Categorization

I've been categorizing a lot of flashes lately, which had me wondering how effective my efforts are. Does my single attempt to remove a flash from an improper category have effect? How long does it take? There's a bunch of flashes that have been put in all categories (or just 'gay')...

Thanks for making such a comprehensive reply. Looking back, there's still a bunch in all the quick categories...
http://swfchan.com/19/92985/?kaon+mouse+tur+batio n.swf and http://swfchan.com/25/122446/?DOOM.swf are just a couple that I know I went through.

I found an issue and have fixed it, that should do it (until a new problem comes along). Hopefully new categorizations by you will be processed as they should. Let me know if you still can't put flashes into categories! Try a couple that noone has categorized yet (they don't have any green text below the thumbnail on the page with the GET FILE button) and see if they can be put into the right categories.

I think your categorizations for those two flashes that you linked to has been inserted into the database, but I'm not sure if the votes were enough to change the categories that the flashes were in. I've added them into the correct categories myself just to be safe.

No the server isn't hosted on my home connection, the old mirror server that I used to make use of was hosted at someone's bredbandsbolaget connection. Since I started using CloudFlare he withdrew since he had been wanting to do that for some time and felt that it was a good time to do so. That server might still be online as far as I know but it doesn't have anything to do with swfchan anymore.

As for what the money goes to: Hosting of the main server, bandwidth, domains, a buffer for new server parts from time to time and that new server in Hungary that was set up this month (to mirror flashes in the porn category, maybe more later). Plus of course myself so I will feel motivated to continue maintaining the site and developing ...

I've used afraid.org before for the swfchan DNS records and I'm using it right now for some stuff (not for swfchan though). Note that they only provide free DNS nameservers, they don't give you a free domain name of your choice. They're a fantastic place to get free subdomains, however since I want to use swfchan.com, swfchan.net and swfchan.org I gotta pay for it with an actual domain registrar.

Glad you like it, unfortunately you can't use it locally though because it's done with JavaScript and only works in your browser.

If you want to play flash files on your computer with a seekbar you can use for example Media Player Classic. It doesn't do so well for games since some keyboard keys in the game will overlap with the media player's shortcut-keys, but overall it's alright if the flash only require some input from the mouse at most. Works great for skipping ahead in the flash file's main timeline.

>>localhost  24oct2012(we)01:38  No.4794 
No, yes, I mean, thank You, I know Guliverkli/MPC (you can edit the shortcuts, btw).

I thought, maybe, I can use it locally - in my browser. You know, to not bother your bandwidth. There are no stand-alone SWF players with a seekbar for Linux. You can imagine my disappointment after being used to Media Player Classic (which works, but some codecs (like, Flash) won't install properly).

Random nub-lit looking for answers

Exactly how can I start a wiki thread for a game if I can't search for it here on the .org?

Because hanging around bumping threads in 4chan is not going to help.

 
 Replies: 2. Files: 0. [Reply]
 
>>Anonymous  8aug2012(we)07:08  No.4097 
You "start a wiki thread" by uploading the flash to either http://boards.4chan.org/f/ or http://swfchan.org/fap.shtml and then asking for which game it is from. swfchan will find your thread and associate it to the right wiki automatically within a few minutes/hours. People can then post comments to the flash you uploaded and maybe help you out if you are lucky.

To upload a flash to 4chan.org or here on swfchan.org you need first download it from swfchan.com to your hard disk (select download option and then press the GET FILE button). Then you can browse to it on your computer when uploading it.

However I can tell you the source of the flash that you are asking about right here in this thread (since the information needed is in the file name and can be found on the Internet):

I don't remember you from the donation thread, I remember you from the ad thread. Nobody has made a post in the donation thread yet. =)

Captchas are only shown every now and then, not every time you download a flash. But if you have loaded 50 flashes or something and don't get a captcha, that's when there might be a bug somewhere. I'm assuming that you are talking about on swfchan.com? There are no captchas on swfchan.org when you are viewing a flash because this domain is built to be an imageboard, and you shouldn't have to solve captchas to see uploads on imageboards.

I'm afraid I can't tell you the solution swfchan uses to read the ActionScript (to avoid potential trouble, I have to upgrade it some year though since it can't handle the now-not-so-new AS3) but I can recommend "Sothink SWF Decompiler", it does a pretty good job. It's not free though. There are some free alternatives around but I have lost the names of them (someone remember?), it was a quite a while since I decompiled a flash now. I'm assuming you're using AS2?

But wait a minute, you're not trying to decompile a SWF - it's a FLA project? Try to change the file name extension to .zip and extract it, perhaps you can find your ActionScript in a "DOMDocument.xml" file there somewhere? Open it in notepad and check. I've never tried ...

MackanZoor -- compression

The site detects whether files are compressed or not, so why not compress them if they aren't? You'd save disk space and bandwidth, and the files wouldn't experience any loss. It's not really necessary to preserve the files bit-for-bit as long as the content remains undamaged.

It's not hard, and in fact you already have portable C++ code to do it -- it's RAR'd in MadHax_destink100.swf. Link zlib, include src/swf.h, then do something like this:

Not to mention that said bitfields are not byte aligned so you end up with variables spanning half the bits of one byte and half of another. Yeah, not fun.

Kind of disappointed that you're not compressing them to keep duplicates from arising. IMO it would be beneficial to the Internet if people started spreading smaller versions and the larger versions dropped into obscurity. Were there a problem with duplicates being uploaded to /f/, it might give them incentive to fix their system.

Still, how about optimization? There was a recent trend of very large files uploaded that were simple cell-shaded line drawings, the aforementioned worst case eating 15.4MiB for 22 frames. It doesn't compress with the standard compression because the imag ...

I do understand your point and appreciate your suggestion but that would be a lot of work for a result that I don't really want (different file versions). Just the amount of testing that would be needed to make sure it works in 100% of all cases would be huge. Poorly optimized flash files are a bitch but to put so much effort into saving a couple of MiB in the year 2011 would be a little silly, especially since Internet will keep getting faster with each year. Here in Sweden people where I live now do have the option of getting a 1 Gbps connection at home and I expect in two years it will be cheap enough for most to actually have it even though they don't really need it.

I'd be willing to do the actual work of coding the filter, but alright, it ultimately comes down to the issue of duplicates.

It's worth noting that Internet speeds aren't that great everywhere. Here in McBurgerObeseFattyLand there are still large regions where the only available connection is dialup (!), others where the only telecom doesn't give a damn and the connection spontaneously craps out for days at a time (I'm one of those lucky people), lackluster wifi hotspots, slow connections on portable devices, and usage caps (my parents are stuck with a meager 8GB/month, and even my relatively decent 10Mbps connection is capped at 100GB/month).

SWFChan tech.

I'm considering adding a system to my existing website that thumbnails SWFs. However, the only way that appears to be viable is to start up a browser from the application server and take a picture of the SWF while it runs. My server is headless (I.E. it barely has the ability to run a desktop, and I turned that off to save resources), so that isn't a possibility.

I've looked at Ming, but that only creates swfs. ffmpeg-php is a possibility, but it only handles embedded FLVs. I'm running out of options.

How does SWFchan make snapshots of their flash movies?

Sorry mate, trade secret.

Hehe, just kidding. I'm actually using a very old dll file that I got licensed to me years ago to use on a old version of worldspace.nu (one of my other sites). In those days I had the first flash site online that actually automated the screenshots, of course that was just from my own observations (I couldn't find any other swf site that had screenshots that the users/admin didn't have to take and upload manually).

I can't recall where I got it from however, 5-7 years ago I got it... But it was for free, one only had to contact them to get his personal license a day later. Should turn up as a result if you search around a few minutes I suppose, these days there should be lots of alternatives. The dll solution ...

I had to do something like this for 7chan. I figured SWFchan used some windows only solution, so I wrote a quick project in Flex that would take a flash file via flashvars, grab the number of frames, divide it by 2, and output the frame to the canvas as BitmapData. When an swf file is uploaded, it runs a shell script spawns the standalone linux flashplayer in a Xvfb server, takes a screenshot and crops out all the unimportant stuff using Imagemagick.

Unfortunately it suffers the same limitation as swfchan: if a movie is pure actionscript this method won't work because these movies typically have only 1 or 2 frames, neither of which have any usable data that can be converted into BitmapData.

Another option, if the above fails, is to take the swf, play it for x amount of seconds, then take a screenshot. This should help for the many cases where depending on framecount won't work.

Neat! I hadn't noticed that 7chan now has screenshots for its flash files. Looking stylish.

The solution I have in my head involves your last line. Was thinking of letting the flash file actually startup in memory and then seek to various places for the screenshots without unloading it, which will produce better results than jumping directly to a frame in the time line, take a screen, quit, and repeat. It should be fail-safe except maybe for a few rare ActionScript frames that could get stuck in an endless loop, but then it's just a matter to take another frame or fallback on the old dll.
