    What loading problems were you having exactly?

    I ask because I caught it yesterday, and it ran fine for about 10 minutes then the levels kept constantly resetting and I'd see an error message because of my frame rate being too low (lies!) such that I could no longer make any progress. I wouldn't mind taking another stab at it today while chipping away at some other stuff.

    It had problems loading one specific "...asm.unity" file on 2 different computers using Chrome and Vivaldi. It wouldn't even start the game.

    The only problem I had during the task is that it couldn't communicate with the server a few times (3), so it restarted a level each time that happened.

    On the laptop I usually use for turking, it has Intel and nvidia graphics. It was using the crappy Intel GPU. I can't imagine how that simple game could have low framerates from the graphics or physics.

    edit... bored, no more turking today.

    I got the annoying "Please Skip or Return This HIT, and come back after an hour to see if you can proceed at that moment." a few minutes ago. I can never seem to get back in after that though... Any idea if that is typically the case?

    Some people find it's an IP thing from using different computers on them. I seem to find I get it if I've not opened facebook recently. I make sure I've logged on to FB before I start and don't have a problem even if I'm using hubby's PC or one of the laptops.

    I got it after completing about 11 of them today. However, I had my HITs Queue open in another browser window and was chipping away at a long survey in between working on each AdsForce while they loaded. When I finished the survey, the next HIT in my queue opened, which was the AdsForce I was already working on in a separate window... so I wonder if opening the same HIT in 2 separate windows triggered the error?

    Yes, you can only open one instance of them. But it should have cleared up if you just saw it once and closed that 2nd HIT.

    Can someone explain the captcha's to me? I thought it was ~every 35, but sometimes it pops up ever 5 or 10 in a batch?

    They changed it with the new site. I was under the impression people were getting them far less often now though.
