I have received lot of lot of comments regarding MouseHunt Autobot 1.28 no longer work in Facebook MouseHunt app running Google Chome. Actually I’m in a tight schedule developing my own project, but I have received a lot of comments which I no longer can ignore them. So I done some homework on what actually happen.
First of all, the script is still doing great (This surprise me). The MouseHunt game doesn’t change anything that affected the script too (If you run the script through Firefox, they are running smooth). So, the only thing left is the Google Chrome itself. Yes, some how Google Chrome version 27 no longer allow user scripts to run in iframe (MouseHunt in Facebook run in iframe) by default. In order to allow user scripts to run in iframe, an additional manifest need to be included together with the userscript. I find it very troublesome to distribute the user script in two separate files, so I ignored this option.
Meanwhile, Google Chrome rapid updates and changing causes installing user scripts which are not from Chrome Web Store much harder and problematic. I need to keep on updating my blog to follow their changes which is kind of a pain to me as well.
I found a much simple solution for all those problems. Use Tampermonkey extension in Google Chome instead (very similar to Greasemonkey add-on in Firefox). The extension automatically allow user script to run in iframe which solve the problem in Google Chrome version 27. Furthermore, with this extension, user can direct install user script from userscript.org which make user’s life much more easy as well. I have written a blog post on how you can install / uninstall user script in Google Chrome through Tampermonkey Extension. Remember to uninstall the MouseHunt AutoBot in the Google Chrome Extension to prevent multiple copies of MouseHunt AutoBot running at the same time.
By the way, the link to run Mousehunt Autobot without iFrame option is broken now. The MouseHunt developer prevent anyone running the game without the iFrame in Facebook. You might want to ignore this option or just run the game in MouseHunt official website instead.
I’m glad to see that there are still so many players support my script. Thanks. Although I’m busy, keep me posted if anything happen, I will try fix them as soon as possible.
