- Why can't Firefox run local .swf files? 2 answers
I'm a Linux newbie and I know I might be doing something that I'd rather be doing on Windows. But I use Ubuntu on a daily basis, like how I used to do the same with Mint. I'm not much of a gamer, in fact, I'm not a gamer at all, but I do play visual novels from time to time.
I thought I'd try out one called Area-X this time. I remember playing a similar game on Windows (by the same people) and just like the other one this is a ".swf" game. Is there any way I can run this game like how Windows runs it like an .exe or in Firefox like a flash game?
I tried copying the directory address and pasting it on Firefox's URL bar but it shows me the "opening file" screen where you save/open files. It doesn't run the way it does by default on Windows, which is totally understandable since I'm using a different OS.
I'd like to just switch to my Windows, but it just broke out of the blue, literally. I haven't done anything to trigger it, it's like when you touch something and it shatters. But that's for another topic and I don't have any interest in restoring it.
If there's no way of running it on Linux I completely understand. Thanks! :)
