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.

    It sounds like you might need to update your flash 8 needed for this game.

    Here is the link:

    Try installing this, then restart your computer, and see if that helps.

      Yes, this is also my only idea and I guess that this will help.

        Thanks for your help both of you. I'm at work at the moment, so will have a go later when at home and let you guys know! I'm not very technically minded so I didn't have a clue what to do!

          Could you check here what version of Flash Player you have right now? Just to make sure that the installation is okay.

              That's really strange because it should work with this. Have you restarted your pc? And have you tried to empty the cache of your Internet Explorer and try again? I got no idea right now what else could help.

                  Go to options, then look at the general part and click "clear history".

                      Hmmm. And what version of Internet Explorer do you use? Is maybe this one an older version? I use version 6.

                        Yep, mine is version 6 too

                        I cant seem to play any of the other games on the n.com website either - could there be some sort of conflict between my computer? I know so many other people have had the same problems with not getting it to load

                          I'm running out of ideas.
                          Try to refresh the page (click the two arrows to the left of the house symbol) and maybe wait a couple of minutes. Do you use ADSL? If so, can you see if the game is loading?

                              What kind of connection do you use: dial-up or do you have a quick connection (ADSL)?
