Sonucais's News

Posted by Sonucais - February 21st, 2021


As you already know, I made a guide about how to get Flash working with Newgrounds Flash Player. I've been reading so many comments about people who just can't get Newgrounds Player even with the latest update.


I've been developing an extra solution to help those who just can't run Flash anymore on Newgrounds. It does not require having Flash installed or anything else, since it uses the projector you execute itself.


Flash Forwarder Tools will open any Flash content from Newgrounds by providing it's link or id submission. It also features a submission randomizer (with rating filter) and a quick access to the three last played. It can't use the Newgrounds API but it can easily play all the Flash content on the portal.


Downloads:


I need someone to confirm if the MacOS version works. I know Big Sur have permission issues.


Version 2.0 is in progress. It will have a modern redesign, categories, favorites and more.


ChangeLog for version 1.1

  • Renamed the project to Flash Forwarder Tools
  • Now uses Flash Player 32.0.0.465
  • MacOS Support (Kudos to @Markanime)


ChangeLog for version 1.2

  • Disabled Adult filter by default
  • Added download SWF button
  • Minor cosmetic changes


ChangeLog for version 1.3

  • Search games with keywords (kinda)
  • Minor cosmetic changes

It has been 4967 days since Furry Random Stuffs 4 should've been released... What happened?


The movie was finished but never published. Why? As I was saying last year I'd been fighting a hard depression for years. FRS4 was going to be a collab that had at least 1 clip from @Dan-Dark, @RupeeClock, @SuperColoroid, @rebaz and from some others I can't remember their names because I lost some of my memories!


So, what now? Better late than never. FRS4 is being released this month on 31th but as a solo project. I'm adapting old content to be more fresh, widescreen adapted and sprite-free. I'm adding new content from recent years as well (I don't animate much anyway).


This animation will work with no problem with Ruffle. I'm working hard.


Edit: Seems like the deadline for the jam extended one more month so I will not rush it.


That's all. Thanks for reading.

📢 Newgrounds Player 1.0.6 is now out! Unistall your previous version and install the latests version.


📢 I made Flash Forwarder Tools, an alternative to NG Flash Player for those who can't get Flash work! For Windows and MacOS.


I personally can't recommend using the browser Flash plugins (Chrome/Firefox) anymore, it can be risky for your computer from now on. Use the Newgrounds Player instead! It works all the API functions, such as medals, saves, leaderboards... And don't forget to enable it on your Account Settings. If you need to play offline content, check the three first points on Extra Stuff at the end of the post.

If nothing here seems to work, read the comments! I'm trying to help people!


A BETTER SOLUTION


There's another workaround suggested by @dclxvi-satan and other guys on Twitter / Reddit. Tested it on my laptop (Flash Player version 32.0.0.445) and Newgrounds Player worked perfectly!



C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg

Extract the mms.cfg file to BOTH System32 AND SysWOW64 directories!

🐧 @NeonSpider shared where to place the mms.cfg on Linux. All details inside.

🦊 @APace has also posted instructions for Firefox users to enable Flash, including Mac users.

🤓 @Alexander auto-patching solution.


Enabling Flash after 12012021 https://ironrage.fandom.com/wiki/Enabling_Flash_after_12012021


For Browsers it would be:


%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\System\mms.cfg
%localappdata%\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\System\mms.cfg

@spiele-umsonst made an interesting post about making flash files run again into software. Here's the post with some extra mms.cfg tricks.


🔰 How to Make Windows Show File Extensions

ERROR 1722. WHAT CAN I DO?!


What is this? Why is this even happening?


Alright, if I'm not wrong, this only happens on older Windows versions. If you are on Windows 8/10 this should not be happening. This problem seems to be happening because your computer does have a problem with your current Flash Player installation, probably because it's broken or not fully uninstalled. This Flash Player installation has nothing to do with the browser plugins.


What you need to do is simple, totally uninstall it. But how? Well, I can't tell because I didn't have this problem but I did a research on this error. Follow these steps and we MIGHT fix it. User @JustSimon23 confirmed this worked for him.


iu_224615_1253649.png


Try using the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller (close everything and open as Administrator). Full instructions here.


Remove everything inside these folders (not the folder, just the content inside):


C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\
%appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player
%appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player

Restart your computer and try installing "install_flash_player_32_active_x.msi" (it's on your Newgrounds Player installation folder) again.


🔔 If it keeps failing, keep reading.


Right click on "install_flash_player_32_active_x.msi" and click uninstall. This step might do something.


Open Windows Registry (regedit) and delete the below keys if you find them:


Be sure to know what are you doing here!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersions\"10.0"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\SafeVersions\"11.0"


iu_224627_1253649.png


🔔 Some people deleted all the numbers in there and seemed to fix the problem but just delete these two and if the installation keeps failing, try deleting all of them.


Restart your computer and try installing install_flash_player_32_active_x.msi now. If fails, try compatibility mode (Right click → Properties → Compatibility tab).


I think at this point, it should be working. If it isn't, is your Windows up to date?

Please, share your experiences with this error guide as you will be helping others.


FlowKen9 says: To solve the error 1722 problem, you'll need 7zip installed for this (tried it with winrar, it don't do it). Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\newgrounds\newgrounds player, right click the .msi included, go to 7zip, open archive. scroll down until you see a data1.cab file, and drag that to your desktop. open the cab file, drag the file inside it to your desktop. Right click it, open properties, navigate to compatibility tab, checkmark the compatibility mode box, set the drop down menu to windows vista, click ok. Now you run the .exe file you took from the cab file, and there you go, Error 1722 problem SOLVED!!!!!

ORIGINAL BLOG ENTRY


Today I found out I couldn't play more Flash content even with the Newgrounds Player.

Did a little research on the forums and I wasn't the only one. So what's happening?!


iu_224174_1253649.jpg


During this year, Adobe or Microsoft (who tf cares) released some "security" updates through Windows Update. As far as I know, there are two updates which include something that makes Flash not load properly (image above).


What they basically did is check the Windows date value and block the content. That means that if you change your date to 2020 it will work again even with these security updates (because Flash shouldn't be dead by then).


BUT SONUCAIS I DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE THE DATE

EVERYTIME I WANT TO PLAY FLASH CONTENT! >:(


I told you already! Let's uninstall these updates!

Alternative: Or you can use RunAsDate (Run a program with the specified date/time)


Assuming you are on Win8/10, go to Windows Update Update History Uninstall Updates.


Uninstall the Security Updates for Adobe Flash Player one by one from most recent to older until it works. I had to uninstall two updates. When I found this problem I was on 32.0.0.445 (you can check this on NG Player by right clicking).


iu_224175_1253649.jpg


Uninstalling one update (October 2020) will downgrade to 32.0.0.387. Still didn't work.

Uninstalled one more update (June 2020). Now it's perfectly working on 32.0.0.330.


So yeah, the most stable version working seems to be 32.0.0.330.

This is a quick announcement about Suenio. We are updating it to version 3.0. We've listened the community and we're actually adding new features to the game prototype.


Suenio was developed back in March in a 48 hours game jam. We updated things that couldn't make it into the first version and then we uploaded it to Newgrounds. There will be tons of improvements in the new update:


  • Full mouse support
  • When clicking Suenio he will pause for 1.5 seconds
  • Camera improvements and bug fixes
  • You are now able to unchain objects
  • New item: Sand Clock, adds time to your life
  • New element: Water, it wakes you up
  • Retry again dialog to keep playing or go to the main menu
  • Optimization for slower computers (removed unnecessary filters)
  • Options menu with several options such scanlines or fps
  • How to play is being replaced by a tutorial stage
  • Two more stages? Three maybe?
  • Additional Ruffle version?


This update will be released this month and I have another game still in development to upload next month: Wait For The Waiters.

Good afternoon Newgrounds,


Just like I said on my last entry, I would start uploading more content to Newgrounds once again.


Last weeks I've been joining gamejams and I already uploaded the Isoulated Soundtrack to the Audio Portal.


Today I've something bigger that also came from a gamejam, Suenio. As the author of the game with the help from Markanime and Moises9000yt, I'm very happy with the final result.

I hope you will like it. Let me know what you think about it.


PLAY SUENIO NOW

Aloha Newgrounds, and happy new year everyone.


I've had some busy years fighting depression, surviving modern life and responsibilities. It has been over a decade that I stopped submitting stuff to Newgrounds but studying gamedev by my own and practicing secretly without showing anything (because of a toxic harsh self-criticism).


A new decade is starting and I'd like to change some things. First, being more positive. Secondly, give it a shoot on my dreams now that I've the skills. And finally, be more active on Newgrounds once again. That's why I just uploaded El Silla: Arcade Edition soundtrack to the Audio Portal. Enjoy!


El Silla - Arcade Edition: Main Menu

El Silla - Arcade Edition: Arcade Mode

El Silla - Arcade Edition: Cirno's Theme

El Silla - Arcade Edition: Try Again

El Silla - Arcade Edition: Choose your fighter!

El Silla - Arcade Edition: VS Mode

El Silla - Arcade Edition: Classic Medley

El Silla - Arcade Edition: Who is Calling?


This game was developed by MarkAnime and it's available on several platforms.

If you'd like to know future gamedev updates from me, follow this twitter account.

Busy, bye.

Hi.


Posted by Sonucais - April 24th, 2012


I don't usually make posts like this but I had been told about a remake of Puyo Pop Fever to play online created by PuyoNexus.net and it's actually pretty well done. The game itself comes without characters, music and just some custom art to play it.

I've made a package of mods I've seen around and included them inside this rar already ready to play it.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1104368/Puyo/PuyoVS.rar

Have fun.
