Unity web player game using Google Chrome will not allow input



Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the build (build/build.html) with Chrome or build the project to webplayer platform
2. Press 'Run this time' when Chrome asks permission for using Unity web player
3. Click on the game with left mouse button
4. Try to move with WASD - no movement input gets registered. Minimize-maximize Chrome. It now gets input.
5. Repeat step 2 and don't click on the game window. Game receives input.

    This issue does not reproduce with the latest Chrome version (Chrome 38 to be exact).

    btw, can I somehow mark with a "watch" flag a thread like this to get e-mail notifications when more replies are added to the thread? (like Codeplex [say at] has in discussions?)

    if it's on MacOS Chrome version only, it may be related to the same issue that also Silverlight is having. Silverlight 4 I think was working OK and getting input from Chrome on MacOS and then Silverlight 5 broke it. I don't think it was some new version of Chrome that had broken input there (say in RichTextBox), but the new version of SL. So maybe they could find those two versions and see with some debugger how they behave differently on MacOS Chrome to see if they can use that to fix the issue. Then maybe Unity team could pass on that info to Microsoft to finally fix Silverlight on MacOS Chrome (have this problem with ClipFlair Studio for a long time now [] and suggest to people to use Firefox instead on MacOS-X)

    Ok. even though this is probably a unity problem of inconsistency between platforms, I found a solution that worked for me.

    I'm using NGUI, and I had a very wild guess of unchecking clip raycasts, and that solved the problem!
    I googled and found that perhaps Panels don't get instantiated correctly on the Z axis.
    In any case, I'm curious to see if this helps others, too.

    Anyone? It's gonna be really difficult to try and roll back everything to a working version, whichever that would be.
    How come they haven't dealt with this issue?
