Flash games in program

Posted 13 September 2009 - 09:04 PM

I have my program working that loads flash movies and games for my son to play offline. Some of the games have http links in them. Is there any way that still allows playing the game without launching a webpage request?

I have no code for this part of the program because I don't know where to look. I think I am just looking on how to block requests for launching anything outside of the program, or catching the request while my program is running, but not quite sure what to do.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Hi narmer93,

Actually my problem isn't downloading them, it's blocking whatever is being requested when the game or movie is playing and an embedded link is clicked. All the games I am downloading for him are saved in a directory. An Access file holds the name of the game/movie, and a small picture. The name and picture are displayed on the data repeater, which pressing a play button will play the data repeaters selection.

I think the swf files can be decompiled, but that is a lot to do for every game/movie, when it is probably just easier to block an http request that is being made from the program. I think that's what I'm looking for, but just no sure.

Thanks :)

actually it doesn't seem to be the proper forum or at least not the proper area. this area is for vb.net questions. maybe ask in a different area or maybe in yahoo answers, that may be helpful

Well, I was thinking since I am using VB.NET to make this program, someone might have an idea of what I should look for relating to VB.NET, and blocking a request. But I have searched for "blocking http requests" as well as several other things I thought it would be, but no luck.

But it seems like several of my other questions on this forum, which aren't necessarily code-related, remain unresponded to until I figure the issue out. I make certain to search thoroughly before even posting, but perhaps I'm just not phrasing anything right :(
