2.6 Web Player Community Preview

September 30, 2009 in Technology

Here we are again, putting the final touches on the latest and greatest release of Unity — version 2.6. The team is already amazed at how many new games are being made today! They’re being rolled out so quickly that we can’t always keep up. So to help us make sure that everything in the 2.6 release is going to be 100% silky smooth compatible with all the published webplayer games out there, we’d like to ask the Unity community for some help once again.

If you want to help make Unity 2.6.0 a flawless release, there are two simple things you can do.

1) Auto-update to the 2.6 webplayer plugin by visiting this Auto-Update test page.
2) Go play as many webplayers as possible.  Try out lots of players old and new!

If you have any problems at all during the auto-update process or running a webplayer, we want to know about it immediately. Please post about it in a reply to this thread on the Unity forums. Include the URL of the problematic webplayer, and the OS, browser, and graphics card you’re using. We really want to fix everything so if you run into problems, don’t forget to post! And thanks!

    Sorry for the spam, but it crashed again when I closed the restored tab.

    Once firefox restarted all my tabs came back, but while that (autoupdate) tab is in the background it maxes out my CPU. Strangely, while in the foreground it stays low.

    That autoupdate page seemed to work ok, accepted the UAC prompt (Windows 7 RTM x86), chugged a bit, and a about 10 seconds later Firefox crashed, with the Windows error reporting stuff instead of Breakpad.

    I have a crash dump if you want it.

    Question

    Is it possible in the future (maybe with Unity 3D 3.0?)
    To make 3D web pages without Unity Webplayer?. How? maybe with WebGL ;-)

    That the best thing you can do. 3D web pages without a plug-in.

    Then if you were the best ;-)

    Calvin:
    Not yet, no – the same workaround from http://blogs.unity3d.com/2009/08/25/snow-leopards-64-bit-safari-and-unity/ still applies.

    Matheus, Gabriel:
    Its not on our public roadmap, but you guys should really check out http://feedback.unity3d.com

    congratulations!!! unity’s biggest problem about flickering object on surfaces close to each other is solved now!!! it’s very important in compositing objects from smaller parts. thank you aras about rewriting the fixed function pipeline.
    torque3D is comming but you guys are faster and you should go faster now
