  • downgrading Flash player from 14 to 13

    the following links do require some understanding of computers as they may need to uninstall both the system and browser based flash players.... players that use the following information, so do at their own risk, R2 games is not responsible for any issues

    this is a suggested fix for players dealing with shockwave and flash player crashing and heavy graphics lag issues

    if you have a mac computer....

    If you have windows download the uninstaller

    Download and run the version 13 installer from Player archives
    look for the (Released 7/8/2014) Flash Player (149 MB) its part way down the page the file contains uninstallers for flash 12 and installers for the IE and non IE system and browsers ( players would need to remove the browser based flash as well ).....

    if you are not sure how to uninstall browser based flash player, you can google it or wait until R2 games have resolved the issue with the recent flash player update

    I've just tried it out, and as simple and primitive as the solution is, it works. I just tried it out on Server 131, where I had my problems. Lo-and-behold, I encountered the boss I previously couldn't get to without any difficulty.

    As a thank you, I'll go ahead and showcase the method I used to installing the Flash Player for Windows users, so others know what to do:

    1 - Firstly, you need to go to your Control Panel, and then access the 'Programs and Features' tabs. From there, you should see a list of all of your installed programs on your computer: Games, appliances, and, most importantly, the Flash Player you want to be rid of:

    The one I've highlighted is the (ONLY) one you'll want to be rid of. Select it, right click it and go ahead and uninstall the Flash Player. You'll be asked to close all your web browsers prior to doing so, that's okay, go ahead and close them up and uninstall.

    2 - Next, you download the Flash Player mentioned in Kitwritten's post:, it may take a couple of minutes. You can either Open or Save the files. You can do either, though I opted to just Open it myself.

    3 - After the download, you should have a file in which the contents look like this. The one you want, is the one I've highlighted. That will take you to a wizard which will ultimately install the Flash Player. So go ahead and do so.

    All that's left is to give your Web Browser a few seconds to recognize the Flash Player, and you should be good to go. You don't need to do anything else with it. Similarly, if you get a prompt for an update to the Flash Player, you'll have to decline it until the devs can conjure up a fix for the up to date Flash Player. Otherwise you'll go back to the Flash Player you got rid of, and have to do it all over again.

    Thank you for putting up with me Kitwritten, and thank you for reminding me that this method actually exists... Here's hoping the devs will have a fix in due time.
