PCLinuxOS download information


Hello Everyone,thank you for taking the time to stop and check in on this thread. =]
I recently downloaded an online game,"Rumble Fighter" one of those "mmorpg" things,or whatever they are called because some people i knew insisted on it.it downloaded but wouldn't go online, it said i had to connect it to an application i had-i clicked internet but it said it had to be connected to a sub-folder in internet, so I was just wondering if any of you knew how to
get it to work.well that about wraps it up,feel free to comment, reply or send me some sort of notification if you have answers. thank you for reading and Have a nice day.

Does the program start up and run?

When you say it "wouldn't go online", do you mean there is a particular function which requires connecting to a web site or server? What happens when it tries to connect?

What does this mean?

Finally, does your internet connection work normally for other things--eg web browsing?

yes it is one of those games where you play with millions of others online.

when i had to connect it to an application there were several sub folders, I couldn't just click internet.

and yes,my internet connection does work. I am web browsing right now, searching for answers to this mystery.
there might just be something wrong with my download because it would load then open a black pop-up screen then close. I deleted it, and am currently re-installing it.

Try getting any software to run in Vista and you'll run even faster, friend!
