    Portable browser with Flash/Shockwave (Basilisk)

    Portable browser with Flash/Shockwave (Basilisk)
    With the deprecation of Flash at our doorstep, and Shockwave being retired mid 2019 we are faced with only a few options left to keep enjoying our Shockwave and Flash Habbo retros.

    I'm releasing a portable browser that's based on Basilisk (which is a Firefox fork). It comes with both Flash and Shockwave pre-installed. It will work offline, doesn't require internet for these two plugins to work.

    It will work for the foreseeable future.

    I do not recommend regular browsing on this (because both security updates for Shockwave and Flash have ceased) but you should be able to go to your local hotel and run it fine.

    Download: Basilisk-Portable

    Extract the file and then run Browser.bat (this is for people who may not find the .exe)

    After opening you should be able to use Flash and Shockwave plugins normally.

    You can update Basilisk by:

    Heading to https://www.basilisk-browser.org/
    Download the 32-bit Windows ZIP archive. Extract it and copy everything inside the "basilisk" folder to Basilisk-Portable\Bin\basilisk

    Nope, the Basilisk browser doesn't have explicit support for Mac. Mac isn't good for Shockwave when it comes to Catalina and up.

    If you want to just play Flash and then install SeaMonkey (https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/) instead.

    Sigh, another person had this issue. I'll test on a fresh VM to try and investigate.

    As I am very impatient, I have spent the day fixing it as I had the same issue, now all works fine.

    Download:
    Basilisk-Portable

    VirusTotal:
    https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/...dc84/detection

    To run extract it by clicking the exe and then click the Browser.bat in the extracted folder to open the browser.

    The reason it is an exe is just incase someone doesn't have a program to extract zips and the Browser.bat is for ease of use for the inexperienced people.

    Thanks for the release though, much easier than installing palemoon and shockwave etc separately.

    I see what you did, you re-extracted what was from Flashpoint and fixed the paths. Nice. I originally wanted them in

    I was in the middle of trying this on the VM - I believe it must not like having the plugins folder in the same folder the exe is in.

    Thank you. I'll update the main thread.

    now mine simply just crashes, says "adobe director has crashed" before even getting to the loader. crashes instantly when you "ask to activate" pretty much given up at this point.

    I was able to reproduce your problem in a fresh VM and the download by @AlexHabbz solved it.

    Delete everything you previously had and use that .exe to extract the files.

    Try installing the 2010 x86 redist perhaps - make sure the browser isn't open. https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/down...s.aspx?id=8328

    And then load the Shockwave client.

    If that doesn't work then I can't help you.

    Re: Portable browser with Flash/Shockwave (Basilisk)

    Is it possible to get this working on Linux? I've tried the Linux version as well as this portable version via Wine and still cant access Flash or Shockwave content. Will a virtual machine be my only option?
