Loading Unity screens
When Unity 3D Web Player works in Pipelight you should start here at the Outpost
Pipelight requires a few trial-n-error steps to ensure Unity Web Player installs properly. I tried to put all the steps in order, but you don't necessarily have to install it in this exact order.
Once Unity runs, Dead Frontier ran perfectly on my GeForce 550 Ti.
Loading times were quick, frame rates were perfect.
Don't forget, there is no fast travel back to the Outpost, but if you explore far away from it and log off, the game remembers where you were at next time you log in.
