• Passing variables

    From Chronos@VERT/THETIMEM to All on Thu Mar 3 15:26:00 2005
    Ok, I need some help here... I have a NES java emulator and I am trying to pass the variable of the romname in the url. I have successfully done this and can use the document.write to display it to see if it works. And it does. My problem is being able plug the variable into a applet. Here's the applet..

    <applet code=NEScafeApplet
    archive="nescafe057.jar"
    codebase="."
    width=256
    height=240
    name=nescafe>

    <param name=ROMFILE value="roms/zelda.zip">
    <param name=SOUND value="true">
    <param name=LIGHTGUN value="false">

    </applet>

    Where I am trying to plug the variable into is the ROMFILE value section. I am passing just the name of the rom itself (i.e. zelda). Using something like
    <a href="zelda.html?name=zelda">Legend of Zelda</a>
    to pass the variable. Can this be done? I just wanted to not have to have 20 html files for the different games.

    Thanks,

    Chronos
