Simple iframe for Unity Webplayer (with instructions and download)

I made an easy way to embed Unity games into websites. Download link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/85819592/Unity/SimpleFullFillTemplate.zip
(Extract the WebPlayerTemplates folder into your project's assets folder and select the template at Edit->Project Settings->Player)

To use it with iframe, put this into your html / php's <body>:

<iframe height="95%" src="your_webplayer_url/webplayer.html" width="100%" ></iframe>

Also works with any CMS. In some situation, you should modify the height to a fixed value in your webplayer html and in the iframe too. If you want to get rid of the default iframe border, use this attribute: frameBorder="0"

The following example is sized to 700px high. The reason is just because it is embedded at an other site where this size was set.

Racing game? It'll be done!

I started a racing game back then, but I didn't make any progress in the last months. It doesn't mean, I forgot about it or I gave it up! I was working on that Flappy Bird clone. Also I had problems with the car physics.

Good news, I found a pretty good way to make the cars work with the wheel collider component of Unity. It will be a little bit arcade style, but also it'll be fun. And it will be pretty stable at high speeds too. Nothing to worry about!

...and a newer one.

Also I'll make the tracks low poly, but detailed. It'll work on PC and Android too. What I learnt from my Flappy Bird project is handling MySQL databases through Unity. I think it'll be a useful thing for online lap time comparison.

My first game!

Do you know Flappy Bird? Maybe you are one of the unlucky persons who knows that game. And guess what? I made a Flappy Bird clone. There are hundreds of them! And I made one too. The main character is an F1 driver who jumps out from his smoking car. Probably you know who I am talking about. That photo of him was a great target of Photoshoppers. And a good target of me to create a game of it.

It's not 100% finished, I need to fix some things, but it's working. Final version is coming soon! You can play it here: https://apps.facebook.com/flappymax/
