I suspect that I should be on a git branch or a git tag to run the three.js examples successfully.
None of the car example are working for me.
In chrome you'll probably need the --allow-file-access-from-files flag to run those demos.
In Windows you can right click your desktop icon. Select properties. Then add it at the end of the target field. In Mac OS X you can run the application from the terminal.
/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --allow-file-access-from-files --enable-webgl --ignore-gpu-blacklist %U
On Ubuntu you can right click your desktop icon. Select properties. Then add it at the end of the command field. Or you can just do the terminal thing.
Still not working.
Hm, not sure. I have the latest version of the source running on Mac OS X Chrome 13.0.782.220. I started chrome from the terminal using the command above. These files worked for me.
Do other WebGL related demos work?
Something like webgl_collisions_mesh.html should work without any flags.
It seems some of the "webgl_xxx" demos also cannot work on my machine, win7 with chrome browser.
Follow examples can work with the flag "--allow-file-access-from-files", :)
Many demos need this flag to run. But the following example still cannot run, :(
I use the online url "http://mrdoob.github.com/three.js/examples/webgl_panorama_equirectangular.html" and still cannot run. It is a black screen.
@akatebi: So this one doesn't work? http://mrdoob.github.com/three.js/examples/webgl_materials_cars.html
What graphics card do you have? And, considering you're on Ubuntu, which driver are you using?
@gengshenghong: What graphics card do you have?
Well, this is more a browser issue rather than three.js then... if the online examples work but they do not locally, then it's definitely a browser issue or a missing flag.
Make sure you're always using the chrome you launched with the flag though. It may be that you're closing the browser and then clicking on an example that launches Chrome but without the flag.
This is part of my graphics information, I think it is not the flag issue for me since all other examples can work well both with online or local URLs. But the "webgl_panorama_equirectangular.html" will display a black screen with online and local url. Is there any special requirement for this demo?

It uses a 5000x2500 image. Maybe your gfx card can't handle this?
