Hey there. No news for quite a while, huh?

So basically, i'm recieving quite a number of disappointment over old, hidden, but once active flash files on newgrounds that were taken down by one reason or another & requests to restore them. So I've decided to make you one interesting tool. Introducing NewGrounds Unlocked. Get excited.


What the fuck is this for?

This tool allows you to get your flash files from the past and present, so fear not if your flash file is currently down or just freshly submitted, you can still get it.

Cool, can i try it?
Sure, I've launched the "public alpha". You can test it here.

Can i restore my 2009 flash?
You can try, i've also not forgotten about timestamps, so you can choose the date and try to find your flash movie or game.

How to crank it?
Pop your newgrounds submission url like this http://ngu.locklegion.rocks/unlock/your_ng_url/ and observe the result
Paste your newgrounds/armor games link in the url field and press "Get"/Enter

Public Alpha:
Code:
[1.0.0]
Initial release

[1.0.1]
Added /lookup/ route so you can see all the historical records for the url

[1.0.2-1.0.5]
Various fixes
A new shiny frontend with great mobile support and ajax

[1.0.6]
NGU now works with new movies too, still doesn't work with <2006 :(

[1.1.0]
Added armor games support
Internal optimizations

Due to the (rapid) expansions of the supported service providers i've decided to make a poll on a tool's name change, please vote, will analyze your feedback.

well, basically you grab a flash url and as a result get a download link*

*unintended sideeffect - it works for both old and new flashes

Sweeeet, thanks RSS. I got my first LL flash back.
I first tried just entering the ID from the newgrounds URL, but learned you gotta put the whole thing in there after the slash (I even included the https://).

It's being a bit funny on Android Screenshot_20171128-214635.png maybe that's just the lack of a frontend

Nice! looks really smooth. One suggestions though: you should change the logo to the key of glorton slowly moving toward a lock. You know, comedic value and all that.
