What is a Flash Player and why do I need it?

The Flash Player is an add-on program (plug-in) used in order to run cross-platform content such as graphics, computer animations and games on different browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer) or operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, Linux, MacOS). The Flash Player creates an interface between the Flash program and the computer system being used and ensures that a program is capable of running on all systems with the Flash Player.

The latest version of the Flash Player can be downloaded and installed for free from the producer, Adobe.


Please follow the Adobe installation instructions specific to your system.

After successfully installing the Flash Player, you can view web content which uses the Flash Player in your Internet browser.

Download the Flash Player and you’re all set: Your Internet browser is now ready for Dark Orbit!

Set up the Flash Player for optimum performance
So that Dark Orbit can run as smoothly as possible, please configure your flash player. To do this log into the game and open the Space Map. Make sure that you are in a Demilitarized zone.

Right click on the Space Map, in the Drop Down menu please click Settings.

The symbol which the setup assistant opens at the start can vary for each player, so please click on the first symbol on the bottom with the left mouse button.
Please make sure the box “Activate hardware acceleration” has been checked.
Hardware acceleration allows the Flash Player to work directly with your graphics card so that images and movements will be shown more quickly and smoothly.

Afterwards select the symbol with the “Folder”.

This is where you set up the “local memory” which can be used by the Flash application on your computer.

Drag the controller button on the regulator bar to unlimited. This ensures that all the necessary information for [game name] can be saved quickly onto your computer. If your memory is set too low, there is a risk that the data transfer rate may be slowed down.

The other settings do not apply to the game since they pertain to options for cameras and microphones which are not used in Dark Orbit.

Now confirm by clicking on “Close” and the settings will be saved on your computer.

From time to time you should check to see if these options are still set correctly.

Delete the Flash Player’s saved data

Flash Player doesn’t only save data in your browser’s cache but it also saves some information on your hard drive. You should also delete this information on a regular basis to ensure that you are always using the latest version of Dark Orbit.

Dual core and quad core CPUs

Although the Flash Player usually runs on computers with dual core and quad core CPUs, it only ever uses one CPU core.

For this reason, it doesn’t really matter how many CPU cores the computer using the Flash Player has. And since it only runs on one core, only the performance of one core is available. The core is also used by other programs and the operating system in addition to the Flash Player. For this reason, the performance of the computer can easily be overestimated.

Adobe recommends using at least a Pentium 4 with 2.33 GHz for a resolution of 852x420.

Optimize Dark Orbit settings

Please try to use the following options on the Space Map. Click the Settings menu on the top right, and then use the following:



Please note these are the optimal settings for the Galaxy Gates, When in the Normal Maps please switch back on:

Show Player Names
Show Company Icon
Show Chat (should you wish it)
