How do I install this game? I tried to use web launcher and it downloads a JNLP file or something like that. Then I downloaded the actual file and could not open it. PLease tell me what to do. Thanks...

Try downloading the first zip file in this download page:  http://www.toadwater.com/TWeb/Download.html

And then from then on, always launch it with the web launcher.

Let us know if you have any problems,

Just to make sure, do you have the latest java installed?  Also what Operating system are you using?   

Feel free to drop by in Chat (it's a button at the top) and we can talk in real time about this.

This is terrible advice. Don't listen to Travis, if you do what he said, you will end up with two different versions of TW installed. Don't ever use the zip/download. It's only for those who have webstart disabled at work.

Artaniss, I'm afraid I can't do much with "could not open it". Can you describe the problem in more detail ? Do you get an error message ? What does it say ? What happens when you double click the JNLP file ? Does your computer freeze ? Reboot ? Does it ask a question ? Does nothing at all happen ?

Brique is having the same problem has asked me to help get him back up and running on his laptop.  All the sudden today tw just will not open. He clicks it and the usual logo shows up then disappears and nothing else happens.  I've gone thru uninstalled the program then deleted anything tw related and reinstalled.. Same thing is happening.  Click on the "click here to play" or on the desktop icon and same things happen pops up for about a second then nada.

Could you see if there are any errors in your event log ?

If nothing is to be found in the event logs, you could try following this advice, and copy and paste anything printout out in the console:
