FLASH PLAYER

Ok Flash was needed when you ran Coopt
BUT FLASH NO LONGER WORKS
Adobe said they had told Games user 3 Years ago it was going to be Dropped
and they had that time to develop a In house work around
But DID EA do any thing about it
NO

So how do we now use COOPT option when we want to look at a base layout. Eith for Attacking or looking for a New Base layout

    Exactly why would EA or Envision do anything? It's not a part of the game, they didn't write the flash routine and don't actively support additions to the game via Flash or scripts.

    There are other programs /scripts out there that do the same thing too so it isn't unique.

    I agree, it would have been nice to have such functions built into the game but that is true for many other scripts too.

    Mine too. There is a simple trick with system date, that’s allows to run any flash page :)

    @gamerdruid
    You are correct only in one thing. It's a third party solution so no support from EA or Envision.
    However there are no working alternatives at the moment. I meant fully working, of course you have some partially working sites/plugins but in that case partially is unusable. So the flash version is the only one that worked property.

    So we need independent develpopers. I hope that this will be solved soon.

    That is one of the alternatives I was referring to. I note the conversation about level 80 and would point out that not all new worlds will have the enhanced level 80 limit.

    I could not call it alternative when it doesn’t work in all cases. CnC-TA-Opt doesn’t work also on words with old economy. So it's most certain not universal, then it's basically unusable. Just as I write before, no alternatives at the moment just partial solutions.
  • @Polux37 Can you post link to a world with old economy, please. Tks.

    Unless you have an account on a world with the old economy you won't be able to log in. All of the old economy worlds are closed. Posting a link wouldn't help.

    Ok. I'll leave out the old economy stuff in the cnctaopt.com for now. If I need the data, I'll use the old cncopt.com site (is it still accurate for old economy worlds?).
  • From what I gather there are some thid party alternatives sprung up in the meantime. Rust is a standalone Flash-emulator. There are other alternatives, such as Ruffle etc. so if the original developers of the tool want to maintain the it, I'm sure they can port it over.

  • i think if u use a old old cnc opt script in the old world .it could work
  • When you click on another players base you get a drop down menu and one of the options is VIEW BASE this requires flash player
    Now is this Option VIEW BASE part of main program or a 3rd party
    If part of CnC program surely the Devs can sort the problem out. If 3rd Party then is a knackered option
  • mmm strange i don't get a "View Base" button i only get these 3 views as per attachments depending if it is a forgotten layout a player from an other alliance or a player from same alliance

    https://prnt.sc/xpy4cf Forgotten base

    https://prnt.sc/xpy4yf Player from a different alliance

    https://prnt.sc/xpy5n7 Player from same alliance

    VISIT base is part of the CnC:TA main code and was introduced into the game via a patch quite some time ago and does not require Flash player or other code. This allows you to visit the base of a member of your alliance only, even if they are not close to you. The CnC:Opt system would also allow viewing of enemy or forgotten bases.

    I think @gamerdruid has already explained it in several forum threads but I will try to bring everything said in them here.

    - Adobe Flash Player is an external product to the game
    - Has been abandoned by its creators
    - If you had it installed, it continues to work by activating the corresponding options in your browser
    - It has become a serious security hole for the systems in which it is still being used, the manufacturer itself advises its uninstallation
    - CnCOpt is an external product to the game
    - Use Flash Player to function properly
    - There are some attempts to create a similar tool that does not use Flash Player but it is not as advanced as the original

    @EE_elephterion has commented that there are some Flash Player emulators in development.
    - These emulators are external to the game itself
    - The level of integration with the scripts is not clear
    - There is no guarantee of reliability and safety on them
    - Envision is not, in any case, responsible for the use of them; this information should be taken only as information for external developers
    Not a part of EA / Envision teams - My comments are only mine.
