IntroductionEdit

Chrome has been getting more aggressive with blocking flash, which is a good thing. It cannot be stressed enough that flash is an outdated, insecure web technology. However, Kongregate still uses flash despite this. To get access to some features, like the purchase API, required for the gifts to work, you need to set up an exception. Because of the insecurity of flash, it's best to make this exception as specific as possible. Kongregate also seems to prevent even HTML5 games from running if flash is not enabled. If you just want to run HTML5 games, see the Less Flash Instructions.

More Flash InstructionsEdit

Follow these instructions if you want access to things like Kongregate's purchase API.

  1. Go to Chrome's settings, click "Show advanced settings..." at the bottom, Click "Content Settings" under Privacy, and find the Flash section.
  2. Under the flash settings, make sure the default setting is block. Globally allowing flash is a security risk. Then click "Manage Exceptions...".

  3. In the exceptions dialog, add an Allow exception for "[*.]kongregate.com".

  4. Finally, Chrome blocks specific kinds of flash that are generally more of a nuisance than helpful, but Chrome classifies some of Kongregate's flash this way. Go to chrome://flags/#run-all-flash-in-allow-mode and set the flag to Enabled.

Less Flash InstructionsEdit

Follow these instructions if you don't care about kongregate's purchase API and just want it to allow HTML5 games to run.

  1. Go to Chrome's settings, click "Show advanced settings..." at the bottom, Click "Content Settings" under Privacy, and find the Flash section.
  2. Under the flash settings, make sure the default setting is block. Globally allowing flash is a security risk. Then click "Manage Exceptions...".
    Flashsettingsdialog
  3. In the exceptions dialog, add an Ask exception for "[*.]kongregate.com". This seems to be sufficient to convince Kongregate that you have flash, but runs less of it.

  4. If you don't need this flag for any other site, you may also wish to set the flag chrome://flags/#run-all-flash-in-allow-mode to Default, to keep your exceptions minimal.
