How do I reduce game.zip size?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Jul 27, 2014 10:06 am

It's a small game but is 28 megabytes. I need it to be only 10 megabytes to upload to arcade. HOW? lol I went into zip file, deleted all my unused sprites or ones i accidentally hid somewhere, but its still 28 megabytes.

What about sprites image frames?
Have you used the crop tool in the image editor?

yeah but i got to share it thru a google drive link to people. I used the "get rid of empty space tool" on some things. Bakcgrounds are actual sky images, high res. around 1,000 kb for both backgrounds i used. Sprites were drawings with empty space cropped out.

If you exported in node-kit, the file includes the chrominum files to run the application. That would explain it maybe.
