Various games not working
As of about a week ago I'm continually encountering games that won't load. Some examples:
Nordic/Tobet/Triobet - if I try to load any game it gets to 89% then hangs forever.
Betsson - if I try to load a scratcard it simply hangs at 0%
JJ - if I try to load any game it hangs indefinitely
The odd thing is that this happens regardless of what PC I try (have tried 3 different ones), regardless of OS (tried XP & Vista), regardless of browser (tried all the usual suspects) & regardless of BB feed (NTL & BT).
Starting to really p*ss me off now. Any ideas or anyone else getting the same probs with any of these games?
Hadt the same with some net ent casinos recently, a reload or two usually fixes the issue though (or I just go play another game)
I'm going to repost something I posted a few weeks ago, because I think there's a pretty good chance that this is the answer to at least some of your issues. Certainly, I had the same problem as Fella with Jackpotjoy, and the below was the solution...
I experienced the same issue and tracked it to the Flash Settings Manager.
1. Go to the Flash Settings Manager - hxxp://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html
2. Change the Global Storage Setting to 100k
3. Tick 'Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer'
4. You may also have to go to the 'Website Storage Settings' tab and manually allow 100k to the Jackpotjoy site (and any others you are experiencing an issue with)
Hope that helps!
Doh! That's what comes from copying an earlier post. Link fixed hopefully...
So this is something to do with iesnare then? My understanding was that iesnare requires the settings you've described in order to work?
If that's correct, it would appear iesnare is now being deployed in a more aggressive way, i.e. actually stopping games from running if iesnare cannot run?
(not totally certain on this but that' how it looks)?
Well, I don't think it's an iesnare issue as such... It's more of a Flash issue and iesnare works through Flash, so it looks like it's related.
I'll refer to Jackpotjoy as an example. As part of my protection against iesnare, I have altered my Hosts file to ensure that iesnare can't 'report back' from my PC. That should be enough to protect me from iesnare, but in a belt and braces approach I have also changed my Flash settings through the link above so that no site can store anything on my PC.
Now that's fine, but some sites won't work unless they can store a bit of data on your PC. The new Jackpotjoy site appears to be one of them. That doesn't mean that Jackpotjoy uses iesnare or wants to store anything nasty on your PC (although they might do I suppose), it simply means that the steps I'd taken to protect myself against iesnare had stopped the new JJ site from working for me. A tweak to my Flash settings and all is working again...
If the embedded version of the game doesn't work try the fullscreen button. Sometimes works.
Lickle update: Tried adjusting the Flash storage settings & that does indeed fix the issue at Nordicbet & Betsson (although still can't load anything at JackpotJoy even if fullscreen).
Now have to decide whether to leave the settings like that or not (am decidedly against allowing stuff like that on my PCs).
