Flash to HTML5 Progress! 07/13/2021

by Joe

I’ve received a few messages lately from readers who’d like to go back and read past scenes that are currently inaccessible due to still being in Flash format. Just wanted to let everyone know that I am definitely working on converting them all to HTML5 – though it is a slow, involved process. Good news is that I’m almost done Chapter 1! Scenes 1-19 are done, so 2 more to go! Then, Chapters 2-9… oh, boy.

If you want to keep track of the conversion process for some reason, here’s a Google Spreadsheet I’m using to see where I am :D

Flash Scenes to Convert Spreadsheet

Enjoy Scene 49 – “Sentinel-dipity”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates!

You can also support The Pocalypse by being a Patreon Patron! Thank you! :D

Have you considered instead promoting one of the new flash players instead? Would seem easier. Something like Ruffle? https://ruffle.rs

@Kizz – !!!! I could kizz you, seriously. I’ll look into it! :D

@Kizz – Just loaded it into the website (surprisingly easy!) but, unfortunately, ActionScript 3.0 – the code used to make the Flash scenes – isn’t supported yet :( I’m sure it will be one day, though! In the meantime, I’ll keep an eye on Ruffle updates and keep converting for now :D

Seems like Cashs Luck has finally run out!
Whatever happens next to him i am really looking forward to it.

@Joe Have you tried Supernova Player. Perhaps it will help you solve your problems with the Flash comics.

@Pablo Atristain – Thank you for the suggestion! I’ll definitely check this one out, too! :D

O god George is going to moral-compass this into a fiasco, right?
Like there are too many Cash threads out there untied for him to get killed right away like this. XD
O MAN WHAT A SETUP

Thanks for the Flash to HTML5 update! And thank you for your continued dedication to making this comic!

after reading the comments i did some research and found this article :
https://nosamu.medium.com/flash-player-emulators-how-to-play-swfs-in-2021-and-beyond-d56c3899b7e6

I knew about all of them aside from Awayfl so i tried chapter 2 episode 1 and chapter 3 episode 1 on Awayfl latest dev build website and it worked !!

you can test it here :
testing website : https://awayfl-gametester.netlify.app/

github : https://github.com/awayfl/awayfl-gametester

strangly enough their “official” testing website (https://exponenta.games/games/AFL/) from the awayfl main dev github tutorial to embed it to your website (https://github.com/eXponenta/away-player-embed) doesn’t work that great.

You can either compile the latest build ( here’s a tutorial : https://github.com/veso266/flash-loader or maybe ask a dev friend to do it for you ) or you can wait a few days?..weeks? for the pre-compiled files to get updated.

I’ve being a silent viewer for years now, checking weekly for new episodes but never leaving any message because am quite the introvert that only comment to answer or help someone and i hope this one will help you save some time for you to enjoy with family and friend and prehaps making more thepocalypse episodes :)

sorry for the horrible english .

@Znayx – Thank you and everyone for reading! :D
@diabolo96 – Awesome! Thank you for the research and message! Just tried Awayfl and indeed it does work :D :D :D I’m gonna look into embedding it into the site – stay tuned!
