flash and windows 10 it wont work with the latest october update.
currently only windows 10 affected !!

see:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/update-for-the-removal-of-adobe-flash-player-october-27-2020-931521b9-075a-ce54-b9af-ff3d5da047d5

we work on a solution, you can still play ports of call, but there will be a flash symbol displayed.
For the harbour animations the swf files can be deleted and a replacement picture will be displayed.

We work to replace all flash by a video file , as flash is only used to replace video sequences - it should not affect the gameplay
---
hope to have a solution within the next weeks on this ..
