Basically, the internet provider for the hotel I'm staying won't let me run Steam, so I can't play Spiral Knights through there. I've been trying to run it through Kongregate, but every time I try to launch the game, I get this error:

I'm using Chrome and I have Java fully updated, as well as Shockwave Flash, so I'm at a loss as to what I'm missing. Can anyone help me out?

does the Java icon show up in your taskbar when you try to run the game? – user9983 Jan 21 '12 at 2:59
As far as I know it only takes Java, but also be aware that if you play it on Kong you can't access your Steam character. – Ullallulloo Jan 21 '12 at 3:05

First, if you are getting this notification:

Click it.

If not, try following these instructions for the Chrome Java plugin. Uninstalling/Reinstalling sometimes mysteriously fixes things.

The instructions are what got it for me. Thanks, Origami. – Fluttershy Jan 21 '12 at 3:13
