I could really use some help getting a high score system online. I've been working on a pacman game and I've just about got the actual game completed. You can check out its current state here. I plan on embedding the applet on my site. If a player gets the highscore, then I want them to be able to submit their name and a comment along with their score to a database to be displayed on a high score list. I was thinking that it would be nice if the applet could open a little form in a new window to do this, but is it even possible to open a form like this triggered from an applet? Would I have to implement text boxes inside the applet itself? I think I can send data to a PHP page via the loadStrings() function.
Help very much appreciated because I'd like to get this hosted before my girlfriend's birthday!
