    Thank you BB for putting the new client on the test server

    The new client has to be launched by pressing the 'play now' button in the browser; there is no option to play in browser on the test server any more. This is fine on the test server, but an all-or-nothing approach on live servers will be sure to cause problems for some players.

    Will there be a period of having two 'play' buttons on live servers - one for the client and one for browser play?

    Download the client, install it, then launch the game from the play button. You may have to acknowledge some security warnings on the test client, and it only works on the test server at the moment.

    The test server forum is best for support on it at the moment.

    So far there only seems to be a downloadable .exe client version…
    What about unix derivatives?

    Also, since I'm not planning on updating my browser:
    will the regular flash version work (the current /play URL), or will the Ubisoft client be required and in case of any problems with it,
    people for whom the Ubisoft client will not work (but will have a browser supporting Flash) won't be able to play during the transition stage ’or worse’?
    In the FAQ it's only stated that it MIGHT be possible, to play on a browser with Flash during the transition period, but that's not reassuring at all.

    Also from the FAQ:
    ’Is it going to be possible to play TSO Unity version on Linux/Mac/Chromebook/Mobile Devices?
    On Linux, you may have to install a browser plugin for the Unity Player.’

    There doesn't seem to be any such Unity Player. Internet only returns results about running windows plugin version on linux using Pipelight,
    but Pipelight itself is not supported anymore and dead…
    I hope for a more detailed Settlers->Unity FAQ to be published later on, but thought to better ask this soon, because at this moment this doesn't look good.
