Unfortunately, there's no current (legal) way to disable the Adobe Flash killswitch, and I would obviously not recommend trying to illegally "crack" copyrighted games unless you want angry lawyers coming your way. (It would also require a great deal of programming experience.) The Flash shutdown really, really sucks for older Flash games, including ...

Disclaimer: This suggestion is dangerous and can leave you vulnerable to security exploits. You can download an old version of Firefox which does not have the Flash killswitch from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ You can download an old Flash version which does not have the killswitch from https://adobe_flash_player.en.downloadastro.com/...

Although you may not be able to, it's possible the websites themselves will be able to, using the Rust language project called Ruffle, a Flash Emulator. You described it as a local-emulator, but that's not all it is. Ruffle is a Flash Player emulator written in Rust. Ruffle runs natively on all modern operating systems as a standalone application, and on ...

What I didn't know, however, is that apparently Adobe will flip a killswitch and disable Flash entirely, regardless of your browser version. This will most likely work, as long as the browser version is old enough not to have the killswitch-enabled version of the Flash plugin, so anything prior to ~2018 should work. We won't know for sure until the EOL date ...

You can find old versions of Firefox bundled with old versions of Flash Player. Firefox is open source and this kind of redistribution is completely legal. As for Flash, this might be illegal or it might be gray area (illegal but tolerated) as happens with most abandonware, or even legal (fair use for research?). Laws are different in different jurisdictions ...

You can glide with the elytra by pressing 'spacebar' while falling in the air, this will activate/open the elytra and you will start to glide. However, you can also use rockets to propel yourself forward and increase your speed when gliding with the elytra. You can craft rockets with longer flight time, using these with the elytra will also keep your ...

Is it possible to play minecraft with a single account on different platforms (mac, windows and Linux) without purchasing again on each platform. These 3 platforms all support Java Edition. Download and install the appropriate binaries for given platform, enter your login details in the launcher and play. Only one can be logged in at a time, but there's no ...

You can use AutoHotKey. The script in question would be: !Tab:: return to disable the key, or to rebind it something like (rebinding to F8): !Tab::F8 Use F9 to toggle on Alt + Tab: IsEnabled := 1 F9:: if (IsEnabled = 1) { IsEnabled := 0 } else if(IsEnabled = 0) { IsEnabled := 1 } return #If IsEnabled !Tab:: return

Bypassing regional pricing with a VPN is usually regarded as unethical and generally against the terms of service, but not illegal -- i.e., your account could possibly be terminated (though it is unlikely), but you probably won't be prosecuted, fined, or sued. For games like Minecraft, which are not strictly region-locked, it is true that after redemption, ...

VirtualBox can’t efficiently run “heavy” applications like Minecraft, as it is emulating an entire computer, which takes a lot of processing power for that process alone. Additionally, VirtualBox can only use around a third of the host computer’s power, in order that it won’t cause the host to crash. But don’t be alarmed, as VirtualBox will always run worse ...

Depending on how much your stepfather wants to keep playing FarmVille 2 and if you can't get it running with the launcher, there is one way that might still allow Flash to function, although I'm not 100% sure and it depends on how the kill switch is triggered. This blog from September 2020 says that the removal of Flash from Windows machines will happen via ...

Yes, it is possible to play Minecraft Java Edition on Windows 10. Simply go to the official Minecraft website, click on the Get Minecraft button or expand the games menu and select Minecraft, select computer, select PC and finally, select Java Edition. If you already have a Minecraft account, just click download it again.

I would guess Steam does not allow you to download games just via the command line. There are loads of things I don't know how steam would deal with, like checking your licence to the game, is you were just to download a steam game via command line without having a steam install on your machine. So I would say, before bashing your head on a problem like this,...

Try disabling Windows 10's Game Mode Despite Microsoft's claims to the contrary, it seems that some people have been getting poorer gaming results with 'Game Mode' enabled. What's more, it's enabled by default - so if you've done a fresh install of Windows 10, it's probably still turned on. To disable it: Click Start -> 'Settings' Cog Click 'Gaming' ...

This problem is likely because some app is stealing focus from the game. In some cases, this can be solved by using Fullscreen mode or Borderless Fullscreen (also known as Borderless Windowed, Windowed Fullscreen, or similar). Unfortunately, it seems neither worked for you. I used to have a similar issue with a different game (Metro Exodus). The game would ...

If this problem ever occurs to anyone else, just go Options > Controller Setup > Redefine Controls > Foot controls You'll see this: Like I said, to recruit I had to aim at a gang member and press G. If you look at the image, you can see there are two alternate controls for aiming (del and capslock). When I use del to aim rather than rmb, it works. ...

I had this issue before, so I used Xpadder*. It is a great software for programming input on your controller so that games on the PC recognise the DS4 input. It will allow you to use your PS4 controller on PC if you're playing steam or using emulators. * I have no affiliation with the software or the team surrounding it.

Have you tried the following things? Forcing the game program to use only a single CPU core via Task Manager or Process Explorer Disabling (via Configuration screen > Device Manager) one of the two graphics cards. Running an MD5/sha1 check of the files, especially the executable. To get a file-hash in powerShell, execute: Get-FileHash /path/to/th6/...

What you are looking for, does not exist in Windows 10.

As stated in another answer, you cannot transfer profile stats, however there are two accounts used in Minecraft on Windows 10. #1 is the Windows Store MS account you have signed in on your PC to purchase Minecraft. #2 is the Xbox/Windows Live account you used to sign in once Minecraft is launched. In your case, you used the same account for both purposes. ...

It seems like this is impossible. However, you can press your Pick Block button (defaults to middle mouse button) while looking at a block to get the block you are currently looking at in item form. This may help you identify what block it is.

Try using a a Xbox One controller USB cable. Connect your controller and PC to the USB and see if that works. If not, something might be physically wrong with the controller. Try other controllers if you can.

Java Edition, by the nature of Java, runs on any desktop OS. You can download it from the Minecraft website by selecting Computer -> PC. Your purchased copy of the game is associated with the account you sign-in to, meaning you can re-download it as many times as you like on any computer you like

Something you might've not tried is finding the folder manually. Go to "This pc">(drive windows is installed on)> "Users">(your user), Now make sure that in the "view" tab in explorer, that "hidden items" checkbox is checked. A folder named "App data" should appear, and it's translucent. Open it, ...

You have tagged this question with minesweeper and windows-10, but since Windows 10 doesn't ship with Minesweeper, I'm assuming you're talking about Microsoft Minesweeper, which you can download from the Microsoft Store. In Microsoft Minesweeper, there are multiple ways to perform a chord: Double click/tap Ctrl + click/tap (Touchscreen only) tap Note that ...

Using a VPN has fixed the problem, at least for now. I installed the free trial version of ProtonVPN, and GT downloaded successfully via the Xbox Beta app. One wart is that you have to connect to a VPN server in the same region as your Xbox region. The free ProtonVPN connects you to a random server AFAIK, so you may have to keep trying until you get one ...

The problem is that Dark Souls does not support resolutions other than 1280x720. Even though the game lets you choose another resolution, it will simply scale the image to fit the resolution. I tried ticking the option 'Full-screen' in the scaling mode and nothing happened also. There's two (possible) reasons for that: Since the game is already scaling ...

Some laptops have a 'FunctionLock' key, which would lock/unlock these keys. This may be the issue. The functionlock key looks like a lock with the letters FN within. You would have to press it with the FN key held down. Look around on your keyboard and see if you can find it!

The issue in question was only able to be reproduced while I was using a Radeon 5750 (it's worth noting that back when I originally bought the game I had an Nvidia card of that era, which worked fine). When I upgraded to a GTX1060 the issue disappeared, so this appears to have been an issue related to incompatibility with either the graphics card itself, ...
