Game isn't working on browser

Postby Skyline on Thu Jun 22, 2017 12:50 pm

Hello, first of all i know that there is at least 3 posts like mine, but i want an issue for that...


I cant play the game on web, i tested it on 3 different pc, on 3 different connections and with 3 different browsers (chrome, firefox and ie) so i dont really know what to do now...
The error is that i need to download and update unity player, without success
(I updated unity as asked but nothing new and i tryed 32 and 64 bits install but still nothing new...
I would like to thanks any of the persons that would answer me and make this post useless ^^
By the way, if any developper goes trough there, i would like to support the game by translating him into french language :)
(Yes im french, excuse my awkward english)

I'm afraid the web version is pretty-much discontinued support wise. Most browsers have moved on from allowing the Unity web player to work seamlessly (there are thing you can do to get it working, but they're a hassle and they're prone to stop working whenever a new update comes out) and we're not going to be porting the game to the newer versions of Unity that have WebGL output.

My own webplayer has stopped working since the end of last month when I tested a new upload... :( If anyone has tricks to make it work again, I'm all ears.

Do flash player need to be up to date?
I'm thinking about sending a request to unity staff but i dont think they care about just one page on the web isn't working...

The only thing available now is just wait?

The webplayer is no longer supported by Unity due to changes to the major browsers dropping NPAPI support that the webplayer plugin requires. This isn't really something Unity (or us) can fix - https://blogs.unity3d.com/2015/10/08/un ... er-roadmap

The solution - if you really have to play on the web - is to use a browser that still allows the plugin to run, we've left the page up because a few people do still choose to do that.

The better solution is simply to play the game through the original channel you bought it from: You can only play on the web if you already have a DD.net account, which you can only get by owning the game from somewhere else. The best idea is just to play the game via Steam, GoG, Humble, iOS or Android and say goodbye to the web build - you can still access your saved Kingdom with your DD.net login. If you bought the game direct from us, you should be able to claim a Steam Key, so there's really nothing forcing the web version :)

Hope that helps, sorry for the bad news.

thanks for the informations, but i bought the game with the humble bundle, and i can play it on tablet and smartphone, but i cant have a steam key, so i cant play this game on my computer... wich is pretty embarassing ><

Is there a way to have a key to activate the game on my steam account or only available on smartphone?

Yes, there's a way to get a key for Steam: Buy it on Steam :) It's 50% off now during the sale too.

You bought the Android version of the game that took us nearly 2 years to port. Just because the gameplay is exactly the same doesn't mean you bought a different version at bargain bundle prices.

I always wondered, is it you who set the amount of the discount for such sales? Could you not give any discount at all during summer sale?
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Download over at ddmod.weebly.com.

I'm not sure how much I can talk about the sale process on Steam, but yes, we do have final say over discount amounts.

Are you saying the game isn't currently discounted somewhere?

The browser version seems to work in older firefox versions. There is a version of firefox 52 called "ESR" which is still supported in which the unity webplayer still works, don't know if it is secure to use that one, though. There is also a portable version of that if you don't want to mess with your up to date firefox install.
