Internet and Technical Problems
What are the recommended system requirements?
To have a smooth rummy playing experience at RummyCircle.com we recommend the below mentioned requirements:
Our games are designed to run on any reasonably modern computer without the need to install additional hardware or software. In case you have any doubts or are having trouble playing on RummyCircle, please check if your computer conforms to the minimum configuration below:
- CPU - Pentium 4 and above is recommended.
- RAM - 512MB is recommended.
- Operating System - We support our games on Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7, as well as on Linux. Our games are known to work on Apple Mac computers as well.
- Screen Resolution - 1024x768 is recommended.
- Please use a web browser from our Supported Browsers list.
- Please ensure that your Internet connection conform to the recommendations below.
- Turn on your speakers to listen to Game Sounds.
- Flash Player 9 or greater should be installed on your computer. To download the latest Flash Player, click here.
What browsers do you support now?
Our games are tested on Internet Explorer 7 and later, Mozilla Firefox 3.0 and later and Google Chrome. Please note that some of our users have reported difficulties with the "Google Gears" plugin available for some of our supported browsers, hence we recommend this plugin may be disabled. Please note that:
- For the best gameplay experience, you should disable the Pop-up Blocker in your browser for www.RummyCircle.com.
- The latest version of Adobe Flash Player should be installed for your browser.
What Internet Connection is required?
For the best gaming experience on RummyCircle, you need a fast Internet connection. Your computer should be able to connect and download all game related data from our servers quickly and reliably. We recommend a high-speed broadband connection of 256 Kbps and above, with little or no packet loss and low latency to our servers.
You can determine packet loss and latency by following this procedure:
- On your Windows 2000 or XP computer, click on the "Start" button, and select "Run". Type "cmd" into the resulting window, without the quotes. A new window appears.
- Into this resulting window, type the following as: ping www.google.com -t
- After a few seconds, a summary of the connection statistics from your computer to our servers will be displayed.
- For the best experience, the loss percentage should be 0%.
- Again, for the best experience, the average latency should be lower than 400ms.
Please be aware that the quality of Internet connection for playing multiplayer games online should be much better than that for regular day-to-day Internet activities like browsing, email etc. Even a slight degradation in the connection quality will affect your RummyCircle experience adversely.
In case you face such a problem of degradation of playing experience, we recommend that you try playing again after 15 to 20 minutes.
We also recommend that if you are playing from a cyber cafe or otherwise sharing an Internet connection with others, then please ensure that no more than 4 people are logged in to RummyCircle simultaneously.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE QUALITY OF INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED FOR PLAYING MULTIPLAYER GAMES ONLINE IS HIGHER THAN THAT REQUIRED FOR BROWSING, CHATTING, EMAILING ETC.
What are Firewall and Port requirements?
RummyCircle's games are offered on TCP port 443. Your firewall needs to allow unfiltered access to this port.
