    A lot of Flash game speedrunners also use the Flash standalone launcher, which is basically an executable that launches a flash player on your computer, however it isn't installed on to your computer. You can run swfs through that.

    Option 1: Stop updating flash and just give an EOL warning. Option 2: Actively sabotage your own product so people can't even use their old favorites. Wouldn't you know it they went for option 2. Option 1: Receive 1 billion dollars. Option 2: Have diarhea ladled into your mouth. I bet those same people at adobe would still go for option 2 since it is the worst option available to them.

    I don't need selected few games that are approved by someone else, I want the original experience of going to a website and playing a game how it was intended. Better to just dig up portable FF68ESR and old version of Flash installer and have it in a sandbox than go through these hoops.

  • RosinSmoke


    3 bulan yang lalu

    @TOMYSSHADOW some websites deliberately asked not to be included because they want to host games themselves, I believe it's not that bad



    3 bulan yang lalu

    The problem is how much longer will these websites still exist and be able to make a profit if Flash no longer works for the average browser user? The problem that Flashpoint is trying to solve is not really the technical one, it's the human issue of websites disappearing as a result of Flash's EOL. Mind you, it is not really a "selected few games." They will accept any submission at all. Anyone can contribute.

    @Melonade Man it's on their own website, check the compatibility section or try to use it with, say, FlyAnvil's "Decision", for most of the games it just shows black screen because most of them are written for newer versions of language. Ruffles might run some early cartoons, but that's it.

    It's hard to find archived versions of Flash Player, but I just downloaded Flash Player 11 from an archive and it works perfectly even in my modern browser. I suspect you could also get some more modern versions with the right links and the internet archive, but this is just my example. No one needs to panic if they really need to use Flash content online these days. Adobe can only block modern versions of Flash from running content, not the versions they published before they added the EOL date. If anyone needs Flash Player 11 for some reason here you go, but like I said more modern archives of still working versions probably exist somewhere:
