Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

The game just won't open

The game just doesn't start up- no loading screen, no menu, nothing, just a black screen.

Re: The game just won't open

When did this first start happening?

Edit: Also how do you play the game? Downloadable client or browser (if so what browser, and what version of the website)?

Re: The game just won't open

This also happened for me sometimes, it's usually something with the internet or the fact that the game just updated, but idk if it's the same for you, the game didn't update so that can't be it.

Re: The game just won't open

Seems like the latest update of Flash Player has caused something to break, we're currently looking into how to fix it.

This means that EE is broken on Firefox and possibly other browsers without an inbuilt flash player, as well as the .swf (and possibly exe) clients using Flash Player 32.0.0.101. For now you can always try playing on Chrome or Edge, or opening the downloadable clients with an old version of Flash.

Sorry for the inconvenience, we will try and fix the issue as soon as we can.

What browsers did you try?
Chrome, Edge, and IE all have special versions of Flash built in, so it could possibly be different for them.

I've tried running the EE .swf with the latest version of Flash Player outside of my browser and it doesn't seem to work either, which would suggest that the problem stems from the latest update, although I guess its possible that I'm just doing something wrong / have some other problem and it is just Firefox //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/tongue

Re: The game just won't open

I can run the game fine with the latest version of the projector, for both Linux and Windows.

Just wondering, how do you get EE to run using the projector?

I'm just using the normal Windows 'open with' popup and it works perfectly with an older version I was using (flashplayer 24 standalone), but doesn't seem to work with the latest one (flashplayer 32 standalone)

Re: The game just won't open

So better question, should I just use the downloadable executable, or is it broke there too?

I can't seem to get it to work, but other people seem to be saying they've been able to, so I guess you can try that, otherwise just use another browser (e.g. Chrome, Edge, etc.)

Experiment complete, it did work for me.
Though I do not know what problem you could be having with it...

I tried Firefox and those three browsers you've just told

Re: The game just won't open

IE works for me, clients as well. Haven't tried Edge but might will work too.
