The Death of Flash and the Future of MC? And why renew? Puffin Browser an option?

My MC subscription renewal just came up. I'm holding off on renewing. Why start new games that will may die in mid-game on December 31st when Browsers will remove and no longer support the Flash extension option?

Does anyone know of a plan B for MC or will it die New Years Eve?

Has the NewSheriffInTown already left town? I've messaged him but as of yet have not received an answer.

The Puffin Browser 'claims' it will still support Flash in 2021. The ads in the free version are a real pain and no way will I pay MC and Puffin to play - but - if Puffin does support Flash then I may at lest be able to play out any open games.

< Microsoft Edge will continue to require approval for Flash on a site-by-site basis. By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash. >

< Flash Player blocked as "out of date" (Target: All Chrome versions - Jan 2021)
Summary: Flash Player will be marked as out of date and will be blocked from loading.
Rationale: Align with Adobe's announced plan to end support. >

< With Puffin Cloud Isolation - Flash Is Forever! People say that Flash games are not safe. Browsers cannot run Flash games beyond 2020. They were right till we make the impossible possible.

With Puffin, people around the world can play Flash games safely on their browsers. No need to install any software, any browser extensions. No additional settings are required. Just visit the Puffin Flash Store on your browser, and it simply works. >

Hi.

BETA games will continue to work after Dec 31 because they do not use Flash.

We are trying our best to integrate the BETA engine with the current website's scoreboard and points system.

Most likely all Flash games will stop working on Dec 31.

Firefox (version 8.0.1) continues to have flash support. I played in a Flash game this AM. It seems as long as you do not shut down the flash pages... except maybe the start a new game page... we might be able to finish the ongoing games.

Just a thought...

Here's a link to it.

Is it helpful to point out at this stage that you can go either East or West to change 'colour' to 'color' - so long as you travel far enough? …probably not. Happy New Year! :beers:

Very helpful indeed - that is, until you start wondering how on earth to sail eastwards from Britain - you need to sail an awfully long way northwards or southwards before being able to really sail eastwards.... Otherwise you get stuck somewhere in the Baltic Sea, where it's värv or tsvet etc. that counts

So the "Home" tab isn't opening up now - is that curtains for our current games?

It looks like it! And I have that bright red TURNS icon staring me in the face!

Must say, the new beta system seems pretty damn good to me so far. Easier to change colours. None of that faffing around enabling flash. Tea and medals for all involved I think

If I was picking nits, it'd be good if the 'Turns' counter reflected the new beta games rather than the old ones - but that's about the only thing I've come across so far that isn't tickety-boo

And that new map of the US - it's massive! I've got no idea what I'm doing on it.

What happens to all of the tournaments and the buy-ins for tournaments that never started?

Aha - one other thing by way of constructive criticism - on the old system you could put in a comment when you set up a game (I often used it on 4 and 5 player games to specify No Diplomacy). I can't find any way of doing that on setting up a new beta game.

Tournaments that never started will eventually be started using the new game engine. So they buy-ins will still be valid when we merge the Tournament games with the BETA engine.

Thanks. We will add "NOTES" to the list of things to do.

Very impressed with Beta so far, well done MC team!

In terms of tournaments, when can we expect those to be open again for joining and playing? I can't find any tab for that as of now
