  • I've installed the Unity Web Player, but it's telling to install it again. What do I do?

    1. First check to see if the Unity Web Player is actually installed. Go here. If it's installed, it should show the version number over on the right.
    2. Follow these guidelines to reinstall here.
    3. If other games work, like this one, then the problem is probably on FreeFall Tournaments side, so please private message freerangegames with your web player version number.
