    So i had a little time today so i wrapped up some standalone flash games. No flash player required. Each game has flash embedded in it. Should work on ppc/intel 10.3 - 10.6 or higher. Here's what i packed up:

    Pacman

    Mortal Kombat:

    MegamanX:

    King of Fighters:

    Dragon Ball Z:

    Download the entire archive here: (roughly 50mb zip)

    Question. Would it be possible to do the same for Super Mario Sunshine 64?

    Nuclear Eagle getting this treatment would also be awesome. That was a great game.

    Cool. Rather than explain how to package standalone embedded flash games, i did this instead. Attached is a standalone flashplayer that i ripped out of another app and modified slightly. Just plop it in /Applications. The .app itself does nothing. Don't try to run it. Now download some .swf files. They can be games or old joe cartoon videos etc. Right click on the .swf file and choose open with "FlashPlayer". If the flash game/video is compatible with flash 9 or lower it will open a new window and run.

    EDIT: You will have to view page source to find the link to download the .swf files. See attached.

    After a little digging, I found out how to download individual .swf files from web pages.

    I remember playing this on my grandfather's XP box years back.

    Thanks again, wick. You're awesome.

    Unfortunately, my dual 450Mhz sawtooth doesn't like these.. I tried mortal kombat and it was pretty choppy. What mac's are you guys playing these on? I was hoping the sawtooth would be able to pull it off as I can play games like UT 2004 on it no problem.

    I guess I forgot how resource intensive flash was...

    2GHz DC G5, with plenty of RAM.

    I can't even run Super Mario 63 in high quality with the window maximized. Too laggy.

    Ain't it great?

    swf movies usually run at full speed (with the exception of heavy, more recent stuff) on my 2x1.5ghz MDD. Games like Heli Attack 3(does anyone remember this?) run perfectly. On my 1.33ghz ibook 12" it's acceptable as long as i don't resize the window. To stretch to full screen I always decrease my monitor resolution to drop as few frames as possible.

    The flash build with best frame rate for vector animations is probably 10.0.22.87 . There's definitely a forum topic about this in here, and by testing I pretty much came to the same conclusion.

    When it comes to flash games the nostalgia is real. Back then I used a 466mhz digital audio on the web to play flash content. I can't really imagine how patient I must've been, given how slow it is on such hardware.

    Oh yes.

    Did you ever play Jelly Battle? There were these fat jelly men, fighting each other on a keyboard, jumping on different keys, swinging handbags, planting landmines, firing lasers, even calling in airstrikes...

    Unfortunately, its creators shut it down a few years ago, and nobody's been able to get it back since.

    It's a shame it ran on such a terrible engine, along with all these other games...

    Jelly battle sounded familiar. I tried to see if I could find it and.. it's definitely no longer working :(. Did an image search just to see how it looked. Then..

    Ah! THAT! Yeah I definitely can't forget about this game! The nostalgia is even worse now. If only it was still online..

    There was that game, Interactive buddy, where you could make friends with buddy, play catch, or hurt him, play catch with grenades and be mean. I spent too much time playing this.

    Ohh, I've gotta look at that. Sounds interesting.

    I spent an unbelievable amount of time on this website growing up:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20091223225017/http://www.bumarcade.com/

    Come to think of it, that place is a goldmine for Flash games, if anyone wants to browse. For thousands of hours. Like I did. ;)

    It's all coming back, just looking at that home page...
