Default Pearl users I need your help!

Please Login to Remove!

I need serious help here, I am hoping there are either some simple browser settings I can change, or a fancy browser I can download that will remedy this problem I am having.

Ok, I can get to the webpage I am trying to (Travian - Browser Game - Romans, Gauls, & Teutons) and even to the server I want and log in and everything (s3.travian.us/dorf1.php)

BUT when I get there, a whole ton of the things I need to be able to click on don't show up at all and all the icons are in a straight line on top of each other which makes the game very impossible to play. Anyone have any experience with this and can help me out?

I have both opera mini and the regular pearl browser (neither work)
blackberry pearl 8100 on t-mobile

I would appreciate any tips on surfing the net with these as I don't have much experience so anything you can help me with would be great!

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums,
Both the OEM Browser and Opera Mini have limitations. Likely you've hit them. It probably won't work.

I would figure if people are surfing myspace on these things then a little internet game would be cake.

Not graphic intensive at all, I just know I am doing something wrong but I don't know what. I will continue to hope for help

My freind, no need for the language. Have you tried surfing myspace with it? MySpace gives the BB much trouble.

Opera Mini kind of works but I can't click ANYTHING I need and half the things don't even show up at all.

It's not supported. The BB doesn't support streaming video. I think tinytube is about all that works. Good luck.

There is streaming video? I never saw any video on there at all

Sad that something I don't see or use can make it unusable!

Well to be honest I know nothing of the BB world or its browsers really, and you all will be much smarter about it than I. So that said I don't think it will end up working, but hey at least I tried right?

Although I read something about a quicktime application of some sort, and another program that were in the works that offered streaming audio and video, maybe I'll hope for that.

Would a software update be able to fix this in the future maybe?

Perhaps. And a network much faster than EDGE.
