CLM runs on Flash, a software that helps us play the game.
Of course, if you haven’t updated Flash in a while (more than a month), make sure to have your flash player up to date. But nowadays, that is almost never the case. 🙂
For some time now, major browsers have been mistreating Flash because it will disappear at the end of next year as Adobe announced it will stop distributing and updating it.
So, browsers are making it harder to run Flash content — they ask for Flash updates even though it’s updated, they ask for permission even though you gave it already, they say Flash is not installed although it is, and so on…
But don’t worry, CLM will still be here after Flash is gone, as we will transition to HTML5 (no more Flash and no more annoying popups), and the job is halfway done already thanks to the New Engine 🙂 We have plans for the game for years to come.
Here’s how to “Allow” Flash Player in CLM.
When you see this message in the game loading screen, click on “Allow Flash Player” to continue.
Don’t see the “Allow” pop-up dialogue for Flash? Don’t worry! Just click on the puzzle icon at the top-right corner of your address bar to enable the “Allow” pop-up. Once done, click on the “Manage” button in the pop-up.
After you click “Manage”, Chrome will open the “Settings” page in a new tab. On the “Settings” page, make sure you toggle the switch for the “Ask first” option from the color Grey to Blue.
Once done, go back to the game page and click on the green “Allow Flash Player” button above the pig.
After you’re done, you should see the Flash pop-up with the “Allow” option at the top-left corner of your screen. Click on “Allow” and your game should load.
If you’re still having issues in seeing the Flash pop-up in the top-left corner, here are a few more steps that will surely work!
Alternative way to “Allow” Flash Player in Chrome for CLM.
When you see this message on the game loading screen, locate and click on the lock icon (or “i”) in the top-left corner of your address bar in Chrome.
In the drop-down menu, you’ll see a “Flash” option with another drop-down option to its right. Change the “Block” option to “Allow”.
Reload your browser to continue.
If you don’t want to have any further issues with Flash, you could try switching to Firefox because it only asks for Flash permissions once, not every time after you close your window like Chrome.
