How do I install the game?



If you download the game directly to your phone, you will usually be asked whether you want to install the game.
If you want to install it at a later point, locate the game file on your phone where it was stored.

Information on what to do if you downloaded Fantasy Worlds to your computer can be found here.


How do I start the game?



After you have downloaded and installed the game, you must locate the game application to start it.
It is usually located in the Extras/Programs folder (e.g. Nokia N-Gage), or in the Tools/Programs folder (e.g. Nokia 7650).
Information on the first steps after starting the game can be found here.


How do I connect to the gameserver?



It is important to choose the correct network profile when playing Fantasy Worlds: Rhynn. Otherwise you will not be able to establish a connection to the gameserver.
You will be asked to choose a connection profile right after you started the game.
Most often, wap-only profiles will not work because some constraints are often in place at the operator's gateways. Your best bet are profiles which you can use to make "real" internet connections (e.g. connections which allow you to check emails etc.), working on CSD, HCSD, GRPS, EDGE, UTMS or other data protocols.

What features are available in the current version?



Overview: features


I have downloaded the game file to my computer, what now?



First, make sure, you downloaded the .JAR file, NOT the .JAD file.
You can transfer the file to your mobile phone or run it on an emulator on your computer.

Transfer to your mobile phone can be done with an infrared or bluetooth connection - or any other way of transfer supported by your mobile phone and your computer.
Depending on how you transferred the file, it is either received as an SMS or stored on the local mobile device file system.
Locate the SMS/file and install it. Then, start it.

If you want to play the game on an emulator, you might need both, the .JAR file,AND the .JAD file.


What is a .JAD file and what is a .JAR file?



JAR = Java Archive
JAD = Java Application Description

While the .jar file contains the executable content, the .jad file is a description file for the .jar.
To run the game, you will need the .jar file.
Most mobile phones require that you direct them to the .jad file, before they can download the .jar archive.
Some other mobile phones however allow you to download and install the .jar file directly.

If you intend to download Fantasy Worlds: Rhynn to your computer, you must download the .jar file and transfer it to your mobile phone
(Playing the game on an emulator might require both, the .JAD and the .JAR file).


What is the Series 60 Platform?



The Series 60 Platform is an open standard.
It allows development of applications that run on more than just one specific device.

Fantasy Worlds: Rhynn is designed to run on Series 60 Platform devices, but it may run on other Java enabled phones, too.

See the offical Series 60 page.


What is an emulator?



An emulator is a program running on your computer.
It simulates a device/product which usually exists in reality (like a mobile phone). This simulation is typically based on a graphical representation on your screen that looks like the device/product in reality.
With the mouse (or other input) you can then use the device simulation on your computer just as if you were using it in reality.
