"Install Unity Web Player" Problem

Asked by Mikiztli ML on 2016-10-31

I have been trying to run games that use the Unity Web Player plugin, but doesn't seems to work. I'm a new user of Linux (Ubuntu Studio [Xenial Xerus 16.04 LTS]).

I have already installed Pipelight with the respective console commands and I did have problems installing it the first time due to the dependencies, but I already fixed that.
I also installed Wine from the Ubuntu Software just in case.

When I want to play a game with Unity Web Player, first I enable it in the console as usual:
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable unity3d
And I activate my User-Agent Add-on for Firefox, changing it to Windows on Firefox, being exactly, with this:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; cs; rv: Gecko/2009032609 Firefox/3.0.8
However when I try to run the game with Unity Web Player,it says "Loading" but later put an image in the upper left corner that says "unity web player install now!" and the game never load.
I have already checked multiple times the Pipelight status with the command (pipelight-plugin --system-check), but it says that everything is complete and "PASSED" all the tests.

So, my question is: What am I doing wrong?

I have already fixed this problem, it was my mistake, sorry.

I totally forgot that I have to add a string with "general.platform.override" as preference and "Win32" as value, in "about:config" to pass the Unity Web Player test. When I did this, and I try to run the game, it successfully load, and finally, after 4 days working on the same "problem", I played the game.

Thanks for everyone who was thinking to help me.

Sorry for this :/.
