Welcome to the Adobe Flash memorial thread. You can discuss your memories with Flash games and list the games you've played until its ultimate ending on 12 January 2021.

I experienced Flash for the 1st time in Spring 2007. Below here is a list of select Flash games I've ever played.

Prior to Flash's total disappearence, I downloaded 52 SWF files and an older version of Flash Player (version 11) to keep my nostalgic feelings running. Flashpoint doesn't want to work properly, while Ruffle runs games in a not so smooth performance.

Used it back in school, when it was still Macromedia Flash.

Some versions of Flash would let you export games & programs as .exe files.

Flash is still around, but under a new name, & not as a browser plug in.

I vastly remember that many streaming services require flash plugin to play video and Netflix required Silverlight to play contents before replaced with HTML5.

I play flash games in late 90s and early 2000s.

What is the replacement for flash.

Did they confirm anything about what the new thing is as an alternate program?.

For web development you’re supposed to use JavaScript & HTML 5. Don’t know about animation.

A Flash replacement called Ruffle has been in development for quite a while. It's not perfect and doesn't yet work on everything, but it's the closest thing we have right now.

No. It's just a Flash Player emulator.
If you still want to make animations, you'll still have to use Adobe's software, Animate CC.
