Wanting to play but can't?

Post by Runite »

If you're reading this, then you can't play the game. Not for a lack of trying though, either you're stuck perpetually loading, you get a white screen or the game freezes up.

There are two possible solutions to this!
There could be more out there that I'm just unaware of.

1.) Internet Explorer.

If IE doesn't work, As it white screened on me just minutes after getting into the game. Below is the method I use to play to this very day.

2.) This option requires Google Chrome and the IE Tab Extension.

Link - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... d?hl=en-US
For anyone that doesn't wish to click the link. I will add an attachment showing where to get the extension.

I hope this helps you as it did me, I spent a lot of time looking for a solution after FireFox stopped working.

I think it might be server sided as I can't load into World 1 either. However, I can load up perfectly fine in World 2.

The Java Browser plugin is required to play.
All browsers supported Java at one time.
But over time they have removed support.
The only browser that I know of that still works on Windows is Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer.
Windows 10 still has Explorer installed, but you have to search for it on your computer to find it.
You have to search because Windows currently defaults to the EDGE browser.
To find the browser app Internet Explorer use the search bar at the bottom lower left corner of the screen.
Type in internet explorer in the search bar and it will show up as an app on your computer.

Remember to install the free plugin Java after you have started Internet Explorer.
https://www.java.com/en/download/

After you have installed Java, you can play.

PS - I believe you can still play on MAC's using the safari browser as well.
