Will LEGO Flash Games still be playable after 2020?

Recommended Posts

So yeah, adobe is discontinuing flash in 2020. Will the old LEGO flash games still be playable? Or will they just completely vanish from existence?

While web browsers are going to increasingly block flash content, it will still be possible to download the games and play them offline if you've got flash installed.

At Biomedia Project we were also looking into the possibility of building an html wrapper that would allow the games to still be played in a browser, but it'd be a big undertaking, so I'm not sure if/when that idea will come to fruition.

Technically, yes, you can download the files from BMP and play the games via the projector. Some games need a simple server to work, but you can install, for example, Python 3 and type the following on the command line to start your server:

cd <GAME_FOLDER>
python3 -m http.server 8000

Then, if you open the address http://localhost:8000/Launcher.swf on the projector, you  should be able to play the game.

There is a HTML5-based Flash Player developed originally by Mozilla employees (I think), but I can't remember its name :sad:...

P.S.: Sorry for my English.
