    Is there a way to get to the forums on the non-Flash version ?

    And are we still able to watch replays on the non-Flash versions ?

    So far I haven't been able to find out how.

    Just to let everyone know, I did reach out to WGT Customer Service and asked about some of the concerns members were having with the non-flash version.  I am waiting to hear back from them on several issues.  I'm confident WGT is aware of the few minor glitches that are concerning people and are working towards making improvements.

    Clicking the 'Free Credits' on the main screen will open a dialogue giving you a button to click to open WGT.com. But you may as well just open WGT.com yourself.
    Make a shortcut to https://www.wgt.com/forums/ and stick it to your desktop or taskbar.
    Easy way to make a desktop shortcut? Have your browser window smaller than fullscreen so you can see at least a little bit of your desktop. Make sure the browser page you want the shortcut to open is the one you are currently on, then just select the entire URL in the address bar and drag it onto your desktop.

    The new version does not yet have any replay capability, and as no information has yet been given out about the useability of our current replays when flash goes, I have suggested that we record our favourite ones with a screen recorder before Dec 29th, just in case they are not playable after then.

    I play some other games online that used to be flash only and they had switched to html5 format last year without making anybody to install new app, can't WGT do the same?

    I have wondered this same thing since this ruckus began.  I have also written to Customer Support, several times, with not one getting a response aside from the canned "Thanks for the input, we will get back with you..;...blah blah..."

    So many other threads and questions in odd places about this or that!  If I could even get one game fully loaded so I can see what is working or not.  I spend hours trying to see if my issues have been brought up. 

    Ideally for me would be one WGT agent (by that I mean a Scott Hope or WGTChampion type guy) to guide me to setting this thing up, one on one.  I'm okay with doing a remote access session or two!  I'm an older disabled guy that has lost most of his mental acuity, helped along with crappy eyesight.

    Joel, forgive me for asking, but what issues do you currently have?

    Ah, you are forgiven, Scott, thanks for asking!  Here is a rundown with some of the screen shots I have sent to Support. HP 15-daxxx  laptop w/Win10

    In October I downloaded the Launcher, and proceeded to get my settings where they looked okay.  Try to load a game (it didn't seem to matter what kind) and it usually ended up with a crash error message something like this: (The last couple are from this morning.)
