    Anyone with solutions for the death of Adobe FP? Games were using this dont load/work as of today and cant find an acceptable replacement.

    Sidebar: I only have average+ tech skills, but this might be a reason the ratings on GC keep going byebye and then mysteriously reappear? And Yes Ive cleaned out my history on Chrome several times.
    Adobe PF. Why?

    The GatorCountry issues are being blamed on moving to new servers and there is little you can do to work around them. Hopefully, the move will be completed soon and the site regain some stability.

    A quick search found this article, Adobe Flash Player Says Goodbye: A Look Back at Its Iconic Journey and How You Can Still Play Flash Games. Here is a bit on how to keep using Flash Player from the article:

    How to still play Flash games
    Adobe is no longer supporting Flash Player and so do Web browsers, including Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. However, there are still ways through which you can evoke your nostalgia and play your old Flash games on your system. The Internet Archive website, that is a known place for archived webpages, provides a dedicated Flash library with over 2,400 items. It includes Flash games as well as animations. You don't need to have Flash plug-in installed on your browser to play Flash content from that library.

    An open-source project called Ruffle is also in development that allows users to experience Flash content in a Web browser, without installing a plug-in. It comes as a Flash Player emulator that natively runs animated content. The project is also providing support to Web developers to convert their existing Flash animations into JavaScript.

    For people who want to run Flash content, a site known as Newgrounds has used Ruffle to serve older animated content. A Newgrounds Flash Player is also available for Windows machines that you can install on your PC or laptop to play Flash content from your browser, even without using the traditional Flash Player plug-in.

    I, for one, will not miss it. It was like a giant, gaping hole to let nefarious actors run remote code on your PC.
