This game requires ArcadeOX to play.?

Sorry i am not tech savvy by any means but I really like this site and want to play! I just signed up today and played one of my old favorite games from the 80's. I just logged back it and not I cannot play any game, it shows "This game requires ArcadeOX to play" and i hit the download button, can someone show me step by step on what to from there? I downloaded it to my computer, what should i open it with?

I think I may have figured it out on my own, I opened it with internet explorer and it solved my problem. I was using Google Chrome and it would not work

Once the Arcadeox Plugin is downloaded you may open any game to play from the Game Menu as you please. The Plugin Activates on its own when starting a game.

Welcome to the site

There is no real problem just press F4 to reset / then press enter when the "factory settings restored" message appears.

The window will then reset and the game will load and be playable.

Most if not all Williams coin op game work this way for some reason.

Have fun.

From what I've heard Chrome doesn't work well with the games on RU. It should work in FireFox if you wanna avoid IE.

Probably, hit the little FN key before you hit F5, usually around the bottom left of the keyboard. FN enables the F keys.

Re: This game requires ArcadeOX to play.?

F4 is reset. F5 is flip power switch.

As JosephJo said, Williams games (and some others) require F4 to get past the "factory settings restored" screen.
