Playing Stick Arena After Flash End of Life

Hey Everyone!

Here is some info I’ve learned from others about playing SA after Flash EOL:

Steam works (so far)! This was confirmed on a Windows 10 computer when some SA clients stopped working.

If steam does not work for you try these steps:
Flash Projector Tool (confirmed to work on Windows, need more people to test for Macintosh)

  1. Go to Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads
  2. Click on “Download the Flash Player Projector” for your operating system
  3. Double click on the file and a white box appears go to file > open

    4.Type or copy the direct link to the swf file you want to play:
    A. for SA Dimensions
    B. for SA Ballistic

SA Clients that have been found to not work:

  1. Euro Anti Cheat
  2. Project Helvian
  3. ASAP
  4. Fearless Anti Cheat
  5. Trainers

Try all the options out and let the SA Community know what is working and not working for you!

Is SA Working for You?

Google Chrome with Adobe Flash Player (Final Version)

Mozilla Firefox with Adobe Flash Player

It looks like it depends on what version of the Flash Player you have installed. Only a minor change in versions makes a difference.


it would also work (and probably easier to do) if you have a windows 7. just uninstall current flash and install older version

Adobe already took down the Archived Flash Player versions page:

So use the Wayback Machine provided by the Internet Archives:*/

I always play on steam so it does work for me luckily :smiley:
Really happy that Stick arena & Stick RPG are both on steam.

If you have Stick RPG 2 (Director’s Cut) bought and downloaded it should be able to run without steam I think.

Initial topic has been edited that includes instructions to utilize the flash developer tool to play SA if steam does not work for you. These steps have worked for multiple Windows users. We are looking for Mac users to test this to see if it will work!

Turns out literally setting your system clock to a day before the 12th will allow flash to work

Obviously this may screw over anything that uses local time but at least it works I guess.
(once you start the game you can set it back and it’ll still work)


Well it’s working for now
