Hi there Habbo’s,
So if you know… Adobe Flash Player will leave us in 2020, but what happens to our loyal game from our childhood? You will read it all in this article. So read on dear habbos!

“First we have to solve the problem of Flash, so perhaps Habbo itself will be updated more? I think the core remains the same as what it is now. ”
Habbo has already made a technological change that went unnoticed
Many users expect that after the end of Flash the technology for Habbo will be changed to HTML5 or Unity or even other modern game environments. However, Habbo has already made a re-planning attempt with the mobile version launched in 2013, running under AIR technology and not using Flash, although some of the code is identical to the desktop version. For this they had to be approached one by one gradually, as happened with the change from Shockwave to Flash in 2009.
After the end of Flash, Adobe states that it will use its efforts to improve AIR.
Although AIR is lower in performance than compared to other options, Adobe has indicated that they intend to increase efforts in this technology to increase to integrate new functions that will improve the properties of the applications in the coming years.

Now that the game engine will change, this will be one of the biggest changes in Habbo history ever. The change will happen between two totally different platforms.
The last platform change we saw was in 2009 (Habbo Beta) when the transition went to Adobes Shockwave flash.
Just like in 2009, the interface will also clean up and improve the interface, as well as a number of new functions such as AR technology using mobile applications.
We expect that soon there will soon be more news from Sulake itself, and the first tests will happen.
Among the planned improvements are:
* 64-bit support.
* DirectX11 support for AIR in desktop applications.
* Increased memory limit GPU textures.
* Resolution improvements for AIR desktop applications.
* GPU rendered mode for AIR desktop.
* Updated support for iOS11 and Android O.
As you can see, most improvements will go to the version of AIR for desktop, as well as the support they currently have for iOS and Android. Anyway, the ability to play from the browser as we did / did so far would be unlikely, because it would not be strange that Habbo should launch an executable file on the desktop (such as runescape, second life, …)
