|0000040||Core Inform||Releasing, bibliographic data, cBlorb||public||2010-06-15 21:25||2010-07-02 01:56|
|Platform||x86||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.6|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6E72|
|Summary||0000040: Parchment play-in-browser page hangs in Chrome browser|
|Description||The play-in-browser page produced with the 'Release along with an interpreter' option works as expected in Safari (4.0.5) and Mac Firefox (3.5.9), but hangs in the most recent version of Mac Chrome (5.0.375.70) on the 'Please wait while Parchment loads/Retrieving story file...' message.|
This seems to have something to do with the version of Parchment bundled with Inform, as the individual .z5 and .zblorb files produced by Inform *will* run as expected in Mac Chrome, when run through the version of Parchment running off of googlecode:
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"Parchment test" by Joshua Lawrence Release along with an interpreter. Parchment Test is a room.
|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|

Hm, odd. It only appears to be an issue when opening play.html in Chrome locally from your hard drive (the same way I opened it in Firefox and Safari, which worked). If the play-in-browser release is uploaded to a site, and accessed online by Mac Chrome, it works as expected:
So may not be an Inform issue at all, but a Chrome quirk with running local files? Interested to see if other people see this.
|I'll look into fixing this soon. Local XHR has had some issues before.|
|Thanks, Dannii. More confirmation: tested in Windows XP, and saw same behavior when loading play.html from a local drive: worked in Firefox and IE, but hung on 'Retrieving story file' in Chrome.|
It would be helpful if you could run a quick test for me, in as many platforms as you can.
Please download http://github.com/curiousdannii/parchment/zipball/master [^]
and run tests/download_to_array.html locally.
Seems Chrome have some ridiculous security policy!
I think I can fix this, but it will take some work.
|I believe I have fixed this. Can you test with the new Parchment.zip. You'll need to extract that into your templates folder, though I'm not sure exactly where that is, and then you'll have to release and rebuild the website again.|
Aha, I suspected it was Chrome being a jerk.
Local play.html works now in Chrome in Win XP and OS X! I can test in Vista tonight, I expect it will work there as well.
|OK, loading play.html locally now works as expected in Chrome in Vista as well.|
