Newgrounds Player news: As part of the installation process, NG Player will now update your Flash\mms.cfg config file in Windows to allow Flash to run. I did a clean install on my computer and everything worked without a hitch; I hope the same goes for you!
Newgrounds runs Flash in-browser via Ruffle whenever possible and utilizes Newgrounds Player for anything not yet supported by Ruffle. You can manage these settings under the Flash Options on your Account Options page, if you want to bypass Ruffle or use traditional Flash embeds with a browser that supports them.
We’ve also updated the Download Options on your account options page to include your PM inbox and sentbox, in addition to things like uploaded content.
We fixed a bug where the sentbox limit wasn’t being applied and you may now have to clear out space before you can send new PMs. We’ve doubled PM storage for anyone who has ever been a Supporter, even if you aren’t one currently. Thank you for the support!
While we’re talking about account options, visit your content settings page to specify defaults for individual movie, game, art and audio hubs, such as Featured, Latest, Popular or Previously Browsed. This page also lets you manage things like blocked users and blocked tags, which should now work in all hubs and all search results.
Oh and if you were ever on a page for a long time and then scrolled down and got repeat entries, that should be fixed.

Hope everyone in Texas is managing to stay warm. I’m hopeful for a future where we have a modern power grid that benefits everyone in situations like these. This song came on as I was typing this and I thought, “This is a good song to imagine a better future to.”
I recommend reading The New Climate War for an optimistic take on where we are right now.
