  Hi mod-san, they've been encouraging content creators to fuck off for years now, and the flash
  plugin/sa downloads have been buried in their AIDS-ridden piece of shit site where it's hard to
  find for even longer.
  I don't think they've sold the flash creation software on its own without being part of a bundle
  for a long time.

  Maybe this will inspire more work on gnash or shumway to come into parity, or maybe adobe will be
  pressured into letting the source for flashplayer go. Either way the only change here is a date
  to download the standalone player by.

  The HTML5 working standard isn't a good replacement for flash, especially not with EME baked in.

  It's not even close to the same anyway, they don't have vector graphics or any animation/timeline

  Guys just keep in mind that even though official support is gone it doesn't mean the format dies.

  They want to not be held responsible for any future problems flash may cause. If they make a
  final version but make it still officially available it's possible that some huge exploit is
  discovered in 2030 and media comes to bite them in the ass for it.

  What they should do is make an open-source GitHub repository for the browser plugin and just bask
  in the goodwill it would create for the company.

  That way the community would at least have a way to patch any exploits if discovered and there's
  a chance the format could improve. I bet there are people out there that would love to build upon
  swf but don't have the time to create everything from scratch.

  Dirty Secret:
  Adobe never removes their deprecated works; they simply hide the links in ever-increasingly
  obscure links.
  You have to search-hard to find the actual links to legacy resources, but they still exist. You
  can often find them through tech blogs and such.
  You can still download the original installers for CS3 straight from the Adobe servers if that's
  your fancy.
  The API references for AS1/2, all that is there for the finding.
  (don't ask for links, I haven't got them handy, but I know from recent experience this is so)

  I'm certain an alternative will be found, we've been warned two years ahead.

  however if the browsers actually make it impossible to load flash, I don't know how this board

  macromedia didnt really claim to invent future splash either. they did however take the core of
  future splash and rebranded it as flash, and this was all the way back in 96. i dont know exactly
  how similar flash and future splash is but id imagine flash is very different. probably so
  different that i wouldnt object if macromedia invented flash because it was so different from
  future splash. has to be a limit somewhere, otherwise the company that created future splash
  wouldnt be able to claim they invented future splash because they didnt invent vector graphics.

  I despise HTML5 as much as any other person, but this is nonsense.

  HTML5 is more than capable of emulating the vast majority of Flash files perfectly fine.
  The only ones it won't be able to do is the really intense ones because JavaScript timing isn't a
  guarantee, it is a privilege.
  But even that can be overcome by using message timers instead of setTimeout
  The former message-based timers are closer to instant and reliable as you can get in JS.
  setTimeout is throttled by the resource manager both if the tab is focused or unfocused.

  The BIGGEST issue with HTML5 as a flash replacement is the lack of a single, unified file.
  The only realistic option is something like a zip file. You put a zip decoder in the JS and make
  all the internal resources file blobs and assign a virtual URL to them.
  That way you can distribute one single file.
  Doesn't need to be named .zip either. you could name it .shittingdicknipples if you want to.
  I think .h5f sounds best. html5file. I did have game instead, but what if the project is not a

  Of course, in reference to making a ZIP file be the replacement for SWF , some will think "but
  that's fucking dumb, how can you guarantee standards?"
  WEBM on here is fairly standard. Hell, there are 2 separate splits, one with audio, one without.
  Both incompatible and the latter soundless WEBMs an abuse to get better animated images since GIF
  is fucking awful.

  All you need for your new project is an HTML page, maybe CSS, JS, and maybe some image and audio
  files if you use them.
  The whole HTML5 file can be hosted inside of a sandboxed iframe with everything but scripting
  This will prevent it from doing dodgy shit.

  Pls mods, send this to the wonderful dev and see what he thinks.
  It is very doable.
  Just need to define a common standard, similar to most web servers requiring an index.html file
  to display as the homepage.
  It's not like security will be an issue. There have already been malicious flash files uploaded
  countless times over the years.

  I just group them all in folders regardless of filename, then give the folder a descriptive name.

  The great thing about flash is that you could post them without needing your own server, or git
  repo, or anything else like that. It was a single file, so you could build portal sites like this
  or Newgrounds.

  Someone needs to make a self-contained HTML5 format thing that can be read by browsers. For
  security, it should not just be a zip file, but something else. It should be optionally
  compiled/obfuscated, depending on whether you want other people to be able to open it and read

  as container format for all kinds of things as well.

  Is there anything that could be the new .swf file?

  If there's a browser bug that lets you execute downloaded code, they can contain the payload in

  You see, any place that runs this kind of software turns into a potential vector for malware.
  It's like leaving your server wide open. You *have* to take precautions.

  The usual approach to this kind of thing (other than constraining what people can post to the
  degree it's just another facebook or tumblr clone) is to limit limit limit. Limiting content
  makes it easy to aggregate, easy to present in a "feed" etc. It basically fosters a super-shallow
  type of content creation-- everything you make has to be able to be consumed in its entirety
  while a user is scrolling their feed. I think that sucks.

  I miss the old newgrounds experience, where an individual creator would have your undivided
  attention for minutes at a time, in a frame which they had complete control over, and could do
  any unexpected thing imaginable. A 2 minute movie followed by a search puzzle? A 10-frame long
  window during a 30 minute episode where you could click a particular spot for an easter-egg?

  Like, if you approached a company to make a "self-contained content format" today, the likely
  approach would be to structure everything in a particular way. Set constraints.

  Audio goes here, animations go here. Code goes here, but it's a special language we devised so we
  get final say over what you can do. Oh, someone wants to fill their canvas with a function,
  pixel-by-pixel? Someone wants to use some bleeding edge HTML5 thing to emulate a Yamaha YM2612?

  The way I'm thinking it'd work is, you'd need a special server-side script to decompress and

  Doing the Zip file method, probably comparable to a typical Flash project.
  If you were to do it purely without a zip file, the most efficient way I have found to encode
  data is base91.

  You already stated why it isn't a bad idea in your own post.
  It's trivial to base64 executable code and exploits.
  It's literally an HTML5 front-line feature.
  The sandbox would be as (un)safe as the flash container is.
  There's already malicious flash files out there as it is. They get uploaded here fairly
  regularly, in fact.
  A zip file is the easiest way to do an HTML5 replacement for Flash for the sake of making it

  Doesn't need to be that complex.
  A script is embedded in the HTML5 sandbox.
  It downloads the zipped HTML5 project from server, decodes it in memory then runs it.
  To make it so it can be standardized, you could require them to have a function called "main"
  that starts the project.
  Or you can make it a self-invoking function.

  Doing an HTML5 preloader is even more of a pain.
  What could be done is a separate folder in the zip called preloader, downloads that first which
  then downloads the rest. But that requires server-side stuff to extract that then serve it to
  clients first.
  It would all need to be formalized and such.
  There are loads of other ways it could be done.

  You're probably right about this, but I still think it'd be good to have some way to prevent exe
  files from existing in the container. It wouldn't even necessarily need to exploit a browser
  bug-- it could just be put in place in case someone decided to decompile the project to change
  it-- name a file misleadingly so they'll double-click without thinking.

  Maybe it could be a server-side thing.

  >To make it so it can be standardized, you could require them to have a function called "main"
  that starts the project.
  I like the idea of having an index.html better. This is in line with pre-existing standards-- a
  game project made after this pattern could just be unzipped and viewed in a standard browser-- or
  fed to nginx/apache.

  It'd also make it nearly braindead easy to port a lot of existing html5 projects to this format
  for easy sharing.

  I think for this kind of thing to take off, it has to have as few barriers to entry as possible.
  Lots of people already know how to make basic HTML/JS projects, and to share it, using WinZip
  isn't a stretch.

  >Doing an HTML5 preloader is even more of a pain.
  I think this kind of thing is in the past. Internet connections are so fast nowadays... I often
  don't even get a chance to see those clever early 2000s preloaders before the thing starts.

  If we go the unzip-before-serving route, you can just let the author use any one of the many JS
  preloading frameworks that already exist.

  The point of this, as I see it, isn't to slavishly duplicate Flash, it's to emulate the things it
  got VERY right. To make it easy to create little projects that can be easily shared.

  Although I could see a container being built with some kind of future hyper-accurate version of
  Shumway to run a specific .swf file.

  Another consideration, Adobe has replaced flash with "Animate," that makes little js/html
  projects. It'd probably be good to stick to the way the web usually works to make integrating
  those as simple as possible.

  I did some messing around with it a couple of years ago making some frame-by-frame animations I
  could use in my own JS projects, and it seemed like it should be able to do it.

>> [_] Anonymous 07/26/17(Wed)15:13:56 No.3266581

  To expand on those ways of serving:

  Upload .h5f file to 4chan
  It generates link to the full file as normal.
  You click it, opens new page with a script and sandbox iframe. (which is 100% width and height,
  like a typical Flash file)
  The script loads the HTML5 project to the sandboxed iframe.

  If it opens in a new page, what will actually happen instead is the server intercepts that
  request and sends you an HTML page with a script and an iframe, which then downloads your file to
  the sandboxed iframe.
  That iframe will be the full dimensions of the document like when you open a Flash file in its
  own tab.
  But if you right click and save it, it won't be able to do that redirect, so will save normally.
  The issue comes with a person that saves the tab they are in. People will just need to get used
  to not doing it because they will save the loader and the HTML5 file together.

  >If we go the unzip-before-serving route, you can just let the author use any one of the many JS
  preloading frameworks that already exist.
  Would use more bandwidth, but it is doable.
  It would essentially be creating a webpage on 4chan, all the resources would be saved there, you
  download them.
  If you save the page, it would save every resource in a folder (if .html) or together (if .mhtml)
  Would be easy enough to recombine them all in to a zipped file. (but still a pain)
  Although, it would be possible to do the same redirect intercept method in the upper half of this

  I think that's too elaborate for something that won't really net you much. I think just offering
  a download link somewhere, either on the posting page, or maybe a little icon in the corner of
  the page would work fine.

  I also think we should keep the burden of unzipping and running the file off of the client side.
  Your method would have to find all the resource requests, in both code, HTML, etc... and replace
  them with your own resource blobs/virtual URLs. It would basically be a script transpiler that
  runs in the browser. This opens us up to unexpected bugs if someone decides to do something
  unusual in their code. I think we should reduce complexity as much as possible.

  Your thing could be an option, definitely, an alternative implementation, but if I'm going to
  make one it will be a node.js thing that just unzips to a temporary directory (or maybe uploads
  to a CDN) and serves it. My focus is on making the app itself easy and seamless, and for me,
  something as tech heavy as that would take me on a long detour from my goal.

  So, if we're going to do anything, the absolute most important thing is to agree on a file
  format. I like using a zip archive with the .h5f extension, but I'd want to bootstrap it by just
  loading index.html, (in an iframe or not, to the server operator's taste).

  Yeah, most likely that will get more attention and work done to it.
  Would be great to get others to know this exists and try it out.

  The timing will be a huge issue.
  JS timers are fucking awful.
  The closest you can get to reliable timing is message-based timers which get sent as instantly as
  the JS engine can parse it.
  But that is also at the whim of the JS engine.
  Normal JS timers get throttle hard, but an overloaded engine can shit on your sync.

  Of course, this is true of ALL games in general. Flash actually holds your hand in that regard.
  It might actually make better developers in general.
  Writing proper code where the logic and graphics is in sync manually rather than depending on a
  timer also makes it much easier to developer and debug I find.
  So that way even if it were throttled, it will ALL be throttled equally since the stepping system
  keeps it in sync. Stepping is just better.

  Yeah, it is overly elaborate. But if to save bandwidth, it would be necessary.
  I'm just a mad optimization fag.

  I do agree that a separate download being visible would help.
  Now that I think about it, webpages have full access to keyboard input.
  You could intercept ctrl+s and send the event the URL to the actual zipped file.
  That way it keeps it all neat instead of the typical .html and the resources in a folder, or an
  .mhtml compiled HTML file.
  That method works a lot easier.

  I like this a lot. It could definitely be an option for server operators. Or maybe the authors
  could optionally place hooks to helper functions that the website makes available, just in case
  the h5f file itself wants to use ctrl+s (i.e. if it's a paintchat program, or some neat little
  authoring tool that actually has documents you can create/load/save).

  Like, there would be a shared library you could include in your project, and by default ctrl+s
  would tell the site to send you a download of the h5f file, but you can override it.

  >JS timers are fucking awful.
  I haven't read that much about this... What about requestAnimationFrame and counting time between
  each call? That's what I use, but I don't know if I've ever needed to do any timing I'd call

  If we don't push forward with this, there'll be no impetus for the browser vendors, standards
  people etc... to make it any better. We're probably going to have to just stumble along with
  whatever's available until they get their shit straight. That's what they did with Flash, the
  first game that made newgrounds famous was hacked together in as1, which IIRC didn't have
  variables or anything else.

  I'm thinking of making a git or something to make this project more a generic system rather than
  just 4chan based.
  A lot of people would likely be interested in helping with it.
  A lot of HTML5 hosting systems all have their own systems, but making a generic hosting solution
  for others would further advance its adoption.

  Yeah I was thinking that, as a generic project, what you could have is the key-intercept code in
  a separate JS file which gets loaded in to the main file by command.
  If a website doesn't want to allow files to be saved, they simply remove that file and command.
  Or could just do it as a flag and they set it to 0. They'd likely obfuscate the code anyway, so
  peering eyes won't be able to find it as easily.
  And if they wrap it in an anonymous function, it is completely locked out from external access
  anyway. No console actions can access 100% anonymous functions as far as I know. It is an
  unintended feature of the privacy system since you have no access to the entire memory state of

  >What about requestAnimationFrame and counting time between each call?
  Yeah, that system works well.
  Stepping through the code both in logic and graphics separately can keep them in sync. This is
  how I always done it too.
  It just makes the entire process so easy to work with and figure out rather than depending on the
  system to maintain 60FPS all the time every time.
  If you need an animation to run at half-FPS, you simply half its stepping, simple.
  Also makes it easy to add 2-3-4x speed to games

  In the case of how awful Flash is, the Flash one may as well not exist, but escaping Pepper would

  It was a spam crew originally.
  Basically in 2000 a guy called Coolboyman thought it'd be funny to make some extremely shit
  flashes, he made a new account called StrawberryClock which he named after Strawberry Alarm Clock
  and made total shit and sometimes it'd pass portal.
  He made a flash called A and it got blammed so he made another called B. WadeFulp thought it was
  funny so he made it unblammable and it passed. Newgrounds users at the time were just angry teens
  looking at hentai games and assassin games all fucking day so seeing this red letter B just
  pissed everyone off.
  After this a few other people started making tributes as like OrangeClock, RaspberryClock and
  GrapesClock etc. and it grew massively, most of it was spam in the early days but a lot actually
  ended up making decent movies.
  A lot of other crews followed like Lock Legion (FAGS), Star Syndicate, Glock Group, Barney Bunch,
  KITTY KREW etc. the later 3 were all spam and always massvoted through judgement and then
  massvoted down to get turd of the week eventually leading to Wade removing the award.

  Plugins WERE the 3rd party solution.
  Once the API is dropped, Flash, UnityWeb, Silverlight, VLCs media player for embed/object based
  video and every other plugin is gone.

  Sure, you can almost certainly expect a fork, but it will still mean you are running an API and
  plugin that is no longer being updated by anyone.
  Fine if you run it in a sandbox and use it solely for plugin-based media.
  But the longer it is like that, the more likely exploits are capable of escaping and causing

  Can just keep an old Chrome for it.
  Chrome before they removed NPAPI is best. PPAPI flash is inferior shit.

  If you want to go full-on, make a Windows VM image that boots2Chrome with flash. (pick your least
  hated Windows)
  Strip out anything non-essential for Windows to run. (>90% of it, literally, not exaggeration,
  most is drivers+legacy)
  A little known feature in Chrome is you can ctrl+O to open files. Use that to get your flash
  files. Don't even keep Explorer around. Delete it. It's shite.
  Once you have it all set up, make it read-only VM image. Make a backup just in case you fuck it
  You can always add new flash files if people still cling on to it, or you find new ones you never
  saw before.

  Its not about making the browser support anything, you just make a plugin to support the content
  you want. There are plenty of thrid party applications out there capable of playing flash, I
  don't see why that couldn't be adapted to a plugin, unless you're using a crap browser like edge.

  Well, that's what I'm talking about, sure it won't be updated, and there will probably be
  security exploits found, that doesn't mean it will be impossible to play flash content.

  But seriously, why do you need such a convoluted plan for running flash content through a
  browser? There's plenty of third party options, flash no longer supporting or updating won't just
  magically make all that disappear.

  Removing old and deprecated systems from the internet is essential to proper security unless you
  absolutely know 100% how it works and how to secure it.
  Most don't. Even intelligence agencies.

  These days Virtualization is so trivial to do.
  In 5 years, it will be commonplace.
  Linux, for example, now has virtual GPU drivers being tested. This will allow a GPU to be shared
  to every OS on a machine in the same way the CPU is.
  This will make Linux with Windows VM for gaming as easy as "click here to turn on [blah blah]".
  At present, using GPU passthrough is hit-or-miss. It is highly CPU, motherboard and GPU dependent.

  Yeah. I mean, I knew Quake Live was there, but I thought it pretty much stuck at there since
  nothing else was using it.
  But UE4 works in HTML5 now. Fuck me.
  However, just like Flash, I don't see advanced HTML5 graphics via webGL taking off. I hope I am
  wrong. But I think the web as we know it now will be dead before it gets a chance.

  I almost want a nuclear-level attack on the net to wipe it off the face of the Earth.

  So much legacy shit is holding it back.

  TCP isn't used outside of the internet. Anyone creating low-latency high-bandwidth roll their own

  Then you have IPv4 and IPv6.

  Here's a shitty story:
  I used to make (and monetize) Flash avatars, pets, toys, and backgrounds on Whirled when it was a
  thriving community.
  Whirled was a purely Flash-based virtual world full of user-made chatrooms, and a virtual arcade
  full of great games where any and all users could upload content (including those games).
  Several years ago, Three Rings gave up on it as it was a loss-leader, selling it to SEGA.
  SEGA promptly killed the monetization model, and disabled music in chat rooms and uploads, as
  DRM-liabilities. Then one of the founders (Grey Havens, gained the rights to
  the codebase and attempted to continue the experience, to no avail.
  April 2016, it finally died, and suddenly went offline, leaving its dedicated Flash artists in
  the lurch. However, the codebase was quietly open-sourced.
  A number of forks were created, though none took off... except Synced (http://www.syncedonl ... note that this site in any of its iterations has only worked in Chrome since about
  2014 - thanks Firefux!)
  Virtually all the dedicated user base found their way there (myself included), and as of this
  writing are still working hard to fix all the long-established bugs and extend the life of this
  wonderful community...
  and then Adobe shits the bed.
  After being tossed off the ship, and surviving shark attacks and hypothermia, the Flash wonks
  that made such a creative, expressive community are now doomed to succumb to drowning in the

  All those thousands of hours I spent developing Flash goodies that brought joy to so many (and

  So, yeah, make no mistake. The real people in power probably know EXACTLY what they're doing.
  They are very slowly slowly wrapping their hands around your throat.

  But don't get resentful of them. Don't become what they are.

  I'd recommend you read The Gulag Archipelago (or listen to the audiobook on youtube, which is
  what I did). What he describes is, in microcosm, what's happening in the west now.

  It's a brilliant fucking book. You have to read the whole thing to really get this message, and I
  doubt anyone is going to do that on a recommendation from some anon on an imageboard, so I'll
  just spoil it for you.

  Solzhenitsyn lays out all the atrocities that the Soviets committed. He leads you into a blind
  rage... You want to visit upon them all the atrocities they committed on their victims, and
  worse. You may have gotten the same feeling in your past when learning about Nazi atrocities.
  Kill them all! Painful death, in fact, torture, is just poetic justice. *Catharsis!* Let the
  world be clean of people who would commit such acts!

  Then, while all those images that *you* created of the horrible things you'd have in store for
  these people, if they ever got under your control, he hits you with this:

  “If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing
  evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But
  the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing
  to destroy a piece of his own heart?”

  You are just as bad as them. There but for the grace of God or blind luck, go you. Definitely try
  and stop them from doing what they're planning, but treat them, and yourself, with some sympathy.
  Take responsibility, own yourself. You are far more important (and dangerous!) than you give
  yourself credit for. Have some respect.

  The Nazis were convinced that the Jews were committing acts of terror against them. Poisoning
  them, casting them down into poverty. Sure, maybe you're justified in doing more than simply
  rendering Nazis harmless, killing them, taking them out of the world, maybe in a painful manner.
  But from a practical standpoint, knowing what kind of a thing you are, do you really have the
  chops to render that judgement? What if you're just blind, demon-haunted as them?

  I think it's enough just to prevent horrible things from happening as much as you're capable,
  regardless of the context. The alternative is endless bloody conflict.

  Since Flash VM development is going to be stopped (and it hasn't changed much in years, AND most

  What are you on about? Flash is proprietary (or at least, the only complete implementation is),
  and the standards that are planned to replace it are open. The reason there's a push to get rid
  of Flash it that it's a terrible format. I don't doubt that Adobe has ulterior motives here, but
  there's no motive for groups like Google or Mozilla to go along with those.

  Flash itself is shitty, but that doesn't mean that everything made in Flash or the communities
  around it are.

  Okay, but they're breaking basic social contract.

  We deign to them, give them nice things, let them lead, because we expect them to take care of us.

  Freedoms relinquished for protection. Obedience given for prosperity.
  Leadership is a position of duty to those you lead.

  And much like your reminder that all have sinned and fallen short, and that none can justifiably
  cast the first stone, of mercy on others because we are no better, this too is a biblical
  concept. It shows up in Matthew 20, Luke 22, Mark 9, John 13, and both Paul's letters to the
  Corinthians, as well as in his instruction to husbands about their wives.

  Thus them throwing us and our needs under the bus to get more power and wealth for themselves is
  a direct affront to that arrangement. A leader which does not perform their duties should be
  removed from power. Monarchic revolution. Democatic revolution. Marxist revolution. It doesn't
  really matter, they all boil down to this basic principle, that a leader of people who neglects
  his people is no rightful leader, and to be forcibly replaced post-haste.

  Forcible removal is something that should be done, as far as is possible, within the pre-existing
  social structures that exist.

  Violent revolution very rarely makes things better for the people that undertake it. The USA at
  its founding was an exception-- they had huge untapped resources, lots of land. They had
  per-capita potential wealth that we can't even really imagine. In that situation, the rewards to
  leaders staying true to their word, and fulfilling their contract with the citizens of the new
  nation was greater than the rewards to becoming unutterably corrupt. People had great value
  then-- society needed them to go out and exploit those resources, bring them back so the rest of
  civilization could use them.

  If we had a revolution now, it would probably end with the new ruling party realizing that, since
  they won the war, they have carte blanche to loot civilization for every bit of value and power
  they can accrue to themselves. That's the best case-- assuming it's a libertarian or any other
  kind of sorta-conservative but not really right-wing party that sits on top at the end.

  It could also be so much worse. If an ideological, PoMo or far right group gets into power, we
  should probably just hunker down for 200-400 years of darkness (2,000-4,000 if Islam is a factor).

  See, we have so many identitarian groups, all of which think THEY should be the ones in charge,
  that it's THEIR turn. They're also profoundly resentful. We don't realize the terrible forces
  that exist within all of us. If given a chance to commit horrible acts without consequences, an
  individual can stop themselves. They can ask "What the hell am I doing?" or "What kind of a
  person am I?" But in a group, the temperamental tendencies are amplified, and the dissenting,
  conscientious voices of self-consciousness are diminished. It almost seems like something you
  could model mathematically-- the conscience of a group of people decreases by the square of the
  number of people in it.

>> [_] Anonymous 07/28/17(Fri)10:32:54 No.3267364

  See, those videos deal with a group of people who consider themselves a single, unified tribe.
  Where there actually *is* a social contract that all the concerned actors recognize.

  That isn't the case in the west right now. Right now, many people (about 20% of white people,
  about half of everyone of other races, and like 90% of muslims) consider themselves a group of
  loosely confederated tribes, conquered and subdued by some over-arching authority ("whites"
  consider it the state, other groups consider the state and whites to be the same). If that
  authority fails, the percentage of people who currently submit to the social contract will
  probably default to tribal loyalty.

  At that point, it's just a mad dash for power, with each group trying whatever it can to get it.
  And once they do, we will probably see another holocaust.

  We all know about the minority of whites who think blacks are animals. It won't be so easy for
  them to deny that assessment when a group of blacks, upset at (what they've been told about) the
  state of society up to this point, ransacks their neighborhood.

  Most blacks (the ignorant ones... I'm not talking about your middle-class neighbor who you've
  known all your life) I've interacted with HATE hispanics. Much worse than they hate whites.

  And hispanics, for their part, come from some of the most racially aware and probably outright
  racist societies that have ever existed-- maybe outside of India at the ancient foundation of the
  caste system.

  If given a chance, there's a high probability (near certainty if you add Islam to the mix, as
  you'd have to in Europe) that whoever gets into power will just slaughter their competitors. That
  is the kind of animal we are when we're scared and the social structures that propped us up
  applies both individually and collectively.

  If we're going to have a revolution, it will have to take the form of a gradual reformation of
  the institutions. Increase regulation of corporations, revoke corporate personhood (I'm VERY
  pro-capitalist and still I believe this is an absolute necessity). We definitely need some kind
  of a social safety net, so that we don't have this underclass who can be easily converted into a
  fifth-column by agitators.

  And we need to FUND PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION*. This is the number one thing we must
  do as a civilization if we don't want to end up like every other empire that has come before.
  Don't feed me that shit like:


  because even if it's impossible to understand, it's so necessary for the future of our species
  that we have to try. Because the stakes have never been higher. This may be our last shot.

  We can't morally (or really even practically) make people do things they don't want to do, but we
  can't just let ourselves do whatever we (think that we) want to either, slaves that we are to our
  base temperament. We need to form a new covenant with ourselves, and with our own basic nature.
  This entails that we learn absolutely everything we can about it.

  Otherwise, we'll just stay the puppets of internal forces beyond our reckoning, which we don't
  even want to know about because we don't want to admit we're not always, and probably rarely even
  are, under our own conscious control.

  *(NOT social psychology-- that's corrupted by power politics, and most of its proponents
  implicitly call for violent revolution, which isn't what we want for reasons I outlined above. A
  huge proportion of them are avowed marxists for crying out loud!)

  HTML5 can actually be better in a lot of ways. You can use WebGL (which isn't just for 3D-- it
  makes for buttery-smooth 2D animation as well. Google Maps uses it for example.) It's not slow--
  In fact, I can't think of anything that Flash can do faster.

  You have much lower-level access to the system than you do with Flash, and it's much easier to
  debug JS, because the classes you use for E.G. animation aren't burdened down with years and
  years worth of cruft and a multiple inheritance nightmare. I don't know much about the Flash VM,
  but I think that's a big reason why it was often slow with a lot of sprites on screen at once.
  I'm able to do most things a LOT faster than Flash could.

  Your right-click isn't hijacked by default for a system menu. I think this is a BIG deal for
  action games and authoring tools, paintchats etc.

  You can write shaders that aren't crap.

  Two big reasons HTML5 hasn't taken off the way Flash did are A: all those features are locked
  behind a steep learning curve, and B: it's hard to share what you've made. We'll have to wait for
  frameworks, tutorials, and for authoring tools like Animate catch up on A, but I think B is a
  much bigger deal.

  Most people use social networks now where there's only 2-5 different kinds of thing you can post.
  Text, Images, Video. That's all people really think about because it's all that's presented as a
  possibility. There's no vibrant community for HTML5 stuff the way Newgrounds was able to catalyze
  Flash in the early days. That's what I'm aiming to change-- make sharing your HTML5 works as easy
  as sharing photos and videos.

  I'm surprised at the posting quality of this thread. I've become so accustomed to other popular
  boards where the vast majority of discussion is written at a high school level. It's clear that
  most of us on /f/ are actually old enough to remember the time when flash was so significant to
  internet culture.

  /f/ is not one of the more popular boards so less retards come here.

  Very funny, modfags.
  Are you happy with yourselves?
  You accomplished:
  (1) killing the status of the most epic thread ever by (2) manufacturing hyper-dramatic
  histrionics and general panic in our little community.
  It's not April 1st, so go find another way to entertain yourselves.

  There's not really much of a reason to develop "actionscript driven rich-content" when nobody's
  ever gonna see it.

  It's not the tech itself that people are upset about, it's the way this particular tech fostered
