Default Games not working


Is there something going on with the games? I can press "play" but that's about it. The games don't load.



I do have the latest version of shockwave.

What browser and version are you using? If you try another browser does that help?

Could you try downloading/installing Shockwave again, just to make sure it is properly installed: (http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/)

I'm using Firefox 52. I just tried IE and it sort of works. It loads, but then gets stuck. Chrome doesn't appear to support Shockwave anymore.

I'll try reinstalling Shockwave and see what happens.

Update: Shockwave itself installed a new version on March 14th. I reinstalled it, but it's the same version so it didn't make any difference. That new version seems to be what's causing the problems.

Just tried on my computer that's running Vista. It did work (took forever) and it has a way older version of Shockwave, but a relatively recent version of Firefox.

Dana, are you able to load games?

I've seen a few instances where members have had trouble loading the games. We are talking with the game developers about the possibility of upgrading them and possibly moving them away from using shockwave.

I have not been able to play any of the games this week. I am using Firefox 52.0.1. And, I do have the latest version of Shockwave Flash.

Newbie777,

I am sorry you are running into an issue. Trying another browser may help.

It's an issue with the latest shockwave security update from Adobe. I've reported the bug to Adobe. One option is to find an earlier version of Shockwave Flash. The current version is 25.0.0.127.

IE works for a minute or so, then hangs. Chrome doesn't support Shockwave any longer.

Also, if you have an older computer running Vista, that should work too.

Icefyre posted above about an issue with a shockwave security update. Perhaps the same solution would work for you?
