Title: Flash Player EOL and the arcade
Post by: brynn on June 17, 2020, 02:55:50 PM
Hi Friends,
I was just upgrading my Flash Player when I saw the announcement about the End of Life (Dec 2020) for Flash Player.  It says that after Dec 2020, flash content will not be allowed to play anymore.

So I'm wondering what the plans are for the arcade?  Will you get new games which don't run on Flash Player (that run on other plugins or software)?  Or will the arcade just be closed?

I'd be glad to help find non-flash games, if you can direct me to any databases.

Brynn.  I'm not sure what to do with this atm, although there is a arcade version which will run html5 games, there isn't many games converted to be compatible with it it yet, or at least there wasn't when I last looked..  I might end up removing the arcade.  After all it takes up a fair bit of server space which we are struggling with atm.  We'll see.

With some brief research, I found some download sites for games that are said to be compatible with SMF mod, showing hundreds of html5 games.  Although I don't know, there may be some reason I'm not aware of why they would not work.

Well anyway, thanks for the info.  I certainly would use the arcade, if you decide to keep it   :D
