I'm not a big fan of downloading something that converts my SWFs to an EXE and distributing them. Call me old fashioned ;-)

I tried 7zip on the highest setting compression and it came out to the same filesize.

I certainly didn't ignore your post, I simply didn't think it would be a problem for the majority. Thanks for linking that SWF2EXE though, people can do it themselves if playing SWF's is an issue.

Please consider contacting the 'Blue Maxima Flashpoint' Flash Preservation Project here:
https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/

Consider providing an open/permissive license for them to preserve and archive your flash games for posterity <3
Doing so will also reach a much wider audience than itch.io!

They have a Discord server linked on that page that you can join.  Tell them you're a game dev interested in contributing your games and they will help with the rest.  ;)

I fully admit my own ignorance of this project prior to someone PMing me about it on my Discord server.  It is absolutely wonderful that a 'sandboxed' archive of flash games/demos and gaming history can be preserved for posterity.  ^_^

The way they preserve games runs them in a contained sandbox and mitigates issues with system-based Flash installs or any Flash malware.
