If you use Chrome to play AstroFlux, you may notice performance issues. Chrome uses a custom Flash player, called PepperFlash, which does not play well with AstroFlux. If you replace this PepperFlash, it will reduce stuttering/lag and will generally speed things up.
PepperFlash can be easily disabled and Adobe Flash Player plugin can be installed in its place. The but a problem that many people have encountered is that PepperFlash keeps re-enabling itself, especially when a Chrome update takes place. These instructions should keep this from happening. Please note that this will only work with a system-wide installation of Google Chrome installed to its default location in C:\Program Files:
- Download and install Adobe Flash Player plug-in from the following address: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?fpchrome. Remember to un-tick the box to install McAfee Security Scan Plus.
- Once the installation is complete, close and re-open Chrome, then type about:plugins into the Chrome address bar at the top of the screen and press enter.
- Click the + symbol next to Details in the top right corner of the page that appears.
- On the left of the page, under the heading Adobe Flash Player, there should be two versions of Flash Player showing: The PepperFlash version that is stored in the Chrome program folder and the plug-in version that is stored in the Windows folder. Click on the Disable link underneath the PepperFlash listing.
- Download the following file:https://sites.google.com/site/wintegrity01/ChromeLaunch.zip. Unzip the file, then double click on INSTALL. This will place another icon on the desktop called ChromeLaunch with a golden Chrome icon. Double clicking this icon to launch Chrome should ensure that PepperFlash remains disabled.
- As ChromeLaunch makes a modification to the folder in which Chrome is installed, administrator rights are required. Click on Yes or Continue if a warning message appears when double clicking the icon.
- Your Anti-virus scanner may detect unusual activity because ChromeLaunch is making a change to a system folder. The program must be able to make these changes to be able to work.
