bad surprise this morning, pico-8 html exports have no sound in chrome.

I guess my chrome browser got an update (Version 66.0.3359.139), and now you have to actively click on an element to get sound? the problem with pico-8 is that somehow when sound output is "denied" at boot it doesn't come back.

it's ok on the bbs since you have to click on a play button. the fix on itch.io is to uncheck the "Automatically start on page load" box to get a play button. didn't find that option on gamejolt and I don't know about newgrounds and others.

In any case that's a trend that's here to stay, I've heard about that on macos/ios a while ago and I guess it will eventually happen on all browsers.

so pico-8 exports should get the play button too? or make it so the sound eventually comes back when authorised?

I think it'll have to start recognizing whether or not it's the element with focus.

It's already a problem that it keeps on taking keyboard events even when it isn't. If I run an app in browser and then start typing up a response to the post it's in, my keystrokes do things in the app. They shouldn't.

I updated my html template in compliance with the new autoplay policy changes in chrome 66
(a play button appears when autoplay is denied)
