Let's Be Real:

Neopets lost most of it's value at the Beta conversion & Loss of Flash support!


Do not fret! I'm still playing Flash Games legitimately well into 2021!

[Tested & Working Method(s) Last Checked: 4/4/21]


Method #1) Pale Moon Browser [Windows PC]


IMPORTANT: After downloading & before installation, DISABLE INTERNET CONNECTION.

Once it's disabled, run the downloader but make sure to select: "Never check for updates" within the installer!!! (CRUCIAL)

Once it's completely installed, you may turn back on your internet connection, and this browser (Version 27 or Older) should have Flash Player automatically embedded within the browser. I didn't have to do any extra stuff besides what I just told you to get Flash Player to work for me. It's a tiny bit buggy sometimes but works like a freakin charm 90%+ of the time!


Method #2) Old Firefox, Flash & Shockwave!! [Mac Computers Only]

Old Flash:    https://mac.filehors...h-player/11182/

Old Shockwave:    https://www.macupdat...hockwave-player

Old Firefox:     https://ftp.mozilla..../52.1.0esr/mac/


Just like the first method, you're going to download all three items then disable internet connection before installing!

Once all 3 things have been installed, unlike M#1, you're going to go into the settings of your newfound old version of FF and:

Preferences --> Advanced Settings --> Update tab --> FF Update --> Press "Never check for updates"


MacOS Sys. Preferences --> Flash Player  --> Updates --> Never check for updates!

Once you do both of these things after installation, then you may re-enable your internet connection!


Currently looking for a way to get Shockwave working nicely on Windows PC, if anyone knows anything, comment or PM me an I'll add it to this post.


Sources: Countless hours on many different Sub-Reddits I was able to piece this together for Neopets usage! <3

Bonus: Array of Bytes still works nicely in Pale Moon ^__^

Guide to that coming up shortly!

Can confirm: yes. You can also get avatars, trophies, and so on. Even old Shockwave/3DVIA games work, if you can somehow get them functioning on your computer. No luck of 3DVIA with PaleMoon, and I haven't tried setting up Shockwave. Will let you know how that goes.
