Hello,
I have a collection of games that I programmed in AS3, I still have the FLA and SWF sources, how can I display them on my site in 2021 when the browsers will no longer use Adobe Flash Player?
Thank you.

kglad didn't just mean to use the convert option to make them be HTML5 Canvas FLA. You would also need to convert the AS3 code into CreateJS compatible JavaScript. In some cases you will be able to edit a line to make the syntax be correct, but often you will need to do the same feature in a different way. One approach is to reuse all of the assets, but only use the AS3 version as a demo, and recreate all of the code from scratch.

Hello kglad,
I tried but it doesn't work, when the as3 script is commented out the images work but not the buttons, if I then uncomment the script I have an empty page.

Yes exactly! This is what I do. You can open the AS3 fla and copy the timeline in an HTML5 canvas fla and change all the code and sometime how things were done but it is not too complicated in my experience. Of course it depends what type of things were happening in the original fla.

Good luck on your conversion.

 

and Happy New Year.
