Introduction: Play Flash Games Offline! (Copying From Browser Cache) - WINDOWS

In this Instructable I will show you how to play flash games offline. It involves copying the file from your browser cache. There are tutorials for Opera, Firefox and IE

Stuff you'll need:
+ A web browser (Opera, Firefox or Internet Explorer)
+ A web page with a loaded flash gameHere's one

Step 1: Copy SWF File From Browser Cache

Load the game (100%!), then go into your browser cache (look below) and open it or copy it to a Games folder (I have 217, that's 197 MB worth, games in my Flash Games folder). Some tips for finding out which file is the game is to sort by size or Date Created or the best, type. It's usually about 200 KB to 4 MB, bigger games are up to 10 or higher. The extension will be .SWF (Shockwave Flash Document), TMP (Temporary), or nothing at all. The size of the game I had a link to in the intro is 178 KB.

I'm not sure if the IE cache path I have is right, because when I used to use it when I got my computer I changed the directory. Please correct me if it's wrong.

Your windows account is the name that shows up on your start menu and Welcome screen (when you start up your computer)

CACHE DIRECTORIES
Opera: C:\Program Files\Opera\Profile\Cache4
Internet Explorer: C:\Documents and Settings\your windows account\Local Settings\Temp
Firefox: C:\Documents and Settings\your windows account\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\rtr8rd4k.default\Cache (you'll have to copy and paste this, the Cache folder is not visible in Explorer)

Step 2: Playing the Game

To play the game you have to open it with Shockwave Player or a web browser.

If the game is lagging/running slowly when you play it, right-click in the game window and change the quality (if you can see it in the list. Some developers disable some of the list options), or open it in Internet Explorer. It will run faster in IE because Windows gives it more system resources by default. Or close other applications that are taking up system resources.

If the file extension is not .SWF, go to Folder Options in the control panel, click the view tab, scroll down the list and uncheck Hide extensions for known file types, and click OK. Then you can edit the name of the file. If the extension is not .SWF, rename the file so that it is. (example: Flash Element TD.SWF)

I recommend putting your games in a folder such as "Flash Games", and definitely name them.

Have fun!

i dont like that i cant do it because i have windows 7

Nice another way I have seen after view the source.

File tidak ditemukan

I created a package of some of my favorite flash games http://offlinefl.tk . Once downloaded there's an html file that has all the flash games embedded offline.

I cannot find the files what os are you running? (i'm running win 7)

For Opera, try C:\Users\your windows account\AppData\Local\Opera\Opera\cache\sesn

That would help if i had opera :(

Sorry, I only use Opera. The internet should help you find it, though.
