    They use Google Native Client. So, it should be playable with Chrome@Linux (not tested yet). Direct link.

    Spoiler: Just like Mini Ninjas, they're not playable Linux

      Right it doesn't work. Square Enix uses BrowserDetect.OS JavaScript function and Chrome User Agent Switcher is useless. Can anyone change Linux->Windows in Chrome http://www.quirksmode.org/js/detect.html ?

        Shure? I just booted Windows to test it and it needs a Plugin, I uploaded it here. I didn't test it in wine, I just hope for a native linux version of that plugin. It is also interesting to look into the Javascript files when playing like this one which indicates that java is used in some way.

          I haven't figured out how. Firefox has general.platform.override in about:config but I've found nothing similar for chrome.

            It can use either Square's proprietary plugin OR native client. You can set which one it does by default in your options if you register, although I believe if you use chrome it will default to native client.

            Edit: Whoops, just noticed I double posted
            My bad

              I'm triple posting at this point, but, hey, there's no edit

              In any case, I finally managed to bypass their platform check, and I honestly expected there'd be some terrible issues. Ya know, crashing, graphics going all wonky, controls not working, something.

              Imagine my surprise when everything works absolutely flawlessly. No issues at all, graphics are crisp, FPS is steady. Sigh, looks like they just don't like Linux users.

                Could you share the solution?

                  Well, basically, you need to find

                  chrome://view-http-cache/http://cdn3.beta.coreonline.com/coreonline/web/rev/2805/web/js/aaa.game.js

                  that file in your cache(~/.cache/google-chrome). It should start with
                  Code:
                  var isRunning = false;
                  Find the line that says
                  Code:
                  if (BrowserDetect.OS == "Linux") {
                  (should be line 751) and replace the "Linux" with "Lcnux" (or anything as long as it's 5 letters).
