Enabling Flash Debugger in Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a nice little browser, fast as hell, and it even bundles and updates its Flash plugin all by itself.

On the plus side, it means anyone running Chrome will always have the most up-to-date version of Flash player so good news for Flash game developers and web developers alike.

On the down side however, the Flash plugin it bundles itself with is the release build and you can’t use the Flash debugger with the release build. This caused a bit of pain for us when we tried to debug our Flash games in Chrome, but luckily we found a way to get around this in two simple steps:

1. open a new tab and type in about:plugins

2. you should see two entries for Shockwave Flash, disable the one in C:\Users\xxx\AppData

And viola!

 

P.S. you can download the Flash player and debugger here.

Happy New Year! :-)

Hello!

Welcome to my blog! It’s Xmas and with so much time on my hands, I thought this might be as good a time to start a blog as any!

What am I gonna blog? Well, imagine this, you’re going through your favorite blogs/websites and you read something cool, but when it comes to a time you can actually apply it in your line of work you can’t remember where you read it in the first place!

This has happened to me so much I had started to simply bookmark everything I come across which I think might be useful later on, but that results in a rather long and disorganized list of bookmarks which doesn’t really make life any easier… so I’ve been meaning to start blogging things I learn (in a way that I can understand of course) and hopefully it’ll help others who are in a similar position as me.
