Adobe Flash Player message problem

In IE the Triple Yahtzz game page keeps telling me “To play games on Kongregate, you must have Javascript enabled and be using a current version of Adobe’s Flash Player.” I have done that ~ twice, refreshed, restarted and the game still will not load. What shall I do?

Which version of IE are you using? Is it fully up to date?

Does it do this from other web browsers besides IE9?

no. it works in firefox

Sounds like it could be an IE9 problem then. Not entirely sure why Adobe/Java isn’t working on it, but I would recommend using Firefox for gaming.

Had the same problem just now, every page said the flash plugin is missing, and i thought, wtf? Everything worked just until now. And then i went to chrome://plugins and it turned out that the plugin was really missing somehow. Well, there were two plugins: pepperflash, which was disabled in the very beginning, and also normal flash, which has gone somehow. So i redownloaded it from adobe site and now everything works. Dunno what to think.

I have re-downloaded Adobe Flash twice and still get the error message instead of the game. The version associated with the Adobe download button on this site is an older version. I downloaded the newest version and still nothing. Guess I’ll stay with Firefox.

Same here, my javascript is enabled, you can enable javascript by searching about:config in the search bar above. I have downloaded Adobe’s flash player, the latest version… And I am using firefox, yet the error keeps popping up.

Both javascript and flash-tests are executed locally on your computer, which means it’s your computer that thinks while you’re on kong that you either don’t have one or the other installed or enabled. I’d check if you actually have both enabled specifically for the kong website. Having something installed and having it enabled are two different things. Another thing you could check are your extensions and if they might be blocking something that’s required on kong.

The OP (who was using IE9) posted over 2 years ago. I don’t think that user needs help anymore. This thread was recently bumped by Strategist69. He is using Firefox (not IE).

Tetsuo_Shima has some good suggestions (like disabling any and all extensions except Flash). If Strategist69 can post a screen shot showing the error (make sure to be scrolled all the way up so that we can see the profile bar, and have the browser window large enough to see below the game area) there is sometimes a clue there that can explain why you are getting the message. Make sure you disable those extensions first.

Getting the same problem in Chrome as of this evening. It was working fine this afternoon, and to my knowledge nothing changed on my end since then. Flash Player was already up to date, but reinstalled it and disabled other plugins just to be sure — no dice.

It goes away if I re-enable Pepper Flash, but that has the downsides of 1) being an unusable laggy mess and 2) not retaining my save files.

Other Flash sites like Youtube and Newgrounds work fine.

In case of Pykrete: if you are not using ‘pepper flash’ (which operates on the new and improved PPAPI and is integrated by default in chrome), that means you’re using the old NPAPI flash. NPAPI has been blocked by default by chromium, in 6 months support will be completely removed. You can temporarily re-enable it by following these instructions. In the mean while, you may want to consider finding alternatives (such as different browser/use PPAPI anyway even though for some reason you dislike it/copy your flash saves to the desired location/…) so you have an option to continue enjoying your preferred games come october.

As a side note, if you’re using chrome, you won’t be using flash on youtube, they’ve long since converted everything to html5 for supporting browsers. I have no explanation why npapi flash on newgrounds would work, in theory it shouldn’t either.

That’s what I needed, thanks.

I take issue with PPAPI being “new and improved”. I sympathize with the code complexity issues they’ve been citing, but Pepper is such a disastrous performance hit that I can’t use it (just to see if it was as bad as I remembered, I opened an idle game and it immediately tanked to 4 fps before anything even happened). If I can’t force NPAPI through similar means after October I’ll have to move to MemoryLeakFox if I want to play much of anything at all. :(
