Saving online Flash games

Special thanks to the guys at Flipline Studios with providing us with this information!

If you're having trouble with your progress not being saved in one or all of our games, there are a few possible reasons why this could be happening. Your progress is saved with something called a "Flash cookie." This is a teeny, harmless file that the game puts on your computer that stores your game information. Something must have deleted your Flash cookies!

Check the list below to see if any of these help solve the issue for you.

Reason #1: Your Web Browser is deleting your saved games

With certain web browsers (like Internet Explorer) and the newest Flash Player, when you delete cookies in your browser it will also delete saved information for Flash games. This is actually a newer issue, as browsers added this feature within the last few months with updates, so if the problem only started happening since May 2011 this may be the cause for you.

If you have deleted your cookies recently, or set up your web browser to automatically delete cookies when you close the window, this could be the reason your saved games have disappeared.

Reason #2: Other software is deleting your saved games

Some cleaning software (such as CCleaner) may also delete your saved games. If you use cleaning software regularly, or have it scheduled to automatically clean up files on your computer, this may be why your saved games are missing. Check if there are any options to disable deleting Flash SharedObjects / LSOs / Flash Cookies in the software.

Reason #3: Flash Player is preventing you from saving your game

The first two reasons relate to existing saved games that later disappear, but if your games never save your progress, it could be a setting in the Flash Player that is preventing you from saving your game. First, check your Flash Global Storage Settings. Learn more about this here:

The image below will show settings which should work correctly. If your settings screen looks different, this may be the issue with your saved games.

Next, check your storage settings for a particular site. Learn more about this here:

On this screen, scroll through the list at the bottom and click on the site where you play the game ( and After clicking, check the slider and checkbox above to make sure you can save on this site. The image below shows settings that should work for you:

When you've finished making changes to each of these screens, you can just close the window - it automatically applies the changes without needing an "OK" button.

Reason #4: You're not playing on the same exact site

If you played the game on our site, your progress will only be remembered on our sites. Also, make sure the site address is exactly what you used last time. There may be an issue if you started playing at " " and then try to continue on " " (with the www included).

The site is done in Flash... so you can't just right click, save as like you normally would.
you have to do a screen capture (Alt + PrtScrn), paste that result into Paint (or whatever program), crop it out, save it...
from wiki:
Pressing the Print Screen key captures a screenshot of the entire desktop area, and places it in the clipboard. Pressing the combination of Alt-Print Screen captures only the current active window. Screenshots captured this way do not include the mouse pointer. By default, Windows does not save the screenshot to an image file; the user is required to paste the image into a separate imaging program (such as Microsoft Paint which is built-in) for saving
