Shockwave and Active X
If you see a message prompting you to download the ActiveX Shockwave plug-in you do not have the shockwave player. You must either click the prompt message and choose "Install ActiveX Control" or download Shockwave Player for FREE from here. We recommend installing the FULL version of the player rather than the SLIM version.
When i go to play a game it says "Installing adobe shockwave player" or "Installing compatibility components" yet its not doing anything.
If do not have shockwave when you enter a room Shockwave propmts you to install. A few seconds after the installation starts a new window opens asking you which language you wish to use. Sometimes this window is hidden behind the game screen. Close the game room that you have opened and you will see the new window. You can also see it by clicking it in your toolbar at the bottom of the screen. Once you have chosen your language the installation will continue. You can then re-open your game screen and play as usual.
Internet Explorer users may see a dialog similar to the one above. You should click OK to enable the Shockwave Active X control.
The dialogue is due to a recent update released by Microsoft. This update changes the way in which Internet Explorer handles Web pages that use Shockwave. You need Shockwave to run our game. You simply have to click OK to enable the Shockwave Active X control.
