Dropbox new iOS problem?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Mar 28, 2012 10:14 pm

I don't know whether anyone else has encountered this problem, or if it's just me.

I have a new iPad and when I try to play Construct 2 apps via Dropbox it doesn't work! I think it is a Dropbox problem as the web page seems to show a bar at the top saying "Dropbox - Download to Dropbox app?" with the index.html code below. It just seems to show the code and not play it.

How can I solve this?

Sorry, I don't know where to post this and if this is a change to Dropbox, it might be a big potential danger for Construct 2 development!

Also, (can't see how to edit posts) there is a Download link,mwhich seems to try to load it but I does not load correctly. If that helps.

What are you exactly trying to do? I just uploaded a sample game to my Dropbox, then opened the public link in Safari on my iPad2 (iOS 5.1), and it worked just fine. (Well, it loaded, that is.)

@DalekAddison, are you sure it works on a desktop browser? Did you check?

@Mivo Just trying to play a Web App.

@Ashley I checked it on my Desktop via Dropbox public link and it works fine there. Other Dropbox apps seems to work fine, i.e. the Deadspace one from the My Creations list.

It just seems to be a problem loading anything from MY Dropbox. I think i'll try logging out of the app and see if that helps.

Well, that didn't work. But I have found the problem!

I was using the Dropbox app to copy the public link (via a control at the top). I don't know whether for some reason this generated a different link because when I emailed myself the link for the Index.HTML from my Computer it worked fine! The Dropbox app must generate a different type of URL, one that opens up a sort of download option instead of actually using it. BUt now the problem is resolved as long as email the link to myself!

Not the most practical way but i'm glad it's fixed now!

Could anyone else try copying the link for their app via the Dropbox app and see if that changes theirs too?
