[Main Features]: This Java applet implements a fully configurable board game which you win by connecting the same N specified objects horizontally, vertically, or diagonally against the computer.

[Execution Tips]: Click within one grid cell to place your object. Computer will move next. To start a new game, click on the 'New' button. Click '?' to see the simple rule. Click "Resume" to resume play.

[Download and Installation Guide]: Be sure to read our FAQ 1 about license agreement before you use this program. Download and uncompress the file under your web directory. You can use the configurator in the next section or do it by yourself as follows:
Use a file editor (e.g. WordPad) to open nconnect.html and copy the code segemnt between starting and ending APPLET tags into your desirable HTML file. Supply your own images and type in their filenames. If you have a game, say, 10 rows and 10 columns, with each grid 36 x 36, you will have a display area 360 wide and 360 tall. Remember to add 20 to width and 50 to height for the display area. So, you should set 'width' to 380 and 'height' to 410 for the applet.
