Not sure how savvy I am but since the game is played thru the browser window, don't the OS and PC control how and where the browser and Flash Player are processed?
Is it likely that an OS will be written just to change how a defunct flash screen is processed ? Please give me a "DUH-H !"
Is it likely that a PC will be designed just to change how a defunct flash screen is processed ? Please give me a "DUH-H !"
Since Flash is now dead, that's not going to be changed. Are browser providers likely to change the way they are processed? I don't think it is up to them. Browsers have switched from Flash to HTML5 now so they couldn't care less. They only still allow the use of Flash for providers (WGT) and our convenience
Seems to me that the only thing to be done is for WGT to write something to switch to HTML5 version to replace the Flash version.
I agree that WGT will be surprised when they start losing players because of the Flash player vulnerabilities be exploited by some hacker to spread malware/Trojans/viruses to WGT users. If they are counting on other users to replace them, they are SERIOUSLY deluded because... it's not like they have new users "just waiting in the wings for a chance to get in on the action"..... or are they limiting the number of users allowed to sign up and play ? I don't think so !
Bottom line: If WGT wants to continue to have at least the same number of users it has today, the game client MUST be re-written with something to replace Flash Player !
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
