Flash emulator

Dear larsiusprime and anyone else who happens to be working on this Flash Player emulator:

I commend you for taking the initiative and trying to find a way for Flash content to be preserved for future generations; however, I would like to ask you one thing:

Why is it that, according to the GitHub page for this project, nothing has been done whatsoever except for the addition of the readme file a year ago? Especially now that we have less than 500 days left until the death of Flash?

If you're making any progress, please let us know. (Or if you are posting status updates somewhere public and I just don't know it, maybe make that easier to find?) Seeing that the latest update was a year ago isn't exactly making me confident about the future of my favorite Flash content. :(

Thanks for sharing! :)

I tried watching a Strong Bad Email with it... looks like there's still some audio/video synchronization issues and visual bugs that need to be addressed. I assume that this has to do with the ActionScript support not being implemented yet as the main page states. But at least I know that there is a project like this that is still being worked on! :)

Thanks again!

They'll work things out, don't worry.

I feel better now that I know about the other Flash emulator that wuyuansheng linked to, at least. That one may not be fully functional yet, but at least it exists and I know it's still under active development and functional enough at this point that there's hope of them completing it before 2021.

And, while I'd like for it to be working properly eventually, it's a little amusing to watch the somewhat glitched-up version of the first sbemail I ever watched - the Compy's screen was green with red blocks behind the text that showed up earlier than it should have, Bubs' face was randomly green at one point, one easter egg's audio can play over the other, etc. I should try it with other sbemails and see what happens. :)

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
