Fellow Unity Devs, and those in similar situations, the latest chrome update disables NPAPI plugins by default making Unity Web Players not show up. I’m sure most of you already know this and know how to fix it, but some of you may not notice until you start deploying over the weekend. So if you use chrome and want to be able to Play/Rate Unity Webplayer games you’ll have to turn NPAPI support back on.

You can enable them by navigating to chrome://flags/ and enabling NPAPI (Ctrl-F and search for NPAPI) 

This setting is set to disabled by default in the latest update as google is phasing out the dated API in favor of newer methods (HTML5 and their native client stuff among others).

If you don’t want to be bothered by it I suggest trying out Unity’s WebGL build that’s currently in beta.

Good luck all!

    But… but… WebGL is ugly! At least it is for now… we can only hope for improvement.
