Dude, just create a folder and name it Public.... it's that simple. Dropbox will automatically set it as your "public" folder.

@Sargas

This works for you on a free dropbox account? Doesn't work for me.

@Rayek

Well, to hell with dropbox. I just tried altervista, and it's great.

Exported a project, zipped up my folder, uploaded it (it auto-extracts zips), and brought up my game. Works perfect.

You get 1gb of space, and traffic caps at 15gbs per month. I don't think I'll be coming near either of those limits.

Color me happy. :)

google drive works again! there's just a million (okay, like one extra than before) steps now..

their explanation kinda confused me at first. but you just make it public, then copy all that gobbledygook out of the url they give you, then put it after googledrive.com/host/[gobbledygook]

@spacedoubt

Thanks for the link, I'll keep it in mind for a backup. Right now I'm just psyched at how good altervista is working. Plus, since it's not a hack like w/ Gdrive or dropbox, I don't have to worry about it breaking.

@herrislow

Will definitely deploy to kongregate when I have a finished game.

Itch.io will allow you to set it as private so that you can test it first.

@TiAm @volkiller730 My bad then. I've had dropbox for several years now. Quite a shame they took that out of the free version,
