Flash Emulation Update
We’re using Ruffle, a Flash emulation project started by @Mike, to run Flash content without the Flash plugin on NG. Alien Hominid is now running flawlessly without Flash and you can see how close Dad ‘n Me is getting, with just a issues left to address.
I switched the Hunters game series over to Ruffle and would love someone to confirm a playthrough of episodes 1-5 works. It’s a cool series and features legendary voice actors like @D-Mac-Double and @Rina-chan.

For anything not supported by Ruffle, we created Newgrounds Player, which can launch and run Flash games when the browser doesn’t. The ultimate goal is to run everything in-browser with Ruffle. You can sponsor ongoing Ruffle development to help!
