    Can't start my 1st game

    I joined the site yesterday, and joined an open game: https://www.majorcommand.com/games/501014/ But I still can't "begin turn".

    Maybe it has to do with the fact that I confirmed my email after joining the game?

    I have very good internet connection, and use Chrome browser.

    Any help on this would be appreciated!

    To clarify: I did look at the video tutorial on how to play a game, but when I clic on "begin turn" at link above, nothing happens, it won't let me go to deploy my troops.

    Hi CheleNica, welcome to MajorCommand!

    The site's games run using Flash, so you will have to enable it. In Chrome, it is a quick process (screenshots by clicking link below).

    CLICK HERE FOR SCREENSHOTS

    1) Type into your browser's address bar the following:
    chrome://settings/content/flash

    2a) Scroll down to "Flash" and click there.
    2b) In the new window, it'll likely say "Block sites from using Flash (recommended)" ...toggle the little button to the right of it, and it'll then say "Ask first"

    3) Go to the game page. Once there, to the left of the address is a little lock. Click on the lock, there will be a dropdown menu. From the menu, click "Flash" and select "Allow".

    4) Refresh the page and you're all set!


    FYI, like ChaCha, I use Internet Explorer for MajCom now (it's the only site I use it for lol), no extra steps. But once you follow the above, you should be all set!

    Thanks Brian for the welcome and the suggestions!

    I followed your instructions, and Chrome still won't let me start the game. I tried 3 other browsers (mozilla, firefox and safari) without success. I also triedd enabling the plugin, as that seemed to be the issue even when enabling flash for this site, and couldn't get that.

    I refuse to download and use IE, even if it's just for this game, so I will unfortunately have to give up playing on this site for now. I may come back later this year, but I can't find a solution at this time.

    If you use Mozilla Firefox to play your game you will see next to the major command url on the left side a lego-like symbol that will say manage plug in (that's flash player). Once flash is allowed the stars load after a minute and you will be able to begin your turn.

    I asked this question in private support when I started playing, here is the reply:

    If you mean you can't load the maps, i.e. the loading stops at 2 stars, you have to enable flash in the browser. Flash is usually disabled automatically these days, you either have to enable it in the browser's settings, or click the lock icon (in Chrome) or the lego icon (in Firefox) next to the address bar. Good luck!

    If your using a smart phone they won't use flash without purchasing a special browser.
