Hey guys, I'm back with another pretty silly question/request/favor to ask.

Can someone take me through a literal step by step of how to get flash onto this beast? Like, so many details you'll want to strangle yourself with your own tongue.

It's a PowerPC so the new Flash doesn't work on it, from what I gather.
I tried to get earlier versions of Flash, but, apparently I'm doin' something wrong.

When I first bought the computer (which I named Steggy, by the way) I could run flash things just fine, then I thought I was selling it, so I reinstalled the OS disk.
Now no Flash, so my poor boyfriend can't play Pokemon Tower Defense D:
So, if anyone wants to help out that'd be lovelyy! <3

Check the Archived versions here:

Archived Flash Player versions

If I recall correctly, 10.1 will work.

So, yeah. I did that, it's a .zip file, then what do I do with it? Is it just...chill? Should it work right after I download it? Do I need to restart?


Edit: Keep in mind, I've had this computer for less than a week :c

After you download it, double click on it. It'll create a folder. In there you'll find a folder with a .dmg in it. Double click on it, it'll open a new window with something like AdobeInstaller.app in it. Double click on that and follow the instructions on screen

Just make sure you double click on the .dmg file.. the Archives include all OS versions.. which is why the things so big.
