    Jack, any chance you can find the direct link to the SWF for Match Point Tennis? It doesn't seem to work - Candystand seems to use a wrapper SWF to get the game.

    I'd appreciate any help! Thanks bro!

    Hey Jack, I tried your idea - also tried using a SWF downloader (sothink) - but doesn't seem to work for Match Point Tennis. Candystand seems to use a "wrapper" SWF - any chance you know the direct link to the SWF file for the game? Thanks bro!

    Hi guys, I tried everything so far with some games. First one is splitter 2 and then the games from (those from candystand can be saved but can't be played). Splitter 2 looks like is "splitted" in very tiny pieces... K I understand...But the games that I already download e.g. parking-shuffle.swf (which has 2.99 MB) is unable to play (opera firefox or explorer) just freeze... Ther were some games that after a few seconds had to right click them and hit the play button (IDK why) but now looks that doesn't work anymore...I tried live http page source code everything that I tried before and worked on any site...Is there a new catch so we can't play online games, offline???? E.g. Pls If u know anything let me know..Meanwhile I will Keep searching Thank You!!!

      I suggest that you post this as a new question. Please refer to this original question. When you post this comment as a new question, please share which software / browser versions you're using to play the downloaded games.

    The simplest thing to do is to look into the games source code. In your web browser, select view-->source. Once the HTML appears, press control+f to open the find dialog box. Then search for .swf

    For example, I want to save and play this game offline:

    I first open of the source code, find .swf
    There are about 5 results. I browse through them all and find this

    Then all you have to do is to download this file through a download manager (or some how make the link click-able to you can save the file.

    This link will also work:

    I hope this helped you.

    You can do this for almost any flash site - I first about this method on when I wanted to save their video clips because it took to long to load to show my friends on dialup.

        The URL you provided me works. I can play the game.
        The only thing with using this method is that you may not be able to upload your score. So just keep that in mind.

      I've tried doing this with the Shuffle Bowl game on that site but am having no luck. What am I doing wrong?
