Common Problems


File/Path Access Error when starting the game under windows.

If you are running Vista or Windows 7 you may need to start 4PLAY with administrator privileges the first time the game is run. This feature takes advantage of newer security features to insure that minors with access to the computer can not run the game. After running 4PLAY 6.0 for the first time you may password protect the game.


Right-click on the 4PLAY 6.0 Icon (either on the desktop or in the START menu) then select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.

You will only need to do this once.








There is a very long delay between rolls of the dice even if no actions occur.


On systems with slow disk access or certain anti-virus software installed the AUTOSAVE option can produce an appreciable delay. You can turn this option off by clicking the disk icon to the left of the player's names.






I cannot verify the 4PLAY server even though my internet connection is working?


This is most likely the result of anti-virus or Internet security software. Kaspersky is a known offender but any firewall software could cause this issue. The solution is to turn the software off while you register or upgrade. 4PLAY has been tested with the XP, Vista and Windows 7 firewalls, but this does not mean that there might not be issues on some systems.





I am getting a RUNTIME ERROR?

This is an error external to the game, either in an OCX or DLL used by the game or in a driver. Most of the time this is the result of a corrupted install (files can be corrupted during download). Try uninstalling the game and download a fresh install. If the game had been working then suddenly stops it is possible another piece of software has installed a version of a file needed by the game that is incompatible with 4PLAY. Remove the game and reinstall it.


(note the window will not look exactly like this)


I need help while running the game?



Most windows have a ? icon in the upper right hand corner. Clicking this icon will take you to help on that specific window.
