|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.|

|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
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 = "http://uploads.ungrounded.net/userassets/547000/ 547199/prawn/";
var gamePath = "";

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.
http://uploads.ungrounded.net/userassets/547000/5 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

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

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 https://s15.postimg.cc/8lvazwg0r/notfromnewground s.png

|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"];

|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 openload.co will be around.

if this really works
let's start s33d1ng b4 they t@ke the link down
|>>||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.

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.

any way to do include them?
