    Unfortunately, Flash is history. I don't know of any replacements.

    Adobe scheduled the end of support for its famous Flash software on December 31st, 2020, and today is the day. While Adobe won't start blocking Flash content until January 12th, major browsers will shut it all down tomorrow and Microsoft will block it in most versions of Windows. It's over.

    The games will still work. You could try an older computer that still has flash installed.

    Maybe a windows xp machine, just don't run updates.

    Microsoft has disabled Flash.

    By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash.

    Are there any different types of arcade set ups that don't require flash?

    Nothing that I'm aware of. I know you are disappointed but it is a Microsoft issue, the games still work if you can find a browser or workaround to play them. My guess is at some point someone will figure something out, but again, it's not a forum issue at all. I didn't turn off flash.

    I knew it wasn't you as I play games other places as well.

    I have a couple of Linux games and Candy Crush was working last time I checked.
