Shell Shockers FAQ

System requirements

We're still in the process of working this out, but here's a rough idea:


Lag! What should I do?

If your shots are getting off really late, or you're bouncing around all over the place, here are a few things you can try:

Generally speaking, we like to see a ping of 100ms or less. You can see your ping in the upper-left corner of the game window as you play. You can get away with higher pings if they're consistent, but they rarely are!


My frame rate is low. Now what?

(Frame rate is indicated by the FPS readout in the upper-left corner of the game window. 60 is best!)

There are also all kinds of crazy settings available (too many to cover here) in Chrome by entering chrome://flags in the address bar, or about:config if you're using Firefox. Be careful, though; fiddling with these could cause problems and may even cause your computer to lock up!


How do I enable WebGL?

That depends on your browser! Shell Shockers requires WebGL, so if you can play the game already, it's enabled, and you don't have to worry about this! Otherwise, follow the directions for your browser below. If your browser version is older than the one listed, download the latest! You'll thank me later.

Chrome 49

Step 1 - Enable hardware acceleration Step 2 - Enable WebGL

Firefox 54

Changes take effect immediately.

Safari 10.1

Internet Explorer 11 / Edge 14

Should be enabled by default. If not, you probably need to update your graphics driver!


WebSockets? Say What?

WebSockets allow for efficient communication that is vital for games of this type. Here's a list of browsers that support it. If yours isn't on the list, or is older than the version shown, you should download a new one!
