Host games

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jul 18, 2011 1:06 pm

Hello, I'm french so sorry if I don't speak very well. I downloaded Construct two days ago and I've a problem, could you help me please ?

I would like host my games in the Internet, as it is done in http://www.scirra.com/construct2/demos. I would like that people are not forced to download my game in order to play it.

I hope that I was understandable, please help me !

Hi darknoo, all you need to do is upload all the exported files to a server.

If you don't have a server, try signing up for Dropbox and putting it in a public folder!

Thank you for your answer.

I tried Dropbox, but when I see the file with Dropbox, this is a white screen (the file is OK without Dropbox). Have you an explanation ?

Do you have a URL we can look at of your attempt of uploading your game? It should be easy to spot what you have done.

That's the private link. You need to give the public link.

Don't mean to hijack this thread, but I just tried with the demo game on Firefox 5 and I get a white screen.

Here's the link if anyone is willing to try:

@zenox98, it works in some browsers but not others. I think it's related to a bug I've fixed for the next build.

Sorry to bump this old thread, but I have the same question.. for some reason dropbox didn't work for me, so I was wondering if are there any other free servers just so I can try my game and show some friends?

If not, maybe a cheap server?

Thanks!

edit: also, I'm a real noob when talking about servers and stuff, what do I have to look in a host to be able to host Construct 2's games? HTML5? Java? PHP?andreyin2011-10-19 05:38:00
