roms once they have a different extension but I wonder if there's something on the server that would allow me to allow uncommon file types more permissions or something.

the missing images I mentioned have nothing to with the emulator, they are loaded by the wenb page. Emulator itself appears fine.

its not where your web server is looking, they need to be under the web servers directory

Hmm. Can you post an ftp directory listing?

That's exactly what's happening, as if java can't load unknown file types but it's something to do with the server because when I had these same files on my computer locally, it worked just fine.

You might need to add a new mime type in Plesk although you should check with support about that
