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

Before You Start

  • This tutorial will assume you've read the standard Curation Tutorial, which is highly recommended to go through.

Recognizing SVG Viewer Content

SVG powered info
  • SVG file doesn't open in modern browser and editors or it's incorrectly displayed.
  • Uses type image/svg-xml and embed, which doesn't work in modern browser
  • It says that it requires SVG Viewer for installation.
  • File usually end with .svgz.

Notes About SVG Viewer

  • .svg / .svgz files should be in HTML embed. Example:
<embed name="SVGEmbed" src="" height="320" width="240">
  • The application path should always be set to FPSoftware\startSVGViewer.bat, not FPSoftware\startNetscape.bat, due to the way the plugin works inside Netscape.

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.
