=== Problems Encountered ===
 +
* Can't find C:\Program on PATH.
  
* <del>The Javascript used by Galleries doesn't seem to work in newer IE. Curation guide might need to specify replacing the gallery's Javascript with code to create the <code><object></code> tag. This appears to because of a use of VBScript. VBScript can be reenabled via registry, or it might be cleaner to replace the JS.</del> VBScript and galleries work fine as-is in Flashpoint Secure Player.
+
* Exception "Exception":
* Some older Atmosphere worlds don't work in the plugin. Newer worlds (including galleries) won't work fully in the standalone player.
 
* Low FPS. Can seemingly be fixed by changing "Throttle when not active". Hardware acceleration can be added by editing a text file, but it results in oddities in the tic tac toe world (http://www.it-quadrat.de/ttt/ttt3d/ttt.aer)
 
* Cannot point plugin directly at an <code>.aer</code> file, an <code><object></code> tag must be used. (This is an original Adobe Atmosphere limitation)
 
* Some worlds automatically close chat. Some other worlds put useful information in the chat. The chat open/closed preference is saved, so worlds with chat should probably have some code to open chat embedded.
 
* Excessive caching may be a possibility.
 
* Stairs are tricky to climb. Could be related to missing avatars? Might want to include default avatar in htdocs.

* DLLs from Windows XP + Internet Explorer 6 are installable: mstime.dll for time2, datime.dll for time
 +
* IE11 on Windows 10 with DLLs installed and registry entry seems to have issues with transparency.

==== Notes ====
 
Browser plugins (at least the NPAPI one, didn't check ActiveX) seem to look for Pulse by using ShGetFolderPathA to find CSIDL_FLAG_CREATE | CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES if that function exists (and if not, looking at a Registry entry).
 
 
 
Some files seem to need a command sent to the plugin (for example, Fozzie needs "play obj=Dummy01 pkg=assets/fozzie/Package2.pws transition=0.30 heading=yes behave=joke"). The NPAPI version of the plugin looks like it relies on LiveConnect, which might not be supported in Basilisk.

Latest revision as of 18:34, 31 July 2021

This is a list of web game technologies that we hope to support in the future. If you'd like to help us add one of these technologies to Flashpoint, please join the #plugin-chat channel in our Discord.

Please add new technologies in alphanumeric order.

Here are some places to find more technologies to add to Flashpoint:

For plugins which have been successfully added to Flashpoint, see Technologies to Add/Added Technologies.

Flatland Rover

Downloads

Examples

FreeHand

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_FreeHand (please note the article makes no mention of the plugin, but it appears to arise from that)

Also called Shockwave Graphics Player, or, like the other Shockwave plugins, just Shockwave.

Downloads

Examples

All the sites with the icon FreeHand on Macromedia.gif here. Please note you have to click on the categories. These examples have been saved:

FreeHand Error.png

All three buttons make the plugin stop working.

Google Native Client

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • "[6708:11872:0517/190417:ERROR:nacl_process_host.cc(215)] DuplicateHandle() failed" on Chromium 40
  • .nexe and .pexe files get downloaded by the browser, but don't start.
  • Slimjet 10 can't see the PNaCl compiler plugin when running through a proxy. (See chrome://components) (That was because the compiler was not in the user folder)

Grail

Wikipedia page

Downloads

SourceForge

Examples

Official demos

Problems Encountered

  • "TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories:" error when trying to run Grail Solved.
  • "An exception occurred during applet loading : exceptions.TypeError: compile, argument 1: expected string without null bytes, string found" error on all official Grail demo applets, except for Clocks, Play A Sound File, Demos Similar to Common Java Demos, Show Grail's Applet Exception Handling, Calendar and A Little Joke. Grail can't decrypt gzipped HTTP packets.
  • "An error occurred in a callback function : audiodev.error : no audio device" error if trying to play a sound in Play A Sound File. It's possible the audio files don't exist where they originally existed.

Notes

Old versions of Python and Tcl/Tk are required. These may work:

HTML+TIME / XHTML+SMIL

Wikipedia page

About

HTML+TIME (Timed Interactive Multimedia Extensions) was a proposal by Microsoft for including animation and interactivity in HTML.

Downloads

No independent download, added to Internet Explorer in IE 5.5 and removed in IE 9. X-UA-Compatible does not appear to work

  • DLLs from Windows XP + Internet Explorer 6 are installable: mstime.dll for time2, datime.dll for time
  • IE11 on Windows 10 with DLLs installed and registry entry seems to have issues with transparency.
  • IE6 via Utilu on Windows 10 bolds some stuff weirdly.
  • Ad demos are apparently older HTML+TIME syntax and only seem to run on IE5.5. Can datime.dll be unblocked on Win10 and syntax added to ensure its inclusion into the page? How large would a rewrite into XHTML+SMIL be?

Examples

Registry entry

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Default Behaviors]

# C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VGX\vgx.dll
"VML"="CLSID:10072CEC-8CC1-11D1-986E-00A0C955B42E"

igLoader

Downloads

Examples

MrSID

Wikipedia article

About

An image compression plugin mainly used for orthophotos.

Downloads

O3D

Wikipedia article

About

A proposal by Google for a standard 3D API for the Web. WebGL supplanted it. Google eventually wrote a WebGL version of O3D, but conversion is not automatic and the Beach demo was not converted

Downloads

There are no known found trustworthy downloads, although source code exists. https://www.zhaodll.co/n/20130417/158957.html has been tested and works, but the website is sketchy.

Examples

Opal Player Plugin

Product info page (archived)

About

Appears to be for interactives. Potentially doesn't support Vista.

Downloads

Examples

Panda3D Plugin

About

Wikipedia article

Downloads

Examples

Problems

  • There is a huge number of runtime components that are downloaded and installed on demand. They are listed

here, and are available from this open directory. (backed up at Flashfreeze)

Pipelight

About

Unlike the other technologies on this list, this is not a distinct software platform. Instead, it is a browser plugin that allows Windows-only NPAPI plugins to run on Linux.

See here for more information.

QuickTime VR

About

Wikipedia page

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • Uses the Windows system directory and is not portable.

Notes

  • The latest version available on apple.com requires Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Service Pack 1 MFC.
  • Both Apple Application Support and QuickTime are required. Registry entries point to their locations.
  • Registry files: apple.reg, quicktime.reg
  • Not all data in quicktime.reg is likely needed.
  • In Flashpoint, Basilisk is currently configured to disable QuickTime by default to avoid conflicts.
  • Some of the npqtplugin.dll files may interfere with other video/audio plugins or built-in behavior. It may make sense to have the QuickTime plugin available only when viewing a QuickTime curation. Basilisk's built-in MIME type configuration dialog can also be used to choose what plugins are used for different types of content.

Scratch

About

An online block-based virtual language, currently based upon Blockly, then previously Flash, and before that, Java (Squeak 2.8 for the offline editor). While it is possible to curate Scratch games in Flashpoint using converters and packagers, they are not in their original form.

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • Scratch 2 and 3 do not have Linux versions. However, it may be possible to run their respective Windows versions in Wine or use a web version.

Sense8 WorldUp

Downloads

Examples

Squeak

Downloads

ThingWorld ThingViewer

  • Looks like they're intended to be single-asset
  • Some Javascript mentions possible sitelocks
  • The installer installs plugins (ActiveX and NPAPI) and a standalone viewer

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • When loading .tms files, ThingViewer gives an Invalid File error

Tulip 3D

Problems

It's unclear whether these two links reference the same plugin or two different plugins with Tulip in the name.

Visviva Animation Player

An interactive animation player, available as a web plugin and a standalone player.

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

  • vaengine.dll seems to use both WSOCK32 and WININIT, but the primary download is via WSOCK32. Flashpoint currently does not support proxying WinSock.
  • DirectPlay is required.

Wildpockets

Downloads

Examples

WildTangent Web Driver

  • The SDK is usable from Java, JavaScript or VBScript.
  • Pages typically launch wthost.exe, which itself uses an ActiveX plugin
  • FlashpointProxy.dll needs to be attached to wthost.exe. (it's currently attached to webdriver.dll)
  • A newer version, recommended by WildTangent Discord, doesn't seem to support WinInet.
  • Most games will need MS Java.
  • Antiviruses hate anything WildTangent related.
  • When producing a combined webdriver+Java config, be sure to only have one classpath entry.

Examples

X3D

Wikipedia article

Downloads

Examples

Problems Encountered

Flux Player 2.1 loads indefinitely under TheWorld 3.5.03.

XVR

Downloads

Examples

Notes

This sample, linked from personal projects, reportedly has Flash <-> XVR interaction. This might not be supportable in Flashpoint unless Flash can be added to Flashpoint Secure Player or an NPAPI version of XVR is found.
