Reality Kings and Windows 8

Just a heads up, I bought a new computer this weekend that has windows 8 pre-installed. I tried to log into Reality Kings and was unable to access the login page. I used explorer and Google Chrome, no luck on either. I thought the site was down? I came to TBP to see if anyone else was experiencing similar issues.

I found a comment from another subscriber who said he had the same issues, contacted the company, was told they are aware of the issue but can offer no date as to when the compatibility issue will be resolved. No refund was offered.

Now I am leery to join another site for fear that I sign up and cant access because of compatibility issues. If anyone else experiences this problem on another site can you please share? Thanks in advance

Have you tried Firefox? Sometimes the firewalls or antivirus software messes things up. I've had similar problems, but with different software. Try Firefox if you can and maybe even temporarily disable your antivirus and firewall and try and log in. But then turn your firewall and antivirus back on, just do this to troubleshoot. Good luck!

If the site can't help you, send a message to Micro$oft

Arguing with some people is like trying to play chess with a pigeon - it knocks the pieces over, shits all over the board, then flies back to its flock to claim victory.

spent 30 minutes this morning with Microsoft Windows support. No luck, their only interest was proving that there was nothing wrong with Windows 8. I allowed the rep remote access to my computer. he tried to access realitykings and got nothing. he then, "pinged" reality kings and got no response leading him to decide there must be a problem with the site cause they did not respond.

Maybe he's right, the issue is RK's incompatibility with windows 8, but you'd think their webmaster would work with Microsoft to address it before it begins to cost them real money in the loss of customers? Oh well, again, thanks for all of the responses.

I'm no ubergeek, but I don't see how a website could be incompatible with an operating system. If the website is available to any computer not using Windoze 8, that's got to be an issue with the operating system. But it figures that the M$ rep went out of his way to blame something other than their product.

Like RB, I am no ubergeek, but I would assume that there is some setting in your firewall or antivirus or operating system setting that is preventing you, in general, from access an "adult" site.

I assume that some of these programs have some internal switch that controls access to "adult" sites and content. If the switch is closed, meaning the computer system is set to block access to adult content, it's not really the fault of the computer or the operating system, but how they are set to run.

Can you ping the reality site yourself with a DOS window, to see if the site responds? Use Google for instructions on how to do that. As long as the site is up and active, the DOS window should return a positive Ping.

I'm guessing that Microsoft itself, due to company policy, would have some blocking system that stops access to "adult" sites, and that might have influenced the tech's attempt to Ping the site.

Ok you can try a few tests that may shed light.


Try http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/


Does your internet connection have a router?
Some new routers have parental settings.

Being no browser will allow you access and if the above test says it is just you ?

Try tor browsing or and IP masking or proxy where it will use a different IP address to surf. This may be slow as proxys are but will allow you to see if its is your IP or PC.


Those are idea to start narrowing things down.

Thanks for all of the replies.....to their credit, RK has been responsive to my emails and had a tech guy working with me. However, after several attempts by him, still no resolution.

I just tried the "downforeveryoneorjustme" link.....of course, its just me. The strange thing is that microsoft and the RK tech thought it might be my anti-virus software(its not, I disabled it) or a smart screener(its not, I disabled it) plus I can access every other adult site without issue.

Again, thanks for all of your replies and suggestions.

The strange thing is that I can access the mobile version of RK from my computer but not the main site? Does that offer any clues? That would normally suffice, but the mobile version is very limited. I can only download a very low quality version of the updates. Its not nearly the same.

It is a strange problem. You tried different browsers? Did you purge your temporary internet files? Can you try to log in on a different PC? Have you reset your modem? See if you can get a different IP address. A true neck-lover.

I tried IE, chrome and firefox. I purged temp files. The reason I think its a windows 8 problem and not an IP address/routing problem is I can log into RK from any other computer. And this computer that cant log into RK, has no problem accessing any other adult site. Including reality kings mobile.....again, I not tech savvy.

the tech person from RK had me do a "trace routing?" I dont know if that offered him any clues as I havent heard back from him since he did that. Well, that was Friday afternoon,, so hopefully this week will offer resolution.

But to be able to log into reality kings mobile but not their main site? doesnt sound like its my computer. And another user in the RK comments section here at TBP said they have the same issue. Unable to login with a new computer using Windows 8. Oh well, my membership renews next week, if no resolution, I guess I have to cancel cause the mobile version sucks.....cant stream on my computer and I can only download a crap version, no HD....

Again, thanks for your suggestions and help

True. You'll have to wait for the rest of us to catch up. By then this glitch will likely be fixed, or RK will lose a lot more business. A true neck-lover.
