Well,

I didn't know If I should post this at Bugs section or at "How do I", but let me explain the situation, and you tell me if it is the right place or not.

My game (for 4th bday competition) works fine at my Dropbox. I've uploaded the same files to a Dreamhost account, but it doens't load sound fx, and when the game changes to certain layout it comes to a black screen.

What could be wrong?jailson2011-10-23 15:35:57

this is where it is hosted and is not working 100%:

http://games.apimenti.com/projects/spacebar/

same files are at my public dropbox and works properly:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10935623/SpaceBar/game.html

If you want I can export the c2runtime.js not minified to help you debugging it. Is it necessary?jailson2011-10-23 18:05:40

For audio I think it might be a bug fixed in the next build - audio files don't work on case sensitive servers.

If you press Ctrl+Shift+J though you'll see this error:

[quote]Application Cache Error event: Invalid manifest mime type (text/plain) http://games.apimenti.com/projects/spacebar/offline.appcache[/quote]

You need to contact your host and get them to make sure the .appcache file is sent with the text/cache-manifest MIME type otherwise the caching will be broken.

the answer of the Dreamhost Support:

"Have you tried adding the following to an .htaccess file in your web
directory:

AddType text/cache-manifest appcache manifest

Also this article might be worth reviewing:

http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/appcache/beginner/"



I created a .htaccess file with following content:

AddType text/cache-manifest appcache manifest

But the error persists. Is should be it?

I'm not sure how your host is set up, maybe you need to restart the server or wait a while for it to check the new .htaccess. Best to go to your host with these questions.

@Ashley, thanks for quick response in a sunday. I am talking to them about this problem.


And about the sound bug on case sensitive servers, when next version will be released?
