Hope everyone is staying safe. Wanted to give you an update in case you’ve been wondering how the “end of life” for Adobe Flash affects the software I create and that is still available for sale. For those who don’t know, as of January 12th Adobe, Windows and all web browsers have disabled Flash with a “kill code” that renders all .swf files unplayable in updated Flash players.
Long story short, I’ve started including a standalone Flash player of the same vintage as the 2003 compiler I use to make the software. It’s unaffected by the “kill code” and still runs my software just fine. No guarantee it will work on anything made with Flash software of a newer vintage, but it runs all of mine with no problem.
If you have previously purchased software from me and would like the player, please contact me at jgwicker at gmail dot com and I will make it available for you.
I am also in the process of making all my Etsy software also available on eBay in physical form, shipped on a thumb drive that includes the Flash player.
Thanks as always!
As much of a dumpster fire as 2020 was, I can find some things to be grateful for:
I successfully had my lipoma removed. I feel and look so much better without that NERF football stuck in the back of my neck.
Despite the impending heat death of Adobe Flash, I still had a fairly robust year of software sales, keeping things going financially.
Another completed year of sobriety. It still seems unreal that I haven’t taken a drink of alcohol in over two years.
I didn’t participate in any significant amount of drama…sobriety is likely a huge component of that.
My family has avoided COVID-19. We lost a couple of friends to complications related to the pandemic, but all of us will have emerged unscathed this year.
And most importantly, I have a close group of friends and family who are still around, still supportive, and who still mean more to me than just about anything else.Thanks as always. See you in 2021.
I haven’t mentioned this in a very long while but it’s still a thing that exists, so I’ll throw it out there…if you’ve ever had an inclination to support Greggo’s Game Shows, I do have a Ko-Fi account that you can find here:
Obviously considering everything that’s happened and considering the world right now I don’t expect a thing from this, but any and all support is definitely appreciated.
Have a great week!
I’m in the process of working on more pricing games for The Price is Right software, but things are going slowly, so I’ve decided to add them “a la carte” for now as they’re finished. Range Game is available now! Here’s a link to it in the Etsy shop:
As more games are available they’ll be added one by one, with “Pricing Game Pack 2” available once six are finished. But you can play Range Game in your game now! Thanks and enjoy!
Some folks were asking for this, and I had some time, so here’s a demo video for my Press Your Luck software!
If you’d like to pick up this software, you can find it in my Etsy shop here. Thanks for watching!
Got really busy yesterday so couldn’t get a video up, so here’s a long one! It’s more Three on a Match, this time from AniMinneapolis in 2015! Enjoy!
To celebrate the release of the software in the Etsy shop, this weekend’s flashback videos are all Three on a Match!
Here’s the earliest video I have, from all the way back at Ikkicon 2012. Enjoy!
I’ve decided to release Three on a Match a day early because well…we’re all at home anyway, right?
As per usual on big new releases, this will be 20% off through its first weekend…so through Sunday, April 12th.
Thanks as always! This weekend I’ll be highlighting some Three on a Match games from years past in case you’ve forgotten how the game is played!
From all the way back in 2003, here was the first Press Your Luck from Anime Central!
Thanks for joining us in a little time warp this weekend. Stay safe, everyone!
Thanks to the request of a frequent customer (and a lot of free time on my hands), Three on a Match software will be available in the Etsy shop beginning Friday, April 10th. The retail price will be $59.99, but as with all major releases now, it will be available at a 20% discount through its first weekend of release (and will be included in the current “Virtual Con” sale afterwards at a 15% discount).
