Ruffle Testing / Flash Preservation Crew

New Topic Respond to this Topic

This crew is for people who want to help test Flash games and movies with Ruffle!


Ruffle is what Newgrounds is using to run Flash content in the browser, without the Flash plugin. Over time, more and more content will be supported.


You can use this thread to report Flash content that is ready to run with Ruffle, or to report content that has already been switched to Ruffle but has bugs. Please be specific about what the bugs are.


To test existing content with Ruffle, add this to the content URL:


/format/flash?emulate=flash


For example:


https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/578559/format/flash?emulate=flash


That link will attempt to run the movie with Ruffe, however Ruffle doesn't support AS3 yet so it throws an error. This movie isn't ready to be switched over yet.


I have created two spreadsheets to track content that doesn't work:


Movies Not Working in Ruffle

Games Not Working in Ruffle


At the moment I am NOT logging games made with AS3; we will be ignoring them until AS3 support is further along. The goal at the moment is to find issues with AS2 games, in particular any game uploaded before June 27, 2006. We also want to find any AS2 games that were released after AS3 was introduced.


Since we'll be attempting to run ALL movies with Ruffle, I'm logging any movie that doesn't work - this includes ones that get AS3 errors.


If you're down to create new, larger thumbnails along the way, you can also participate in the Thumbnail Crew!

I shall help out, there were a few of my things that weren't working, I remember that when I was going through them.


This is garbage, but doesn't work with Ruffle.



The Clockday preloader for 2012 seems to not load.



So then anything on the collection page using the 2012 preloader is bugged.

Awesome! In a little bit I'll go through all my favourites, and see any of those are broke, then progress out from there.


I remember realising at 1am that I needed to change all my submissions to Ruffle, that was quite a task, even if it was just ticking a box, took quite a while.

I recently created a playlist for some of the flash game that does need of work before converting to Ruffle: https://www.newgrounds.com/playlists/view/6e678a796de8b6d2ebee9a9af869bbb2


I want to point out one game that works very great on Ruffle that is yet to be converted:


Now onward to some popular flash game that is buggy when trying out on Ruffle:


(Seem like this was converted today, oddly enough. Some Visual bug in the beginning but not too much. Music does not repeat, however, which can be very annoying, and there no option for that as well. FPS does drop but still playable needless to say.)


(Game is playable but the frame rate is god awful. Don't know if this is using AS3 or not since there wasn't any warning for it)


(Very buggy. Almost look like an unfinished game honestly.)


(Seems like the game is working but the menu is non-interactable aside from the Newgrounds link and their website, so you can't really play the game. Don't know if this is AS3 as well.)


That all I can bring for now. I try to add some more to the list if I discovered some flash content that either can be used in Ruffle or can't yet due to a bug. You can DM me if you find some.

The OG Meat Boy seems to work except for the Map Creation, and the buttons being visible in the UI.

I like Newgrounds a little too much.

The normal version of Suenio does not work with Ruffle. The game is made in AS2 and it does not even load because it uses a render to make it look retro:


  • attachMovie()
  • new flash.display.BitmapData()


I know it is because I made it work with Ruffle without these functions.

Achievement Unlocked is fine too!


Thanks, Ruffle is enabled on these now!

Being One -Part 1

I get the start screen, and the "continue" button seems to function, but doesn't start the game.

Parts 2 & 3 seem to be working fine.

You may want to check with Armor Games. I discovered by accident that they also started using Ruffle.

Excit and 5 Differences works

Kodachrome shows no AS3 warning but is from 2012 and does not work at all.

Space is Key is similar but different.

Gateway breaks in the second room.

Synopsis loads, but stops there. May have audio issues.

MindFeed works. The options can be hard to click, but I haven't played it in a year.

Thanks! I've enabled Ruffle on MindFeed and Excit. I added the others to the spreadsheet.


Is this the 5 Differences you are trying?



You can include links with any other reports to be sure I find the right ones.

Strangely enough, differences start fixing themselves after returning to the game, breaking it because the counter does not go down.

This is strange. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. You can turn it on because refreshing fixes it.

It occurs when you collapse the game. I just discovered it by accident.

There are graphics glitches (alpha related) on the bridge level, and the four on the stair level is a little messed up. A seam is present on the last level. That is the only issue with the game, minus the collapse button breaking it.

Some tests I've run on some games I remember. (Or the ones that didn't give me AS3 warnings, anyway.)


  • Megaman X: RPG Chapter 0: stops at the preloader.
  • Megaman X RPG: Chapter 1: main menu and options work, but starting a new game gives a blank green screen.
  • Epic Battle Fantasy: apparently functional, though I've only briefly tested it.
  • Epic Battle Fantasy 2: apparently functional, although I've only tested up to 25% completion.
  • Epic Battle Fantasy 3: executable, but unplayable -- there are a number of visual glitches (the main menu is almost unreadable), the BGM cuts out randomly, the battle-action menu can't be interacted with (softlock), and it's just generally very slow.

Movies Not Working in Ruffle


https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/776881 Multiple layers of streaming audio lags behind in my latest movie, made in Flash 8.


https://www.newgrounds.com/projects/movies/1569816/preview/filetype/0

I also have a version with a preloader, which also doesn't work because the whole file loads before it can run.

And for some reason, the last two scenes doesn't work properly on normal Flash.


Go and subscribe and comment on my flies.


Two recent games by @MiracleFruitClock appear to work fine using Ruffle, with the exception of one primary method of gameplay.


Poly's Mountain Adventure: Appears to work fine, due to it being so basic. No AS3 error, implying.

There is a section where you have to rip a bear's dick off. While the cursor does change when you hover over it, you can't pull the bear's dick off and progress to the rest of the game.


Border Crossing has a similar issue, where you can't take the sombrero or lift up the border. There are more instances where this occurs. The rest of the game is so basic, that it appears to work fine.

This game also uses medals, while the prompt that says you earned it shows up, it doesn't actually give you the medal.

I only tested the one where you talk to BB10, but it's very likely the others don't work either.

The level icons don't appear. It's not game breaking but i thought i should mention it.

Edit: it seems the music on some of the levels is bugged too
