208 Boons Online

Hey Booners,

We've come to the decision that it's time to pull the plug. Sometime in the this year, we'll be completely closing down the Flash client (app/desktop client).

This is not a decision that has come easily. Habboon has now run consistently for 10 years, with no hard-data resets, and has maintained an active Flash client all this time.

However, regrettably, maintaining the Flash client is quite a burden; it subsequently results in us having to do twice the work when updating assets or planning for the future. A prime example is the new Wired; we did actually implement this into Flash at one point, but we realized that it wasn't feasible, as we'd also have to construct the work on Nitro from the ground up - meanwhile, avoiding causing issues for users.

Starting now, we'll be blocking access to Flash for new accounts. Eventually, we'll restrict access for inactive accounts that make a return, and hopefully, before Christmas, we'll discontinue Flash entirely.

We're pretty set on this decision, but with your feedback, this could change - the one thing that makes this decision difficult is the lack of existing English Flash hotels. Habboon discontinuing its Flash client will mark a major milestone in the demise of Habbo retros running Flash.

Habboon will still be online as normal running via the Nitro/Web/HTML5 client. We're essentially just 'scaling down' the size of the hotel.

The right decision was made. The Nitro client will get double the focus and become double as good!!

I love the desktop app. Nitro lags heavily on Chrome especially on older computers.

I cannot wait to see this take its final form. As a Nitro user since its inception, I have nothing but admiration for all the work that has gone into making it what it is.

The title of this article + the first line make it sound like the hotel is closing completely, unnecessarily confusing.
