Hey, can anyone help me getting this SWF to work? Its doesnt seem to load. Thank you

>>Anonymous  5apr2018(th)20:58  No.58550  A  P3R1
Its file size is less than 73 kb and it says "looking for game file" during the loading screen. It's never going to work because it's just a loader swf and there is no file on swfchan for it to load. Only stand-alone flash files work.
>>Anonymous  6apr2018(fr)14:20  No.58581  OP  P4R2
I thought it may be incomplete, thanks anyway.

Have hope, you can probably still decompile the loader and investigate the actionscript to see what exactly it loads. Download that file and edit the actionscript to make it a local link and you should be able to play it if both files are in the same directory.

here is the loader code
function loadnewgame(gnum)
trace("load new game " + gnum);
gamePath = _root.hostPath + "game_0" + gnum + ".swf";
trace("gamepath " + gamePath);
mc_game = this.createEmptyMovieClip("game",1);
fullscreenbutton.onRelease = function()
Stage.displayState = "fullScreen";
trouble = 0;
mc_text.text = "chapter " + gnum;
_root.hostPath = " 547199/prawn/";
var gamePath = "";
trace("loader starting");
var trouble;

Oh cool thanks for doing that w7 890, still kind of weird for you to type the quotelink into the title field instead of the comment.
looks like it's set up to load a max of 9-10 scenes depending on whether gnum starts at 0. 47199/prawn/game_01.swf works but it's a 3 MB file and my internet is terrible
you could get swfchan to download them all by linking each one directly but I don't know whether it downloads from links posted to /disc/

you can make it a local link by removing the root.hostpath from the gamePath equation

you're welcome but it looks like we might need some more help

did you test this before making that? I couldn't get it to work and I looked at some of the other file's scripts. they also load in another file 47199/prawn/chapterlist.swf
i'm not really sure what the problem is so i'll look at it later.

>>w7 890  4jun2018(mo)07:30  No.60161  C  P11R8
it dosen't work on the main site

houston we got a problem

here is the xmls 47199/prawn/game_01.xml
try entering game_01 to game_06
also here is an xml error
this is probably preventing the game to load

>>Anonymous  4jun2018(mo)11:24  No.60171  B  P14R9
Yeah it works!
all you do is download the xml files and remove the "_root.hostPath + " from inside the mainXML function for each game.
I would've found this earlier since I used the Text Search tool for "load" in ffdec but it only points you to the first match. lesson learned there.
Later I'll try playing it through all the way to see if any other bugs happen but at least it loads into the first scene, it wasn't doing that before.
chapterlist.swf will need some cleanup too, since it links to weebl's stuff
>>Anonymous  4jun2018(mo)11:26  No.60173  B  P15
bleh I'm getting empty files when I try using ctrl+s on the xml files, I'll just attempt to link then download them once my post goes through. 47199/prawn/game_02.xml 47199/prawn/game_03.xml 47199/prawn/game_04.xml 47199/prawn/game_05.xml 47199/prawn/game_06.xml

I think i fixed it here is the r3p4ck

enjoy and don't forget to s33d
oh btw i forgot to clean chapterlist.swf
if it really works and there's no bugs share it in NG

>>Anonymous  4jun2018(mo)18:41  No.60177  B  P17R11
well i played some of chapter 1 and encountered a bug where the cursor wouldn't change the box on the side to anything other than the last item it hovered over but that bug might be present in the full game.
>>Anonymous  4jun2018(mo)19:03  No.60178  B  P18
It appears that it was a side effect to a room being glitched. I'm still not sure if the original was like this but there's this room after the squid which can't be exited after entering it and it's impossible to move around in.
>>Anonymous  4jun2018(mo)19:20  No.60179  B  P19
okay it was part of the game, you just had to click the medicine a bunch of times. I think this is free of any bugs that were not in the original game besides the chapterlist.
>>Anonymous  4jun2018(mo)19:53  No.60180  B  P20
I finished the first chapter but either I couldn't hit the button that moves to the next chapter or it stopped possibly because chapterlist.swf is referring to weebl's stuff
I was going to post it on a review in newgrounds but I kept on getting this popup when I tried to do any review s.png
>>Anonymous  5jun2018(tu)18:40  No.60200  B  P21
Okay I finally found the bug. The game_01.xml has this attribute <chapterlist level = "11"></chapterlist> and the only fix needed in that file is to change it to <chapterlist level = "1"></chapterlist>
I checked all of the other xml files and they were the correct numbers.

Also chapterlist.swf needs to have line 34 of its frame 1 script changed to chapList = ["game_01.swf","game_02.swf","game_03.swf","game_ 04.swf","game_05.swf","game_06.swf"];

>>Anonymous  5jun2018(tu)19:00  No.60201  B  P22
Oh sorry to make another post so soon but I wanted to ask SWFAnts something.
Once there's a final working version is there any way to preserve it on swfchan? If it were just all swf files I'd upload them and put them into a collection but since it requires xml files I can't do that. I'm just concerned because this is probably the only working version out there, newgrounds has a broken version, weebl's stuff is now a youtube frontend and who knows how long will be around.

>>Anonymous  7jun2018(th)06:03  No.60242  B  P25R13
Frankly I'm not sure if anyone cares enough to take the link down in this year. The game's 11 years old, the original creator doesn't have it on their site anymore and doesn't release the swfs of their newer creations. I'm not quite sure what you mean by seeding in this context but I'd be fine creating a torrent for the file although I don't think that many people would download them.
>>Anonymous  8jun2018(fr)14:49  No.60259  E  P26R14
You can upload rar files in a /res/ thread, though that is not what it's about and I don't know if the server will even take your upload request if it's not mp3 or images in the rar, but you can always try.
Do regard that these threads DON'T get archived, but it's unlikely that they get bumped off anytime soon.

nice little game
though it looks like there were more than 6 chapters
quick google search says there's up to 12 even
any way to do include them?
>>A  28jan2020(tu)03:55  No.74454  I  P32R19
If you can find the flash files for each chapter than maybe. It shouldn't be too difficult to edit that xml file to include more chapters.
>>Anonymous  29jan2020(we)00:32  No.74459  A  P33R20
This peaked my curiosity, when you go there it says you need to be logged in to view that page. I don't care enough to sign up right now, anybody know what it is? Does Newgrounds support random file uploads in zip files by anybody?
>>Anonymous  29jan2020(we)13:06  No.74468  E  P34R21
My guess it's the same as >>60209, but on newgrounds instead

>>74454 hapter+7.swf hapter+8.swf hapter+9.swf hapter+10.swf hapter+11.swf hapter+12.swf
luckily they were already in the archive, because the weebls pages are long gone
funnily enough after chapter 6 you do get an ending screen, I wonder if that changes with these new chapters or if they are unrelated

>>Anonymous  30jan2020(th)04:31  No.74478  I  P35R22
It's odd it asked you to sign in because I tried it in 2 different browsers that I wasn't signed into newgrounds and it just started downloading immediately. I think it might have some sort of IP checker to sort out possible spam bots. It's just a .zip file of what was on the previous openload upload. newgrounds indeed does support arbitrary file uploads by registered users who haven't even paid any money; to my knowledge you can upload any type of file withing space limits.

I won't be able to work on this until later, thanks for finding them for me.

>>Anonymous  30jan2020(th)23:15  No.74484  A  P36R23
It doesn't ask me to sign in if I click the URL in >>72008, I was talking about when you visit only the "/dump/" part of the URL. Then it asks for a login.

Had no idea newgrounds supported random file uploads, I've never come across it over the years. Either they are very careful not to promote that feature or they are very quick to delete stuff that break copyright. However you can put passwords on zip files so it would be hard to inspect uploaded content, unless they disallow password protected zips of course.

>>Anonymous  26mar2020(th)20:27  No.75656  I  P38R25
No wonder those are so small, they are all preloaders. I can't find the associated flash or xml files anywhere online. I have taken the measure of messaging Weebl through reddit after finding out that he's got an account he checks somewhat regularly there. Hopefully he'll reply back soon with his response.
>>Anonymous  31mar2020(tu)20:56  No.75790  E  P39R26
great! thanks a lot
I was searching all kinds of archives for the files, but if weebl doesn't have them stored away anywhere himself, then unfortunately they would be lost to time.
>>Anonymous  31mar2020(tu)22:28  No.75795  I  P40R27
Yup. That's part of the problem with flashes that use preloaders or load other flash files: they won't be saved by the crawler or even by people unless they know to decompile the flash and look for a "load" command in the actionscript. I remember a similar thing had happened with Homestuck. Say all you want about the comic, it had some flashes that are at least of historic value; anyways, one of it's longest animations was just a preloader on the main comic; it fetched an animation that was cut up into ~4 files and those pieces were not archived anywhere aside from the original hosting spot on newgrounds.

Reporting that Weebl has indeed replied to me. He was very nice and sent me an archive but it unfortunately contained what we already had, the first 6 chapters. He's going to look for the rest but he's not optimistic about finding them, they ARE quite old after all. If they are lost I suppose someone could be crazy dedicated that they might recreate the remaining chapters from seeing the walkthrough videos -- might be pertinent to at least archive the walkthrough that was linked here.

>>Anonymous  1apr2020(we)21:05  No.75817  A  P41R28
That's cool that he wants to help out, and cool of you to bother trying to reach out to him!
>>Anonymous  3apr2020(fr)20:09  No.75862  E  P42R29
Damn, son ;(
I will never understand the attitude of "get rid of fucking everything".
Sure with the purge of flash it might not be necessary to feature that old game on his website front and center, but even having the page still there and not linked from anywhere doesn't cost anything more to do and has the same effect mainly.
Why not let the files stay on the server for all eternity? ...
But kudos to weebl for even responding. Most "internet famous" people wouldn't even bother to read such an email.
>>Anonymous  18apr2020(sa)07:59  No.76362  I  P43R30
Okay. I have talked with Weebl and after some file swapping and some digging on his part he eventually got all but the last chapter over to me.
I have updated the package here 6754f49ac991b1c9e0ed98c9

Included is his reply stating that he could not find the last chapter. Unfortunately that one seems to be lost to time unless someone else has retained it for some reason: maybe a shady games website ripped it in its entirety off of Weebl's site or something, who knows. I did try to look for those myself but yielded no results. Remember, you're not looking for just a swf file but an xml one too.

Anyways I think this is going to be the most complete version that will exist for some time, so please archive it!

>>Anonymous  24apr2020(fr)23:29  No.76508  E  P44R31
Got it! Ty.
Just found out that the game doesn't save progress, so it seems I have to start from scratch >_<
There seemed to be files to start from a certain chapter though: chapter5.swf
It's dead, but the waybackmachine got it archived.
They don't seem to work though, because they want to search for files on weebls website.
Any chance to include those in the rip, edit them with local file path and maybe copy over the ones that weren't archived?
I tried, but failed :P
Maybe also there is a way to just edit a file to instantly make it go to a certain chapter?
>>Anonymous  25apr2020(sa)04:48  No.76512  A  P45R32
Quality game, being able to walk up the walls and whatnot. ^^

So some files are still missing? Feels especially bad when even the creator of something has lost what he created. Make backups, people! Nice of weebl to put in the effort of trying to find the files though.
