As far as I'm aware that is only applicable to the web-browser plugin version. Standalone/Projector should still work fine. At the very least 32.0.0.453 which is the last update I pushed is still working perfectly fine here. (haven't build/updated to 465 yet so I can't say anything about that)

Since 371 is also one I pushed I can try and see if it's still in a build cache of mine but don't keep your hopes up (and regardless; it really shouldn't matter for the standalone/projector version)

EDIT: Last build cache for that version was removed 6 months ago so I no longer have it and my backups for those only go back 1 month.

EDIT2: I just see that the date for the time bomb wasn't 01-01-2021 but a tad later this month so the projector might start failing later.

EDIT3: If the standalone/projector does indeed also end up containing said time-bomb, the next best solution I can think of is to use Ruffle browser addon/extension to play your flash content using your browser.

Yup. I was about to edit my post but: after doing some further digging, it turns out the arcane voodoo of ALSA is best consigned to the dustbin of history and it's time to finally get over my suspiciousness of pulseaudio: installing pulseaudio-alsa, deleting ~/.asoundrc entirely, and out of an abundance of paranoia symlinking /etc/asound.conf to /etc/alsa/conf.d/99-pulseaudio-default.conf fixed it. That basically just routes ALSA to pulseaudio, which is rather ironic given that pulseaudio supposedly sits on top of ALSA, but here we are. The problem wasn't with flashplayer at all, but with ALSA. Derp.

flashplayer-standalone sound works fine on my pure alsa system and has done so for years.

Getting alsa working correctly under pulseaudio / pipewire can be difficult though, ask on the forums of your distros for assistance.

I am also experiencing the problem of having no sound when playing anything. Like @Undeemiss, I am stumped at how to fix that. Running ldd /usr/bin/flashplayer doesn't seem to indicate any missing dependencies. It appears to be using ALSA, which is pretty arcane voodoo to me, and I'm also stumped at how to get it to work.

Undeemiss commented on 2022-01-16 06:33 (UTC)

When I used this to run Bloons TD 4 and Bloons TD 5, the player appeared not to be making any sound, despite both games having sound. I'm sure it's probably user error, but I wanted to ask here just in case there's a simple solution I'm unaware of (or there isn't one at all)

fyi: https://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_admin_guide.html

mms.cfg file location Linux /etc/adobe/ NOTE: Unlike Windows and macOS, the Linux player is in a directory named adobe, not in one named Macromed or Macromedia.

Suppressing EOL Uninstall Prompts In the latter half of 2020, as part of Flash Player's end of life (EOL) process, Adobe will start prompting customers to uninstall Flash Player. This prompt is optional and can be dismissed by the end user. To reduce friction in a managed installation environment, administrators can set either of the following properties in the client's mms.cfg to disable the prompt from appearing: AutoUpdateDisable = 1 Or EOLUninstallDisable = 1

This should be a solution without using (or searching for) an older version.

just confirming that it's still working, yay!

@krszalay unfortunately I've only kept the version 453, no previous binaries were saved. If you know a way to obtain it please let me know.

krszalay commented on 2021-01-04 20:51 (UTC)

could we revert to 32.0.0.371? that's the last not time-bombed version according to Wikipedia
