I've heard rumors (for months now) that browsers are going to weed out support for Adobe Flash. I have over 70+ games on my site that are .swf format. Any suggestions on what I would need to do to prepare for such a shift? (All games were scripted using Flashdevelop + AS3)

It looks like that's where the things are going.
Example: http://www.pcmag.com/news/345294/apple- ... -safari-10

Either way, safest bet for the future would be porting the games. Research about OpenFL, Neko, Haxe.

Thanks a lot for the great link. Scary times ahead for anyone with Flash based websites... I'll start looking into what it will take to port my 70+ games. I appreciate your attention with this.

Wise of you to start worrying about it now and not later. Porting 70+ games sounds like a pretty big effort, good luck there.

Thanks for the link. I have some of the smartest people I know (in coding) helping me with your advice... at least trying to find the easiest or most efficient way to do this. The ending of Flash support is gonna kill us...

I'm seeing a lot of info online about the conversion of .swf files to HTML5, anyone had any experience with this?
