A downloadable project for Windows, macOS, and Linux
This project is discontinued. It is not receiving updates.
Red Rogue was built in Flash. Flash saves a limited amount of data to your computer's setting folder. To exceed that limit, one must visit a website - one that Adobe has removed. Thus the game will break if you continue to play it, and it cannot be fixed.
If you want to edit the limit of Flash's storage limit you will need a hex editor. I found these instructions here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/flash-player/how-can-i-hack-abobe-flash-player-stupid-local-storage-default-so-it-will-always-be-unlimited/td-p/4356097?page=1
This is a user 'hack' and thus *NOT CERTIFIED BY ADOBE* or any close affiliates!!!
This procedure also requires hacking a binary file so you need a hex editor.
1. Use your browser "Clear Recent History" options to delete all cookies, site preferences, cache, etc from your browsing history and *close* your browser.
2. Use Windows "My Computer" to browse your local file system to this path:
3. Use a suitable Hex Editor to open and hack the 'settings.sol' file. I use a free editor called "WinVI".
( If you need it: http://www.winvi.de/ )
4. Go to the bottom of that 'settings.sol' file and look for 'defaultklimit'. The hex line should look like this:
64 65 66 61 75 6c 74 6b 6c 69 6d 69 74 00 40 59 defaultklimit.@Y
5. Very very carefully edit the '40' to new '60' value so your line now looks like this:
64 65 66 61 75 6c 74 6b 6c 69 6d 69 74 00 c0 00 defaultklimit. À
6. Double check to make sure the file size did not change during the edit in step 5. If it did then exit out without saving, come back in and try again. When you are sure your file size did not change after the edit, then save and exit out of the Hex Editor.
You should now have a new 'unliminted' storage default that remains even after browser option to clear all cache, site preferences, cookies, etc.
If you totally mess up the file, DON'T PANIC. Just delete the 'settings.sol' file and Flash Player will create a new file to replace it -- no worries, but do keep in mind this is a user 'hack' and thus *NOT CERTIFIED BY ADOBE* or any close affiliates!!!
If you use Linux, Mac or other OS then you might check this page to learn the location of that 'settings.sol' file:
Developing this game made me extremely miserable. I'm glad people like it, but I have no intention of revisiting it. Please do not ask me to work on it again.
Descend into the Dungeon of Chaos, retrieve the Amulet of Yendor, kill all who stand in your way, and return with your prize.
