This online version of JMagnetic 2 is limited to the basic functions that are needed to play the games. It lacks many features of the normal JMagnetic distribution like sound support and is intended for quick game sessions in between or offering easy access to new visitors. For serious playing I strongly recommend using the full JMagnetic 2 or any of the various Magnetic ports. You need at least Java 5 or newer and Java Webstart properly configured in order to run the games. The game size is between 0.8 and 1.5 MB.
A note on saving and loading: The application is signed with a self signed certificate and thus brings up a warning when starting. The certificate is required for loading and saving games. When prompted for a filename in the classic games you can enter * to open standard file dialogs. The save game format is fully compatible with the normal JMagnetic 2 distribution.
An important note:
The rights on the games are held by Magnetic Scrolls Ltd, which belongs to Anita Sinclair and Ken Gordon. Their games, sadly enough, have been unavailable for years, so there are very few options left to play the games in a legitimate way. The reason for making the interpreter files and the game related materials available here is to prevent the loss of the games. Anita and Ken - very nice people indeed - both know the Memorial pages and didn't object to the contents, so I assume that the page is in their spirit and the availabilty of the materials on these pages is tolerated. Of course this is not a legal entitlement and obviously the materials can only be used for personal, strictly non-commercial purposes. Read more here.
