the browser game "The Lost Titans" requires a browser plugin called "Triangle Player", which was not yet available via Pipelight. I have just added the missing plugin for testing purposes, so it will be part of the next Pipelight release. Could you tell me which distribution you're using? For some of them we also offer daily builds, which can be used to test a bit sooner.

See here for the changes:

When you have installed a new version of Pipelight all you have to do is to run:

sudo pipelight-plugin --unlock triangleplayer
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable triangleplayer

and the plugin will be installed automatically when you restart the browser the next time.

Nevertheless there is still one big problem I noticed: The plugin seems to contain a critical bug (*), which makes it crash in 50% of all attempts. When it doesn't crash everything seems to work as expected, and I was also able to play the game a bit without any problems. I'll check if there is a support page for this plugin, and if yes try to report this bug there - it could also cause crashes and other problems on Windows.


(*) The plugin doesn't behave according to the NPAPI standard, and doesn't create all objects via NPN_CreateObject. This triggers an internal assertion in Pipelight. The relevant lines in the debug output are:

--- snip ---
[PIPELIGHT:LIN:triangleplayer] nppfunctions.c:834:NPP_GetValue(): ( instance=0x7f151e4001a0, variable=15, value=0x7fff374a0e58 )

[PIPELIGHT:WIN:triangleplayer] ../common/common.c:806:handleManager_ptrToId(): cannot create remote object of type 0.

The distribution is Pinguy 14.04 mini.
Is there a daily-build ppa?

As this distro is basically the same as Ubuntu you can just use:

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/daily

Afterwards make sure to run:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

And it should fetch a new version of Pipelight.

By the way: We already reported this issue to the plugin developers, so
hopefully they'll be able to fix these remaining problems - they sounded
like they want to get this fixed as soon as possible ;-)
