If it easy to get Substance working with your Rome Fantasy packs after the changes to Substance? Do we still need to read instructions to get PostProcessing set up? Any other issues with installing your packs on Unity?

Adobe to Shut Down Flash at the End of 2020
26 July, 2017

Adobe is going to end support for its plugin Flash. With partners like AppleFacebookGoogleMicrosoft and Mozilla, the company is going to stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to the new open formats.

There are also a number of small-scale changes coming ahead of that plan that you should also be aware of. Adobe states the team is looking for ways to “move more aggressively to end of life Flash” in certain locations where unlicensed, outdated, and largely less secure versions of its player are widely distributed.

Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Safari are working now to slowly get rid of Flash ahead of the 2020 deadline to ease the transition. Users will now be asked if they want to load Flash-based objects on a website more and more frequently.

Google plans to start prompting users for permission to load Flash more often and will eventually shut down the plugin for users that continuously decline. Likewise, AppleMicrosoft, and Mozilla also have similar plans.

What is more, Facebook has released a blog post on how its web-based platform can migrate projects from Flash to HTML5. Flash games will continue to work on Facebook until 2020, but the company suggested some ways for developers to migrate their games in the coming years.
