I just need to say this since this (used) to be my top site for light gaming... and when i say top i mean i even reccomended it to friends...

Since this downloadable player came out i cannot play any of the new good games and i have absolutely lost faith to this site... non of the other major game sites give me any problems.... my pc is overly able to play those kind of games but block me from downloading this player (work pc).
So anyway i am still browsing and trying to find something playable even though i am dissapointed...

Just my humble opinion...

Angel..

Downloadable player?... Well, you need a Flashplayer (Adobe...) and sometimes (MMOs) Java, you dont need any other players.
Besides that you need nothing.

If you havent them on your work PC and you cant download them.... its not AGs fault!
Your boss (company, whatever) block it.

I have yet to play a game on Armor Games that requires a downloadable player. Yes, these games do require Adobe Flash, but this is why the games are called Flash games. Any site that has flash games (Armor Games, Kongregate, Xgenstudios, Miniclip, etc.) will require the flash player.

If you can post the link the to the games that require this, I can tell you if I run into the same problem.

In the mean time, try to keep in mind, are you certain you weren't visiting a different site and just thought you were on Armor Games?

Also, is your computer infected with any viruses or malware, I'm not 100% certain, but it may be a virus that is asking you to download a 'downloadable player".

Are you talking about the MMO games? A couple of them require Unity to run.

Aside from those, no game here needs a (non-standard) downloadable player.

Indeed; and, last time I ran into it, though ostensibly installed I don't think I've ever gotten it to work yet on my box.

Oh well. There are plenty of games that don't require it, or if you insist, I'm sure there must be ways to get it to work :) Over to reading up on it on the web!

Glad I'm not the only one who could never get that program to work!

'Tis a funny lil piece of software, innit.

Oh well, can't say I ever put much effort into it. So maybe it's just me/us, then. Could be something for a thread for aficionados to explain? Unity Player: My Life & Tribulations With It ;)

the Unity player is a self-install/update on Chrome (at least for Windows)...  Flash as well.

So if you try using Chrome you won't have any issues with getting Unity to work.  I chime in since you'll be seeing more Unity content on the site in the coming months.  :)

How's about in Firefox?

I've honestly never looked into it much, maybe all it takes is a little attention from the user and it will be fine :)

ps If someone wants to drop a link here to a game or two using Unity Player, I don't mind having a look at getting it to work at my end.

And, Tass, I guess it's safe to say then that it doesn't just automagically run, for all. If you're involved in such circles, maybe it'd be something for them to take along; although you'd think they'd already be aware of it.
