flashpoint-infinity has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
Congratulations! This package passed automatic validation review without flagging on any issues the validator currently checks. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.

flashpoint-infinity has failed automated package testing (verification).
Please visit https://gist.github.com/637fc3eccfaee8ef74ca09d1d32d4b68 for details.
The package status will be changed and will be waiting on your next actions.

  • NEW! We have a test environment for you to replicate the testing we do. This can be used at any time to test packages! See https://github.com/chocolatey-community/chocolatey-test-environment
  • Please log in and leave a review comment if you have questions and/or comments.
  • If you see the verifier needs to rerun testing against the package without resubmitting (a issue in the test results), you can do that on the package page in the review section.
  • If the verifier is incompatible with the package, please log in and leave a review comment if the package needs to bypass testing (e.g. package installs specific drivers).
  • Automated testing can also fail when a package is not completely silent or has pop ups (AutoHotKey can assist - a great example is the VeraCrypt package).
  • A package that cannot be made completely unattended should have the notSilent tag. Note that this must be approved by moderators.

We've found flashpoint-infinity v10.1 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move flashpoint-infinity v10.1 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.


BlueMaxima's Flashpoint is a webgame preservation project dedicated to preserving as many experiences from web
platforms, including but not limited to Adobe Flash, as possible, so that they aren't lost to time.

Flashpoint utilizes a strong selection of open-source software. By combining the power of Apache, a custom-built
launcher, and our own application called the Flashpoint Secure Player, we can play web-based media in a quick,
user-friendly environment without leaving permanent changes or security holes on your computer.

Flashpoint Infinity is a smaller distribution of the Flashpoint Launcher (FPL) that allows you to download and play
content at will.


Package Parameters

The following package parameter can be set:

  • /AddToDesktop - this puts a shortcut on your desktop to Flashpoint.

For example: --params "/AddToDesktop".
