    Like the subject line says.
    "DON'T OPEN LOADER.SWF IN YOUR WEB BROWSER"

    If you're using a web browser, then use the Flash Player projector instead.

    Why? There was an emergency Flash patch, which is supposed to reduce identity theft. Unfortunately if seems that it 'broke' the ability of web browsers to open the SWF file in Superdeepthroat.
    Please note that I am NOT an expert on SDT; Stuntcock is our resident guru.

    That's exactly what happened to me! Definitely don't open the game in your web browser!

    Ah, I had a feeling there was something amiss when SDT wouldn't load hairs after the most recent Flash update. Though I admit that with the sticky and capital letters, I was worried that something more serious had happened. (Turns out it's just because a lot of folks kept making topics about the same issue.)

    Happened to me too....

    Been trying to get it to work on the "macromedia flash" thing, but all I get is a black screen... Maybe I'm doing something wrong, not an expert with this stuff.

    How do we open it if we can't open it in our web browser?

    You serious? It says right in the OP what you should use instead, with a link and everything.

    Common SDT & Loader questions answered
    see 'How do I open the game or flash .swf files (specifically loader.swf or superdeepthroat.swf) on my computer?'

    THANK YOU!
    I've been tossing (heh) and turning around for the last few days, thinking it was a Windows update that broke SWF file interactivity with web browsers. I've been creating generic Windows 7 VMs with both IE8 and 11 to determine what combination would work, as I'm now on Windows 10.

    oh my gosh, this is a life saver. I'm running it on a Mac and SWF Player refused to load any SDT Mods, so I lost a lot of interest in it, up until I decided to come back to the forums for help.

    Thank you so much! :D
