    Some browsers no longer support flash, The latest version of Vivaldi is one of them. Even with the settings set to allow flash on the pages that are flash dependent the puzzle piece where you could enable flash says this plugin is not supported.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I have already run into it with Firefox.  Currently using for main page and forums Torch version 65.0.0.1613 (32 bit)  for a number of places and it runs flash content just fine.

    I believe that WGT changed something a short while back.  I had not updated neither flash nor Firefox, but all of a sudden I was having to re-enable flash on every page.  Already had Torch installed, started using it and it worked fine.  Every once in a while I have to tell it to run flash but normally not.

    It appears that somehow flash was uninstalled. I reinstalled flash and Vivaldi once again allows and runs flash.

    Cool... glad it worked out for you J.

    I have to ask, and this goes for everyone reading...

    Would it not simply be easier to download PCEA and rid yourself of the hassles of Flash?

     

    Just asking

    Not if you don't have any issues with Flash.  :-)

    Yes, if you don't have any issues with being force fed to play mobile.

    I am afraid that as the days go by, it will be just the tip of the iceberg for many. As more and more players begin to have difficulty running Flash, the Forums will become flooded with complaints that they cannot play.

    I can only imagine how many players will complain about losing their CDP when D day arrives.

    As someone mentioned recently, there are A LOT of players that do not even know about these Forums. Which leads me to believe they are completely unaware of the demise of Flash. Hate to say it, but they are in for a rude awakening when the time comes.

    For the record, I truly enjoy playing the flash version. I simply do not want to have to jump through hoops to play. I am with the many, that as long as I can play flash I will. But I have also been playing PCEA so it will not be a complete shock to me IF the option to play flash becomes too difficult.

    And honestly, PCEA is not as bad as so many are making it out to be. Yes, it is definitely different. It does take some getting used too.

    Okay, I'm rambling now.

    Carry on

     

    LOL

    The tip of what iceberg?  The thread was opened by someone saying they couldn't run flash on a particular browser, just over an hour later he said he could.
