A new version of Shickwave, which my computer automatically downloaded, make the solo game hang. The crash occurs the first time I attack another country. It gives the message "XXXX attacks Serbia (or whatever) with X arimes..." and then freezes.

Yeah both solo and multiplayer freezes in way you describe for me now after downloading new shockwave .
It last about 4 to 6 moves on first go then freezes
I have tried going back to an older shockwave but then i just get a blank screen.

I have the same problem. It only takes about 3 moves and the game freezes. First time I have ever had a problem with Conqueror, and I am so sad that I cannot play. It seems to be the newest Shockwave that causes the problem, so it might be fixed by the next release, or Conqueror might fix the code. Whatever the problem, it needs to be fixed.

P.S. I use Adobe Shockwave Player 11.5

if you download the Shockwave 10.2 version from here

[www.oldapps.com]

.......you can get to play on the basic 98 build.

Still haven't found the elusive 11.3 version that will get us back to normal.

Does anybody know where I can download the previous Shockwave version for Mac OS X? With the latest I'm unable to play.

Found a site with shockwave 11.03

[www.filehippo.com]

It actually has several 11 versions. I chose the latest one 11.03. 472 and everything is back to work right again.

The site was awkward to access but once you're in its fine.
Once you choose your version click the big green arrow above the list of versions, not the centre of the page, that will just take you to the Adobe site and they will force 11.5 on you again.

Not sure if they are okay for Mac as well Nelson but maybe elsewhere on the site could be. GL

I found the old version for OS X on one of my backups. I put it on Rapidshare so others can download it too (http://rapidshare.com/files/230199716/Shockwave_Installer_Slim.dmg.html)

Not here. Tried all the mentioned versions of Shockwave plus some others. Still freezes after a move or two. This is on the solo game, mind you, which I much prefer because the least little hiccup in my broadband connection seems to lose the connection to the game server in regular mode.

I tried this with Firefox and Google Chrome. Didn't try IE because I hate that #$%&!! thing.

Yes, I am really angry at Adode for breaking everything with Shockwave 11.5. Don't upgrade to 11.5 if you can help it!
