Topic: Technical Support / Loading BubbleBox Games

Over the past few days I have encountered two games (Cave Dudes and Portal Pirate) that simply will not load. I either get a black screen, or a BubbleBox loading screen that shows no progress. I have tried both FireFox and IE (updated versions of both, as well as flash, etc. I’ve even disabled all plug-ins). There are comments on the games so they seem to be working. Any ideas on how to fix this?

You don’t HAVE to play from Kong… you could always go to the BGO website and run from there. You can make your own name and password that way.

Jumping on the “I like KongTube because of the syllabic replication, but I like Kongretube better because of the flow” boat. So, yeah. Kongretube.

Topic: Technical Support / games wont load

After the upgrade I had problems, and then I fixed them via the Adobe stand-alone uninstaller and reinstalling the newest Flash. It all worked fine up until today. I’m back to the blank chat and game screen in both IE and FF.

Did this happen to anyone else?

EDIT: Apparently it has decided to work occasionally now. :sigh: Better than nothing I guess.

Works now AFTER I used Adobe’s manual uninstaller and reinstalled Flash. Kong WAS unusable (games & chat) before I did this.

Oops. Not fully functional. Just tried IE (newest; which I had done before as well as an alternative to Firefox) but it still doesn’t work with the new Flash. I’ll see what I can figure out.

Okay, on another computer, I tried to log into Kong (not my main computer, my main computer’s PSU just died a few hours ago), and got the blank screen that some others are complaining about…here’s how I fixed it:

I checked out to make sure I have the newest version of Firefox…check.
I checked out to make sure I have the newest version of Flash…bingo – I did not. I installed this, closed my browser, refreshed the pages with a forced refresh (to force it to not load from cache), and voila, it fixed it for me. Seems that the new chat relies on the newest (or newer) version of Flash to work.

Also note, if you are running version 8 or 9, you’ll probably have to do a Google search to find the tool to remove ALL parts of Flash before installing the newer version. Somewhere along the lines (I had to do this at work to all the machines there) Adobe when they bought Flash screwed up a routine to upgrade all versions old components, and it left behind some pieces that would say you were using a new version, when in fact, you weren’t always…not sure exactly what it was, but the program removed it completely from your machine, and allowed you to install a new version from scratch.

Edit: Removal tool from Adobe to remove Flash BEFORE installing a newer version:

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?…

Hope this helps out others. First download the removal tool, run it, and then install the newest version of flash. You should then be able to close/reopen your browser, and flush cache and have it work.

This worked for me. I guess my previous flash installations were lingering in the system somewhere. Props to you, and thanks.

Just stopping by to report in.

I’ve tried Flash 9 (several versions) and 10. Also both IE7 and Firefox3. With Flash 10 and Firefox my chat loaded, but no games. With IE, I got a really distorted chat window. Flash 9 + Firefox leaves me with not games and no chat. Games run fine with all configurations on other sites. I have also opened the ports, cleared cache and privacy settings (why clearing the private stuff is even a possible solution I don’t know, but I tried anyway on another threads advice), reinstalled my browsers, and shut down my firewall. I really have tried it all to the best of my knowledge. No progress. Guess I’m out of commission for a while.
