I've recently tried to reuse Tridef after a while and updating ... everything on my computer. Windows 10 v1903 + new CPU (requiring an activation, which no longer works since Tridef's DRM site is down)
I finally managed to get a working Tridef Ignition by using replacement executables thanks to asprind's post on this page: viewtopic.php?p=164910#p164910

I've now got an issue with games from my steam library.
As soon as steam loads (under tridef) a broken webpage "error/" is opened every couple of seconds in my web browser.
The game appears to launch normally, but I don't want to try and play for any significant amount of time since I do not want to turn my computer into a RAM overload time-bomb in the form of my web browser trying to open thousands and thousands of tabs. And then the chore of closing these tabs manually afterwards (I keep my tabs between sessions).

Once I close the game, the behaviour continues as long as steam is still running in the background (under Tridef).
It looks like it only happens on Steam games. (I tried only one non-steam game for about a minute and this behaviour does not happen)

I believe it's tied to Steam's recent client redesign, but I'm not sure, the last time I tried to play a steam game using Tridef was months ago.
Has anyone had this issue ?
Has anyone managed to solve it ?

Just tried to play a Steam game in 3D and got the same web error messages. Also, I'm noticing that though it starts the game in 3D, I can't change any settings like switching to powered 3D , increasing scene depth or anything.
Just noticed as well that the old "exception" error message no longer pops up, just the stupid web browser message. Not sure about this one.

It looks like for some people this bug vanished when Steam is updated, or when people switch to the beta client of steam.
Unfortunately I still had the error messages issue, but
I FOUND A FIX !

Thanks to Steam user Capn J https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/ ... 089184390/

SOLUTION : prevent Steam from opening the browser by adding the -no-browser command argument to your Tridef game properties.
You'll need to do this for each game when using tridef, but it's better than nothing.

Example :
In your Tridef main window, right click on your steam game -> properties
Add the -no-browser argument to the command line. It should look like this
Code:
-no-browser steam://rungameid/######
