Well if anyone noticed Adobe ended their Flash plugin last month and then on January 12, 2021 they and others flipped the kill switch effectively ending all Flash content on the internet.

Millions of websites that use flash suddenly do not work and there are some very popular websites that made it a business such as for Games and other fun stuff.

Lucky for us, most our website is not built on flash. So far we have identified the Penny Arcade, our Chat room and a view preview players.

There is currently an open source project out there called Ruffle which is a flash emulator built on the rust programming language. They are committed to bringing back flash 100% and we have installed it on our flash content with some success as many of the Penny Arcade games work now.

Unfortunately our flash chat room is currently offline and not working, but we expect this to come back online once the Ruffle folks implement all of the features of flash in their emulator.

If you are interested in Ruffle here is a link:

Is this why I can't get the videos on the home page to play???

Shadows, that was a different problem but I am glad you mentioned it because we have some left over code in that video program from one of our older servers that apparently was causing an issue. Give it a try and see if it now works better.

I could not figure out why it was taking so long to load until I looked at the bottom of the code and saw the offending bug.

Update: It was affecting the rating script too - video ratings are now back and working.

THANK YOU!
