I know it is very very late, but I did refund your account. I am trying to figure out the bug that caused it, but if it happens in future you will get a faster response by emailing me at heather@emeraldactivities.com

I just pop on to the site now and then to check if it is working and if there is a bunch of stuff to approve :)

We used an old web technology called "Flash" to make the games on this website. But Flash is being phased out all over the internet, so right now you need to enable it in your browser (chrome, firefox, etc...) in order to play.

The exact process to enable flash will differ from browser to browser, but you can google "how to enable flash on <write your browser name instead of this part>" and you can get instructions on how to allow our games to run.

We are working on a new version of the Magic Makers, one that you will probably download through a service like Steam, but it won't be available for a while yet :(

I'm so sorry!

I have been so busy with the kids home I haven't been online much at all. I will try and take a look and figure out what is happening and refund the emeralds. Might not get done tonight though, I don't actually remember how to do refunds and add emeralds to accounts, it has been a while since I did it last ;)

Did it give you your purchase in the end, or did the purchase fail completely?

I wish I could somehow add more time to my day... poking at some of the unfinished makers I had going and I really want to finish them :(
on: December 17, 2018, 11:53:25 AM 5 Feedback / Bug Reports / Re: Not loading
The makers use a technology called "Adobe Flash" that is now disabled by default in most browsers. In order to play our games, you need to enable flash on our website.

This a link that explains how to enable it in chrome:
https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784

But if you use a different browser, you should be able to google instructions on how to make it work there. (Just a note though, these games don't run on phones at all.)

We are working on a new version of the makers that we plan to have done before flash is going completely, but we are not sure if it will be a download or a play online thing...

(Sorry for the copy and paste answer, but I have to answer this a lot at the moment.)

Welcome back :)

Internet browsers now block flash (the tech the games run on) by default, so you have to enable it for our site if you want to play. There are instructions for doing so in chrome here:

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784

Hopefully we will get the new non flash version done before flash dies completely ;)

Hi there!

Browsers block the technology this site was made on now (it is being phased out). We are redoing the games to save them, but they won't be done for quite a while. For now, if you want to play, you need to enable flash. You can try following the instructions here:

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784

(If you don't use chrome, you will need to look it up for your specific browser.)

Hope that helps!

I didn't mod those, so I am not sure....

Although we do allow some level of violent content, I try to keep it Disney level.

I honestly didn't even know vore was a thing (I just looked up the definition), but there are some legitimate uses of being "eaten" or alive in a stomach in many classic myths and stories, like the characters being eaten by the whale in Pinocchio for example, so I will not put an outright ban on it. But if you see an image that you feel is crossing a line, please e-mail me so I can take a look :)

This is an old post, so my reply is way too late but I will answer in case anyone else comes looking for the same thing. When people want to reposition a leg, they make an "assets" out of the different parts of the body so they can cut them apart and move them as needed.

Making an asset is sort of like taking a picture of a small area of the image. Once you have that picture, it can't be coloured anymore, but you can rotate it and such.

the other option is to just use other shapes from different makers to build the parts you need :)

If the games won't load, it is because the browser you are using is blocking the use of flash on our site, you will have to enable it for the games to work.

We are trying to redo the games so they don't need flash anymore :)

Hi Shadow Rush!

I am sorry, I haven't been watching the forum so I didn't see this.

But it is all good now right? :)

Well, this answer is super late... but Brad and I do intend to update the makers and colouring books since the technology they were built with is being slowly removed from the internet.

The past few years have just been rough time wise and burn out wise, lol. We haven't even been doing much VR, just existing.

I have too much work put into the makers though to just throw them away, so we will do something for sure ;)

Hi Ramoth!

Well, I am super glad you dropped in and I remember you :)

You are one of the very first visitors to this site that chatted at me, back when we had just added the forum. It was as quiet back then as it is now, but newer and shinier, lol.

Please do come back and visit us again when you are bored, I would love to know what you are up to and see your new work.

Happy Summer!

Hi everybody! :)

As long as the site is still online, it means we have not abandoned it... we pay for hosting to keep it here, lol.

We have just been really too busy to do much development of any kind, and unsure as to how exactly we should save the content on this site. Flash games (like our makers and colouring books) are now blocked by default in browsers because flash is being phased out. So most visitors to this site get here, try to play and nothing works so they leave.

(If you are reading this and the games don't work for you, google how to enable flash.)

Sooner or later though, we will figure this out and give you all an updated version of makers to play with. We are just not sure if it will be web-based games, or maybe just a website where you can download the games and run them locally. I have many pack pieces and in progress makers, it's just hard to work on them when I know I have to redo them for the future maker version :)

I've been picking away at it the last few days when I take breaks from mutato match. It is still going slowly but hopefully this will get me through it.
