Today Google released an update that disabled the Unity3D plugin that runs the Spirit Animals, TombQuest, and many other games on Scholastic.com. We are working to figure out a longer term solution to this issue, but in the meantime the solution below should get it running.

 

You can also simply use another browser. Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer all continue to work well with the Unity Plugin. So you can just use one of those browsers if you have it on your computer.

 

 

HOW TO GET GAMES WORKING ON THE LATEST VERSION OF CHROME

 

1. Go to the game page.


2. If you see the screen below telling you that you need to Install Unity but you have already done that, then you need to enable the plugin in Chrome. 

 

 1

 


3. Open a new tab, and copy-paste this into the address bar: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi in the Address Bar.

 

4. Under the heading "Enable NPAPI", click on Enable.

 

 2

 


5. At the bottom of the window, a message will appear telling you to Relaunch Chrome for the changes to take effect. Click on Relaunch Chrome. You can also quit and re-open chrome yourself.

 

 


6. Load up Spirit Animals again. If you see a Grey Window with a picture of a puzzle piece, right click in the window and select "Run this plug-in"

 

 4

 


7. Spirit Animals, TombQuest, and other games will then start to load up like normal.

I have a question that would probably be no:

 

Does this allow me to be able to play Spirit Animals on a Chromebook? If no, then how could I be able to play it? Is there a way?

 

Please reply.

     Thanks! Not that I really need that right now... I don't have my computer (my room got rearranged)... And my mother's computer doesn't have Unity period (no way would she let me download it, that QuickBooks thing takes up too much already, according to her). And I doubt the games can be played on a Windows Surface... (the one that has the attachable keyboard) Not that mine has Unity anyway! And it's supposed to be for school work, not games--course, I don't really have any choice BUT to use this to get on here right now. So I haven't been able to play the games for MONTHS--literally since November, maybe earlier (I don't remember). It's why I couldn't play TombQuest after I got chosen in that top 50 thing... Well, more correctly my computer failed (it wouldn't turn on). The room only got rearranged recently. But... yeah.

Forget all this stuff that I usually put here. The forums are ending so no one cares what's supposed to be here.

 

But this is what I want you all to remember: Be kind. You will have everything in life if you are kind.

It says that "We're sorry but Spirit animals cannot be played on your device's browser at this time." Firefox doesn't let me access Spirit animals and Internet explorer won't let me log in. Do I use the same procedure?
