You'll need to upgrade to be able to play it. (You have version )" - that is no version number. I've tried both Firefox 1.5 Beta 2 and RC1, with the same result. I'm not sure, but it seems Shockwave 10.1.0.11 can't report which version it has, when running Firefox 1.5. This was never a problem with Firefox 1.0.x. However, trying Shockwave games at www.shockwave.com works fine. I'm hoping for a fix of this bug before 1.5 final. Keep up the good work! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Does it report the version you use when you look at the Shockwave test under http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/welcome/?
(In reply to comment #1) Yes, it reports 10.1r11. The same as http://clevermedia.com/game.php?help/versions
Version: unspecified → 1.5 Branch
All games at http://www.clevermedia.com/game.php should be Shockwave games with this error message. The Shockwave games by CleverMedia I've found to work with Firefox 1.5 so far are at http://justsolitaire.com/, http://justjigsawpuzzles.com/ and http://gamespark.com/.
See bug 321704 It is highly likely that the referenced material would work with the system locale decimal symbol set to a period, but not if it's set to a comma. Can not check since the clevermedia.com site seems to be down
(In reply to comment #5) > However, since Clevermedia is American and > hence are using decimal point, they couldn't reproduce this error. bug 321704 contains steps to reproduce the bug on US systems. Though the people at Clevermedia might know best, it is most likely that they are using either a value() or float() call on a string representing the version inside Shockwave, which breaks with the wrong decimal symbol.
The web site http://www.borgarvefsja.is/bvs.html does not work in Firefox 1.5 if I have Windows regional settings set to Icelandic (European style decimal symbol and list separator). I get a popup box titled "Director Player Error" and the text "List expected for handler #duplicate". Eventually I have to use the Task Manager to kill the Firefox process. Works fine if they are set to English (US). Main differences between these regional settings is that English uses . as decimal symbol but Icelandic uses , and English uses , as list separator but Icelandic uses ; and finally that English uses , as digit grouping symbol but Icelandic uses . Works fine in Firefox 1.0.x and IE 6 regardless of regional settings => a bug in Firefox 1.5(?)
non-us locales need to get newer shockwave player per bug 321704
