How to continue playing Flash games after December 2020


As many of you know, Google Chrome, FireFox, Edge and IE will no longer support Adobe Flash.  There are other options that are supposed to be work-arounds to keep playing flash.

I will post those options here with guides to help.


1) Download the Pale Moon browser.

Pale Moon has said they will continue supporting Flash player for the foreseeable future. You can download here: https://www.palemoon.org/


2) Disable updates for Google Chrome, FireFox and Adobe Flash.

Google Chrome and Adobe: To do this type msconfig in your Windows search bar.

Adobe Flash:

Go to Control Panel. If you do not see flash player listed click view by to icons. Once you see the icon, click to open.

Click on the "Updates" tab and choose to manage updates.

Click on “Notify me to install updates” or "Never check for updates".

 thumbnail_Flash 06.jpg  Click on Updates.


thumbnail_Flash 07.jpg  Click change update settings.


 thumbnail_Flash 08.jpg   Click on “Notify me to install updates” or "Never check for updates". Then close.


FireFox: Open FireFox, then open the menu and click on options. Scroll down to FireFox Updates.  Check the “Check for updates but let you choose to install them”.

3) You can also install SuperNova SWF enabler.  You will be able to access SuperNova on all of your preferred web destinations, and hopefully keep playing your favorite games - forever.

4) Another option (copied from an affiliate site)

More information to possibly avoid "the end of flash support".

There are some projects that provide flash "emulation", one of them (made by a website that had a lot of flash games from over the past 20 years) offers a demo: http://ruffle-rs.s3-...uilds/web-demo/

It also appears that Ruffle is available as a browser extension, https://ruffle.rs/#releases that your users could install.

On the last link, that page says Chrome. This isn't "flash", so it should continue to work in chrome regardless. It's just an emulator that can run flash files without using Adobe Flash.

Ruffle is a Flash Player emulator written in Rust. Ruffle runs natively on all modern operating systems as a standalone application, and on all modern browsers through the use of WebAssembly. Leveraging the safety of the modern browser sandbox and the memory safety guarantees of Rust, we can confidently avoid all the security pitfalls that Flash had a reputation for. Ruffle puts Flash back on the web, where it belongs - including iOS and Android!

Designed to be easy to use and install, users or website owners may install the web version of Ruffle and existing flash content will "just work", with no extra configuration required. Ruffle will detect all existing Flash content on a website and automatically "polyfill" it into a Ruffle player, allowing seamless and transparent upgrading of websites that still rely on Flash content.

Ruffle is entirely an open source project and maintained by volunteers. We're all passionate about the preservation of internet history, and were drawn to working on this project to help preserve the many websites and plethora of content that will no longer be accessible when users can no longer run the official Flash Player. If you would like to help support this project, we welcome all contributions of any kind - even if it's just playing some old games and seeing how well they run.
