Installing Freedom VR
WARNING: The number one problem that people have, particularly
Windows users, is trying to get Freedom VR to work locally. It appears that
applets that load resources such as images don't work quite right when they
are running locally with many web browsers. We reccomend that you don't
waste your time trying to run Freedom VR off the local disk, but that you
just install it on a web server to start with. This has the added advantages
that the applet won't break when you move it, and if you have troubles I can
just go to your page and take a look and usually solve them in a minute.
The first step in setting up a Freedom VR model is to install Freedom VR
on a web server. If you understand about CODEBASE and symbolic links you can
probably set up something better, but these instructions are aimed at
- Download fvr2.zip from the
- Unzip fvr2.zip.
- Move the files that spill out on to your web server into the
same directory as the .html file for your page. The names of the files
The .class files are there for older browsers, while Netscape Communicator
4 and other JDK 1.1 compliant browsers support the new .jar format which
accelerates applet download significantly.
- Next: Go the the 1-d navigation page
for instructions on setting up 1-d navigation, or the
2-d navigation page for instructions on setting
up 2-d navigation.
