I play on chrome normally, on the kong website, and besides the fact that I have to click the puzzle piece each time I load and allow plugins, it's not too bad... until I go raiding or shooting a ton of zombies. Even on lowest settings, it's terrible. I know it's Flash's fault, is there a better way to play? Does CON have any future plans to say maybe move TLSDZ to a client or something instead of this dying flash? I love the game and want to continue to play it but the lag and constant flash crashes, make it very hard. :(

The recommended browser is Firefox. Chrome usually gives more trouble because they use a propietary version of Flash Player.

I always used Firefox to play this game, never had big issues with the game so far.

The best browser to play on is the one that works best for you.   

 

As mentioned above, Chrome uses their own version of flash -- for some people it's fine, for others it's nothing but lag/crash city.   The developers recommend Firefox (it's what they use), but for some people Firefox doesn't work very well.   Others swear by Internet Explorer (shocking I know). 

 

It comes down to your hardware/software configuration and no two people are exactly the same.  Your best best is load the game up in each (but not at the same time for course), and see which one works best for you.

Unfortunately, firefox won't load for me, what's the trick to get it to load? I get to the site, click allow plugins, and it loads up to where it would show my compound but freezes the entire browser and I have to task manager close it. Microsoft edge just tells me I have no flash installed, and I haven't tried IE, I guess I can. But what about my other question, does anybody know if con has future plans to move the game off flash? I know it'd be a ton of work.

It freezes on me too, but only temporarily. What I do is to wait a few minutes (about 2-3), until it finishes loading. When I can hover the mouse over some icon and see movement (for example, I put the pointer on the Map icon and it highlights) , I know it's ready- to play. Try not to open anything before you can see the button animations, or it might take a little longer.

 

P.D. this behavior indeed started after the update.

P.D.2: Par Sennah, sorry I meant to upvote but my fat fingers pressed the wrong button and I can't take it back. Please disregard.
