In an attempt to push browser-based games, Adobe have announced Flash Player 11.2 and AIR 3.2. This update should allow developers to create advanced 3D games.
The new flash player comes with a handy feature, auto-update. This will ensure the smooth running of games without users having to manually update to the latest version. Flash Player 11.2’s new features include mouse-lock, relative mouse co-ordinates and right/middle click support as well as multithreaded video decoding which Adobe have announced will enable “seamless, smooth playback of full HD video”.
Flash is coming to IOS and Android devices thanks to AIR 3.2. Adobe claims this will bring “jaw-dropping visuals with efficient, 1000x faster native GPU rendering performance in your pocket”.
As an incentive to developers, Adobe isn’t charging for Flash 11.2’s premium features until their app hits £31,000 in revenue. After that it will skim nine percent off the app’s earnings. Meanwhile, AIR apps making use of premium features won’t be charged at all.
