Also, would they be accepted under the windows category or would a flash category be created?

You can TAS Flash 9 games in libTAS through gnash-sdl. Instruction linked at the top of this post. You can also run standalone Adobe FlashPlayer in libTAS, but its support is incomplete. There's also work on supporting Ruffle. If you're crazy, you can also run Adobe FlashPlayer inside PCem inside libTAS (inside Linux or WSL). Setup is described in Post #471467 onward. We already have submission support for Flash inside libTAS, but nobody made an optimized movie (that would also sync for judges and publishers) of it yet.
Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting. If TASing is meta-play, TASVideos Movie Rules are meta-meta-play!
