Flash Games in BigBox mode


Recommended Posts

Helllo, is there a way to start Flash Games (.swf) in BigBox Mode?

I tested the AxLaunchbox Plugin but this works only in LB.

Are there any tutorials to do this? Could not find one.

Like to ad some single games from the Flashpoint Set.

First, download the Flash Player Projector from this page (scroll down a bit, to the Windows section)
https://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/debug_downloads.html

In LaunchBox, go to Manage Emulators, click "Add...". Give it a name, and browse to the .exe file

Import your flash games as you would with any other emulator. Be sure to check that you have only included .swf files, at the last stage of importing.
As far as I know, none of these games in the LaunchBox database, so you'll have to add most of the information manually. If you do, consider adding it to the database as well so other users can benefit from it.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Edit: After writing the post I saw that some flash games have indeed been added to the database, but as "Web Browser" games, not Flash games.

Thank you vor your short Tutorial.

Works fine for me! The Games are starting and playable, even in BigBox.

Wen i press ESC to exit, then the flashplayer does just minimize the window not exit direct to BigBox.

Is there a way to exit direct back to BB.

Found the fault.

Think there was something like a hidden charactere wen i copy/pasted the script.

I wrote it now by hand and now it works perfect.

Thank you vor your help an have a nice Sunday!

 

Don`t know much about the LB Database and uploading media to it.

Will take a look wen i`ve got the time.

Thanks for the tutorial. I am been doing some research on how to generate screenshots of the title screens. Didn't have much success yet but there seems to be a way with a tool called swfrenderer. Maybe we could get this to work to add at least some screenshots.

For any screenshots on pc I always use lightshot. (https://app.prntscr.com/en/index.html)

Just press print screen on your keyboard, select what you want to screenshot, and press ctrl+s to save it as a png :)

I'm happy I could help!

آه ، سيئ ، كان يجب أن أختبره :)
أسفل السطر الثاني ، أضف "رجوع"
