Re: Games won't load

I think sometimes this happens for everyone, one option is to simply try again later. However I've found things particularly stable using Internet Explorer, running it as admin. I'm not otherwise so fussed on IE, but it seems to do the job for RU. You can also try older versions of Firefox (RU won't work on FF after a certain update, I forget which). Also this was posted recently in a similar thread:

Re: Games won't load

Thanks guys. It appears that this site may not be tolerant of my MiFi device I use on the road. I'm at home right now and everything appears to be working fine.

Re: Games won't load

Just a suggestion, but on the bottom it says default. Change that over to beta, and the games may load for you. They do me when the site acts screwy for me. Beta always works as a good backup.

Re: Games won't load

What it all boils down to are the updates that happen in the background that you are not aware of from time to time. Once your browser updates it tends to alter the state of the ArcadeOx plug-in, To avoid having to turn off your updates for what ever program you use for RU, What I have found to help me ( And has yet to fail me ) 5 years being on this site is to use Mozilla Fire Fox version 40. Once you install that go into your settings in Mozilla and turn your updates slam off! It will forever work in your favor. I use Mozilla as my dedicated browser for RU and I use Edge for everything else. Give it a whirl, It can't hurt. Hope this helps brother!
