Now that we have a new StarLogo Nova 2.0 available at slnova.org , those of you using the OLDER version of StarLogo Nova at http://flash.slnova.org/ will need to enable the flash player again under Chrome.   Here's a link to directions on how to do this  https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6258784.





5/3/17  (ARCHIVED, no longer pertinent)
We have had many reports from people saying that they can no longer open their StarLogo Nova projects. Upon further investigation we found that Chrome has been updated and its default setting does not to allow sites to run Flash.  (Flash is an animation platform that this version of StarLogo Nova uses.)
Here’s a fix:
Open Chrome and type “chrome://settings” in the URL bar:

A Settings page like this will open…

In the “Search settings” box on the upper right hand side of the page type “Flash”.  You should see results like this:

Click on content settings and then scroll down the page


Click on “Allow sites to run Flash”, then “Done”
Now go back and try to reload your StarLogo Nova project.

Please let us know if you are still experiencing loading issues
