Note: The ChaosWorld Java applet has been written using Sun's JDK 1.1.4. It has only been tested on Netscape 4 which must have the latest JDK 1.1 upgrade patch (available from http://home.netscape.com/).
The game runs best on at least a Pentium 120Mhz.

Also note: that the robot properties panel on the right has been disabled for this release of the game because inefficiencies in the code were causing it to slow the game down a lot.
