    Recent changes in many browsers has Flash set to not allowed by default. You as the user need to go in to settings and set an exception for FoE in your browser to allow flash to run on the site.
    follow this for Icedragon and FF https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/enabling-flash-player-firefox.html
    for chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784?co=GENIE.Platform=Desktop&hl=en


    I had the same issue earlier this week. Opera changed its permission from default allowed to not-allowed for flash player. You need to go into your opera settings and set up an exception for FoE

    Use the wilcard [*.]forgeofempires.com it will work fine after that.

    I have windows 10 as well. I went with a chrome browser after trying many. I had problems with my flash at first too. I set my flash to ask, once it was oked on forge of empires it has never asked again. I have no problems at all.

    I have been using Opera for years. I can still use my Opera browser for B and C world, just not A. That's NOT a settings issue; that is a FOE did something different or changed something issue.

    How about someone addressing this? I have the EXACT same issue. I can log into B and C but NOT into A.

    a buddy of mine had the same situation with crome never working and now all of a sudden it does. we think that crome's last update changed things for our computers somehow so you might try it again. maybe it could work for you now too

    It's now the middle of September so I guess first half of 2018 didn't happen... :(

    I'm stuck with Flash not loading and Chrome makes it hard to enable Flash because it is such a piece of crap.

    I'm having this problem as well. I can login and play on one world and everything works fine. When I switch to another world it tells me flash isn't installed. This is using a fresh install of opera. I switched to opera because firefox just plain quit loading any world earlier.

    it's got nothing to do with FoE. It's specifically the way the browsers handle Flash



    For Chrome Users

    Step (1)
    Type in the following to your URL bar:
    chrome://flags/#enable-ephemeral-flash-permission

    Step (2): set the ephemeral flash permissions to disabled and save the settings

    Firstly, Innogames is up to date and have already moved over to HTML5, but if I remember correctly, they will keep running the Flash version until it's officially killed off on 31 Dec 2020 or at the very least once HTML5 is running 100% smoothly.

    Unfortunately they do not have control over your system and cannot update all the software on your system for you. Some things you'll need to do yourself.
    Do some research and find out why YOUR Flash is not updating or catch up with the times and change your game to HTML5.

    I am the last person to go on the attack and usually sympathetic to others, but your immediate approach was an attack on others who have no control over your situation with pure assumptions, and I'm also gonna assume, NO prior investigation.

    The very least you can do is log a ticket or ask questions before waving your sword around!?
