Adobe doesn't think Flash is dying quickly enough



  • So they decided to start bundling it with scare-ware.


  • Winner of the 2016 Presidential Election

    On the video he clicks on an ad on the installation successful page and installs another executable from the ad. So TRWTF is Adobe's advertisers. It was not bundled.





  • I like the memory leaks that hold ram hostage part, that just appealed to me.  Ed Bott did an excellent job tearing apart System Checkup.  I bet we could have a lengthy discussion about having programs like this screwing with your registry.

    FTFY

    I did not read that whole wall of text. Are they going to start charging you if the flash game you build makes you a lot of money?

    That seems to be the gist of it. I always knew Adobe was retarded and Flash was shit, but now we have the proof.

    It appears that Adobe wants 9% of any revenue over $50,000 if you use certain "premium features".  But the explanation doesn't seem to make much sense, which I suppose is par for the course with Adobe.   In one section they say: @Adobe said:
    What are the premium features?

    The initial version of premium features includes the ability to use domain memory in combination with Stage3D hardware acceleration in Flash Player.

    Immediately followed by: @Adobe said:

    What is NOT considered part of the premium features?

    The following uses are NOT considered premium and there is no revenue share required for these uses:

    Use of domain memory alone,

    Use of hardware accelerated Stage3D features alone

    So apparently you can you one of those features alone and not pay Adobe anything, but if you use both of them together then Adobe gets a cut of your money, as illustrated in this handy chart:

    Those aren't contradictory; they same the same thing. For now, "premium features" means using both. I don't know what either "Stage 3D" or "Domain Memory" mean, so I can't help you there.

    i don't know what "Stage 3D" or "Domain Memory" are either and I didn't mean to imply that they were contradictory.  Since you can apparently use one or the other alone, for free, the first question that occured to me was "how does Adobe know that I am using them both at the same time".

    It's probably pretty easy to determine from the SWF file. So they could set up a web crawler to find people using both features (or else just check on a case-by-case basis when they find a popular, revenue-generating Flash program).
