Hello guys, I used to play the old Warlight and I wanted to come back, but I cannot even get to "Multiplayer games". It literally says "page causes your browser to load slow" and whole PC just slows down and it take like 2 minutes to get back to normal state hwere I can use my PC. What is going on, how do I fix this ? I tried it on Opera, Chrome and Firefox with the same results.

Click on your name then click on Switch to Flash.

Can you give your PC specs?
https://www.warzone.com/ChangeUnityWebGL is another way to deselect Unity and move to Flash.

OK, switching to flash worked. But why doesn´t the game itself advise me to do that ? If I haven´t played the game before, I wouldn´t bother asking on forum...Anyways, thanks guys xD

Flash is a dying platform and won't be supported anymore for all browsers in a few months time. This is also the reason the Unity version started in the first place

Flash is ending sometime in 2020 : https://redmondmag.com/articles/2017/07/25/adobe-ending-flash-support.aspx

The current free version of Unity client is problematic for reasons mentioned above. New users should have choice between clients right from the start. I can imagine that many people can be discouraged by slowness of the default client. This oversight don't do anything good to Fizzer.

You're right it's a big problem.

However I don't think giving users a choice right off the bat is a good solution either. If you ask a first-time player if they want Flash or Unity they'd just be confused, as they don't have the context needed to make this decision.

It defaults to Unity since Unity, while it's slow, it at least works on all major browsers. Flash, on the other hand, is blocked by all major browsers by default now, and a first-time player would have to go through a bunch of complicated steps to unblock it. All non-technical people will fail and be turned away by this. So it defaults to Unity.

I'm working on a better solution to this.
