Escape Fan: Secret Forest Escape

(264 votes, average: 4.45 out of 5)

Everyone has secrets, we all know that. But it can be quite surprising that even a forest would want to hide something from the eyes of curious individuals. Of course, you can’t just walk by and leave it alone. If you look around carefully, you can see patterns all over the place. I guess they all leadt to one final and absolute justice. I wonder what it is… It seems even the animals are trying to help cover it up. Don’t trust anyone. You’re on your own. Don’t even listen to my advice… In the end, I’m just a voice in your head.

Forest Escapes are my favorite types of games, finding objects and opening portals to more beautiful scenery! I love that the scenes are actual pics of nature and wildlife and if you made 1 for everyday of the year, I’d be in my glory!! Keep ’em comin’, please!

Thanks a lot for this wonderful game! I love the sounds by opening new scenes, and i love the lovely pictures. Anyhow: i agree with Laughindaisy: 1 game of this type for everyday of the year, an i would be really happy!
Also thanks for your way to hide things – not by just miniaturizing them, but either way. This differs your games from many others, where the only way to find objects is to slide stupidly the mouse over the screen.

there is an error on the fourth screen – one of the seven crimson ribbons is missing, so it is impossible to complete the game

Again – unsubstantiated nonsense. I specifically downloaded the game and checked it out. Yes, I didn’t get through it right away – the game is not easy and you have to run for a long time through the all forest in search of it. However, in the end all 7 ribbons were found – the last one appears after finding all the ravens.

Generally speaking, the Author of all these games always made them very carefully. If they are on the site, then they are in good order. You just have to run and search properly.

Excellent game – with a minor-ish bug. The golden amber sphere remained on the screen even after it was used.

That’s what it looked like at the end. The three pinecones and the sphere stayed on screen.

It won’t be surprising if you made the same mistake: running the game using the Ruffle emulator right on this page. I repeat once again: if you don’t want bugs and slowdowns, all Flash games must first be DOWNLOADED from the page to your computer and run directly ON IT.

How do you download the games?

It’s not hard. All you need to do is to find a link with the flash file itself on the source code of the game page and download the file using this link.

I must say that I did not invent this method, but Escaper Joe himself suggested this option for flash games (not necessarily his production). I checked his instruction – it WORKS.

Thanks, I think, but I have no idea how to find a link with the flash file itself on the source code of the game page and download the file using this link. Can you talk me through it?

In fact, already knowing the method, it’s easy to Google the answers to such questions yourself. This is exactly what I did at one time on the recommendation of the respected Escaper Joe. But since everything is so complicated, I’ll tell you in more detail. Just keep in mind: I’m using a Chromium-based browser. If you have a browser on a different core, look for an analogy yourself. I’ll say one thing for sure: if you search, you’ll definitely find it.

So, you have a web page with a Flash game.

1. Here is how to open the source code of the page:

https://www.lifewire.com/view-html-source-in-chrome-3466725#:~:text=View%20Source%20Code%20in%20Chrome&text=Navigate%20to%20the%20web%20page,new%20tab %20in%20the%20browser

2. On the source code page, press “Ctrl-F” on your keyboard. In the search box, enter “.swf” (without quotes, of course). You have found a link with the Flash file we need – it will be highlighted in color. Select its fragment from the end to the nearest https and copy it to the clipboard. For example, on this particular page you should have a link:

https://gamehosting.top/games/2016/03/escape-fan-secret-forest-escape.swf

Using this link, download the Flash file to your computer – by opening it in a new tab of your browser or in any other way you are familiar with.

3. Now, if you don’t have it yet, you need Standalone (sa) Adobe Flash Player or any equivalent. I emphasize: you do not need a browser plugin, but a program for your computer. The specific option depends on your operating system and its bitness. For example, you can download from here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20220303044742if_/https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/32/flashplayer_32_sa.exe

4. That’s it! Launch Flash Player and open your Flash file (with the “swf” extension).

Thanks! I tried, but all I got when I opened the downloaded flash file was a blank screen. I clicked on file, and pasted the link in the box, but nothing happened. Oh, well, no real problem, but I appreciate your taking time to help!

If you haven’t given up yet and are willing to look into the problem to see it through to a victorious outcome, let me ask you a few clarifying questions. English is not my native language, so I may well misunderstand something. So:

1. At what stage of my instructions did you have a failure? Did you manage to open the source code of the page and download the swf-file? I suggest you compare its size: the file should be called “escape-fan-secret-forest-escape.swf” and be 6631634 bytes (or 6476 Kb).

2. What is the operating system on your computer? The player I linked to works successfully on Windows 7 and 10.

3. Have you tried running the player itself? I suggest you compare its size too: the file should be named “flashplayer_32_sa.exe” and be 15983672 bytes (or 15Mb). A running player should have the window title “Adobe Flash Player 32”.

I have Windows 10. The flash player is what you said, and so is the .swf file. When I try to open the flash download, I get a blank screen. When I double-click on the .swf file, I get a screen asking what program I want to use to open it, which I don’t know. Did I do everything right so far?

If the lengths of the player and flash file are correct and if the player itself starts without an error message in the window with the name “Adobe Flash Player 32”, then up to this point you have done everything correctly. I’m afraid your Windows firewall or antivirus is blocking further actions – I can’t tell you what exactly is stopping you. Another option is that there is a problem with the video drivers, but for the sake of the swf file working, I would not experiment with a well-functioning Windows.

But try this way. Launch the player, press “Ctrl-O” on the keyboard (this is “Open”) – a small window with an input field and a blinking cursor should appear. In this input field, enter the full path to your saved “swf” file. For example, if you have it on drive “C” in the “download” folder in your account, then the line should look like this: “c:\[insert your account name here]\download\escape-fan-secret-forest-escape.swf” (without quotes). Then in this small window click on the “OK” button.

Another option is exactly what you tried – click on the “swf” file itself. When the system asks you which program to use to open, it just needs to point to the player, choosing not the known program options, but a new one and indicating the full path to the player file. In this case, it is better to check the box like “open all swf files with this program”.

Good luck!

Correcting. Sorry, I wrote you wrong about the path to the SWF file.

If you saved the SWF file, for example, to your “Downloads” folder, then the full path to it will look like this:

c:\users\admin\downloads\escape-fan-secret-Forest-escape.swf

Where the word “admin” should be replaced with the name of your account.

Ok, I think I finally got it! So is this the best way to play the Ainars games from the past?
Thank-you very much!

Not just Ainars games. Any flash games, if they are posted on the pages of gaming sites, can be downloaded and launched using this flash player. For example, a whole bunch of flash games are on the site at this link:

http://www.myhiddengame.com/escape-games/

Ignore the claims that the Adobe Flash Player plugin is no longer supported. Games can still be downloaded from the source page using the above method.

But… I have to warn you. If you start downloading and playing a lot of games from 2014-15 by gamemasters such as Games4King, Games2Rule, WowEscape, etc., then sooner or later you will be disappointed. I’m afraid that you, like me, will not be able to understand – where did all the skill of these game masters go? Why did they create masterpieces before, but now…

This is why I have such deep respect for our Author, Escaper Joe: he is one of the very few who have not only maintained the level of his games, but even significantly improved them since then.

I think I got it! However, the only .swf file I found in the page source was the first one you told me: https://gamehosting.top/games/2016/03/escape-fan-secret-forest-escape.swf.

Here again – gaps in my English. I didn’t quite understand you.
There is only one file on a page with a flash game – it must be extracted from the source code. Just don’t forget that if there is also Ruffle on the page, then the link needs to be saved only to the swf file itself. And I gave this particular link as an example of what type of link you should look for in the source code of the page.

I guess I’m not quite there yet. If I copy the source file (https://gamehosting.top/games/2016/03/escape-fan-secret-forest-escape.swf.) and save it to my downloads, it doesn’t look like this one: c:\users\admin\downloads\escape-fan-secret-Forest-escape.swf (which would have our admin name in it). Sorry for my confusion. I know it’s hard to explain in text.

Unfortunately, this site has problems with comments. So I only read your post today.
Here’s what I wanted to say. When you save a swf-file to any folder (whatever you want), memorize the full path of this file, and then specify this path in the player. The Downloads folder, as well as the Admin account, is just an example, since I don’t know where exactly you saved your file. I just hoped that the option with the full path would be easier. But you can open the file in the player itself by following the path to the folder where you saved it.
I’m sorry if I’ve only confused you. You just need to launch the player and open the game file in it.
You can also in your Windows Explorer (not IE!) drag the file icon to the player icon – the player will open and the game will launch.

Finally, success! Dragging the file to the player icon worked! Thanks so very much for your patience and help!

Good for you, Henrietta. Just a reminder, you can find just about any Flash game at the link to the myhiddengame site I gave earlier. If you have problems with extracting the link to the actual swf-file of the game, write me – I’ll try to help.
