Disable the rules from Annoyance filter (and probably the one you have in your user filter from this thread) and use this rule:
Code:
blogsmithmedia.com/www.aol.com/assets-*/javascripts/games-permalink-controller.js$replace=/7e3/0e1/
1-3 seconds after the page is loaded the game is started for me.

Thats definitely the best option so far.
The game loads quickly enough.
Thanks for that Blaz.

@Alex302, please remove the following rules from Annoyance filter:
Code:
aol.com#@#.adwrap
aol.com###player
aol.com#$#.ad__tile { height: 10px!important; position: absolute!important; left: -2000px!important; }
and add the following rule instead:
Code:
blogsmithmedia.com/www.aol.com/assets-*/javascripts/games-permalink-controller.js$replace=/7e3/0e1/

Remove previous rules, found a better solution:
Code:
blogsmithmedia.com/www.aol.com/assets-*/javascripts/games-permalink-controller.js$replace=/this.adBlockCheck()/this.loadGame()/
aol.com##.game-pre-load

This rule is actually worse than the previous rule Blaz.
This one takes about 12 seconds before the game appears.
The other rule takes about 4-5 seconds.

For me the game starts instantly with this rule as it exchanges the adblock detection init with game init.

The script initializes the following functions:
this.adBlockCheck(),
this.applyBindings(),
this.recentlyPlayed(),
this.gameInfo(),
this.socials(),
this.infoLinks()


Normally the adBlockCheck is calling the other functions, but as I didn't call it and called the game start, it starts instantly here. For me there is no waiting time as no timeout is called here.

Very strange indeed.

Issue still present and easily reproducible on my system.
Would you like to use TeamViewer to find and fix the issue.

I won't be home then, but I'll try to drop you a line as soon as I get back, and we'll see if you're online then.
Thanks.

I don't know why Blaz's previous rules didn't work for me.
But they do work well now.

Issue resolved.
Thanks.

@Alex302, please add the following rule(s):
Code:
blogsmithmedia.com/www.aol.com/assets-*/javascripts/games-permalink-controller.js$replace=/this.adBlockCheck()/this.loadGame()/
aol.com##.game-pre-load

The first rule changing nothing. The game loading time is ~5 seconds.

With rule game (and chat on the right side) is showing up instantly here instead of waiting a few seconds.

I disagree.
Without those two rules, I am forced to wait around 30 seconds before the game appears.
With the rules, its almost instant.
You're welcome to check it out via Team Viewer if necessary.
