Game indexes/Alan Hensel's Life applet
This index tracks what versions of the Java applet for Conway's Game of Life, created by Alan Hensel, have been archived and which have not.
As there appears to be no changelog and version numbers were announced directly on the Anout page, only three versions are known to exist.

|Green||Found, awaiting addition to Flashpoint|
|Cyan||Found, but not currently submitted|
|Blue||Found, but modified|
|Red||Not found, confirmed to have existed|

|v0.41c||1999-01-22||About||The original source code is archived, however LifeCoordinate.java was missing.|
The source code was released alongside presumably each version of the applet. This has been archived for both v0.41c and v0.41d, however in the case of v0.41c LifeCoordinate.java was missing. In the source code download provided below, this has been replaced with the LifeCoordinate.java form v0.41d, with the internal comments modified to state this. It is not known if compilation of the applet from this code would provide a bit-perfectly identical applet to the original v0.41c.
Help with compiling this source code would be appreciated, as there have likely been many changes to Java in the last 20 years to deprecate the compilation of applets due to their loss of support, as well as possible changes to Java itself in the meantime which may produce different results in the compiled code.
