Flash Helper Tool

Postby Viking Sam » Wed Sep 30, 2020 10:58 am

Hey YoFans!

We hope you are enjoying your Wednesday so far!

We wanted to let you all know about a change that is going live, which may impact those of you that use the Flash Helper tool: we have removed the Flash Helper option from our login flow, as it will become obsolete in the near future.

Q. Will the YoWorld Flash Helper still be useful?

A. Some time in October, Google Chrome will prevent plugins like the YoWorld Flash Helper from enabling Flash in the browser automatically. This means that you will need to allow/enable Flash at login during the stretch of time between when Chrome disables these plugins and when the HTML5 conversion is complete.

After that, no Flash means no Flash Helper is required.

Q. Will I still be able to play on the YoWorld Desktop App and Game Room?

A. Yes!

Q: How do I enable Flash?

A: Below you will find screenshots of the step by step process required to enable flash without the Flash Helper tool

Q: I'm not seeing the popup! What can I do?

A: The YoWorld desktop app is available for those that are experiencing difficulties with enabling flash

Thank you for letting us know about this. I use a Mac Book Pro and the Yo browser you have provided to us. As far as "coming along", goes, how could we not. Most of us have been in this for the long haul. :heart:

Flash is dangerous which is why it is being discontinued. But, to play YoWorld, you'll need flash. If you can't disable the setting in your antivirus, you might try using the desktop app. Maybe your av will allow that. Good luck...

I think I got the desktop app but then it asked me to allow flash today, so then I don't have it? If so, how do I get it?

Allow flash doesn't mean you don't have flash, it's just something you'll have to do each time you want to play YoWorld from now until the end of the year unless you use the desktop app instead of your browser. But if for some reason you do need to download flash, you can find it here:

https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

If you'd like to try the desktop app:

Windows:

https://downloads.bigvikinggames.com/YoWorld.exe

Mac:

https://downloads.bigvikinggames.com/YoWorld.dmg

Good luck!

It sounds like you are installing the download over and over. You only need it once. Then it will create a shortcut for YoWorld with the red Y and you click that. Then you have to login to facebook the first time but each time after that it'll take you right in. Using the BVG desktop app will give you some coins and yocash as a reward and some small prizes too. And you don't have to mess with giving authority to launch flash each time either which is a bonus. Anyway, good luck...

I don't know what to do... we have 2 people who play Yo on the same computer. One has the desktop app. The other plays through FB and haven't had a problem until today. When the 2nd player (Rand) goes to open Yo it says to allow flash. She does. then it says to "allow" but there is no box for that, so she clicks on the box where it says so she clicks the other option... well... we can't download 2 desktop apps. So, since I already have the desktop app, what is Rand to do? She can't play! I didn't word that very well I"m not sure how to word it better.... what it boils down to is Rand cannot play without the app and the computer won't allow 2 apps.

The first click is to bring up a pop up box that says allow. If you click that, you should be in. It's towards the upper left and you may be missing it.

But, if that doesn't work for some reason, you can both still use the one app if you logout and Rand logs into facebook each time. A bit of a hassle, but it'll work for sure.

Good luck!
