    hpurey:

    Updated Chrome on my work PC (windows 7) and no issues at all.   But at home, did Windows update (Windows 10) and updated Chrome and got the flickering. Turned off hardware acceleration and flickering stopped but game play was way too choppy to play.  

     

    Reinstalled the Comodo Dragon browser and game plays almost perfectly.  Starting to wonder if it's an issue for Windows 10.  I may revert my home computer to Windows 7.  

    I got an Adobe update on 3/12. I clear everything.

    Well, that didn't really make you LOL, huh?

    Did you install a Chrome update?  I use Chrome for everything but refused the last update and I have not seen any issues (yet).  I'll have to see if I can play with my fingers crossed!

    Chrome Canary was the answer for me ( : after trying many other suggestions over the last few days ) : with no success 

    Not only did the blinking stop but the meter is super smooth  ( :

    I recommend it for anyone with windows 10

    This is a nightmare. Find it very frustrating and have barely played since it started. 

    Hopefully WGT will provide a fix. Nothing else I've encountered recently has this problem.

    To be clear this is a Chrome issue and not a WGT issue. Chrome will need to provide an update to fix the issue. 

    I would recommend finding a different browser to use in the short term.

    Have you read the previous replies in this thread?  There are a few other threads in the forums about this, as well.

    This can be a problem with a Chrome update and/or a problem with the latest Flash update.  Fixes and workarounds are provided in the several threads about this.
