    Default Help Please!

    So I was playing Free Realms for about 5 minutes when I had to get off my computer so I could eat dinner.
    When I came back to log in on my MacBook Pro 13 inch Free Realms would bounce one time, then close and take me to the Free Realms site.
    I got an Error message saying:

    You may need to adjust your firewall settings to play Free Realms.

    I don't know why it says this when I was playing perfectly before.
    I don't want to adjust my settings because then people can see my personal information.
    Please Help!

    I would guess you should just restart the mac, and if that doesn't work, try re-installing the game.
    I have a macbook, and I don't have any problems.
    Hey look, I cleaned out my signature!
    But now it seems empty...

    I get that every once in a while, when FR has updated my firewall, Zonealarm on a PC, doesn't recognize it as the same program and I have to renew the permissions, usually I get popup boxes to permit or deny access but sometimes the boxes are hidden behind other windows and the access fails.

    So how do I fix it?
    My parents don't allow me to take down my firewall because I'm only 13 and it has my info on it

    Free Realms has several occasional problems with Windows Firewall. This same thing happened to me with Quake III Arena and UT2004, although it give the permissions to keep blocking, unblock, or ignore.

    Other than that, because of these problems, it's best to ask for permission to update the firewall to let FR play once again. If this happens, it's nothing major. Plus, you can still access the site if there are any suspicions that an unathorized (I think that's how you spell it.) access from another OS has occurred.

    But it's still doing it

    What did you do exactly to install it?

    I'm confused...
    how do I make it ask permission TO update my firewall?
    Does that mean take it down, or just to let FR have access to my Mac?

    I meant as in Parental permission for them to change the Firewall around so FR has no problems with it.

    I've never heard of this problem before, have you sent in a ticket? The refs will normaly give step-by-step guides to fix things like this.
