    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some help on installing java games on my new 6600. I've
    downloaded some games which are a couple of folders full of files (pics and
    ..class files). How do I install these onto the phone?

    Do I need to create a folder and copy every file across or is there an
    easier way?

    All help greatly appreciated...

    TIA

    The way to install a Java game is to get your hand on its JAR file. The file
    must end in ".jar" and contain a file called Manifest.mf containing the
    description of the Java application. The contents of the JAR and the
    Manifest file are pretty particular.
    If you have the game's file structure (including this Manifest.mf), zip them
    all up in one ZIP file and rename the ".zip" extension to ".jar". Then be
    sure that the size mentioned in the Manifest.mf file is the same as the
    actual size of your .jar file.... this is tricky.
    Or get a development environment (like JBuilder, etc) that can do that for
    you.
    Or just download the JAR file from somewhere

    When you have the JAR file, send it to your phone through IrDA or BlueTooth
    (or e-mail it to your phone). It will appear as a message. Open the message
    and the game will be installed.
