Try the following.

1) Click Start>Run
2) Type in the Run box %Temp% and click OK
3) In the folder that comes up find the folder called "Low"
4) In the "Low" Folder find the "Arcadeox" folder and delete it.
5) Try again.

I'm NOT using a "pause" when I play these games,

I'm NOT using a "pause" when I play these games even though its indicated on the placement chart. Why am I seeing a pause was used?

I haven't watched a playback, but, it is indicated that I paused in the score rankings. I don't use pause.I would piss in a bucket first before I use pause.

Re: cant play even on internet explorer anymore

Tim, I've seen RU pick up pauses for doing things like clicking & dragging the window, not just pressing "P". Any chance that could have happened, or something to change focus?

Re: cant play even on internet explorer anymore

Clicking the title bar pauses the game.

Go to the bottom left of this page, use the dropdown menu and change the style from default to beta. That will disable the pause button entirely.

Re: cant play even on internet explorer anymore

Yes.

Rebooting will probably work. If not or if you don't want to reboot.

Open the Windows Start menu. Click Run.
That opens the run prompt. Paste the following there and then press enter.
%temp%\Low\arcadeox
Delete the zip files in that folder.

Then try to play a game. Doing that will force it to redownload and should bypass any problems you are having.

Re: cant play even on internet explorer anymore

Games will not load on Internet Explorer for me. I tried %Temp%, but the folder was already empty. I then deleted the folder. I still can't play anything.

I really haven't been able to use this website since I got a new computer a few months ago.

Are you sure you are not using MS Edge? It's disguised to look like IE.
