    • Help! How do I make these Video Card Driver/WebGL errors stop?

      Crimson: Steam Pirates for Google Chrome requires WebGL to deliver hardware-accelerated 3D graphics.  If you cannot run WebGL, you will see an error message instead of launching Crimson: Steam Pirates. If you want to see if you support webGL before downloading, try this link: http://get.webgl.org/

      Chrome video card driver support can be found here: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1220892 

      To see if your video card is compatible, enter about:gpu into the address bar of your Chrome browser.  Crimson: Steam Pirates Requires that WebGL is enabled.  Error messages are featured below. 

      Graphics Feature Status

      • Canvas: Hardware accelerated
      • HTML Rendering: Hardware accelerated
      • 3D CSS: Hardware accelerated
      • WebGL: Unavailable. Hardware acceleration unavailable.
      • WebGL multisampling: Hardware accelerated

      To workaround this issue, you'll need to update your graphics driver. Older drivers are unsupported by Chrome. 

      If you cannot update your graphics driver, you can try disabling the webGL blacklist. This has worked for some older hardware, but is not a guaranteed fix. Your mileage may vary. 

      Create a link to Chrome, or directly to Crimson (select new tab. Click on apps on the bottom bar. 

      Right click on the Crimson icon and select Create Shortcut). 

      Right click on that link and select properties. 

      In the "Shortcut" tab, you should see a Target: text box. 

      You'll see a file path ending with \chrome.exe. Put --ignore-webgl-blacklist at the end. So it looks like chrome.exe --ignore-webgl-blacklist.

    • Help! I can't install Chrome Apps. What gives?

      After I click "Add To Chrome" from the Crimson Web Store, it says installing, then goes back to "Add To Chrome". We have seen this occur when using a beta version of Chrome. Try installing the latest non-beta release of Chrome. Below is a link to the Google Help forum on this issue:

    • When I signed in with Facebook for the first time, a large number of games appeared in my stats section. I think it’s broken. What’s going on?

      The first time you sign into Facebook the game associates your profile with all the previous uploaded games you’ve completed. This is normal. Don’t freak out.
