Help with debugging

After downloading the files from teachers note for this challenge, i'm finding that it won't let me run the program in the state it already is. Is there any reason for this Craig Dennis

Also the files at the side are not coloured as they were in the Karaoke files.

It said something about having to configure the main class as well and after doing that the console now reads:

Connected to the target VM, address: '', transport: 'socket' Usage: appletviewer <options> url(s)

where <options> include: -debug Start the applet viewer in the Java debugger -encoding <encoding> Specify character encoding used by HTML files -J<runtime flag> Pass argument to the java interpreter

The -J option is non-standard and subject to change without notice. Disconnected from the target VM, address: '', transport: 'socket'

Process finished with exit code 0

Any help would be appreciated as I am really stuck on what to try next.

2.  The user is then prompted for each word that has been double underscored.

   a. The answer is checked to see if it is contained in the censored words.
      User is continually prompted until they enter a valid word

3.  The user is presented with the completed story
