Flash Player is gone, nothing replaces it. Adobe have nothing to sell you. Still, good luck with your complaints strategy.

ok, great. so you are unhappy because you can't play the video game is what  i understand your issue is.

 

Flash is done, adobe announce this several years ago. They did what they could do by letting customers know years in advance with announcements, emails and webpages (here is the announcement made in 2017: https://blog.adobe.com/en/publish/2017/07/25/adobe-flash-update.html#gs.tw9i95.  The correct business practice when a product/service is discontinue is to let your customers know. Adobe did that, that is the opposite of shady, they were open and communicated with customers.  There is no BS of charging you money. The adobe flash player is/was free. You never paid for it. nobody did. flash player was free to download, install and update.

 

so, What would you like us to do about you not been able to play your video game? we did not make the game, what do you want to happen? do you think you maybe need to ask ther person that made the game if there is an html version? 

 

Last, i renamed your post to something more descriptive. 

 

cheers

Hi @Davo5EDF,

I'm afraid you'll lose that bet.

 

It's common knowledge among informed computer and Internet users that 3rd party plugins are potentially risky.  That's why they must be actively maintained with regular security patches & updates.  That's also why browser vendors felt plugins were too much trouble for everyone.  The major browsers began ending plugin support about 3 years ago with Java, Silverlight, QuickTime, RealPlayer, Shockwave and now Flash Player. 

 

Find another game to play.  You'll find plenty of great HTML5 games online.  Google is your friend.

 

Goodbye, good luck and stay warm!
