Help with downloadable games

If a downloadable game is an .exe file, just click the link, and choose open. The game will usually be installed among your other programs (otherwise you can choose where you would like to install it during the installation process).

If the game is a .zip or .rar file, choose save, and save it to your pc.
Extract it in a new folder using WinRar for example (if you don't have it, get it from here: http://www.rarlab.com/).
Then click the installation file (in most cases .exe file) or the file that starts the game, and your pc will install it, or launch it respectively.

    Do you have a pop-up blocker on your computer. That may prevent it from coming in. Also, some virus protection/Firewall programs prevent downloads as well. I would check those two things to see if that might be holding you back.

        Game Loading Problems

        All I get is a black rectangle after I download and it says click to play. This is in the escape rooms. Any ideas?

          or Active X:

                Hi Dallas, sorry that it didn't work. I'm at the end of my knowledge and don't know why you can't install it :-(
                You should post in a specific forum and ask there since we are not really experts for such questions here I think.

                    Have you tried to download it again since? If so, can you tell me where you are sending the dwonload, and describe what you see after it happens? I hear you say a box. Do you see at least anything come through other than that? I may be able to walk you through what you need to do but you have to let me know if you have tried all the things I have suggested...or if you understand what I said.

                        Dallas, maybe you would better download it directly from the Macromedia website that I announced in my earlier post. There is an instruction how to do it and it will be directly and automatically tested after installation if it works. If I read the instructions on the Macromedia site, you download first only an installer that you have to locate on your pc, doubleclick it and it will download and install the program then:

                        1. Click the "Download Now" button to begin installing Macromedia Shockwave Player.

                        2. When asked, save the Installer to your desktop.

                        3. When the download is complete, locate the Installer and double-click on it. The Installer will launch and dialog boxes will lead you through the rest of the installation process.

                        4. When the Macromedia Shockwave Player movie begins playing, your installation is successful.

                        It seems to me that you have only downloaded it but not yet installed.

                        So maybe you could try again from here and see if it is successful:

                            Please will someone help! I have been trying to play this game since it was posted, but just can't get it to work! There must be some kind of particular program it uses to load cos I can't get it to work at home, but just tried on the computer at work and its fine. It looks so good too!

                            Please let me know anybody - I would be so grateful!!

                              Have you tried the direct link?

                              Here:
                              http://www.the-n.com/games/hookup/hookup.php

                                Yep - just get a blank screen. I'm using Internet Explorer too. Looked at the games website & this forum and other people seem to be having the same problem.
