    Smile Confirmation that Flash games will no-longer be supported -

    Adobe has officially set a kill date for its beleaguered Flash.

    The Photoshop giant said today it plans to end support for the hacker-prone multimedia browser plugin by the end of 2020. This means no more updates for Flash Player after that date and the end of support on many browsers, including Chrome, Internet Explorer and Edge, and Firefox.

    Facebook also says it will shut off Flash games by the end of 2020, and is advising developers to change their FB games over to a different format.

    "Where we’ve seen a need to push content and interactivity forward, we’ve innovated to meet those needs. Where a format didn’t exist, we invented one – such as with Flash and Shockwave," said a spokesperson for Adobe, which didn't actually invent either format.

    "And over time, as the web evolved, these new formats were adopted by the community, in some cases formed the basis for open standards, and became an essential part of the web."

    Programmers, designers and companies whose websites still rely on Flash (Google estimates that is about 17 per cent of all sites) are being encouraged to start planning now to transition to a more modern format, such as HTML5 and WebGL, though they probably should have already done that already.

    The announcement will be welcome news for security professionals and administrators, as it is one less attack vector to worry about. The notoriously insecure Flash Player plugin has emerged in recent years as the favorite target for automated exploit kits due to both its prevalence and the large number of serious flaws lingering in the code.

    This also means that many of you that are using exploits, or even the program to actually "HACK" tynon will not be able to do so any longer - IF Tynon moves over to Either Unity or HTML5.


    Will Tynon still be around? Perhaps and perhaps not. We'll just have to wait and see.
    Though , there are many of you that still want to play, Well - why don't we just enjoy this game to its fullest until - it's termination?

    Well, not the best news for today, but this is life. I remember times when I used to play all those games on the internet because my computer wasn’t powerful enough to run different games like GTA, Duke Nukem, Max Payne, and other awesome games that made my childhood. Happy that today I can play almost any game I want, using a cd key from www.cdkeysforgames.com. Check it out, maybe you’ll find something interesting there too. Currently, I play Cyberpunk, and it is awesome.

    Really, anyone who thinks there are any programmers left at Tynon to change to a different format, hasn't been around this game for a very long time. They haen't been able to fix the game for over 2 years, and that is just to fix the major bugs. There are several issues that are much older than that. No help, no support. The game is as it will be. I am actually amazed the serveres are still lup. Those who don't update their browser, can still play as is. Everyone else is done as of Jan 1, 2021. If you have an old version browser, the game is playable, but barely, with all the glitches and problems that have been in it for the last year. I, as a few of the other die hards, will still log on, do dailies, chat a moment, then leave. For the most part, that is all that has been going on for a year now anyhow. To all who I played with, that still pop on now and then, it has been a pleasure, I have enjoyed the game, and the friends.
