Need Shockwave player 8 (not 10)

  Tim1964 23:54 01 Aug 2005

I have the Shockwave 'Shockmachine'on my PC, but now when I try to play any of the games on it, an error message pops up "This app requires shockwave player 8 which is not installed, click here to download it". If I follow the link to the Macromedia homepage it only offers the latest version 10 and not 8. The Shockmachine doesn't run with ver.10

Does anyone have a link to Shockwave player 8?

I've uninstalled v.10 and installed v.8.5 and now it works a treat.

Maybe the 'latest' isn't always best....
