Good … for now. Thanks @sonucais.
Yeah nope. The .cfg file solution doesn't do anything for me either. The Flash Player Plugin included with NG Player plain refuses to install. It's got nothing to do with newgrounds website being blocked by Adobe or whatever. Same Error 1722. I never had this error when I installed NG Player months ago. In Dec 2020 to be exact... which is actually less than a month. Less than a month and it screwed up already.
Well screw that. Anyways was reading Andkon's FAQ on running Flash games.

And his link to Flash Player 32.0.0.371 (NPAPI version A.K.A. plugins for Firefox/Palemoon) worked for me. At least until Firefox kills Flash too. So that version of Flash Player should work better than Version 28 which I tested earlier.

@Sonucais recently edited his News Post and brought up another user that is supposedly a better way of bypassing the killswitch. And it works! Here: https://sonucais.newgrounds.com/news/post/1137244


I've already posted this before. Just wanted to let you know.


I'm quite new to programming. Am currently making a really tiny game. Play the Alpha Version Now!

UPDATE:

Using the Flash Uninstaller and restarting windows made NG Player work again....

For other flash websites, well you're still need to install an older Flash Player like I said before....

CC @DamnWei

Try downloading the current version of NG Player and doing a fresh install. Let me know if it's still not working afterwards. Older versions would have had the killswitch, if that is what is happening now.

Also if Windows prompts you to uninstall Flash, be sure to click No. The player needs the Flash runtime to be installed.


I just followed your link to get the "latest version" and downloaded a file that was exactly the same size as the "Install_Newgrounds_Player.msi" I downloaded on 9-11-2020. But I named it "Install_Newgrounds_Player 2021.msi" and used the old MS dos comp command comp "Install_Newgrounds_Player 2021.msi" "Install_Newgrounds_Player.msi" and it said the 2 were the same exact file bit for bit throughout the contents. I am very skeptical that this will be any different than the version that just completely stopped working and made the image exactly as the OP of this thread posted. It's POSSIBLE that it is just an installer that links to something else through the internet, but I highly doubt it, I think no one actually updated the program.


FYI, while you're fixing it, I'd like to point out some problems with it even when it did work. Newgrounds player was not working properly for a lot of things. For instance the game "rullo", not sure if it's on newgrounds but it is (or was, maybe they're taken down or soon will be for the end of an era) on notdoppler, but whenever the game generated a puzzle that was too tall in the infinite mode, it would be outside the boundaries of the screen, whereas the original flash game worked in a regular browser just fine. And most of the time I ran it for bonk.io, it would not be responsive to the enter button, so I would be unable to chat with the other players, since sending a chat message was initiated by hitting the enter button. For some reason, about 5 or 10% of the time I ran it though, it would respond to the enter button just fine. And no I don't mean I'd have to spam the enter button 20 times before one took, I mean the entire session it would not respond to the enter button and occasionally there would be sessions where it would work. And it would often be nonresponsive for a certain time at random, I'd press a button and it would act as if I was holding the button, or it would ignore me pressing a button for a second or 2, which made me from a nigh unbeatable to a mediocre player in bonk.io.

Thank you Damnwei. You are truly the one. Or something. Well I haven't installed palemoon or seen if it all works yet, it's downloading still, but your post rings of the most likely to work.


Sadly I deleted my adobe flash when it expired, so I don't know if NWPlayer will work for me. It shows me same picture, that it's deleted as adobe.


So I downloaded older version as one of the coments said, but I cant't find it in pc and don't have a clue how to fix it

Just to add my experience to the pile for anyone else who finds this thread, @Sonucais's cfg file solution that's been linked multiple times in this thread worked for me on Windows 10 with Flash version 32.

Response to Newgrounds Player Problems 2021-02-03 09:46:47


Something of a different problem (tagging @Sonucais for the hell of it):


Stuff I launch from NG works, but if I download a SWF and attempt to run it in the player, it doesn't.

Use a normal Flash Player for that (an standalone exe, on the bottom of that guide I made.)

I tried just about everything on there, and it still doesn’t work on my PC at all. Everytime I launch the NG Player it keeps saying I need to install the Flash Plugin to Internet Explorer, and everytime it tries to it rejects it saying its already built in.

Please, check Flash Forwarder Tools https://sonucais.newgrounds.com/news/post/1145224


I've been developing it today. Available for Windows and MacOS. It loads NG Flash content by providing the id.

Does the Newgrounds Player not work for anyone at all any more? It was working fine in January for me, but now the blank screen with the logo is all I get.

glade to know im not the only one encountering this issue. due to this 95% of my favorite NG games are not unplayable because you have to hack the NG client and your computer to have even a remote chance of it possibly running.

I have a similar problem; but for me it just doesnt want to install flash at all. It just keeps teling me that Microsoft Edge already has the latest version of flash when I try to launchthe install_flash_player executabe in it's programms folder, which I don't care about since I don't use Edge.


I actually tried lauching the thing through the Edge browser, but even there I get the prompt "do you want to install flash?" , I then click "Yes" and absolutely nothing happens.
