401 Authentication error when loading texture atlas png


Recommended Posts

Hi, seems after the latest Chrome update, images are failing to load due to an Authorization error.




Anyone know how I can get around this? Loading an image directly works, but then how to add that information, along with the atlas into pixi?

the site is password protected not the images. After supplying the correct username and password the site loads.


Using pixi AssetLoader and adding a .json atlas file to it, once pixi starts trying to load the png defined in that .json, I get the 401 Authentication error.

So far this has only happened in Chrome and IE.


Firefox and Safair work.

Ok i think I have a solution to the problem. 


You need to set game.load.crossOrigin = 'use-credentials'


You also need to edit the xhrLoad method within loader.js and add the line this._xhr.withCredentials = true;


This will ensure that the request headers are updated with the correct authentication.
