Have you ever wanted to take a flash game you really like and save it on to your computer?
Step 1: The Source
We all know that there are many different websites you can go on to play flash games. Only some of these websites are still ran "old style" as in, the flash game is hosted directly in the cache of the website. Newer games have the game communicate with another server to where actually get the game files from. Newer websites (like www.kongregate.com) have the game embedded deep in the site with new scripts and commands for achievements. These newer games and/or websites will halt you from downloading the .swf file you need to play the flash game from your own computer.
Step 2: The Extractor
Suprisingly, extracting the game you want takes no extra programs, just one website. This website is www.file2hd.com. This website allows you to download any file in the cache (storage) of the website to your harddrive.
Step 3: Getting the Game
Copy and paste the link of the page where you can play the flash game to the bar on www.file2hd.com. Check the Objects box as flash content is refered to as objects and this will make the website only search for flash content.
Right-Click and Save as on the file you want.
On some sites (like www.addictinggames.com) the .swf has a file name of numbers (i.e. 6421.swf).
When saving your game, feel free to rename it to the proper name of the game.
Step 4: Playing the Game from Your Computer
Right-click on your newly downloaded game and click Open with..
Choose your favorite browser and check the box entitled :
Always use the selected program to open this kind of file
You can copy these .swfs to any sort of digital memory device (flash/thumb drive, external harddrive,cds,dvds) and take the games with you to other locations.

Ignore all the 'DOWNLOAD' buttons if there are some. Those are just adverts trying to give you viruses.
If you look through the files, you should find one ending with the name of the game. Right click that one and click 'Save link as'.
Lastly, pick somewhere to save the .swf file.
Understand now? If not, I give up.
