Welcome back Everyone,

2020 is going to be a great year of updates. After a many year pause, work has resumed on BATTLE FORCES. We began soft-launching the new site over the past two months. It went well, so now we will be formally announcing site updates going forward.

Today we have just released version 3.6.0. Please refresh your browser if you do not see it already. It includes many small enhancements including better team display in team games.

Expect more updates all through 2020.

See you on the battlefield,

Hello Erich,

The original two versions of BATTLE FORCES were based on Flash. It required Flash to play, something that was usually included with browsers. This easy access allowed a fun group of players to grow and enjoy BATTLE FORCES.

Unfortunately due to security and maintenance concerns, Flash support began to be dropped from popular web browsers about three years ago. This had a direct effect on attracting new players and allowing existing players to play. As a result, active players have dropped.

Until recently, we have not had the time or resources for the large rewrite required to move BATTLE FORCES from Flash to a newer technology. Fortunately this has now begun. As you have experienced our new version can be played without flash. There is still much to do, but as we round out the features, we expect new players to discover us and enjoy a growing user base.

2020 will be the year of BATTLE FORCES growth! Stay tuned for enhancements and additions all year long.

See you on the battlefield,
The BATTLE FORCES Team

Hello Erich,

Sorry that things are not running smoothly for you. One quick thing to try, if you have not already, is to flush your browser cache and reload.

If it still continues to fail, you should be able to quit from a game if you scroll to the bottom of the details page for the given game (before you enter the actual game itself). There will be a button near the bottom of the screen. You may have to scroll down.

Please let us know if either of these solve your issue.

Thank you for playing,
The BATTLE FORCES Team

We have now soft-launched an early version of a non-Flash interface, so you can once again play directly from your Chrome (or other) browser.
There are still additional features that need to be completed, but at least for now you can play without Flash!

See you on the battlefield,
The BATTLE FORCES team.

Battle Forces uses Adobe Flash to facilitate interaction with the game map.

Unfortunately many browsers have started making it difficult to run Flash games.
Depending on the browser, you will either need to install Flash and/or enable it.

Google search "how to run flash" for further details.
