one other thing i recently realised when trying to go back and run an old browser game in 64-bit chrome is that the older shockwave stuff built in director (DCR files) was in 32-bit, and will therefore only run in 32-bit browsers. but all the other flash stuff i've seen (SWF files) still runs just fine; woohoo!
