"The boys with their new lord and master Sunset PlayButt."

From the homestarrunner.com post-Flash update:

Keep in mind, Ruffle is still in development so not everything works perfectly. Games made after, say 2007, will probably be pretty janky but Ruffle plans on ulitmately supporting those too one day. And any cartoons with video elements in them (Puppet Jams, death metal) will just show you an empy box where the video should be.

Ruffle is a Flash Player emulator written in Rust. The project is designed to allow the playback of Flash files after the discontinuation of Flash Player by Adobe after December 2020. On December 31, 2020, homestarrunner.com was updated to run most content within embedded Ruffle players, rather than the embedded Flash players used prior.

The first mention of Ruffle was on September 18, 2019, when the @StrongBadActual Twitter account began helping with the emulator's development by suggesting improvements. On April 6, 2020, when asked about the fate of Easter eggs, Strong Bad responded "I'm putting all my easter eggs in the Ruffle basket." On November 19, 2020, Internet Archive announced that they were preserving Flash content using Ruffle, prompting a short video from Strong Bad the next day.

While Ruffle offers wide compatibility with Flash playback, the project has limited compatibility with ActionScript, the built-in programming language for Flash files. Multiple pages have warnings in place in cases where the toon or game may be compatibility issues with Ruffle.

On most pages, this message is generally displayed at the bottom:

'What is that big play button' you ask? Well, Flash is all kinds of dead! But the amazing Ruffle project helps our cartoons live on! Not every cartoon and game works perfectly just yet so be patient and expect some jankiness here and there while we keep a-workin!

Pages with compatibility issues

Main Page 24 on Ruffle
The FAQ is extra broke currently. But don't worry! Ruffle is all the time updated and striving and sometimes fighting to work with ALL the old Flash styles. Thanks for your patience and at least you get to enjoy that great fanart cover image!
BEWARE! THIS GAME IS BROKE! On a good day Hallrunner kinda seems like it doesn't work so this version is extra problematic. Be patient and maybe someday soon we'll run these halls together again!
This main page is MESSED UP! Currently, Ruffle doesn't support Actionscript 3 which is what made the blurry stuff blurry on this page. All the links should work, the main joke of the page won't though. Also, the "new button" and little "homepages menu" don't show up either. Sorry! Thx4patience!
BEWARE! THIS GAME IS BROKE! We're still working on getting Ruffle and Peasant's Quest to love one another so thanks for your patience. Parts of the game sorta work though. You can walk around and type stuff. But you can't go inside any buildings and picking up objects is weird too. Have fun?!
WARNING! This game is currently SUPER BROKE and might crash your browser if you try and play any levels except your favorites 3.1 and 3.2! But hopefully we can make it work with Ruffle someday soon. Hey! At least you can still watch cutscenes, the awesome intro cinematic, and read the manual for more hot tips!
