Edit 4/2021: I'm pretty sure the program automates this process now and you should have no further need for it, however, I'm going to leave this post up for posterity's sake.
So while NG is busy automating the Flash patching process, I got bored (since we're still in a pandemic and all) and decided to write a little program that does it in the mean time. This program should automate a lot of the patching process laid out here.
If you're having trouble getting Flash to work, you can download my program here.
NOTE: It currently only works for Windows machines.
To use it, extract the files out of the zip and run "ReFlash.exe", then hit the "Patch" button!
It's worth noting that my program isn't officially endorsed in any capacity; I was just really bored and thought it might be a useful tool.
If anyone has any issues or suggestions, let me know and I'll see what I can do!

I hope everyone is doing good! I'm still working on contract far away from the comfort of my own bed; however, I've been using this time as a way to hyper-focus my efforts on personal projects.
This year has been a gauntlet of struggle for everyone, and I can only say I hope that 2021 will be a little less....gauntlet-y? Only time will tell on that one!
I hope your holidays are spent warmly and at a safe distance!

What's up folks?
It's been some crazy months, huh? I've spent my last few months in rural Louisiana working at quarantine sites, in fact, that's where I am now!
At the moment my jobs pretty easy, but boring as hell. The only thing there is to look at around here is the corn fields. The corn is my only friend.
Between being bored and homesick, I thought I'd post something here because I haven't in some time.
I've also been listening to a lot of weird bluegrass to complement the corn.
How's everyone holding up in these crazy times?

Well hey there, NG!
I don't blog on here often, but I've got a very rare "break from real life" so I thought I'd write a little thing about what I've been up to.
This can mostly be condensed down into "WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK", but there's been some fun interlaced.
An example of "fun" is this test film some friends and I did. It's not meant to really "be" anything, but it was a good way to test out some new equipment and get a feel for what we want to do. Yessss, the camera work is shakey. Our stabilizer wasn't here yet so we improvised!
That being said, we're currently writing a new thing that I hope is going to be really cool. I won't talk about it too much yet, because there's a lot still up in the air, but ultimately our goal is to tour it at festivals (hopefullly).
Uhhh, other stuff, other stuff...
YouTube is a trashtacular platform for film-quality anything. It's always kind of been a long-running joke that YT rapes production quality, this is especially true when shooting with a Black Magic Cinema Camera. The difference is palpable.
I still come here often, I just have a tendency to lurk due to my job's demanding nature.
Anywho, see y'all on the next one!
