Note: This article requires expansion and is incomplete.

This guide will show you how to curate Ambulant content using Flashpoint.

Before You Start

  • This tutorial will assume you've read the standard Curation Tutorial, which is highly recommended to go through. Consider curating a Flash game before moving on to Ambulant.

Recognizing Ambulant Content

  • Uses the file extension .smi, .smil or .grins.
  • Mentions Ambulant on the site.

Curation Steps

Set the Platform as Ambulant, the Application Path to FPSoftware\FlashpointSecurePlayer.exe , and put the ambulant prefix in the Launch Command, following the format prefix URL.

All Ambulant curations must have -extract in the Mount Parameters.

.grins files tend to encode spaces as %20. Change this in a text editor to make it display properly, then add a note.

Wrapping It Up

First, make sure that you have thoroughly tested your curation and followed the Curation Format. Scroll down in the Curate tab and click the Export button at the bottom of your curation to save it as a .7z file. After you've exported the curation, you can find it by clicking the Exported Curations button on the Curate tab (as long as you didn't choose to save it somewhere else). Once you have the file, submit it to the Flashpoint Submission System. An explanation of how the site works is available here.

After you have uploaded your curation to the website, a Curator will check it. This can take some time, so please be patient. You will be pinged in the #fpfss-notifications channel about whether or not your submission was approved, and if any changes need to be made.

Congratulations! Your submitted game/animation will appear in a future version of Flashpoint.
