The End of Flash Day 2 2021-01-13 12:47:29


Yesterday was the true End of Flash day, where Flash was officially removed from browsers.


There was a surprise where Windows itself started blocking Flash as well, resulting in Newgrounds Player not working.


@Sonucais came up with an initial workaround and then @dclxvi-satan found a better one. 


Sonucais has now made a post with instructions to get Flash working with Newgrounds Player, via a config file edit. We’re looking into making that part of the install process.


Newgrounds has also been using Ruffle to emulate Flash in the browser. We made a bulk change yesterday where ALL Flash movies were set to run with Ruffle along with ALL Flash games from before July 2006. We chose that date because Ruffle supports most AS2 games but not AS3 games, which started arriving that month.


I’ve been keeping spreadsheets of movies that don’t work and AS2 games that don’t work and have already disabled Ruffle on those.


If you find anything that is trying to run with Ruffle but doesn’t work, please note it in the Ruffle Testing / Flash Preservation Crew thread.


You can also test Ruffle on content where it isn’t enabled by adding “/format/flash?emulate=flash” to the end of the URL. If you find something that works, let us know in the testing thread! A good example would be AS2 games released after July, 2006.


If you’re wondering where to start, our hubs let you browse by specific date ranges. For example here are the games from July 1st, 2006 to January 1st, 2008, ranked by views. Choose “Custom” in the Range dropdown to set parameters like this - if you want to commit to checking a specific date range, you could note it in the testing thread so other users are encouraged to pursue a different range.


We also have a thumbnail crew thread if you’d like to help update thumbnails with higher resolution source images.


Any help with this stuff is greatly appreciated; it’s a lot of material to sort through!


More About Ruffle and Flash Preservation


Most of the content shared on NG nowadays isn’t Flash; you can share your HTML5 games and any sort of original animation you’ve made in video format, as well as art, music, voice reels and podcasts. As the original Flash Portal we continue to host both old and new Flash content.


Newgrounds sponsors the development of Ruffle.rs, to run Flash content in the browser without Flash. Flash will be removed from browsers at the end of the year but thanks to Ruffle, we can enjoy Flash forever! Ruffle doesn’t support everything yet, which is why we have Newgrounds Player as a desktop fallback until it does.


Ruffle was created by @Mike as an open-source alternative to the Flash plug-in, free of all the legacy problems associated with Flash. Lots of smart people have gotten involved with the project and you can sponsor it with money or help as a Rust developer.

Yo, shout out to the community for hopping on the workarounds so quickly!


There's a lot of work ahead for continuing to preserve old content, and that spreadsheet idea is serious dedication!

You're doing God's work, Tom! Props to the community for their commitment to preservation.


Will there be an option for creators to manually opt in to using Ruffle? All of my Flash games use AS2, but were made after 2006 (all the way up to 2016... man, I am one stubborn bastard). I'd love to save some archiver the trouble of testing them all and just enable Ruffle myself if it's likely to work.

If you click the pencil to access your project details, you should see a checkbox under your swf file to enable Ruffle - let me know how it goes!

Looked for something like that before posting and still scrolled right by it. Woops.


It worked great! The in-game fullscreen button doesn't seem to work anymore but that's a small price to pay for preservation. I knew working in AS2 10 years past its death would come in handy one day.

You can still run most flash games through the sa_flashplayer (StandAlone FlashPlayer) If you can find a download link for it.


Ruffle is great, my flash game works fine in it on a newer computer (far better specs)

2.Enable Flash on your browser

3.Enjoy

You can download Ruffle as an add-on for Firefox/Chrome. So far it's been working well for me.

These still work but they're bound by the latter agreement:


You may make copies of a Windows or Macintosh projector that you create using Adobe Flash Professional or Flash Builder and distribute those copies solely for internal use (i) by yourself or personnel within your organization or (ii) by one other party on whose behalf you created the projector.

There was a surprise where Windows itself started blocking Flash as well, resulting in Newgrounds Player not working.


You are right. Today Microsoft enforced an update to my Windows 8.1 including "security update for Adobe Flash Player". I will be trying to remove it again. @Sonucais - looks like your method will have to be repeated more than once.


Equal medal chances for everyone!
