This guide will teach you how to play online games offline.

Why you would want to do this:
The offline game works with fullscreen.
You can have a big collection.
You can play them offline.

**Highly recommended

You need:
A computer (windows/linux/mac)
Firefox (
*adblock plus (
flash player (
**flash player projector

I direct linked the zips. The flash player projector link is:
Linux users go here
Windows users go here
Mac users go here

Note: I use ubuntu linux, but the end result and build are the same on all platforms.

Step 1: Install Software

A swf is a flash game.
We will use adblock plus to get the swf easily.

Open your online game and move your mouse over it.
You should see a block tab.
DON'T CLICK IT, right click and save link as.
Then save it to your desktop.

*or you can save the whole page by : File > Save page as.
*Then find the .swf in the folder for the file.

Step 3:

I found a program that you type the flash games url and it downloads the file

Harikunojo (author)2015-05-27

Does this method support save data for the downloaded games, or do they always start clean every time they're played?

All games that rely on chat, MMORPG, and social can't be done on offline mode such as Empires and Allies or Nightclub City,

I think it's worth mentioning that if you don't want to install the projector you can open the swf in your browser and press F11 to set your browser to full screen.

You don't need the software you've mentioned - most web-browsers will offer the "save as" option.


scratchr (author)lemonie2010-01-10

Yes you could do that, but you have to download more, then search through all the flash. And I know there are a lot of flash ads.

lemonie (author)scratchr2010-01-10

So what you're doing is... yes I think I get it.

Where do you get the flash player projector? I've used media player classic to play swf's but its not so good in full screen because of the popup menu

scratchr (author)Scott_Tx2010-01-10

I direct linked the zips. The flash player projector link is:
linux users go here
windows users go here
mac users go here

Scott_Tx (author)Scott_Tx2010-01-10

Nevermind, missed the link.
